Arrival Story:
We decided to add a new dog to our family, one that would be excellent with our children, get along with our other dog, Meeka, and have potential for dog sports and therapy work. Our prayers were answered when we found Maddy at the local shelter on 11/2/06, through a listing on Petfinder. She is the absolute PERFECT dog for angel with fur and four legs!

4-21-08: Maddy is officially a Therapy Dog! She had her very first visit today at St. Peter Hospital in Olympia with their AAA/T program. She was a natural from the very beginning. She hypnotizes people with her constantly wagging tail and mesmerizes them with her beautiful looks and personality. We're looking forward to Maddy having a long career helping people heal through the human-animal bond!

Forums Motto:
Wag more. Bark less.

I've Been On Dogster Since:

Maddy's first hospital visit

Maddy had her first hospital visit today. It went swimmingly...smooth as butta! She is a pro, a total natural. She had a waiting room full of people laughing and smiling. Already it's obvious she enjoys hugs and making babies giggle. She's going to bring lots of joy to our little corner of the world!

Maddy and I passed our Delta Society Pet Partners test today! Woohoo!

Hard work, lots of support from friends & family, and good timing all came together. Maddy was the "star of the day" according to evaluators.

We'll be registering shortly and beginning visits to the hospital soon! Maddy will get to share some warm, fuzzy cuddles with patients in need.
