Dog’s Best Friend

Maybe he got confused by the name (after all, we are both named Aaron). Or maybe it was when they bonded on their 4 mile hike together. Either way, Witty has a new best friend and he would like to know when you will visit again. The End.

1 Year Anniversary with our lil’ Schnauzer, Witty

It will be a year today that we first picked up our little schnauzer from Darien, Connecticut. He traveled all the way from Indiana in a van filled with a dozen other soon-to-be adopted pups rescued from puppy mills across the midwest.

He was matted, stinky, scared and sick. But the moment we picked him up, he held on as if he’d never let go – as if he was saved.  And anyone who’s met our lil’ man can attest, he still has yet to let go.

Here’s to many more years with our little schnauzer, Witty!

Santa Monica Schnauzer

Witty, our little Santa Monica Schnauzer, heads home tomorrow and… he’s not very happy about it.

Witty Takes on Connecticut

pay no mind to the red pepper…

Okay, so he’s been here before. But this time, he encountered a 200 pound Bullmastiff, a flea market of epic proportions, 3 moms on Mother’s Day, and a family gathering for the ages. Let’s just say, if you’re looking to tire your pooch out, give him a weekend getaway every once in a while.

Enjoying the sunshine.

Witty got some style tips at Brimfield.

They’re about the same size at heart.

A beautiful spring day.

What trip to Connecticut doesn’t come with ticks?

10 Pounds and Gunnin’ – Witty’s Routine

Just loungin'

Sammy and I learned early on that puppies need patterns.  They have to be on a set schedule – be able to anticipate. But how do you do that when we ourselves can’t find one rhythm over another? We usually wake at 7:30am, but sometimes it’s earlier – sometimes later. Witty is ready to crash at about 9:00pm, but we usually doze off around midnight or later. I try to walk him every afternoon and night, but my work is random and doesn’t make for a regular walk time. And then there’s our little adventures. So far Witty has gone to Connecticut, Vermont, Upstate New York and California several times over and we’ve only had him 2 months. It’s something that is always in the back of our minds, but rather than stress over it, we’ve realized he’s actually pretty good at adapting.

He eats at a regular time and for the most part we walk him right after, but everything else he simply flows with it and that’s exactly what we wanted. He travels like an all-star, but we still catch a glimpse of his suspicious eye. He looks at us like we are crazy when we up and go on a whim. But, as long as he has his toys, some treats, and good bout of fresh air, he seems to care little about what time things take place. So, in our opinion, yeah – stick to a schedule if you can, but it’s not the end of the world if you don’t. On the flip side, he’s ready for anything and appears to have less anxiety because of it.

Witty walks Central Park.

Witty's "Calm" 1.34 mile walk in the park.

Witty's "Busy" 2.0 mile walk in order to get him used to city living.

 

Witty takes a break on the trail.

Those are puppy eyes.

This was two weeks ago. He has probably grown 3 pounds since then!
