Gettin' All Emo

So I do this thing with my sister Lexie where I get in her face and start to Arrroooo and growl and jump around. Lexie either a) freezes, b) hides behind Mom, or c) growls back and yaps at me really loudly. Sometimes she does all three of them in quick succession. I think I'm just ready to play, but Mom can't really tell. Lexie doesn't seem like she's enjoying it. It seems like she's really mad at me or getting all emo on me or something. Mom says she's going to try to use her camera on video mode and capture this behavior so all the Dogster dogs can analyze it and figure out what's really going on between me and my new sister. If that doesn't work, Mom says she's going to have to find a shrink. I think a shrink must be like a shrimp, and those taste really good, so it can't be a bad thing. I bet I'd like a shrink or two.

Do we really hate each other? Does Lexie resent me and want to tear me limb from limb? Am I being too aggressive or assertive in the face of her earned, yet not totally claimed dominance? What are you yapping about, Mom? What she really wants is for someone named Cesar Millan to show up in our yard and make it all good. Who is this Millan guy, and does he reward with shrinks? I know - I'll take a nap. When I wake up, all of this will be gone.


Foiled . . . For Now!

The kid showed Mom my escape hole and Mom crawled deep into the bushes and brush by the neighbor's garage and put a big rock in front of my hole. I immediately went over to investigate and got chided by Mom. Sigh. Oh, well. We had a great walk tonight and there's always breakfast tomorrow, and then dinner . . . and then breakfast the next day, and then dinner . . . and then . . .

I am so in trouble. I have been getting out of our fenced yard. One of the kids did her own perimeter check today and found my special spot where I dug a little trench under the fence. She went around to the other side to investigate the gap, and that's when I unwittingly showed up on the home side to make another run for it. Oh, did I feel guilty when my nose popped out the other side and came face to muzzle with the kid! Caught red-pawed! Now they know I can dig, how will they ever keep me in the yard?


Movin' Too Fast to Feel the Chill

Lexie says the AC is going bonkers and that's why it was so cold in our bedroom this afternoon. I didn't notice because I don't often slow down enough to cool off. Then when I do, I usually just collapse and fall asleep too fast to notice where I am or what's going on. Anyway, Lexie said that Mom said there are bugs in the AC. I keep remembering that night on the lawn last week when all those moths were flying around. Chasing them was tons of fun, so I hope I get to meet the buggers in the AC. I could have a ball with them!


Who, Me?

Another poopy package in the living room, you say? Me? Well, I would never own up to that. I just couldn't say. Just because I'm young and new, they blame everything on me. Maybe big sis has some PTSD going on - Post Traumatic Sibling Disorder - you know, no longer being the spoiled only child? Stop looking at me that way. I like it here, and I want to stay! Remember, I was the one who pooped on our walk the night before. Okay, Lexie did too, but hers was smaller than mine. That can only mean she did it because she had more left inside to get rid of. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.


I Passed My Thunderstorm Test!

Lexie says I passed my thunderstorm test last night because I slept through the whole thing. She tells me some dogs freak out at loud noises like thunderstorms, but I didn't even notice it. Those things don't bother me. She tells me to wait until the kids go off to school in a few weeks and then all bring home more newfangled musical instruments and start trying to learn to play them. That will be Loud Noises Test, Part II. I have no fear. I put up with Lexie's loud (incessant?) barking, don't I?


Doorbell, Doorbell?

What's wrong with an extra doorbell? I thought it was kinda fun to hear that sad, sad sound coming out of the walls. Everyone laughed when it first went off. Lexie was miffed, as she so often is, because she has always taken pride in alerting the household to any movement, sound or smell within 500 yards of the place. I just think it's a lot of fun, having more silly songs in the house to dance to. The folks here are learning that I am quite a hot dancer. I can imitate a bi-ped like the best of them!


Yes, I am Your Buddy!

It was so fun last night. We had house guests: two parents with their three big boys. I was so excited to meet them that I ran at the couch and jumped right up on them! Mom didn't like that. She said it was bad manners, but I heard the kids laughing. They gave me lots of attention. In fact, one of them said, "Hey Buddy, what's your name?" Then he read my special blue bone-shaped tag where it says "Buddy." They all thought that was really funny. Oh, it was a grand time!


Not Amused

My sister is so not amused. She just found out that the sign Mom bought yesterday at the State Fair (Caution: Area protected by Schnauzer Security Co.) does not mean Mom has hired professionals to guard us, her prized furry children. No, actually it means that we are supposed to be doing the job ourselves! Well, I thought it was kinda neat. I mean, I can be pretty tough, ya know. I can't bark as loudly or as meanly (or as long) as Lexie, but I know how to chew on things. I don't know if I could actually chew on a human. That just doesn't seem right. Maybe if they were trying to hurt Lexie, one of the human kids or Mom and Dad. Then I think I could make myself do it. Well, maybe. I could lick them profusely and make them trip by zig-zagging continuously in front of them. Mom knows I'm good at that.

Lexie had to swallow her pride a bit when she realized this meant work for her to do, instead of a celebrity body guard service working for her. I know I say this way too often lately, but WOMEN! Get over it, sister. You've always been the best watchdog anyway. Like any professional could do the job better than you already do!


Mom and Dad Came Back!

Lexie kept telling me not to freak out when Mom and Dad and all the kids left this morning without us. She said it happens all the time, but after what I've been through in recent months, all that shuffling around, losing my old family, all those shelters and that nasty surgery . . . it makes me nervous when people leave me behind. Lexie wasn't worried at all, just kind of disgusted. She left me alone and went back under the bed to sleep. No fun there, and I couldn't even get at the tissues in the downstairs bathroom garbage. Oh, well. Nappy time.

Well, she was right. They came back hours later from the State Fair and gave us lots of hugs and kisses - yippee and Arrrooo! Mom also came home with a Schnauzer Security Co. sign for our back gate. Lexie says this is because she and I are very valuable members of the family and Mom wants to hire these professionals to protect us! Wow. This company must specialize in guarding schnauzers. How cool is that? I feel so loved! Arrroooo!
