Miniature Schnauzer Fry

Miniature Schnauzer Fry

Fry is the white guy on the left obviously. The cream colored dog right next to him is Rory.

The first time I saw him he and his litter mate were fuzzy white balls. I had no idea he was a schnauzer. I picked him and his sister up and she was quite a handful. He on the other hand was as calm as could be. I inquired and was told that they were schnauzers. I learned later they were confiscated from a backyard breeder who was had sold their litter mates at 5 weeks old. The shop they were in was run by a woman who worked at the vet they were taken to for bottle feeding. she was selling them for 300.00.

The next time I visited them I wanted to show them to my daughter. After going out for dinner we headed down there. His sister was sold, but he was still there. My husband walked out with him after secretly buying him. He was "marked down" to 150.00. I had 3 other schnauzers at the time and wondered aloud what I would do with another. My daughter immediately offered to take him. I couldn't tell her no and she brought him to her house and they groomed him. He looked like an angel.

Over the years we got to know and love him. Smartest dog I have ever met. He was an escape artist. We called him Frydini. He could get out of my yard no matter what I did. Once even balancing on the edge of a fish tank and then jumping onto a railing, walking down the stair railing and jumping down. He could climb baby gates. He had a special bond with my daughter. You could tell how much he loved her.

Fry died in September when he and his doggie friend Rory got out of my yard and got hit by a train. They were both killed. The pain is unbearable. It has not ebbed. My tears lurk just under the veneer of my life. One thought brings them to the surface. I think about them every day. I miss them every day. I hate that I have to live in a world without them.

My condolences
by: Anonymous

I'm so sorry for you two losses I can't even imagine what your going through losing one pet is bad enough but two at the same time is unbearably sad. My prayers are with you and your family especially your daughter. Once your loved by an animal especially a schnauzer it's the most amazing feeling in the world and for you guys to experience that and then have it taken away because of death it just breaks your heart. Remember to keep your heads up and think about all the loving memories you had with rory and fry. I know right now it may be a tough time but things will get better :)

Thank you to everyone
by: Lynda

Thank you for all your kind words. It helps to know there are so many out there that care. the day after we lost them I wrote this:

My shattered heart beats without my permission. Outside a dog howls.

It is cruel that emotional pain doesn't kill us. It is worse than any physical pain. There are just somethings we should not live through and one of those things is the pain of loss.

I am grateful for the time we had with them. I am sorry it wasn't longer. I will never forget them. I will love the ones still here and thank the gods I have them to love.

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my Gus when he was 7 years old to lymphoma cancer in 2010 and the loss dulls but never goes away. Just remember you will be reunited with them at Rainbow Bridge. So sorry for your loss.

Anna, Max and Penny
