Morning Meanderings… Happy Birthday Mater!


Good morning!  Today is all about Mater!  Recently when looking at his papers he came with from the vet, I noted that he was born on March 6.  I made a note not to forget that. 😀

Mater came on our radar last July when my Navy son was home and had a friend who worked at a Vet near by and told him the story of Mater.  Mater was an abused puppy part beagle part basset hound who had a serious surgery at 10 weeks old because his owners were giving him alcohol.  After the surgery, Mater was placed in a foster home where he fell out of the back of a movie truck and broke his shoulder and had another surgery.


Hearing his story my heart went out to this little dog.  They were looking to find him a good home and were interviewing people.  I was told that many people had tried to get him and were denied.  They wanted to make sure whoever adopted him would provide him a “forever home”.

That third week on July, after an hour interview with the vet and three hours of waiting by the phone, we were told he was ours.

He fit right in…. played until he would fall asleep with bones still in his mouth.



He grew fast – but made best friends with Sammy.

Happy Birthday Mater!
