Dogs… man’s best friend. This one is my best friend. His name is Raider and he is a miniature schnauzer. He is an important part of our family showing unconditional love, loyalty, and companionship each and every day.

Orhan Pamuk, My Name is Red
Dogs feel very strongly that they should always go with you in the car, in case the need should arise for them to bark violently at nothing right in your ear.

Loving the Dog Poem…I feel like that too and your doggie is simply adorable…what a life!!! God blessed us with all animals, but doggies are HIS special gift to menkind! Thanks for sharing this. Thank you for your lovely and kind visit, sweet friend.
Loved all of the quotes! If I could be half as wonderful as my dog thinks I am….

I love this post! I truly believe God put dogs (and other animals, but especially dogs) on the earth to bless us humans. My life would be incomplete without my babies…Hunter,a Jack Russell mix and Oscar, an ornery but lovable Dachshund. I always say "dogs are people too!"
Your fur baby is so cute and sweet. Love all the dog quotes. It makes me miss having a dog. xo Diana

What a great post with great pics! We have a Chocolate and a Yellow Lab. They are Rosco and Rhett and they are sweeties. It will be a sad day when they are no longer with us.
Wishing you a happy week!

Looks like Raider is living the good life! I'll bet he thinks he hears the treat jar opening in that last pic:@)
Raider looks like he has the same kind of life my Joey has – relaxed most of the time. Not a care in the world until something outside sparks his attention. And a bark or two. Loved the quotes.

so photogenic, not like my girls at all!
Awwww.. It's just so hot for these little guys! My pets are all just lazing around in the coolest spots they can FIND! I don't have air conditioning, so I do my best to keep their water full and cold, and every fan is running on HIGH!.. A very sweet post! ~tina
Ohhh what a little sweetie! Thanks for visiting the Painted Apron,
hope things cool off soon!
dog gone it this is a cute post 🙂 Love all those quotes and of course Raider is looking very handsome
Fantastic post! I agree with every word.
I'm an animal lover, and I looooooooove this post 🙂
I love your dog too!
loved this. your dog is just adorable!
All the quotes are great and so are your pics. We have a Miniature Schnauzer, too. Dave Barry nailed it down about the barking. Schnauzers just have to bark. My Trudy barks at squirrels, rabbits and other creatures, but she does a moaning begging kind of cry to woo people to come to her. She loves people and they are always attracted to her.
