What Is It About Maltese Dogs?

Yesterday, I swear, that I saw three people in the passenger seat of their vehicles with a maltese terrier on their lap. I thought that the only Lap dogs were Alaskan Malamutes and Huskies, which may be the same breed. I don't know, I'm a bit ignorant.

Last night after having some chips by the river, following our tea, we went for a walk. Lo and behold what should I see but some fellow walkers and one of them was carrying his maltese terrier.

Excuse me, sir. That hairy lump under your arm is a dog. They get rather unhealthy if they don't exercise. It's not a bloody handbag. Let the poor thing go for a walk. What favour do you think that you are doing it by carrying it? Increase the risk of obesity and heart disease, have no natural wear-and-tear of its claws, etc.

Is the maltese terrier the new poodle?

Have a heart, Hammy. Those little ones can get tuckered out easily, especially if they're older.

Hammy said...

Exactly my point. They should be fit and healthy and not in need of being carried by apparently well-meaning people.

You're heartless.
