Meet Phoebe Mae...

Phoebe Mae is my dog - a Maltese.  I adopted her from the Watauga Humane Society on April 5, 2006.  She was 3 years old then.  Before she was taken to the humane society, she was living in a puppy mill in a trailer with 35 other dogs.  She had 3 litters of puppies within her 3 years of life.  She had never been outside, nor had she ever had dog food.  Over the last 2 years with Phoebe Mae, we have really loved watching her develop a sweet personality and really funny habits.  When I first adopted her, she did nothing but sit and look depressed all day.  She wouldn't eat dog food, was not housebroken, and bucked like a bronco if you put a leash on her.  Now, she LOVES to eat dog food (and anything else she can put in her mouth... last week we found her eating a DumDum lollipop the same way a human would eat one), she tells you when she needs to go outside, and she doesn't really need a leash outside - she stays right by your side.  She can sit, shake, dance, catch treats in her mouth, and is learning "Lay Down".  If you tell her to "Go get your baby," she will run and bring you one of her 20495825610245 toys.  She loves playing on PhotoBooth on her mom and dad's mac. 
This dog LOVES wearing clothes, and you better believe she dresses up for Halloween.  Maybe soon I'll do a Phoebe Phashion Show and take a picture of her in every outfit she owns...  Anyways... all of this was meant to introduce you to the spoiled little dog we love, and give you some background knowledge before watching this video of her.  Make sure your volume is up, so you can hear her talking in her sleep!!

I was going to say that that was the freakiest dog I'd ever seen...till I realized you were warping her face :)! In that case, she's very cute and sounds like a joy.....good practice for a baby (hee hee :)!).

She is so cute! Trust me, we're as obsessed with our dog as you are with little Pheebs (can I call her Pheebs?). And we dress ours up at Halloween too! Although, this year, she may get a handmade costume since the price of dog costumes are ridiculous!

I love her. And I actually know her in personal. (Someone said that to me once. That they wanted to get to know me in personal. See how I've brought it right back around to me?)

I am new to your blog and loving it; however, I must admit I was a little freaked out at the pics of your girl, Phoebe Mae...until I realized they were distorted. Too funny!

I have a puppy mill rescue Maltese also...his name is Baxter. I have a post about him here (http://mytwosons-kelley.blogspot.com/2008/05/baxter-aka-woo-woo_31.html)
