My Furry Babies.

The little one is CoCo Chanel and she is 18 months old, and my lil girl. Shes the sweetest thing ever and loves to cuddle.
Jack Daniels is 3 yrs old and he was my first dog ever as an adult that I have had to take care of. I am so in love with him...he has an old soul.

Maltese (dog)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Maltese is a small breed of dog in the toy group, known for its silky white hair. The Maltese breed is descended from dogs originating in the Central Mediterranean Area and is one of the oldest dog breeds. The breed is under long term patronage of Italy.[1]
This ancient breed has been known by a variety of names throughout the centuries. Originally called the "Melitaie Dog" he has also been known as "Ye Ancient Dogge of Malta", the "Roman Ladies' Dog," the "Majestic Creature", the "Comforter Dog," the "Spaniel Gentle," the "Bichon," the "Shock Dog," the "Maltese Lion Dog" and the "Maltese Terrier" amongst other names. Sometime within the past century, the dog has come to be known as the "Maltese". The Kennel Club settled on the name "Maltese" for the breed in the 19th century.[3]
According to the Fédération Cynologique Internationale, the name of the dog breed derives from the Semitic word, màlat. The FCI links the breed with the Mediterranean island of Malta, called Màlat (also Maleth) by the Phoenicians,[4] the Adriatic island of Mljet and the Sicilian
