Rachel & Macy

Who is in the photo at right?

Hello! I'm Rachel, a creative blogger at Like a Saturday, and this is Macy -- our 5 year old mini-schnauzer.

What's the occasion for Coffee with a Canine?

I'm working on my blog schedule and events for the remainder of the year with my trusty assistant (read: master snuggler) by my side.

What's brewing?

I brewed French Market Coffee & Chicory in the French press. It is now in my favorite mug with just a bit of cream and hazelnut syrup.

Any treats for you or Macy on this occasion?

Macy loves her veggies. She's been chomping on a kale stalk.

How did Macy get her name? Any nicknames?

Macy came to us already named. She has a whole variety of nicknames, depending on the occasion. She usually only gets the full name treatment when she gets in trouble for barking at the air.

How were you and your dog united?

A former coworker was having to find new homes for her pets, including Macy, due to a family member's health issues. We adopted her when she was just over a year old.

Who is Macy's best pet-pal?

Once you cross the threshold, you are a friend. My parents have two mini-schnauzers as well, Sam and Tucker. Macy is about 1/3 of their size, but she's the boss lady. She loves play time with the boys. The jury is still out on her new German Shorthaired Pointer puppy cousin, Milo.

Where is Macy's favorite outdoor destination?

We have a fabulous new dog park in our community. There are so many new friends and so much sniffing to be had.

Squeaky toy, ball, stick...?

Tennis ball, giant squeaky Loofa dog, and a tiny stuffed duck.

Cat, postman, squirrel...?

...neighbors, children, air. Schnauzers love to bark at anything and anyone who passes by.

What is Macy's best quality?

Macy is a love bug. She's very friendly and always ready for a cuddle-fest with whoever will join in.

If Macy could change one thing about you, what would it be?

She would have me stay home all day. Snuggled up in bed until 10, snuggled up on the couch till 5, a trip to the dog park, and then back to the couch until it's time for bed.

If Hollywood made a movie about your life in which Macy could speak, which actor should do her voice?

Hmm...maybe Zooey Deschanel?

If Macy could answer only one question in English, what would you ask her?

What in the world is going on in that cute little head of hers.
