She lived a very happy life on the farm here in Eaton, NH. She
liked helping in the garden and in the orchard (always eating
a few apples!), running in the field with her friend Moqua, swimming

digging in the snow. Most of all, she just liked being next to
her master and watching what he was up to next.

in the lake and then- in her final hours- in the arms of her
master. We all miss you Mattie! You will always be remembered!
Here's to all the special dogs in our lives!!
