Arrival Story: Loki just came to live with us today. He was one of the three dogs my brother had. Loki's day to day is going to be very different than what it was, hopefully he will settle in and enjoy himself.
Bio: He is a monster of a dog. Like 180lbs. He is very overweight but we will be working on that. Even at his normal weight he is huge. He is very mild mannered excet concerning one of our other dogs. Hopefully they will fall in after a bit. Loki has little energy which is another thing we will be working on. He doesn't play, hasn't been walked. That will all be new.

7 facts about me!

7. Sometimes I bark and don't really know why.
Well, I officially weighed 191 lbs last month. I probably weigh a little less now. Mom says I look like a Sharpei dog when I sit because of my loose skin from losing weight. I hike right along with the other dogs. I chased a bunny and I really ran! And my biggest new thing is that I can go up and down the stairs now! I am happy about this because my mom goes up there a lot and I would miss her while I waited downstairs. At first Penny the Min Pin wasn't going to let me up there but mom makes her move aside from the top of the stairs so I can come up. Now I can follow mom around every second of the day! She calls me her stalker, whatever that is. I rolled in something lovely the other day and now she calls me her stinky stalker. :-) She keeps talking about a bath when the weather is warm enough. I can't get a good one now because I am just too big and heavy for the facilities so I have been getting a spray on no rinse bath. Mom says it doesn't help much with the dead thing stinky I rolled in. I get along just fine with everyone except for an issue or two with Penny. It took awhile for me and Temper the Lab Mix to find our places but now we hang out together with no problems. They say Penny is territorial but everyday we understand each other a little better.
Wow! It's been two weeks. I LOVE it here! Everyday I go for a hike with my new brother and sisters. Sometimes my brother doesn't go because it is too cold. Anyway, I can go the WHOLE way now! I'm still slow and periodically have to sit and rest but there was one day I went the whole day without sitting! I go up and down hills, by a stream with a spring- but it is frozen now, I up a path with big rocks. There are so many smells I can't keep up with them all, and SO much room. I know I'm a big boy so wide open spaces feel so good. Then I go inside and get a drink and rest. If it isn't too cold we go back out and play. I watch mostly. I have tried to join in a romp a time or two but I don't think I'm quite sure what the rules are. My new mom had been rolling tennis balls by me but I really don't find them interesting. What I do find interesting is the stuffed toys. The other day I noticed mom's big pink slipper. I liked the way it smelled so much I picked it up and laid down with it. Then I got up and happened upon a basket full of stuffed animals that smelled like my brother and sisters so I selected a few and too it over to where I had the slipper. Mom says I would have made a good daddy because I carry my babies around just like my sister Heidi. But mom says I can't be possessive of them. I have to share. I don't know about that.
Anyway, then we eat. I eat seperate because I have moist stuff in my food. I wasn't eating much but my appetite has improved quite a bit but not enough to get any fatter. Then we go out for potty & play, then we all come into the tv room and cuddle up and watch tv, humans, dogs, and even birds are in the tv room. Then at night I sleep next to the bed.
Compare this to a cold cement basement floor! My mom gets excited when I wag my tail and have a smile in my eyes. Sometimes she is so happy she almost cries.
