The Story Behind the Image: This is George. I met George and his owner in the park one evening. While talking with his owner I discovered that her husband had passed away the year before, and that she had acquired George from the humane society to keep her company. George is twelve and Mary his owner is eighty-nine. They were so much fun to watch and so good for each other. I'm not sure just who had the most "attitude" George or Mary. I might add that Mary still lives by herself, except for George of course...and is still driving.

This was a fun drawing to do...but being a schnauzer owner myself, I had some inside advantages when it came to capturing George's saucy personality and devilish eyes.

Denise,
Thank you...I have to confess it was fairly easy for me. I've been looking at 'Schnauzer eyes' for almost 15 years now.

My Alexis is a Standard Schnauzer, not a miniature. But they both have those special looks and that attitude that only Schnauzers posses.

We just had to have our mini Schnauzer put to sleep (she was 10) Dec 3. Lovely to see "George". We miss our Ditto so much and especially those Schnauzer eyes.
