We have a new Mini Schnauzer puppy.  His name is Sparky.  He arrived the day after the 4th of July.  We love him!  Sparky is a great name for our new July puppy.  He is 8 weeks old and pure white.  I researched the breed before purchasing him.  Mini Schnauzers look great on paper:

The boys love Sparky and really run him hard in the afternoon.  He sleeps great.  My job has become much easier as a result! I love how much the boys play with him.  He is a great addition to our small family.  I will be posting my holistic pet care posts soon.  I have him started on Organic Puppy Food and I have an herbal wormer that he will receive weekly/ monthly.  For teething I have a few homeopathic remedies that work wonderfully for dogs/ cats (Chamomile and Arnica).  The same remedies worked great for my boys.  Stay tuned. 🙂
