Arrival Story: We don't know how old Crumpet is, because we adopted her from the Town Lake Animal Shelter. Crumpet loves living with us, and she never strays far from home. We let her out to go potty, and she does her business on the lawn and comes right back in. Crumpet is getting to be quite the prima donna princess, though. She hates to get her feet wet, and she doesn't like to go outside if it's wet or cold or windy or hot- you get the idea!
She is a very sweet, peaceful dog, but she will growl and bark and let you know if she's not happy. The groomer loves her. I have to say that Crumpet is quite spoiled now, making up for the unpleasant beginning she's had in life. We always sneak her extra treats to make up for her siblings' pilfering of her treats. She has her own wardrobe of outfits (dresses, coats, and jackets) and bows (mostly baby barrettes and ponies, as well as bows from her groomer).
Bio: Crumpet loves attention and being held and petted. She spins around when she's excited (doughnuts!) and is always asking to be picked up! Children love scooping her up!
Crumpet sleeps a lot since she's older, but she's a bundle of energy when she's awake!
Well, it's another birthday, sweet Crumpet, but the pain of missing you still lingers. You were my sweet, sweet, happy Crumpet. I thank you for bringing Tidbit to us, but although we love her to pieces, there will never be another Crumpet.
Well, Mummy got a call fwom da local Maltese rescue today! Dey sed dey hab da pawfect female Maltese fur Mummy and Daddy! Da backgwound sounds weally familiar ;)
Dis pup is approximately 4-6 years old and was a bweeder pup fwom a puppy mill in Dallas. She has hardly any teef and is deaf in one ear. Dey sed she was da sweetest, most affectionate pup! Dat she sleeps a wot, but is quite active when she's awake! HEE HEE! Mummy sed she sounds just wike anudder Maltese dey knew!
Den da lady told Mummy da pup's name- it's Roxy! ***GASP!*** Just wike da dog dat killed me-Crumpet!
Mummy was shocked and didn't know what to fink! Da pup sounded so much wike me-Crumpet- when dey furst rescued me fwom da animal shelter, so Mummy weally wants to rescue her, but she didn't know if da pup's name was a sign of some sort, and whether it was a good or bad sign.
Mummy talked to Daddy about dis, and Daddy thought maybe it was me- Crumpet- sending dem some type of message. Grandma sed dat she thought it might mean dat I- Crumpet- want Mummy and Daddy to forgive Roxy and move on. Of course, Grandma also sed dat dat rescue Maltese will need a name change pronto! Good fing Mummy and Daddy alweady got a name picked out and weady (wif a wittle help fwom me)!
Well, Mummy needs to schedule an interview and meet-and-gweet wif Roxy da Maltese next week. I guess we'll see if she's da pawfect pup- and whether she'll get along wif Winsty! BOL!
We'll keep you pupdated!

You see Mummy finally convinced Daddy to rescue anudder female Maltese! Dey eben picked out a name alweady (shhh! It's a secwet still, but I helped dem pick it out!) Mummy eben filled out an application wif a local Maltese rescue gwoup today.
