It's clear I was obsessed with my pup. I could write an endless book about how much I loved this dog. I'll try to keep this short...

Maddie was my best friend for 12 years. She was the fluffiest ball of joy, always running around when my mom or I would come home. She was very picky with liking men (she adored Josh). She sneezed more than any dog I've ever met and it was the cutest sound ever, and she would put her paws up to her nose- SO CUTE!

She grunted a lot every time we moved her. The positions she would lay in were very questionable, like how is that comfortable? For a small dog she HATED cats even though she acted more like a cat than a dog. For example, she HATED the water. She always sat on my dad's chair, behind his back when he was working in his office. And for some reason my dad thought it was funny to call her "Maggie," instead of "Maddie."

At an early age we taught her to ring wind chimes to be let outside. She ate her food when we all would sit down for dinner (like she was joining us).

Sunday mornings my dad would make her wake me and my siblings for church. She would jump on our beds and lick our faces. She loved going up north to our property... even though she tried running away the first few times we brought her up there (and I would have a panic attack over it).

She was loved by many. I like to think we gave her the best life. I'll never forget the day we first saw her. My mom told us we weren't buying a dog at all but she fell in love with Maddie.

I'm heartbroken we had to say goodbye to her today. I'll miss her forever, but at least she isn't suffering anymore (she had cancer).

I love you, Maddie. RIP sweet angel. <3
