Today, our family's most faithful and loyal friend is 10 years old. I thought you'd like a look at being a mastiff in this corner of the world.
Is there anything cuter than a 7 week old mastiff puppy? I don't think so.
he's always wanted to join in whatever was going on.
And, of course, to be right in the middle of his people, even on his first day home.
He went picnicing at a friend's lake cottage on his first Fourth of July. That's a chewed up paper plat beside him; he was destined to be spoiled.
Here's Thor at 13 weeks old - growing fast!
Back at the lake cottage 2 years later, for another 4th of July celebration! Of course, he was still right with the little boys.
He's still right in the middle of his boys.
He was a handsome 2 year old.
Plenty of people joined him in celebrating his 6th birthday, too, complete with hat.
Today, he's a little grayer, but still right wherever his people are.
Tonight Thor will be having his birthday cake! More pictures tomorrow, I'm sure!
