What are the best books about Maltese? I don't plan to breed or show if that makes any difference.

One of my favorite maltese books is "The Maltese: Diminuitive Aristocrat" by Vicki Abbott. I also have a copy of "The Irrepressible Toy Dog" by Darlene Arden that is very good...it is not specific to maltese but it gives a nice overview of toy breeds in general.

I'm sure others will chime in with more suggestions, but I think the above two books would be a good addition to your library. JMO.

4. The Complete Maltese

5. The Maltese
By Bobbie Linden

You might want to go to Bobbie Linden's site and read all the good information there. She died about a year ago, but some of her friends keep her site going.
It's Bei-Jei Maltese. One of her last dogs, Tommy, is still showing. He had a Best in Show last weekend or the weekend before.

I love the Bhe-Jei Maltese site! I always go there for the maltese puppy stages of growth, I was sooo sad to hear about Bobbie Linden, I didnt know that until I read that in another post today

I love the Vicki Abbott book, she is so specific and its breed specific. I have some other books, but I feel like they just used the same book for every small breed and then slapped a pretty picture on the front.
