Well here I am again. My name is
Vanity. Mom is getting ready to do the one thing I hate mostest in the world.....
she's going to give me a bath!!!
said we "always" have to be clean????
Although You didn't ask (I
knew you were going to), I decided to give you a brief history of Foxstone
Maltese. Mom started in 1991 with "Brutus", her first Maltese.
Brutus is a nice guy but quickly showed Mom he was not a "show" dog.
Consequently, Mom quickly learned what not to do when showing
That's where I came into the picture! Since Mom had made all her mistakes (I
wish!!!) on Brutus, she decided to bring me from Arizona, where I was born,
to live with her in Colorado. Mom says that I was already "spoiled
rotten" when she picked me up. I quickly learned that I could wrap my
"new" Mom around my little paw with ease, so my show career sputtered a little until " I " decided it was time
to get serious..... hehehe.
We live here with several Maltese as well as several large mutts... er... dogs... that Mom
has also rescued over the years. I, of course, keep those big lugs in complete control at all times. After Mom got Brutus, her first Maltese, she found out that
she loved us so much that she would never have any other breed. Mom is one smart lady don't you think?
Mom says Squirt and
(a terrier-mix Mom found in a snowstorm), were "soul" sisters.
They even passed away within a couple of
months of each other.
always ask why the name "Foxstone" came to be our name. One of Mom's first
small breeds was a Pomeranian named "Squirt". Since Squirt looked kinda
"foxy" and we lived in a sand dune (no........... I'm not kidding), Mom
decided we were "Foxstones".
Hey......... beats the heck out of
One of our greatest
thrills is to travel around in the motorhome, Dad bought for us, to dog shows where some
of us can strut our stuff while the others just get to be cute. Showing Maltese is
Mom's passion. We don't get many puppies around here because Mom only breeds a
couple of litters a year. She says she would much rather show Maltese than breed
them. Good thing too..... I always have to teach those little toe-biters their place
and that's a lot of work!!
our favorite Aunt,
"Auntie Nan". Candy
"official" guest greeter.
changed since I first came to live here. We moved off the sand dune to this little
town because Dad works here. Yes........ he has a "real" job too........
not just motorhome pilot and chief pooper scooper. It's a nice little town..... when
we are all out in the front yard playing people stop by the house just to watch us.
We "always" give them a good show. They must like it too because they keep
you have it.... a brief tour of what Foxstone Maltese is all about. As Mom says....
the Maltese are what we are about. And those of us who live here are pretty
lucky. We get to roam the house, have a big grassy play area, and we own two nice
humans. What more could anyone ask??
