I am happy to have found all of you -- new friends and some old ones too. My Tessa is 11 months old and is Jong-ee's sister or twin.. They were the only two in the litter. Mee has pictures that look just like my Tessa. I live in Santa Monica and right now, Tessa and I have been Christmas shopping every weekend. She loves to shop and we're actually all done. Now she's helping me WRAP the presents. Do your Maltese help you wrap presents?
