3 ¾ pounds of pure energy.
We apologize it has taken
us so long to get this letter off to you. Our only excuse is every free
minute we have, we love to spend with our lovable babies Scooter and LuLu
We are delighted and
thrilled to write a letter of recommendation for you to share with
potential and future dog owners. Our experience has been positive from
our initial contact with you, throughout the buying process and continues
with your occasional updates and inquiries into how our puppies are
doing. We talked to many breeders to ensure we were adopting from a
breeder that conducted their business with ethics, bred healthy and
sociable dogs and were dedicated to finding loving homes for their
puppies. Through our search, we felt you met and exceeded all of these
Now lets talk about
Scooter and LuLu Bella, the cutest and most lovable dogs that ever were!
Scooter is our ½ Lhasa Apso ½ Maltese (from [Buggy]). He is such a gentle
natured dog who absolutely had our hearts the minute we saw him at 5
weeks. Scooter excelled in his first puppy socialization class learning
commands with ease which has made for such a pleasurable dog. He is well
behaved, definitely a smart little guy. By the time he was 6 months old
he knew how to sit, down, stay, give ‘5’, give high ‘5’, give kisses and
roll over. He is the star of the neighborhood with his gentle and loving
Scooter is also such a
handsome dog, we never leave the house without being stopped on the street
to ask about him. His coat is thick, his hair is soft, brilliant white
and dark black. His eyes melt you, his teeth are straight and his health
has been excellent. Our vet has complimented him since the first day we
took him in.
Based on our experience,
we immediately knew we wanted another dog. Not only for our enjoyment, but
we also wanted a playmate for Scooter. You were the first person we
called to find out if you had any puppies available, and much to our
dismay, you had just sold your last Maltese.
It was a surprise phone
call from you a few weeks later that brought us our LuLu Bella. Her
original owner was unable to keep her and you called to let us know you
had a beautiful little girl Maltese if we wanted her. I think our
decision took all of 2 seconds even though we had already placed a deposit
on another dog. The idea of having another one of [Buggy’s] puppies (mom
is Nutter Butter), ½ sister to Scooter, we knew we would be getting a
We far underestimated
what LuLu would bring to our lives. The minute she walked in the door
everything changed. She is 4 pounds of pooch with 100 pounds of
personality. She constantly keeps us laughing and watching in awe. She is
always on the look for something fun to do and often entertains herself.
She is independent but yet the most lovable little snuggle bug. She is
bold and courageous, yet sweet and lovable. The absolute perfect blend of
all characteristics. She is almost catlike in the way she pounces around
the house and will come up and lay down right next to your head and fall
asleep instantly. She gives vigorous kisses a thousand at a time, and
then will jump down and go plop down on her brother Scooter and coerce him
They are the best of
friends, there is almost a constant patter of little paws on our floors
scurrying around chasing each other. When they are not playing chase, they
are curled up in their bed together sleeping. LuLu can’t stand to be
without her brother, she has to know where he is at all times.
LuLu is taking after her
brother with all of her tricks and easy learning abilities. Since we got
LuLu at the beginning of the winter season we decided to house train her.
She potty-trained very easily and after only a couple of weeks was going
to her “potty” on her own. She also has received nothing but compliments
from our vet for being a healthy, happy and well bred dog.
Our house is full of
life, and full of energy and full of love thanks to Scooter and LuLu. I’ve
been a dog owner all my life and there is something about these little
guys that is just so special. We are just nuts about them, and so is
everyone in our neighborhood. It’s a common occurrence to get a knock on
our door from one of the kids on the block to see if Scooter and LuLu can
come out to play.
We can’t thank you enough
for our little babies. Please rest assured that these guys are getting
more love than they can probably handle and are very well taken care of.
We would be happy to speak to anyone thinking of buying one of your
puppies. It takes a lot of time, attention and energy to be an active dog
owner, but it is by far one of the greatest rewards in life you can
All our best to you. We
will continue to send updates and pictures, Scooter and LuLu are still the
best dressed dogs in town, we will have lots more pictures to share in the
years to come.

Here are Lulu and Scooter.
Lulu is a purebred maltese and Scooter is a Maltese/Lhasa Apso mix.
Buggy is the sire to both of them.
They live very elegantly with their owners in Portland, OR.

Our "baby" better known as "Chief Thumper" and we call him "Thumper" is a
very loving little bundle of joy, and is full of all kinds of energy, and
has brought us so much happiness, it is unbelievable. I do not think he
will be any bigger than he is now, and weighs in between 3.6 and 4.lbs.
Depending how much he has eaten. He can be a little pig one second, and
then eat nothing for hours. He will let us know when he is hungry though.
He goes for a walk every day with his "Dad" and lets him know when it is
time to go. He loves to ride in the car, and attracts all kinds of
attention with people. They always want to know where we got him, so we
tell them. They can hardly believe that he is almost 2 yrs. old, but think
he is the cutest little joy ever. He is picky about some folks, and lets
us know if he likes them or not. Thumper thinks he is as big as any horse,
and has no fear of other dogs. He thinks they should all be his friends.
Our outside cat, who would not let other dogs around him, is converted and
seems to love Thumper, as he goes nose to nose, and jumps all over the
cat. Thumper loves sleeping on his back, with all four legs up in the air.
It is so funny to watch. He has tons of toys, and loves frogs the most. He
has on frog which is bigger than he is, and if you touch him just so, it
will say "I love you" It did not take long for him to figure that one out,
and we hear it all the time. He loves to retrieve when you throw, and
wants more all the time.
He is the best little love, and is so good. He was "Potty" trained to go
out side within a couple of weeks after we got him home. Just seems like
that natural thing for him to do, and it was easy for him to learn. We
seldom leave him at home alone, and if we do, he sits in his chair and
watches for us to come back. So happy to see us, and we him. Course we
leave the radio on for him so he will not be too lonely.
We will keep you up-dated, and look forward to keeping up with your web
site. Very cute babies and I get a kick out of what others have to say
about their "kids".
So glad we found you when we did. Thumper is the best of the best.
Sue, George and Thumper too !!!! From Hood River.
