...to never take things for granted...to not assume that there is tomorrow...lessons learned. My Matute went to heaven this past Monday, 1-2-12...a sweet, loving, fun and incredible basset hound - who never knew for one day he was a dog. Owner of the house and my heart - life was about Matute. The feeling of loss and emptiness in his absence is unimaginable - leaving a void in what was once an overflowing shelter of play, fun, love and life. I never imagined the heartbreak of losing my best friend, my baby. I never imagined that this day would come so soon. I am comforted by the support of friends and family..I am grateful for the kindness and compassion...
...a piece of my heart has gone to heaven with my Matute...the love he gave me was unconditional and life changing...a gift I will always cherish.
