This post is long overdue (my apologies to Lorraine!). Last summer, we were delighted to receive a visit from Sadie. Sadie is our dog Jolly's daughter from her litter of 8 in the summer of 2015. Sadie's owner, Lorraine, & her family graciously took time to stop by & show off their little girl. Sadie was everything we hope to see in our puppies - gorgeous, friendly, wonderful with children, & great with our dogs! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her, and we compliment Lorraine & her family on a fabulous job of training & socializing her.
We attempted to get a mother-daughter photo, but Sadie & Jolly didn't find it necessary. Below is the best we could accomplish.
This photo of Sadie & Jolly is a perfect example of mini schnauzers are known for fading over time. Jolly was once coal-black like Sadie, but lightened over time to silvery black color. Both colors are beautiful and both are considered black by American Kennel Club standards.
Since I'm writing on the topic of Jolly's puppies, I'll clue you in on some exciting news - Jolly is expecting puppies in the end of April. This is the first time she is bred to our very own Cooper, and we are eager to see the puppies! She has always given us all-black puppies when bred to Polamalu (a handsome black & silver male owned by our friends). Polamalu's pedigree is strongly black & silver. Cooper looks very similar to Polamalu. He's also black & silver, but he has a lot more salt & pepper in his pedigree. We are guessing Jolly will still have all black puppies due to her pedigree that is full of black, but we'll see!
