what a great Christmas!

I have had so much fun at Schnauzers Rule group this year! Christmas was especially good, we sang songs, played games, and had great chats over the forums. We had a Christmas card exchange, and I got *way* more cards than Mommy or Mama. Mommy even made a whole scrapbook page that holds my Christmas cards in an envelope! The holidays were a lot of fun. Finnegan made a great "12 Days of Schnauzmas" song, you just have to read it. I'm in it! See it here: 6

Nanny Hutchings came and stayed for a few days, and I have visited Nanny and Poppy Moore too. It's always great to see my cousin Sonny, even though he's like 80 lbs. heavier than me!

I got some great loot for Christmas, as you can see in my stocking picture above. I got a new fleecy blanket that is in Christmas plaid colours, and it is so soft. I love to lie on it. I got lots of new toys and some treats too, including bully sticks. I *love* bully sticks!

There is a lot of snow here these days, and for awhile I refused to go potty in it, because it was too darn cold! Mommy was at her wit's end, because I would "hold it" and then demand to go out at 5:30 a.m.! Luckily I gave that up!

Hope everyone has a great year in 2008. I hope it is as good as 2007. I am a very blessed pup to have such great friends through Dogster. Thank you to the higher power for letting Tater Tot get better. And sending hugs to all the pups at Rainbow Bridge whose time it was. I love you all!



I got my Christmas cards!

I am so happy, mommy got my photo Christmas cards today, from Shutterfly! She is really pleased with them. I am going to send cards to my friends in Only Pups and Schnauzers Rule! They are so beautiful!

In other news, it is getting really cold here. Mommy makes me wear my coat every day. This morning we had snow on the ground, but I didn't wear my new booties, because Mommy hasn't taken them out of the package yet! Sheesh! We went out on a great walk, but I had to get a foot bath to get my tootsies warm and cleaned. I really hate water, and getting baths. Apparently most schnauzers hate water. I have to get bribed to get in the bath. Usually I get a yummy AKC liver treat that mommy gets from Walmart. I suppose I'll put up with it for one of those!

I hope all my American friends have a fabulous Thanksgiving Holiday!

talk to you soon!
love Rudy


Thanksgiving Tag!

My pal Sydney tagged me! I'm thankful that she did, BOL!

Here are the rules:
Because it’s Thanksgiving time, there is a change to the rules. Each player needs to tell seven special things they are thankful for. Tagged dogs must post the rules in their diary and their 7 things. Then choose 7 pups to tag and list their names. Let them know by pawmail or rosette that they have been tagged and to read your diary for the instructions on how to play.

Seven Things I’m Thankful For:

1. I’m thankful that there are people like Sydney's mom and Maddie's mom who adopt doggies at shelters.
2. I’m thankful for my mommy who makes sure I don't get cold by getting me sweaters, coats and fleecys to wear in the winter.
3. I’m thankful for mama who plays "rough" with me - I love it!
4. I’m thankful for doggie day care where I can play with other dogs once a week (I'm an only pup, BOL!)
5. I’m thankful for yummy home made treats that mommy makes me (yum for real cheese and bacon biscuits)
6. I’m thankful for all the friends mommy has made on Dogster and in particular in the groups Only Pups and Schnauzers Rule!
7. I’m thankful that mommy and mama decided to get me, because we make a great family!

have fun guys and gals!


Back to school

I love my nanny Hutchings. She plays with me, and cuddles me and smoothes down my fur. It's great. She comes to visit once a month or so, for the WHOLE weekend. Sometimes I go to her house too, but I like it better in my house, because I have all my toys here!

Mommy said something about starting school again, and that I would have to spend more time in my crate. It's an injustice I tell you! I can't believe they don't let me roam the house when they're gone. I wouldn't chew anything up! I would stand guard, like the good schnauzer I am! Mommy says I bark too much out the window and that I will annoy the neighbours. Poo on that. Anyhoo, I am only crated for 3 hours at a time now. Do you think an increase of an hour will be bad? Will I get bored? Will I probably just sleep? Mommy needs some reassurance. See she's starting her thesis and she needs lots of time to write. She is trying to figure out a schedule that will allow her time to work, but that won't guilt her (cause she's thinking of me in the crate).

So, fellow pups, this I ask. How does this schedule sound? Mommy knows she is being paranoid, but she loves me so much, and she wants me to have a good life. Yet, if she doesn't finish her thesis, she'll go crazy. She figures she needs 5-6 hours a day of work. This would work if she actually wrote from 9-12, and 2-4 p.m.

7:30 a.m. Get up. Go outside.
8:00 a.m. eat breakfast.
8:10-8:45 play.
9:00 a.m. go in crate
12:00-1:00 p.m. Mommy comes home, lets me out.

1:00 - 2:00 Walk outside. Play. Bark out window.
2:00 p.m. Go back in crate
5:30 p.m. Mommy works at home, I am in crate.
5:30 p.m. Freedom again.
6:00 p.m. Supper and nighttime walk, play.
10:00 p.m. Cuddle with moms.

Please advise! If this is too harsh, I will inform mommy immediately!
love Rudy


Summer Tagged!

I’ve been summer tagged by my pal Montgomery!

Here are the rules for the game. Make a diary entry giving 5 pawsome facts about yourself. Choose 5 pals to tag and list them last. Post the rules of the game. Send your pals a paw mail or rosette letting them know they have been tagged to play the game.

- I love to eat. I guess every dog does. I especially like human food like cheese, chicken and popcorn (in very small quanitites!)

- I love to play fetch with all my toys

- I despise when mommy swiffers/sweeps, I growl and try to go for that mean stick that's hurting her!!! I usually get put in the crate for this.

- I can be a bit bad. When mommy gets ready to take me on a walk, I nip at her sneakers when she's trying to put them on! Mommy says "we're working on that!" Humph. I am just excited!

- I get two walks a day, at half an hour each. Sometimes longer!

I'm back from vacation!

Holy moly, what a great time I had! My two moms took me to Traytown and Terra Nova National Park in Newfoundland, for five nights. We stayed in a really neat cabin, and I got to do all sorts of neat things, like canoe, go on nature walks in the woods, and see all sorts of other dogs whose owners were on vacation too. See, the mommies would only go to a place that allowed dogs, so I was in good company, there was an Airedale doggie, a basset hound, a few golden retrievers, and some other doggies too. It was the best. We all got to smell each other, and because it was a campground type area, there was lots to sniff: trees, woods, a playground, a mini golf station, and who could forget the nearby wildlife! I saw lots of birds and a bunny, and I think I even smelled a moose! Mommy Sarah and Mama Deb took me on TONS of walks. It was the best trip ever.

One thing that I did that was the coolest was get to go in a canoe! We got a canoe at Sandy Pond in Terra Nova, and I even got to wear a special lifejacket (for some reason, the mommies don't believe I could swim!). I felt really safe next to Mama Deb, and mommy Sarah was even good enough to get some photos. The park staff thought I was really cute too.

It was really hot weather the whole time! I have never felt such heat! Mommy Sarah said it was 30 C, with a humidex of 36 C on two of the days. I had lots of naps on those days.

All in all, it was a super vacation for me. I am so lucky to have moms who take me everywhere! I'm glad to be back though, in my own home, where I can bark at all the passerbys through the window, and read up on my friends at Dogster whenever I want!

love Rudy


I was love-tagged!

Doolin, my boyfriend from the U.S. love-tagged me! (blush) He said I was a nice doggie! The rules of the game is that when you get love-tagged, you get a message from a doggie saying what they like about you! Then it's your turn, you have to tag three doggies/kitties that you think are great, and why! You can send a message or a rosette, or both!

Have Fun!
Bark to you later, Rudy


I have such a great life!

You know, my mommies love me so much. I thought I would take the time to write and say how happy I am that they give me such a nice home. I know I am more fortunate than lots of other puppies and doggies who are in shelters, and it makes me sad to think about them. But I am so happy that my two moms chose me as theirs. I have a nice bed to sleep on, and two fantastic nans who cuddle me whenever I am visiting. I get yummy chicken with my kibble for every meal. They make sure I go to the vet every year to get a checkup, plus whenever anything goes wrong. I go to the groomer every 6 weeks so I can look pretty. They comb my fur out so I don't get tangles. They walk me every day. I get to go lots of places that are exciting, like seeing icebergs, or going to Cape Spear. I even get to go on Nature Walks at Kent's Pond, or on the barrens in Portugal Cove with my dogsitter Jill. I get to go to Doggie Country Camp with my pal Jason and all the other doggies, Ruxie, Connor, Harold & Eric, and Sammy. I have a great giant cousin, Sonny, who likes me. I have a Poppy who gives me excellent belly rubs.

I love my life, mommies. Thank you for getting me.

love Rudy


I'm ONE!

Hi everypup!

I am one year old! I had an awesome weekend of fun and playing and treats, all because of this thing they call "birthday!" I'm not sure what it means, but they kept saying "one" and "good puppy" and giving me prezzies! I got a new tennis ball/football, and a purple mouse toy. The ball squeaks and bounces, it's really cool and mommy Sarah gave it to me. Auntie Jill gave me the purple mouse and it squeaks. I've already torn the stuffing out of it and now mommy Sarah has to perform surgery on it so I can play with it some more. Mama Deb gave me some bully sticks which I love!

But you know what was the best part? I had a birthday party! Can you believe it? Mommy Sarah made up homemade scrapbooked invitations and invited all my favorite people over - Auntie Jill and Uncle Ed, Aunt Sue and Uncle Adam, Nanny and Poppy. It was great! I got to play and run around and eat homemade bacon biscuits that mommy Sarah made for me. Then Uncle Adam took me for a walk. It was the best day ever. If this is what a birthday is about, then I'm all for it!

Thank you everypuppy for the sweet rosettes and stars and birthday wishes. I love them all so much. You all mean so much to me. Oh dear, mommy's getting verklempt again. Silly mommy cries too much - she's so sentimental!

I hope everydoggie is having a good spring. It is rainy here and full of mud. Summer doesn't start until June around here, so it's still kind of cold and damp. That's what Newfoundland is like! At least mommy takes me on walks every day no matter what. I love her so much!

bark to you all soon. Love you all!


Wow, I was tagged!

Lovely Miss Annie, Kiki and Buckie tagged me.

Here are the rules:

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

So here are 7 fun facts about Rudy....
1) I love yogourt, and often share a small container with my mommy. I eat all kinds, vanilla, plain, raspberry, peach. I especially like the probiotic kind.

2) My dog trainer Chris calls me "little girl."

3) I have perfected the art of barking at possible intruders (really just normal people walking up the street) while standing on my hind legs, looking out the front bay window.

4) If I'm in the jeep, I like to try to climb on top of mommy when she's driving. It's distracting, so she either belts me in or takes me in her lap so I can co-drive.

5) I have a little morning routine, where I get up, eat my breakfast, go outside, have a play, and then have a morning nap, all within an hour.

Okay, I tag:


I'll be watching for your posts! Tee hee, this is fun!
