The Ride Home!
Mathilda on her ride to her new home.
Barley was far from convinced that we needed a new dog.
We introduced Mattie to our weekend pastime that we call "Dog TV" because they can observe all of the activity on our street.
After Barley's knee surgery he was kept sedated for many days. Mattie, despite being a bit of a lunatic, was quite calm around him.
Photo evidence of the abuse that Mattie suffers at our hands.
We've considered finishing school to teach her how to sit more lady-like.
After a couple of months of recovery for Barley I took the both of them for a very short and slow mountain bike ride.
Mattie isn't a huge fan of water. She likes to splash around in the edge but hasn't yet tried swimming. Barley retrieves, and she tries to take it when he gets back to shore.
Best Action Photo Ever
This is at a lake up in the Mammoth Lakes area. It's a good single picture representation of who Mattie is.

Mattie and Barley's brother Betelnut, who occasionally spends the day with us, have a whole house and yard in which to play. But they'd prefer to stir up the dust in my office.

Sometimes she's a bit pampered.
Sometimes she has to make do with a chair that isn't big enough. We're horrible that way.
Barley would never admit it, but he likes her now.
Nap with Betel
They don't always play.
