Stubborn to the Core, Was Our Mo

Mo (or Momo, as we liked to call him) was a great dog. We acquired him from another family who couldn't take care of him anymore, due to their changing living situation. He was 7 years old at the time, but full of energy and love.

It wasn't all perfect. He terrorized the cat (he said "play," she said "nay"), barked at every tiny noise, and sometimes had issues peeing in the house. We think it may have been a territorial thing (with another animal in the house), or perhaps stress from the move. But overall he was a great dog, and I miss the little guy. He'd always climb up into your lap for a snuggle, and loved to run around our yard chasing birds and moles and rabbits. As he got older, it became more difficult to manage his weight, but he was happy, and so were we.

RIP, Mo. You were always my little buddy.
