I wanted to write a sad update on our beloved Matilda. Matilda, who came to us as Janet Jackson 4 years and 2 months ago, passed away yesterday peacefully in her sleep, July 31. Our hearts are heavy right now, not knowing how to comprehend the loss of our first “baby.” Matilda will be missed by our family—she was an amazing big sister to our children. She was patient and loving with them. She was known around the neighborhood as a big gentle giant, crazy goofy hound. While our time with her was relatively short, we can remember all the amazing times we had with her. While she was a big dog, she was afraid of the smallest things. She loved to try and steal food from the table, enjoyed her evening long walks with the family, and just lazing about. She was the perfect match for our crazy little family—especially with the kids. Matilda liked to conspire with Lillian frequently—the dynamic duo, both Alpha Females!! Matilda will always be in our hearts and we cannot thank you enough for giving us the opportunity to be Matilda’s Forever Home. I know that she loved us and the last 4 years of her life were the best and that she passed knowing how much we loved and cared for our girl.

Thank you for letting us be a part of her life and letting her be a part of our family. We love you Tilly-B! xxoo

Dani, Steve, Lillian, and James Crane
