Quick Bio:

Walks and vacations

Being left home when the parents go out.

Favorite Toy:
Finn loves Pink Bear, Winston likes balls, Lily has a stuffed monkey that is her baby. NeeNee doesn't like toys!

Favorite Food:
Treats! Finn likes scrambled eggs for breakfast. NeeNee likes In n Out Burger patties.

Favorite Walk:
We live in a rural area, so we walk on roads through the woods.

Arrival Story:
Finnegan, a schnauzer, joined us first at 2 years of age, after our schnauzer Annie went to the bridge. We also had 2 senior females (a schnauzer & a shihtzu) at the time. So we brought home Winston (another schnauzer) at age 3 to play with Finnegan. After our senior shihtzu Molly went to the bridge, we got NeeNee a 5 year old shihtzu. After the senior schnauzer Georgie also went to the bridge, we got shihtzu Lily at 18 months. Three of them are owner surrenders (rehomed as we like to call it), and NeeNee is a rescue from a puppy mill.

Our pals Fritz & Ripley's dad is in the hospital. Mom is so worried about him! Their dad is one of her first friends from Dogster and they have kept in touch with us for years. Their dad had a fall on his bicycle and kept getting dizzy. Now he's going to have surgery tomorrow. One of his friends is looking after Fritz & Ripley, who have probably never been away from their dad.

We're putting all our paws together, and sending our angel sisters Georgie, Annie & Molly to look after their dad & to keep Angel Charley (their angel schnauzer brother) company.

POP for dad Fred! Angel kisses all around.

Change in Seasons

Well, we've almost been here in Oregon for a full year! This time last year, mom & dad were buying our new house and packing up the old house. Summer was a lot of fun. We didn't make any long trips, but every trip around here is fun!!! We get to walk off leash (except for Lily hehe) on gravel roads, smelling all the deer and wild animals. Our summer neighbors are here, and we LOVE them!!!! Jack loves us, gives us treats and let's us run all over his property. He's taught mom how to relax and to trust us a little more. We usually chase chipmunks and birds at his house, and try to corner them under their house. At our house, we can run from the front yard to the backyard, lounge in the sun on the deck, and go out to the rest of our property (if mom & dad are with us).

Mom grows lots of different kinds of berries, and we've learned to eat them off the bush. Dad has the garden fenced off, so we don't get to pick good stuff like carrots. But Mom & Dad eat lots of fresh veggies so we get lots of extra treats! We started on raw food and we LOVE it, that is everyone except Lily. She has a sensitive stomach. Our weight and coats look great. We get more raw bones since we're outside a lot more. Our teeth are looking good. Also, we recently tried some Icelandic fish skin treats that are real stinky & real good. Mom has been trying all kinds of different things with us!

We haven't gone to the beach a lot cuz mom hurt both of her knees. She may get surgery soon, so then we'll get to go lots. NeeNee has been doing great after her big surgery last year - no problems at all. She's going back to see her doctors soon just for a check up.

The season is beginning to change. We've had sun & 80 degrees at our house for 3 months. The fog & wind are coming in and it's cooler at night. Soon it'll be raining again. We all have our sweaters & rain coats ready. We don't let the rain get in our way. And mom has new mats & soggy dog mats/towels so she's happy.

Life is good! This has been a good move for us!


Hanging out at home!

Last week we had another week without rain. Mom & NeeNee were away on a trip to California. She said she remained spoiled the whole time by all of the relatives! Good girl, gotta work the relatives. We were home with Dad. He always let's us run in and out of the house, and since he was planting the garden in raised beds, he let us run around the garden too! We discovered gophers and have been digging at them in mom's flower garden BOL! Dad wasn't too happy with that but we get away with it sometimes. One day a cat jumped into our backyard where all 3 of us were hanging out. That cat had to fight it's way out of there, but we won by chasing it away and only getting a few scratches. Mom wouldn't have been happy with us if she had been home!

Our across the road neighbors came home from their winter house. A cute lil bichon named Angie lives there. She came over to our house to visit one day. She has never been on a leash. She has a doggie door and can go in & out as much as she wants. She often sleeps on the porch!!! The best thing is that she leaves her treats around their yard, so it's like an Easter egg hunt. We like visiting Angie.

We also were sneaking out of the yard BOL!!! Dad didn't know it, but when he mowed the lawn in the front yard, he damaged the fencing and we were able to squeeze through a hole. But when Uncle came to visit and they were working out in the garage on motorcycles, we couldn't hold back! We gave ourselves away by showing up in the garage. So he patched it, or thought he did! hehehe!

Mom came home and Dad took off on a 3 day motorcycle trip. Winston was sick and the vet said he ate something bad, so he had to go on medicine. Then, a couple days later mom kept finding Winston & Lily outside of the yard. She spent hours looking for the places where we could escape but every time she turned her back, we'd escape again!!! Finally, mom said to Lily "where are you getting out?!" Lily went right up to the fence and bit it. It was where Dad had patched the fence but it didn't look like there were any openings. So she got smart and went around to the outside where Lily was standing and found the big hole! After patching it, she tried to round us up. After a game of chasing each other and running circles around Mom, she was able to get us back into the yard.

Well, the Fearless Four are maintaining their reputations as a feisty pack. We try to make life an adventure! Let's see what else we can get into!!!
