It’s been a crazy busy week, and I’ve been a bit remiss in posting lately, but as Maddie reminded me this morning, once again it’s time to look back and publicly commemorate Maddie’s adoption and the seven years (where does the time go?) she’s been hanging out with us (last night, we privately marked the occasion with pie… After all, Maddie loves pie).

Sure, the last year has had its challenges. Not to mention more trips to the vet than I’d usually prefer. But we’re healthy, and happy, and (thanks in part to the most recent series of vet visits) always up for a walk.

This year is all about lucky prime numbers. So I propose a toast: To seven years of Maddie, our thirteen-year-old, rather opinionated dog. May there be many, many more.
