Thor the Dock-Diving Burglar

One month ago, I wrote about Thor and how he broke into my house by pushing his way through a perfectly good window screen. I thought about putting bars over all my windows to keep burglars like Thor out, but I did not take such drastic action. And now I regret it.

My house is built on a hill, and when Thor came in the house via the back window, he was level with the back yard. The windows in the front of the house are at least six or eight feet above the front yard, so there was no need to worry about burglars like Thor -- or so I thought. But when I left Thor and the other dogs in the house and went onto the front porch to change a light bulb, all of a sudden I heard a loud CRASH and then a louder rustling noise. I looked over, and there was Thor. This time, instead of breaking INTO the house, he broke OUT of the house, and ruined yet another window screen in the process. Fortunately he fell into a large evergreen bush and was not injured. In fact, he looked quite proud of himself as he walked up to me. I wonder if he thinks I’m playing hide-and-go-seek with him!

So I’ve learned two things from this. First, I believe Thor would make an excellent Dock Diving champion in the Heavyweight division. And second, I really need to stop leaving windows open when Thor is around.

I don't know about THAT... THOR just MIGHT go through BOTH the Screen and the WINDOW!!! I'm just sayin!

I am so in love with Thor!! I guess he sees you having all this freedom to go in and out as you please and he decided that was good for him too.

Thor is quite the class cut up - he certainly gives Ziggy a run for his money!

Look at those eyes - he looks like such a sweetheart!

Yikes! Good thing he wasn't injured! How do you stop that from happening?

whoa! he's intense!

i had an akita mix foster go through a window once, just once. it was freaky - i wasn't home, but he was sleeping on the porch when i got back.

good luck stopping thor! i ended up having to crate our break out foster whenever i wasn't in the same room with him or if he wasn't sleeping.
