Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Yesterday was a very sad day for us all. My brother Kaska crossed over the Rainbow Bridge and we are missing him very much. I will get back to blogging again soon about my adventures but today Leigh is putting up a kind of memory tree of pictures of Kaska from when he first came to live with the family eleven years ago.

Here is Kaska the day he arrived as a little ball of fluff being inspected by Maisie who was head of the canine household back then.

Kaska in his show cut. He won many prizes at dog shows and became the very first miniature schnauzer dog to gain 1st place in the Good Citizen Dog class at Crufts in 2004 the year it was first introduced.
