He is just the best guy, and very close to both of us.

To cute. They really are great dogs. Not sure how much longer he will be with us. He just recently started wanting to sleep with us instead of his bed side kennel. Our toy poodle did that about six months before she past at the age of fourteen. We also have a teacup poodle now. She is three. This is Mimi Shea with her favorite toy.

Buddy sure is a cutey too, but we're biased! Buckley has been sleeping with us since about day 1! I hope that is not a bad thing... He's half the reason we wanted an egg with a queen size bed. For such a little fellow, he sure can take up room!

Best of luck to ya with Buddy. We know how tough it is to have one of our best friends pass.

Tom and Melanie, Jagger lives with me and is in training as an assistants dog. He goes with me everywhere (shopping, doctors, bank, restaurants etc) as I am not permitted to leave him with anyone (not even for half an hour) that has not been formally trained to babysit him. He is owned by Pacific Assistance Dogs.

PADS is a well respected small non profit organization here in BC and Alberta who's mission it is to provide assistants dogs to those with a mobility disability (as well as a fairly small number of hearing dogs) at a *very* minimal cost to the client. Those dogs that decide they are not into being an assistants dog may go onto to become a Canine Assisted Intervention dog - many of the large hospitals and police stations etc. have such dogs on staff. Or he may do airport or border sniffing work. If none of those jobs works out for them they may become a VIP - very important pet for a family with a child with autism for example.

Yes PADS does continue to assist the client with the dog throughout the dogs life as well as help with the rehoming of them once the dogs working life is over. They are not a really big organization so keeping tabs on the well being of the dogs is not as big a challenge as it is with larger organizations such as Guide Dogs for the Blind for example. PADS does though belong to a large group of non profit assistants dog kennels here in NA and as a result Jagger was born in Pennsylvania - but both parents are seeing eye dogs out of NY. The groups shares pups around NA in order to improve blood lines at each of their kennels.

Jagger actually has his own webpage with PADS where one can follow his and my training journey. Although I have done lots of obedience training in the past this is a whole new learning experience for me as well.

Yes having him with me 24/7 for 2 years and then handling over the leash to another party will be a tough one! Although admit somedays I would gladly give him back - especially after a very trying attempt to get my grocery shopping done quickly with a pup that thinks they need to do a quality assurance check on every item on the bottom shelf. Not looking forward to hand over day but through my volunteer work with Alpine Canada which in part includes working with Para Olympic skiers on an international level, I am aware of the long waiting list for assistance dogs. At the end of the day seeing Jagger making someones life a lot easier will help - I hope!!

Interesting Carol. Not many could or would do something like that. Way to go!

We travel with 2 Munchkin cats. Munchkins are the "Little People" in the cat world, like Corgi or Dachshund dogs. Munchkins beg easily, so you see Ellie doing it. She knows that if she wants something, that is all she has to do. Toby can do it, but he is not so quick to do it. Here is Toby and Ellie.

Our schnoodle is part poodle (he has poodle hair), and part schnauzer. The schnauzer part really comes out when we go camping...

Frank, the video link is marked "This video is private". I was looking forward to seeing Buckley in action. Maybe you can change a setting?

Try it now Tom. I can view it, but when I went to YouTube it was apparently not published yet, so I did that, & then checked the settings. It should be public.

That worked. I can tell he really digs camping. Sorry, couldn't help that. We had two mini schnauzers and they were awesome dogs. Buckley is a winner too! Thx.

Yes Tom, he really does dig camping - everywhere we go! As well as our back yard. He's also a "bone" dog, and loves to bury bones. We never had a dog like this.

Thanks,

Frank

You probably already know this, but Schnauzers are the only German terrier breed. "Terrier" is derived from "terra" or earth. Terriers were bred to go to ground for vermin, etc., so Buckley is true to his heritage.

Our last Mini Schnauzer, Gunner was one tough little dog. He was mauled by coyotes, stung by 100+ bees and lived to 17.5 years! He was blind and deaf for his last few years, but still had a passion for living. He's been gone for 6 years, but we still miss him.

Give Buckley an extra pat on the shoulder for me,

Tom
