Schnauzers (pronounced sh-now-zer) originated in Germany where they
were bred to help on farms with rounding up sheep and other livestock. They also
helped to keep the rat population down. Today they come in three sizes:
standard, which is the original schnauzer, miniature, and giant. The most
common size in South Africa is the mini schnauzer.
There were dogs in Germany BEFORE the
schnauzer became a breed of course! See origins of dogs to read
how breeds develop.
|Some folk are too soft with their
dogs and let them do what they please. But dogs like to be told what to
do. When there are limits on their behaviour, and boundaries on their
territory, the dogs are secure, knowing that we love them enough to
teach them. It's the same with kids. They need to be taught what's
right & wrong. Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are
really my followers. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will
set you free." John 8, 31,31. (Most folk want to be free, but don't
like the "if" bit LOL!)
