How much is that doggie in the window!!!!!!


After some long soul searching and lots.....and I mean LOTS of browsing and studying, we have decided on a new pooch for our family!!!!!



I wanted a little something different at first. I thought at first I was going to go with a bulldog of some type and then I researched a Newfoundland(which by the way one day I will own....oh yes I will!) and ultimately I would of loved to have a Neapolitan Mastiff if any of you are unfamiliar with one I am posting a picture of a famous one! The first person who can post the correct answer I will give you a surprise!!!! Here's the picture!




SO any way back to what we got!!! Well drum roll please.......


This is THOR!!! He takes his name the Asgard's god of thunder. A viking legend!



His father was Zeus and nobody wanted to call him Hercules but wanted to call him something else! So we came up with THOR!


He is a German Shepherd and is a silver breed and will look a lot like his mom I have included this picture of his mom and dad! His mom being the smaller of the 2 with the blacker snout.Zeus is the ladies man to the left!!!
He is a cutie and I have attached the following video to see the killer in action!!!

I want to thank some people! I want to thank Paul of Silver Mountain Shepherds! I want to thank my mentor in this process Greg Gordon!! He is a true friend and the best damn trainer of dogs I know!!! (So if anyone needs help with their pooch let me know!) Most of all I want to thank my beautiful wife and her patience and understanding through my almost obsessive search for a new dog! I know she understands and I also want to thank her for helping feeding ,cleaning and sopping up some of those messes!!! It is more than greatly appreciated!!!More than she will know! Even if I am a freaking moron about it sometimes!! Thanks Heidi and I love you!!!

  4. I know who the pic of the dog is... It's got to be the big dog from Harry Potter, I think it's Hagrid's Dog. Whataya think? By the way, VERY cute dog. I hear it has an AWESOME temper! I'm so jealous!
