I took a ride to the vet with mom while she dropped off poop samples for everyone! I'm feeling better so I didn't have to see the vet. But now Molly's having problems, so mom said everyone's poop is getting checked. She should call these the poop chronicles since that's all she talks about anymore...

Anyway, while we were driving mom had to stop for a red light. The window was open just a crack & I was sniffing the air. Suddenly two fire engines with sirens went by. I stuck my mouth up to the opened window and started howling...Aaarrrooooooo! Some guy on a bicycle started laughing, and so did mom. I was just doing my civic duty and helping our firemen, sheesh!

Dad said he wants to get a video of me doing that. I wonder if we're going to go fire truck or ambulance chasing...BOL!!! That would be pawsome...oops sorry mom - I will not chase a truck or ambulance, ever!

I'm not feeling very well. Mom doesn't know what's going on with us dogs. Georgie's all better now. Now I'm have some tummy upset. Yesterday I didn't eat anything except a couple bites of chicken. Mom had to work all day & didn't get a look at my poop, she thinks that I probably have something going on there. But when Paula walked me during the day & mom walked me at night, I didn't have any! Probably since I wasn't eating; she wasn't suspecting a bowel obstruction or anything because I'm not in pain. But today mom gave me chicken & rice for breakfast & dinner and I ate it all up. Tomorrow she says she'll see if I need to go to the vet too - yuck. It's almost my birthday and I don't want to be sick! I won't get my extra treats.

Next week dad is off for a full week. I like it when he's home with us. And on Thursday we go to the BEACH again - woo hoo! I'll get to see my schnauzer pals Mason & Rascal again, and introduce Winston to them. If we don't turn into a pack, we should have a lot of fun. I can't wait. Definately going to be a 5 tail wagger~~~



Tail Wag days and moments

Lately I've only been have 3 tail wag days. First it's been raining for a week. Last week we had a rain storm with 65 mph winds and the power was out. The house was really shaking. Mom put raincoats on us and we walked in the rain when it lightened up a little. It's been fun sniffing all the downed branches in the neighborhood. It's like all those squirrels that usually are up in the trees left their scent for me.

But it's been raining every day. And my sister Georgie has been sick. So mom spends most of her time taking care of her. I'm glad she does cuz I know if I was sick she'd take care of me like that. Georgie is getting better so that's a 4 tail wag!!!

But I met my human brother & sister this week. They're home from college. It's been a lot of fun playing with them and getting lots of hugs. They have a lot of friends so every day we meet someone new. Those are all 4 tail wag moments!

It's supposed to stop raining this weekend so hopefully it'll be more fun outside. The human sibs go home on Saturday. We'll miss them - 3 tail wags.

It's only 9 days until my birthday - I'm hoping for a 5 tail wag day!!!!!



4 tail wag day today

I've decided to rate my days according to tail (tale?) wags:
1 tail wag: I didn't want to get out of bed today, but mom gave me a good morning hug
2 tail wags: I got out of bed today, got a morning hug, and food was ok
3 tail wags: I got out of bed, got a morning hug, food was good, play was fun
4 tail wags: I got out of bed, got a morning hug, food was good, play was fun and something special happened
5 tail wags: All of the above, and I got to do one of my most favorite things.

Today was a 4 tail wag day: All of the usual happened, but mom & dad were home today unexpectedly. Paula came and walked us today as usual. Definately a 4 tail wag day getting lots of extra attention. There was a squirrel teasing me in a tree. Mom picked me up and held me high up on the tree so I could see the squirrel almost eye to eye!!! I got so excited having this view!!! That squirrel got scared and ran away. BOL, BOL. That was extra fun.

This was my first Christmas in my new home and it was a lot of fun!!! Mom & dad had a lot of presents for all of us. Paula, our dog walker, also had stacks. We got to open them up. There were enough for everybody so we didn't have to fight over them!!! We all got new sweaters for when we go to the beach later this next month, and the girls got tee shirts too (girly stuff). We had special treats, and went for walks. We wrestled and played with our toys, watched movies with mom. Just had a great time!!! WOOHOO - Merry Schnauzmas everyone.



*'Twas The Night Before Christmas* ... Schnauzmas that is!!!

*'Twas The Night Before Christmas*

'Twas The Night Before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a schnauzer was stirring, not even a mauz(er);
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Milly soon would be there;
The Six Pack were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of chew bones danced in their heads;
And Lacey in her blankie, and Greta Grace in her cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap,
When out in the dog yard there arose such a clatter,
They sprang from the beds to see what was the matter.
Away to the window they flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the Northeastern snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to their wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny schnauzdeer,
With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
They knew in a moment it must be Milly, what a kick!
Smooth as velvet, the Schnauzers Rule gang came,
And she whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
"Now, Samson! now, Buddy! now Murphy, and Finn!
On, Callye! on Charley! on Duncan! and Winn!
To the top of the fence! to the top of the wall!
Now prance away! prance away! prance away all!"
As effortlessly as our agility champs fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, they take to the sky,
So up to the dog-house the schnauzdeer they flew,
With the sleigh full of dog bones and Shakespeare, too.
And then, in a twinkling, Rudy heard on the roof
The woo-ing and roo-ing of each little hound.
As she drew in her hand, and was turning around,
Down the chimney Milly came with a bound.
She was dressed all in fur, from her head to her foot,
And her clothes were all tarnished with dog poo and soot;
A bundle of squeaky toys she had flung on her back,
And she looked like a dog trainer just opening her pack.
Her eyes -- how they twinkled! her dimples, how merry!
Her cheeks were like roses, her nose like a cherry!
Her smart little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the hair on her eyebrows were white as the snow;
The end of a leash she held tight in her teeth,
But the rest of it encircled her head like a wreath;
She had a sweet little face and a small little belly,
That shook, when she laughed like a bowlful of jelly.
She was smilin’ and whistlin’, a right jolly old elf,
And we laughed when we saw her, in spite of ourselves;
A wink of her eye and a twist of her head,
Soon Tot & Georgie knew there was nothing to dread;
She spoke not a word, but went straight to her work,
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,
And laying her finger aside of her nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney she rose;
She sprang to her sleigh, to her schnauzdeer gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard her exclaim, ere she drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.
Roo-Roo, Roo-Roo, Roo-Roo, and A-Roo!”

Happy Holidays Everyone from my family to yours!

Yesterday on my walk with mom, I came face to face with a live squirrel!!! It was laying on the ground at the bottom of a tree. It was holding really still. I was so surprised. I sniffed it once and it didn't move, I sniffed it again and it still didn't move. Then I made the fatal mistake - I looked at mom saying "Do you see the squirrel????? " It gave her just enough time to pull on the leash and yell "Come here!" I automatically turned & ran to mom (she says I'm such a good boy!). But then she wouldn't let me back to the squirrel. We had to walk past it really fast with mom saying "Leave it!". Darn, next time I won't let mom know.


ps Mom walked Winston by there later on, and the squirrel was up in the tree clucking at her, so he was alive and well!


Almost Halloween!

The Schnauzers Rule halloween costume contest has been a lot of fun. We have a lot of great entries, and the voting is on. Can't wait to see who wins.

Kiki & Tot's mom did a LOT of photoshop pics for a lot of pups - they're the coolest! We couldn't have done it without her. She did one for me, Winston and Georgie. And she did a Super Woman one for Georgie when she got out of the hospital.

We're all just glad to be home together for Halloween. Happy Halloween everybody!

I was tagged by Sassy

Here are the rules of this dogster game of "tag" . When you are tagged, you post 7 random facts about yourself, compose a "new DIARY entry" along with the rules and put them in your own DIARY. Then you pick 7 furs (kitties or doggies) to tag but make sure you tell them... a simple p-mail will do fine, or a rosette to tell them, but you must let them know that they have been tagged. Post their names also in your DIARY.

Here are 7 random facts about myself:

I love to be chased.

I was an only pup but since mom got me I've had 2 sisters (Georgie & Molly) and a brother (Winston).

I have 2 parrots in my house that say "Finn, stop that!".

I can jump over agility bars for fun.

I like playing with my new brother Winston.

I love our 3 cats and they let me give them kisses.

I love to hug my mom.

The 7 pups I'm tagging are:
Sugarbear in Colorado
Twickie in Singapore
Sophie Belle Patterpaw
Casey in Nile, MI
Shiyan in Canada
Jack in Australia
Drover in Blackfoot ID
