I do love the Maltese and he follows me everywhere. He even follows me about the house and into the yard as I change into my shoes.
The Pomeranian views the space under the bed as his turf. Away from that area I typically ignore him and play with the Maltese. I had one confrontation and there will be no round three. As soon as I reach for a hockey stick the Pomeranian clears out fast. I am not letting him near my feet again..
