We have moved!!

Schipperke Sweeties has moved! See our new blog:

We are now THE MODERN DAY SCHIPPERKE. I had to change it as this blog got screwed up :-/ I like the new name better too :]
A SWEET STORY: It will touch your heart, I promise!

A store owner was tacking a sign above his door that read “Puppies For Sale.” Signs like that have a way of attracting small children, and sure enough, a little boy appeared under the store owner’s sign. “How much are you going to sell the puppies for?” he asked. The store owner replied, “Anywhere from $30 to $50.” The little boy reached in his pocket and pulled out some change. “I have $2.37,” he said. “Can I please look at them?” The store owner smiled and whistled and out of the kennel came Lady, who ran down the aisle of his store followed by five teeny, tiny balls of fur. One puppy was lagging considerably behind. Immediately the little boy singled out the lagging, limping puppy and said, “What’s wrong with that little dog?” The store owner explained that the veterinarian had examined the little puppy and had discovered it didn’t have a hip socket. It would always limp. It would always be lame. The little boy became excited. “That is the puppy that I want to buy.” The store owner said, “No, you don’t want to buy that little dog. If you really want him, I’ll just give him to you.” The little boy got quite upset. He looked straight into the store owner’s eyes, pointing his finger, and said, “I don’t want you to give him to me. That little dog is worth every bit as much as all the other dogs and I’ll pay full price. In fact, I’ll give you $2.37 now, and 50 cents a month until I have him paid for.” The store owner countered, “You really don’t want to buy this little dog. He is never going to be able to run and jump and play with you like the other puppies.” To his surprise, the little boy reached down and rolled up his pant leg to reveal a badly twisted, crippled left leg supported by a big metal brace. He looked up at the store owner and softly replied, “Well, I don’t run so well myself, and the little puppy will need someone who understands!”

Onto Schipperke Stuff: Look at this great Schipperke Treat Jar! It is too cute to pass up...Even though it is $41. But, if you have a Schipperke, I do not see any better place to store their dog treats. I think I'll get one.

Cream Schipperke??

Pretty Painting:
A CREAM Schipperke??

Skipper here :) Mommy found this picture today. It's a CREAM Schipperke. Yeah, cream. She's never actually SEEN one before, only heard of them. Mommy thinks black is cuter though. Skippers like me should be black! Still though, with the Schipp ears and the fluffy body, it doesn't matter what color they are, they're still pretty cute.

Our First Schipperke Photo Contest Entry Is............Brandi!
This is what Brandi's mommy, Bernadette, has to say about her:
This is Brandi. She is a 5 month old Pomeranian-Schipperke, though she has shown more characteristics of a Schipperke than Pomeranian. She loves playing outside in the snow, chasing our cat around the house, and playing with her squeaky stuffed animals.
We here at Schipperke Sweeties think we are looking at a winner, Brandi! But-We can't say just yet..........If you have a Schipperke or Schipperke mix (with the dominant look being Schipperke)..........Send in your baby's picture and you could win!
