“My husband and I had been married for about a year and I wanted a dog. I wanted a dog for a while.
Thanksgiving weekend we were at my parent’s home on Long Island and he said, do you want to look at dogs. It shocked me because I didn’t think he was ready for a dog.
We ended up taking a drive to a local kennel on the island and he was actually the one who picked out Seymour.
He grew up with Miniature Schnauzers, so he was partial to the breed.
Seymour crawled right into my husband’s lap. He was mellow, gentle and affectionate, but also playful with the other puppies.
We spent two days going back to the kennel for about three hours each visit. We wanted to make sure he was the right dog for us and it wasn’t an impulse purchase.
His affectionate personality suited us.
I think the hardest time was fitting him into our lifestyle.
Our top priority is making sure that he’s well taken care of and that he’s physically and emotionally healthy.
We spent the first six months making sure we were home from work to walk and feed him.
It led to some difficult changes in our lifestyle, but there haven’t been any bad times.
He’s a source of constant love and affection. He’s a smart, well behaved, loving animal. “
