I had to say goodbye to my Julie on January 17, 2012. Click here for my blog post about her passing.
Julie is my Miniature Schnauzer and best friend. I've had her since April of 1998. At that time she was 6-7 years old from what we could figure out. You see, this is her fourth, and I guarantee, last home. She's a real sweetheart. She seemed to lead a pretty sheltered life before. She doesn't really seem to get the concept of playing like most dogs. Dog toys don't seem to interest her. She doesn't really get along with other dogs either.
Part of the reason I was able to get her was that her last owners had two other dogs before they got her and she was never able to get along with them. She's very protective of her territory and she has claimed my house and yard as her own. She's very well behaved, loves almost everybody who comes along.
