For 13 years, we enjoyed the company of two wonderful dogs, Midnight and Shadow, our Mini Schanuzers. They were brothers with lots of personality. They did everything together, and I mean everything. Shadow passes first, unexpectedly, and then a year and a half later, Midnight passed. Losing them was hard for the family, and it took a while to get used to a quiet house again.
But then the time came when we missed having dogs around. The search began. We knew we wanted Mini Schnauzers again, and we gave rescues a try. We saw some we really liked, but it wasn’t meant to be. So, after a while, we gave Midnight and Shadow’s breeder a call on a whim, to see if she had an older dog available. We were not looking for a puppy again. Luckily, she happened to have a girl. We agreed to meet, and fell in love with the dog at first sight. She’s all black, stunning, and loves to give kisses. We knew we were taking her home.
A few days later, the breeder called and said she had “a proposition “. She had another dog that was too small to breed, and wanted to know if we would like to take her as well. We were not planning on getting two dogs again, but there must be a reason for us to have two. So, we talked about it and decided to do it.
This morning, we were so excited to pick them up! We got all of their supplies, along with some frilly dresses, and introduced them to their new home. So far, so good; I think they are doing just fine.
