I loved our dog Tuffy so much that I cried when we had to put him down. I think he had congestive heart failure. I thought I was going to die. We've got two other schnauzers. They are the love of my life, but I will always love Tuffy my little angel.

It was a great life with my Tuffy, but we all have to move on so we don't hold a grudge. Tuffy had many heart attacks about 20 I think. Think of this when you have a loss he may not be alive but he is still alive in your heart. I hope you have enjoyed my story!

Carmen, I may be your mom but I'd love this even if I wasn't. Tuffy was such a special part of our family. He was our "first child" and then we had you. I loved watching you with him. It was such a heart-wrenching time when he got sick. He is forever in our hearts. Now our family has grown and we have opened hearts to our new girls - Princess and Moppet. Schnauzers are truly a blessing!

You should always love Tuffy , he was part of your family.Right now you have to love the other dogs you have.They will bring you joy and lots of love there way.When you sad or think about Tuffy , just talk to the other dogs and led them know you love them also and just tell them to bad they never got to meat there othr family member.This will ease your hurt you still carry and feel.I lost 2 Saints w/in one year of each other.I have a mini schnauzer girl now , she will be 2 this month.She is my love of my life and we still talk about the other dogs and she looks like she understand what I tell her.She gives me kisses and it makes it all better!!!

My thoughts are with you

Tuffy is thanking you for loving him enough to let him go to sleep. He will always be by your side with your other schnauzers.

we are so sorry for your loss ;in sept. 2010
we had to put our good boy casper to sleep;we also had him cremated so that wherever we are in the future,he'll always be with us;

if time,money and desire permit,there are mini schnauzers out there that need you...so maybe
another tuffy like is waiting,although,we fully understand, there will never be another tuffy;
