Arrival Story:
My uncle's dog gave birth to a litter of 5 puppies and because they were so irresistable we ended up with 2 of them -- Lazypig and his brother, Fay.

Lan-Chu means lazypig in Cantonese. He has been the most relaxed puppy since young never fighting for attention. Because of this trait, he has gained the reputation of being the most laid back dog. He can always be found on the bed or the sofa and would stand up for minutes just to get some treats. He loves his brother and enjoys sleeping on his humans' lap too. Lan-Chu is also very good at cheering people up. A look at him with his tonuge sticking out is more than enough to drive all worries away!!!

The Hippo Schnauzer Diary

HK pet expo

We went to the pet expo on Sunday and had a great time there. My sisters said it’s a bit like Crufts in the UK but on a smaller scale. This didn’t stop us having a good time. There were lots of other doggies and a lot of stalls selling nice smelling food. We stopped at the Chinese Medicine booth and picked up some herbs for Schnauzers. The nice doctor there said we are prone to skin irritation and kidney problems and the herbs will help keep a good balance of yin & yang. I hope it will not taste too bitter but sisters said they will mix honey into the herb tea for us. We also booked a photo shoot which will have to wait until we have our next grooming. We did have some trial photos taken though with a background of the Bahamas. We doggies were just lounging around which was kinda fun but I didn’t like staying so still. The best thing of the entire outing was the 4 bags of Recipe dog chow we bought. I’ve been going into the room a lot to make sure they are safe and sound.


Where is my sister?

Sister has been away for two nights and mum said she has gone to The Philippines for training. Hmm….. is it some kind of obedience training teaching her commands like sit and stay? I wonder why mum didn’t teach her at home like she taught us three doggies. I wish mum did as I really miss sister. I have stopped pointing at food these days. Instead I point at the door and listen for keys jangling and locks turning, hoping sister will come through the door and kiss me. It is so lonely and cold without her sharing the bed with me at night. I am sure she feels the same, though she always says I take up most of the bed leaving her just enough room to toss and turn.

I hope she is enjoying her training, and most importantly, I hope they will teach her the ‘give-lan chu-treats’ command. She is not very good with this you see and only responds to my command 50% of the time. Sometimes I really need to work hard before she understands!!!!


Fat Pointer

I think I must have been a Pointer in my previous life as I have retained some of their traits. I love pointing at food whenever my humans are around, just like the Pointers would indicate where fallen games are. You would always find me napping close to the dinning table or the treats cupboard, jumping up to point at food when my humans walk pass. To my dismay they don't usually understand my gesture. Instead, they would mock me and say 'you are so chubby', or 'I have never seen such a fat Pointer before!!They are all lean and muscular'. What's wrong with being a chubby and lazy Schnauzer?? I happen to think it's quite cute.
