Our best friend Luke

Luke was our kid. He never met a stranger. He was always ready to play and gave lots of hugs and kisses. Luke was a smart boy; he learned lots of words and kept us on schedule.

His favorite things included playing with his stuffed toy, getting the mail, and keeping the geese out of the yard. He also liked riding in the car, not doggie style, head out the window, but always snoozing in his bed in the back seat.

Luke passed away on December 28, 2015. He was sick with pancreatitis. He was 5 years old. Tomorrow (Jan. 18th) is his birthday. We miss him so much and wanted to share his story with fellow schnauzer lovers. RIP Luke. We will always remember our times together.

Gratitude
by: Anonymous

So sorry for your loss. We lost out little girl Sunshine this past summer. This is the first time I could look at the page with all the little Schnauzers. I have to remember to have gratitude for the time our little Sunshine was with us. She was our little girl. She passed away with kidney failure from meds she was taking for her leaking hear valve.

So sorry for your loss. Understand the grief you feel. Lost my Joey boy to cancer several months ago. Miss him so. Luke was a handsome boy. They are so smart and become valued members of our families. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

So Sorry
by: Anonymous

My condolences to you on the loss of Luke. I understand the heartache. We lost our beloved Midnight 2/15 to kidney failure. We were in shock because we had to say goodbye a week later. He was 8 yo & we were devastated. Then in June 2015 we lost our beloved Bailey. She had CHF and lived a year after her diagnosis. We had the pleasure of having her in our lives for 14 yrs. I think about them everyday especially since the 1 yr anniversary of Midnight's passing is next month. But there is a brighter light as we welcomed Oakley into our lives in July 2015. We were planning on getting another one before Bailey passed. He fit right in from the moment we got him. He's now 8 months old and boy he's a character. I'm sure Luke is running with Midnight & Bailey.

So sad. Luke was a very handsome boy. There is a book "Cold Noses at the Pearly Gates" by Gary Kurz. When my precious Bailey passed it gave me comfort. You can get it on Amazon.

Schnauzers rule
by: Kathy

So sorry for your loss. They do become our kids. I love Schnauzers as their personality are so great. We have had 4. This one is the most unique yet. He really thinks he's human. He throws balls, talks like we should understand. We have been fortunate to have ours live pretty long lives. RIP Luke.

Our Thoughts Are With You
by: Steve and Lena

What a sweet face. So sorry for your loss. Ten years ago my lovely wife talked me into getting a dog. We now have two schnauzers. Bette is our first. I know someday I will say goodbye to her and be filled with grief. I try to cherish every day we have together, and believe the countless happy memories will somehow sustain me. Luke, you are missed. RIP, you fine fellow.

So very sorry
by: Nanette

I'm so very, very sorry for your loss of your precious boy Luke. I know what you are feeling. Our sweet schnauzer, Chloe Marie, went to Rainbow Bridge April 27, 2015. She was diagnosed with kidney failure on Jan. 23, 2015 and she turned 6 yrs. old on Mar. 31. It is so hard to understand why when they are still young. I am angry that my little girl couldn't live a long life. My heart just breaks for you but just know that they are in a good place, no longer sick and having a great time with their new little fur-friends and I think we will see them again. This is what helps me to accept it. Sending hugs and prayers to you.

Not many Schnauzers owners know how delicate the pancreas is too high fat diet. Don't be sad he was loved. I feel with you in your pain and loss.

Seek a reputable breeder.

I love schnauzers!
by: Donna Vaughn

I am so sorry for your loss. My little guy Livingston turned 16 years old last October. he is having some health problems so I know that the time to let go is coming.

When we first got him it was like we had always had him. Schnauzers are very special. Only those who have had one knows what I'm talking about.

My Condolences, Donna

You're in my thoughts and prayers
by: Loretta

I understand your pain. Only animals lovers understand the loss of a fur baby. They are a part of of our famililies. This site has been so helpful for me since I lost my Kipper 5-23-15 due to an inoperable spinal tumor.
It hurts so much because they gave us so much love. Thank God for our memories.

So sorry
by: Jann

I had two Schnauzzies die with Pancreitis.....it's a horrid disease and seems to plaque many Schnauzers....
I lost my beloved Puppers 11 years ago and although 11 years later we have a darling little Yorkie we love dearly.....
I will never ever forget the love and adornment I had for my Puppers. I miss her everyday....she was 15 and full
Of that horrid disease.....I am so truly sorry for your loss and you pain......keeping you close to heart always.

Thank you all
by: Letecia

Thank you all for your kind words and well wishes. @Lisa, we aren't sure why Luke's pancreatitis was so severe. Schnauzers are prone to the illness, and some don't recover. We didn't follow up with our vet or investigate why. Again, thanks for your comments.

So sorry for your loss
by: Jo Ann

I am so sorry about your precious Luke. We have two schnauzers currently and one of them, Rudy, has chronic pancreatitis. He is 14 now, and we have been able to manage it, but it is painful for them when it flares up. I also had another schnauzer who died from it also at 8 years old. This breed is very prone to it so unfortunately. Please accept my condolences over the loss of your baby. It is so difficult to lose them....<3

Condolence for Luke
by: Sharon Barnett

My sincere condolences.
May God comfort you with His peace and strength, and the love of family and friends sustain you in this difficult time.


the Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

by: toni Anderson

My heart is breaking for you. We also lost a schnauzer boy with pancreatitis. I'm so sorry...yours was so young. The only think wrong with animals is that they don't live long enough.
Big hugs to you all..
