Jojo and TazHow You, Too, Can Become Owned By A Miniature Schnauzer

Perhaps you are like me, a person who has always loved dogs. You know, "real dogs," not lap dogs that seem more like toys. I have lived with spaniels, a field training setter (hunter, not show dog), and was adopted by a gorgeous golden retriever I dubbed the "Buddha-Crone-Babe." I never thought I could tolerate a dog with any affiliation with terriers; but two years ago I had my eyes and heart opened and there's no going back now. That was when Jo-jo came to live with us. Now we have Taz, too. And I am learning about breeding so I can get yet another Miniature Schnauzer to breed towards the highest standard.
