Schnauzer-Palooza is All in the Family

With proud owners coming from as far away as Santa Rosa and Oakley, members of the Standard Schnauzer Club of Northern California organized a walk around the Lafayette Reservoir last Friday afternoon. Most of the canines in this group are champions, winning prestigious awards from dog shows across the country, descendents from great Grandma Sophie of Blackhawk Standard Schnauzers. Despite their rock star status, there wasn't a diva in site. Jackie-O was Standard Schnauzer of the year - two years running, Beau has won over 90 "Best of Breed" awards, Sophie has retired from the show ring and spends her days chasing frisbees. One owner describes the breed as, "smart, sweet and spirited." A smaller group of local schnauzers and their people can be found walking the Res most mornings.
