Happy Birthday Maddie!

My writing buddy, Maddie, is six years old today! I know, it's April Fool's Day, but it's kind of a fitting day for her birthday-she takes the curse off the day with her complete sweetness and utter devotion to our family.

I work at home, so during my day, whether I am writing or working at my 'day job', she is by my side. She's ever aware of my movements from room-to-room, and loves nothing more than when I finally settle down in front of my laptop for some intensive 'alternative world creation', i.e., writing!

That's when she nestles into the nearby armchair or curls up at my feet. Of course, occasionally she'll stroll over to rest her head in my lap for a little one-on-one affection. Golden Retrievers are like that-they love attention, giving or receiving!

This evening, we'll head over to the Good Times in our town and get her a 'Frosty Paws' (ice cream, peanut butter and three dog bones!) to celebrate. I hope we have at least six more years with this most loving and affectionate member of our family!
