Madison, May 1999 - May 2013
This site celebrates the life and honors the memory of Madison, our beloved Yellow Lab, who was with us for nearly 14 active, wonderful years.
She loved to go on walks and was a very willing participant in longer weekend expeditions; she hiked every trail on this site,
and more. Maddie had many adventures, and you can read about some of them here.
