A thread for Rosie and Edie

The Miniature Schnauzer is a smallest dog in the Schnauzer breed and originated in the mid-to-late 19th Century from Germany. The Miniature Schnauzer is a cross between the Standard Schnauzer and other smaller breeds such as the Poodle. A miniature Schnauzer is a spunky, but aloof dog who does things their own way. They tend to be good guard dogs without the tendency to bite.

I always try to get out at the weekend with Rosie and Edie and today we got out for a lovely walk round the southern cliffs on Guernsey from Moulin Huet to Saints Bay. Both girls are knackered and are now fast asleep :)

Some lovely pics there Sam.

I hadn't really noticed before how much darker Edie is than Rosie - they are both P/S right?

Thanks, Mike.

Yes, both P&S and both stripped !

Edie's undercoat is much darker than Rosie's and she has still to lose some of her black puppy coat on the top of her head and her back.

We had another glorious day in Guernsey today; at least until late afternoon when it began to rain but before that it was sunny and was the first day of the year that we've felt some heat in the sun. Rosie is running ahead of us now with Edie and it's lovely to see her confidence grow.

The first part of the walk was through a wooded valley called Petit Bôt; the girls got quite a bit of mud on them so we walked down to the beach hoping to get some of it washed off. There were quite a few other dogs and Edie was happy to go off and explore while Rosie was happier to sit beside me and watch :)

It's my wedding anniversary today and my wife, knowing what's close to my heart, commissioned a local artist to make a paper cut collage of Rosie and Edie as a present for me. I'm absolutely thrilled with it and she has managed to capture their "look" brilliantly.

That's lovely
Was it Janice Earley? I ask as the other week when OH was walking Barney she took loads of photos of him to do some artwork, but I don't know what she does.

Hi Alison, it was a lady called Sue Henry who did it.
