BY PASTOR DONNA M. OLSEN Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, Pequot Lakes I have a great dog, Maddie. And, she’s very smart. Maddie understands many words, and I know that she does because she responds differently to different words. If I ask Maddie if she wants to play with the puppies, she wags her tail and dances around me. If I tell her I’m going to work, she hides because she knows it’s crate time. Maddie is a smart one.
