The schnauzer dilemma...

About a month and half ago, I went to the pet shop in order to buy the fish tank filters. (yes, I have a fish tank full of goldfish) and while I was picking the tera filter package my wife and daughter went to see the doggy's...

Long story short... I took home a 3 months old standard schnauzer plus another bunch of crap for the puppy. When I asked for the dogs papers they gave me the vaccination chart because the dog has no pedigree and is not registered. OK fine... I accepted and took the dog home.

To comply with the "sales contract" I had to take him within 7 days to the vet (their vet) to verify if the puppy was defective or something which I did.. The dog had some infection on the ears so I bought the medication and asked for the third multivalent vaccine that was supposed to get applied 8 days later...

Happens to be that the dog got sick 2 days later.... bloody diarrhea. I took him to another vet, made some test and such to find out the dog had parvo...

So, 5 days later, when the diarrhea ended and the pup slightly got his strength back, I started to take him out for short walks; where we ran into other people with other dogs...
Some gal told me that she feels Thomas was kinda small for a standard schnauzer. Inevitably, I started to have my doubts; so I  looked for the schnauzer growth table all over the internet without any luck... just found the miniature schnauzer table.
