Ode to the socks...

Handsome Boy After visit to the Vet

Matthew and Odin

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

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. :)


  1. The picture of Matthew and Odin shows how big he (Odin) is, well actually, how they both have grown. Odin worrying the turtle is quite funny, I bet he was disappointed when the turtle was moved to safety - or was he relieved that the threat to his people was gone :)

    He is such a cute little guy!

  2. You´ve got two lovely boys now and it sounds as if you´re proud of both of them.

    I´m so glad the turtle came to no harm and, by the way, I hope nobody´s actually wearing the socks when Odin attacks them!

    Did you know that in Germanic mythology, Odin is associated with healing, death, royalty, the gallows, knowledge, battle, sorcery, poetry, frenzy, and the runic alphabet? Battle and frenzy sound about right for your Odin but I reckon you can just ignore all the others....
