Dear Chico (AKA cheeker, sneaker, boo boo, and shultz)

I can only imagine what mischief you must be up to in Heaven. You are probably ripping off all the noses of your stuffed animals and sunbathing in your favorite window eating popcorn. I can hear you barking at the tv at some dog food commercial and wagging your tiny tail like you were in a unusually competitive thumb war.

You were so affectionate to me even towards the end of your life. Never denying my kisses or a ridiculous photo opportunity. I can hear you grumbling, "no more selfies" and "duck faces are soo last year."

For the past 14 years, you gave our family so much joy, laughter and above all, love. You will always be our territorial terrier, our sock stealing bandit, our mirror fighting menace, but most importantly, you will always be our baby. You are missed every moment of every day.

Love you forever, rest in peace in Heaven.

Sweet Chico
by: Auntie Diana

Aww.....Sweet Chico you will always leave a special place in
in my heart I will miss the unexpected visits with the look
in your eyes asking for water the second you walked in or When everyone was busy you'd run only to me to take you out.
Christmas are especially dear...that last moment on trying to
figure out what size collar would fit him or what bed to buy..three or four times later.....is it too small our is it comfortable enough or would he be sticking out either way no matter what size some how big or small he managed to stick out.....yeah he definitely brought a smile to our everyday life whether he was carrying Winnie the Pooh claiming it's his
pillow or running to you me and sitting on top of me to take
him out. Yes .....I agree schnauzer are one of a kind.
Those moments I will treasure thanks Chico for making us smile.

"If it should be..." (hope this helps xx)
by: Fran

If it should be I grown frail and weak,
And pain should wake me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle can’t be won.

You will be sad – I understand,
Don’t let your grief then stay you hand,
For this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship stand the test.

We’ve had so many happy years,
What is to come will hold no fears,
You’d not want me to suffer……..so,
When the time comes…..please let me go.

Take me where all my needs they’ll tend,
But stay with me until the end,
And hold me firm, and speak to me,
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time you too will see,
It is a kindness you do me,
Although my tail is last waved,
From pain and suffering I’ve been saved.

Do not grieve that it should be you,
Who must decide this thing to do,
We’ve been so close – we two – these years,
Don’t let your heart hold any tears.

Chico and Rainbow Bridge
by: Michele

I believe that when our babies become poorly, and can no longer cope, God knows this and takes care of them guiding their souls to that Rainbow and over the Bridge, one day to be 're-united with their beloved owner.I know and believe my precious boys are there.

Hugs to you
by: Anonymous

So sorry for your loss of your little guy, Chico. He sounds like he was full of Schnauzer Spirit. That's something that captures all of our hearts and leaves imprints on our souls. You will see him around every corner. That's going to be hard. But he will always be with you in spirit and thank you for giving him a wonderful home full of love.

Angel Wings for Chico

Yes, Heaven did receive a handsome fur angel upon the arrival of your sweet Chico. It is so difficult to guide our precious canine family members to Rainbow Bridge. Just remember you shared a wonderful life with Chico and that you will again some day when reunited in Heaven. Heartfelt condolences and always treasure those beautiful memories of Chico close within your heart.

What lovely photos of your baby. Yes he has gone over to Rainbow Bridge and is having fun.
My love goes out to you and your Chico would not want you to be sad, as he's ok.
I have also lost two babies, one being Rebel 1 in June 2005 age 11 of kidney failure. then Ringo age 15 of old age in November 2010. Then I lost my hubby in January 2011. I do have two more minis... Rebel 2 and Benji.. and wouldn't be without them

Strong and determined schnout
by: Mom

Chico was loved by all our family. He was my turning point special birthday present from dad, Grsndma, grandpa and sisters. It made it so much easier to accept the start if z new chapter in my life. A cute, adorable 8 week old puppy. He brought subsube in a dark, gloomy day. It's easy to remember hiw much fun we had watching him develop and grow through his life cycle. I'll never forget his character, fierce, strong and determined he was with his rag toy as dad wrestled to pull it away from his mouth. The more dad pulled the more acrobatic he became to actually climbing up dad's stomach, arm and his back, how sharp and strong his jaws became. He developed skill and agility and his schnauzer strong willed, stubborn personality rose through. He had great taste for sniffing the chocolates and a few times, he stole a box or two and ripped open with his teeth the plastic off the Frangos box and worked his way to opening the box and ate almost the entire box and felt no upset stomach. How he would steal the tissues and jaw shut his mouth so you couldn't take it away from him, except luring him away from it by giving him some luncheon meat. He was so snuggly cute, he gave us undivided, unconditional love. He brought happiness to us. So many great and fun memories. We love and miss him so much.
