These are our 2 adorable miniature pinschers (a.k.a. minpins). Hunter is the black/rust you see on your right (born 5/21/98) and Bailey is the chocolate/tan on your left (born 10/14/98). They each have a story about their puppyhood and where they came from, so they asked us to create a page where they could tell everyone about themselves...
Hi! I'm Hunter. In this picture I was 2 months old and only 1.3 lbs. I originally came from Texas and was taken away from my litter too young at only 7 weeks old. I was shipped directly to a pet store in Oklahoma where I stayed for only 5 days. Then I was shipped to another store in New York where I also stayed only 5 days. But mommy & daddy rescued me from the last store and I was so happy! They weren't told how sick I was and didn't know that only a few days after taking this picture I was going to have to be rushed to the doggie emergency room. The doctor told mommy & daddy that I was in glucose shock because I didn't have enough nutrition. I was too scared, homesick and confused to eat.
Here I am after getting over the glucose shock and the kennel cough that I thought would never go away! I'm about 4 months old and 3.5 lbs. in the above pictures. Don't I look so healthy and big? (Hey, that's big for a tiny minpin like me!) Now that I was healthy, mommy & daddy felt I needed a playmate. They didn't want me to be lonely when they weren't home...
Hi! I'm Hunter's new younger brother Bailey. Mommy loves Bailey's Irish Cream and thought it would be such a cute name for a chocolate puppy like me. I'm lucky enough to have come from a good home in Minnesota. My original mommy was real nice & loving. I understand that she couldn't keep me so that's why she searched and found my new mommy & daddy. I'm so happy she chose them because I love Hunter and they are too good to me. The above photo was taken on my 1st day home. I was already 3 lbs. at 10 weeks old. That's double what Hunter was! I guess I'm the bigger younger brother! :) It comes in handy when I chase him around the house!
Here are 2 cute photos taken recently. I'm about 11 weeks old in them. Mommy & daddy only have me a few weeks now. But they'll be taking a lot more photos of me.
Top Ten List of Things We Like To Do:
#10- Playing stupid when mommy & daddy call us. (For all you amateur puppies out there, tilt your head to the side, bat your big puppy-dog eyes and look like you need a hug).
# 9- I love those breath tablets they give me for my stinky breath. They sure taste great!! (This one's Hunter's).
# 8- Underwear, bras & socks rule!! (We don't know what mommy's talking about when she says daddy's feet stink).
# 7- Going outside and getting all the attention from everyone. We're always told that we're the cutest puppies anyone's ever seen!
# 6- Chewing...everything! The carpet is delicious, but not nearly as tasty as the wee-wee pad. We love playing with Mr. Hanky too.
# 5- Licking toes (we still don't know what mommy is talking about...) then giving lots of kisses.
# 4- Munching on those hard, cold, wet, crunchy things that mommy & daddy call ice-cubes. Brrrr!
# 3- Our daily exercise routine, the MinPin 500. That consists of 500 vigorous laps around the coffee table. It keeps us fit & trim.
# 2- TREATS!! Enough said.
# 1- Sleeping, whenever possible.
