Quick Bio:

December 13th 2004

Sleeping, eating, running, chewing chewies, playing, puppy biting, pestering his big sis and brother!

When mommy says no!

Favorite Toy:
Mom's bed, any type of chewy, human hands (yum!), my sis Taylor, ... anything I'm not supposed to have!

Favorite Food:
Turducken and Smothered Comfort!

Favorite Walk:
The path behind the house where I finds lots of good smells, squirrels, and our resident pheasant--who we call The Donald.

Best Tricks:
Update: Maddux! has a new trick. He'll sit by my feet and when I tap my chest and say "jump!," he'll jump straight up into my arms. What a boy!I have a four-part series--first I sit, then I shake, then I give five, then I jump up and give ten!

Arrival Story:
I found baby Maddux! on and flew into a Minnesota blizzard to pick him up in Waterloo, Iowa. Drove 150+ miles of snow-packed and ice-covered roads to get to him. An hour later, we were back on the plane to fly together to our home in Sammamish, WA. The original owner purchased him at a mall pet store and abandoned him the next day at the animal shelter. Pet stores that sell dogs and cats should be banned! Please consider rescues when looking to adopt a pet and never purchase from pet stores! Or find a professional breeder who has history in the breed and will support your raising of your pup.

Little Maddux! has two speeds: off and on. He wakes us up every single day like clockwork at 6 a.m. After doing his business, he jumps directly into naughty mode ... getting after all the things he not supposed to get. After about 1.5 hours, he tires and thankfully gets back into nap mode. This is pretty much the cycle of the day. When not feisty, he loves love, snuggles, kisses, and sniffing faces!

Forums Motto:
Maddux! Rules!

Yay for me!

Mommy went walking down da hallway and left me here in the family room. Guess what I spotted! Her replacement cell phone! When's that mommy gonna learn? Two minutes later, I tink she heard me chewing and came running out, looking for the cell phone on the coffee table. But she didn't see it. Ya know why? Cause it was in my mouf!

I done killed that thing even better than I killed that last one! She can't even get the back to stay on. Ha ha! I promised I'd be back wit news about killing this new one. And here I am.

I'll post pics of the destruction soon!

Maddux! rules!

OK. So, mommy was sick yesterday. So I couldn't do much but snuggle with her and try to make her feel better. She's all good today, so I think I did my job. Yay for me!

I been doin' good minor stuff like runnin' around with washcloths, socks, and paper towels. But I'm plotting my next big thing. Oh, it's gonna be a good one.

Even mommy don't know what I'm gonna do.

I got new pics on my profile. Be sure to check me out!



What's better? Phone or couch? Not sure.

Man oh man. I am gettin' good! I told y'all about that cell phone I ate (OK, I know I didn't do a diary about this, but I will add some writings about it to update you), but now I done even better.

Get this. Yesterday at around 4:30, mom logged onto the basenjicam from work to check in on me and my sis. Guess what she saw ... me goin' after the couch! I was just gettin' started when she checked in but by de time she got home, I ripped a good 12-inch tear in it and got some stuffins out of there.

Mom says the basenjicam is good when I'm bein' good (which I mostly am), but torture when I'm bein' bad (this is the first time). Cause she can see me destroying stuff but can't do a darn thing about it. Ha ha!

Oooh. I see that tear now. Gotta get back to work.
