Among her favorite discoveries are what has become known as "Madison's stinky thing," and she finds one of them almost every morning. It is the grimiest, most chewed up, ripped and destroyed toy imaginable, something that has been abandoned by its owner and completely offensive to every other dog at the park.
This is fairly surprising for a diva-dog, but indicative of her multi-faceted personality. This princess can really get down and get dirty.
This morning, she found a macerated plastic and fabric frisbee. At least that's what H-Mom thinks it was. This inspired an hour of chase, run, prance and show-off.
After all that dirt, H-Mom takes Madison to the dog lake for a 10 minute dip before getting in the car. Madison loves the water, and she splashes, runs and almost swims.
This morning, there was a group of people already by the lake, unusual for a Saturday morning. They were sitting calmly, with a couple very friendly black labs circling, and a male and female Australian Shephard.
And a litter of 9-week-old Aussie furballs.
H-Mom says its nice to be in love on Valentine's Day, and it's nice to fall in love on Valentine's Day. Well, H-Mom loves Madison, and she fell in love with these little balls of fluff. They were little inquisitive, kissing, bundles of cuteness. This is our friend, a local dog trainer, and the new mom of the little merle girl sitting on her lap.
It was fun to pet rolley puppies in the morning, but H-Mom knows we already have enough "dog per square foot" in our condo.
Happy Valentine's Day! MUAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
