Jake, Windy and Max live with their mom and dad in Ohio. We have shared our lives with dogs for more than 20 years, and I for most of my life.
Jake is an 14-year-old redheaded dachshund. He is on the large side of miniature. When my father passed, there was no question about Jake coming to live with us. Windy is 9, black and tan, and a true mini dachshund. We have had her about 18 months. Her owner had to go into assisted living.
Max is a four-year-old salt and pepper miniature schnauzer. We got him in December 2011 through our veterinarian. He was diagnosed with diabetes, and his elderly owners had to deal with their own health issues. We had a diabetic dog years ago, so we took him.
In September 2011 we lost Hope, a white miniature schnauzer, who spent five years in an Amish puppy mill in Ohio. She was rescued to a foster home by Cincinnati Schnauzer Rescue for about nine months then we adopted her. However, Hope was diagnosed with lymphoma in March 2011, and we treated that cancer as long as we could. We gave her nearly two years of love she never had.
This blog’s focus will not dwell on the cute things the furkids do every day, but it will discuss issues, items, and services relevant to canine care. Thanks for reading.
