Pepe Le PeeYew!!!!

I got skunked last night! I smelled something awful & heard some noise behind the guest house. Mom saw me take off across the yard & called but I didn't listen. Next thing she heard was that crazy bark & squeal that only a schnauzer can let out. So mom runs out screaming my name, Molly runs out after me barking, dad runs out and mom's screaming to him, so I run back to see what's going on!!! Then the skunk comes around the corner, tail raised high stamping his feet, coming right at my dad. Mom gets us dogs in the house and picks me up with that special perfume wafting off of me. Meanwhile, Georgie is watching us from the dining room windows.

Mom used the mixture of peroxide, baking soda & liquid soap and I'm pretty odor free now. However, I'd say Pepe Le Pew won this round....

My new nickname: Stinky Boy!!! The indignity...I was just guarding the homestead...


Swimming - Day 2

Well, mom got me a life jacket. It actually kept me upright so I could swim. I only did it a couple of times, mom doesn't want to stress me out. But I swam 1/2 way across the pool with dad walking in front of me - very cool! I always keep the steps in my view just in case!!! That's the first thing I learned. Maybe I'll get more brave at swimming if we keep this up!

Mom & dad laughed because a towel was hanging over a chair. I went up & rubbed my head & back on it - hehehe

A lot of schnauzers in Schnauzer's Rule have posted that they HATE water. Georgie doesn't like it, but she likes to sit with mom on the steps or float on a raft so she doesn't mind. She doesn't like swimming if she doesn't have to. Mom said Annie was the same. Mom also said both Georgie & Annie would jump into ponds in Florida to chase birds & were good swimmers. I guess it just takes motivation. But there are 2 schnauzers, Bella & Emmy, who love to swim & go every weekend. They would be motivation! I wish dad's old golden retriever Boomer still was with us - he'd teach me how to swim better!


Swimming! Fireworks!

I went swimming for the first time today, at least at my new house. Mom doesn't know if I've ever been swimming before. First I sat on the steps with dad, then mom, then I got onto a raft with mom and floated around. That was really cool. Then dad held me in the water so I could swim. I started out looking like a shrimp using my front legs and my back ones hanging down. But eventually I figured it out. However I am a terrier - I like terra firma! I prefer to run around the pool. But when mom is in the pool I want to be with her. She's going to get a firmer raft for me. She saw a video of a miniature schnauzer swimming in a pool with a lifejacket, so she wants to try that too. We'll see!!!! But I trust mom alot. Georgie got in the pool too, but Molly wouldn't come near it - her legs are too short for swimming - BOL!

Another thing that happened today is that I heard fireworks. They were only 1 mile away and sounded so loud. At first I ran around the house cuz I thought someone was trying to break in!!! But mom had me sit next to her & everything was ok. I got used to it.

Whew, exciting day. I'm sleepy now....zzzzzzzzzzzzz
