200 Posts

Well, cyber-paw pals this is post number 200. We can’t believe that we have barked that much. Dog Dad is remembering of warm summer days forty years ago, when he was just a small lad. It was during that time an incredible journey took place. A great rocket thundered into the Florida sky back then and traveled towards the Moon. The world watched in awe and hope as the rocket became a small dot then disappeared into the heavens. Like many hoomans, Dog Dad’s family gathered late at night to watch on the black & white “Where is the remote box” as a man stepped onto the moon four days later. Most hoomans who lived then can tell you were they were on that day. It was a moment of pride and great accomplishment during very troubled times.

Dog Dad stated that a dog named “Super” meant a lot to the family of the first person to step on the moon. That we should remember Super, and the positive impact dogs have on families. We believe dogs bring out the best in people. After all, we bring out the best in Dog Dad. We are thinking now of Super playing with Charlie, Higgins, Pudgy, Foxy, Great Uncle Bobby and all the other pups that have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. We bet when some-paw wants to hear a story, Super is among those telling tails of high adventure. While “Life is good,” we bet Rocket would bark that “Life is even better with a dog by your side.”

Happy 200th! What a wonderful recollection of the historic landing of the moon. We so totally agree with you that dogs make human lives better!

Dogs are the best thing that ever happened to most of us, that's for sure. I remember the moon landing. We all sat as a family watching the "where's the remote" even before we knew what a "remote" was! We had our dog Sam with us that night he's telling stories of our runs in the woods. He was a great dog. Thanks for making me take time to remember way back then.

my mum told me that the big rocket then started on her birthday and that it was very thrilling.
She also told me that her parents live close to where it was shot off.
This is all very intresting what 2-leggers can do!
