About Colleen

Hello Fur Friendly Families!

Since 1993, I live in a well maintained two storey house with a walkout basement in Arbour Lake NW. The house has central air conditioning, and the yard is fully fenced, with a park close by for walks. 

I am 60 and the house is smoke free, children free, and cat free. 

I have been a "Mini Schnauzer Mama" since 1992, and absolutely love the breed, and their varying personalities. Several years ago, I had "schnauzer twins", a boy, and a girl. Sadly, they were both diabetic, and required twice daily insulin injections. I have medical training, and both my "babies", and I were able to easily contend with their injections. They both eventually became blind, and I became their "seeing eye master". We continued to have a happy life until, sadly, it was time for their trip over the Rainbow Bridge.

Suzie was my next furbaby; she passed away in 2018 a couple weeks before her 13th birthday. She was a beautiful, energetic girl, and everyday with her was an adventure!

In 2019, we adopted Mazie. She is definitely the princess "of the castle". She loves lounging on the couches, and loves to sleep on the bed, covered with her own tiny blanket. Fresh cold water is always available for her.

I would welcome the opportunity to host guest mini schnauzers, and other fur babies that are 15 pounds or less. Please note all visitors must be neutered/spade, and vaccinations must be up to date. Please be assured that your furbabies will be well looked after. I do not take more than one booking for any given period. I am very conscientious about leaving my girl home alone; therefore, I am usually at home with the exception of occasional errands, and appointments.
