In 2010, I fell in love with a furry white ball with legs. Half Maltese and half Poodle, he is known as Argos. Big in name, big in personality and small in stature. He enjoys long walks around the neighborhood, treats of all kinds, tennis balls, empty water bottles and like any well respected dog, detests baths and teeth brushing. He’ll oblige only if there is a nice treat waiting at the end of the horrible ordeal. His favorite pastimes include, fetching, cuddling, barking and stealing food. Visiting grandma is the highlight of any week where his small human cousins are easily bullied into giving up juice boxes, cookies and toys.
