My Best Friend...Rudy
by Jean Francis
Rudy is wonderful male schnauzer almost 2 1/2 years old. We have had many dogs, my husband and I are in our 50's, and Rudy is the best dog we have ever had and feel blessed to have him as a part of our family every day.
Rudy loves to go on walks, but his passion is playing fetch and chasing squirrels in the backyard. If he brings the ball only part way (in order to catch his breath), I say, "Are you done?", and then he comes racing over to drop it for me to throw once again. The most fun thing I have taught him to do, is to go down the slides at parks. He loves it and it brings so much laughter and many smiles to the faces of adults and children when they see him do it. I have had people video tape him doing it.
In the picture here he is only about 10 weeks old. His first motorcycle trip on the back of my motorcycle was 1700 miles when he was about 12 weeks old. He looks hilarious, riding down the road with his beard flying in the wind. We have had people smile, wave, point, and slow down as they are passing us to look at him.
I love this little man so much, and am so "sold" on the Schnauzer breed, that I have a second one coming on December 20, 2012! :) Schnauzers do indeed, RULE, in my heart and life.
