My Good Name means everything to me!
I wanted to send a quick email to let you know how disappointed and shocked I am upon reading the nasty complaints regarding your breeding program. My Cooper
(Cooper x Ashland, 2008) will be 3 years old on March 14th, and is a product of your quality breeding program. I cannot put into words how much joy Cooper brings
to my family and I. His intelligence, obedience, and never ending devotion has made him a great companion and addition to our family. That was exactly what I was looking
for 3 years ago when I contacted you about your breeding program and I have never doubted my decision to bring Cooper home. I am always more than willing to speak
with others who may have questions (or concerns) about your breeding program. Please do not hesitate to use me as a reference for potential customers. I plan to send you
pictures of Cooper in a month or two and update you on how he is doing. Please continue working to improve the Miniature Schnauzer breed. Those of us who have purchased
a puppy from you in the past can appreciate your hard work and integrity.
Shipping and getting your puppy home safely:
Ideally, we would like for you to drive here and see the nice conditions and meet the parents of your puppy. But if this is a hardship and shipping is
the only option, we are willing to ship an older puppy who has had all its shots. Taking a puppy home by plane as a carry on is another option. Here
are some airports you can call: Columbus (CMH) is the largest airport located near us here in Ohio. Call: 1-614 239-4000
Rickenbacker Airport 7161 Second St. Columbus, Ohio 43217 Call: 614 491-1401
We also have a small craft airport called Bolton Field close to our home. Bolton Field location: 2000 Norton Rd Columbus, OH 43228 614 851-9900
More information about these airports can be found at this link: http://www.columbusairports.com/contact/divisions.asp
Ground service is another option. They pick the puppy up here and transport the puppy to your door. Just Google Pet Ground Service to find companies
who provide this service in your area.
Things you might want to consider before buying a new puppy.
First off: Thank you so much for delivering Mona in such great shape. I love the care package, and misc things provided. I'll be talking with you on a regular basis, and asking some questions here
and there. Mona made it back with no problems whatsoever... didn't get sick, and no accidents along the way. Put a puppy pad down in the floor board, she used that twice like a good girl. Once
getting home, she ate very well, was constantly looking around for more. She of course acted as though she hasn't eaten in weeks. :O) Very cute to watch. Didn't get much sleep last night as I
expected. But everything is going very well... she is adapting to her new home very well. Thanks again. Talk with you soon. FLINT
Just wanted to let you know that ďBaxterĒ did great on the long ride home. We all held him and loved him all the way home. We came home to the hurricane on Saturday and had no electricity from 7 am Saturday
until 7 pm last night. Thankfully we have a generator so we were able to have lights and water for part of the time. Baxter was unaffected by the inconvenience and cried when he needed to go out -about every 2 hrs
Friday night and 3 times Saturday night. He did much better last night Ė only needed to go out at 2am this morning. He went right back to sleep when we came in. We took Baxter to the vet Saturday morning. Our vet
agreed with your recommendation regarding the shots (he was actually very impressed that a breeder cared so much for the health of the puppy after selling him). Our vet checked him over, and as we knew, found that he
is very healthy. He wants him to put on a little more weight this week and try next weekend for his shots. Jack and Baxter met at the kennel on Saturday morning. The greeting went well. Jack is beginning to warm up to Baxter
and they are establishing their hierarchy quite peacefully. Baxter follows Jack a lot of the time and tries to play but Jack isnít quite sure how to play with him. Baxter has learned his name, he has learned to sit for his food and treats
(which is a piece of food when he goes potty in the right place) and if we are downstairs he will sometimes go to the back door when he has to potty. He has had very few accidents in the house and actually used the puppy pad a few
times when the rain and wind were too bad to take him out. had our puppy party to welcome Baxter home on Sunday and both Baxter and Jack were on their best behavior. We had all guests wash their hands before greeting Baxter
(even the guests without pets). He entertained everyone with his playfulness and wooed all the women with his puppy breath and kisses. He is quite the little charmer, and seems to prefer women to men, but he willingly went to anyone
who wanted to hold or play with him. We are getting him on a schedule for meals, playtime, and naptime. He eats very well and so far hasnít tried for Jackís food and Jack hasnít wanted to check out Baxterís dish, but we stay close by just
in case weíre needed. I had forgotten how cute puppies are when they play. Baxter played with his shadow this morning before he turned his attention to his toys. Of course anything that hangs down (pants legs, robes, shoe stringsÖ) is
fair game to him. We had to put a small bell on his collar so we could keep track of him when weíre walking since he is always either on our heels or beside us. I love that when he gets tired he wants to crawl up in a lap to go to sleep. He has
brought so much joy into our lives already. I have some pictures on my phone to send to you when I can figure out how. Iíll also send you puppy updates occasionally if thatís okay with you. Thank you for all your hard work in bringing up healthy
puppies. Brenda and Harvey

If youíve never had a SchnauzerÖ now is the time. Schnauzers make great family pets. They are non-allergenic, playful and smart.
Some say they can easily teach a Schnauzer up to twenty-five words. We realize how important good breeding is.
Our adult dogs are kept up to date on shots, wormed year round with CERF testing done on our stud. We exercise and
play with our dogs every day. Only healthy adults produce healthy puppies. And this is also why we breed champion lines.
ďChampions best represent the breed not only for great looks but also for health and sweet temperamentsĒ.
When you pick your puppy up, we only accept "" for the Balance.
It's hard to believe little Jilly Bean is grown up already. She still looks like and puppy and probably always will.
Isn't Jilly adorable in her new maternity top? She is such a sweetheart.
Not a good hair day for Jilly Bean. Ashland showing off her new maternity top.

A letter to those getting a puppy from me.
Dear New Puppy Owners,
I have been breeding since 1999 and Iíve worked really hard to be the best breeder that I can possibly be. I started my breeding program with healthy dogs
that I acquired from vets and other breeders who work hard to weed out genetic problems. And to assure even healthier puppies, we donít line breed
or in-breed our dogs. But even with all the good careful breeding your puppy has, it is still a pedigree dog prone to certain health issues. Fortunately, our
breeding dogs have never had genetic health problems, skin problems or even Schnauzer bumps. And I attribute this to good breeding, a healthy diet, exercise
and good veterinary care. Iím not in this business to sell heartaches and I certainly donít want your puppy coming down with a genetic defect especially when it
could be prevented. Your puppy will depend on you to feed him healthy food, interact with him, protect his health with good veterinary care and teach him good behavior.
Miniature Schnauzers are very smart; one of the smartest breeds there are. People tell me Schnauzers are able to learn many different tricks and recognize up to 25 different
words. Minis come in different colors and with unique personalities. Some Miniature Schnauzers are quiet and laid back, some are more spirited while some are alpha dogs.
I love them all, especially the alphas. Alphas are highly intelligent and natural born leaders. When trained and handled right, alpha dogs are the most devoted.
High spirited, laid back or alpha, to feel safe and secure, your puppy must see you as its leader. No matter how smart and cute a dog is;
one that growls and bites, even as a puppy, is a bad dog and cannot be enjoyed and trusted. To help offset bad behavior, I highly recommend puppy school followed
by obedience school for all you new puppy owners. Itís not the puppy who really needs the schooling; it is you who needs to learn how best to train your puppy.
Invest in Cesar Milanís Book. Watch The Dog Whisper on National Geographic and other dog related shows. The more you understand your dog, the easier training will become.
Signs of neglect and abuse come in different forms. And Iím sure you would never intentionally neglect or abuse your puppy. But sometimes what you may consider love,
could ruin a perfectly normal dog, especially a bright puppy. Here are some things to avoid:
(1) Never feed table scraps and other food (junk treats) harmful to your puppy even when it is full grown. I donít care if your puppy loves table food, it will only lead to problems.
ďAny dog will choose table food over dog foodĒ. I hate when I see an obese or overweight dog. It shows neglect not love. Skip the junk treats! ďA dogís own dog food is a treat
if fed out of its masterís handĒ. If you keep your dog on a healthy diet, it will not only lead a happier life but live a longer life.
(2) Never let your dog spend the entire day in an empty house. This is cruelty! It is extremely important to interact, play or walk your dog every day.
(3) Never, never allow your puppy to nip, bite and get away with bad behavior. Letting a cute little puppy get away with snapping, growling, (even one time) chewing on furniture, shoes,
nipping (even one time) is wrong. This will eventually escalate to harmful bites followed by law suits and possibly having to euthanize your dog for safety reasons.
I know you love your puppy and I want you to have the best pet ever for years to come. If for some reason you are unable to care for your puppy, I will help you place it
in another home. But I canít help you place a puppy with bad behaviorÖ one that bites and canít be trusted. I refuse to reward people who neglect our puppies.
Spay/ Neutering Ear Cropping Shots
This is very important. I cannot and donít take responsibility for complications that may arise from spay/ neutering or ear cropping. I am not responsible for any medical care done
by any veterinarian. It is wise to talk everything over with your vet before having your pet put to sleep or under general anesthetic for any procedure. Ask your vet's opinion about future
health issues or a possible personality change that may arise from Spay/Neutering or ear cropping.
Shots: I will not take responsibility for adverse side affects from your pet's booster shots. Talk all concerns over with your vet. Ask your vet's opinion about annual booster
shots verses autoimmune related problems. Some vets donít feel it is necessary to give annual shots year after year for stay at home pets. And some pets may need certain inoculations
suited to the life style and area you live in.
Worms/Parasites: Even though your puppy was wormed and raised in clean conditions, it may break out with parasites or worms soon after going to its new home.
This is caused from stress for which I have no control.
