Purely by chance a very lovely thing happened today. As usual, took Poppy to the country park. We took a slightly different route and happened to come across a couple with another mini Schnauzer. We chatted and the dogs played with great enthusiasm. They live around 30 miles along the coast, so not exactly local. As the conversation went on it became clear that their dog was Poppy's brother!! There was 2 girls and 1 boy in the litter, not a big one.
Poppy is on the left, Sparky on the right.
