I truly have a new perceptive and understanding of what true love is …

Gizmo left me completely devastated and frozen in the moments he passed Oct 6, 2022. 13 years of shear joy and happiness ripped away in my hands as I fell out of my bed and held his face with the look of shear terror and pain in his eyes as he screamed out in pain at 3:30 in the morning as he was woke from a peaceful sleep yelping for me to help him as his heart stopped.

I will never recover fully from this experience. The years of happiness and indescribable joy he supplied will never be forgotten… it could not be replaceable his joyful memories will stay in my heart until the time I have leave this earth… a Schnauzer bond can not be replaced.

The SCHNAUZER has a soul like no other breed of dog I have ever had! I know all us that has one or was loved by one will experience this degree of pain in the end.. all of us can so relate to the trauma I am dealing with.

To all of SCHNAUZER owners the blessing of their company is or was a true gift from god. Go ahead and cry it will help… I never thought at 61 I could have ever been this lost and emotional hurt and so confused.. this loss is unbearable. I truly loved my best little friend Gizmo nothing will replace him. The memories photos and videos is all that’s left know..

Gizmo loved to run every single day 365 days a year even thru the snow sometimes even two times a day next to a Honda ATC on a 6 acre farm as seen in the photo he would continuously bark running next to it at 35 miles an hour and bark continuously ridding on it right up to the day he passed…… I called it my schnauzer horn. I will miss that ear piercing sound deeply. The grumbling and talking back as if he was a person…
His bark and grumbling chatter haunts me and will resonates in my mind and heart forever!

God blessed us all with a schnauzer!! I pray his little soul rests in peace……..

My God I am sorry
by: Smokey's Mamma

I am so devastated for your loss. Our babies have no idea just how much they fill our hearts with love. We lost our Smokey Bear just 3 short days ago and our home is lost without him. I truly know what you are going through and you are not alone. All of us who have loved a Schnauzer has to know what a blessing it was to have them in our lives and the pain it causes when they say goodbye. Nothing will ever replace Gizmo and Nothing will ever replace Smokey Bear. They were Angels God sent down to bless us if only for a little while.

I feel your pain, and am so sorry for your loss

Our Mr Bud also had a heart attack. He was with us for 10+ years a rescue we think for 5 years. He was fine and then he cried out and was gone. I am so sorry for your loss
