Schatzie's Story...

First, I'd like to thank all of you who have ventured over to Heart Like A Dog and voted for Schatzie. The voting continues all week and I would greatly appreciate your stopping by and voting for Schatzie everyday.

There has been some confusion in the can only vote 1 time every 24 hours, ie...if you vote today at 3 p.m. you can't vote again until 3 p.m. tomorrow. There is also a limit of 1 vote per IP address. Some have indicated that they are unable to vote. I communicated this to the Blog Admin. and she suggested that you may need to try a different browser. Again, I appreciate you taking the time to vote and am sorry it's seems to be difficult.

Okay, enough of that!! I thought you might be interested in a little history of my girl. 

Schatzie came to us via Paws to Love Rescue out of South Dakota (same rescue as Gracie) on Dec. 31, 2006. Hubby and I drove a couple hours in sleet, snow and very icy roads to pick up our new bundle of fur.

She was very shy...a breeder surrender(unknown reason) and didn't make eye contact with us for 3 days. 
I believe that she didn't meet the breed standard and the breeder just left her in a kennel with no socialization.

Never a lack of toys in this house!!

 She was about the same size as Gracie. 
Gracie age 1, Schatzie @4 months

 She is a bit of a clown

 Looking very regal...@ 4 months

 She has to put up with her crazy sister Gracie....

 Schatzie began her "police" career early...trying to keep Gracie in line!!!

Silly girl....

I'll share some more tomorrow.
Again, thanks for stopping by and now please head on
and cast your vote for Schatzie .

  7. Val, Schatzie is so beautiful-as a young pup and as a grown girl. A clown too-she reminds me of Hunter in the snow; the photos of her on the beach were so beautiful. Made me miss the islands. I've been voting!
