Meghan Is Now “Mater”!
Wednesday, Jul 11,2012

Just wanted to share with you how the puppy is doing. She had a lot of fun playing with the kids last night. Bedtime…let’s just say we quickly learned how loud she can get and how many different sounds she can make! πŸ™‚ After awhile, she slept fine in her new crate. My kids seem to have more energy than her…ha ha! As I type, I am watching Ryan playing ball with her…he LOVES, LOVES, LOVES her. My daughter is more motherly with her, as opposed to being playful. She likes to follow my husband around…which is cute. The kids don’t want to leave her during the day to go to school or their extra curricular activities…luckily, they have classes at different times, so they take turns playing with her.

As for her name…the two kids kept arguing over her name…so we made them explain why they chose the names they picked. And the final verdict ended up being: “Mater”, because “Mater is Lightning McQueen’s best friend…Mater is goofy, loving, cheerful, loyal and can drive backwards…he’s never mean to anybody…just like our doggy.” Coming from a 4 year old, that was one good rationale…so the family decided to go with it! πŸ™‚
