Sketchbook Speed of Light, call name Baron, is a standard ... weeks old, and a heck of a nice little pup.

Oooh, I do love a standard. Looks like VERY nice furnishings on him also. Many standards - even very well bred ones - have skimpy furnishings.

This is kind of a new thing for us - I've never had a dog that required much grooming. On the other hand, I've never had a dog that didn't shed, either, so I guess there are tradeoffs.
Standards are absolutely incredible dogs. There is virtually nothing they can't do - in the right hands. And their brains and thinking processes are drop-your-jaw amazing.

He's given us quite a few "wow" moments already. We're doing the clicker thing, which is new to us, and he's really taking to it. I've never seen a pup learn new things so fast.

Sketchbook Speed of Light, call name Baron, is a standard schnauzer. He's the offspring of CH Scarlights Seasar TD NA and CH Sketchbook Moonlit Madness. He's about 15 weeks old, and a heck of a nice little pup. More pics soon.

Ooh, a convert. I gotta tell you - every person I know with a non-shedding dog has said it would be very difficult to go back to dog hair. When we got our first schnauzer I figured it meant just LESS hair. I was amazed. Random leg hairs are pretty easy to brush off the pillow.

The grooming is just a routine. And an expense, even if you do it yourself. I know, I know. If you love your shedding dog, you don't REALLY mind the hair. I know I didn't. But non-shedding is very nice.

Our breeder used to raise standards along with her miniatures. The stories she tells of them are just incredible. If you don't like a thinking dog, the stories would scare you. It just made me want one all the more. It was the standard that figured out her new crate latches in about five minutes - and figured them out to the point of releasing not all the other dogs - just the ones she wanted to play with.
Has anyone warned you that most standards LOVE to play in the toilet? Most standards I know have what I find to be an endearing habit of holding your hand in their mouths. I do not know why but it's one of the mysteries of standards that I hope to figure out someday with one of my own.

I am so jealous of you.
