Come meet Odin!

  • What is your dogs name? Odin
  • How did you pick his name? We had picked Moose but after seeing his dad we decided that name was too silly and didn’t fit. He needed a more serious name, so after arguing over names most of the 12 hour drive home we finally did some googling and settled on Odin
