Thunder is a 12 year old Westie who loves chasing squirrels and being outside. He loves going to the park and exploring the mountain trails at his Granny's. His pet peeves are baths and not getting to patrol his yard.

This is our Story

I moved to Myrtle Beach 4 yrs. ago and was so lost and lonely. One day, about 2 wks. later, I looked out my window and saw a little white dog tied outside laying in the sun. I flew out the door & went over & started playing with him, this went on every day for about 2 wks. Then his owner an older gentleman in his 80's came out and introduced himself (Wendell), he was no longer able to walk his little dog (Thunder) so I immediately volunteered for the job. We became fast friends, really good friends and as Wendells health declined I took over the care of Thunder. Wendell passed away Sept. 07 and he left me with his most treasured companion,Thunder. I like to say we saved each other, they saved me from depression, I saved them from loneliness. Thunder and I definitely have a special relationship, it's one that God put in the making especially for us. :)

Thunder truly is the "Thief of my Heart"
