Meet Maxie Delmar . . . Mini Schnauzer Extraordinaire

Mini Schnauzer Maxie Delmar
Well, I’m a Mini Schnauzer and I’ve been told that I’m extraordinary…

My name is Maxie… I’m also known as Max. I was born on October 21, 2005, so I’m not such a young pup anymore… I take a lot of naps these days but I can still muster up the energy to be frisky now and then. My fur is a handsome salt-and-pepper color, and, in some light, I look all silvery. Most folks call me gorgeous, and I have to admit that they’re right.

I’m really a very social schnauzer. I love people, and I love to greet them with hugs and kisses… but I hate it when I get scolded just for barking or jumping up to say hello. Sometimes I have to sit-stay or down-stay (that’s Mini Schnauzer for “time-out”) because I’ve been, well, too exuberant… sit-stay is no fun at all.

Judy and Robert adopted me when I was only 8 weeks old — I was their Christmas present to each other that year. I live with them in a condo in lovely Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida — just a few minutes away from the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a little lake behind my place that I can see from my sun porch. There are ducks and geese and turtles to bark at. All and all, I’m a Mini Schnauzer who’s got it pretty good. Some folks might call me a pampered pup, and I guess I’d have to agree with them.

Meet Miss Maggie

Maggie, Toy Mini SchnauzerA few months ago, Judy and Robert surprised me with a baby sister. Her name is Maggie, and boy is she a tiny diva! She’s a Toy Mini Schnauzer, so she’s going to be smaller than I am — about half my size, actually. Even though she’s little, she thinks she’s the boss of me. Maggie wants to play all the time. She’s always taking my toys and running away so that I’ll chase after her. And boy can she wrestle!

I’m a very good big brother. I let Maggie jump on me and chew my ears. I share my toy box full of squeakies and snugglies and chewies with her. I never complain when she hides things under the bed where I can’t reach them. I even share my teddy bear. I’ve curled up with Teddy under my chin every day at nap time for as long as I can remember. Whenever Judy says “Go get your baby…,” he’s the one I fetch. I let Maggie sleep with Teddy under her chin whenever she wants. I’m such a good big brother.

Well, that’s just a little bit about two extraordinary Mini Schnauzers — Maxie and Maggie. Now that you’ve found your way to, I hope you stay a little while and enjoy your visit.

If you must be going, well then… it was nice meeting you. Come again soon!
