When you picture the Maltese dog it looks like a cross between a Doberman Pincher and a German Shepherd. This is because it was originally bred as a sporting dog, which is why it was used for competition. The Maltese dog was so popular that it was soon made a designer dog and is still very much in demand today. The Maltese was also very good at hunting when it was bred specifically as a hunting dog. These dogs are good at tracking things and can even find small animals that escape from litters. If that wasn’t enough, the Maltese is also a very good watchdog and will keep watch over your house from the main entrance until you come home.
When the movie “Dog”, starring Russell Crowe, was released, many people became fans of the film and went on to buy the Maltese dog. The movie followed a young stud dog named Brodie, who belonged to a rich English family. His owner, Frank, had plans to expand his business to Australia, so he got Brodie an import permit to bring the dog with him. Frank’s wife, played by Julia Roberts, was not so thrilled with the idea and tried several times to stop him, but eventually gave up after seeing the beautiful Australian countryside and seeing how wonderful the Maltese dog was.
As soon as they got on board, they began their journey and when they got to Sydney, it didn’t take long for them to become a bit confused as to what their new dog was supposed to look like. So, they took some time off to have some fun and visit a few different vet offices before settling on a Maltese named Fifi. They traveled all around Australia, visiting places such as Perth and Melbourne before finally settling down into their new home in Hobart.
So, when was the last time you took some time out to speak with a vet? It can be rather difficult to think about a human and a dog at the same time, which is why discussing the experiences of our canine friends can be a great bonding experience. In this discussion starter, we are going to take a look at a couple of experiences that were shared between Brodie and Fifi and how these two dogs became a picture of a maltese. There is definitely some humor in this discussion starter because the two dogs do tend to make each other laugh.
In November 2021, Fifi and Brodie, along with their owners, went on a trip to Melbourne, Australia. While there, the trio made plans to expand their horizons and get away from the small town atmosphere. While in Melbourne, the couple met some fellow maltese enthusiasts and met some potential investors for the business. Because of the success of the trip, the owners decided to expand their company and name it ” Picture of a Maltese”.
So, what brought about this new expansion? A few months after they returned home from their trip, the owners’ neighbor, Fifi, asked them if they would like to join her family in a local business. This was actually a spur of the moment decision, but when they talked about it later, they both agreed that they really wanted to start a business of their own and expand the company into a photography company. Because of the many people interested in owning a maltese, the owners were able to expand their horizons and turn their dream into reality.
So, how did the picture of a maltese “dog” come about? After the owners started the business in 2021, they knew that they wanted to do something different than what they had done in previous years. As they were looking for inspiration, they noticed that many small businesses were starting around the country. As they were talking about starting their own business, they started thinking about how they could expand their reach to include a little more of the world.
The result of the efforts of the owners and the assistance of the SPCA ( Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) was the formation of “The Picture of a Maltese Dog Collection”. These images of the maltese dog were then offered to companies who were in need of small pets. In addition to selling the pictures, they also offer training tips and information to help owners train their new pets. This is why the SPCA took so long to help make this popular idea a reality. They knew that with the help of a professional, the picture of a maltese “dog” would be an instant hit. Now, every business that wants to expand and care for their animals has the opportunity to do so with a professional picture of a maltese dog.
