The Best Medicine Is a Miniature Schnauzer
by Dianne Stanley
After living three years with a miniature schnauzer, there is no other dog for me. I was having migraines nearly daily which led to me having a mini-stroke. My neurologist told me I would never be able to go without a dog in my home or my migraines would be harder to control.
I have recently gone through a divorce which ending with my not keeping my mini schnauzer. He was a great source of comfort for my daughter, so we agreed to let him be with her. But all is not lost! I was allowed to choose another miniature schnauzer in our divorce agreements.
I first contacted our previous breeder. They were waiting for a litter to be born. I was notified one week before Christmas of the arrival of the puppies. I was thrilled!! Two days later, I was told that all the puppies in the litter had died. I was DEVASTATED!! I lost sleep and cried for hours! I turned to my network of miniature schnauzer breeders online and found a lady who had one puppy left. I truly believe things happen for a reason and purpose. This group of miniature schnauzer lovers was how I found my newest family edition.
I got my new little black and silver 7-week old baby boy six days later, which happened to be three days after Christmas. I drove three and a half hours in the rain and across two state lines to get him! He has been worth every mile!! He keeps me going and brings joy to my life by keeping me company. Bentley has become my anti-depression therapy. I love him deeply!
