Life is very amazing. Who would think that having a little blog would change your life in so many ways you didn’t expect. This is Astro. He is a three-year-old guy who so far has lived his life in a puppy mill in Pennsylvania. But his puppy mill got shut down, and he made his way to Denise, who does miniature schnauzer rescue. I met Denise on the blog, I don’t even remember how. Now, Astro will be coming to my house. I went to see Denise on Thursday to meet my little guy and affirm the match. He is very shy, but very, very sweet. Denise is not shy and very, very funny and wonderful. Her blog: On the Verge of Snapping. We had a great time — as if we had been best friends in high school and were re-connecting years later. Of course, we also took some time to go vintage-shopping. I’ll report more on that tomorrow. Meanwhile, meet Astro. I’ll pick him up at Denise’s on Jan. 25 to bring him to his forever home. 🙂
You are going to love Astro (Love the name). I have a Schnoodle who is more
Schauzer than Poodle. I say she has personality plus. Never had a dog with so much spunk. She too was from a puppy mill. I also have two resuced Shih-tzus. I can’t wait to see more pictures.
Oh, congrats! Enjoy the new family member, hope we get to see more of him.
Denise, you underestimate what you do, anyone who gives animals a home,love and rescue from such horrible lives is very appreciated no matter how big or small they are. And Pam too for adopting sweet Astro.
OH! Lucky Astro! I grew up with miniature schnauzers. We always had two at a time. They are such a sweet breed of dog. Stinkin’ cute too.
Kelly, I agree and when I talk to the new owners after a couple weeks, they confirm it and I think the humans have an extra bit of happy, too.
MaryDeluxe, thank you for your information on the Amish, I definitely would have set that thought straight. You are right, they do not regard them as little souls as many do, they are a commodity.
Andrea! thanks for the name idea of Hilda, I love it! and if another female comes in at sometime without a name and Hilda fits, she’s definitely getting it!
Thank you everyone for the appreciation of what I am doing with these dogs. I do but a pinch of what others in rescue service do.
ps: if I didn’t like Pam so much I might just keep Astro myself! — he’s a love! when he sits in your lap he melts into your body and looks up at you so adoringly…makes me just want to cuddle with him all day.
Congratulations on your adoption! I’m sure that grateful pup will give you more love than you can imagine!!
Aw, that makes me so happy I’m crying. Thanks for giving him a good home. He looks so sweet.
