Best Dog Ever
by Shirley Bates
Mini Schnauzer Skylar
Meet Skylar. She is a 3 year old salt and pepper mini schnauzer. She has her papers and all, but that's not important to us. She truly is our bearded baby.
When our nest became empty and our Grandchildren moved across town, we decided we needed a lap-dog to love. We live in Northeast Texas and drove to Georgia to pick her up when a friend of ours needed to give her away. Skylar was 2 years old and had already had 3 litters of puppies. So we had her spayed as soon as she got comfortable in our home, so now she can be the baby.
Boy does she ever liked to be loved. She goes from baby to protector to hunter in seconds. She loves to play and has a favorite holey sock.
Skylar almost never barks, I suppose somebody must have scolded her for making noise, but she is getting better about barking when someone is at the door. She learned everything she needed to learn about us and our home very fast. Our home will probably always have a Schnauzer from now on. They really are the best dogs ever.
