Whoa-lly Crap! Dandy Dog

For a while now, Anie & I have been discussing what kind of dog we want to own when we co-habitate (whoa, big step, I know, but that’s a whole other story…).

One of the themes that comes up often, though not as often as I’d hope, is owning a schnauzer (sp?).  My primary interests are because I imagine educated people with dens and wall-to-wall bookcases own schnauzers.  Also, I like to imagine I could teach it to smoke a pipe and talk like Sherlock, or at least Mr. Peabody.

Then today I saw this bad boy:

dapper dog

I am 142% sure I need to own this guy.
Well, I say “own” but how much can anyone really own a dog that knows how to wear a top hat, monocle AND smoke a pipe?  Shoot, I don’t even know how to smoke a pipe.

I need to convince this dude to move in with me.  I’ll even pay his half of the rent as long as he wing-mans for me on walks.

    I have a feeling that’s a schnoodle there, and not a pure-bred schnauzer. But what do I know. All I can say is this: We licked out on our schnoodle because he is an awesome dog. We rescued him from a Tucson terrier rescue place and he got mixed into that. To this day, I have no clue why the owners gave him up–he’s potty-trained, he’s active when we want him to be, he’s calm when we want him to be, he doesn’t shed, he’s got personality, he can catch a frisbee if we really taught him how…oh and he sometimes dresses up like the above mentioned or he dons his baseball jacket around the house.

    We call him Jackson, but he’s SIR Jackson to you. : )
    Let me know when you want to meet him to get a feel.

    Now let’s talk about this shacking business…; )

      1.) Rescues FTW
      2.) if that is a schnoodle, that’s a solid point for them in my book
      3.) Jackson as in Reggie Jackson. Wow, that’s amazing. I want a dog named after a Yankee legend.
      4.) If I did get a schn-anything, I’d probably name it Kafka, or Franz, or something deeply German like that.
