Your Schnauzer Stories

We all know that Schnauzers are the most wonderful dogs in the world!

Here's your chance to read about some of the antics that our canine companions get up to. It turns out that Schnauzers all around the world are pretty much the same - they make us laugh, they make us cry, sometimes they drive us crazy, they demand our attention and, best of all, they love us unquestioningly - whatever our faults.

So, come on, tell us about your Schnauzer - or Schnoodle. We really would love to hear your story.
