Can. Ch. Britmor Sunshine Serenade,  CD

SARA was a 14" Black and Silver who early on declared her dominance to the household by alpha-rolling her mother at three months of age. A few months later she took on Greta, our alpha bitch and then pack leader, and a silent, but scary, battle was waged by the two for several weeks before the crown was eventually passed quite bloodlessly to Sara. When Sara then tried to take on her sire Sunny, she was promptly put in her place with one loud bark, and then a quick nip, and she immediately settled into her life-long spot as second-dog-in-command.

Sara was daughter Kate's first real obedience dog to train from scratch, and that dog's dominance nearly lost me a great dog person as Katie was so totally frustrated with Sara that I think she came close to giving up with her.... absolutely NOT a good choice for a first dog to train! At Sara's very first trial, during the recall she saw one of the ring stewards bending down at the gate to do something with the mat, and Sara totally thought it was Katie's father and took off to see him (ya, he totally looked like Skip with the dark hair and glasses, and Skip had come to the trial). That one moment by that unthinking ring steward taught Sara that the recall meant that it was time to say, "bye, Katie.... see ya!", and it took several shows and fun matches with me surreptitiously standing at the ring gate giving that dog the evil eye, and a lot of hard work on Katie's part before Sara finally earned her Companion Dog title. (Shortly thereafter I gave Katie super-easy Blue to work with, a dog that I had already partially trained, and he proved to be just what Katie's ego needed!)

While not the best schnauzer in the world, Sara was a wonderful dog, and she was very protective of those she cared for if she felt they were threatened. She loved to sit on the bed and look out the front window and quietly watch the traffic go by, and she would never bark unless someone opened the gate and entered the yard. Sara was an old dog when we finally moved out to the country, and the poor dog would try to stay awake for hours so that she could look out the patio doors that overlooked our woods, until she finally would collapse in a heap on the spot from exhaustion.
