LuLu and LoLLy!

We are 2 Maltese dogs down the road in Austin, and we wanted to shamelessly plug our one of kind 2009 Road Trip Calendar -- and it's only $13.99, so those with expensive taste can buy at least 10 and still be in good shape! Our calendar chronicles the adventures we had sky-diving, river-rafting, snow-boarding, shopping in NYC -- all the stuff we did when we got bored and borrowed the Humans credit cards to take a vacation. the calendar includes the postcards we sent home to our Humans, and it's been featured in Ladies Home Journal, Women's World, lots of other places! Profits go to rescue shelters in honor of Lolly, who's a rescue herself. Love, Your PaLs, LuLu and LoLLy! http://www.luluandlolly.com
