My Experiences - At Least Some of Them !!

My New Home

I came to my first house when I was 10 weeks old. It was a nice English tudor with lots of room for all of us. I liked the house a lot - I knew every nook and cranny and I also had a lot of friends on the block. I played with Ritzie the dachshund, Bonnie and Clyde, the two Maltese and the springer spaniel. We all had a nice time on the block. Then one day I overhead my mom and dad talking about moving to a new house !! I was terrified. What if I didn't like it? What if I couldn't make new friends?

Well I am now in my new house for about two months and I like it BETTER than my old house. In my old house my bedroom was shared with my dad's office - now I have my OWN bedroom and dad has his OWN office. It's a great setup. The new house is bigger than the old one - I can play ball and play with all of my toys. I have also made a lot of good friends here. Down the street is Teddie the schnoodle. There are a couple of spaniels called Chloe and Baci. I also like a Wheaton terrier named Kobe and across the street is a big lab named Scoobie. Life is really great in this neighborhood.

I am so glad we moved. I really love my new house, my new neighbors and my new friends. Thanks mom and dad for moving me.


Hello From Sunny Florida

I spoke to my mom today and learned that it is 29 degrees in New York. I am pretty happy about this since my dad took me to Florida to visit friends. We flew out of NY on Sunday when it was snowing and arrived in Fort Lauderdale where the temperature was in the high 70s. What a nice change. Just last week, every time I had to go out for a poop, my dad had to put on my coat since it was so cold. Now here in Florida, we just go out and have a lot of fun. We played ball before and had a good time. Yesterday my dad took me into his friend's swimming pool, but quite honestly, I didn't like it very much. Any way I am here until next Friday, so I am going to enjoy every minute of the nice weather because I know I have a long cold winter in front of me.


My First Boat Ride

Yesterday was Labor Day and it was a beautiful day in New York. My mom and dad took me to Central Park so that we could walk around and see all the other people who were also walking their dogs. But then we came to the lake in the middle of Central Park and my dad thought it would be a good idea to take a row boat out into the lake. So we climbed in and although it was a bit shaky at first, I got my sea legs and really enjoyed being on the lake. It was really great since I didn't have to row - all I did was sit in the boat and enjoy the view. We stayed on the water about an hour and then came back and enjoyed a nice lunch at the Boat House Restaurant. They wouldn't let me in - can you believe it ?? - but they did let us eat outdoors so we had a nice lunch. Well my mom and dad had a nice lunch. But I had a nice Greenie and some cool fresh water, so I was pretty happy. My hope is to go boat riding another time.

I had such a great day today !! My dad took me to the monthly schnauzer meet-up at Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village this morning. There were about ten other schnauzers there and it was really great to play with them. We played ball, but mostly we just ran around and acted like dogs. It was really nice to play with other schnauzers since there are none like me in my neighborhood. I am really glad my dad found this nice group for me to play with. If you live in or near New York City and want to know more about this group and to perhaps play with me next month, please write to me and my dad will tell you all about it. Bye for now.


Leavin' On a Jet Plane

I just recently came back to New York from Denver, Colorado. It was a lot of fun flying on the big jet plane. This was my third round trip flight - the first between New York and Denver and the second between New York and Los Angeles. I am getting to be an old pro at flying. It's a bit cramped in my sherpa bag, but when I am snuggly placed under the seat in front of my dad and after the plane has lifted off the ground, he usually pulls the bag out and opens the top a bit.

The best part is that during the flight I keep getting little pieces of kibble snacks to keep me happy. He also gives me small amounts of water to drink.

I really enjoy flying and hope that we will go somewhere again.

In the airport while waiting to get on the plane, my dad keeps me out of the bag and I have a chance to meet lots and lots of nice people. They come over to pet me and say hello. It might be fun to be a celebrity of sorts.


Some "food for thought" quotations about we dogs

My daddy thinks I am great and he has found a number of neat quotations that some famous and not-so famous people have uttered about dogs. They may not wind up in Bartlett's "Familiar Quotations", but I think they are pretty cool, so I thought I would enter them in my diary for all to share:

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue. -Anonymous

Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful. -Ann Landers

If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went. -Will Rogers

There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face. -Ben Williams

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.
-Josh Billings

The average dog is a nicer person than the average person. -Andy Rooney

We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare. And in return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made. -M. Acklam

Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love and always have to mix love and hate.
-Sigmund Freud

A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance, and to turn around three times before lying down. -Robert Benchley

Anybody who doesn't know what soap tastes like never washed a dog. -Franklin P. Jones

If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have
known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons. -James Thurber

If your dog is fat, you aren't getting enough exercise. -Unknown

My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to $3.00 a can. That's almost $21.00 in dog money. -Joe Weinstein

Ever consider what our dogs must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul -- chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth! -Anne Tyler

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man. -Mark Twain

You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, 'Wow, you're right! I never would've thought of that!'
- Dave Barry

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole. -Roger Caras

If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them. -Phil Pastoret

The more I know people, the better I like my dog! -Anonymous


A Day of Culture

Today my mom and dad drove me into New York City. We were really lucky and found street parking off the corner of Fifth Avenue and 90th Street. Why were we there? We visited Central Park to see the very well publicized GATES PROJECT of Christo and Jeanne-Claude. It was everything that the TV and radio news reported. How incredible to see thousands of saffron-colored poles and drapes covering so many of Central Park's pathways and walking areas.

I am not a terrific art critic, so I would say it was more of a fantastic "event" than "art", but who am I to say, we miniature schnauzers don't get to the museums that often.

We walked around for a couple of hours and I met lots and lots of other dogs who were also enjoying the art exhibition. I didn't see a single schnauzer, but there were lots of pugs, retrievers and labs. They were all pretty nice to me except one Jack Russell terrier who growled a lot. I had a great day - the temperature in NY was almost 60 degrees today, so we had a nice break from winter as well.
