If you’ve followed the blog over the years
you are familiar with our Lab/Golden cross,
Matilda…everything you would want in a dog,
Almost 13 years ago, when we brought her home,
I sat in the back seat of the truck and held her tight.
Saturday morning, when she ‘went home’, I crawled in back of the Subaru, and did the same.
I think Hudson and Denton described her best when they said, “She was our friend.”

Oh no, Susan! I’m so sorry. I know how much y’all loved her.
Condolences. It’s difficult to lose a friend no matter what species.
Such a friend is a gift from God. May the warmth of the memories add comfort through the empty spaces in the home and yard.
So sorry Susan.
So sorry for your loss…but she did her job…bringing the family years of joy and love.
So sorry, she had a great life with your family, everything a dog could want.
Susan, I am so sorry about Matilda. I loved her the first and every time we came to see Josh’s day lilies. She was a sweetheart and so beautiful. Dogs just don’t live long enough. I have 2 that are 13 and one that is close to it. I cannot stand the thought of not having them. But…..I wouldn’t have missed sharing their lives for anything. Ruth Holt Bay City, Texas
I will try to send you a story about why dogs don’t live long enough. You may have seen it.
Susan, I am sooo sorry for your loss of Matilda! She was such a sweet dog. We will miss her when we come to visit! Dixie, our choc lab “went home” two weeks ago. She would have been 12 April 7. So I know exactly how you feel!
She always greeted me when I drove up to your house. What a sweetie. I’m facing the same situation with my Mattie, so my heart is aching for us both.
I was so sorry to hear about Matilda. She was a very special member of the family.
