   Leave a bone for Massimo

Massimo, Mass, Massie-Moe, Big Guy, Fluff-butt, Killer, Mook (yeah, I dunno where that came from either)

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

January 13th 2004

keeping me company :)

Bath time! (and right now his new sister, Mini)

Favorite Toy:
His lamby...and his sister got him into the cardboard toilet paper rolls and dixie cups. She's easy to please. Haha.

Favorite Food:
Canidae Lamb/Rice

Favorite Walk:
In the yard or around town.

Best Tricks:
He sits, stays, dances, walks on his hind legs, and he speaks, he "shhhhh's" (quiets down), gives kisses.. But his BEST trick is doing any random trick -and looking at the treat container- just to get a treat. I think he's got ME trained!

Arrival Story:
****************PLEASE READ************** If you are wondering why Massimo's pictures are all covered in writing, please look at the last picture in his profile. Massimo's identity was stolen from here, his dogster profile was listed on to scam unwitting buyers. His pictures were posted (along with MY CHILDREN which upset me tremendously!! -He was sitting in their power-wheel vehicle and it made for a really cute picture-) and HE was being advertized as a 3 month old FEMALE puppy named "Missy" who was for sale. I am STILL trying to get the seller to take his last picture down. They have taken all the rest down due to my relentless pestering to get my children off their ad. BEWARE. There are many other dogster members on that site. I have contacted a few myself to let them know their dogs were being exploited. Because they stole Massimo's pictures, I made dang sure to personalize each and every one to make it harder for them to use. The people out there who do this sort of thing are despicable. Makes me sick to my stomach to think there are people out there who are getting scammed. **UPDATE** puppyfind contacted me and said I had proven beyond a doubt that the seller was fraudulent and promptly removed them from their site (YAY FOR ME!!). However they told me that since their sellers aren't monitored that they couldn't guarantee the seller would not return. So I am keeping this warning up. Thanks for listening! :D ********************************** ******* Now I return you to your originally scheduled ********************************** ********** I have always loved the breed. I used to watch dog shows and make my husband watch with me to see the Maltese. Well, he bought me Massimo from a local breeder for an anniversary present. He said that now that I have one of my own I can't make him watch dog shows just to see them anymore. Fine with me!!

Hi! My name is Massimo. I'm an altered. male Maltese. I have silky white hair, dark chocolate brown eyes and I have a slim and slender build. I’m 9" tall and 9" long and I'm 5 lbs of furry fury. Before I go on, I should tell you that I have been diagnosed with epilepsy. I have tonic clonic seizures (formally called grand mal) and it's horrifying for my human to witness. I am on medications called phenobarbital and potassium bromide to reduce the frequency of seizures. I am also given valium after I have a seizure to keep me from going into another one. I like to go on car rides and visit my mom's friend's German Shepherd, Tirah, wow, she's cute! Sometimes I get to see some of my biological family, and thats a hoot....they're the same size as me!! I see my sisters Angel and Mira every now and then. They're fun, but sometimes Angel plays a little rougher than I like. I also like to chew, I've tried many different chew toys, and I can't live without my bacon flavered edible nylabones. I might add, I have quite the extensive wardrobe....I don't really like wearing clothes, but I do have a lot. I deal with the sweaters, but I do not like wearing the silly outfits with the pants or the overalls (that everyone says I look gorgeous in), the fluffy jackets with the marabou hoods or the big bulky parkas . But mom says if I want to go outside when it's cold out, wearing a coat is a MUST........ and she MAKES me wear the silly clothes once in a while on "special" occasions.... I also have a pretty baby-blue carrier mom totes me around in. I don't LOVE it, but I deal with it..she says I'm safe in there. My only major dislike is bath time....I can SO live without that...but I do have to say, I look absolutely FABULOUS after I'm all cleaned, blowdried, trimmed and dolled up! :D Oh and you should come visit us at: it's a great place to talk and learn about Maltese. :)
