Meet my new canine buddy, Austin! He made his social media debut last Sunday through an Instagram photo I posted when I got home with him in tow.
I was thinking about getting a dog for quite some time. It’s been years since I lost Brooks, a Chinese Shar-Pei. The law of attraction must have worked on me. I wasn’t expecting to get one, but here he is! Austin is a Schnoodle – a cross between a Schnauzer and a Poodle. Schnoodles are not an officially recognized breed, but it’s a mix known to dog enthusiasts.
I named him after my favorite ukelele cover artist, Austin Flynn, whom I discovered on YouTube.
I didn’t have any difficulty introducing Austin to our Yellow Labrador, Mindy. It’s a relief they get along well. Labradors are friendly by nature anyway.
Expect to see more of Austin (and Mindy) in the coming blog posts, tweets and Instagram photos!
