Hi there, beautiful Maddie! What a gorgeous girl you are! You`re on the opposite side of New York State from me, so in a way we are neighbors. Your pictures definitely put a smile on my face; I especially love the one where you`re having a taste of birthday cake! The pic of you all dressed up is great, as well. You definitely sound like a fun, loving pup! It sounds like your human loves you a lot, but who wouldn`t love such a smart and playful doggie like you!! I hope you get many, many belly rubs today, Maddie, and that you enjoy your special day as Dog of the Day! Congratulations!
