Skoll in Norse mythology is the wolf who chases the sun. There's another wolf, Hati, who chases the moon. Wrath borrowed heavily from Norse mythology, which is one of the things I liked about it.
This is the inspiration for his name
I don't play WoW and I was oblivious to the vodka and chewing tobacco that share the name. I've always said I wanted a Skoll and a Hati, and possibly a Fenrir. I figured the first two are uncommon enough dog names. Still deciding on what I'd want for his registered name if we get into anything competitive. Possibly Chasing the Light Bringer or Stalking the Daylight. RFR and Vivienne
: Thank you for the thumbs up on his weight. Perhaps I'm just too used to Titan's fat butt and Mocha's fuzz hiding their ribs. Once he switches completely to the EVO and settles completely, he'll be my walking buddy and if possible I'll be having him with the trainer who is willing to get into sports with me
I did speak to her about him, she wants to evaluate him (free) before she puts him in a group class since he has a history, but is confident that he'll succeed. She's incredibly nice as well and +R only.
He's velcro to the core, spent the entire 6 hour drive home with his head on my shoulder licking my face and ear even though he had a peanut butter kong I'd given him. When we were waiting to get the tire replaced on the car I was sitting down and he climbed into my lap, resting his head on my shoulder and almost falling asleep. When he's NOT in his crate or on a walk, he's been sitting next to me, leaning against me while worrying at one of his toys.
She did give me his "stuff"; some toys, a blanket, and his food as well as a reflective leash and the EZ-walk. He spent his time out of the crate this morning going over each of the old and new toys figuring out which one he likes best. The answer is the hedgehog which he chewed the nose off within about 5 minutes
Thank you everyone for your well wishes and compliments! I think he is an exceptionally handsome boy and a lovely personality to match. He's quite a goober.
