Last Thursday Allie returned from her year long quest...to be bred. Unfortunately, no puppies were produced, so she was spayed and her teeth were cleaned. She has blended right into the household again, and is the most vocal one. She follows me around wherever I go, and the best parts are her wagging nub of a tail, and the fact that she is the only Schnauzer that licks my face.
She accepts me brushing her teeth very well, and today she got a bath in the sink. Next week she will get professionally groomed, when the bank account is a little fuller.
