Madison's First Snow
We have a 9 month old Golden Retriever named Madison. She is the third Golden we have had in our lives and she is just a joy. Last February, we lost our beautiful Amber suddenly at 12 1/2 years old and about 2 weeks later we had our only big snow fall of the winter. Amber loved the snow so much and we loved romping around with her in it so when we had that storm after she died, I didn't have the heart to go out and enjoy it. I remember staying inside all day feeling very sad and alone.
We woke up to almost TWO FEET of snow this morning and because of our precious "Maddie Magoo" I feel like I can love the snow again. She wasn't sure what to make of it at first but it didn't take long before she was pouncing up and down in it, helping Daddy shovel and playing with the boys next door in their front yard.
Madison, thank you for coming into our lives and for helping me love snow again...
