At this point, it isn't cute -- it is very annoying.
She licks all the time.
Seriously. Can you believe how long the thing is?
So, she has a long tongue. But as of last night, we have come to realize that Maddie also has some kind of good luck aura about her.......
About 1:00 am this morning Kirk had a bit of a coughing fit -- (he has a cold). So he got up to cough somewhere other than our bed. As he walked by the little kennel that Maddie sleeps in, he became aware of a nasty, yet familiar odor. Maddie had gotten "sick" in her kennel. I don't mean "puke" sick --- yeah, that. The other end.
So Kirk got her out of the kennel, and let her outside while he cleaned up the kennel. When he went back to let Maddie in, she wasn't there. He called, bribed, threatened. No Maddie in sight. Frustrated, Kirk returned to the bedroom and dressed for a middle of the night stroll. Walking down the driveway toward Maddie's favorite spot --- the street sign on the corner where all smelly things reside ---Kirk sees something. Is it Maddie? Not sure. Walking closer he realizes what he is seeing is a FOX --- and Maddie. The fox is sniffing at our little dog, who isn't in the slightest bit phased, interested or concerned. As Kirk approaches closer the fox hesitates, then runs. Maddie has just had a near death experience.
We have been hearing the foxes barking at night. We even commented the other day that we probably shouldn't let Maddie out alone at night. With the owls, hawks, fox, etc. it could be a dangerous place for a 7 pound yorkie!
