When I get back home he is sure to "punnish" me for having been gone to long. He will come running, then stop just out of reach and turn his back. For a couple of hours he will follow me around - just out of reach - and making sure I have to make an effort to come over and pet him. Next stage - sitting on my feet if I am standing still, or sitting on my lap if I have sat down anywhere. I think, he thinks this will keep me from going away to long again.
Lucky for me a few generous handfulls of his favorite treats will usualy pull him out of his snit by bed time.
Yes, he does have me well trained.

I have two dogs and one is a 5 year old male Maltese named Buddy. I've had dogs all my life and I've got to say that this little guy is my favorite (I love my other dog) but there is just something about a Maltese. I wish I had discovered this breed a long time ago. I tried a kennel once with bad results and a pet sitter (who didn't show up at the last minute) and now I only go on vacation if one of my two grown kids can come to my house and take care of them. They both have dogs themselves, but we can't take them to their houses for different reasons...my son has a Pug and he doesn't get along with my two male dogs and at my daughter's house, she has two female dogs, but no fence. They do much better if they are in their own home and someone can come and live with them or let them out and feed them several times a day. That's the only thing I hate about taking a cruise, I miss my dogs and I feel guilty even packing, because they know what's going to happen and they get mad at me.....won't come to me when I call them and things like that. Good Luck. Maltese are special little dogs and I love all dogs.
Happy Cruising....Sparkle 10
Our little dog is half maltese half poodle, but she is not the typical white dog. She is more black/ gray mix. (Super cute, if I can so myself.) any way, if your niece can't stay at your house, make sure to bring your doggies favorite toy and maybe a t-shirt of yours or something that has your scent on it so she feels more secure. When we travel we usually take our dog to my parent's house (her resort) and bring a ticking clock or small radio. She always has a radio on while we are not at home. She seems to adjust pretty well, but she sure likes it when we get home. Any way, good luck and happy, safe travels.

I carry a gun cause a cop is too heavy.

We are lucky to have my parents who are in good health and willing to watch Molly while we vacation. (We also watch their dog when they go out of town.) Even so when we pack her up to go she will be very sad and when we turn the corner to their house she knows what's coming. She will "guard" the door and won't let us leave their house. Last time my Mom had to hold her down (not easy as Molly weighs in at 95 lbs.) and we had to run for the front door. Molly will lay by their back door the entire time we are gone. It's pretty pathetic.
