I have to say that we have the best dog ever, though I might be a little biased. He's a six-year-old miniature schnauzer I got from a breeder in PA when he was just 8 weeks old. He's been with me through good times and bad, heart ache and triumph, and single/dating/engaged/married. He doesn't do any useful tricks and doesn't always come when we call him, but he always seems to know when I need extra cuddle time.
And the best thing - Scott loves him just as much as I do! See for yourself:
