Pet of the Week-Mosey

“Roll Tide! My name is Mosey and I am a Cavapoo. I’m one year and four months old and am the pup of proud parents, Cade and Anna Leigh Kilcrease of Brantley. They have taught me how to recognize over 30 words and when I need to go out and potty, I let them know by ringing a special bell. I am still young, so my parents can’t really understand that I am already a loyal fan of the incredible University of Alabama. So, they keep asking me over and over, ‘Would you rather be an Auburn Tiger or be dead?’ I am proud that they are teaching me about what is important in life and the value of being an Alabama fan so please don’t tell them that I just started passing out every time they ask the question, so they think I am just not sure about my allegiance to the Crimson Tide. I have them trained to kind of feel bad for me when I fall over and then they give me a treat! I hope they don’t catch on to me any time soon.”
Mosey is a very picky eater. His parents have attempted to incorporate several brands of dog food into his diet but Mosey has only agreed to happily eat personally portioned Farmer’s dog food, a nontypical dog food made and delivered fresh.
Mosey the Cavapoo, half King Charles Cavalier Spaniel and half Poodle, weighs 18 pounds. He was part of Cade’s proposal to Anna Leigh and an engagement gift to his now wife. Mosey adores car rides where he scans the terrain for deer from his perch on the center console, alerting his owners when a deer comes into view. He loves going to the park, chasing birds and squirrels, playing hide and seek with his dad, trips to see the grandparents, playdates with his best pals Lexa the German Shepherd, and Lucie, the mini Jack Russell, snuggling, sleeping in, and cheerios.
