Hurry Hurry get your Calendars!

Update-Looks like I am out of calendars, dropped a few into the mail today, and the rest will go as payment arrives, should have them all to those that requested one by the end of the month.  Hope everyone enjoys them.

I have 2012 Calendars! They are lovely, glossy quality photos, composed of photos that have appeared on the Blog as well as some that I have never posted. Calendar 'open' dimension from top to bottom is 17" and 11" wide.  In the photo above August is shown open so you can visualize the finished product.
Photos include Pups, Golden Oldies both Black Schnauzers and Pepper & Salt Schnauzers, ears natural and cropped.  No Show photos, just beautiful shots of Standard Schnauzers doing what Schnauzers do best, being our pets.

I have a couple that I have pre-printed, I could pop them in the mail immediately if you would like one by Christmas.  I can also order more if I get enough requests and have in the mail in the New Year, so long as I receive your request within the next two weeks.

*CORRECTION* error on original invoicing, sorry.  Price is $20 including postage & envelope for Canadian orders, $21.50 to send to USA.

Calendars are $25 (see above for price correction) that includes postage & envelope in Canada, haven't worked out a cost to the USA but could get a price if anyone south of the border is interested.

I am not looking to go into the publishing business, just thought a few folks that visit the blog, or have Dinsdale dogs themselves might enjoy a purely 'Standard' Schnauzer Calendar for their walls.  If there is no response then I will not order anymore for printing.  So let me know soon! :-))

Email me at dinsdale@eagle.ca for details....Oh and for fun, the first 2 people to contact me will get a free Calendar :-)  Only Canadian or USA eligible for the free calendar fun offer.

Sweet, sweet and sweet

 Yep, she's back on the blog, the sweetest schnauzer ever, Hazel.  Dogs present us with so many different personalities and Hazel has been, since puppyhood, the most sweet natured schnauzer I have owned.  She isn't confrontational, not particularly cheeky, she isn't dominant (which doesn't necessarily make her a wuss) she is respectful (probably a bit too much so with some of the older girls) funny and playful, wonderful when we have young pups in the house, she has always been super trustworthy with pups and small dogs.  The only time I see her *bitchy* side is when she is in season, the noises she can produce when a boy even looks at her, well lets just say it seems to cool their advances pretty damn fast.
Here are some photos taken today of the worlds sweetest schnauzer.

OK Olive you are Super Yummy Sweet too
  Hmmm....Daisy??  OK, ok, today you are number three on the Sweetness Scale

Tis the season to be.....

                                               ......happy???  I picked up a bunch of seasonal hats & scarfs to dress the dogs up for some seasonal fun photos.   Hope promptly laid down on the sofa and asked me to kill her quick before she died of embarrassment.  Anyone that tells you dogs do not have a sense of self, show them these photos of Hope.

Monday wanderings

 Sunday was spent clearing all the garden beds and putting them to sleep for winter.  I ventured out with my garden shears afterwards to continue with the task of trying to keep the wild perimeter of the property from it's never ending attempt to swallow up the land.  I chopped and pulled a ton of wild grape ivy from the now leafless branches of the trees it is trying to consume. Once done I putting the cuttings to use wrapping and weaving them into rustic garden wreaths.

We have an old Balsam at the side of the driveway that needs to be removed, I have a feeling that if we don't have someone come in to take it down, soon the winter elements may do it for us.  The moss and lichen growing on it are very beautiful to photograph.

Bubbles' in the sky

A quick photo taken by Mick last night.  It's crazy amazing what is in the night sky that our eye cannot see.  Below is an explanation of the Bubble Nebula:

Called the Bubble Nebula, this eerie, translucent sphere is created by fierce winds from a superhot star 40 times the size of our sun. Moving at nearly 4.5 million miles per hour, stellar winds whip the cloud of gas around the star into a near-perfect bubble, which stands out from the rest of the more stationary gas in this emission nebula.
Located 7,100 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cassiopeia, the bubble is about 6 light-years in diameter and glows pink because of the red, hot gas that surrounds it.

Living in the moment

There are many lessons our dogs can teach us, Mersey demonstrates living and enjoying the moment.

Vermin Control

 While I was washing windows today Mersey was hunting vermin, rats with furry tails, the red devil squirrels.  Sadly she didn't catch any, but she shows fine 'pointing' skills.

Canadian show jumping horse Hickstead dies

I was so sad to hear of the death of show jumping SUPER stallion Hickstead yesterday in Italy.  Hickstead and his Canadian rider Eric Lamaze won Olympic Gold in Bejing in 2008.
One of the greatest show jumping teams, heck I even named one of my dogs Hickstead in his honour.

November Skies

The end to a beautiful weekend

What a colourful world


 This morning the house seemed dull, Olive was bored.  This is her 'Why are you so B-O-R-I-N-G?' face that she gives me when I am on the computer too long.  I grabbed the camera and off we went to see what was going on outside.

Woohoo!  Talk about vibrant.  
We explored a far area of the property that I never seem to get out to and look what we found...colour, light and....
Vines of berries growing up trees
Apples chewed and stashed by squirrels
Mushrooms growing in the Spruce branches...kind of weird??
The occasional shaggy schnauzers
More vines and seed pods growing over abandoned lawn chairs, I told you I seldom get out to this area :-)
The Hazel tree caught glowing in the Autumn light.  

I cannot believe how lucky we are to have these gorgeous November days, I know it can't last forever so I am signing off the computer for a few days to enjoy it.  Have a wonderful weekend.
