There are Grand Kids and Grand Dogs sometimes the puppies are easier to babysit. Hoss (Skansen’s Hauser Van Schnauzer) is 12 this year and quite the gentleman. Or at least he is until someone comes to visit. Hoss is convinced that people come to visit him. And, he is HAPPY. He gets so excited he wiggles all over and with his size there isn’t an area rug that stays put. The path to the door looks like a tornado. At least he doesn’t have a tail so that’s one weapon not at his disposal
I took care of him last month and what a clown. He takes up his share of the couch and if you get up he will steal your spot. He also gets to the bed first and then guards it. Not in a bad way it’s almost like he’s laughing at you. The first night just as I started to get in bed he booted me with his nose and over I went. But, he’s extremely smart and when I say “enough, you get on your side” he does. And, lays right down.
He’s perfect for me as he’s not a morning guy. So far I’ve been the first to wake up. I know these giants aren’t for everyone but their hearts are big and full of love. He leaves a big hole when he goes home. I’m going to have him next week and I’m looking forward to it.
