Newly shorn

My gorgeous Fiddle...newly sheared.  I struggled over doing this and finally decided that instead of always being shaggy but wiry I would rather her be clippered and neat looking.  Coarse stripped coat, or, clipped right down, Fiddle looks pretty.
Fiddle is Mick's girl, he hasn't seen her yet, looking forward to seeing what he thinks tomorrow when he arrives home.

Beautiful Ontario

 When Frodo's owner gave me the permission to post a few photos from his Flickr account I had no idea I would have such a hard time choosing 1 or 2 wow, what beautiful photos,  here are my SEVEN favorite shots starring Frodo.
Sometimes living in Ontario we become envious of all the beautiful places outside of our Province, our Country, these photos made me step back and appreciate what an absolutely gobsmacking, beautiful place we live in.

I encourage visitors to click on the Flickr link and visit Tom's other photos.

Eight year old Frodo is a litter-brother to my Fiddle.

Cozy morning

We have had a real turn in the weather, previously crazy sweaty heat and humidity to brisk cool, dare I say Autumnal, morning today. Daisy snuggles down into the new dog bed unaccustomed to this sudden change in weather.

August Rose

I bought a couple of climbing roses early this summer. Generally I stay away from roses, or they stay away from me by dying :-( I wanted a climbing yellow rose for the garden fence, this was suppose to be yellow. I was disappointed at first but have come to appreciate this salmon coloured beauty (it does have a yellow center) the scent is amazing. Not sure if it will still be around come next year, given my past with roses, but for now I will enjoy this flush of blooms.


It's true I have a 'thing' for schnauzer noses, I confess, I go weak in the knees, turn to putty when I see a wonderful, rubbery, sublime schnauzer nose. Mersey possesses the most perfect schnauzer nose of all. It's true, I can't say enough, or, get enough of this wonderful black piece of perfection...enough said.

Our (belated)Birthday Girl

Olive is a year old...yesterday, I am always a little behind. She is affectionate and fun, our youngest puppy Poppy LOVES her best, well her and Hazel, both of whom enjoy endless puppy play. She can be bubbly and enthusiastic, but definitely has a very soft and sensitive side. I see lots of her mother in her physically, however temperamentally she is very different from Fiddle, more like her happy father. Big Happy Birthday wishes to all her litter-mates. Below are a photos recently recieved from the owners of some of Olives littermates. If anyone else has a recent photo of their Fiddle & Beamish Birthday pup send along and I will post here. This is Clover And the wicked smiling Bea Ailis looking beautiful in her newly stripped coat And this would be Chaos The Handsome Ryder

Old Barns

I am feeling a bit like a frustrated farmer lately constantly dreaming of moving to a property with lots of acreage and a beautiful barn. In the meantime I love photographing old barns in the area.

Ahh Summer....time to relax

It is always fun to receive updates from folks that own one of my schnauzers. What never ceases to amaze me is when these owners run into each other. I have had several updates this year that included Dinsdale Schnauzer owners meeting on the street, at parks at their local Petsmart. Such a small world we live in. Below is a little update about Ozzie (pictured above) doing what we all should be doing this summer.

Hello Lori,

First of all I would like to apologize for not keeping in touch and updating you on how Ozzie is doing. Well he is doing just great, he has been a welcomed member to our family. He has such a great personality plus wants to meet everyone he encounters on his daily walks. He has the look, he will be on the couch or hanging off the foot stool and you will feel the stare down knowing it is time for the walk. It was on one of our walks we ran into another Dinsdale dog, Hugo and his family who also lives in Sherwood Park. It has been such a rarity to see another standard in our area and for it to be one of your pups. This is such a great breed of dog and I would like to thank you again for allowing us to experience what is like to have one of your dogs. Here are a couple of pictures from the lake and Oz in his favourite thing the boat, loves to bark instructions to the skiers plus get into the water with family .

Cheers to Ozzie's owners for taking the time to share photos and update me on their boy.

Beach Baby

Poppy finds a beach prize, from the look of her ears this wasn't decaff! Tuesday Hexe had a swimming lesson..... Apparently by Thursday she had forgotten it. Poppy obviously decided Hexe wasn't taking her down and flees, such noble loyalty to her big friend. Looking for something to retrieve Fun in the waves Why did you bring the worlds most annoying pup along???

We have a name

She has gone through several names over the last month, mostly I called her 'Puppy' last night I started calling her 'Poppy' and she of course responded to that immediately. So, let me introduce our newest little 'flower' Poppy.

This morning Hexe and I had the beach to ourselves, boy did we have fun. I think it is fair to say that Hexe is SOOO over her pups now!
