She was a wee bit nervous (she always is at new things) and she wanted me to sit right next to her. The dog's owner was sitting there with her dog, Tucker, so I sat a little ways away listening. Maddy had so much fun and I daresay Tucker enjoyed it too, though the story seemed to make him a little sleepy. He was a perfect little guy and his owner said that she found him at the shelter 8 years ago. He didn't exactly want to get his picture taken, but isn't he cute!
