This is Maddie. She is one of the true loves of my life.
That face! I will never get enough of it.
She is the quirkiest dog I have ever known, but that is what makes her so fantastic.
Yes Maddie - I'm looking at you, you little Border Collie and who-knows-what mix.
She usually lives at my Dad and Step-Mom's house but she is still our dog. The day I took these pictures, my sister, Caitlin, (who is also my roommate) had taken her on a big hike and she was tired while sprawled out on Caitlin's bed. When I got home from work to find her there sheer joy overtook me in about .348 seconds.
Here I am giving her some lovin'. See how she is leaning her head against my hand? I LOVE when she does that.
Thank goodness we have dogs in this crazy world. Do any of you have dogs that you would give your left leg for?
