Thor's New Friend

So, eldest son's girlfriend said she's leery of big dogs. She had a beagle sized dog as a child, but the biggest dog she'd ever seen was a German Shepherd. Thor spent a day trying to get her to do more than say, "Nice doggy."
And he succeeded. So he sang to her.

Then he laid on her feet to help keep her warm.

SUCCESS! She wanted her picture taken with her boyfriend and "the biggest dog ever!"

Happy Thorsday, everyone! May your friends also be concerned that your feet are warm enough!

I've been so cold lately!! In the evenings I lie on the couch and call three of my fur friends over to keep me warm. It works.

I think Thor could win anyone over.

Thor could win anyone's heart - he's such a sweet boy. Your son and his girlfriend look so cute together.

I can feel her anxiety I would be a little nervous around a dog that was bigger than me too...

Can't help but note she's a cute redhead...

And I agree... Thor could win anyone over. I've already told Cherry Pie if he does breed Sophie (not any time soon, of course!) I want pick of the litter. Male or female, with my two precious girls?

I don't know how you couldn't love Thor. Beau thinks he needs to convince everyone he's worth loving too.

Cute couple! g

Good job, Thor. You can't help it if you are big, just more of you to love.

Sweet, sweet Thor. Of course he won her over. He's a good boy. You are so faithful about remembering every Thorsday.

So nicely and gently done, darling Thor. Mike and Ashleigh look so very good together, with Thor the bonus in the photo.

Happy times for all!

I love Thor. Ben and I were talking the other day and decided when we have kids, we're going to get a big dog trained to protect them so they can frolic about the neighborhood and be safe. A big, gentle dog with Bear and Bitty. HA!

But we went out to this ranch with a huge Great Dane and Ben loved the Great dane....we might have to go with something a wee bit smaller...

I like big dogs! The biggest I made friends with was an Irish wolf hound..not as much weight as a St.Bernard or a Mastiff- but taller, and longer!

Nichole said...

Aww... Thor is such a great big dogy ambassador!!! Good job!

What a charmer that Thor is. The "kids" look so cute, Ah, young love:)

My feet are never warm...

it's true, with Mastiffs; more to hold, more to love :o) Love his crossed paws - Bundy does that all the time now, does it mean he is a grownup now?
