1000 posts. Really. We are stunned. As we have said before, we started the original website because we were grieving for the loss of our wonderful Nikita and wanted to record a few memories of her. We thought a few friends might visit, but who knew there was this whole world of dog bloggers out there that would actually follow our stories – and whom we would follow as we got to know their dogs. Thank you all for following our stories and sending us your comments and emails. All we have to say is . . . . . 1000 more.
And even more amazing – nearly 18,000 comments have been posted on this blog. Fair enough, actually many, many more, but we delete the spammers with a vengeance, so 18,000 real people comments. And what we found was how many of those comments came from people that also believed in animal rescue. Animal charities. Animal causes. So we could think of no better way to celebrate our 1000th post than to pick a random commenter and send $50 to their favorite animal charity. One More Day. Post your comment. Name your charity. We cut off the competition tonight. Check back Saturday to see who the lucky cause will be.

Joplin Humane Society – 35 Nominations
Texas Husky Rescue – 22
Golden Retriever Rescue of Houston – 17

This Week's Thundering Herd Special Features
Weekly thoughts from our Hu-Dad with the latest updates on his writing projects, the books he's reading, and a gratuitous dog photo of us.
What Weather When?
March 26, 2023
How do you dress for a day in the Western North Carolina Mountains? Just answer what weather when? Good luck with that.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
The Queen and Decorum
Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
A belated congrats… 1000 posts is such an amazing accomplishment! 🙂

Congratulations on your 1000th post!!! Mom says we will never make it there. We are still plugging for the Joplin Humane Society, but we will be happy no matter who wins, because the money will definitely benefit some animals who could really use it.
Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Golden Retriever Rescue of Houston
All the organizations are worthy of the donations with what this country is going thru. It’s hard to pick just one.
I nominate the organization we got our last adoptee from a year ago this month. Australian Cattle Dog.
We love her so much.
Carolina ACD Rescue and Rebound of NC and SC
Last day to vote so we will go with
Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue,Delray, W. Va.

Congratulations from Ice ‘n Ayla on your 1000th posting. Don’t know where our day would be without reading/seeing postings by the THUNDERING HERD. We’ve come to know you all, and can relate to a lot of your adventures.
CONGRATS on 1,000 that is just awesome.
Again…plug for Louisville Weimaraner Rescue. 🙂
Many Congrats to YOU!!!
I’d like a vote to go to Animal Haven…
Nice that Joplin has so many votes, but they’ve gotten lots of donations of both money and supplies (over $20,000 worth of supplies from their Amazon Registry last I heard!) There are so many other shelters that are also in need.
BAD RAP 🙂
1000 posts, many congrats. I bet you are glad you did this when you look back over the old posts.
Still rooting for Oregon Greyhound Adoption.
We are worried. Since you delete spam comments, do we need to worry? After all, Golden Retrievers posting on a Sib site might be considered spam….. Of course you delete all comments from Squirrels, that would be a given. But do you allow cat comments? Or are they spam as well? Decisions, decisions….
Congratulations on number 1,000, may you have many, many more. Do you suffer from tired paw syndrom?
Mogley G. Retriever
Congratulations on 1,000 posts! That’s a lot of dedication and commitment! I haven’t followed you from the beginning, but once I did find you, I was hooked. Just when I think I have a favorite member of The Herd, someone else does something funny and endearing. Thank you for sharing The Herd with all of us!
You know we’re going to vote for Quad Cities againg! 😉
I vote for Joplin Humane Society- they seem to be in the most need right now, but any rescue group is good!
Congrats on 1000! I wonder how many I have… Hmmm…
I hope for another 1000!
My vote is going out to Taysia Blue yet again!
WOOHOO!!!!!! Congrats on 1000 & here’s to 1000 more!! We feel like ya’ll are family!!!! Keep the stories coming!! Thank you Nikita for bringing your humans into the “wonderful” world of sibes!!!
