Morty the Dog

This is Morty the dog.  He was a much beloved dog, before his untimely passing from cancer.  A friend of mine shared this photo with me, saying it was a friend's dog.  He added that he loved this photo, as it showed Morty facing bravely into the wind, stalwart and unflappable.

Well, his spirit was unflappable.  His fur was madly flapping.

I found I immediately thought of Lionel Jeffries as King Pelinore in the musical film version of Camelot.

His whiskers had that same wild abandon.

Here's to our beloved pets - the Mortys of life - who give us joy and unconditional love - and sometimes make us laugh and smile.  They often show us amazing courage and faith in their short time here on earth. 

Rest in Peace, Morty.
