Today’s Tripawd Tuesday is short and oh so sweet! Introducing a special rescue Tripawd named Mortimer, from Massachusetts.
He won the doggy lotto when his mom Mary brought him home! Here’s his story, as told by Mary after she bought him a new Tripawd Convert Harness to welcome him to the family.
Meet Tripawd Mortimer from Massachusetts
His name is Mortimer, but he answers to Morty. He’ll be six years old this May.
My husband is a double amputee courtesy of the war in Iraq in 2006, so when a local vet site posted a picture of Morty we immediately contacted the rescue and brought him home.
I’m an RN, so he gets extra special care here… the joke is that I collect amputees.
The rescue we adopted Mortimer from recently had a kitten come through with the same limb loss, and we immediately scooped her up, too. She was terrified of everything until she met Morty – she knows he is friend-shaped. Her name is Zelda, and she’ll be 2 in July. I’m including the pic I took from when they met!
