Mortimer simply adores Fritz, which is why, when she learned about the importance of canine oral care, she decided to schedule him a checkup with a veterinary dentist. Fritz's teeth are important to him, so they're important to Mortimer, too.
"I set an appointment to get them cleaned because he’s my best friend and I want him to live as long as he can!" Mortimer told The Dodo. Unfortunately, Fritz didn't get the memo.
When Mortimer came to pick her dog up from the vet after the cleaning, he wasn't shy about expressing his feelings about the experience: "When they opened the door he was just ... not thrilled," Mortimer said.
In fact, during the whole ride home, Fritz continued to give Mortimer the cold shoulder — refusing to make eye contact because of what she'd put him through.
