Kip enjoying a New England Fall

Kip enjoying a New England Fall

I have had dogs and cats all my life but Kip is a once in a lifetime friend. Smart! She has, no kidding, about forty toys and she knows each by name. She has a toy box and we can tell her to get "Albert, or Earl or Pony, or whom ever," and she will dig around in her box until she finds THAT toy! Our friends are in awe! She has a huge vocabulary, my husband and I have to spell words sometimes to keep her from knowing what we are talking about.

We can be gone for hours or to the mail box and on entering the house we are always greeted with a yelp of joy and smiles and kisses! Her face is the first I see each morning as she wiggles up next to me and when I open my eyes and I get a kiss first thing. It makes my day, and I always start my day with a smile! I have never had a Schnauzer before...not sure if it's the breed or we just got very lucky! She is the best!!!

I know this may sound terrible but we used to travel a lot to Europe. But no more, if she cannot go, we do not go. I will not leave her. She IS my best friend and I love her beyond words. I truly consider her a gift from above!

Broken hearted
by: Anonymous

Hi all, to our heart break we lost our Kip to CHF on March 1st 2016. She was 141/2 and our CHILD so we are devastated! Just devastated! She was such a major part of our family and life and left a huge hole in our hearts and life now she is gone. She was a once in a lifetime soul and truly a gift from God we know and we are so so Thankful for such a gift - But Still - we Miss Her Terribly!

My advice to all is take Lots of Videos and pictures they will comfort you at times like this.

Thanks you all! Melissa

Congratulations on your schnauzer--and yes it is a breed trait about how smart they are and how loving and supportive! Mine too know their toys by names and it truly amazes me! Thanks for sharing!

Anna, Max and Penny
