Thorvi's 4th birthday

Thorvi 4 years old

Thorvi and Rebbi passed their Herding Instinct Tests on 4/11/15 at Raspberry Ridge Sheep Farm.

For his birthday, Jeanne says that Thorvi got a "FREE Rita's vanilla custard with the dog biscuit poked in the top...He finished it and was looking pointedly at the one Jim and I were finishing up, mixed with mango ice, and Jim gave him a taste on his spoon (I hoped no one was looking--) and an older lady employee saw him do that, and came out with another one!  We said no, he HAD had one, given to him by the young lady employee, so the second lady said, Well, he's seen this one, I can't take it back, and she put it down and Thorvi thought he had surely gone to heaven.  That dog was pretty happy...

What a handsome dude!

Getting a good brushing out!

At IcetoberFest, October, 2013, we had three of the five puppies from Truffle's first litter,
as well as Truffle and the sire of the litter, Roskur.  It was so much fun to
see them together.  I'm so glad Jim got these photos of the family reunion.

Truffle and Annie, and Susan with Fríða

This one caught Jeanne and me with funny expressions!
There were about 40 dogs at the gathering, and they ran around together most
of the day.  It was wonderful to watch them enjoying themselves.  Sometimes we had
trouble figuring out who was who.  That may be Thorvi, 3rd from left, and the puppy
on the left is Rebbi from Truffle's second litter.

Thorvald, one year, September 2012

Thorvi in the Conestoga River, August 2012.  Handsome, happy boy!

Smiling?  (Annie smiles)  Making faces at a sea monster?

Photos from our May 2012 visit with Thorvald.  We took Truffle and Annie.  Puppies are 8 months old. 
Thorvald has the orange collar, Annie has the blue one.

Almost too big to be Mommy's baby.  Well, they're never too big for that, but they may be too big to put over your shoulder!

Mert was trying to figure out how he could sneak him into the car and take him home...

The handsome fellow.
