Loki loves lying on this couch.  It has been his favorite place since he was a puppy, about four years ago.  You can see that the couch has a bit of wear and tear from Loki's bouncing and romping on it.  When his Mom first moved into the house, it was her first time to live all on her own.  She got furniture from Goodwill, then decided what the place needed was a good dog.  She went online to find what dogs were available for adoption in her area and found Loki.  He was named Blue then, but he turned out to be a bit of a mischief-maker, so his name got changed to Loki.  He is an Australian Shepherd/Siberian Husky mix and has one brown eye and one blue eye.  He is very friendly and thinks that he is a lap dog, in spite of his size.  His Grandmama used to come over to check on him and play with him while the Mom was at work when he was the only furry and he still gets all excited whenever she comes over and insists on sitting in her lap.  Before Dana, the other dog, was adopted he used to amuse himself in the backyard by herding sticks and tree limbs.  Loki is the guardian of the house.  He makes several tours of inspection around the house and yard each day to make sure that there are no intruders around.  He loves the cats, though he has gotten a little grumpy with them at times, and lets them cuddle with him.  He wasn't too fond of Tybalt when Tybalt was first adopted.  Tybalt was fascinated by Loki's feathery tail.  Loki had quite a time convincing Tybalt that his tail was not the best kitty toy ever.  They are good friends now.

                                    Loki was a mischievious pup.
                                    He always wanted to know "What's up?"
                                          He bounced on the couch
                                          Until it said, "Ouch!"
                                    He doesn't bounce so much now he's all grown up.
