Miss Minnie’s New Home

On her first day in the neighborhood.

On her first day in the neighborhood.

Some of my neighbors who are very rescue minded came across a female miniature Schnauzer that had been abandoned. They brought her home and cleaned her up, cut out tangled hair and fed her. Since they were cat people they invited neighbors to come and meet her. The minute I saw her I said “I think she might need to come to me.” It was my birthday and they came over for evening drinks on my porch. Minnie jumped up in my lap, and that was that. She never left again. It was so hard to imagine her being tossed. We searched the missing dog posts. She was house trained and walking trained. She was 3-5 years old and spayed. She loved people. Especially adults. She ignored children. What a gift of love. I had her five years. She developed diabetes, then very fast glaucoma with blindness. We kept going until she decided it was time to go. What a gift! Sadly I gained 20 pounds after she was gone. We had done a mile walk every morning and afternoon. Oddly when she met another dog there was a lot of barking and took time to accept them unless it was another schnauzer.

I miss Miss Minnie!

What a lovely story. I'm sorry she passed on so soon. It's a shame that they don't last forever. I love my two schnauzers. They're amazing little dogs. You will meet Minnie again.
