Yep, she’s 3 now! i think in doggy years that 21 years old! So according to all the doggy books, she should be well settled and grown into a mature, calm adult dog. That’s what they say… BUT… she’s still her stubborn, funny, dirt/rubbish/poo-eating standard black Schnauzer self… LOL…
We love her anyways!
She was treated to a doggy birthday cake which was so big i gave it to her for 3 meals! Lexi had cake for breakfast, cake for dinner and then cake for a second breakfast. She loved it, especially the whipped cream bit!
For presents, she was given a big bag of new doggy chicken snack; she absolutely adores chicken, which dog doesn’t. She got a new soft toy in the shape of an octopus; it’s called Octi. And a new bright green ball to chase and fetch.
i will have to say that there is one way to tell that she’s more grown up. She was happy to sit for a photo so we have a nice photo of her with her cake and presents this year!
Yesterday was Lexi’s birthday and she turned 2. In one way, it feels like she has been with us forever, and yet, some days i feel like we just got her not long ago.
So in doggy years, she is considered an adult dog now, no more puppy. Generally, she is very good and such a sweetie. Just sometimes she digs her heels in and doesn’t do what you tell her to, usually when i call her to come and she has decided that it’s not worth the effort… they do say Schnauzers are hardheads (from the German expression ‘hartkopf’).
She still loves to play tug and chase but has mellowed with regards to chasing cats and birds (it does not mean she does not chase them, it just means if i am quick enough to tell her to leave them alone, she does), and she does more willingly leave other dogs alone when they don’t want to play with her.
For her birthday, we bought her a doggy pool (made of special plastic which can withstand the claws of a dog) and some lovely canned food and a new chew snack. i baked her a doggy birthday cake, #crazyforcrust, which she loves.
