Welcome to the World Henry!


Welcome to the world Henry!

Gracie and Watson welcomed a healthy little male to the world on Monday, August 15th around 10:23 a.m. He is the only puppy in the litter and is sold to the Summers Family. They have named him Henry and are so excited to add him to their family! He is a darling!

We are expecting a litter from Kitty as well, probably in a week or so. So to all who are on the waiting list, sit tight, more puppies are coming soon! I am hoping Gracie's small litter doesn't push anyone back to getting a puppy next year instead, but it may very well be. We have many people wanting females, including ourselves. But we will keep you all posted.


Stay tuned to Facebook for updates on Kitty's litter and to watch little Henry grow!

Just Some Updates

Greetings Maltese lovers! I thought it was about time I get into my blog and give an update! I forget that not all people probably follow us on Facebook, and that's where I do most of my updating.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a lovely Independence Day! We took the weekend to just relax and play with our dogs. Now that our kids are grown, we don't get into the run around of festivities much anymore, and our dogs aren't fond of fireworks.

HOPE ...

First of all, let me tell you all that little Hope is doing great! Other than she is fixing to get a baby tooth pulled, all is good in her world. I talk to her mommy often. I am happy in the thoughts that she is being so pampered and loved, but I must say that it has been agonizing trying to get to a place of contentment without her here. I miss her horribly. I cried like a traumatized baby the night she left and still feel a black hole in my heart. But, I know it was in her best interest to find a new home and so in that I keep it together. It is amazing how this breed can latch onto our soul. Maltese are nothing short of precious!!!!

PUPPY NEWS ...
In other news, we are hoping to expect puppies from Gracie X Watson and also Kitty & Pippy, both in August. If all "took", we should be swimming in cuteness in no time! As Kitty will be retiring soon, and in order for us to continue breeding, we will be keeping any breeding quality females, one or two that Kitty might have.  And also maybe one from Gracie, we'll see. So we are not taking any more deposits on puppies for these two litters. We will however take deposits if people don't mind waiting for the next puppy season.

AWESOME DISHES ... Another tidbit I wanted to mention is that I had blogged about that little portable pet bowl set a while back and I wanted to let you all know that I did get it and love it! I have been using it whenever someone goes to work with me or just traveling. It is so cute and functional. Pippy came with me to the office this last week, you can see the bowl set in the background.

And what the heck! This thing is on sale now cheaper than when I got mine!! It's regularly $69.99, I think I paid $25.something, and now it's $20.97! So I have attached my link if you want to check it out. I love mine! If you want to be as cool as me and Pippy, you should probably order one (wink-wink).

Have a great weekend!!

A Home For Hope...


Little Hope has gone to live with her new Mama, Stacy! 

I can't even begin to tell you how hard it was to watch little Hope leave. I had anxiety and was sick to my stomach watching her go, but I knew in my heart that a more calm and 1-on-1 home was in her best interest for the long run. I think many people are a little shocked that we adopted her out, please know this was not easily decided... you see, Hope's condition requires her to stay as calm as possible and avoid being startled. She has spasms in her neck and when she gets over stimulated her condition worsens. Hope is sensitive to noise and quite fragile. In the raising of a bunch of Maltese, our home is quite rambunctious and noisy. Hope often got startled by all the barking and would run off in a panic. And separating her from the others was agonizing to her. So we tried to leave them all together, but then she often would get trompled by the bigger dogs who wanted to play. I spent as much time with Hope as I could, and as much as I would have loved to keep Hope here coddled in my arms, my other Maltese demand a lot of attention and work. And with puppy season coming soon again and with us keeping back more females soon, we decided that Hope would benefit from a new home. Things were just too stimulating here.

It was a blessing that I got a chance to raise and work with Hope.  She brought me so much happiness, as all Maltese do. It was a miracle to watch her go from totally disabled to almost normal in just a few months. She will always hold a place in my heart. I'm sure it's going to take us a while to get over the separation from her. Raising puppies is so rewarding in seeing the wonderful homes and happy faces on adoption day, but can also be tough love when you get too attached. And it never fails, I get attached to every one of them! Especially ones like Hope. It was a hard thing letting Hope go, but know that we found a wonderful home for her. Her new mom, Stacy, is retired and plans to spend all her time with Hope. And Hope is not alone, but has a new elderly Maltese sister to keep her company. She is very laid back, and calm. Hope will have company and not get too over worked. We felt this home was a good match for Hope. And the atmosphere may even help her condition improve. If it isn't working out with Hope, she is to be returned to us, but we believe these two will become best friends.

Stacy says she felt very blessed to be picked as Hope's new mom....


We'll keep you all informed of how Hope is doing in her new home!

Hope Update


Hello everyone! ...
I wanted to let you all know that we have decided that we will allow Hope to be adopted. Anyone interested is welcome to submit an adoption form on our website. This decision has not come lightly and is a very difficult one. But, with the raising of so many Maltese and the soon coming puppy season, we have decided that it may be in her best interest to have someone's undivided attention. She is so deserving of a home that will make her their world and spend all their time with her. If nobody comes forward wanting her, she will stay here loved and pampered as usual, but we want to give her a chance to a dedicated owner/family.

Hope is a darling. I just can't express how loving she is. She loves to cuddle and give kisses. If and when she goes, I will miss her dearly. She is very tiny, only being just over 2 pounds. I don't expect her to get very big if she gets any bigger at all.

As you all know, she was born with cerebellitis, which we have gotten under control with medicine.

She will require her medicine daily, possibly for life. A new owner would be required to keep her on her medicine, which cost around $13 to refill (at our veterinarian anyway.) Other than that, Hope leads a pretty normal life. She still has a little wobble to her step, but she gets around just fine. She is a happy little baby. Please read more about Hope on our website HERE and submit an adoption form if you would like to be considered. There are some stipulations to adopting Hope, which you will read on our website.
