A Love Letter to Mata
Along with an apology
“Her name is Mathilda; I named her after that girl in Luc Besson’s movie,” said the young man who Mata owned during the first couple of months of her life.
“I loved that movie and the two leads, both Jean Reno and ‘that girl’. But don’t you think ‘Mathilda’ is a bit long and complex for a dog name? Will she even respond to it? Has she?” I asked him.
