It would be nice to be able to talk about Hobie's dog friends. Unfortunately, Hobie is a little short on dog friends now. That's mostly on account of him not being very interested in other dogs.

Instead, we'll mention other dogs we like, and dogs we think Hobie should be friends with.

First up is Rudolf. He is a 10-year-old Miniature Schnauzer.


Rudolf is my family's dog back home. This picture of him is in a forrest near my family's old house. Rudolf is crazy about food, and does not care about toys or playing. A total opposite of Hobie.

Right now, Rudolf has some back problems. One of the discs in his spine is not alligned. The vet has said there's nothing that can be done, and Rudolf gets pain medication when it gets bad.

He's a very sweet dog, and enjoys laying in someone's lap watching TV.

I think Rudolf and Hobie would get along well, mostly because they wouldn't get in each other's way. Hobie would be playing with toys, while Rudolf would just lay in someone's lap.

Hobie joke

I got this from a coworker.

Q: What is Hobie's favorite type of logic?
A: Circular logic

I was waiting with Hobie outside a coffee shop while a coworker grabbed some coffee. In just a couple of minutes we had been approached by several people.

One of them petted Hobie, and grabbed his beard (and I didn't hear any growling!), another one took a picure of Hobie and showed me pictures of his schnauzer, and a couple of other people commented on him, or just plain talked to him.

Working dog

Hobie came with me to work today.

He must recognize the area around the building I work in, because when we were about half a block away he started to get excited and spin in circles. One woman got a little worried because it looked like he was walking right at her. When we got to the building door he was pulling fairly hard to get in.

He even whined a little bit in the elevator.

I take his collar off when we're at work, because it jingles (he has two metal tags, one for his license, and one with his name and phone number). I fed him and got him water, but he started pacing around the office.

Turns out he was looking for a toy we have there - a yellow screaming thingy. It's a yellow thing that makes an annoying screaming thing if you throw it. By the end of the day he had collected three of those.

My co-worker brought her dogs also, a whippet and a greyhound.

Hobie got so much play-time. A few of my co-workers enjoy playing with him, and get very happy if he brings the toy back to them instead of me (which is usually what happens). One of my female co-workers desperately wants to pet Hobie, but whenever she gets close he kind of freezes and isn't really sure what's going on. That's usually followed by a little growl.

Overall. though, I think Hobie had a great time. He did seem a little tired walking home, but by the time we got home (and he got fed) he's back to his usual hyperactive self.
