Did you know that our Maddie has a facebook? Seriously, she does. Friend request her if you like so you can keep up with what Maddie is doing. She is there under the name Maddie Shrodes. Here's a pic of her recently as she was on the computer. By the way, we didn't stage this photo. Seriously. She was laying on the bed looking at the computer and Savanna noticed and thought it was cute and grabbed the camera and took her photo. I was laying right next to her working on my laptop while she was looking at Larry's but I'm so used to her doing stuff like this I didn't even notice. I know, I know...she's an amazing dog!
