Arrival Story: Willie Mae came from a breeder in Tennessee. I had already had a Maltese named Waverly (see Santa pic below). Her breeder had an ad in Dog Fancy Magazine and had bred and showed many dogs and had an impressive website showing beautiful dogs and celebrity clients. One day we found out that there were 230 dogs confiscated from her house. Some of them had died and even her children were removed from the house.
Bio: Willie's eyes are a bit wall-eyed and she is nervous around other dogs and people who are not family. She is very intelligent and loves her mom very much. We have become active in the rescue group and she has had many foster brothers and sisters. Now she has a sister Abby and a brother Moses.
Yesterday when we were all at Miss Sandra's getting pretty, mom noticed a lady with two malteses off leash that had come in from outside. They had so much personality and were minding their mama so well. they were looking for new leashes and "talking" to her so mama learned that mom struck up a conversation with this pack.
It turns out these dogs are in Lady's Home Journal this month and have a website about their roadtrips. Their names are Lulu and Lolly and they raise $$ for rescue. They are 9.5 years young, just a little younger than me. Mom told them about Dogster.
Take a look at their website. Looks like they are white water rafting:
Pretty cool, huh?
Here's the article and a link to last year's calendar. You have to see these pics. They are so active! Parachuting, white water rafting, and motorcycling when they aren't fund raising! BOL! Cynthia said that the 2009 calendar is going to print right now. Click on the mini pics to flip through the calendar for 2007.
