Schnauzer Public Service Message...LOL

I got up extra early this morning and headed out to the office while it was still dark. When I left, Liesl was sitting at the front door looking so sad because she wanted to go to work with me. I had to run back home for my forgotten cell phone and she was still sitting there looking with a "I wanna come to work with you" look in her eyes. I can't resist sad puppy eyes, they are my downfall...So she came to work and got extra spoiled by the employees and sniffed noses with her puppy friends.

I don't know if I mentioned it before, but Liesl is my first dog. I got her two years ago when I was 44. I wish I had known all along how wonderful it is to have furbaby. As a mini schnauzer, she has a very big personality. This breed is very busy, smart, and stubborn as all get out. They also have a great sense of humor. They are also very emotional. She actually cracks me up when she has her cranky on. The three sizes of schnauzers are referred to as "the dog with the human brain" because of their ability to use human reasoning and logic. Most people who have experience with them will tell you that it truly is like having another human around. They are pretty good at communicating their wants and needs.

They are great dogs but not for the faint of heart. LOL They are so smart that you have to stay one step ahead of them, which takes energy on the puppy parent's part. Plus, they need a lot of exercise. But they are so worth the work and effort. They are so incredibly loyal, funny and a lot of fun. All they want is to be with their people.

Tomorrow we get back to stitching. Whoohoo!

I couldn't agree with you more! We have had three schnauzers and each one was very special. They are just like having a two year old around. My hubby and I feel so blessed to have Charli. She's a little spit fire and she is so loveable ♥ Your little girl is as cute as pie ♥

What a sweetie. I had a wire-haired fox terrier who was so sweet and smart. Sorry to hear about the losses from cancer. It seems to be taking more and more people, even people you would never think could be touched by it. Hope you've been stitching. Happy hands, happy heart! :) Tammy

Liesl is a baby doll. I too got a schnauzer about 2 1/2 years ago after being a cat person. I had a silver schnauzer growing up so I knew they were awesome dogs. I am SO glad I got my white schnauzer, Carson. He is a job, just like your Liesl.
