So What Has Morris Been Up To?



So some of you might want to know what Morris has been up to for the last two weeks.

Morris went to stay with a friend in town while hubby and I do the daily 2+ hour one way trips to the UW Carbone Cancer Center and the VA Hospital in Madison, WI for cancer treatments.

We felt it was totally unfair for Morris to have to spend endless days alone without 'his humans'.  I knew that I wouldn't be able to give him the attention he likes or deserves nor would I have time for walks and hikes.

So Morris is residing with my former employer.

Morris used to go to work with me at the Chiropractor's Office in town.  He was a big hit with the patients.


So Morris is back at the office, greeting patients and walking them to the treatment room and then escorting them to the door when they leave.

He apparently gets a lot of attention and petting.
Now that he is nearly 11 years old, he gets pretty tired after a long day at the office, but he is happy and working!

I stopped by with the grand kids for a bit yesterday when we were in town. Morris was ecstatic and I think he actually wanted to leave with us, but our tiny house is full with company right now.

And Dr. John looked as though he was worried that we might take Morris away with us.
I asked if he was tired of Morris.
"NO!"

So Morris remains for the time being in town, being a town dog, being a 'greeter' at the office.
Dr. John said he was extremely popular with the patients.  Some had even asked if Morris would be 'in' when they made their appointments with him.

So that is what Morris has been up to lately.

It must be so hard not having Morris with you, but it is great for everyone that he can be an office dog. So much better than sitting home alone. Hang in there.

Yes I miss Morris! Today the grand kids are taking Dixie the hound for walks, and she is getting a lot of loving and petting.
