Hi. I've been reading this forum for quite some time, but this is my first post. I lost my 11 year old maltipoo in 2009 to kidney failure after several surgeries to remove bladder stones. The grief was almost unbearable. A few months later, I stumbled upon a maltese litter at my vet's office. (This is a very small town so that was quite a shock!) A woman I knew had just bred her first litter. As we use the same vet, and my vet knows her dogs well, I decided to buy one of her puppies. After going through my maltipoo's kidney and bladder issues and reading about liver shunts, patellas, etc. on this forum, I also purchased a health insurance policy for my new puppy. Hopefully, the policy will prove to be a waste of money, but I feel better having it just in case.

Sassy will turn 2 this month. She is the light of my life. As I read this forum almost daily, I thought it was time to introduce myself. I have learned so many, many things by reading this forum and am very grateful to all of you for sharing your experiences.

Thank you and Happy New Year!!!

Karen

Thanks for the warm welcome. Sassy is a sweetheart, and I adore her. Still, I can't help but drool over all the beautiful dogs on this forum. My dream is to one day have a maltese to show (I SO admire what Stacy and Marina have accomplished), but with the economy the way it is, it's out of the question for now. Oh well, a show quality dog couldn't give any better kisses than Sassy does. I really felt it was fate when I found her at the vet's office. Actually, her breeder had already named her Miracle, and I guess running into them the way I did sort of was. We tried calling her "Miracle" for awhile, but it seemed too serious for a puppy.

Sassy is a cutie pie. Congrats! Malteses are special and loving babies that give back way more than whatever they recieve.

I would love to see more pictures of Sassy.
