Mochi the Maltese

Today, my friend's gf and I took my friend's friend's dog Mochi, and went hiking at Lighthouse Park in West Van. It was a perfect length hike, with a bit of rain, which I prefer! We went with a local hiking group. Mochi, the dog, is this tiny white Maltese that looks like these:

It was the friendliest, most energetic dog out of all of them. Its legs were like three inches long and yet it jumped up stairs three times its height and tumbled down cliffs along with the big dogs. The only two times I heard it yelp was once, when someone stepped on its foot, and another time, when the biggest dog was playing too rough with it. Add the fact that the dog is hypo-allergenic and doesn't shed, and the result is that I really want a Maltese now!

In slightly related news, I also decided to jump back into soccer this weekend, at a local indoor sports arena. I played on one team that was incredibly good, almost a professional level, and then stuck around to play on another friend's team, which was not quite as good but still a higher level of play than I'm at right now. Needless to say, I'm sore but it feels soooo good.

If you're looking for a new pet, I highly recommend a Maltese. I had one just like that picture for 14 years and she was the best dog ever!!
