Schnauzer Day

Every year in August, the Gateway Miniature Schnauzer Club has "Schnauzer Day at the Dog Museum" held at the beautiful AKC Museum of the Dog located here in St. Louis.  This activity involves many club members, whether helping to advertise, making presentations or having their dog ready to visit with the public.

Schnauzer Day is for all schnauzer lovers.  All three breeds - miniature, standard and giant - are present with their handlers to answer questions.  The information presented includes conformation, grooming, health and pet therapy plus rally, obedience and agility demonstrations.  Our attendees always express a lot of interest and ask many questions.  The museum hosts a day for many different breeds, but our Schnauzer Day has set the attendance record with 165 attendees.  The pictures above are from one of our Schnauzer Days.

This picture tells it all.  From the left, Nancy Lincoln, Marilyn Bock, Teresa Handlen and Chris Burgess.  As you can see, they are not wasting any time!!  This is what good friends are all about.  See below.

 A note from Clay:

Organizations, I have been a member of many, but none like the Gateway Miniature Schnauzer Club. On Labor Day in Blue Springs, MO, Nancy and Major were walking from the crating area to the agility ring when she tripped on loose floor covering and broke her hip.

Seven weeks later three grooming angels came to our house, one all the way from Pekin IL, to convert our three shaggy minis into ring ready pooches. Teresa Handlen arranged to have Chris Burgess and Marilyn Bock plus grooming equipment arrive at eight o'clock to start the marathon session. Teresa drove in Friday afternoon and we had the pleasure of spending quality time with a good friend and a premiere miniature schnauzer groomer.

I wish there was a word more powerful than Thanks.  Rocky may know what that word is but he is fast asleep in his bed next to my desk.  What a great group of Schnauzer Loving folks.

A note from Nancy:

There is nothing anyone could have volunteered to do for us that would mean more or be of more help than to groom the dogs!  You don't think about the logistics of doing this until you can't.  Clay is so right to call them grooming angels. There are no words to thank them enough for taking their time to do this for us.  We will never forget their thoughtfulness.
