I could not let this challenge slip by without posting a photo of our beloved miniature Schnauzer, Schatzie.
In German, Schatz means Treasure. Our Schatzie was certainly a treasure to us.
She was smart, loving and full of character.
Schatzie was a gift to our son for his 10th birthday. I bought books on raising dogs so he could practice his reading skills.
One of the techniques he discovered in the books was to teach your dog to ring a bell when they want to relieve themselves outside.
It didn’t take long for Schatzie to learn that skill!
Starting when she was about a year old, she’d lay on the window seat, watching for squirrels and rabbits. Soon we’d hear the bell ring every time she saw a rabbit or squirrel in the yard!
“Let me out! I want to chase them!”
Thereafter, the bell rang a lot!
Nowadays, Schatzie is playing happily with all the other pets in Heaven. We’re sure she’s ringing bells. And we miss her so much.
