Greetings! My name is Q. I am a schnauzer and here is my favorite park where I enjoy playing ball and just hanging out. By the way, it's great to see that you finally could get your paws on the master's puter while you are alone. I think it's just doggish to be a geek dawg and my being online is just complete doggie heaven. I know most of you guys (dogs) like the constant confrontation out there in the dog-eat-dog world but I am here to tell you that being in the doghouse is also not that bad. That is, if you are an indoor dog.
This is my first attempt at a web page so my first thoughts are to show you pictures of myself in various parts of my doghouse and also share some tidbits of what I have overheard. Don't get me wrong about being a geek, I love "truckin", although I am physically challenged in the category of ears and tongue flapping in the wind. However, I can "out drive, out hustle, out tuff, out muscle, out tow, out run, out work and out fun..." and show you what I got.. with the best of them.
This is to let you know that I and "All My Friends like to Go Riding."
All this work in creating a web page has made me exhausted - I'm going to bed.
As usual I am always Ready - These photos were taken in and after October, 2001.
Thanks for the visit.
This is my portrait which I had done for my 12th Birthday this December 24th.
This is a new addition to our car family.
A bad hair day in my ride to the park - Everyone has these.
Remember, that phrases like 'dog tired' or 'sick as a dog' is dog bashing and deserves a good bark followed by a deep growl.

Lend To You A Dog
"I will lend to you for awhile,
a furry dog," God said,
"For you to love here while he lives,
And to mourn for when heís dead."
"Maybe twelve or fourteen years,
Or maybe two or three,"
"But will you, till I call him back,
Take care of him for me?"
"Heíll bring his charms to gladden you,
So should his stay on earth be brief,"
"Youíll always have his memories
as solace for your grief."
"I cannot promise that heíll stay,
Since all from earth return."
"But there are lessons taught below
I want this dog to learn."
"Iíve looked the whole world over,
In search of teachers, true,"
"From the folks that crowd this lifeís land,"
"I have chosen you."
"Now simply give him all your love,"
"Donít think the labor vain,"
"Nor hate Me when I come to take
My lovely dog again."
"I watched as I saw him give
love, laughter, smiles and fun,"
"For all the joys this dog will bring,"
"The risk of grief youíll run."
"Will you shelter him with tenderness?"
"Will you love him while you may?"
"And for the happiness youíll know,
Forever grateful, stay?"
"But should I call him back
much sooner than youíve planned,"
"Please brave the bitter grief that comes
and try to understand."
"If by your love, youíve managed
My wishes to achieve,"
"In memory of him that youíve loved,
Be thankful, do not grieve."
"Cherish every moment
with your furry charge, my friend,"
"For he filled your home with love and joy
time and time again."
"I will lend to you, a dog," God said
"To teach you all you have to do."
"And when I call him back to heaven,
Youíll know he loved you, too."
