This month I am soooo proud and happy to present a sweet, adorable canine who has not only been a wonderful and supportive Twitter friend to Confucius Cat but also is an inspiration for helping others in this crazy would. As a side note, my sister Zelda who just passed OTRB was a ShithTzu and they are the sweetest most upbeat and happy dogs you can adopt. Anyway, here she is: Mattie.
My name is Mattie, some of you may know me as I tweet on Twitter as @MattieDog. I'm a sweet little, golden Shih Tzu who brings joy and love to everyone I meet. My momma and dadz believe I am a reincarnated buddha because I help them recognize the truly important things in life. I know it is my mission to see the positive in all aspects of life..sweet life, it is such a blessing. I came in to this world a little sideways - I was found wandering around the city, approximately a year old, without a care in the world. My parents found me in an animal shelter, and it's been a joyous journey since then. If you'd like to read the full story of my adoption you can do so here. My days are filled with a peaceable existence where I share my family's love with my furry sister and brothers - a menagerie of adopted, mostly special needs Shih Tzu's and one crazy little Chihuahua; and once a week my momma takes me to visit children who are receiving cancer treatments. I am very grateful for my time with the little ones, they have taught me that the spirit is a powerful thing.
That's me...MattieDog, a little dog making a big impact in this world!
What a cutie pie! Thank you so much Mattie for sharing your story and for being you. And thank you to your human parents who's generosity and compassion are to be admired.
And my appreciation and thanks to all the cats and honorary cats around the world who Purr 4 Peace. You add the vital positive energy of love to the universe. Bravo. I bow to you all. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
