I realized today that it’s been about 3 years to the day since we brought home our Maddy from the pound as a 3-month old pup. She is one awesome dog and has handled a big move and a new baby so well. She and Abi have become best friends and Maddy is a good protector too. Maddy’s latest trick is letting herself out of the yard – not by jumping the fence, which she easily could, but by opening the latch on the gate and defeating the bungee-cord backup measure as well. Then, does she run away? Oh no, just goes and says hi to the neighbors and then comes back. What a dog. Everyone asks what kind of dog she is. Maddy is a purebred Maddy. There you have it.
I realized that if I had been blogging pre-baby, she would be getting lots of posts and pictures. So here is some much-needed love for our favorite dog, Maddy.
