happy 14th birthday eddie!

Today marks Eddie the Schnauzer's unofficial 14th birthday! I say unofficial because he was roughly two years old when we adopted him and, as of today, it's been exactly twelve years since he came to rescue us.

He did have teeth, once upon a time. And more fur.

He's somewhat adored.

And sometimes bored.  ;)

He's been through it all! Like Thanksgiving with no floor or kitchen!

But that wears him out and makes him want to sleep on my underwear.

He's a great foredog.

Keeping an eye on everything.

And then finding himself in the most ridiculous situations.

He helped me paint my chair...

Sometimes he thinks he's a sheikh.

But that makes him sleepy, too.

He likes to try out the new furniture.

And he tries to sneak in my travel bag.

He loves to drink with Gramma.

And he helped me re-cover my rocking chair...

He's so adorable!

And sweet...

With just a touch of attitude.

But mostly just sweet.

Sometimes wooly...

He likes to play Cards Against Humanity. And cheat.

Gets his nose into everything.

Loves his snuggly bed.

Such a yawn!

He gets hot when he's outside.

Galloping in place, getting nowhere fast, with his ears flapping in the nonexistent breeze.

He's kind of a big deal.

I could do this all day because I have 3,472,846,113 pictures of him.

So I'll leave you with a video of this silly little pup when he had a little more get-up-and-go than he does today.

Happy birthday Eddie! 


  1. Awww, what a little character... love him! Happy Birthday Eddie.

  2. Happy Birthday, Eddie! Lurves you in the pillow!

  3. Oh, sweet Eddie...happy birthday to you!
    What would we do without our funny little guys?
    What kind of cake are you making him, Andi?

  4. Happy Birthday, sweet Eddie!! Seriously, Andi, you have 2 of the best lookin' men on the internet!! Dona

  5. Oh, happy birthday, Eddie!! May you have many more with the people who adore you!! :)

  6. Oh, love all the pictures of your Eddie! Schnauzers are super friends for sure. Your post is awesome!

  7. Great pics Eddie, but I think 14 is too young to play CAH.

  8. AHHHHH so cute. He really loves that leash and then hates that leash. LOL Happy Birthday Eddie...and many more sweet boy!

  9. Eddie, the internet sensation. For good reason.

  10. I played the video and it scared one of my cat. Maybe that'll make Eddie proud? He's so funny, I love seeing pictures of him.

  11. He's so awesome. I have a minature blonde one Jazzmine. She is almost 7 and I pray she lives this long. You are so blessed. Dogs are such great companions.

    1. I love him to pieces! I'll die a thousand deaths when his time is up!

  12. We have minischnauzers too. Our first was Rocky. He was my best friend and helped me through my cancer treatment. He passed away last year and we miss him so much. His mate Adrian and kids Venus & Zeus are still with us, so his legacy lives on.

    1. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss of Rocky. I know how these sweet little dogs can steal our hearts. I'm so happy you have others to comfort you, but it doesn't really fill the void of the lost one, does it? I'm happy you found us, and Eddie says to give you big smooches and he hopes you're in amazing health these days!!


  13. Happy belated birthday Eddie! You're just too damn cute!! Love the picture of you cheating at cards. You little devil! XOXO

    1. Isn't he ridiculous???? We just love him to pieces!
