For a few weeks now Edz and I have been talking about getting a second dog. Edz knew she wanted a small dog, just like Oreo, so we starting asking around if anyone knew anyone who had purebred puppies available.
We eventually found out about a family in Papago who had two litters of Maltese pups. We gave them a call and after some difficulty finding the house, brought Snow White Blanco Villagomez home.
Snow White is a female Maltese with pure white fur on most of her body and light brown ears. I expect the ears will turn white when she gets older, just like Oreo's did.
Speaking of Oreo, I don't think he quite knows what to make of Snow White. He sniffed her once and then decided she wasn't worth his time. I wonder if he knows that she'll be hanging around for the next couple of, well...decades?
Just so that there is no confusion, Edz is the one who named Snow White. I had suggested Buffalo Hunter Wolf's Bane, but she didn't like it. Snow White it is.
Edz took the naming of Snow White as an opportunity to make fun of Americans.
She told me, "Americans always name their dogs after food. Filipinos give their dogs human names."
To which I responded, "Yeah, we may name our dogs after food (i.e. Oreo), but at least our dogs aren't food."
She thought that was funny.
