Arrival Story:
Before Taz became my Greatest Gift, I was looking to get a Giant Schnauzer. I had never seen a Giant Schnauzer in person so I called a local breeder and went to see his Giants. Wow, they were big and I decided that at the time my home and yard wasn't big enough for a Giant. The breeder also had Standard Schnauzers, which I also had never seen or really heard of, and after seeing them and their size I decided that a Standard was for me. The breeder didn't have any puppies so I waited for their next litter, they were planning on breeding soon so I waited and waited and waited. Several months after I initially talked with the breeder he told me he still had not breed his female. He told me he had a Standard that was about four months old, whom he intended on keeping for show but had decided he would let him go to me for the Pet price if I wanted him. He already had his ears cropped and I wanted my dog to have floppy ears, since all my previous Miniature Schnauzers had floppy ears. I decided to go see the puppy and should have known that I would come home with him. Cropped ears or not he was so cute and I couldn't resist. So he came home with me and my life hasn't been the same since, and that is a good thing. About a year or so later, I realized how lucky it was that this breeder decided to let Taz go and that I decided to take him. I believe this breeder was caught up in gambling or something and a horrible thing happened. I heard on the news of a raid on a home in which they found 19 dead Giant & Standard Schnauzers and it made me sick when I realized these beautiful dogs were owned by the breeder that I got Taz from. I made me even more sick when I realized that had I not decided to take Taz that faithful day he could have very well been one of those babies they found dead. I thank God everyday for the blessing that is Taz.

I went over the Rainbow Bridge on Oct. 29th 2009 just a week after my 13th Birthday. A careless driver veered off the road & hit me, right in front of my mommy's eyes. The driver wasn't going to stop but saw my mommy running towards me screaming hysterically so he stopped for a minute said he was sorry & left my mommy crying hysterically by my side. I died instantly but my mommy kept begging me to come back, I wish I could have. It's been a month now but my mommy keeps crying herself to sleep every night, I hope she knows how much I love her & that I will be waiting for her here in heaven. My dear Taz I really don't know how to live without you and I miss snuggling with you and hugging and kissing you soo much. The pain is just so over whelming and I cannot stop crying. I want you to know that I will never, never forget you and the love and protection you unconditionally gave to me every day. You are still my sweet, sweet baby dog & the best thing that ever happened to me. Love your mommy forever.
