My hubby got hold of the camera last night. Let’s see what he decided to capture.
Mr. Zucker. Believe it or not - He is a registered Miniature Schnauzer. His full name is " Schoellkopf’s Guten Zucker. " In English - " Schoellkopf’s Good Sugar. "
The german “ Zucker “ is pronounced with that long “ u “ sound - same as it’s English translation.
Zucker has early stages of arthritis - among other issues that send my blood boiling and make me enemies toward breeders any longer.
I became aggravated by his refusal to step outside to do his business during winter season. We fought with sweaters - boots - you name it. But he was determined. If he had to go out there in that mess - so did we.
Finally - I tried something last year - and the angels blew their horns from heaven above!
I stopped using grooming shears on him in December.
He still gets the ear hairs pulled - those toenails clipped - the eye boogers banished - and faces the comb with the brush.
But we let his winter coat just come along!
This is the first winter Zucker has had somebody to spend the season with - Miss Carly.
And now - I have to “ tone “ the two of them to get them to stop chasing each other over acres and come inside!
On another note - We had a couple days last week that were absolutely gorgeous!
Didn’t take long to get a shot like this. But - looks can be deceiving. It was only 24* outside!
Nope. Winter still has time left on it’s treadmill.
