Family First » schnauzer http://familyfirst.com Servings Families Online since 1998 Fri, 02 Oct 2015 20:25:31 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 Adopt-A-Schnauzerhttp://familyfirst.com/adopt-a-schnauzer.html http://familyfirst.com/adopt-a-schnauzer.html#comments Mon, 18 Jun 2007 00:40:04 +0000 http://familyfirst.sandbox.infomediainc.com/?p=3552 I began a lifelong love affair with miniature schnauzers back in 1984. A good friend of mine in my place of residence at that time, Amarillo, Texas, was a breeder. His dogs and I hit it off. The cocky little terriers were just the right mix of whiz, vinegar, courage, intelligence, loyalty, and love to hit it off with me.
Five years later, I obtained McDuff. He was an amazing animal. Though schnauzers are not bred for water, he would jump into any pond or lake and swim his brains out. He was also a loving, faithful companion until his untimely death at the age if fourteen.
Now, I have Dugenheimer. He loves his rubber chicken, and will quietly deposit it in a place convenient for me in the hope that I will locate it and throw it so he can recover it. For instance, while laying tile in my bathroom today, he kept laying it in the box containing the tile.

How can you not love a dog like that?
With that, I present today’s FamilyFirst pick: Adopt-A-Schnauzer. Here’s their mission:
So, you want to adopt a Schnauzer, huh? Great idea! Want to hear an even better idea? Rescue an adult Schnauzer. No pooch is too old for puppy love and puppies are only puppies for a few months after all, right? Oh, you have your heart set on a cute little puppy?
Trust me, my most precious memories are from my schnauzers as ADULTS. Consider adopting an adult schnauzer. I predict that you will become as passionate about the breed as I have.

OEDILFhttp://familyfirst.com/oedilf.html http://familyfirst.com/oedilf.html#comments Sat, 23 Sep 2006 00:05:37 +0000 http://familyfirst.sandbox.infomediainc.com/?p=3302 Our FamilyFirst site today
May delight you or maybe dismay
Its theme, you discern
Is that poetry spurned
It’s limericks! What can I say?
Yes, today’s FamilyFirst site is called OEDILF: The Omnificent English Dictionary In Limerick Form.
The site is home to thirty thousand limericks! That’s a mighty large number, you see.
You type in the word you’re looking for and see it come up in various limericks. Let’s try one purely at random: schistosomiasis.

Ah, here we go:
The blood fluke’s a parasite worm;
If you catch one, you’ll soon feel infirm.
In fact, you can die of this
(Trematode worms make me squirm.)
See how it works?
You can also get limericks at random or browse by topic. By default, a content filter is on. Given the bawdy history of the limerick, remove it at your own risk.
I searched for schnauzer and didn’t find one. So to close this piece, I will humbly submit my own:
The king of canines is the schnauzer
A lovably fun rabble rouser
With a heart that’s as big
As a Texas oil rig
But they pee on the carpet. NO, BOWSER!
