Thor Making a Mess

Someone (Thor) was bored so he knocked over his mirror and yellow bucket and pooped in his water bowl, Yuk!!Then he decided to drag out the hose…

Going For a Walk

Here is Thor in his new wagon going for a walk (ride) around the neighborhood with his doggie sisters. I think he wanted to get out and walk himself though…

Thor Working Out

We were in our bedroom and heard banging outside. We found Thor had lifted up a cast iron sink we had leaning against the house and crawled underneath it. That is one tough shell.

I’m Getting Bigger!

Thor is 20 lbs now, up about 3 lbs in 2 months. I guess we are feeding him well. Today I gave him a piece of Turtle Bone that I bought from Amazon.com. It’s got calcium in it that is supposed to be good for him. Nothing but the best for our little man.

Just finished dinner...fresh grass, yum!

Do Tortoises Like Baths?

My husband decided that Thor needed a bath..in our bathtub. I don’t think Thor was too exited about getting a bath. I started to see little fart bubbles followed by some grunting and then….poo and lots of it. I guess we scared the s#%t out of poor Thor. Yuk! He must have a huge bowel capacity. Afterwards he was all clean..inside and out.

What do you do with a tortoise on Easter? You paint him like an Easter egg of course.. A new yearly tradition I think. We used face paint which can be washed off with soap and water according to the package. Happy Easter from Thor.

Thor with his Dog Siblings

Thor and Ashley

Thor and Ashley

This is Thor in the backyard with his dog siblings, Ashley and Lily. They all get along pretty well together. Although Ashley, a black lab mix, gets a little excited at times and has to be watched closely when around Thor. I don’t think she’s always in control of herself and you never know when she might have a “crazy” moment.

Thor loves to walk around the backyard and sample all of the grass, flowers, dog poo and pine cones. I’m not letting him eat the poo and pine cones. I don’t think they are good for tortoises.
