Did someone say
Greta with her paper
Mine, mine, mine!

This is my Greta, a 4 year old, salt and pepper Miniature Schnauzer.

Greta came into our lives at a time when we really needed a pet and she's so much more than just a pet.

This girl is SMART. Greta knows the names of each of her many toys (see picture) and will dive to the bottom of her toy box to get the requested buddy. Greta can tell time especially when it comes time for Grandma to dole out the Yogurt treats - when Wheel of Fortune comes on - or when Momma should be pulling into the driveway.

She LOVES. I get "ambushed", what this means is she'll bound up on me while I'm on the sofa - and not paying attention to her - and nibble my nose and bombard me with kisses. When she's being punished with a withholding of affection, she'll do everything to make me cuddle her to say she's sorry.

On Duty. From fur-buddies and their owners to trades people in the complex there is a different bark and/or body language - and I'm now an expert on reading most of these attitudes. Evening potty breaks she'll dash out the door, stop and bark and wait for any response from surrounding canine friends.

She follows my lead. Sitting and enjoying the day in the garden or an impromptu walk to a neighbor's without a leash, she sticks to my side.

Love me/Love my dog. I don't have children, but I am a parent to this little girl. That means if she's outside warning me that there is someone or something nearby and I hear "Shut Up" I get the same reaction as any parent and want to knock your lights out (I have such a neighbor).

None like her!

Greta is a stitch! Such a dog I've not known before. Just like her Momma, this little character is full of spirit, light-heartedness, friendliness, and a sense of adventure! She is full of love to share with just about everyone who shows attention to her. My 4 year old daughter especially adores Greta... they both are little princesses after all!

I remember taking care of this baby girl when she was just a puppy and yes she is very smart!!!!! Trying to get her back in her crate could be a real challenge......of course treats were a sure thing. She was a sweetie pie then and sure sounds like one now. Hugs and kisses to Greta.
