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.
Today we have been members of the Dogster community for six years. This month has been pawtastic for my family and I. Earlier this month, I celebrated my eighth birthday. Then I was named Dogster Dog of the Week last week. I also received one of the DDPs last week too (Feb. 12th) - ironically that was the day that Dogster decided not to shut down the community features of the website.
We are so happy about that too. We did find another forum that we like but like a lot of other pups have said this community is "our home." We have met so many nice pals and friends here too.
Thank you Dogster HQ for reconsidering the previous decision of shutting down the community.
We are doing the happy dance in very chilly New England.
Mama logged onto Dogster to see a really pleasant surprise. I am the Dogster Dog of the Week! No one in my family got this honor until now. Thank you Dogster, HQ.
