Thor got Presents!

There's a lady in New Hampshire who gets lots of free samples of stuff to try out, either in the knitting world or the dog world. And since she's got 4 dogs, she has lots of critics to assist her. So a couple of weeks back, Nichole and her assistants tried out a Planet Dog ball, and offered one to a commenter. As luck would have it, Thor won - on his birthday! Nichole shipped the ball to Thor, and he got it on Saturday.

The helper who fetched Thor's box from the mailbox (notice the ASPCA sticker on the box, which told Thor it was his) immediately helped cut it open.

Thor sniffed at the goodies lined up on the edge of the table, but being a very mannerly fellow, he did not try to snag any.
He watched the unwrapping.

He carefully inspected his ball,
but he really wanted the beef chew.

That sucker was gone in a matter of minutes.

Thank you, Nichole, for such happy presents!

Super Happy Time for darling Thor!!!

And two very special humans (of the lot he loves) helped Thor to his fun time gift - well done Mark and Marjie!!

Congratulations to Thor's human Mama for wearing such a beautiful dress (wonderful colours within the paisley style swurls).

XXX from Michelle, and silence for now (in a loving way) from my darling Zebby-Cat Cooper

Woah - not paisley (apologies) but a really fun print that reminds me of childhood 1970s ghastly fabric - hope your home is crimpolene free!!!

Ha ha! Momma's eyes went right to your mom's dress too. Flashback!

Cool toys. Let me know if they are mastiff proof or not.

What a gentleman! Thor, you are an inspiration to dogs everywhere - or should be. Gretchen follows your example and waits like a lady, but Sissy... well, we still have some work to do.

Congratulations, Thor. It looks like you got lots of goodies. Those Fruitables are one of our favorites. Now you and your boys can play ball after dark. We love our glowballs and make Mom throw them for us at night so we can run all over the place. It's lots of fun.

Aww... so glad to see such a happy Thor! Great pics.. my fave is the one of him looking up at the ball in your hand... LOVE!!!!!! :)

Those Merrick chews are a favorite in our house and have replaced traditional rawhide. In fact, we ordered a whole box of them from our wonderful friend who happens to own a grooming shop and lets us order such goodies!

Awww... I just love a guy with good manners, but the look on his face is absolutely priceless!
Enjoy your goodies, Thor!

Such a well mannered dog ~ and such nice pictures.....definitely tells the story :)

Oh Thor! You should teach your humans that when you get a parcel, they should let YOU open it!! That's half the fun of getting one - tearing open the box to see what's inside!

Congrats on your great pressies! I would love a Planet Earth ball too!

Lucky Thor! Chew bones aren't meant to last more than a few minutes - anyone who says different sure is weak-eater.. :o)
