I've always wanted a Maltese, and I saw the cutest one the other day. But, I'm not sure it would be a good idea to introduce a tiny Maltese to our rough and tumble household. Next to my three men, a lab and a golden retriever, the poor little thing would probably never survive.
I'll wait until the boys are grown and on their own before I actually consider getting one. It might be a good cure for empty nest syndrome.
