Morty the Corgi has a unique fascination with koi fish, and his love for them has captured the hearts of his adoring parents. This adorable pup has become obsessed with the family’s koi pond. Morty’s love for the fish is so strong that he can’t help but run straight to the pond whenever the patio doors are opened.


The first time Morty encountered the koi pond, he went a little too far, but his owners have since learned to manage his excitement. They’ve discovered that Morty doesn’t want to hurt the fish; he simply loves watching them and checking in on them. However, they also have to be mindful of their neighbors, as Morty can get overly excited and bark loudly while hanging out at the koi pond.


To bring Morty back from the pond, his owners use food as a motivator. Morty is very food-driven, and this tactic has proven to be quite effective in distracting him from the fish. One day, Morty went a bit too far, and got overly excited. He fell into the pond but struggled with the one thing he does not like: water.

His humans tried using a ramp to help Morty get closer to the fish without another mishap, but he can be quite stubborn. To keep Morty safe, his owners have attempted to get him into swimming, but Morty remains hesitant. He prefers to sit on the edge of the pool and watch the other dogs, and his humans, swim from a distance.


One day, Morty’s owners found a floppy toy fish and thought it would be a perfect gift for their koi-loving pup. Morty was instantly smitten with the toy and would try to catch it like a cat, barking excitedly all the while. His love for the fish has grown so strong that his owners are considering getting more koi for their pond. But Morty is only allowed near them while wearing a life jacket.

Morty’s story is a heartwarming reminder that pets can bring joy and laughter into our lives in the most unexpected ways. As Morty’s owners put it, “With a Corgi, you don’t really know who’s actually the owner. It’s their world, and we just live in it.” This video is a must watch. It’s especially entertaining when Morty falls into the pond! You’ll love it!
