Watching my figure or YOLO (Picky eater or "starving all the time?") I am only picky with mom because I know she will give me yummy treats in my food.

I always am... Barking at the mailman/lady and going on long walks with my mom and dad

Loves getting pets or just a loner? Loves playing fetch, then getting pets

Introvert vs extrovert? Extrovert...schnauzer, duh

Funny characteristics: He is extremely picky with his food when mom feeds him. He waits until mom adds a topper or human food of some type before agreeing to eat. With dad, he eats his normal food right away. He has his mother wrapped around his paw. 

Misc stories about their past etc.: Two years ago on Easter, Mack couldn't resist the smell of the rising cinnamon rolls that his father put on the  kitchen counter. While mom and dad were sleeping, he jumped up onto the counter and finished 8 cinnamon rolls (in dough form) before mom caught him from the sound of the pan hitting the floor. He immediately started getting sick and mom and dad were extremely worried about the rising dough in his warm tummy and potential alcohol poisoning from the yeast. THANKFULLY, Mack fully recovered within a few days but needless to say, he ruined Easter due to his love for food!
