Arrival Story:
We lost our salt and pepper Standard Schnauzer, Woody, in February of 2000, after a long battle with Cushing's Disease. We were all heartbroken, and couldn't bear the sudden emptiness in our house. We started looking for a second dog, and kept coming back to Standard Schnauzers. We felt that another salt and pepper would look too much like Woody, but we loved the Schnauzer's fearlessness, loyalty, and positive (though naughty) outlook on life. My mother saw the black standard schnauzers at an AKC dogshow, and fell in love. We found a good breeder who reserved a boy pup from her next litter. But when the puppies were born, our boy was weak and passed away. Our breeder put us in contact with her close friend, another black standard breeder, who had a litter at the same time and had exactly one pup left, a boy, who was not spoken for. We felt like we were destined to have this dog. When we saw Bailey for the first time, he was a rolly little thing, with a barrel chest that fit perfectly in cupped hands, and a little pink tongue that always stuck out just a little. The breeder told us that Bailey wagged his tail when he ate. How could anyone resist this little round dog with an impish face and a great love of food? Bailey came home with us, and has been a naughty but adored member of our family ever since. Bailey passed away gently in my mothers' and my arms on May 2nd, 2008, after a long battle with epilepsy. We hope that wherever he is now there is a lot of string cheese, pot holders to steal, and a great big kiddy pool to nap in on summer days. We love you Bailey.

Bio:
Bailey is really good at "cheeking" naughty things. We will hear him crunching away at something, but when we check inside his mouth there seems to be nothing there. Turn away, and he starts crunching again. We still don't know how he does it. Once after greeting me with tons of kisses, he turned around a spit out a dead bird, which he'd been hiding somewhere in his fuzzy face. Bailey has a great sense of humor and has almost frightening problem solving skills. To deter him from jumping up on counters, we applied sticky tape to the edges as instructed by our trainer. Bailey used the adhesive to get a better grip on the counter so he could steal things farther back on the counter. Naughty boy. :)
