Mom, where's my ball?

Here is a picture of Charlie at two months old. He loves to run and chase his many tennis balls and/or squeaky toys. I am forever finding them under the TV stand, or couch, where Charlie can't reach them. He sure keeps us busy but we love having him around.
I am a dog lover without a doubt. I lost my Shepherd-mix best friend to cancer two years ago, and I was finding it hard to decide on whether I should get another dog. My husband finally convinced me to start looking and before we knew it, little Charlie came into our home and into our hearts.
Charlie has brought back so much love and playful energy to our lives that I can't imagine life without this little guy. Mini Schnauzers are so affectionate and love to cuddle. They are a wonderful breed, and I am looking forward to having this little Schnauzer boy in my life for many years to come.
