Pet Update

When we first brought JoJo home, I did regular posts on how things were going. Now that he's out of his puppy stage (THANK GOODNESS...so much pee and so many chewed on things), there's just not as much to share. But, since it's been awhile since I've shared about both JoJo and Shanny, I figured it'd be a good time to give a little update.

Where do I even begin with my sweet girl? I've had her for a little over 5 years, and she's around 8 or 9 years old. She weighs about 17 pounds, so she's on the bigger side of the Miniature Schnauzer spectrum. She loves sitting in the window in our living room, watching over the neighborhood. I swear she was a cat in a previous life!

I'm starting to see some subtle differences in her that let me know that she's getting to be an older gal which of course makes me a little sad. But, she still holds her own with her bubba of a brother, so I know she's still in good health and will be around for awhile.


He is the funniest, sweetest, craziest dog I've ever met. He has more energy than any of us know what to do with, but he is also the cuddliest, sweetest baby there ever was. JoJo is a mama's boy and my little protector. He will be 2 in January and is 60 pounds of love.

JoJo LOVES his Shanny Mae, and she does a good job of tolerating him. He helps keep her young and active, but she lets him know when she's had enough of his shenanigans. Another point of note about JoJo...he can jump SO HIGH, like a solid three feet straight up. He could jump up and head butt me if he wanted to...don't worry he doesn't :)

Dogs (and cats too) are awesome, and I thoroughly believe that having a pet makes the world a brighter, happier place. I'm also a firm believer in adopting from a shelter and NOT going to a breeder. There are too many lovable pups that need homes that currently live in a shelter and not with a family.

So tell me, do you have a pet? What kind?



  1. Your babies are getting so big! If you ever want to get together for a doggy play date, let me know, my two have boundless energy, I'm always looking for ways to tucker them out :)

  2. love love LOVE my grandpups!!!!
