But, don't hold it against her pup. Some of the little ones can be yappers. One of ours is 7 pounds of flea fightin muscle and his bark is definitely worse than his bite, especially since he only has 2 teeth left. But, apparently he does seem to think he is a Doberman and not a maltese, which is why we named him Napoleon and his neighborhood rep is that we have some ferocious house-guarding Britlingen - until they meet him in person. This usually induces some major laugh-out-loud greetings and Napoleon usually reveals what a major closet cuddle fester he actually is.
