In the heart of Norway, a four-year-old Miniature Schnauzer named Ludde leads a life that many would envy. Ludde is a dog of unique tastes and boundless energy, embarking on captivating adventures and indulging in a passion for waffles that is nothing short of legendary. Join us as we delve into the enchanting world of Ludde, where every moment is an opportunity for exploration, connection, and a longing for his beloved treats.

Ludde’s devotion to waffles is nothing short of a love story for the ages. With eyes that sparkle at the mere mention of the word, Ludde dreams of fluffy, golden waffles and hopes that his grandma will keep his dreams alive by creating these delectable treats whenever possible. Ludde’s unwavering affection for waffles adds a touch of sweetness to his already charming personality.



 Ludde is a true adventurer at heart, and his mode of exploration is as unique as he is – the Knotten the RV. Accompanied by his dad, Ludde traverses the stunning landscapes of Norway, from lush forests to majestic mountains. Hikes become thrilling quests, and each new trail is a canvas for Ludde’s boundless enthusiasm and zest for life.

Ludde’s heart knows no bounds when it comes to his family. Alongside his dad, Ludde’s affection extends to his dad’s girlfriend, Kaddy, who shares in their escapades. Peachy, Ludde’s cherished best friend from Germany, adds an extra layer of joy to Ludde’s life. The camaraderie between these two furry adventurers is a testament to the power of friendship across borders.



Bath time may be a necessary evil for many dogs, but for Ludde, it’s a true challenge. The very idea of water seems to perplex and confound him, leading him to believe that water should be dry and waffle-like. Ludde’s aversion to bath time is a humorous reminder of his distinct personality and his preference for the cosy comforts of dry land.

Ludde’s vocal talents are nothing short of impressive. From alerting the household to the faintest rustle to barking at shadows that exist solely in his imagination, Ludde’s barks are a melodic expression of his zest for life. Even though his target may occasionally be elusive, there’s no denying that Ludde’s enthusiastic barks are a symphony of his vibrant spirit.

His passion for waffles, thirst for adventure, and unconditional love for his family and friends define him as a dog whose presence fills any room with warmth and joy. Ludde is proof that even the smallest among us can have the biggest impact on the world around them.
