How on earth has May sped by so quickly! This month has been filled with visiting with friends and family (some from as far away as India!), another birthday come and gone, and a new addition to the family……..meet, August! Three weeks ago, the husband and I brought Auggie home, a now 12-week old miniature schnauzer. Our little guy is already quite attached (as are we), and adjusting quickly to city life. We’re enjoying life with our handsome pup, and the fun and love he adds to our little family. His energy, and wiry terrier coat, remind me of Picasso’s The Dog, from Histoire naturelle by Georges-Louis Leclerc.

The Dogs

Pierre Bonnard (French, 1867-1947), The Dogs, 1893, Lithograph in black on ivory wove paper

We’ve started the search for a new furry family member! Though the husband grew up with a Lab, and I grew up with English Cocker Spaniels, we’re considering starting a new tradition, and are looking for a Miniature Schnauzer. They’re supposed to be great apartment dogs, spirited and playful, yet sweet and fairly relaxed. This weekend we’re meeting our first schnauzer—now to decide if the breed is for us!
