Our new family member – Jett (ne Shania)

Our new family member – Jett (ne Shania)

Toby just didn’t work out – he was hand shy and wouldn’t let us touch him let alone pick him up – I believe that if you can’t carry your dog you shouldn’t have him or her. So the breeder came by, took Toby back with her (for some serious socialization training) and dropped off […]

Jett, a new member of our family

Jett, a new member of our family

We want to get another dog; dogs are pack animals and we think Iggy would like having a second dog, and another dog would get all the love and food and care they could desire.  The breeder that sold us Iggy has a smaller 11 month old female, Sissie – she brought her over today […]

The schipperke party

Yesterday we took Iggy to a schipperke party. Yes, that’s right – there were 24 schipperkes in one place! So adorable! The dogs were all very well behaved, played and lounged together. Iggy won the award for “Best Dressed!” The pot luck was great, we made pizzas with fresh basil, all the food was really […]

Iggy, are you going to chew that thing? (video)

Iggy, are you going to chew that thing? (video)

Iggy is a very submissive dog – I’ve never had a dog so willing to go on his back before. Here, he’s got a bully stick (that’s dried bull penis in case you didn’t know, much better for dogs than rawhide, unfortunately a lot more expensive too) in his mouth but he’s just laying there. […]

Iggy chasing his leg

Iggy chasing his leg

Basil used to chase his leg when he got excited – breeders have the tails docked on schipperkes when they are very very young puppies because its a breed standard; schipperkes have curly-q spitz tails naturally. I think this practice originated with the canal boats to keep the tails from getting caught in lines; you […]

My new wedding ring and another shot of Iggy

My new wedding ring and another shot of Iggy

I love titanium wedding rings – they are light and typically of modern design.  But, my old one was getting a little tight and, due to its design (a small diamond leaving a hole in the back) I was getting dermatitis underneath. So we bought me a new ring (also titanium): I also took a […]

Iggy! Our new puppy!

Iggy! Our new puppy!

Our beloved dog Basil died three weeks ago, and we just couldn’t be without a schipperke. We contacted all the schipperke breeders in southern California and found two puppies. One of those pups is Jake, who is now Iggy (yes, after Iggy Pop) and a member of our family! A made a little video aggregate […]
