Getting The Look From Our Schnauzer

Dixie our two year old Mini Schnauzer normally gets under the bed while the vacuum cleaner is running.  On this particular day she opted for the bedroom chair, sitting there giving my wife the look of hurry up mom!  It was just too good not to grab the camera and get the photo.  Hope you enjoy "The Look" as much as we did.

John, we've got two mini schnauzers and I recognize that look!  They have so much personality, don't they? Thanks for sharing, have a great Wednesday.

Hi Erika,

Oh yes the famous Mini Schnauzer look.  Once you've had it you don't forget it. We really enjoy Dixie and her human like characteristics as am sure you do with your two.  Make it a great day in Utah!

Ahhhhh...the dreaded "look"   lol.   Rodney, our mini aussie has a knack for laying right WHERE the vacuum needs to go.  Enjoy the day!

Hi John~ Dixie is adorable! Our best four legged friend Cooper gives me that same look when I talk to him about going somewhere. What an empty space there would be in our lives if we didn't have pets!

Best regards from Seattle,

Hi John. ..... Oh we know The Look all too well.  Janet and I have been huge Mini Schnauzer fans for years.  They are great companions and train so easily.  Great photo of Dixie giving The Look... LOL.

There's definitely a look of intensity in her eyes. She means business too. I do hope she brings you and your family lots of joy because I think she looks like the perfect companion.

Someone needs to invent a silent vacuum cleaner. I never found a dog that wasn't bothered by it. It has to be the sound. Or maybe that sixth sense of that tells them that if they don't move, they will be sucked up into the vacuum cleaner, just like their hair.

She's a cutie!

John, It looks like Dixie is ready for your wife to turn that vacuum cleaner off.  Aren't pets great?  I don't know what I'd do without my dog, Bailey the Boxer.

Hi Karen~ A mini Aussie they are cool.  Dixie is pretty good about staying out of the way, unless there is a treat involved.  Had a great day and hope you did as well.  Thanks!

Hi Judi~ Cooper is a cutie, the name seems to fit him well.  Oh when the word Go For A...Anything ie Ride, Truck, Walk, Bike she ready to roll.  Agreed life would have a hold if were not for our 4 legged friends.  Have a good evening.

Hi Sam & Janet~ They really are great companion pets and so want to be a part of every little thing we do.

Hey Pat~ I agree they just don't like all that noise coming out of that thing we push around all too often.  Glad we have her to keep us on our toes and out for walks.  Thanks for coming by!

Sandy~ Oh I love Bailey the Boxer what a great name, I bet Bailey has some stories to tell.  Have a great week ahead!

Is that your favorite chair?  HAHAHAH!  You know, he was looking at you making sure you wouldn't make him move!

Maggie... Oh yes Dixie is known for the looks she can give.  She was probably thinking hurry up Mom and turn that darned thing off it's too noisy... LOL

Chris.... Actually it is the bedroom chair I sit in to put on my shoes.  And indeed it never fails that Dixie stands up for a morning belly rub when I'm done with my laces.

John, great shot. Our Golden hates the vacuum cleaner and wants to get in my lap for safety. We manage somehow. She comes from anywhere in the house to tell me that Daddy is vacuuming and that awful machine is after me! Great shot!

Jeanean.  Its seems a common thread that most dogs just do NOT like vacuum cleaners.  She will often give a good what for though.  Thanks for sharing in the fun!
