They may not be Schnauzers, but…

…we still have dogs! We are grateful to all our Schnauzer fans for following the lives of Winston and Zack. So if you want some more doggy love, we still have dogs!

Sadie is our rescue shepherd-mix and Sammy is our rescue Chiweenie pup. They are the center of our universe (the way it SHOULD be, right?) and you can meet them and follow their crazy antics online:  Blog | Twitter | FacebookVine.

We look forward to seeing you around the dog farm! 🙂

RIP My Beloved Sir Winston

Rest in peace, my beloved baby boy Winnie. You brought joy to so many of us. No more will you suffer from epilepsy, diabetes, arthritis, or blindness. No little man should have had it so rough at only 9 years old, but you were a trooper!

Run, be free and play with Zack and Jack in your little Schnauzer pack.
I will see you over the rainbow one day again.

Totally Blind Baby

Well, Winston is fully blind now. It took only about a month, but the vet said it wouldn’t be long after the first eye went blind. My poor baby.

Love is Blind…in the Left Eye

“…and the right eye is nearly blind, too,” the Vet told us today about Winston.

It came on just over night, it seemed. The diabetes most likely is the cause.

He turns 9 next week. Based on the seizures, the diabetes, the arthritis and now blindness, I guess that’s the right amount of health issues, in ‘dog years.’

My poor little baby.🐾

Arthritis – Really?

IMG_7157-2IMG_7154-0Ever since his bladder surgery last spring, Winnie hasn’t been able to get around very well. His hind legs have kept him from climbing stairs or running around with his Sadie pup. We finally asked the vet for help, knowing it would probably impact our pocketbook – and it did.

Deramaxx is the miracle drug for his arthritis – and it really works well! He is acting like a puppy – and we haven’t seen that in a few years! He is very happy again, and so are we! Welcome back, little Win.

Hi all! Mama said you were concerned about me, so I wanted to let you know I’m stabilized on my insulin & new special diet. The bladder stones are gone, the stitches out, and Mama & Daddy will spend $70 a month from now on for my new kibble. No more carrots or doggie treats, but that’s ok. I’m back to running around all happy and goofy on the farm, but still shy about having my picture taken. I’m even barking at my shadow again – Mama hasn’t heard me bark much through the illness, so she seems happy about that. See how Schnauzer-esque I am?
Thanks for stopping by!
-Winnie

Winnie’s Checkup

He had his sutures checked, and they weren’t doing as well as the vet had hoped, so now he is back on antibiotics. He’s acting happier and likes going outside, although not peeing as much as he did before the surgery. It used to be every few hours round the clock; now he is sleeping through the night! Yay! I’m looking forward to Thursday and getting his stitches out!
