We are very sad to say that Matlock passed away on January 16th, 2013. We are all heartbroken and will miss him very much. He was happy and healthy until a week ago when he had trouble walking. He spent the night at the vet but his back legs became completely paralysed. We gave him his meds and took all the care we could but he did not make it and died peacefully during the night. We still do not know what really happened to him, we just know that we are very sad right now…...he was only 3-4 years old.
We adopted Matlock from Animatch in July 2010, he was an abandonned stray. When we got him he was skinny and shaved and pretty nervous, but he quickly became a very loved member of our family. His fur grew in and he got stronger day by day.... He loved to go for walks and play with his little toys. We had lots of fun with him; our 2 boys adored him, as did we!
We still cannot believe that he is gone..... thank you for giving us the opportunity to know and love him
