If you are Schnoobie, you can make your own fun anywhere. He's kind of a Barkie Barkerton but his general attitude and get up and go more than compensate for minor personality flaws like unrelenting stubbornness. His white face betrays his age. Soon he'll be nine and he has survived a surgery for a herniated disc and two bouts of paralysis for the same reason. He is loyal and happy. Even when he he was
paralyzed, any unfamiliar sound saw him dragging himself across the floor to protect his family. He loves to play and when necessity demanded, he created his own "ball" by chewing the ends from a branched stick. Then he barked and barked until you threw it for him. His walk is wobbly but it doesn't hold him back; he just takes his time and because he's a hound, gives him the time to sniff. Schnoobie just doesn't give up and looks at every day as an opportunity to have fun. He is my fur grandchild and an example of how to live your life!
