Well the proverbial cat or should I say, "puppy" is out of the bag. Mom told Dad they're getting a new family member. And they are definitely coming to get the puppy first -- although a few days after April 23rd. However, Mom told me I could NOT pick up the puppy for her. It was supposed to bond with her not me! : ) Here's the latest photo from the local breeder. Isn't he cute??!! And yes, you guessed it. I also would love another maltese. But for right now, we'll stick with Sneaker as the family dog.
