Visiting Dog on Thorsday

You all remember that I got new stoves in December, right? And new refrigerators about a year ago? And a new dishwasher? Well, all of the replaced, but working, appliances were stored on my porch. And a friend who lives about an hour north was amongst hundreds or even thousands of families who suffered flooding last September. So we told our friend to rent a truck and come get these appliances for his own house, and for friends of his who suffered damage. The friend brought his dog along for the ride.

Here's my little guy, making friends with Dakota, using dog cookies. The way to a dog's heart is through his stomach, after all!

And then off the new friends went for a walk. That's the other way to a dog's heart, right?

Of course, Dakota is a very peppy dog, not like Thor, so he couldn't be allowed to romp off-leash. The front gate was open and he would have raced down the road to who-knows-where, and never found his way back, since he lives 60 miles away.
Happy Thorsday, everyone!

Happy Thorsday! I know no one can replace Thor, but are you all considering getting a new doggie?

Pam said...

What a beautiful dog. I bet your son was happy to play with a dog.

Oh we bet you loved having that visitor. Cookies and a walk, just perfect. That was so good of you to donate your appliances to people in need. Well done all. Have a wonderful weekend. No worries, and love, Carol (and Stella and Rory)

That's awesome you had a doggie visitor for Thorsday pics. I grinned to see the them. I'm sure your son was thrilled!

How wonderful that you could help out your friends and their friends.

It looks like Mark and Dakota had a happy time together. I note that Dakota is another beautiful red-head!

Those floods were just devastating by us too, Marjie. We only had a refrigerator and TV to give. Hopefully it helped a tiny bit...

Thanks for sharing, Marjie...

Aww - what a sweet dog. Our neighbors have a golden puppy and she is delightful to watch in the snow! I'm really enjoying having a puppy in the 'hood.

Delightful photos. And that was a very generous gesture, though I'm not at all surprised.

You have such a good heart!

Very good of the youngest to entertain the canine guest. They look as though they both enjoyed the walk.

I know you miss Thor so much. Are you going to get another pup eventually?

Kids and dogs were just made for each other.

how nice to spend time with the new doggy friend! What kind of dog was Dakota? A very dark golden retriever?
