Watch me fly Are we starting to see a pattern in our Beamish photo sessions? We interrupt this program for a....ahem washroom break Edee shows Beamish some serious 'mad teeth' to stop the boy wonder.

The Standard Schnauzer is renowned for it's enthusiastic and dedicated abilities as a watchdog, qualities which Daisy displays perfectly as she watches me work on the computer. She is dedicated to her task and refuses to leave her sentry...even though bored to tears.

A smiling Juno poses for the camera Sunday as we had a fun afternoon playing Frisbee and Agility before she left for her new home. As a breeder I have made the difficult decision to place some of my older dogs over the years, my decision to place Juno was made a few weeks ago. I had at first thought to spay her and keep her as my Agility buddy, but then reality paid a visit and I had to accept the fact that there just wasn't enough of 'Lori' available for my other dogs if I were to spend so much time with Juno. Juno left me Sunday afternoon, a little confused, but in the long run I know this is the perfect home for her, and the right decision for everyone. First updates from her new family have been very positive. We will give her 6 weeks to settle in and if all goes as well as hoped, she will have a great life and WAY more attention then I could give her, she deserves it.

Summer has made an exit and we are well into Autumn, one of my favorite seasons. I am cheating a bit, these photos were taken October 2008, however I have an excuse. I have spent the last two months raising not one, but, two litters of pups, yep 14 Standard Schnauzers! Trust me it is not for the faint of heart. Last weekend the older litter left for their new homes and this coming weekend litter number two will be on their way to start their new lives. I am exhausted and will be going totally WP (without pups) for the winter...boy am I looking forward to that. Just north of me there is a corn field, around 5pm flocks and flocks of Canadian Geese fly in for the night, I caught some of them coming in before the sun went down.
