Mini Schnauzer Hal relaxing by the pool
Hal is our seven year old Mini Schnauzer who is the love of our family. As a divorced mother of two teenagers, we had never had a pet (with the brief exception of a snake!). When I met my now husband he was waiting to choose a Mini Schnauzer from a litter in Fresno, CA. It wasn't long after little Hal came to live in Roseville that all three of us were hooked. Now both kids say they will never "not own" a Mini!
Like most Mini Schnauzers, Hal does not like to swim, he barks at the pool like it is his enemy, chases us around as though we will drown if he leaves us alone. Hal does however like to spend a little down time by the pool in our lounge chairs. This picture is Hal relaxing by the pool one July afternoon...freshly groomed, and happy, that's our Sunning Hal!
