We brought him home, cleaned him up, took him to the vet for his shots... and he wasn't chipped. It's very unusual to find a Schnauzer running around as a stray, so we assume that he either got lost and kept on running, or someone abandoned him. I suspect that he was abandoned, because for the first year of his time with us he would whine and draw away from me if I picked up the broom in his presence. The suggestion of past abuse brought me to tears, and he got lots of extra reassurance and love.
Now here we are two years later, and it's hard to remember a time when Charlie Rose (yes, I have many nicknames for my furry boy) wasn't with us.
We never did get our frozen yogurt, but we found a wonderful companion that night.
