You know a dog has special importance in someone’s life when he is given a name such as Otto Von Schnauzer. My first thoughts are that his bond with his humans is likely to be far from ordinary.
Occupying a place deep within his mum’s heart, this Miniature Schnauzer is another lucky dog who gets to spend his days at work. Leanne is a beautician and Otto’s job description is to lift the day of her clients; something he does really well. Although not permitted to spend his time in the salon, he can reside in the backyard or upstairs in his own, rather large lounge room. Here he readily accepts cuddles, compliments and affection from the many women who venture upstairs to visit him.
With his distinctive clip that highlights his magnificent eyebrows and beard, Otto is one handsome dog. However, it is Otto’s shiny nose and bottom lip, along with his inclination to laugh, that melt Leanne’s heart.
Weekdays for this pair begin in the car sharing breakfast toast as they observe the passing suburbs during their commute to work. A simple ritual that Leanne treasures.
During the daytime Otto and Leanne enjoy their breaks exploring the streets and laneways of the surrounding neighbourhood. Sometimes sporting different coats or bandanas, this friendly, happy dog always attracts the attention of local shopkeepers and shoppers alike. Everyone loves him.
At the end of the day it is off home to greet and play with his eagerly waiting dad, Richie.
