Wipe Your Paws!

It's been bitter cold here for about 2 weeks; we've not reached 25 degrees in that time. On Monday morning, I noted with alarm that when Thor went out, one of his back legs hit ice from his water bucket, and started to go out from under him. We immediately called Jeffrey at work, and told him to go get Thor a door mat, so this wouldn't happen again.

Isn't it great?

And here's how Thor is spending this balmy 17 degree morning: hibernating!

Happy Thorsday, everyone!

That is a great mat! Like it a lot. Thorbaby seems to be handling the bitter temps okay otherwise, no? (I wouldn't be).

That's right! My good buddy Thor can't afford to be all slipping and sliding around. What good humans you have. Watch out Thor! No more ice walking. And why is it so cold at your house anyway?

Slobbers,

Thor rules! And I love the quick and decisive action you took to avert a disaster.

That's a perfect mat for the big guy. I like how he's relaxing with his paws crossed , staying warm and dry.

Thor is deserving of nothing but the best. The mat is top notch. Love how he is relaxing in the warm.

Poor Thor! I love his mat!

Thor has the right idea...! Staying comfy on the inside while it's so cold on the outside!

Pretty smart if you ask me!

Channon said...

Phew! I'm glad our favorite big guy is comfy. We used to have a mat like that, but the snow last year ruined it... Time for another?

Thor, buddy, you can sing with us anytime. We can use a nice deep voice like yours. Mom is planning to write some more songs for us soon.
Tsar, Fudge and Noah, too
