You Can't Be Allergic To Me
On 51st Street, I met Mauricio and Onyx who is a giant schnauzer. I learned that Onyx is 3 years and 5 months old. He got her when she was 10 weeks old in Virgina and she now weighs 87 pounds.
Mauricio added, "She is very calm at the house. She sometimes acts like a puppy. She likes to play with other dogs. Anything on wheels, she jumps on - like luggages. She gets very excited when I get home and jumps on my shoulder."
When Mauricio was with a dog before Onyx, he became allergic to dogs. One year later, that dog passed away. He decided that his next and 10th dog has to be hypoallergenic. Schnauzers are hypoallergenic breeds and tend to have more like human hair which does not have a second under coat. This reduces shedding as well as dander.
Then I asked Mauricio to go lower so I could take a picture of them together. As soon as his face was close, Onyx kissed her guardian on the cheek. Mauricio returned the kiss and he didn't sneeze!
