Wow Life has been busy

My humans, they are so busy, there are a total of 4 young humans running around my house now. The oldest, he's my human, then there is the curly headed one, she's getting ready to start something called kinder garden or something, then there are two babies now, both are walking. I try to kiss on the oldest baby, but when i do, she cries, don't know what that is about, but the baby that just started walking, she doesn't mind my kisses and she knows my name now, no more having to answer to doggie.
Boy those humans make me tired. The baby that likes my kisses, she's been sick, I heard momma say something about a brain tumor, she was gone for a while and mom and dad were really scared. I think she'll be fine though even though mom said the tumor is growing back. She acts fine to me, plus she'll come up to me and pet me, she's very sweet and gental.

I go to the Dr myself this week, I hate getting shots, but mom said she'd get me a shot for my allergies (what ever that is) I sure am itchy, but the shot helped last time, so if my little human can handle a brain surgery, I can handle a little shot or two.

Oh and I have to say that I am so proud of my momma, she graduates this month, with a B.S (again what ever that is) but those long nights of keeping me up with her homework are over for a while. I didn't mind though, momma is good company(and she'd scratch my ear as she read).

Life is good though, I have a house full of humans that love me, and a comfy couch to lay on.

 

Adopt 2011 Contest

Our first Miniture Schnauzer, Tweeker, passed away after 6 wonderful years with him. He was adopted so I knew when were ready for another dog, we would adopt again. For us there was no better way to honor Tweeker's memory then to save another life, just as we did his.
It took us almost a year to find a miniture schnazuer to adopt (including a grieving period). I searched local shelters regularly, and rescues within my own state and surronding states as well. Our problem was we had a 2 year old daughter and most breed specific rescues would not adopt to a family with small children. Those that would consider adopting to a family with children turned us down because we didn't have a fenced in yard. Now it was frustrating at times because we had breed experance, wonderful vet and groomer refrences as well, plus we own our home. But above all else, we are responsible parents and pet owners. I knew all this, but I had to be understanding that the rescues had these rules in place for a reason and were only looking out for thier dogs.
Petfinder.com again came to the rescue. I found an out of state rescue that had a very handsome schnauzer which they pulled from a kill shelter, I contacted them, gave them our story and our refrences and they said they would adopt to us. I was so excited.
I would not recommend adopting a dog you have never met before, especially if you have kids, but for us, and our breed experance, I was willing to work with any issues he may have had. Plus I kept in close contact with his foster mom and she assured me he was a very easy going dog.
My husband drove the 2 hours to get him and brought him home. He made himself right at home to. When I came home from work(I had yet to meet him), he ran to the door and greeted me as if he'd known me his whole life and missed me so.
Max was 11 months old when he became a part of our family. He is such a wonderful dog, great with the kids, and we have only had minor issues to work on, normal puppy things he just needed to be taught.

I can't express in words how important adoption is, but Max, he is a wonderful example of what great dogs are out there just waiting to be loved.

 

A baby walking and a new baby came home.

Things are busy at my house. The thing that was crawing and following me around everywhere, well she's figured out how to walk, she's nice though when mom puts her in her chair to eat, she'll throw food down to me.
There's a new little crying thing in the house again, I'm safe from it for now though, she just lays there and sleeps all the time, sometimes she cries, but not a lot.
We're all looking forward to Christmas, I wonder what I'll get in my stocking this year, I'm hoping for a new kong wubba toy and maybe some blue buffalo treats, I have been a really good boy this year.

Well there's this liitle thing living in our house, she's crawling everwhere now, she loves to follow me, she loves my beard, and if I'm not careful she takes my toys. I figured out I could take my toys to the couch to be safe, but that only worked for a little while, now she can pull herself up to the couch and reach my toys again.
Oh well, she is kinda cute, I guess I can live with it, besides I think we'll have another one of those things again soon, I think I heard mom call it a "baby"

 

Protective behavior?

Last night I was taking Max out for his last walk of the evening. When we first went out all the neighbor dogs were barking up a storm and this ruffled Max's fur (nothing new there). So we walked around the house like we normally do but I noticed his behavior changed a little (by this time the other dogs were silent and everything outside was very quiet) he would venture away from me a little bit, but then come right back, which I didn't think anything about at first, then as we continue on around he would stand in front of me, agian I didn't think anything about it at first, but then as I go to walk around Max he does it again, he stops right in front of me, that's when I realized my little mini was body blocking me, but from what?
Even though I didn't see or hear anything, Max sure did and he was trying to protect me, so needless to say we went right back in the house. Normally on our walks Max is way out infront of me, but not last night, even on the way back to our house he was right next to my side.

Once in the house he was pretty much back to normal, except every once in a while he acted as if he heard something outside that got his attention, then he'd go back to lazying it up next to me on the couch.

Max is helping with baby

Well our 6 month old human baby girl is having to get breathing treatments which she hates! While she is screaming and crying because of them Max comes over to investigate. It seems that she is now just as curious about him, as he is her.
During each treatment Max will come sit next to us, and when she starts to cry he'll stand up and sniff her, he really gets her attention when he sniffs and licks her little fingers, she'll stop crying and watch him and when he stops licking she runs her little fingers threw his beard ( I am careful to make sure she doesn't pull it though).
After that Max will lay back down until she starts crying again and he's back up licking her fingers again. It's a cycle they go through every breathing treatment (5 times a day).
I know I say this every post, but I am so thankful Max is such a wonderful family dog and I am so glad we have him.



~Opt to Adopt~

 

A little humor

If you want someone who will eat whatever you put in front of him and never say it's not quite as good as his mother's,
then adopt a dog

If you want someone always willing to go out, at any hour,
for as long and wherever you want,
then adopt a dog.

If you want someone who will never touch the remote, doesn't care
about football, and can sit next to you as you watch romantic movies,
then adopt a dog.

If you want someone who is content to get on your bed just to
warm your feet and whom you can push off if he snores,
then adopt a dog.

If you want someone who never criticizes what you do, doesn't care if you are pretty or ugly, fat or thin, young or old, who acts as if every word you say is especially worthy of listening to, and loves
you unconditionally,
then adopt a dog.

BUT, on the other hand, if you want someone who will never come when you call, ignores you totally when you come home, leaves hair
all over the place, walks all over you, runs around all night and only comes home to eat and sleep, and acts as if your entire existence is solely to ensure his happiness,
then adopt a cat
(what, did you think I was going to say get a husband?)

 

happy anniversary

It has been 1 year since we decided to adopt Max, what a great year it has been.
Max has been through so much and he is thriving. We love him so much and are so thankful to have found him.

 

Human baby growing, Max is still patient

Well our human baby is now 6 months old and growing more curious everyday.
Max still comes and sniffs her daily and loves to lick her bald head, but it's almost like he knows to keep his beard away from her. When she trys to put her hands on him he just licks her little fingers and walks away.
He's such a good boy.
