Fitzgerald: The Miniature Parti Schnauzer

Hello everyone! It's been awhile since I've posted, but you can follow Huxtable on instagram @HuxtableThePoodle to see more recent photos. 

We have a new addition to our family, and his name is Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald Ali Samoht to be specific, we call him Fitz for short (hello all you Scandal fans, lol). But seriously we just liked the name and the nickname and if anyone he's more so named after the football player Fitzgerald, and Ali is after the boxer of course. 

Fitz is a purebred Miniature Schnauzer, and he's.... PARTI COLORED! This was not done on purpose, God just allowed it to happen this way, lol! We were going to get an all chocolate one, but Fitz just had the best, most laid back chill temperament of all his siblings.... it was an easy choice. Fitzgerald is Huxtable's first cousin, and I'm ever so delighted to introduce him to the world!

 Isn't he adorable! This is him the first day, we drove almost 2 hours to get him on Valentine's Day. He's actually my sister's gift to her boyfriend. He loves dogs... she wanted a poodle of course, he wanted a french bulldog, and they somehow gloriously ended up picking a Miniature Schnauzer, lol! I live in a heavily dog friendly neighborhood and I must say I do see mostly guys with them. A guy may think a poodle is too froo froo, but Schnauzers, being in the terrier family, have more so masculine stereotypes. Though I must say poodles are the perfect dog b/c they can be clipped to look like nearly any breed, lol, including schnauzers.

 Schnauzers do this hilarious thing where they lay flat on their stomach with their legs sticking out, it's strange and hilarious, but they all do it. When we first noticed Fitz doing this we didn't know what was going on, but after looking it up we saw that many of them do it. I'm loving that I'm learning specific traits of another breed... it's probably the nerd in me, but I heart knowledge!

 One of the first and last time Huxtable was bigger than Fitz in a pic. Miniature schnauzers are alot bigger than toy poodles of course. They're the size of Miniature Poodles :-)

 Hux violating Fitz's space... seeing if he's really a man, lol, and if he's actually real. Fitzgerald looked like a literal stuffed animal in person, he was soooo tiny, only about 2lbs.

 One big noticeable different between Hux and Fitz is that Fitz is a heavy biter and chewer. Hux never ever chewed on my shoes, like ever. The very first day we got him Fitzgerald begins chewing on my moccasin shoe laces, lol, as pictured here. Oh Fitz! I love him because he's such a "classic dog" he does all the cliche classic dog things like chewing on shoes... which of course is annoying, but also cute to me because he's not my dog ;-) Sorry sis. I think it's just a terrier thing though.
