When visitors comes around..

Every now and then people that want to be more familiar with the miniatureschnauzers drops by our place to meet the dogs and see what they are like. This week 2 pictures was attached to the mail and I wanted to share them. Maren and Edvard are not used to dogs, and this is how our mini's convinced them that miniatureschnauzers just love people :o)

Inherited cateract

Our Axcium Casanova "Cosmo" has been at stud here in Norway since age 1. Out of his 46 offsprings in 11 litters Norway, plus 13 offsprings in 3 litters in Sweden and 9 pups in 1 in Denmark he has proven to be a good studdog and given breeders really nice dogs to continue breeding on.
But I would like to ask you who has offsprings out of him to be careful when choosing breeding-mates to your dogs out of Cosmo. 2 offsprings has been confirmed with inherited cateract and another offspring is diagonsed with PTHVL.
We do NOT know if he is proven carrier as he never has been test-bred but we choose to inform about this as we know it.
If you want more information, you are welcome to contact me.
