Thor's Shopping Trip

It's that time of year again. You know, the time when they open the tree farm and dogs can take their humans on a grand adventure!

Let's go, Patrick! What are you waiting for?

Oh, wait. Mom says you're not as good a driver as Dan or Jeff. Maybe I'd better take over.
Thor took Patrick on his leash, and led him around the farm.
They visited sheep (who raced into their pen to hide), goats (who organized themselves in a circle for defense against this fierce predator), llamas (who came out of their pen to see what this peculiar pair was all about), and reindeer (who ignored them). Of course, there are no pictures of this, because Thor was moving much faster than any photographer could possibly go.

After the tree was selected, Thor was not sure he was ready to leave.

But we got him to pose with two brothers and the truck, then lured him into the truck with one of Dan's cookies. A fun shopping trip was had by all.

It is always good to have a big guy like Thor riding shotgun ~ Looks like he is a great guide to the perfect Christmas tree, too.

Merry Christmas...

Good for you, Thor. It looks like you had a good time shopping for a tree. Will you help decorate it?

You rode in the truck? Not me, no way! The only thing I will ride in is the mastiff mobile.

Slobbers,

great day out with the guys! good thing to bring Thor - I'm sure he can "persuade" salesmen to lower the prices...

Thor... *sigh* I just can't get enough of you, big guy!
I hope Santa Paws is good to you all of you tomorrow! (and that you get another cookie or two, since you so obviously love 'em!)

Merry Christmas, to you and yours...
