  • Schnoodle hairJennet , Wed Nov 15 4:11pm
    I have a 4 month old schnoodle who favors the schnauzer side. I am wondering about his ears. They are straight hair and look like a schnauzer’s. I groom my own dogs. Will they grow? They haven’t yet. Thanks

    Mac is a littermate of Xena isn't he? I know he's my grandpup. I shouldn't have to ask. But it's hard to keep track. If it isn't for you Kelly, I wouldn't remember any birthdays LOL. Have you seen any sign of cataracts? How about tumors? How about the other Giant Schnoodles on this site? I'm trying to think of who... more

  • Xena Was Blind But Now.....InventingJoy, Sun Sep 4, 2016 8:25pm
    Good news! Xena has cataracts & has been blind for the last couple of years. I was in San Diego last month. For some reason all 3 dogs had goopy eyes. Of course I didn't have my terocycline eye meds with me. while considering spending $100, vet bill, Rx & eye meds purchase, I dropped by a pet store & picked up a... more

    One of the original schnoodles died yesterday leaving her litter mate Zues behind. With tremendous sadness the good bye left 5 kids and 6 best dog friends behind. She was 13 years old and the best sniffer in the world. Our most saddest thing is that we wont say "Zora what are you sniffing" and of course she was spot... more

    Hi everyone, Xena had her surgery & it all went well. She's doing fine. I'm having a hard time recovering. The tumors were tested & she doesn't have cancer. Yay!

    Mac's dinner danceKelly, Mac and Roni, Fri May 20, 2016 12:11am
    I don't know if I ever told you about Mac's dinner dance. I wish that I had recorded it before he tore his ACL. He still does it, but it is not flamboyant like it used to be. He made it up on his own. When he decides that it is dinner time we tell him to do the dinner dance. He has been such a "joy". He has been a... more
