We adopted Maddie, I was going off to college and my little sister and I had been begging for a dog for years. So 2 weeks before I left for school we brought home Maddie. A friend of ours, knew we were looking for a dog and told us we had to go look at this dog her coworker was fostering. We called the woman right away, and went and saw the dog. My mom, little sister and I fell in love, and filled out the adoption paperwork as soon as we got home. A week later, after my dad had met Maddie we brought her home. By the time I left for school two weeks later, she was the center of our world. She is now spoiled rotten and her favorite nickname (she has many) is Maddie-Moo. She is the biggest baby you will ever meet and her favorite activity is none at all. She loves just to lay in bed with my parents or without them, and soon adopted their bed as her own. I now have a bumper sticker on my car that says I adopted my best friend, and I can say with 100% certainty that it is true. I don't know what we would do without her.

P.S. Did I mention her second favorite activity is to beg for food. See pic!
