    Q What makes your pet special?
    A We got Maddie through the Brittany Spaniel Rescue Association after I applied to adopt a puppy. They came to the house on a Saturday after approval and said it would be a long time before a puppy would be available. But two days later they called with a puppy in Virginia. We drove to an old town, Warrington, Va., before Thanksgiving last year and spent the day with the foster mom. When you see Maddie’s face, you’ll know why we adopted her. We fell in love with her. The foster mom actually cried when we left with her. Maddie’s foster mom visited Rehoboth Beach about two weekends ago, called to see if she could visit Maddie and took a ton of pictures home with her.
     
    Q What is your favorite memory of your pet?
    A This year’s Halloween Parade at Fur-Baby Boutique. Maddie was dressed as a jungle bird. She behaved very well. She’s a very mild-mannered dog. She gets into her devil moments, but she’s a very social dog as she’s been going to Fur-Baby since she was 3 months old.
     
    Q What is the funniest thing your pet has done?
    A The funniest thing with Maddie is she gets into fits of running. She’s a very funny dog all the time. Sometimes when she rides in the car, she sits like a little human being on her haunches looking out the window.
