This is a sweet, fun book. Maddie has some great balancing skills and you can tell that there is love and trust between her and her human. It's also great that the author found her at a shelter. She was given up by someone who had no idea what a great dog she is, but luckily found by someone who values her for who she is. A great story!

The book is blank except for one page. It was not cheap for its 19 pages and only one can be red

I absolutely adore Maddie, and have followed them on Instagram (thiswildidea) for some time now. When I found out they had a book, I immediately purchased it. Besides taking amazing photos, Theron also works with people and animals who have found each other through adoption. I love his and Maddie's story and just love his style of photography. A great keepsake book to look at or give as a gift. I can't wait to Maddie and Theron's next volume! Follow them on Instagram to see daily pictures of Maddie in crazy poses!
