When we first decided to get a small dog, I conducted extensive research, and it was readily apparent to me that the Miniature Schnauzer was just the breed of dog that I was looking for. I wanted a fairly small inside dog that doesn't shed, (or have that "doggy" odor), a reasonably priced, lovable dog who exhibits a high degree of intelligence. Miniature Schnauzers are alert, active, and affectionate companions who double as watchdogs. They bark to warn, but not for recreation. They are house dogs who love the outdoors. You will not find a more loyal and constant companion than your Miniature Schnauzer!! An excellent web-site for checking out the ranking of your dog's intelligence (by breed) can be found at: http://www.petrix.com/dogin/intelligence.html.
One way or another, we all have to find what best fosters the flowering of our humanity in this life, and dedicate ourselves to that.

You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, 'My God, you're right! I never would've thought of that!'
