Arrival Story: Maggie was rescued from life in a cage. We took Max to this groomer who decided she wanted to sale Schnauzer's so she got puppies and put them in cages and there they stayed, we would go in and they got older and older. My heart would break when I saw her, She was 6 months old when we finally couldn't take it any more and we saved her!! We never went back to that groomer, so poor little Maggie didn't have to remember that place, She has never been in a crate or cage again.
I have a new brudder, his name is Scotty. He started out as a foster brother, but we loved him so much, that we decided that he needed to stay with us forever. He is so happy with us, he keeps a big smile on his face all the time. I think he really likes Max more than he likes me.
Here in this house... I will never know the loneliness I hear in the barks of the other dogs 'out there'. I can sleep soundly, assured that when I wake my world will not have changed. I will never know hunger, or the fear of not knowing if I'll eat. I will not shiver in the cold, or grow weary from the heat. I will feel the sun's heat, and the rain's coolness, and be
allowed to smell all that can reach my nose. My fur will shine, and never be dirty or matted.
Here in this house... There will be an effort to communicate with me on my level. I will be talked to and, even if I don't understand, I can enjoy the warmth of the words. I will be given a name so that I may know who I am among many. My name will be used in joy, and I will love the sound of it!
Here in this house... I will never be a substitute for anything I am not. I will never be used to improve peoples' images of themselves. I will be loved because I am who I am, not someone's idea of who I should be. I will never suffer for someone's anger, impatience, or
stupidity. I will be taught all the things I need to know to be loved by all. If I do not learn my lessons well, they will look to my teacher for blame.
Here in this house... I can trust arms that hold, hands that touch...knowing that, no matter what they do, they do it for the good of me. If I am ill, I will be doctored. If scared, I will be calmed. If sad, I will be cheered. No matter what I look like, I will be considered beautiful and known to be of value. I will never be cast out because ! I am too old, too ill, too unruly, or not cute enough. My life is a responsibility, and not an afterthought. I
will learn that humans can almost, sometimes, be as kind and as fair as dogs.
Here in this house... I will belong. I will be home.
OK, so...Mom thought it would be such a great idea to take me and Max to the groomer's last weekend. We got our short summer Schnauzer cuts. Well I'm freezing my stubby tail off!! I have started shivering and shaking, Mom had to pull out my Christmas sweater and put on me. It's like Christmas in July....bol! I know the neighbors wonder why this little dog looking out the window has on a sweater and its 90 degrees outside. Well, it's like winter time in here, if they only knew!! Max doesn't seem to be cold like this. All I know, is until I get some fur back, It's Christmas here!!
