Lucky the Maltese Mix

Dog Breed: Bichon Frise / Maltese

Lucky loves to play all day long--he never takes a nap during the day! He loves going for walks, especially to the beach. He's a good swimmer--when he goes in the water it's usually to try to save me. I have to go in first and when I'm not in view he will swim out and jump into my arms. He loves to play hide and seek. He goes on a mad run and dash around the house and in and out of the back garden, jumping (which looks more like flying) from sofa to sofa and up on the bed and in and out of the garden. Then he just flops down on the floor. It's the funniest thing to watch as you have to stay out of his way when this is going on. He has brought so much joy into my life. He is always happy except when I am putting his harness on to go for a walk. If he sees me getting it he will hide under the bed. Before I got him, I suffered from terrible depression, staying in bed for days on end, but since getting him I wake with a smile every day. He sleeps in the bed with me and showers me with kisses to wake me up and if that doesn't happen quickly enough he will lay across my head until I wake up and give him a belly rub.
