Usually when I have a Tuesday MOT I share an email from Graeme, my Australian friend who lives with his beautiful wife, Noi in Thailand along with a rag-tag pack of dogs that adopted them. Today I am sharing an email I sent him instead, about Maddie. Maddie the Coonhound who stands on things.
Good Morning and Welcome to MOT-Morning Open Thread
Before starting out, Humphrey decided he needed a travel buddy and a dog would be a perfect choice so he adopted Maddie, a coonhound he found on Petfinder. Maddie became his front-seat companion and occasional icebreaker. “I had to convince people that I was trustworthy,” Humphrey says, and Maddie was a perfect wingman.
In December 2011 he posted a photo of Maddie standing on four soup cans and it attracted viewers far outside his circle of friends and family. As he began posting more photos, his friend bought him the domain name maddieonthings(dot)com and from there his fan base grew. Somewhere along the way the idea of a book, Maddie On Things, occurred to him and he suddenly had a new project.
