“What’s a Loki?”

My parents spent a good amount of time after their beloved Terrier mix, Desi, passed before they were ready for another dog.

Forgive the blur, I didn’t do much serious photography until after this beauty died.

They left with a large, white “Lab/Anatolian mix” named Alvin. Long story short, the vet thinks Pyrenees mix (yasssss!) and his new name? Loki.
