coincidences abounding

So today, H-Mom was sitting at the computer in the gallery and Madison was sprawled out on the floor, snoozing.

A man and a woman and a dog stopped at the window to look in. They were admiring a sculpture displayed in the front of the gallery.

H-Mom stared back out at them, confounded. What was she seeing?

A Giant Schnauzer. A huge black schnauzer. Staring back in at her.

H-Mom jumped up and waved at the couple. "Look," she mouthed. "Come in," she waved, rounding up a sleepy Madison and going to the door.

The couple live in Rio Vista, the neighborhood where H-Mom often walks. Their 6-year-old Giant is Polly, and her mother is Gracie, which makes her related to Madison in a round-about-way. From El Lobo kennel, of course.

What a wonderful conversation. And Madison and Polly sniffed and humpfed and both just flopped out together. Polly was perfect and calm and composed and, of course, huge.

Another day, another Giant. This is becoming rather ... normal.

You, Madison, are the glue that will pull the entire Giant Schnauzer world together! That really IS funky!

Goober love,

Next year you have to enter our beard growing competition. I think you would be formidable.

That's amazing! Even in a big place like South Florida, we're all just a Giant Schnauzer away.



That is so pawsome. Here is to meeting more relatives in 2009.

That is really funny. But cool. Now Madison has another playmate.
