Warhawk, you have a mini Schnauzer? Rock on man, we have 2 ourselves. A salt and pepper, and a pure black one. Although they yap quite a bit, I wouldn't trade them for anything. They are a great breed.
Yeah, my wife's family has had them exclusively for years (since she was a little girl) and she loves them. I love the fact they don't shed.
Every once in a while we discuss getting a Standard if we ever get the room and inclination for a larger dog. Anyone know any pros/cons between the mini/standard (besides the obvious - size, food consumption, etc.)?
I grew up with shepherd mixes and wanted something bigger when we talked about getting a dog, but we got her for free from a local family and she's a great dog. I've really come to appreciate her, especially since we live in town and have a small yard - a larger dog wouldn't be a good idea. I hate dog hair all over stuff, so she is one of the few breeds we could have as an indoor dog, which my wife wanted.
DJ is also salt and pepper, about 7-8 years old or so and is great with our 19-month-old son. Yes, she gets yippy at times, but she's a lot of fun. I still say anything under 15-20 pounds isn't a dog, just a large rat.
