Arrival Story: I was born in Florida. Mommy already had Georgie and brought her in for grooming from my first human mommy, and to get her a playmate. There I was, jumping up & down, barking "What about me, what about me." Mommy had the choice of some other pretty good looking schnauzers, including my dad who was a champion! But mommy picked me up and I melted into her arms. She held me close enough that I could hear her heart beating a little faster and I knew I won her over. Ginny our first human mommy thought I was one of the best looking that she had, but she said I was too short to go to the show... I was kinda glad cuz I didn't have to have my hair combed all of the time. Georgie & I had the same fur mommy so we were already sisters. Anyway, Ginny sent me home that day with Mommy and Georgie. High five - I scored big that day!!!
Bio: Annie was the sweetest & most affectionate dog that I ever knew. From the moment I picked her up she was my little angel, my little shadow. She insisted on giving me a kiss on the face when I came home, pestering me until I let her. If I left the room, pretty soon you'd hear her coming down the hallway looking for me. Whenever I sat at the computer, she sat on my lap. She would prance around and be very happy when we would go out together without anyone else because she had my complete attention. Annie was naturally athletic and loved to run. Sometimes she would scamper like a little rabbit. She loved her walks with her sister Georgie. Annie also loved all of the people who used to come over and walk her during the day when I had to be at work. She also had some very special friends like Jack, Barbara, and Paula. She was the dog that also seemed to show concern for others if they were hurt or frightened. Her sister Georgie was afraid of thunder, and Annie would sit with her until the storm was over. I don't think we were separated for more than a total of 6 weeks the whole time I had her. She was indeed my special little angel. She developed heart disease and was taken too young in November 2006. We all miss her so much! Esp her sister Georgie who waits for her at the bottom of the stairs when she is let out. They always waited for each other before they ran off into the yard. We know that her big brother Boomer and Ginny her 1st human mom are taking care of her since going over the Rainbow Bridge. Sometimes she shows up in my dreams still. We are together usually cuddling on the couch like we did every night even if just for a few minutes. Someday we will be together again...until then Sweet Baby - mommy loves you with all of her heart.
Happy Birthday sweet girl! I love you & miss your sweetness! I miss you sleeping with me at night, walking & running every day. Dad always laughs when he thinks about how you displayed your displeasure with someone. You'd sit in your bed with your back toward that person. Hahaha, you were just too cute.
I wish we could've found your puppies so we could see if any of them were as sweet as you! They certainly were as pretty as you. I do know that one started to be a show dog, but then your breeder Ginny passed away from cancer. I've talked to so many people who knew Ginny but no one knew where your puppies were placed. I know that somewhere out there, that your beauty, sweet personality and athleticism was carried on down through generations of new schnauzers. I know there is a legacy of some very special dogs.
I love you, girly girl, and you'll always be in my heart.
Happy Birthday Girly Girl!!! I have nothing but the best memories of you. You were the sweetest dog I've ever had, the easiest to be with every day. You loved running, walking, traveling, being with your mom & sister (and we loved being with you). I think of you often. Sometimes I see your cuteness in a cloud formation and know you're still with me.
Big hugs & kisses to my sweet baby. Happy Birthday!!!
Missing you sweet baby girl! I thought of you the other night as I was falling asleep. You always slept up against my heart, cradled in my arms. I noticed you were missing and was wishing you were there again. I already apologized to Georgie for making you two wear those antlers for a Christmas picture one year! You were pretty cute though. Wishing you were here for Christmas this year, although I know you are in spirit. Your ornament is on the tree. I think about you every time I put it there.
