We bought Syd from you, early April, and wanted to give you an update on him! He’s been an amazing dog, albeit a bit clumsy. I’m sending some pictures, we entered him into a local dog show, judged by Eleanor Tomlinson (from Poldark) and he came second best in the puppy class, and first in the class that the judge most wanted to take home! My brothers were chuffed!
It’s lovely to see that Ferncliffe Schnauzers are still in business and still producing fine Schnauzers.
You probably will not remember us – Ian and Jackie from Durham. We bought a gorgeous Schnauzer bitch from you in 2001. Her kennel name was Ferncliffe Helena – we know her as Ellie.
We moved to New Zealand in 2003 and (naturally) Ellie came with us. Fourteen years on, we’re still here, and Ellie, now 15 – 16 in October – is still with us. She’s a bit slower, deaf and just as cantankerous – how we love her!!
I thought you would like to know how much joy and companionship Ellie has brought into our lives.
We said it when we bought her, we just wanted to say it again, thank you for such a lovely dog.
Hi! Otto has settled in well. He’s been out on the bike, to the pub, to the kids’ tennis lessons, to a street party, started his puppy classes and generally been the pup about town . He loves playing in the garden and is getting braver at chasing the cats away. He also likes to ‘help’ my gardening by digging holes and covering himself, and the kitchen, in mud….. and he is definitely the cleverest dog in his puppy class
Best wishes to you and all your schnauzers!
Catherine et al
Ps – despite the fact he has lots of toys he prefers to play with plastic bottles and cardboard boxes. My two sons were exactly the same!
