Last night after I got through at the gym, Dr. Dave asked me if I'd meet his dog, Maddie, who was waiting in the truck for him. Technically, she's his son's dog. His son works in the film industry and he got Maddie, a Goldendoodle, from a trainer - she's definitely not a puppymill/byb product. She could be Sophie's pale blond sister. Calm, sweet natured, an absolute love. She put her head out of the truck window and looked long into my eyes, then reached her nose toward me and touched my nose with hers and stayed there for a few seconds, then very softly gave me a gracious lick on the face Oh, I can see now why people fall in love with Doodles . . . .
