Mataya was an apricot poodle. He was so small, he could fit in your pocket. I would bring him to visit the Elderly people in Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Places. Everytime they saw him, their face would melt with love...Mataya brought up memories, feelings of Love and Kindness towards animals.The book is filled with large, delightful photographs taken from many visits over the years. Mataya wore different costumes, hats, and was the Star in numerous funny skits. Each chapter descibes a different Life Celebration, a "party" with Fun and Laughter! Come with me on the Journey that was Mataya''s life story. He shall be remembered now and then, here and there...especially during every Holiday time!
