Uncle Mort is a 14.5 year old Italian Greyhound/Terrier mix. He's a little goofy, but in a nice sort of way. He, too, had to wait for a few days with his poodle companion before someone discovered that his human dad had passed away. Maybe that's why he's kind of odd, or maybe he's always been odd - we'll never know! He has no teeth, just like Roody, but fortunately for him it doesn't seem to slow his eating down or make his tongue hang out! Mort has recently discovered that he enjoys ear scritchies and other pets, so he's become a bit of a velcro dog lately. He also is quite accomodating to the other dogs who want to share his bed - I think that he enjoys the warmth and companionship. He's a sweet old guy, and we're lucky to have him around.
