My new friend has a name!

Blog world I would like you to meet little Madeline – Maddy for short.


Madeline this is the blog world. :)

Madeline is a lady through and through. She is very prim and proper and deserved a girly name that fit her personality. This little girl is all about the pink and sparkles. ;)

The first night with the puppy went very well. She was a little unsure of what to make of her new place, but is starting to become more comfortable in her new surroundings. I can already tell she’s an explorer.

Since her crate is currently at my parent’s house, Caitlin graciously offered (begged?) to watch little Maddy while I worked today. I dropped her off on my way in and was happy to see her instant bond with James and Maggie.

Making the pit stop left me no time to eat breakfast at home, so I packed up some cereal to eat at my desk when I made it to work.


I made a mix of 1/2 cup Cinnamon Puffins, 1/2 cup Missy’s Mix 1, !/4 cup Good Run Granola, Strawberries, Blueberries and Plain Oikos Yogurt.


I think this was the first time since I started this job a year a go that I have ate breakfast at my desk. I guess there’s a first time for everything.

I want to thank everyone again for their support in my time of need. I am still slowly healing, but it helps knowing all of you are out there if I ever need a shoulder to lean on.

When Rover passed away back in November of 2002 my Mom was in the Dominican Republic on one of her Mission Trips. Before she returned from the trip my Dad had already brought Scooby in to our lives. Scooby brought life back into our grieving household and 7 years later he is still a loving member of our family.

When Abbie passed I knew there was no way I could replace her, but my apartment felt so empty and my heart felt as if it still had so much more love to give. The only thing that made me happy was researching new puppies. I knew the time was right to adopt another companion.

Madeline spoke to me when I first saw her and I knew Abbie would have loved her instantly just as I did. She was always begging for a little sister and now she has one.  Somewhere Abbie is smiling down at us. :)
