One of my white 3 year old minature schnauzer would always howl like a coyote when you come back home and you and her havent seen eachother in a "long" time. Another story is when i would point a fake gun at her and say "BANG!!!!", she would always fall over and act like she is dead. The last story is we would take the blue hoola hoop out and grab some small chicken cookies for her, we would always hold the chicken cookie on the other side of the hoop so she would jump through it. Her record is 12 inches high.

wow, sirev98, what a smart dog! we are very proud of our dog, the princess. she is a border collie/sheltie mix, who is almost 14 years old! she has a succession of trick she does for us when she is happy, or for guests to show off, including chasing her tail, playing peek-a-boo with her paws, and rolling over...then she stands proudly, grinning like a beauty contestant until everyone claps for her! i think this is adorable!

I've had a TON of pets in my 20 years. We had a Black Lab named Sheba that we had to give away when I was just four or five years old; a Calico cat named Samantha that ran away; a Persian/Himalayan/we don't know what else cat named Harry (my dad insisted that it was spelled Hairy, because he had so much fur); an Italian Greyhound named Eryn; a Beagle named Duchess; a Chihuahua named Riff; a Belgian Malinoias/Old English Sheepdog named Molly; another Black Lab named Shadow; a Tabby kitten named Teddy; and now, a Calico/Tabby named Aglet. And, during all those pets, at some points we had fish (can't remember all those names), a hamster named Vanilla (nicknamed Houdini), and a toad in the back yard my sister named Treavor. So many animal stories, but I'll just tell one. We had our two dogs (Molly and Shadow) on shock-collars (after training them WELL on where their range was, so as not to be cruel to them) in the backyard. Sometimes, when the power would go out, we'd end up chasing Shadow around the neighborhood for HOURS, because she liked to go around and visit every single dog, cat, mailbox, and tree she could find (which was TONS of fun for us, living out in the middle of the woods.) Molly'd just lay there in the backyard, just a foot or so over the line, like it was just so thrilling that she could kill the grass a few feet higher in the yard.

Hello sirev98 Your miniature Schnauzer sounds so cute as well as entertaining. What a delightful animule! My little black Scottish Terrier likes to drive my automobile. He will stand with his paws on the steering wheel and act like he is driving. He did this once for over 100 of the miles!! Of course, I set the cruise control since his little legs will not reach the brake or acceleration pedal. Also, since he does not know the direction, I will gently help him in the turns. But he looks so happy when he is driving the automobile. Another thing he likes to do is to make the friends with the birds. He and the birds are the best of the friends. I also think that at night, when we are all asleeping, that he flies around and watches over the place.

My pet is a hamster, she is my avatar. Her name is Blake, she is one year old last April they usually live from 2 to 3 years only. We don't keep her inside the cage to appreciate her more. When she wants to be scooped up she would stand and raise her tiny arms. She is usually left alone in the house but when we come home she goes out of her hiding place to welcome us with a kiss on any part of our feet. So we are always careful not to step on her because she is so small. In the morning when i wake she also comes out of her corner and stay with me in the kitchen just crawling around sometimes touching my feet, maybe to warn me that she is there and i might step on her. When she is asking for food i would tell her to wait and she would just stay where she is without moving until we give her the food.I am sure she could understand me because whenever i want to check where she is i would call her name and she would come out.
