We said goodbye to our sweet guardian, our silly poochie, our wonderful Mattie today (8/8/18). We adopted her at 30 dog years old in August 2009. She was quiet, loving, and always underfoot in her efforts to protect us. Mattie never met a snack she didn’t like (even the occasional crayon). She was a good sport about wearing accessories for her April Fool’s Day birthday picture each year. She leaves a big hole in our lives, because we loved her so much.
