Miniature Schnauzer Maxxi
My miniature schnauzer, Maxxi came from a close friend's. She gave birth to 5, after which 1 one them was a total black color schnauzer. The first time I held him on my palm, I fell in love with him, and I decided to bring him back.
Things have never been the same anymore. I had another toy poodle, who is 4 months older than Maxxi at home. But everyone says, I loved Maxxi more because he sleeps with me on my arms every night like a human baby, walks me to the kitchen when it is dark, follows me to the toilet and waits me outside while I take my shower, sits close enough to me when I am watching tv...he loves to get near to me every now and then, like I am walking away.
Maxxi is very dear to me. Whenever I call his name, he responds and will come to me. Sometimes, I get very angry at him for biting things, but when I hold the cane and ask him to come to me, he will bow down and crawl to me. He knew he did wrong thing and he will comes to me for an apology.
One day, I woke up in the middle of the night to the toilet. He woke up, blur enough and followed me to the toilet. He sat quietly outside while waiting for me and went back to sleep together.
While my toy poodle is a little coward, Maxxi is brave enough. He would go to the front when I punish the toy poodle; like he did not want us to hit on his "friend".
Most of my friends and families did not fancy him at all, because he is black and naughty. He loves biting on hands and is very rough. Sometimes, he even got locked up in the cage while the toypoodle gets to be outside because he is more gentle. But to me, Maxxi has more chemistry with me. I loved him dearly, sometimes even more than I loved myself. ;)
