Mort is doing great. He has really become a part of our family, and we forget what our lives were like without him (except for vacuuming up the hair!). He and Heidi the dachshund are best buddies…we have to buy them each really big bones, because Heidi was stealing his large one and Mort was stealing her small one. So now they’re both happy.
Mort LOVES the snow. On our walks and hikes, he likes to stick his entire head into the snow, and then roll around in it. The boys make him fetch snow balls, which then disintegrate, of course, which totally baffles him, but doesn’t stop him from chasing another. He is totally fascinated by the cats, who are learning to tolerate him and give him a wide berth. He attempted to play with the boys’ snowman today, which he quickly decapitated.
He is enrolled in obedience classes, which begin January 4th, 2006. We live in a very rural area, and classes are only offered sporadically, so this is the first class that’s been available. I’m sure he’ll do great, as he loves to please.
Thanks again for choosing us as his forever family. He gives us so much joy (and warmth at night!) and friendship, and he’s such a great addition to our family.
