The Furry Shrew I Left Behind
When a couple separates, they are not only divorcing each other but their furry children as well. Pictured above is Jack Shrew, who was born a little over a year ago today. With all that gray hair, he is a spitting image of his Daddy. In fact, the moment I researched miniature Schnauzers ... I knew that Jack and E. Shrew would be perfect for each other. See... Schnauzers think they are the master of the house and that you live to serve them. When I bought Jack as a Christmas present, the million dollar question was... can two Shrew personalities live with each other?
Regrettably, the personality department is exactly where Jack knocks heads with E. Shrew. Sometimes they wrestle for control of who is really the master. They are both so damned stubborn and proud, that it almost always ends up with each giving the other the silent treatment. If E. Shrew drops off Jack at his Grandma's house for an extended period of time, you can be guaranteed that there will be some payback administered. Jack will opt for needing his space and spend time in other parts of the house away from Daddy. E.Shrew will retaliate by threatening to drop Jack's furry little butt back off at Grandma's house if Jack does act more excited to be around him. Ahhh... these attitudinal battle royales between the Shrews brings nothing but laughter and joy to me.
