Arrival Story: we were looking for a puppy in the paper for our mom who has very bad eye sight so we wanted to get her a dog that was white so she could see it better. so we went down and found all these baby maltese puppies playing together and first we picked up her sister but then we picked up poopalee and knew she was the one.
Bio: My name is Poopalee and I was born on july 31st, 2001 in Enon, Ohio. I am a registered AKC Maltese so my official name is actually "Princess Pik Of The Dewdrops". The daughter of Mommy the maltese and Daddy the maltese, i was one of three females in a litter of four. My grandma and grandpa Pierce listed us in the newspaper, my mommy2 bought and read the newspaper and called grandma and grandpa to set up and appointment and...well anyway to make a long story short, I was the one picked out by my mommy2 and my aunt cj to live in total and complete Spoiledom. I moved to Springfield on Sept. 30th (my very first bye-bye ride experience) to live with my new brother, Squeek and sisters, Puff, and Itty...they are cats, but I don't hold it against them. I was actually a gift to mommy2's ailing mother (who is mommy1), and she thought i was adorable. The first night away from my first family was pretty hard, I cried a little, but the fact that my new human daddy let me sleep on his head on the pillow, made things much better. A few days after that, I started to really be interested in what the humans referred to as "bye-bye rides". I found that when i went with them, i could sit wherever i wanted and get to look at things pass by the window, and get bites of food in the process, why, I got my first taste of ice-cream during one of these little bye-bye outings. Sometimes I even got to stick my head out the window, (that's my favorite thing in the whole world!) Needless to say I learned quickly that bye-bye rides rock!
I also developed a very interesting hobby...windowlicking. Now i realize that you humans don't have any clue why we doggies do this, but i tell you, there aint nothing like a cool refreshing window to lick on a hot summer's day when the air-conditioning has been on, (incidentally, i should tell you i am petrified of the heat and the air in the car when its turned on...the noise it makes is really scary!!!). I was a rather ornery puppy growing up was filled with endless tissues & styrofoam plates torn up and strewn about the house, and countless toothmarks on anything wooden within reach. I developed a taste for kitty doo, which prompted my mom to get a baby gate for the upstairs to keep me away from the litterboxes, and paper training was a hit and miss situation...oh and lets not forget the teething part. If theres one thing i loved to chew on as a baby more than furniture, it would have to be my humans. As I matured, I had alot of pent-up energy that my working humans couldn't ever completely wear out of me, so to keep me from getting bored, because we know what puppies do when they get bored...(so much for that nice clean floor) my aunt cj and mommy2 took me to meet the man of my dreams...a sexy little hunk of 6 lb. maltese hottie man named Chester. The first time I laid eyes on him, I was amazed by this timid OLDER man, (he was 1 &1/2, I was only 6 months). We weren't sure of each other, but after a thorough checking over of each other, and this strange house, we were playing in no time. I knew right then, he would be the puppily man for me:) I got frequent playtime at Chester's house, his mom and dad, Aunt Donna and Uncle John, saw to it that all my needs were met. We shared everything, waterbowls, food, treats,wee wee pads, but sometimes, i admit, I was a little booger and i stole chew sticks from him. He didnt seem to mind though, all he wanted to do was play and chase the cats, I knew I had found my soulmate as I love to do the same things. Everything was bliss. As I approached six months of age however, mommy took me to get "fixed"...Of course I wasn't aware that i had ever been broken...but apparently that was the case as I had to go see the baby doctor. Mommy said she'd be back to get me and sure enough she did come back, although it seemed like forever. That day i got lots of extra care and attention, so I know mommy still loves me:) Shortly after that I went for my first grooming, and had to face the dreaded blow-dryer. That thing is scarier than the heat and air in the car! I still get really scared when they run it around me and I'm old enough to have puppies of my own for goodness sake! So long about February of this year, I got a new baby sister. She's a black and white Shih Tzu-japanese chin mix named Chewy. At first I wasn't sure of her either. She was hyper and all, and I was scared to get near her. But by the end of the week, we became play buddies, so now I have someone to play with all the time. The best part is, that her brother, Cody went to live with Chester to become his new brother so he has someone to play with too all the time. When all four of us get together its total playtime chaos, it's awesome! So that's my story up until the present.
