Meet the Neighbors!

Katie and Katja! Two of the funniest, sweetest and most energetic Mini-Schnauzers you ever want to know. Katie and Katja live right next door to Abbie (where I am sitting now). These two have very nice parents as well. They are as close to being their children as it gets. Their mommy and daddy know every detail of their personality and love them as if they ARE their children! I had the pleasure of sitting them in October, while their mommy and daddy traveled to Italy! I was very jealous of all the REAL wine they got to drink, but had a blast taking care of Katie and Katja.
Katie is the talker. She loves to let you know she is there and will bark to her heart's content until you make sure she is noticed! Katja is more mellow. She will look at you with her big brown eyes as if to say 'Pet Me' - but when you do, she squeals as if you are hurting her. I have decided that her 'squeal' is pure pleasure and I just have to be persistent and pet her anyway.
Katie HATES to dress up. If you put anything on her back, she will lay down like a rug and not move. Katja will pretty much let you do anything within reason! So, it must have taken a whole lot of cookies for her mommy to be able to dress her up for Christmas. Oh yes.....They both LOVE treats!
