While there are many dogs that visit the Smithfield Farmers Market each week, there are few that are known by name. If Steve Charles’s goldendoodle, Malibu, walks through the market, the vendors know her by name. She is 11.5 years old and was born in Alabama. Steve and his wife Janet first met her at the Norfolk Airport when she was 8 weeks old, and they’ve been in love ever since. She loves to go for car rides, and she will make you smile with her tricks. She can sit in both English and Spanish, and her “inside voice” makes Janet smile. Malibu has a 26 year old African grey parrot for a sibling. If you see Malibu when you’re visiting the farmers market, be sure to say hello!
