Maddie, a Redbone Coonhound, was adopted from the Larimer County Humane Society in 2006 at about 7 or 8 years old, after being removed from a neglectful home. You wouldn’t know it, however, as she greeted everyone as if they were a beloved old friend. Children were special favorites, as well as car rides anywhere (including to the vet!) and treats of all kinds. As often happens, her body could no longer support her willing spirit, and when her time came she enjoyed a home-cooked steak, the company of her family and her favorite chewy bones before passing peacefully at home.
