Once upon a time...


Once upon a time, I was the ONE AND ONLY diving maltese in my place...


There was a "poodle" who I lived with too AND a "border collie" friend who visited us often. However, non of them joined me in diving. I was the one and only. Life in water was PAWsome, to be honest with you.
It was simply just "Me & My ball"


aaah! those were the good ol' days.

Things started to change starting 2008 when the other maltese girl jumped in after me for the very first time. Each summer, her skills improved because this is the season where mama allows us to swim more often.

the result? NOFullFun!!!

The swimming session is no longer just for me. I get held back at times by humans, asking me to give the girl a chance to retrieve on her own...Will someone care for an extra maltese? My role as a big brother is over. I can ship her to u at anytime. Woofz, Snowy!!


Bellow photos were taken last Friday.

I put two different colored bandanas around the necks of the malts. The bandanas are of very light clothe type of material. Blue around Snowys and Pink around Crystals. (On a side note, Crystal lost her topknot)


Here are some Diving Crystal shots.

Crystal: "Snowy, you can only dweam 'bout da good ol' days! I am all in fow a dive aftew squeaky toy"

To answer the "catch or miss?" thread for this photo


The answer to that thread was "miss" ... she missed catching it the second after the above particular photo was taken. She didn't aim on it when she opened her mouth. I think that her navigation system was not set well lol

but I LOVED the look of determination on her face. She indeed, did not swim out, but tried catching it again.

and she caught it after the second try

Crystal: "toy is all mine"


out but she goes squeezing on toy. The squeak sound becomes of a softer sound, but she still likes it.
*water-squeaks-noises-red-toy-makes*


She gets all excited to get ready for another dive


Crystal: "I got dat diving game down. Snowy can no longer hab pool all fow himself. Afterall, who run the world? ...Giwls!!"


ok, we are not sure about the fact that girls run the world, so excuse Crystal's woofs above. She's just been listening to Beyoncé new single a lot lately

few photos of my boy, Snowy, from last Friday (yes, I did allow him to play too, no worries and he had a blast ^_^)


gotta love the water drops that he creates behind his little back paws

The bellow photos were taken on 15 June 2011. a pitty that I did not think about the "bandana around neck" idea until last Friday. I can certainly tell them apart lol but I know that many can't, so here they are in order with their names above each photo Enjoy!

Snowy...


Crystal...

Have a wonderful summer 2011 season:chili:


Hope you enjoyed

p.s. I don't know if I introduced Dante de Rose, my galah, to you, but here he is <3 I love him too. He is so good at dancing and talking too. His best two words are "hello and I love you"

Be careful there, Snowy! I think there are any number of us who would love to take Crystal off your hands!! But I will bet anything that you would not have near the fun without her!

Kat, what an amazing life your Malts have! I think I would like to be one of your Malts! Please??! And what a beautiful bird!

You are most welcomd to be one of my malts lol .... BUT you will need a passing tickets to enter. and for that, I will want Augie and new puppy to come along ... see? I wont have to wait longer for a 3rd pup I will then have a couple of VERY CUTE Havs. I love that!!!

btw, have you decided on a name for Augie's little brother?

I think we need some puppy updates

ok, you asked for it lol

I took a video of Dante de Rose with my iPhone saying the words a week after he learned them. My friend came over. She was speaking to him and he repeated what she was saying. @0:01 of the video, it was him saying "Hello". @0:08 of the video, it was him saying "I love you".
