Hiking instead of Doggy Park...pics

Well Thor turned a year on Nov. 28, and now that he's not a lil puppy anymore he's going thru some changes. He's starting to challenge me or push my buttons to see what he can get away with, but the biggest difference has come when I last took him to the doggy park, he's being more challenging with other dogs, as far as being more aggressive with them, actually growling, fighting with any dog that gets to close to me, and I actually noticed with puppies he is over aggressive with them if they show any passiveness, I got some great advice from a few of you guys on here, and will be taking him hiking more often. I love seeing Thor running at full speed, I don't keep him on a leach when we go hiking, he enjoys running ahead of me or behind me sniffing n just curious about the surroundings. He enjoys jumping in the ponds or in the mudd....as you can see on the pics. Leaving him without a leach is not a problem, we've encountered other folks on the trails, and as long as I can hear them or see them, all I have to do is whistle, or he actually comes to a complete stop, and waits for me. Thor is 13 months now and his weight is 75lbs., but as you can see he's not over weight, I do understand he is still growing up, and will be filling in more as he gets older this year, so I want to keep him in shape.

Thank you Sashadog, you are so right about that, the silly lil things that they do once they know they've gotten in trouble. He has this new lil game that he thinks is real funny, I let him out at about 3am, and he wants to play where he comes back to the storm door, then as I open it for him he takes off running and stops and will look at me, wanting to play, not realizing that I have 2 be at my office early in the morning. Once I close the door, he comes back to the door barks at me, and will wait till I go back to open the door, and once again he takes of running like a bat out of ****...and will proceed to do it over n over till I ignore him, and he gets his feelings hurt and i'll go back out to get him about 30minutes later....and as I let him in my room he jumps on my bed and lays on my side on my pillows...and will lay their looking at me.....

Folkosmom, you are so right, they seem to go out of his way to get in the mud, or in the ponds, but all that means is I have to walk him way longer so he can dry up, which helps me to try n stay or get in shape at my age...

I always said if somebody spit on the ground, my boys would be in it!

I made sure when I bought a car that it had leather seats, so much easier to maintain and clean when you run into that unexpected puddle!

Lovely pedigree. Falko is Mink and DDR on top with Fero and Karthago on the bottom.

He will be nine in February.

He really does look a lot like your dog. They have that leaner leggier look, although Falko is not so lean anymore. He is not well and if he wants another biscuit, he gets another one, and a cookie too! LOL!

How old is Thor?
