At work, I get lots of
nap lap time. I love when Ms. Beth comes by to see me. She holds me like a baby and says I am growing so much that I barely fit in her lap.
I like to sit on Mommy’s lap, too, and look at the thing that is like a silent TV and type on her ‘puter keyboard. And I like wearing my cuteness walking vest. It keeps me from being chilly in our office, and besides, if I have to go outside in a hurry, I already have my walking vest on.
Pretty soon I start to get sleepy…
…so I rest my head on the edge of the desk and take a little nap.
That’s when Mommy gently lays me in my bed
so she can work so I am more comfy.
A growing girl needs her sleep.

Mom took me to the smart pet place and I tried on lots of clothes. She finally decided on this sweater to keep me warm this winter. I think I look quite pretty in it. I got to wear it for the first time today because it was 32 degrees (that’s 0 degrees centigrade, says Mom) cold out this morning.
Here comes Xena. We are getting along great now. We are playing all the time. She makes ahrahrahr noises at me and I make them back at her while we play bitey face. Sometimes we play chase, too. It’s a modified bully breed kind of playing. I know now I have to be gentle with her, because 1. She is not a bully breed and 1. She is still a baby and 1. I don’t want to get into any more trouble. And besides, now I have clothes, just like her.
I love you, little sister. *licky kisses* Mmmm, your beard tastes good.
Love, Licks and wiggles,
This is Amy, Mom to Lucy and Xena, as well as Angel Lexi. I am sharing my gratefulness today for Blogville. I first used Dogster. Dogster limited its users to 5 pictures and there was no real community there. Because it had been bought out with the new owners talking about closing down the blogging portion, I decided to create my own website to blog about Lexi, my thespian schnauzer. I soon became addicted, and was thrilled every time someone new found The Adventures of Lexi the Schnauzer – actually, I still am!
Of course it’s easy to become attached to animals. I was, however, a bit surprised when I found myself starting to really care about many of the people behind the keyboards. I watched a true community form whenever someone was in need – whether it was for prayer, encouragement, financial, or all three. Then, when I was losing – and lost – my heart dog Lexi I was overwhelmed by the kindness, the caring, and the support I got from this community of people I had never met in person. I don’t know what I would have done without you.
Now, you join me in enjoying the antics of my girls. You commiserate with Lucy over her trials with the “cute puppy,” applaud her in her victories, worry for her when she runs off, and rejoice when she shows the world that bullie breeds are actually sweet, loving dogs. You follow along with Xena as she learns about her world, overcomes her fears, tries to dominate her bigger siblings and grows way to fast. And you give me many smiles and some tears with pictures and stories of your own furbabies.
Thank you. thank you, thank you for all of this. I am grateful for each and every one of you — friends who have become family. Wishing you folks here in the U.S.A. a wonderful Thanksgiving and hoping everyone else celebrates right along with us.

Shhh..I’m trying to sleep a few more minutes before going to work.

I am not allowed loose outside at all now, not since I ran away once or twice or was it four or five times? I’ve lost count. So I like to remember how much fun I used to have playing outside with Riley.
We hunted for the best sticks and carried them around together.
And tried to take them away from each other.
And played tug-of-war.
Sometimes we chased each other.
And played tug-of-war some more.
Pleasantly exhausted, we would finish the day with a good nap together. Just me and my guy. *sigh* Before I got double-grounded.
Licks and little wiggles, Lucy
Yep, it’s me. Can I help it if Mom doesn’t put the cotter pin in the gate and Riley opens it? We went to visit some of our favorite nearby folks. Just trying to be neighborly, ya’ know?
If it wasn’t for the new ID tag Mom got me I might have been able to stay out longer. But the neighbors called Mom and Mom called Andrew and Andrew came and got us – after he found his way back home from tromping through the woods into different neighborhoods looking for us. He was not a happy camper, I can tell you. ~Lucy, the Delinquent
What can I say? I mean, what do you say when your girlfriend tells you she wants go go on a date? I mean, like, when she bats her big eyes at you and says things like, “You’re so good at opening gates, sweetie pie!” I’ll tell you what. You don’t say anything. You just open the gate and take her on a date. ~Riley, the Unjustly Accused
I have a new playmate. (Mom was so surprised that she didn’t get the video just right, so please overlook that.)
Her name is Xena. I thought and thought and finally realized I had to play more gently with her than I do with Riley. Riley and I play this way, but we are rougher. Now Xena’s not afraid and we are having tons of fun together!
Be still, Xena. Just rest for a moment, OK?
Love and wags, Lucy
I have a new playmate! (I think I could have done a better job on the video than Mommy did, but I was busy playing. And excuse the gagging at the end…I got some hair stuck in my throat.)
Her name is Lucy. I haven’t had another dog to play with since I left my littermates. Now Lucy is playing nicely with me and I don’t feel like she is going to run me over and smoosh my brains out. We played all day long! Of course, we took little breaks to eat and go potty – outside! Then we played again until it was time to go to bed. I can’t wait until we play together again tomorrow!

Smiles, hops, skips and wiggles from Lucy and Xena the Schnauzer Warrior Princess
Come closer. I want to tell you something.
*Whack! Whack! Whack! Whack!
Hey! Leggo my leg!
Why are you being like this, Xena?
I’m bored. Turn your head that way, Lucy. I want to tell you something else.
Whack me once, shame on you. Whack me twice, shame on me.
OK then, I’ll lay paws on you and pray for you to recover from your recent whacking. I am the church puppy, you know.
Love and Wiggles from “the
abused patient what have I done to deserve this big sister Lucy
And from me, Xena, the Schnauzer Warrior Princess
I slept on Giant Duckie.
I slept on Teddie.
I slept on Racoon.
But the best place of all to sleep…
…is on my Mommy’s lap, surrounded by my pack.
Xena, the sleepy Schnauzer Warrior Princess
Lucy: Hey Xena, Mom said if we were good dogs, we might each get a new Bully Horn for Christmas! And some new used stuffies, too!
Xena: Yay! I want a bully horn! And new stuffies! Wait, what’s Christmas?
Lucy: This will be my first Christmas with Mom and Dad, too. I hear that Christmas is a magical time of the year when all your wishes come true. And some believe that if you listen closely, you can hear the animals talk.
Xena: But we talk all the time!
Lucy: I know that, but some people don’t hear us. Maybe it is Christmas Eve when they realize that we are as real as them, with feelings and thoughts and need the same kind of love and care as them.
Xena: Hmm. I will have to think about that after lunch. Hey Lucy, did I tell you what a fun time I had at Rocktoberfest with Mom and Dad? I wish you could have been there.
Lucy: Maybe next year I won’t be so afraid of things and can go, too. I know it helped you get over some of your fears.
Xena: I’m not afraid. I’m a Warrior Princess! And I can eat chickie feet with the best of them! For some strange reason, Mommy took this picture for Halloween, but she didn’t get it on our blog.
Lucy: Yes, pretty scary. *grin* Say, I heard you are going to Angel Lexi’s vet today. Mom is taking you to Dr. Karen to get a leap tow shot.
Xena: Yep, and I won’t be afraid, either. She’s something called whole is tick. I hope I don’t get any ticks from her. I can already leap, but I have never had to tow anything. I heard Mommy talking to Dr. Karen on the phone, and she and Mommy see things the same way and won’t argue. Mommy will protect me and say, “No,” if they try to put that glass stick up my bee hind again.
Lucy: Do you realize that none of that made any sense?

Mom and I went for a walk all by ourselves today, ’cause Lucy and Riley were napping with Andrew. It was 75F/22C degrees warm and partly sunny, as the weatherman would say. I got to wear my second brand new, not from Goodwill, cuteness vest. It’s soft and comfy on me, and may give me a “buy” for my next ax ee dent.
We successfully made it to the bottom of the driveway. Now, who decides which way to go? We could go that away…
Or this away.
We decided to go this away. Oooo, good smells on the road.
I’m being good and not doing bunny hops or twirls. Lucy would be proud.
Wait, what’s that in the grass?
I see you Mr. Bug. Come on out of there.
We turned around and the other way, so it was almost like I had two walks. At the corner I found the Neighborhood Central Pee Mail Station. Before heading home, we spent some time there getting caught up on what is going on in the local news.
We’re home, Mommy and I was good! I was good! Are you gonna’ tell Lucy? Huh? Huh?
Oh. You said, “Sit.”
I am Xena, the good walking Schnauzer Warrior Princess
Lucy: OK, so first, I want to thank everyone for their support. No one told me I was a bad dog for running off. Ya’ll just told me how pretty I am and to be patient and don’t make my Mom worry about me ’cause she loves me very much.
Xena: Well, it’s true, except for the part of not being a bad dog for running off.
Lucy: I wasn’t talking to you, Xena. I was talking to all my friends who love me. Some day you will love me, too, because I am going to be a wonderful big sister to you. I remember now what it was like coming to a place – even a good place – that was all new and trying to learn what to do.
Xena: You rolled me in the dog lot today. That wasn’t nice. You scared me.
Lucy: I was trying to play with you. I will be more careful next time.
Xena: Mommy got a brand new toy just for me. His name is Racoon. I love Racoon.
Lucy: I am glad you love Racoon, Xena. Mom spent Saturday going to the half off sale at all the area Goodwills. The toys are for all of us. And I got a “new” collar.
Xena: What about my tennis ball?
Lucy: Again, the toys belong to all of us, little sister. Mom threw the ball for you a lot, and you learned it is called “ball.” That was good, Xena.
Then, Mom made sure I had a turn to play, too. She wanted me to remember that she loves me just as much as she loves you, and that we can still have fun together.
Did you know that we stood and watched you play by yourself and do zoomies? I bet you didn’t see Mom look over and smile and wink at me. Do you know what I did then, Xena?
Xena: Did you ask for a treat?
Lucy: No, I winked back!
Xena: No way! I think you’re fibbing, Lucy.
Lucy: Way! You should have seen her mouth drop open before she grinned real big.
Xena: Then Mommy and Daddy took us all – even Riley who mostly ignores me – for a walk. Mommy forgot to bring the camera phone to take my picture. She didn’t realize she needed that picture until after we got home and she went into the bathroom.
Lucy: Xena! You didn’t!
Xena: At least I went to the bathroom in the bathroom. Hey did you see my new cuteness collar? That must have been what kept me out of trouble.
Lucy: The way you acted on the walk, she probably couldn’t have gotten your picture anyhow. You bunny hopped down the road and barked and barked and zigged and zagged and totally wore yourself out.
Xena: *yawn* No I didn’t.
Lucy: Shhh. Goodnight, little sister.
Love and wiggles, Lucy
Hi. My name is Lucy and I am a runaway. It’s because I have a problem. Her name is Xena.
There, I have admitted it. That is the first step, right? You see, I never ran off from my home until Mommy brought home the cute puppy. Yep, that’s what everyone calls her. Oh, what a cute puppy. Do you have any idea how much I want to stop up my ears every time I hear that? She has ruined my life. I never get time with my Mom and Dad. Well…almost never.
One day not long ago Andrew took me and Riley outside to play. The first thing I did when Andrew looked away was to run off through the woods with Riley, and let Riley take the fall for it. It was easy to get him blamed for corrupting me. After all, I had never run off before.
Sure, they let me sleep in the bed with them now, but I know it’s just because they feel guilty about letting the cute puppy sleep there. They don’t have me fooled.
I was cold, so Mom covered me up and I slept with my head on her pillow.
the brat the cute puppy got her spot on the bed too!
I just get so sick of Xena taking all my stuff. And she never gets in trouble for it, either.
Mom was with us the next time that we were all in the back yard, outside the fence. I saw her look down at her phone and I took my chance. Riley had just gotten a lecture about not running off, and he told me he was staying put. So I took off into the woods behind the house by myself and Xena followed me. I didn’t really mean to take her. I didn’t want her around me at all. So I sent her back and she was waiting by the fence when Mom came running from scouring the front yard and the woods looking for us. I waited just a bit to see if Mom even cared that I was still gone. When I saw her running around asking everybody if they had seen me, I decided to come back home too.
Yesterday I saw a rabbit and sped off after it. Is it my fault that Riley followed me? Andrew came running after us, but we just kept going. After running and running, we wandered into the yard of a nice family with little kids, and we had a great time playing with them. I had managed to shed my collar with all ID, but Riley still had his on. Two hours later, while Mom was at work, she got a call from the mail lady saying she had seen us in a neighborhood on the other side of a very busy two lane highway. Mom left right away and had gotten as far as our subdivision when she got a call from the man whose house we were at. I wouldn’t go to her. I figured I was in trouble and this would be a nice family to stay with. I mean, why does she need me anymore, anyhow? She has the cute puppy now. Right? Well, she got me into the truck and I jumped back out. The nice man helped Mom by lifting me back into the truck, then lifting in Riley. Then he had to take the cute puppy off of Mom’s back – yes, really, the little thing is like a monkey – before Mom could stand up.
I think the next step is to believe that a power greater than ourselves can restore us to sanity. I sure hope so. In the meantime, I am grounded. No more off-leash time outside of the fence or house. Oh, and did I already mention that yesterday I lost my pretty red collar with my rabies and name tags? *sigh*
Love with no wiggles, Lucy
I got a new walking vest. You can see my Howloween bow sticking out from under it.
Mommy said I would need all the help I could get to look cute the next time I potty in the house.
Hmmm. I wonder what she meant by that….anyhoo, I’ll show her cute.
I’m sorry, Mommy. I won’t do it again. *paws crossed*
I think that worked! Now it’s play time!
