Likes: Meeting everyone when Mama takes her for a walk, playing with as many toys as she can, playing frisbee with Papa
Pet-Peeves: Thunderstorms is the #1 pet peeve. Also, not being able to meet people. She has a unique way of voicing her displeasure to her "Mama."
Favorite Toy: Squeaky toys, i.e. ducks, mouse, otter, or just about anything soft that she can carry in her mouth.
Favorite Food: Anything in the treat category.
Favorite Walk: Central Bark, playing frisbee in the back yard.
Best Tricks: Shake hands, lie down, speak and wagging her tail on command. Hershey is becoming a master at catching treats without jumping for them.
Arrival Story: We got Hershey through a breeder in Maine that we found on line. She was eight weeks old when she came to live with us in Connecticut. It was pouring rain the day we got her. She is a great family pet.
Bio: We have another miniature schnauzer in the family. Her name is Kaci (pronounced Casey). Kaci lives in New Hampshire with her Mama (my husband's mother). There is an age gap of almost a year and a half between the two dogs. Kaci is the older of the two. The two of them have become the best of friends. Kaci also was with us when we brought Hershey home.
Hershey is a great family pet. Unlike Kaci who can be very hyperactive at times, Hershey is very calm. When she gets excited her tail spins around like a top and her back end hydroplanes. She does not have a mean bone in her body.

Mama and Papa spent Thanksgiving making the rounds in Rhode Island. They first traveled to Warwick and then to North Smithfield. Kaci and I stayed home. We are not allowed to go to the complex that Papa's aunt lives in. Half of the apartments allow cats and half allow dogs. Since she has a cat we can't even go and visit her. Bummer!
But Kaci and I were glad when they came home. We had fun jumping on them with their hands full of leftovers of turkey with all the trimmings.
But Mama says that this part of celebrating Thanksgiving was the best part. Mama was having fun with Jessy who remembered her from the previous visits at our house. Jessy proceeded to try to "counter surf" some of the turkey and get a taste of cheesecake which was on the dining room table. She also "helped" around the house by washing the dishes after everyone had eaten. She could not stop laughing at Jessy's antics. Kaci and I are definitely too small to "counter surf" and get food that way.
Guess what? Kaci is here for Thanksgiving visiting with me, Mama and Papa. We are having lots of fun driving Mama crazy. So far we have run around the dining room table play growling at each other, wanting to be fed and go out at the same time and trying to play with the same toy. I grab one end and Kaci the other.
Kaci has taken over looking out the picture window but I get first dibs on almost everything else. I am sure we will have lots of adventures to share with our pals since she will be here for almost two weeks.
We are sorry that we have not posted much lately. Mama took care of Jessy for almost two weeks and there were some other things that took up her time. But I wanted to thank everyone who sent special gifts to me the past two weeks. In particular I would like to thank:
