Katie and Katja

I have been with Katie and Katja for a week. They are a unique couple of Mini Schnauzers. I have known them for a couple of years and they always bring a smile to my face. They know their routine. They know what they want and when they want it and that always makes it easy to care for them as they let you know if you are slipping up! Katie is the Grey girl. She is verbal, outgoing and an avid huntress. She can smell a rabbit from 500 yards. She never heads out the door with less than a full speed run. She might seem stand-offish, but she loves a good ear rub and all the attention she can get.
Katja, the black girl is the larger of the two. She is a little more subdued but also loves to chase the rumblings in the bushes. Katja does everything on her own terms and her own time. She needs the perfect spot to piddle and comes only when she is ready. She too likes attention and love, but again, only on her own terms and she lets you know what those are.
They both love their mommy and daddy and have the luxury of having someone home with them all the time.
They were a pleasure to watch and I can happily say everything went smooth as silk!
