Scooter will turn 16 in a few months. We weren't looking for a dog when we came across Scooter at a flea market, but my husband fell in love with him and insisted we get him.  

Now if you were to ask hubby to tell you the story, he would tell you that it was me that made the fuss but I will let him have his masculine moment.

So this little tiny black mini schnauzer is what started the addiction.  He was such an easygoing little puppy, I couldn't understand why everyone said schnauzers are stubborn.  I soon learned that he was the exception.

Fast forward 15.5 years and Scooter has given us a couple of scares in the last year. He unfortunately has really bad teeth that are causing issues and we cannot get any dental work done because he has a grade 5 heart murmur. Nursing him through two tooth abscesses has been a challenge but he has pulled through like a champ. He has taught mamma a lot about the importance of good dental hygiene and natural remedies.


  1. He doesn't have any gray whiskers in his beard yet. He is certainly a handsome boy.

  2. Thanks for your comment. Scooter has aged well. I like to think that taking really good care of him has kept him with us for so long. He takes his medicine with a dab of peanut butter and I also give him a glucosamine chew and a dab of coconut oil every day. He definitely is a handsome guy.


Thank you for your comment. I appreciate all feedback.
