Molly would want me to “keep my tail up.” I have made inquiry with a recommended maltese breeder in Seattle, Wash. I have selected a toy-sized female malti-poo (maltese-poodle cross) puppy. She is 7 weeks old today and weighs in at 2.5 pounds. Apricot and white in color. Her name is Abby.
It has never occurred to me to label anyone as a "periphery" member, Karen. Certainly Belle would have never considered it either when you made your promise to come on here & help folks out in her memory...And you do that quite well.
You make me smile w/your little puppy comments.
I look forward to seeing pics of your new little girl, Abby, & also think a little bit of poodle should make for a good mix. Let us know when she arrives. Chloe was 12 weeks when I got her.
So many of us have acknowledged through our Off Topic threads, the love we have for our pets as family members & my heart goes out to you for your loss of Miss Molly still. When Chloe gives me a scare, it shakes me to the very core. As you well know, I wasn't quiet about it.
