Thorin is a sweet pup who is living up to his reputation as an explorer. December was his first month away from Mama Freya, so lots of changes. He is a quick learner, walks well on leash, and settles well in public. In his first month with his temporary sitter, he went for lots of walks, checked out Home Depot, a couple of coffee shops and a brewery. He also played in the snow with his brother Samwise. He is also learning some good life skills and appropriate behaviour from released PADS dog Sprout, who lives at his sitter’s home. He is a party animal who likes to play hard and then crash. He snores and makes cute sounds. It must be his dwarf/hobbit background.
