Mortimer the Moose joined our family this Christmas. He is Owen's moose. They are friends. It is great.
However, a few weeks ago, Morty heard it was supposed to snow. Being a moose, he likes snow. So, when mom was out the day before he wandered out into the backyard looking for the coming snow. Supposedly he migrated on his own, at least that's what the red one is telling me.
Poor Morty was discovered the next day, when it did, indeed, snow! Though it seems his trip wasn't quite what he had planned and seemed to have run into several hardships.
So, Morty was rescued and brought in to thaw by the warm, toasty fire.
We'll see if Morty plans any more solitary migrations, or if he'll just choose to travel with his pack.
Just had to throw this pic in of Owen and Joe enjoying O's first snow! Love that little guy!
