Oh, no, is it time for my bath?
Gypsy is very good about a bath, but she does not particularly like the bath, and will not volunteer. When I get the tub ready and say, "Gypsy, bath time!"....she runs and hides behind the coffee table. When I bathe her, if I have to leave the bathroom to get something she will stay right still in the pan and not try to jump out. She rarely tries to shake the water off until I have towel dried her, and then she goes ballistic through the house.
She loves her walk! During her walk she is Queen. If we come upon a huge dog (like a Rottweiler) she goes into full "attack mode bark" and appears to be vicious, until she gets close. She then "bumps noses, sniffs, and walks away, as if to say, "there, I told him!"
Gypsy is the typical Mini Schnauzer. If she wants to play, you play. If she does not want to play, fageddabowdit, cause it ain't happenin'. Same with time on the lap. If she wants "up" she will climb into my lap, but if she isn't interested, she has her own unique way of snubbing me and finding her own spot.
To make her comfortable I bought a doggie bed, and she slept in it for months until one day she decided the sofa was more to her liking. The doggie bed now collects dust in the closet!
NOTE FROM LINDA AND MAX:
Gypsy sounds like a fantastic dog - can you upload a picture of her? There wasn't one with your email!
