Meeting my family


 I remember my new mummy and daddy coming to my old house with George and we went mental when we saw each other. It was a Friday evening, 23 March 2007. I was about 19 months old and used to live with a big dog and he used to pick on me. When we calmed down we all got into the car and drove away. I was hungry (again) so I began to eat from this dish. George snarled at me, I thought he was going to be my new friend. My new mummy made us sit apart till we got to my new home. When we arrived home we played for hours, George wasn't all that bad after all. That night I cried. They all seemed really nice but it was all strange to me and I miss my old family too.


This is an early photo of us together. I think we must have been naughty or fighting because that is when we climb into the basket together.


For a few days George went quiet again, so I kept my head low and tried to show him I wanted to be friends. He started cuddling me and pushing strange rubber toys in my face. Eventually I would try to take it from his mouth but he would grab it back and run off. I understand him more now, it's called playing and we all romp round on the floor. I like it when mum and dad get down to our level and we can be silly.


Here is a link to an advert mum bought not long after we met. She said it looked just like me, I can't see how, I'm much more handsome. She must really love me though because it is hung in our spare bedroom:


Another early photo of me when I had moved to live with my new family.



Learning new tricks


I could only give paw when I came to live with George. When he did a trick he was given a treat and I couldn't do those tricks. I'll let you into a secret!.. I copied him. I don't think he realised. I didn't think he'd mind and mum and dad were so happy when I started to do the things that George had learned. They said I had picked it all up very quickly. I can now sit, roll over, sleep, beg, give paw, other paw, wave and dance.


This is me begging and waving at the same time. I get so excited.

Things I love: Food glorious food. Treats. Walkies. Mummy, daddy and George (when he's not too rough). Cuddles and attention, lots of attention. Having my chest tickled, it makes me laugh and rub my eyes :-) Travelling in the car (there's usually a walk involved) Snuggling up with mum and dad in bed at the weekend. Licking the remains of George's food out of his beard. (See my poem 'Love and hate' further down)

Things I hate: Being bullied. Nasty dogs. The stray dogs round the pond. Rain. Bath time. (See my poem 'Love and hate' further down)

My favourite walks: Yes I love walks, the longer the better. Then when I go home, have a nap, I'm ready for another. Running in the fields, in the woods, anywhere I can run with the wind in my beard. The seaside and the beach, there's so many interesting smells. (avoid the rock pools though!)

Other pets who share my home: George, Black Miniature Schnauzer.

My favourite saying: Biscuit. Walkies. Dinner.

Breed: Miniature Schnauzer
