What’s That On The Floor, Max?

Maltese are well known as artsy-craftsy canines. The Martha Stewarts of the species.

So I should not have been surprised when Max left a little gift on the floor.

It wasn’t very appetizing. In fact, it looked rather disgusting.

“What is it, Max?” I asked.

He replied, chortling in his sly Maltese manner, “It’s a little hand made Christmas gift for you and the DogMom.”

“But what is it, Max?”

It’s a…wait for it…here it comes…GINGER-BREAD HOUSE!!!

    • OK, that one drove me to the Goog. Witzelsucht /b>(German: [ˈvΙͺtsl̩ˌzʊxt] “joking addiction”) is a set of pure and rare neurological symptoms characterized by a tendency to make puns, or tell inappropriate jokes or pointless stories in socially inappropriate situations. You got me, smart aleck. Prepare yourself to defend against a future attack of even worse puns and some really long words that you will have to look up in your Funk & Wagnalls. But credit where due – that was a pretty good word find and sadly all too accurate.😁

        • Storytime: we were at place getting our propane tank (for BBQ) filled and Max was in the car while I came back from paying at the office, A guy was walking by the car while Max being exceptionally vocal. The guy didn’t see me but I clearly heard him mutter, “Yappy RV dogs…” This is now what we call the Malt any time he gets mouthy. “Be quiet you yappy RV dog.” 😁

            • Max loves people and doesn’t bark at them unless they knock on the door. But it’s the knocking that makes him bark. As soon as the door opens he becomes BFFs with the Jehovahs Witnesses, solar salesmen and Mormon missionaries. He does bark at other dogs from the car so maybe he spotted something that day. Oh, and squirrels. He goes completely bat-crap crazy when he spots a squirrel on the back fence. Strangely, he ignores the occasional possum.

              • Despite her bad manners, Elsa is a sweetheart at her core (she just has a lot of baggage i.e. neuroses from the puppy mill days that she’s never managed to unload). She also thinks anyone who rings the doorbell is a serial killer and any dog with the temerity of walking past the house is fair game for teeth gnashing and crazy off the charts barking/lunging. Good thing she’s not little or she’d have a really rough time overcoming prejudices while at propane filling stations.

              • Small Dogism…it’s systemic! Elsa gets a free pass on neuroticism – with her tough puppyhood she’s earned the right to be calibrated a little differently. Now she can sit back and enjoy dog nirvana with her brother Norm.
