the love of my life

by jim marzano
(now florida)

i had a male mini schnauzer that i got from a home that was a day care center for children and was kept in a cage all day and fed candy and who knows what. i had him for 8 years and it was a night mare all the time. he finally got to be very mean and bit my grand children so i had to put him down.

after a year or so i decided i wanted another mini so i contacted a mini schnauzer rescue lady in chicago where i lived. she asked me what i was looking for i told her i wanted a black female about a 1 1/2 year old, with the ears and tail cropped she told me my chances where slim to never, but about two weeks later i received a phone call from her saying she was going to look at a dog the owners did not want but said she could not promise me anything. another week went by and the lady of the mini rescue called me back and set up a time for me to look at the dog. she had about 12 miniature schnauzers running around and the one i was interested in ran up to me and stayed by my side and of course she became my dog until she just passed away at 12 years old from cushings complications.

when i called to the lady that i got my dog from 12 years later she remembered me quite well and through the crying, i told her i lost her. she said you do not know how many times me and my friends laughed about you telling me what you wanted, and that when i got the call a few days later i knew that, that dog was meant for you.

as i write this i am crying for the loss of her, she was everything to me. i am in the process of trying to get another mini schnauzer from a rescue. believe me when i say they are very, very smart and understand what you say without pointing or touching. i hope you enjoyed this true story, Jim.

i named her Mitzy and will never forget her as long as i live.

love of life
by: earl & carolyn

words cannot express the depth of the loss ,nor can tears cheer the heart;
but,in time, the memories lose the bitter bite of loss and in its stead is the sweetness of fond memory.....of those special times that you two shared;

we lost our casper in september,2010-the loss was staggering.....tears were my constant companion,
but,almost magically-had casper been able to rise from his sleep...a thought came forward,as if spoken by casper himself: "do for another,what you did for me"

so, in september,2011 we rescued toby..and he became the companion of my heart standing along side of my casper;
rest in peace to all who have passed on;

So sorry for your loss

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my Gus 2 years ago when he was 5 to lymphoma cancer and it is still very painful. I still have Max who is now 5 and he and Gus were best buds. Gus we got from a breeder but Max was a rescue and I just rescued a little black female last year that will soon be 2. They are so precious and are not with us near long enough, thank God that he deemed you worthy to be the caretaker of your Mitzy. You will see her again at the bridge.

Anna, Max and Penny
