Mardee Ward (Fanning) was a force of nature, from the first time we met her. She and Dad got along famously, although they did butt heads once in a while. That’s what happens when you get two incredibly strong personalities going about politics and dogs (sometimes in the same conversation!).
Everything changed when we got Maxxine. The daughter of (the original!) Midknight Maxx and Ivory, Maxxine wasn’t the prettiest bitch herself, but she was a phenomenal brood bitch. She was also my original heart dog, mother and nursemaid all in one. Nearly all Moonstar dogs go back to–and through–Maxxine.
