Maddie is our "first born." I received her as a present from my dad in September of 2002. She is so very tiny and for the first two years, I swear, she didn't even know she had legs! She weighs 4 pounds (5 if she eats a lot). She is bossy and intolerant. She is not child friendly and has issues with Maisy cramping her style as well. When she wants something she will whine at you and stamp her feet until she gets her way. She is also our resident escape artist and seems to be able to defeat any baby gate that stands in her way. She is definately a true lap dog!
