Yup, they are pretty adorable malti-poos, part Maltese and part Poodle. That's why I call them the Adora-poos. The smokey gray one is Jones, as in Indiana Jones. And the white one is smaller and often mistaken for a girl. He's Champ because he's our alpha. Jones rolls in around twenty-three pounds and Champ at nineteen.
I knew we were adopting dogs when Handsome began researching and talking to me about various breeds. Maltipoos:
are easy going
are easy to train
But they know other things like laydown, or if I point to the back seat, they move off the console.
Jones loves to run-run-run around and Champ barks to egg him on. I say they are silly dogs, not show dogs.
BUT, ten years later, we're having changes. Jones has developed four lipomas, all non-cancerous. The vet is watching for growth.
Champ has trouble with a shoulder joint and sometimes limps. If only he wouldn't fly off furniture. Sigh.
Watching their changes has been hard this week.
Do you have elderly furry friends?
