Thoughts & Comments
From Larry owned and adored by Reno
(a beloved Weimaraner).
Everyday I look at Reno and I want to thank for the gift you brought me.
Right now he is wanting me to get his ball from him.
I thought you said that we would have to give them attention?
He will bring one toy to me and I will play with him for a while.
When I stop paying attention he will get a new toy.
This goes on until all of his toys are assembled around my chair.
I think he thinks that he is suppose to entertain me with his toys and bring a new one when I loose interest.
Now, he is barking at me for attention, next comes the attack on my shoes.
Every toy has a name. His favorite words are “Are you hungry?”
He is very smart for his age, wow what will he be like in a year or two?
Bye for now and Reno sends you his best dog kisses and love.
Later after some discourse Larry wrote this enlightening statement about what it takes to raise one of these wonderful companions.
It takes just about all of your time and patience to raise one of these pups. I’m still trying catch up on my sleep. You have to have a backyard and a crate or you not make it. You have to supervise the pup 24/7. If you let up for a minute problems will happen. I’m just echoing everything you say over and over each and everyday. Most dogs will eat, play some and sleep the rest of the day and night with no problems. A weim will search every inch of his environment until he knows everything about it and then he will search it again starting from the other end. They work very hard at it. You can only try to keep up.
Breeder’s Note: Sometimes our wonderful Weim-loving clients say it best. Not that a single one would give up their fur family member. They are just almost always more work than most other breeds. People often ask why? Who can say? There are many factors and myriad of reasons for the challenges you face. As Larry well stated the facts…..using a crate makes it doable.
