so are they cute or what? i love them like family.
jaxon the big black one is a rescue dog. he was abandoned by his owner’s. 😦 his family just moved away and did not take him with them. he was left in the backyard to fend for himself. who does that kind of thing? oh well, their loss is our gain! he is such bright dog! he came house broken, he can eat off of a fork, don’t ask. 😉 he makes me laugh and smile because when he wants something, he does this moaning, singing noise to get my attention. when he needs out, we ask him if he needs out and he will bark three times, you know (((bark))) O, (((bark))) U, (((bark))) T. well in my mind he is spelling. any way… that is a little about jaxon. oh one more thing, we gave to our youngest son for christmas last year (2010).
next in the picture is wattson. he is a white miniature schnauzer. he is our oldest dog and boy can we tell he is getting older. he is crabby, gets startled easily, and can’t be bothered anymore. oh, let me address the misspelling of his name. when we got wattson he was about 5 weeks old and bright WHITE! so my husband wanted to call him WATTson, in reference to the wattage of a light bulb. another don’t ask…the more you read about my world the more insight you will get about my husband…:)
back to wattson, he loves to play soccer! he is good too. he dribbles the ball with his nose while running towards me and then when i try to get it from him he moves to the right or left and goes around me. hehe, he is better than i am with ball control. wattson is somewhat of a romantic… he has been married to maggie the little dog next to him for 6 long years. however, he loves to show his love to me too! take a look…
wattson will often come to me and just sit his paw on my foot. he just sits it there like we are holding hands. so sweet.
so last but not least is maggie! maggie is a salt and pepper miniature schnauzer. she is so sweet, everyone who has met her just falls in love. she is quiet and sleeps about 18 hours a day in her little bed. i think she is so worn out from being a mother of 20.
wattson and maggie have had 4 litters of puppies with 5 puppies in each litter. maggie did not loose even one puppy, she was such great mom. after her last litter we took her to the vet…so now no more puppies. here is a picture of her last litter. soooo cute!
look at those hears!!! that puppy’s ears are still just like that…my therapy yesterday was playing with my doggies! they bring such joy to my life. when i am sick, lonely or sad maggie will come a lay with me to comfort me. my plan is to have her certified as a therapy dog and let her hang around my office to bring comfort to my clients.
so this is my 6 article, give me some feedback, or just leave a comment so that I know you are out there and i am not just writing to the air. thanks for stopping by.
