• Spring cleaning sale: I've reduced prices on the BladeForums.com Logo Tshirts and PVC patches to move these out of here! We're down to sizes Large & XL on the shirts, but have plenty of every colorway left on the patches. Get them before they are gone! https://www.bladeforums.com/help/bfcmerch/
  • The search engine is not working correctly. We are aware of the problem and are working on a solution. Thank you for your patience.
  • I've implemented new password tools to try and cut down on the number of people getting their profiles compromised by reusing the same passwords that they have used elsewhere. If you are using a password that has been exposed in a data breach and is listed on haveibeenpwned.com you will get a notification to change it the next time you log in. When you choose a new password it will show you the strength; you will need a "Medium" strength or higher password for here, 8 characters or more in length.

    Thanks for your support!

We have rescued 3 Schnauzers to date, (still have all three) God is our house noisy!
Our vet loves us and calls when she finds any.
My parents brought home a miniature Schnauzer while I was away at college. I don't know what that says about me and / or my replacement...and I'm not sure I want to know. 😂

I’ve wanted a German Shepherd for a long time. My wife wants a cute and small “therapy” dog for use with her work.
I want a dog to MAKE you cry and she wants one to help you STOP crying.
So we are at an impasse.

It is my personal experience that small dogs considered cute by their female owners tend to be loud :D

Then again, could be a California thing.

Plus, a big dog can help with both non-physical and physical therapy :)

Cool photo. Wild Death Valley donkeys. Got a new tire there once, after ruining it in Death Valley driving to the “Race Track”.
Nice name for them. Yea, we saw a little herd (8 or so) of them running across the road and then along the shoulder. There was a couple of little ones too.
Hope you won your race too.
