Socket, Stark, Terri, Fritz, Muddy, Blitz and Sally

Here is my Schnauzer Clan of 7. Each have a unique story of how they came in my life.

Rachet (RIP my good boy) left me 2 years ago and left his good friend Socket behind. As I wanted to make the transition easy for the both of us I decided to get him a playmate and somehow was talked into getting two litter-mates (Blitz and Fritz).

As a few months went by my heart was still broken and wanted to rescue a dog so we came across Sally and Terri. They were both used for 6 1/2 years to push out puppies and when they couldn't anymore the breeder didn't want them. They were original sisters from birth. So we rescued Sally and saw that she was suffering from bad ear infections and bad teeth so I decided if she was in such bad health I couldn't leave her sister Terri behind so she came home a month later.

I thought 5 schnauzers that is enough and then right before my 40th birthday in June a rescue group was at our local petsmart and Muddy came home (liver and white) and of course I said that is it. A couple months went by and the rescue group asked if we could foster 2 schnauzers since we have experience with them - of course I couldn't say no plus they would only be at the house for a week or two. And the story goes One made it to Canada with a great family and one stayed home cause my good "old" blind guy "Socket" found a new best friend in Stark.

Even with 7 schnauzers at home there isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss my original good boy Rachet. Not a day goes by that I don't wish he was still here with Socket and I but then again each of these other dogs have found a good home and each of the siblings were able to stay with each other.

I've owned 3 schnauzers, prior to the 3 I have now. And even though I loved and love every one of them. There was one that was extra special to me, just as Ratchet was special to you. Jake was 13 when I lost him to cancer in 2008, and my heart breaks again, everytime I think of him. God bless you for rescuing so many. They have definitely found the perfect home.

What a handsome pack
