I am a Schnauzer Owner

Over the last 2 years or so (really 19 years, but I digress), I have been trained by Schnauzers on how to be the perfect mom for this breed. I have learned and mastered several "tricks" and many other things I have come to love so much. Which are:
  • Throwing a toy down the hall while blow-drying my hair.
  • Fetching toys from under various pieces of furniture.
  • Learning the meaning of various whines and barks so that I don't have to look up to see what is going on.
  • Feeding at exactly 6:30am and 6:30pm. Any later and things get out of hand.
  • Throwing the toy each and every time it is brought to me, no matter how sleepy/busy i am.
Things I love more than life:
  • The smell of a musty beard after playing all day
  • "Frito" feet
  • Sleeping on their backs with legs in the air
  • A deep sigh before falling asleep
  • "Hugs"
  • Chocolate Gumdrop Eyes

Yay! A new post! I agree with you on everything - especially the eating at the same exact time in the morning and at night. The girls throw up yellow bile if I am even 5 minutes late with their food! Ick! Craziness.
