Fiona will be the perfect pet. In just one week, she easily follows the other two females outside to do her business. She eats well, and sleeps for a good 6 hours a night, before having to go outside. She sits with the other two dogs in my lap to watch TV at night for a few hours before bedtime. She loves to play fetch the rubber ball (this one has a bell inside that she likes), and she sides across the floor trying to stop it. She immediately wins the heart of anyone who lays eyes on her. Family, friends, and neighbors remark how beautiful her coat is. We saw the vet the very next morning (Saturday) at 8:00am. He and his wife (also a vet) have Schnauzers, and they immediately remarked on what a great specimen of the breed she is. She checked out in perfect health (of course). We scheduled surgery on the ears for February 23, 2017. The vets will keep her for a few days for me, so that she can recuperate without worrying about my other two dogs.
I registered her as "Trahan's Charming Fiona".
Thanks for everything!!
