    First of all, this thread was resurrected from April. Second of all, this is a "discussion board" for people to share information. What if a dog owner doesn't realize the pain that's inflicted on their beloved with cropping and is glad to be educated to that fact? (I've known people who didn't think that was possible -- that there's pain -- and was then mortified knowing afterwards and wouldn't have done it).

    So, we're all entitled to our opinions and this is a forum on which to share them. And I personally don't see another person acting "high and mighty to sit up on some throne and judge". But, I guess you don't agree with what a discussion board is for -- don't want conflict (and it's always amicable here, IMO). Everyone agrees with everybody. Well, life doesn't work that way, so I wish you the best of luck in finding another discussion board where everyone agrees with everyone on all subjects. Best wishes.

    I question why it was brought up again in 5 months, unless to stir up the bees.

    Weluvgoldens brought it back up to say how beautiful the dogs where and that she wanted one but couldn't. Then I asked my question and so did oriondw and then people started getting all upitty again.
    It wasn't brought up to stir trouble, just to comment on the pictures from the dog show siemens posted. :)

    It's in NO way your fault at all.....you just commented on how beautiful the dogs were. It's obvious you didn't want an argument. :)

    Hi
    I have a miniature schnauzer Lexi who has her tail docked but not her ears as it is not allowed in uk.
    She has a fault that her ears stand erect not turned over as they should be but in every other way she is perfect.
    I dont know if I like cropped ears or not but the giants in the photos are gorgeous I just love giants.
    Dont let them grind you down every one is entitled to an opinion .
    Love your dogs and enjoy all their body language as I am sure they speak volumes to you.
    There is a lot more cruelty out there than any one has inflicted on these dogs.
    Sue

    I would like to meet a standard or Giant schnauzer some day...all I see are the mini's and while most of them are very cute, I do have to wear earplugs around them because the barks make my ears bleed. :rolleyes: They are very sturdy little dogs though.

    do the big ones bark like the little ones?
     
  13. A good GS is a force to be reckoned with.

    I love the breed, just too much hair and grooming for me.

    Wow this thread is -old-. I do love Giant Schnauzers, they're FUN dogs to be around.

    The thing with Giants is that I don't know if they have the same coat type as the Miniatures. My mini didn't shed, or if she did I never noticed it. She was salt & pepper though and due to being shaved rather than stripped, she had a very soft coat.

    I grew up with a standard Schnauzer, a salt & pepper female named Rosie. Her tail was docked, but her ears were natural. She certainly wasn't a show quality dog...but her personality and temperment were remarkable. I've never owned a dog that was more in-tune with PEOPLE...she could read human emotions so clearly. We got her when I was in kindergarten, and she passed on when I was 19...what a lovely, sweet dog she was. :)

    The GS's are fabulous dogs. I love their poofy legs after they've been shaved!

    Giants are awesome

    Every Giant I have met has been great. Really affectionate and seem like great family dogs.
