Howie Goes Home

Howie got his beard shaved off last week. It was a knotted mess, mostly from sticking his snout through the grass, eating the dirt and making holes in the ground. Add drinks of water and you've got a fine tangle.

A few days ago a Schnauzer lover and liaison that I've become friendly with over the last 8 years of rescue, Sue, posted Howie on her blog, 'Idyll Haven' and asked Tom Ryan of 'Following Atticus' fame to post Howie on his Facebook page, and he did.

The Mom that put an application in for Howie saw the post...she knew he was the one, they had been looking at Mini's for the last year and wasn't feeling any connections...until now.

The family came to our campsite today with their Schnauzer Humphrey and it just worked perfectly. Such a nice family with a long history of Schnauzer ownership. The two teenagers fell for him as well. It took some time for Howie, but the stars aligned.

Thanks Sue for your foresight.


  1. Yay! I knew there had to be someone out there for him! The power of the internet continues to impress me.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts...
