Have a Maddie Paddy Day

Happy St Paddy’s Day from Maddie

Most of you know that I don’t normally post on Fridays. Today is different. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to cue up a few shots of Miss Maddie and one of her favorite toys.

She wasn’t cooperating, so some of the shots are blurry. The captions tell the story. If you want to know, click on any photo for a slide show.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

About Dan Antion

Husband, father, woodworker, cyclist, photographer, geek - oh wait, I’m writing this like I only have 140 characters. I am all those things, and more, and all of these passions present me with opportunities to observe, and think about things that I can’t write about in other places. I have started this blog to catch the stuff that falls out, overflows and just plain doesn’t fit the other containers in my life.

    Happy St. Pat’s to you too, Dan, and Maddie of course. Feed her some corned beef. I am sure she would like that. :)

  4. :) How fun! Does she ever take the squeaker out of her toys? Diva Dog does.

    Happy St. Paddy’s Day to you, Maddie, and the family!

      Maddie has destroyed so many toys, Deborah. So many squeakers have been removed along with all the white fluff. We won’t let her rip this toy, because it’s a legacy toy from a previous setter. She loves it and she brings it too me in the morning very often to entice me to come sit with her on the couch. She’s so cute with it, I can’t resist, but I’ve never gotten a good picture. Happy st Pat’s!

      • :) That’s adorable about the Shamrock.

        Diva Dog has a pig toy she hasn’t destroyed. We have no idea what makes that one so special to her, but it is and she’s had it for years now.

          Our first setter (Mitzi) had a little vinyl squeaky duck. She used to take it out and hold it, and “clean its bottom” like a puppy. We called it Baby Duck. She would get mad at you if you threw it. She’d go pick it up and lick it. After she died, my wife put it away so the next setter wouldn’t tear it up.

  8. The title of your post alone was worth you breaking your “no post on Fridays” rule. Green is definitely Maddie’s color!

  9. Happy St Paddy’s day, to you both. Don’t listen to Greg from Almost Iowa. Dietary repercussions, you know.

      My mother is 1/2 Scotch-Irish. I’ve never understood what that means. I’ve heard that it’s Scottish folks who migrated to Ireland and I’ve heard that it’s the other way round. Maddie, though, she’s an Irish girl to be sure.

    Happy St Patrick’s day! When pets (or children) don’t want to, they don’t want to (crooked smile). Your attempt is caught by us though!

  20. Dan, you’re shameless. A Maddie post is like posting cute photos of your children–you’ll always get tons of likes! :-) Happy eating of the green to Maddie and to all of you.

  21. Red hair and shamrocks – it has to be St. Patty’s Day in CT. :-) She truly is a beautiful girl who seems to find joy in her day. Good role model for the rest of us. My toys just don’t squeak. :-)

    She’s a red haired beauty of a dog, Dan! Hope you enjoyed a fantastic St Paddy’s Day with Maddie, kitty (MuMu) and the Editor. My memory is fading on kitty’s name, not yet drinking on this fine Saturday either! :)
