Last week, the “K” Crew went in to the vet for their booster shots – the whole litter.
They were all calm, cool and collected, for the most part, except for our big boy, Krumpet, who seemed to be shivering out of his skin!
This is just a short video of the car ride to the veterinarian, one of the more rare events in their lives being in the car.
It’s so funny that the biggest of the “krew,” Krumpett, is the most frightened when it comes to new things.
Although he is afraid, it’s rather endearing, in a way, that he is such a baby. This big “bruiser” just wants to be loved up, and can be so unsure of himself in many ways.
They are all like children…unique and special in so many ways. The only thing these pups have in common is their genealogy, and being miniature schnauzers. Each one of them is a true individual that stands apart from the others in the group.
They warmed up to the veterinarian and the assistants rather quickly, and not one of them was uncomfortable or squealed from their injections.
Miniature schnauzers, by breed, are very tough, little dogs that can tolerate quite a lot of pain.
As opposed to our half poodles, who are rescue dogs, feet do accidentally get stepped on at times, and they yelp bloody murder. However, if one of the minis gets their toes stepped on, they just look at you like “well, that wasn’t very nice,” but never let out a peep.
This also goes to show in the way they chase each other and wrestle all day long. They can be rather rough with each other, and just as quickly come to give you tender kisses and shake a paw.
They certainly know the difference between canine and human affection, if trained properly.
From the time they are babies, it is a must to not allow them to nip or try to bite or chew on your fingers, etc. This way, they will be able to differentiate as they grow up that you do not like it when they do this, but you do like it when they are gentle.
* Terrier Tip: When traveling in the vehicle with your pooches, if they are not traveling in crates, you will want to cover your back seat with a blanket or comforter to make their ride, well, more comfortable, and keep your ride a lot cleaner.
Also, make sure you bring some grocery bags and paper towels, just in case there is an “accident” in the vehicle. Animals all react differently to shots and medications they may receive at the vet, and some may even have motion sickness. Be prepared!
