While he stays groomed in traditional Schnauzer fashion all Spring, Summer, and Fall, Benny gets a haircut free holiday from November until May. He enjoys tagging along when I photograph and snowshoe, such that his bedragled winter look serves a purpose for him. Schnauzers typically do much better in the cold than heat, so for the most part, he enjoys the snow. This morning, with more than 30 below zero was a bit much even for Mr. B, who went out the sliding glas door, pissed, and returned in less than ten seconds. A loyal pal and roomate, no matter what season.
