I think this is a turn of the century photo of my relative Grandpa Norville the Schnauzer! The family resemblance is uncanny!! •••••
Family legends say he was a very cantankerous schnauzer chasing rats in the old barn, butting heads with Bubba, the old Billy goat; stealing fresh eggs from the hen house and peeing on any horse and buggy he saw in town! (This was in the days before cars, televisions, smart phones and the internet)
He was also known to rummage through the gardens on neighboring farms helping himself to tomatoes, squash, corn on the cob, green beans, snap peas and his favorite...carrots!
In his later days he became something of a hermit preferring to stay close to his beloved family in the big farmhouse on the hill. Rumor has it that Grandpa Norville had so much squirrel jerky stored up in a secret location in the farmhouse that he may have lived a very very long time! •••••
And now his legacy lives on in me! #legends #talltales #livelong #dogsinhats #thoseeyes #doctheschnauzer
