This Maltese just loves to say “cheese.” Ebony is Dianne Ramos’ furry friend who has never met a camera she didn’t like. When she hears “Instagram” or “Facebook,” she smiles and poses just so. Ramos agreed to foster Ebony when the pup was just six months old, but she foster-failed, and they have been together ever since. Neighbors can find Ebony strutting her stuff to the Lakewood Starbucks or chasing ducks at White Rock Lake. She is not even 2 years old but always makes her opinion known when she isn’t getting her way. She loves trips to the beach and isn’t afraid of big waves, but is just as happy in her own doggie pool at home, where she sports her doggo bikini in summer.
