My son is a hero; he rescued a Lab-Rottweiler (Labrottie or Rotten Lab) from a local humane society. He totally fell in love with her a little more every time he visited the humane society to play with her. I knew she was coming home with him when he texted me her picture with the caption, “I’m in love…” Who ever had her before us, must have loved her too. She’s fully trained and eager to please and is a sweet, gentle girl. Within a few minutes of her arrival, she made herself to home and adopted all of us too. We are all in love with her.
We now have a new member to our family. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you may have all ready met my son’s new girl, Maddie. She is a sweet large hunk of snuggles and cuddles. A very sweet doggie. She has stolen all of our hearts and Wilson likes her too. Although he’s not fond of the fact that she de-stuffs all of his favorite toys. Wilson does enjoy the extra companion in the house and when we’re not looking he tries to play with her even though he’s blind. It’s sweet how he follows her outside and ‘listens’ for her to find the door when it’s time to come back in. My hubby and I have taken them for a few walks and Wilson seems to walk along at a quicker pace listening for Maddie as a reference to where we are going.

One thing we discovered the day after Christmas is Maddie loves to run. I mean LOVES TO RUN… REALLY LOVES TO RUN. She runs like a greyhound and is a bit of a tease and trickster. She slipped out of her collar while outside, gave my hubby a goofy smile and then off to the races she went! Of coarse it’s a lazy morning, I’m still in my jammies drinking coffee and I hear hubby in a panic, ‘She’s loose’ he yells. We both throw on coats and bolt out the front door in a panic. (All I can think is ‘what am I going to tell Thomas if Maddie is lost. And we lost her while he was at work!) When I get outside, I find Maddie is frolicking through the neighborhood with a big ol’ goofy grin. After what felt like hours of slopping through my neighbor’s yards in newly fallen, wet snow with my dear hubby, Maddie decides she’s done running and comes home with us. During all of this, hubby had abandoned Wilson outside with the back door open. ‘Thank you Wilson for being a good boy and letting yourself in’. There is nothing like starting your day, flip-flopping thru several inches of wet snow in your hubby’s oversized slippers with a cold. All of us slept the rest of the day… even Wilson.
