Newton

Adventurer

Well according to My Parents,  Dog books, History books, Breed books and all kinds of Google search thingies I am a Miniature Schnauzer.

A book is good for chewing, not reading. DUH! So I just have to go with what they say, but to be honest I wouldn’t say miniature, that’s just rude.

I turned 3 this past July and my parents didn’t even give me the cat I begged for. So I opted for the Go Away Bird that squeaks in the back yard. He is not very friendly, perhaps because I play too rough and mom had to struggle to get his feathers out of my mouth.

Birds, Birds, BIRDS!!! I love snuggling up to my humans, I like the way their ears look and taste. Running and chasing and running and jumping, but not too far from home, I get all emotional when I can’t  see my humans. My tail fascinates me some…BIRDS BIRDS BIRDS!!!..

I love being in open spaces and love having it all to myself, big water pools with waves and squawking birds, big open sand places with big squeaking birds, white cold water in heaps over mountains with flying white balls for me to chase. I got on top of my human when she was sleeping in the cold white water so I could get a better view. I thought I saw a bird.

My humans say I am the cutest thing in the world, I don’t know what that means but I get a treat when I hear that word. I use my tiny hands and nose to play with my rope and not my mouth like other stinky dogs do. I have my own special blanket that I take everywhere with me. I am very strong (don’t call me miniature) because I like to take my human’s blanket off their bed and carry it around.

Don’t tell anyone, bus she’s my favourite. I am a real good backseat driver, some may call me Baby Driver.

It was time for a little extra love and life in our home. My parents are avid dog lovers but unfortunately mom has sinus problems so they opted to go for the “Non Shedding dog options”. Mom decided, without dad knowing of course, to visit Newton's parents and their humans.

Amongst all the tiny furry bodies she saw me, Newton, I sat under a leafy bush with two little button eyes peering out at her. She sat down on the grass with her legs crossed and my tiny little body emerged from the ferns. A little puffy ball with legs and a nose that looked like a pencil eraser.  As soon as she picked me up and put me on her chest, I moved towards her ears and started chewing them.

That was it. No turning back from there! Love at first bite. She took me home that day and it was one of the best decisions she has ever made, I am her furry friend and we do everything together. Including blow drying our hair, watching television, road trips, hiking and oh so much more.
