Meet Oreo!

It's been so long since I've blogged I don't think I've said anything about our new addition. In October of last year we decided to get a dog. We've always had a dog, so after losing Bentley 18 months ago, we got the itch. Paul, Jenn, Dan and I went to an outdoor craft show and Jenn & I ran into a lady with a miniature schnauzer. Cutest thing!! Paul and I had a miniature schnauzer back in the 80's and my mom used to breed them so we knew they didn't shed. 
So I started searching online and came across a breeder who breeds schnauzers, poodles and Schnoodles! I'd never heard of a Schnoodle before. I discovered they're a mix of a poodle and a schnauzer and this breeder recently had a litter of them! The mom was a 9 lb miniature schnauzer and the dad was a 6 lb miniature poodle. With my skin issues I need a small dog so the shelter isn't an option for us (although I did search the local shelters for a couple of months but they all said they couldn't guarantee a small dog). 
We contacted the breeder and picked up our little guy on Paul's birthday, October 5th. He's so smart and LOVES everyone. 
Meet Oreo..

The little white stripe on his back is why we named him Oreo. 

I have a feeling Ethan and Oreo are going to be great friends! 

Tuckered out..those widdle feet!! 😍

So those photos were all from October when he was 8-10 weeks old. 

He's now 6 months and weighs 7.5 lbs. and we love him to pieces. 

Loves the snow! 

and loves to play catch! 

He went to the groomer for the 1st time. 

As always...thanks for stopping by.


  1. Oh my goodness!! Oreo is precious. I bet he is so much fun. I have never heard of a Schnoodle either. He is adorable!

    1. Thank you. He is adorable and fun. A lot of energy for these old folks LOL.
