Memorial Day Weekend Reminders

It's Memorial Day Weekend and many of us will be enjoying picnics, barbecues, and many more outdoor festivities with family and friends. Lots of us even include our pets on these outings, so we thought it was a good time to remind everyone of a few potential problems while grilling out:

  • Keep your Schnauzer away from the fatty foods and all alcoholic beverages (re-read the poisonous foods to dogs)
  • Keep your Schnauzer away from the grill. Lighter fluids, matches, charcoal, gas, flames, etc.. spell disaster.
  • Keep a watchful eye on your Schnauzer. Your friends and their kids may not be aware of foods that can harm your dog.
  • Be sure to have plenty of fresh water on hand and provide an area of shade for your Schnauzer to relax.
  • Have on-hand your dog's first aid kit and emergency contact numbers to your vet and animal poison control.

Have a safe and fun Memorial Day






Homemade Frosty Paws

Ingredients:

3 cups plain non-fat yogurt
1 ripe banana
3 tablespoons unsalted peanut butter

Blend all ingredients together thoroughly. Then pour mixture into freezer trays. Freeze overnight before serving. These make a cool and yummy treat on a hot summer day for your Miniature Schnauzer to enjoy.


Special thanks to Christine from Texas for her Frosty Paws recipe!

Miniature Schnauzer Therapy Dogs

Aren't Miniature Schnauzers just the most loving and childlike dog breed you've ever owned? Did you know they make wonderful Therapy Dogs too! And what a great way for you to give back to your community and involve your Miniature Schnauzer, too!

What it takes to be a Therapy Dog

Special thanks to Miniature Schnauzer Harley Davidson who took the time out of his busy schedule to give us an in depth view in "The Life of a Therapy Dog".




Schnauzer Tributes

Since our last newsletter, A Schnauzer Tribute was written to honor the life of Miniature Schnauzer Lucky & that of Miniature Schnauzer Fluffy Gustavo Serrano. Please take a few moments to read these tributes and post a kind supportive remark to the owners who must miss their Miniature Schnauzers terribly.
