I decided to get a dog, a poodle, because of my allergies. He was going to be any color but white. No fufu dog for me. For months, every weekend looking, putting my name on lists and then one evening there he was on pet finder. The next day I went to the shelter to get him. He was so friendly and happy. I was told I had to wait three days. Three days later I was there waiting for the shelter to open. I never noticed how matted he was until the officer told me. All I knew was that was my dog and he was coming home. I took him to the vet for a checkup and he shaved him. They brought out this little guy I didn’t recognize. Oh no a fufu dog, a white poodle, but too late he already stole my heart. He would follow me every where. Always come when called. Waited on the steps for me to come home or at the door when I opened it. Always ready for a car ride or a walk. He was loved until his last day nine years later. Matty, I didn't know I could love you so much and hurt so much when you were gone.
