I had a Jack Russell/Miniature Schnauzer mix. He was the most amazing,funny, loving dog i have ever had.
I used to use the quote, "If you could run any faster you'd fly." But two years ago this October 4th, he passed away by being hit by a car! he was 15 pounds, pure muscle. He was my best friend, as well as my therapy (as I did not have the best past).
But, he got hit at 30mph while running across the road, he had always stayed in the yard (except running after bunnies of course!) but the driver didn't see him. He was still alive when i got to him, as if he wanted to say goodbye to me. Just thinking about my beloved friend, is making me cry.
I had adopted him from a rescue center, he had been found in a box with his litter, mostly black and whites, he was the only brown and white and the only who resembled the schnauzer, right away i had an instant connection to him. He barely ever barked, though he was the most stubborn thing ever! His name was Rascal. Ironic :)
He was very protective over me, and loved to cuddle. He would whine if i had him in his kennel at night. Even after two years, I still love him to death even though he is gone. I now use the quote... "Baby boy, it's time to spread my wings and fly"
I'm hoping to get another of this mix but cannot find any!
