here's the pack lounging on the sofa

On arriving at a so called rescue centre which has now been closed down to pick up an eight wk old puppy, i passed a cage with two ex breeding bitches who were very timid and one had only 20% sight in one eye and none in the other. i had already decided that they where coming home with me as i carried on walking to the end i saw a pitiful sight an ex stud dog completely blind with no skin on his nose or ears he was so thin every bone in his spine showed. i decided i was going to take him home to die in comfort i had to pay the sum of 650 pounds to rescue them as i arrived home to greet my other miniature schnauzer left at home i began to think that will my husband would say but when he saw them his heart melted.

they all had worms coming from both ends, one almost died within 3 days. all needed extensive dental treatment. Bill was still with me 3 years later. i lost him last year. then i lost Betty 8 weeks ago. the day she died my other dog whom i had for 9 years was diagnosed with cancer and i lost her last week. but i would not have changed a thing although the road has been hard.

i still have Harriet who now is totally blind the puppy i originally went to pick up is now 4 years old. called him Dexter

ps. we pick up our new puppy next wk sooooo happy

Fabulous Work!

I commend you on your fabulous work with these wonderful schnauzers! I'd say "bless you" but you have already been blessed with an abundance of empathy and a big heart. Bless you, anyway!!

Love you!

You have done an amazing thing for your little Schnauzers, they ended their life's with dignity and love.
My friend recently lost his puppy farmed mini, I was lucky with my two (mini & SS) to help her along and lead a great life until the end. I feel for the ones that never know the goodness in people's hearts.

You are a wonderful kind hearted person. I am so sorry for your losses, but as you say You won't have had it any other way, but them at home with you. I wish you all the best in the future with any Schnauzer who is lucky to live with you and your warm kind heart. xxx

Saving Ollie
by: Joni

So sorry for your losses, schnauzers are family in every sense. What helps with my grieving is to rescue another one. I am on rescue #3 now, my first pup, Ollie is a little over a year. He was thin with big scabs in his ears but had been treated and neutered 2 weeks before I got him. They said he was at death's door when they got him from a kill center. He is happy and healthy now but just cringes if I raise my voice to him. He's a ball of energy. He's filled out and has a big yard. I applaud you for your rescues. It always amazes me that anyone could be cruel to these little guys. God bless you and your family.
