While stopping to grab a cup of coffee at the Panera Bread on Edgewood Road Saturday, Sept. 6th, Maddie and her brother Brutus waited in the car. The window was rolled down about 5 inches, and Maddie decided to look for her mom. When I came out, she was gone. We searched the area for 10 hours until it was dark, and have posted reward posters in the area. I have raised Maddie since the day she was born, and Brutus has been her companion since then as well. They have never been separated, and he misses her as much as I do. She is my only "child", and I am asking for help to bring her home. If you know where she is, please call us at 563.299.1616. Thank you!!

Thank you SO MUCH to the Hopkins family for finding Maddie! She is doing fine, sleeping and eating a lot, and nearly naked(!), but alive and well! We will post some after pictures when she is feeling better, thank you Cedar Rapids!!
