Edie will be 6 months old on Friday and I took her to the vet on Saturday for her 6 month check-up. Everything is well with her, all the deciduous teeth have gone and she has beautiful pearlies. The umbilical hernia that we knew about hasn't got any worse and the plan is to have it repaired when we spay her or as a stand alone op if we don't spay her. We're still undecided and will wait to see how she copes with her first season.
I took Rosie along too so that she could see how schnauzers should behave when on the vets table
Edie is now taller than Rosie though weighs in at 1.6kg lighter. She is a long legged skinny pup but you can see her shoulders and chest growing larger as she matures. They are the best of friends and always look out for each other. While they each want to play (or eat) with whatever the other has, they are happy to share with no growling or fighting over anything, including raw lamb ribs. They really do just get on.
Edie shows signs of having some goat genes in her. She will attempt to climb anything
Any chairs that are left out from the table have obviously been left for her to use as a base camp for getting onto the table.
The Christmas tree was put up yesterday and while Rosie showed no interest in it last year, she is easily led into trouble by Edie so when they're left alone for a couple of hours in the afternoon, we use her old playpen to barricade the tree.
As you can probably tell, I just love having two schnauzers. Each and every day, they give me so much comfort, love and attention.
