Maddie is such a great dog.. we could not have asked for a better four legged friend! Matthew adores her too. He is probably her biggest fan - she scores most of her treats because of him and she knows exactly where to hang out during meal times. If he doesn't accidentally drop something, he'll do it on purpose. Sometimes I wonder if Matthew thinks he is a dog too. I've even caught him dipping his mouth into the water bowl for a quick drink!! YUCK!! They do get along so well ... there is just something special about a boy and his dog.
