I thought I would post this photograph that Fran took, showing what a serious little dog she can be. This expression is just one that she can produce, depending on her mood and the situation she's in.
At the moment Maddie is housebound, following a knee operation several weeks ago. Sadly she is confined to a cage in the living room for much of the time, to allow for full recovery. But this little dog is so hyper when allowed out that at times we've needed a lead to keep her from running all over the floor and up and down the walls !
