Odin... bring me the ball....

Odin loves to play ball in the yard. When I make a quick run home at lunch time from work to let him out of his crate (to do his business), we always play ball for about 15 minutes so he can get a little exercise before I have to head back to work. I love the way his ears flop up and down when he runs"... I think he will always look "puppyish" because of them.

He sometimes forgets that he has to surrender the ball to me if he wants me to toss the ball... but eventually he lets me have it... with a little nip to my fingers if he gets too excited! He's a monkey! I can't help but love that face! :)

Ode to the socks...

Handsome Boy After visit to the Vet

Matthew and Odin

Don't bother me... It's my peanut butter time...

Wet dog after bath... 

Odin Meets a turtle...

We've been having so much fun with our newest family member. Odin has stolen our hearts! even Matthew let me take a photo of him with the puppy!

Odin is a very active puppy... he loves to play play play... He love peanut butter and treats, he gets a treat when he comes to me when I call him, and when he makes potty or poo outside. We're working on things like "sit", "stay", "lay down", so much to learn!

No, he's not going to be able to get three tennis balls in his mouth like our lovely friend Dora, The vet doesn't think he is going to get very big... we have to wait and see... but he is growing like a weed.... He is over 20 lbs now.

Odin loves to play ball, and tug-of-war with socks... any sock will do... dirty or clean... it's a constant struggle of "that's not yours"... maybe the men will learn not to leave their socks on the floor, when they have no socks without holes in them. :)

He's finding his voice... not a lot of barking, unless a turtle comes for a visit, or he spots a ghost in the house... I think he see's shadows or will catch a reflection of himself in some thing around the house. He is a "woofer"... not a "yipper".

Jeff took the poor turtle to a safe location... no turtle was injured. :)
