Right before I hit the road I rescued Maddie from a shelter in Atlanta. For the next 365 days, 24/7, she was right next to me in my pickup. We literally spent everyday together meeting folks, loving folks, and living the dream. The roots of the Maddie series, of discovering her amazing balance and patience, all started right here on @Instagram. Nearly everyday I would post an image of our adventures on the road. Instagram kept me inspired and connected. From all of this came a wonderful book published on @ChronicleBooksand some of the strongest friendships I’ve ever had. Now we’re about to hit the road and visit all 50 states on a book tour and new documentary #WhyWeRescue. We are so pumped that we get to meet all of ya’ll!
