Are You Furreal? Maddog Mom Memes, Puppy Parenting Ponderings, & Tall Tail Tales

Updated on October 24, 2017

The Three Amigos Run The Roosts

This is just a random hub featuring some curiosity and chaos inspired creativity; something which is acquired and inspired by sharing my life with these 3 cute furpals and the 5 mini humans, 4 hens, another mum and multiple grandma's they herd.

The Three Amigos are:

a giant horse-dog named Maddie, AKA Maddikins the Wolfhound;

a Jack Russell named Jack Jack AKA Batman;

and a Jill Russell named Sally.

Jack Jack and Maddikins are all grown up now and together constitute a dynamic duo who share my queen size bed, although Jack Jack and I are frequently ejected in the middle of the night when Maddie has a good stretch.They are Laird and Lady of their pet humans: 2 mini mes, me, and grandma... Maddie and Jack Jack also keep the frogs, doves and magpies inline, ensuring boundaries are secure and borders patrolled.

Sally is now the queen of her own castle, and she wears her crown with aplomb and pizazz while she runs her own roost at a family friend's of ours home (she is the boss of 1 adult, 3 mini humans, a crazy chihuahua and a chicken run full of hens....)

We all need somebody to look up to...

Aspire to Inspire

Whether to show us the way, teach us the wrestling moves, lead the dance or just inspire us; role models, teachers, friends and sparring partners are important and parents should lead by example and always choose other minders and teachers wisely....

Trust, loyalty and solidarity

The importance of friends and family is a meaningless concept without including things like trust, loyalty and solidarity in times of crisis and stress....

Curiosity and Chaos

When it comes to parenting, mentoring, minding or baby sitting, be prepared for curiosity and chaos... and NOISE; did I mention noise?

Ironic Cliches and Shared Secrets

Contrary to popular belief, ironic cliches are not redundant; they will live on forever in the poignant moments of life and shared moments of secrecy...
