It’s time for Mort’s 2 year update. He’s approaching 5 years old now,and is still a big, goofy puppy. He loves his 3-mile walks each day, and especially loves those walks that end at the lake!
His favorite game is “fetch the log”. Mort and Heidi the dachshund continue to be best of friends, and are often found napping together. Although he outweighs her by 80 pounds, he is a gentle giant..even 2 of the cats have learned to tolerate him. His manners have improved greatly, and he has finally stopped jumping on visitors when they arrive (we worked very hard on this one!). He often attends soccer games and cross-country meets, and loves being surrounded by teenagers (with 3 teenaged boys in the house, there’s always a new face in the house). He’s become a fixture in the neighborhood, and is truly a part of the family. Mort goes everywhere with us and he especially loves swimming and hiking. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
Thanks again for all that you do for orphaned pets.
