Goodbye Dieta, you were loved

Saying goodbye to our Schnauzers is the hardest part. Share your memories here as we bid farewell to our beloved friends. They've crossed the bridge and returned to the meadow in full health and free of injuries. Running free. We won't forget.

So sad to read this today, I was one of many who will miss your stories and Dieta's starring role in them.
Run free beautiful girl, no more pain.

Sorry to hear about your sad loss of Dieta, Donald. We all know when it is time to say goodbye but it still hurts like hell. I lost Binny earlier this year and I know how you must be feeling. Take care.

Donald I am terribly sorry, the saddest times these in our lives we share with these special friends aren't they.

Today, a month to the day since she died, Dieta got the best eulogy possible from an MSP who disagrees with me on almost everything to do with politics but shares my love of dogs and distaste for dog farmers. Not long after I got Dieta I had to spend some time in the US. At which time Dieta stayed with Gillian Martin MSP and her husband. Today, she got a mention in Parliament. How many schnauzers can claim that?

Here's Gillian's bit of the debate.

Sorry Donald, I couldn't make the link work. If Dean is around later perhaps he can sort it.

This works but starts at the beginning.

Dieta gets mentioned about 52 minutes in.

That is a great achievement for her and if the Scottish Parliament ban puppy farms on the back of her story, WOW!

I have fixed your first link. It doesn't like the iframe bit. There is no way to set that player to a specific time to start. (out of my control).

I offer my advice freely, but I am not an expert, breeder, groomer or behaviourist. It is simply my experience of raising pups in a way that seems to make sense.
