Thankful Thursday

I am thankful that Christmas came a little early at my house!

Merry Christmas to ME!!!!!

Meet Captain "Jack" Black


He's an 8 week mini schnauzer.  Black, with salt and pepper on his paws and a white triangle on each cheek.  He is ADORABLE.  Sweet, loving, calm and a loads of fun!

Jordan wasn't too thrilled at first, but over the past week that we've had him, she has warmed considerably and now plays growly and snuggles with him.  It is so fun to see her happy and playing!

He did make it a little difficult to work yesterday when he spent a lot of time jumping on the laptop and biting my hands.

(really Mom?  He's kinda bugging right now)

(she tries to walk away sometimes....)

(but he just keeps at her!)

He's a small, small mini schnauz - just like my Jordan.  Based on the size of his parents, his likely won't get any bigger than 9 or 10 pounds.  Perfect!  I watched a lot of litters and waited until I found just the right one.

I've been asked, will I now breed my two kids?  Doubtful.  Granted they are both papered purebreds, but I didn't get him for breeding purposes, strictly companion.  And while he is adorable, he doesn't meet AKC standards in that he has the white patches, and his neck is a little too long for their dimensions, so if I ever did, it would be for strictly companion puppies.  A little early to be making any kind of that call though, we are going to just enjoy his fun, cute, sweet personality amid the potty training and chewing that comes with it!
And really - who can resist this face and all the sweet puppy breath that comes with it?

Welcome Jack to M-Cat's litter!

I rally wish you wouldn't have posted that picture.
In fact it was rude.

Record his little growling. I think it would be cute.....I mean rude.

How sweet! Mini schnauzers have a special place in my heart. We had one when we first got married.

They are just like my Harry and Harley. Harley is always bouncing off of Harry, trying to get him to play. Too cute. Love me some puppies.

I am really considering getting another schnaz. Is he a companion enough for Jordan to make up the extra work? I know that all of the work will fall onto me.

OH my gosh, you must know how much I love puppies. and puppy breath. Ouch - my ovaries are exploding! I love it! Love the name! I want to smell him.

Oh my gosh, he's adorable! I cannot believe how quiet they both are. Maybe I should have you pick out our next puppy.

Lara said...

Oh freak, he's so cuuuuute! I am very puppy hungry right now. Having a hard time convincing my husband though. I'll just stare at your pictures all night instead. Seriously. He's so adorable!

I already have a fondness for Jack because 1) he is named after my favorite movie star. B) I had a mini schnauzer that exact color growing up. He looks like a pretty cute dog.

Congrats and what a great Christmas present!

Okay, I seriously want that puppy. Really bad.

carma said...

congrats on your new little buddy!! I'm still giving serious thought even though my husband and son don't want a pooch...jumping up on the laptop and biting your hands - hmmmm...not sure I'm up for that just yet :D

Admittedly, I'm not much of a dog person, but I will grant you this, he really is cute!!

He is just adorable. My daughter is eagerly awaiting the day we tell her she can have a puppy, probably sometime this spring.
