My name is Rhonda, and I hope you enjoy my story of how I came to be involved with raising Miniature Schnauzers.
Having grown up with Miniature Schnauzers, I have always had them in my life, they were always just considered a part of our family. When my 3 children were young, I raised White Miniature Schnauzers. I had one female, named Ellie. She was the most intelligent, sweetest, kindest dog I had ever seen or been around.
In 2008, Ellie died suddenly and I was devastated, as was our family. I never thought I would have another Schnauzer because it was just too painful. We all loved Ellie and missed her terribly.
Last year my daughter, Ashli, purchased a Liver Miniature Schnauzer named, Reece. I could very quickly see in Reece those same qualities I had loved so much in Ellie. He won me over in no time, as he did everyone.
One day, while on my computer and decided I would search for Schnauzer puppies, just out of curiosity. I found a website and it advertised a little female puppy. I sat for an hour and stared at her picture and finally decided I would inquire about the puppy. I contacted the website and a little later spoke to the woman, Margo, on the phone. She was so nice and I asked her if she still had "Cozy", the name she had given her puppy on the site. I had fallen in love with "Cozy`s" picture and was so hoping she was still available. Margo said she was still available and we went on to have a lengthy conversation about our love for these wonderful dogs. I knew at that moment I had made the right decision and I just had to have "Cozy."
I received my new puppy, who I then named Gabby. She has brought so much joy to my life. She is so beautiful, intelligent, sweet, and so loving.
I have since decided to raise Miniature Schnauzers because they have brought so much joy to my life and I want others to know and experience how much love and happiness these dogs can give. They are truly special in every way. I have dedicated my program to Ellie, because she had such an influence on me. My Schnauzers now have helped me heal from the loss of my Ellie.
Some things are just meant to be. I would like to acknowledge and thank Margo Jacobs of Moon Pie`s Beautiful Schnauzers, from the bottom of my heart, who has not only inspired me, but also had a big influence on my decision to raise these amazing dogs. She has helped me to realize how much I have to give back to the Miniature Schnauzer breed. I have gained the most wonderful friend and mentor in Margo, and for that I am sincerely grateful.
I now own some of the most amazing dogs and am now in the process of beginning my own program, which I am so excited about. I want others to share in my enthusiasm of owning one of these great dogs. Please check back with me periodically, as I will be offering some absolute beauties in the future !
Thank you Margo !!!
