ATTENTION. It's better than food to her. Also treats... mmm, peanut butter. Playing or going for walks.
having to go outside in the rain, big dogs, kids who yank her around
any of her squeaky toys, but especially if one of her people is trying to pick it up!
dog food, or whatever you're eating is probably REALLY GOOD
Around the neighborhood
she can 'sit up' on her hind legs FOREVER. It's her favorite method of getting what she wants, be it love or a treat.
My aunt who breeds and shows Dalmatians brought her to us--Liza, whose name was originally Iza-- was being shown, but was just finishing up her run (she didn't do too well due to being a SPAZ and not taking directions in the ring). She was slated to be a pet, since she's a runt! and too small to ever breed. At the time we had an older Schip, a rescue named Catfish, and we knew we wanted another one! Schips all the way.
I believe Liza is turning five this year... it's hard to tell she's any older than a puppy because she's so small and so energetic. She just... goes and goes and goes. Where people are concerned, you will never meet a friendlier dog . She loves absolutely everyone and believes that they all want nothing more than to give her a tummy rub. Even my dog hating friends have been forced to admit that she's cute, if a little overenthusiastic. They nicknamed her "drive-by" due to her habit of running up to visitors, flinging herself at their legs in a frenzy of excitement, and then scarpering at top speed to her next adventure. Where other dogs are concerned, she has absolutely NO MANNERS AT ALL. Particularly if the dog is bigger than she is: she is afflicted with what we call the small dog's Napoleon Complex. With a dog her size or smaller, she eventually settles down and gets along: she absolutely loves my friend's Chihuahua, Lucy.
Liza also is a great example of the things I like best about Schipperkes: they are playful, active, intelligent dogs who are extremely loyal to, protective of, and affectionate to "their people", and who also like to... push the envelope. They're a little bit insubordinate; they like to test you. A little 'tude is a good thing! Not to mention the extreme love of belly rubs. It is astonishing the lengths these guys will go to for scritches. :)
You know you want to pet me- now's good.
