I just read on Dooce's blog that if you mix a Maltese with a Poodle you get a Maltpoo. But Maltpoo doesn't flow off the tongue and it suggests, to me anyway, a cross between a Maltezer and Poo -as in Maltezer poo. Gross.
I suggest they change the name to Pootese. Trips off the tongue and sounds like you're talking about a fat cherub or Puti.
Now I'll get back to thinking about something that matters.
