IMG_1977One year ago, this little skinny miniature schnauzer came to us. We named him Morty. He had been dropped off at the shelter, two years old, never groomed, and not neutered. Two days later, everything changed. He was, er, fixed, groomed (shaved), driven three hours and handed over to us. He arrived with the Polar Vortex.

He needed a sweater.


Louie is happy to have a friend, and in no time at all they have become inseparable.

Morty perfects the “look”.

And he patrols the front door.

Welcome home, little guy. We’re so glad you’re here. Happy gotcha day.

    Oh, I think this will be the loveliest thing I read today. Congratulations to all of you!

    I have a son named Martin but his brother always calls him Mort. I loved seeing your Mort… How do the dogs get along with your cat?

    We have two pit bulls – both rescues and two cats, also rescues. My vicious pit bulls are terrified of the older cat – she rules the roost. Don’t you wonder sometimes who rescued who? Congratulations to all.

      There is no question who rescued who! Our cat is 17 and Morty is alternately fascinated and terrified of her.

      Eva. Get two. Seriously. We will never again have only one dog. It’s the best thing — to see a dog being a dog. They play with each other all the time. It’s such a lovely relationship and Louie has blossomed since Morty came to live with us.
