It’s true, the hubs and I have added to our pack. We have had Lexi for over 8 years now and have talked about adding another pup to the mix for a long time. It never seemed like the right time, but before Thanksgiving the hubs brought it up again and we thought it would be a good chance to give it a shot. He started researching local breeders and we managed to find one in Alvarado, TX (about 3 hours from us) who had a good reputation in the miniature schnauzer world and had a puppy available immediately. We drove up on Sunday, December 2, met the breeder and this sweet pup and obviously didn’t leave without her haha
She is 4 months old, born on July 26 and weighs just over 8 lbs. She is super cuddly so the hubs and I love that. Mia’s fur is super thick and a little wild at the moment. Seemed mean to give her a schnauzer cut in the winter so we left her scruffy haha She has a spunky personality and keeps us (and Lexi) on our toes. The verdict is still out on whether or not Lexi likes her. She seems concerned about her if Mia is whining, but also doesn’t want Mia in her bubble. Guess it will take awhile to adjust. Any words of wisdom (read as encouragement) for us?
You won’t see much of Mia on social media. She is currently at The Mannered Mutt in Willis for training. It is an intensive live-in training for 6 weeks. I’m sad I won’t get to spend all of her “puppy” time with her, but I know in the long run having a well trained dog is going to be good. The hubs and I trained Lexi ourselves and she’s done well, but there are things we wish we would have done differently so Mia is that opportunity.
Mia plus the training was a Christmas gift to ourselves and I think she’s going to be a great addition to our pack!
Until next post…xoxo Becca
