The It Puppy

I'm It - Max and JD tagged me in a picture game!

Now I have to...

  • Open the folder that contains Pet photos

  • Select any photo in that folder that I haven’t posted previously

  • Post that photo along with the story behind it on my blog

  • Then tag 5 friends

So here's my picture.

This was taken on the day I chose my human. She was visiting the breeder where I was born, and I was playing in the yard with my eight identical salt-and-pepper sisters.

We were so identical that we had asked our breeder to put spots of paint on our backs, to avoid confusion. I requested a little red dot of paint at the base of my tail, and that's how I got my first name, "Little Red Dot" (or "Little Dot").

As soon as I saw my human, I knew she was going to be my human. It was obvious she didn't have enough Schnauzer in her life, and I knew I was the best puppy for the job!

So I wrestled her to the ground and held her down until she submitted, and then I arranged things with my breeder. A few weeks later I organised for her to come and pick me up and take me home... and you know the rest!

And now I have to tag some puppies to choose a picture. I think most of the puppies I know have already been tagged, but I'm going to cheat a little and tag two at once - my cousins Bertie and Oliver - that means one picture each...

And if there's anyone out there who hasn't been tagged yet, then consider yourself the new It!

Oh SASHA, what an adorable photo! And we're quite beside ourselves to think that there are 8 other young ladies out there just like! Of course, not one of the would have your combination of charm and wit as well as beauty though. We came from a litter of boys only, but theere were only two others in our litter. This is a lovely story of how you chose your human! Tail wags - JD and Max.

We schnauzers do make the most adorable puppies, don't we!

Oh Sasha! Good job you arranged things with your human when you did, looking that cute there would probably have been a fight over you! as I imagine everyone would have wanted to take you home! :) Nemo.

Oh my God, Sasha - you were just the most divine puppy!! (Well, you're fairly cute now too! :-) ) - I'm not surprised your human didn't resist "negotiations"! :-) I think you chose very well and are very lucky to have found your human family. What a lovely story!
