|8/29/10: Sometimes I lose track of a dog. I suspect Mozart has crossed the Rainbow Bridge as he would be 14 by now.|
Email from Mozart's new family: 10/23/07:
Mozart is still the BEST dog in the world!!! He is barking a lot more, so
Mozart is not only fitting in well here at home but with the neighborhood
dogs as well. We try to take Mozart on walks everyday. He tends to be
stubborn when it has rained. Everyone is just amazed by how big and sweet
he is. However, they say his name should be Polar Bear.
5/02/07: Mozart was a stray picked up by animal control. When no one claimed him and his time ran out, I came to his rescue. Covered in mats and fleas and ticks, this handsome boy went straight to my wonderful groomer who gave him a bath, got out the nasties and gave him his name. So far he has just been a big fluffy Teddy Bear willing to do anything asked of him.
We suspect he was a guardian dog and just got too old and was 'thrown away' as so many Pyrs are in this area. He deserves some pampering and human companionship in his retirement years.
He got a thorough going over at the vet's, including CBC and snap test for Heartworm, etc. He is generally healthy, but needs the usual worming and ehrlecia treatment although he is not symptomatic. He is thin at only 81 pounds but the worming should solve that. I can take care of the health part, but only someone out there reading his story can give him the forever love he has surely waited so long for.
