My daughter sent me this picture today of my little Malt x Shih Tzu back home in Australia. His name is Alfred and he is the nicest little guy and as you can see he has a really good playmate besides my grandson. My daughter says they are the best of pals too and are often seen sitting together in the sun.

You are right Bren, he has a wonderful life, that is why I couldn't take him away. He has our little grandson and Bugsy to play with and he is so very happy and my daughter loves him too. He is very well cared for, how could anyone want to put him through the flight and stress and take him away from all that just to have him here with us. Sometimes if we love something enough we have to let them go or stay where they are happy rather than take them away for our own need.

The car belongs to the grandson, quite snazzy hey!!!!!!!!
