A couple of weeks ago I went to Melbourne for a little down time and to see my family. While I was there, I couldn't resist the opportunity to photography the newest furry family member of some of my oldest friends.
Barney, aka Mr Floofy Face, is just the most adorable mini schnauzer! At just 6 months old, he's super well behaved, has lovely manners, loves a cuddle and is adequately obsessed with chewing things in the garden.
We spent some time hanging out in his lovely, afternoon sun-filled backyard before going for a walk to the nearby Darebin Gardens. It was here that Barney made it abundantly clear that he likes to chase ducks and birds, but still has a healthy amount of caution when it comes to being near the water.
We explored the gardens for a while, and had a big run where Barney showed us his best crazy running face (well probably more cute that crazy) and he showed off his amazing ability to sit and stay for lengthy periods of time! Such a smart little puppy.
After about an hour and a half, Barney was pooped and the sun was getting low so we meandered back to his home where he continued to show off his cuteness and we had a cup of tea. I have no doubt at all that you will see more of this crazy little critter in the future, can't wait to see what he's like as a grown up!
