The mothers’ conditions and treatment in the “puppy factories” are atrocious, and if a puppy does not meet their “standards,” it is abandoned to its fate. Bertram, a 5-month-old Pomeranian dog, was abandoned by his breeders because he was “too large to sell,” according to his breeders.
“I flew all the way to Tulsa to get it, which was quite an experience.” They were heartbroken to say their goodbyes at the shelter, but he had gotten a scholarship.
Kathy claims she didn’t believe in love at first sight because it seemed mystical and impossible to her until Bertram hit her.
Kathy stated her feelings as follows:
“When he was a puppy, his small face, his blue bandana, his enormous paws, and his eyes looking in different directions whispered to me, I knew it would be him.”
Kathy’s love to her cat inspired her to create an Instagram account for her pet and film all of her daily activities. Bertram’s photographs have become well-known and have taken over social media; Bertie’s (as he is affectionately known) supporters number over 441,000 people.
Bertie’s mother isn’t surprised that her puppy has gained fame. She makes the following remark:
“Bert is incredible and makes people happy; the internet was designed for beautiful animals; and people require an antidote to everything bad.”
Many people come to Kathy’s art gallery to meet Bertie and take photographs with him, or to meet him with their dogs.
She continued, saying:
“He spends the entire day with me at the art museum, which he clearly enjoys.” Every afternoon, he takes me to his favorite spot, the dog park.”
