A thread for Rosie and Edie

The Miniature Schnauzer is a smallest dog in the Schnauzer breed and originated in the mid-to-late 19th Century from Germany. The Miniature Schnauzer is a cross between the Standard Schnauzer and other smaller breeds such as the Poodle. A miniature Schnauzer is a spunky, but aloof dog who does things their own way. They tend to be good guard dogs without the tendency to bite.

Adorable Sam and everything in that photo is colour co-ordinated. I am convinced that if there is any trouble it won't be Edie's fault.... lol. Quite a nervous day for you all. They won't let you down I am sure.

What a lovely picture - hope all is ok when your wife gets home :)
We are all colour co-ordinated Julie - good spot :)

I had a phone call from my wife at lunchtime. We got off very lightly it seems :-bd One small pee left by Edie at the door to the utility room and that was it. Nothing chewed, ripped up or destroyed. What great girls ^:)^

Edie continues to leave little puddles as a welcome for my wife on her return from work. We are changing our situation though. My wife handed her notice in today and will be moving to a new job in 4 weeks time.

She will work afternoons instead of the morning and I will come home for lunch so that Rosie and Edie will only have 4 days when they will be on their own and for only 1.5 hours. We think everyone will be better off with the new arrangements.

I got home from work today, got out of the suit and into something more comfortable and got the girls out for a romp on the nearest beach, Havelet.

Here's a few pics I took on my phone.

I'm SO jealous of having a beautiful beach so close to home to take your pooches to.

When I was a kid, we had a Heinz 57 dog at home that my Dad, who was a Policeman, rescued from the local common (someone had left her tied to a tree when she was about 4-5 months old) - anyway, when you came home, if you made a fuss of her, she would always leave a puddle as a welcome bless her, she never grew out of it :)

Mike,

We're very lucky in Guernsey. The island is only 25 square miles so you're never more than a couple of miles from the coast. After 30 September we can take our dogs onto all the beaches again :)

Yes we're planning to take Sasha (along with Oscar) to her first seaside trip post 30th Sept too, down to either Goring-By-Sea or Camber Sands.

Yeah and what does Barney like least, the beach =)) It has that funny moving stuff that gives you cold feet and doesn't taste right. He does like playing with limpet shells though

We'd a lovely sunny afternoon today so we took the dos down to Chouet beach for a run-around. Despite throwing up in her crate on the way ( and eating it again :ymsick: before I was able to pull over) Edie enjoyed her time with Rosie.

I've had a look at Camber Sands on google earth and it looks beautiful.

Rosie and Edie are in to their second week together in the morning. After realising that Edie couldn't (or won't) last the 4 hours, I picked up a large seed tray from a garden centre and lined it with some of the left over artificial grass. She picked up immediately what it's for :) She's always clean but has never yet been dry. I'm sure that it's only a matter of time and it will all come good as she (and her bladder) grows and matures.

Edie was a real little biter when we first got her but is now less of a nibbler than Rosie was at the same age. I wonder whether it's because Rosie has been teaching her how much pressure she's allowed to use?

One year ago today we picked Rosie up from a breeder near Blackpool and flew her back to Guernsey. She's proven to be wise beyond her years.
