But back to Malta :)
I'm part of a yahoo group with GDB people and someone was asking about Malta's litter. Someone responded and said they were raising Malta! She sent me a couple of updated pictures (below) and let me know she is heading back the middle of April as a potential breeder! It totally amazes me how much a puppy can change. This is what she said about her now:
"She is really a darling girl. Tall and more "hunting" variety looking than some, we have had her since she was 8 1/2 (9?) months old, and she has stolen our hearts. She is very sweet - although she is certainly a puppy in a big dog body! She often times has no idea just how big she really is!! She has matured a ton since she came to us, and our fingers are crossed that she makes it as a breeder. That would be so wonderful! Especially since there seem to be several clubs/families that have a vested interest in her, it would be a really big fan base for her puppies!"
Here are some pictures of her as a puppy and today a year later!
In the past month:

I always love to see how certain puppies mature over time. I also love that GDB is like one big family. :)
