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.
