Well I decided I must have a dog and it was going to be a Maltese. My husband was very unsure of a new family member. He was worried it would be too much of a change for our life styles. Two days before I was to pick up our new puppy my husband still did not believe I was going through with it.
I told Fred (my Husband) I wanted him to be involved and would like him to pick out the name for our puppy. The first thing out of his mouth was expensive. We laughed and I said that was much too long so we shorted it to Spencer. We have the best dog ever and after about 1 month with Spencer, Fred said to me that was the best money I ever spent.
Cubby was named because as a Maltese Shih Tzu mix rescue. He was a little shy, fearful and was hiding when I first met him at a dog adoption. He was under the chair of his first handler at the rescue and would not come out except for me. He still likes "cubbyholes" at home and sleeps in his little canvas doggie condo at night, his own personal Cubbyhole.
Cubby is a cuddley, friendly and sweet boy and is well-adjusted, along with his brother Anderson Riley a Wheaten Terrier Poodle mix.
Chowder is a 2 year old full-blooded Maltese. He is small for his age. He is at his adult size and he is only 4.5 pounds. He loves to play with empty toilet paper rolls and loves being around people and children. He is full of energy and loves to run and play back and forth across the floor of our house. He also enjoys rearranging furniture in our living room.
