Busy time of the year for every one, I opted to pull a photo from my photo archive. This one taken several years ago of Rosie, one of my favorite schnauzers that I have bred over the years. Little Rosie was herself only bred once, carried a HUGE litter of fourteen to term, however, we had many complications at birth, including a c-section after which we almost lost our Rosie. In the end only five of her pups survived. Rosie was a wonderful mom to those pups including our very special boy Finn, an American & Canadian Champion who has sired some of our most handsome pups with consistently the most outstanding temperaments. Rosie retired from our breeding program and lives with her owner Betty and her other schnauzer Kira enjoying summers at the cottage, hikes, canoe rides and winter vacations down south. Rosie was only about 18 months old when I took this photo of her basking in the sunshine looking very elegant and regal.
