Mini Schnauzer Ziggy

Mini Schnauzer Ziggy

Ziggy is the master of sounds in our house. He senses when a snack bag is about to be opened. He hears a manual can opener being taken out of a drawer. When the cupboard door, which holds pet food, opens, he is on high alert.

Now, you might ask, is he over weight? No. Is he sluggish and lazy? Absolutely not. He has constant energy. He's not a hyper boy, he's just full of Joy. He's built like a Pot Roast, all muscle.

He has 2 favorite toys, an Orange football and a Blue football. They both squeak. We throw the ball, he runs, gets it, drops it at our feet, then grabs the ball biting pushing it, holds it in his mouth and violently shakes his head, all the while keening. He looks up at us and makes a sound like "Please throw it again? He is a ratter, after all.

Zig has excellent hearing and is a very good watch dog. He lets us know when there is a varmint that does not belong near our house. He doesn't like baths and grooming but he will tolerate it. He has a step-sister who try's to keep him in check. Phoebe is 3 years older than Ziggy and is very protective of him.

Going to the breeder, I brought Phoebe with me. Asked permission to bring her in so she could make the selection. There were 4 pups, 2 male, 2 female. Phoebe looked around, went to Ziggy, introduced herself, licked his face and we brought him home. Nov. 5th he will be 5 years old and he is the best, along with his sis.

Until 8 years ago, I never thought of Schnauzers. Now, I can't think of being without them. They are our Joy.

Our Pups
by: Gerri

In our years as dog owners, we've experienced extreme heartache, but the love & joy our Pups have brought to us is immeasurable . God bless your Ayx with many happy years.

Feeling happy....
by: Sasha's mum Anjali

fely happy reading about Ziggy and the big sis...
bless them both...

Loving them and being loved by them is beautiful part of living. I absolutely adore them too...

When our Sasha passed away last march we said.. that is it, no more doggies... too much to deal with the heart break etc, But after 3 Months Axl came to our lives and filling us with Joy and reminding our darling Sasha all the time....
I think their love and their rolling eyeballs and
cheekyness is just addictive....
