If I go out for the mail, or even just to water the plants out the front door, Violet greets me when I come back in like I have been gone for weeks! It is the same celebration as when I am gone shopping or when TB comes home from work.

She wags her bum and tail, brings some toy or piece of cardboard or bone and just gets so excited!

There is not a single fuzzy mouse toy in sight, but if we go anywhere overnight, by the time we get back, every single one we have bought over the last 14 years shows up on the bed.

For some reason I can't figure out, my little Maltese is trying to howl. The first time I heard it was about a week or so ago. It sounded like a baby crying, but he's definately trying to howl. He has his head back with his snoot up in the air. Woo woo woo woo!! If I knew ahead of time he was going to do it I would try to get it on video.

Spike has a Maltese also. Teddy is about three years old. He reads him pretty good. I will ask him if he ever does that. When does he seem to do it the most? I know Teddy will whimper if he is constipated.

I think he is just harking back to his wolf ancestry.

It is cute when little dogs do that, unless they do it too much!

Well, after 10 years I still find new things about Violet.

She loves banana, but we rarely give her more than a tiny morsel because she gets rather "stinky" from it. She is allergic to grains and beef but loves her pasta so TB will always save a couple of his gluten free noodles to put in her food dish.

Today, I was cutting up a rather large watermelon and some dropped on the floor. She ran to it but I fully expected a sniff and she would walk away. No sir. She gobbled it down and sat on the edge of the kitchen entrance waiting for more to drop. She even licked up the juice that ran off the cutting board. When we went to put it away, she followed us to the fridge and looked longingly. Go figure!

This little dog is at least 12 years old. We got him when he was 5 and his owner passed away and the family was looking for a new home for him. I was still working, but DH was retired so the dog became so attached to DH. If we come home and I come up the stairs and DH stays down locking up the garage, Pupper will whine until DH comes up the stairs. The two time he has done this howling, DH was down in the garage. Pupper will not go down the cellar steps, but he will whine at the door for DH. I think this howling is just a form of more intense whining. LOL The first time he did it I thought the sound was coming from the TV. It wasn't until I saw his head thrown back that I realized he was trying to howl. It doesn't sound like the howling of the 2 beagles who live a couple door up the street. So far, it's not often to become annoying. Years ago we had another dog who would try to howl when the fire whistles went off up at the firehall.

LP, we had one dog who would stand in the kitchen while I was cooking and scarf up anything that fell on the floor...even if it wasn't food! LOL She would actually jump up and catch it mid-air.

This dog we have now eats very little people food. He cannot have meat, as it becomes a disaster for us.

Violet knows she is not allowed in the kitchen, so she stays on the edge of either side (we have a small galley style). When something drops she zooms in, decides if she wants it and zooms out again! It is actually hilarious to watch!

There are certain meats (ham but not bacon) that she can't have or we have a lot of cleaning up to do.
