Schnauzers do not get black & white

I so enjoyed working with people while selling real estate. This couple were one of my favorite. After showing them “re-sales” I showed them new homes.

It was always necessary to add thing’s to a contract, such as if home is not completed on time for move in date, the builder will pay for them an motel until they can move in. If you have dealt with some lenders and some loan companies you are aware some do not perform according to the contract and people who have a home they have sold and have to move into the new on the move in date can be left in the lurch.

We became very well acquainted while I spent some time contacting the builder, actually the contractor, who left several things unfinished. It took several times of contacting him to get it all done. It was rather like pulling teeth.

I sometimes took my little Archie with me. We got quite a kick out of his incredulas attitude at seeing black people for, apparently the first time. He could not believe his eyes and stared quite impolitely.

What do you do when it’s a dog?

This reminds me of a incident with Coleen when she was just three year’s old. I must write about that sometime.

This has been a doggie tale.

POODLE, PEANUT WATCHE’S

WHILE MARK AND COLEEN PLAY A GAME PEANUT WATCHES. HE WAS A SCRANNY, LITTLE POODLE, NEVER FAT. HE LEARNED QUICKLY THAT COLEEN WAS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE FOOD CHANG. SOMETHING I DID NOT KNOW. SHE TOLD ME MANY YEARS LATER, WHEN I WAS BUSY WITH LAUNDRY OR WHATEVER, SHE WAS CALLED FAT (A LOT) AND ORDERED AROUND. TOO BAD I DIDN’T KNOW. DUFUS WAS A MEAN, OLE BULLY.

I THOUGHT IT WAS BECAUSE SHE WAS THE YOUNGEST, THAT PEANUT THOUGHT HE COULD BULLY HER. HE WOULD NIP AT HER TO MAKE HER MOVE OVER ON THE SOFA. ALTHOUGH IT WAS FUNNY, IT WAS NOT O.K.  I PUT A STOP TO THAT.

SHE,OF COURSE, DID LOVE THAT DOG. I HAD A LITTLE CHAIR, DUFUS HAD A RECLINER. MARK AND COLEEN AND MARK BOUGHT ME A ROUND FLUFFY, FOOT STOOL FOR IT. WHEN PEANUT MISBEHAVED I WOULD TELL HIM, “GO GET ON YOUR FOOT STOOL” AND HE WOULD.

WHEN WE WOULD COME HOME, FROM CHURCH, I WOULD PUT MY TEACHING MATERIAL’S ON MY FOOT STOOL, CHANGE CLOTHES AND PREPARE A MEAL. SOON I NOTICED MY TEACHING MATERIALS WOULD BE ON THE FLOOR. PEANUT WOULD GET ON “HIS” FOOT STOOL AND BARELY NUDGE MY MATERIALS, SLOWLY OVER AND OVER UNTIL THEY WERE FINALLY ON THE FLOOR AND OFF “HIS” FOOT STOOL.”  WHAT COULD I DO?  WHAT I HAD BEEN TELLING HIM, “YOUR FOOT STOOL.”

PEANUT LOVED RIDING THE MOTORCYCLE. I HAD A LITTLE BASKET PUT BEHIND ME AND WOULD SECURE HIM INTO IT. HE NEVER STOPPED BARKING. A HOME PET, NOW “KING OF THE ROAD.” WE DID NOT TAKE HIM ON REAL LONG RIDES.

I KNOW DUFUS TRIED TO COW HIM, HE WAS SO TINY AND ALL WERE TARGET’S FOR DUFUS. WHAT YOU DO NOT SEE, YOU SOMETIMES DO NOT KNOW. IT’S NOT GOOD TO PUT YOUR OWN VALUE’S ONTO OTHERS. OTHERWISE YOU DO NOT SUSPECT THE WORST SENERIO.  ONE DAY DUFUS CAME IN WITH HIS WORK BOOT’S ON AND WAS STANDING BY THE FRONT DOOR TALKING. PEANUT WALKED UP, HIKED UP A LEG AND DID WHAT MALE DOG’S DO. COLEEN AND I ABOUT DIED LAUGHING SO HARD. WAS PEANUT COWED???    ABSOLUTELY NOT!

THE SMALLER THE DOG THE BIGGER THEY SEEM TO THINK THEY ARE OR MAYBE THEY JUST THINK THEY ARE STRONGER. THEY ARE IN CHARGE.

DUFUS ALSO THOUGHT GIRLS DO NOT BELONG IN COLLEGE. I MADE HIM SAVE THE MONEY AND SHE WENT TO COLLEGE! I WAS LATER TOLD THAT HE TOLD COLEEN, “IF YOU GIVE ME WHAT I WANT I WILL BUY YOU A NEW CAR, ANY MAKE YOU WANT.” SCUMBAG!

TACO BELL TACO’S.

Oh! how we little Schnauzers do love, love, love our taco bell tacos! Momma says they are good for us, we eat the shells, tomatoes, lettuce meat and the cheese. Do they have tomatoes? I do not know, we just love eating them. them,

Back when Archie and I were living in my townhouse, I would take him with me on a taco bell run,

I would run any errands I needed to do, stopping by and picking him up a taco, while I ate something. Usually with a order of chili cheese fries. I know, I know, but I did love those cheese fries.

Archie would sit in the front seat next to those cheese fries and taco’s while I was out of the car. He never touched that bag. Such a good dog.

That lasted until my little Ebony joined our little family. Every night when I came home she would have some awful mess for me to clean up. This went on for several months until one evening while scolding Ebony, I happened to see an awareness cross Archie’s face and thought, “oh, no”.

Sure enough! The next day my good little boy doggie had gone bad. Kid’s, since the dawn of time have figured this one out. If miss-behaving get’s attention, I can do that to and so he did.

That cute little schnauzer, Ebony had turned my obedient Archie, slightly to the dark side.

Oh, how we little schnauzers do love our taco bell tacos. mom says they are healthy for us. we eat the meat shells, lettuce, and tomatoes. do they have tomatoes.? whatever we just know we love, love, love, eating them.

SCHNAUZER, TOP REALTOR

ARCHIE WAS MY FIRST SCHNAUZER AND HE WAS  EBONY’S OPPOSITE. WHERE SHE WAS INCORRIGIBLE HE  AUTOMATICALLY DID WHAT A WELL TRAINED PUPPY WOULD DO.

HE WOULD NOT GO INTO MY FLOOR TO CEILING SHELVES TO GET A BALL WE WOULD BE PLAYING WITH.

WHEN WE SOLD THE HOUSE, DURING DIVORCE TIME, JUST HE AND I LIVING IN THE HOUSE, HE LEARNED THE PATTERN QUICKLY.

THE AGENT WHO DID SELL THE HOUSE LATER TOLD ME EVERY TIME  HE WOULD SHOW THE HOUSE, HE SAT ON THE SOFA AND LET ARCHIE SHOW IT FOR HIM.

ARCHIE WOULD START IN THE LIVING ROOM, PROCEED TO FORMAL DINING ROOM, KITCHEN, AND THE REST OF THE HOUSE. HE WOULD LEAD THEM OUT WHEN THEY WERE FINISHED IN THE MASTER BEDROOM. THE COUPLE WHO BOUGHT THE HOUSE, DID ASK FOR ARCHIE TO GO WITH THE HOUSE. OF COURSE, THAT DID NOT HAPPEN.

I HAD NOT KNOWN I HAD A SALESDOG IN THE HOUSE.
