Trooper Thornton

Some of you might be familiar with the great John Wayne movie, The Quiet Man. John Wayne plays a character named Sean “Trooper” Thornton who moves to the Emerald Isles to escape the boxing demons that haunt him. There he meets the beautiful Mary Kate Danaher and marries her, much to the disgust of his brother “Red” Will Danaher. From there wackiness ensues leading up to the best fight scene ever in a movie. If you haven’t seen this movie, you should be ashamed of yourself. It is a classic and John Wayne never looked better.

I wonder if this Trooper has any demons from his past? He’s only three months old so I would hope not.

Mom’s good working buddy John and his family suddenly lost their beloved dog Tanner a few weeks back. As with all heartbreak, God always allows a little sunshine to come through. For them, it is Trooper! Hooray!

They picked him up at the Downey Animal Shelter, the same place mom and dad got Snickers. What a co-inky-dink! Trooper is obviously a scrappy looking young man, and is so smart that both Mensa and the Rand Corporation are looking to recruit him. That would be a good thing because us pooches need someone on the “inside” if you know what I mean.

While John and his family would never dream of replacing their Tanner, it’s nice that they have opened up their hearts and home to little Trooper.

Hooray for Trooper!!!!!
