We took Jolie on her first camping trip on the long weekend (canadian not US) and she was awsome. She is the biggest trooper, she got so dirty and was loving it, rain and shine. She did so well at that I thought she should try a little rock climbing (her daddy's a pro), so we took her to one of our local mountain and for a 3 pound pup she was kicking a**, she could climb a rock twice her height and kept on truckin. We are just waiting for summer so we can take her paragliding, she'll be the first hard core maltese. If anyone else wants to join let me know, will have a "HC-Malt" club.
