Miniature Schnauzer Griffin

Springtime with Griffin
Griffin was born in China and we purchased him there when living in Guangzhou. We found him in the vet clinic/pet shop at our housing estate. He was so eager and full of licks when my daughters and I would pop in. Totally irresistible!
He'd probably lived in a cage for most of his 8 months of life and so when we brought him back to our apartment, it was a real learning experience for him. He had to learn how to walk up stairs and live with a family.
We brought him back to Canada when we moved home 4 1/2 years ago and, although the paperwork was huge, it was actually a very easy trip. Poor guy had to go 20 hours without toileting which was a bit of a strain. The first thing he did when exiting the airport was to have a VERY long tinkle on the closest tree!
