I think it is raining maltese rescues around here. I got another call. This time the breeders had turned in a 9 year old (will be 10 in Dec.). I guess she was such a good mom that they bred her even longer than normal. Of course, she is missing many teeth and her tongue hangs out to one side. Her vision and hearing aren't the best either. But that is expected at almost 10. She is sooooo sweet. She is not shy at all like Kirby is. I am going to get her to the groomers tomorrow. I think she will be able to keep the hair on top, but she is very matted underneath. She just got spayed Tuesday, so I didn't want to ruch the grooming. Oh, I hope I can find a kind soul to let her live out her remaining years. She deserves that much atleast.
