Hi everyone!

It's been such a long time since I've posted. Everything is going really well, my family has just been very busy!

As most of you know, we lost our beloved Dog to cancer in April. We are still heartbroken. He and Matilda were wonderful friends, and while she liked becoming the centre of attention, we could tell she was lonely.

Matilda's eyes (or lack thereof) are doing wonderfully! She has adjusted so amazingly well. She really doesn't seem bothered at all that they're gone. She can navigate the house perfectly, and has become much more playful now that they aren't in the way. It was really the best decision we could have made. We were afraid for how she would heal, and it was a long road, but I think it's safe to say that she is 100% recovered.

As for right now, Matilda is involved with two organizations to help promote pet adoption. First up, this weekend, it's National Adoption Weekend at PetSmart! PetSmart is hoping to drive tons of adoptions this weekend, and workers from adoption charities will be there through to Sunday to help match pets with their forever people. It you have room in your home and your heart, head down and see if there's an animal waiting for you!

Next up is Remember Me Thursday on September 22. This event is put on by a wonderful non-profit organization in California called the Helen Woodward Animal Center. They perform so much incredible work to help both animals and people.

Remember Me Thursday is held on the fourth Thursday of September every year by animal lovers and organizations across the globe. We light a candle in remembrance of the millions of orphan pets who lost their lives without the benefit of a loving home and to shine a light on the millions of orphan pets still waiting for their forever home.

We are so proud that Matilda is taking part this year as an Animal Luminary. We hope to help spread the word about pet adoption and save all of the beautiful, perfectly adoptable pets that are in danger of being killed while they wait in shelters.

Watch for Matilda’s social media posts leading up to September 22 to learn more about this amazing cause!

And last but certainly not least, and on the topic of pet adoption, we are so excited to share that a few weeks ago we adopted a baby sister for Matilda! Her name is Luna, and she is a 15-month-old border collie. What an intense infusion of energy in our house! We love her deeply and can't wait to share more photos of Luna and Matilda together on her social media accounts.

That's all for now. Keep adopting!
