Lord of the Ring

Interesting fact here, there is not as much difference between us and the humans as we all might have thought.

Having said that, there are a few important things that set us apart. We can smell a sausage from the next street over. And we don't mind peeing in public, not at all. Apart from that, peas in a pod.

As I can illustrate with my story here. The other day, Mum took me to a dog show. I was wondering what it was they wanted to show us dogs and I'm sorry to say, I am still not clear on that and can provide no insight here.

Whatever they wanted to show us, we had to walk around in a big circle looking for it. The mystery deepened as not one of us found a darn thing.

However, it was not all a waste of time as I did discover that if we like chasing things, well, so do the humans. They were all really keen to get these round shiny things called medals. Mum got one and boy, was she ever pleased. Don't know why, it's not even good for chewing.

I might, on a day when I have the time, teach Mum to chase fun things. Like cats. And birds. And falling leaves.

Of course, there is another similarity between us and them. Mum often says she must be barking. She's not very good at it though, I've never heard it. She's never even managed to make the neighbour's cat look twice, poor thing.

Maybe it's best if the humans leave being a schnauzer to us who do it best.


  1. Way to go Isaac!! - well done on getting a medal for your human, it's good to keep them happy now and then. Ours would never dare take us in a show ring, we'd probably pee up the judges leg! Dex & Louis xxx Yoour comments on our blog did make us laugh!!

  2. Congratulations on your medal, Isaac. You sure are the Lord of the Ring. Humans often do the unnecessary. If only they learn to trust us to do what we can.

  3. Yay Isaac on your medal! Shame you didn't find anything when you were going around the circle though!
