Maddie is so fun. I can't tell if she actually enjoys standing on things, or if she's just extremely tolerant of the man she loves. Hmmmmm...I wonder if my Max would stand on the houseboat flagpole?

This is like an updated, photographic version of Steinbeck's Travels with Charlie with slightly more focus on the canine companion, Maddie. Simple, playful, and artistic, it's fun to flip through the pictures and admire the Maddies's acrobatic talents with myriad bits of America in the background. I especially liked spotting local cities like Shawnee and Lee's Summit in the mix.
