Puppy pictures!

So, here's PJ. He's a Maltese.





Right now, he's alternating between standing at the door barking at my neighbors, and lying in front of the door gearing up for more barking.



As if he's big enough to protect either of us.

He's cute! But what's up with the bandana?

He seems to like it, so I'm not going to take it away from him, even if it is a little dorky.

That's a good looking dog you got there. When I was growing up my grandparents had a pair that looked a lot like him. They were great fun for a long time.

Good luck with the barking and house training!

Too cute! Maltese are really smart and stacks of fun.

He's adorable. I'm a little jealous. Life hasn't been the same since Phineas the betta fish died. But I'm clearly not ready for a mammal.

What a cutie!! I love it when dogs throw themselves down...all splayed out like that. too freaking cute!

I think the bandana's cute.

Matt: I think the barking will stop when he gets used to being in an apartment rather than a house. but he's pretty much already trained.

talkingbudgie: He's very smart. He already conned me into moving his crate into my bedroom at night.

Caroline: I had a betta fish that committed suicide by jumping out of its bowl. This is my first foray into the pet world since. We'll see how it turns out.

Ryane: He really was guarding the door. And while he is very big for a Maltese, he is still a tiny dog. So unless we get attacked by a leprechaun, he's not going to win the battle.

DSL: It's not the best bandanna -- and it came loose this morning, during our second walk. But clearly he needs to be more fashion forward. I'm going to try to get him something with skulls and crossbones. Or argyle.

He is a adorable! I am glad you found him and are having a good time with him. You know they have lots of Christmas bandanas along with other holiday wear for his size.

dara said...

Sara: He is cute.

Blakely: Yeah, but he's a Jewish dog. :P And I thought you told me not to dress him up too much.

DSL said...

Go with the argyle. Skull and bones is so passe. :-p

Miss Scarlet said...

OMG I LOVE HIM!!

dara said...

DSL: Yes, but he's a punk rock dog. He needs a mohawk too.

Scarlet: He says thanks and he loves you too. He's going to start his own fan club.

DSL said...

I'm with the mohawk too. Argyle and Mohawk. He'll be his own dog.

He is definitely a sweetheart.
