MEET THE SCHNAUZERS! ~ZEUS

Oh boy… Where do I start with this HUGE personality? Zeus is a big ham – when I don’t have a camera out, anyway. As soon as Zeus sees the camera he gets all shy, like an out-going kid who never takes a good picture… 

He loves to be the center of attention when we have company and will do anything to get as many snacks and snuggles as he can. Oh, but not long snuggles… There are so many things to do and places to patrol.

First thing in the morning, he needs to do his patrol around our property when he goes outside… His rounds are almost always the same; pee on mom’s driver-side tire (to make sure no other dogs try getting chummy), proceed in a clockwise manner around the house and pee on the tree, then the other bush, then come back to the front step when finished.

OH! And barking at the cat is MANDITORY any time that slinky feline may be anywhere within earshot… Because cats are totally the worst.

Zeus is a happy-go-lucky, sometimes shenanigans-causing, wet-nosed teddy bear. Have you ever tried giving a haircut to an unwilling, wiggly little critter only to have them sheepishly act like they didn’t mean to make it take 3 times as long once they’re done..? Yeah, they know you can’t stay mad.

Favorite treat? FOOD! Any kind of food will go over quite well… Except maybe veggies, one wouldn’t want to be too healthy. Although, for as much as Zeus likes his treats, Lady is often smart enough to pull off stealing his treat and still getting her own if I don’t catch her scheme in time.

Funny Quirk? The first endearing trait that jumps to my mind isn’t really a quirk… It is the gentle way that Zeus plays with his pups, rolling onto his back and letting them climb all over him, tugging at his ears. He will pounce playfully toward them and then they playfully mimic the pounce back at him.

Meet the Schnauzers! – Bianca

Bianca 1

Bianca is my extremely loyal, snuggly, and often quite serious gal. She is 100% my dog – and no-one else’s! Which isn’t to say she doesn’t like other people; quite the opposite. She LOVES when we have company and she can get unlimited attention, however if there is a tiny chance she could be on my lap instead, you better believe she will be!

That is my take on this breed; friendly to pretty well anyone, however they know who their family is and home is where the heart is. And home for them is wherever you are – including camping, fishing, and kayaking!

Side note… if you plan to take your pup kayak fishing like I do, I STRONGLY recommend getting them a doggie life jacket. Oh, and plan to be a good multi-tasker the first time you catch a fish when they are with you. The first time this happened with Bianca in my kayak she tried jumping out to catch the fish for me as I was trying to land it! What can I say; she was a little over-zealous… until she got used to the fishing and decided to take a nap instead.

Her funny quirk? She has one ear that stands straight up and the other than sometimes flops over in the cutest way. OH! And she knows how to “dance” on her back legs in a circle to earn treats.

Favourite Treat? So far, it is DEFINITELY my homemade pumpkin dog treats! To be honest, I was tempted to try it because it smelled soooo good when I was making it; maybe I will with the next batch!

Meet the Schnauzers! Lady

I will start working on introductions for my 3 Mini Schnauzers between puppy cuddles from our current litter…

Lady is our gorgeous tri-colored female with tones ranging from black, grey, and white. And I can guess what you are all thinking – are her eyelashes Photoshopped?? Nope. Not even a bit. I find it slightly amusing that my dog has eyelashes that put mine to shame, even with mascara!

She is a very friendly, people dog. If given the opportunity, she would go everywhere with me! Her puppies have all been very outgoing little guys who are far from shy.

As soon as I sit on the couch, she is snuggled in next to me – or more accurately, on top of me with her chin on my shoulder!

Funny quirk? If she sees me watching her eat or drink, she starts wagging her tail. Don’t ask me why – maybe she thinks she is doing a good job of eating or drinking or something. Still an endearing quirk.
