Welcome to the World, Baby Girl!


Meet Avery.  Also know as ‘Avie Baby’.  She is a black Miniature Schnauzer with one white foot.  She loves to be cuddled, plays fetch with a small tennis ball, loves people, and is very sweet.  She also sleeps seven hours a night with no problems (Yay!).

Products that I couldn’t live without: Fresh Patch, the Chilly Bone for teething puppies, and padded bolster crate bed.  Also, these adorable chipmunk toys.

Want more pictures?  Follow my Instagram.  It’s about to be all puppy pics.

    Congrats! I rescued my puppy (well, now very large dog) 2 years ago and can honestly say, there is nothing like coming home from a long, hard day knowing that my pup will always be there, tail wagging and excited to see me. Plus she never judges, so matter what stupid thing/mistake I may have made at work. Nothing like unconditional love to make me happier. Enjoy your new love!

    My partner and I have two Mini Schnauzers; they are the best dogs! I’m going home tomorrow after a 6-week work trip and can’t wait to be reunited with them. 🙂

    My dog LOVES his tree trunk and chipmunk toys. There are several variations including a bee hive with bees and several animals with hidden eggs inside. I love that you can get replacement eggs (my dog has a classic find and destroy mentality about squeaking toys). These toys have out lasted every other stuffed toy, and keeps him occupied and away from destroying other things.

      These really are the best toys. My yorkie was OBSESSED with her chipmunks and tree trunk.

    Adorable, but I hope you didn’t get her from a pet shop aka puppy mill…responsible low-volume breeders or rescues are the only humane way to get a puppy.

      Low-volume breeder. I wanted to rescue, but I put my name on the list, and since I needed a hypoallergenic dog and wanted a girl, I hadn’t had any luck with the shelter.

    Congrats!! She’s adorable. I adopted a puppy earlier this year and by far, it is the best decision I made. Dogs really are the ultimate best friends.

    I grew up with a mini Schnauzer- their personalities are so much fun (as I’m sure you know!). 🙂
