In the days since losing her dog, Maddison's efforts have included making signs and waving placards, and at least one ill-fated effort to climb a tree. According to her mother, Jenny Armer, the loss of her dog has taken a terrible toll.
"As people are aware, Darla is Maddison's dog, and she is really suffering without her," Jenni wrote in a Facebook post. "She's become withdrawn and very quiet, which is my biggest concern. She also isn't eating or sleeping much at all."
