Tuesday was Thor's 8th birthday. He can't read a calendar, of course, so we're going to have his birthday cake on Saturday, after all of his people are home. Shhh! It's a surprise!
I thought you'd like to see some of Thor's baby pictures.
Here he is at 7 weeks old, June 24, 2001.
And the same day, walking toward the camera.
He wasn't a lap puppy for long. It was over before he hit 3 months.
At 13 weeks, again walking toward the camera. One thing we can say is that Thor has always been curious about what is going on, and always headed toward the least amount of action. We didn't see him before we got him, but having paid for the "pick male puppy," we had photos sent, and chose him because of this very characteristic. He has been an excellent value.
He was a very young graduate of something, in June of 2004, at age 3.
And very tolerant of then 4 year old Mark, put on the pony by one of his brothers. I know, I know, this isn't good for the dog, and in fact, he sat down immediately after the picture was taken. But he's great at posing for pictures, isn't he?
I leave you with a reminder from last summer of the joys of having a best friend.
