schnauzer circles
by: Linda and Max

Your schnauzer is runnning what are known as schnauzer circles!!
This is quite common, Max does it all the time, especially when he is excited.
Outside nshe is doing is for excitement, to burn off steam.
If she does it before you leave her, it may be that she is a bit nervous.
Either way, it's nothing to worry about, shows she is full of energy.
Hope the adoption works out realy well for you all.
