How to Make a Schnauzer Smile
A recipe for laughs that will last years to come: Take Dog and Dog's Friend (we are dog-watching our friend's dog) up hill on a sledding trip. Let them off their leashes, and let the fun begin.
This is the best action shot I got - the dogs were chasing each other back up the sledding hill, as they're running toward me I could SWEAR that I saw them SMILING - look at that face! Pure Puppy Joy. Phantom is in the lead, and Tango close behind.
This is our friend's Dog, Tango. He is just a little older than Phantom. The dogs get along extremely well and have a great time, especially when they're outside. Normally we can't let Tango off the leash, but the snow was so deep, and Tango is a bit of a dandy when it comes to high drifts - he will only walk in the paths made by the sled or other people's trails - so we let him off the leash and he and Phantom ran up and down the sledding hill chasing kids about 20 times.
