Featured Weimaraner — Atticus
Our trip home went so well!
I’ve named him Atticus. Squiggle isn’t super interested in him so far. We stopped a couple of times for a bathroom break. He stays really close and sits on my feet if I stand still. He ate some food, drank some water and spent most of the time asleep on my lap or next to me.
Atticus and my cats
He has met the cats and isn’t afraid of them. They are the same size as he is right now, and they are trying to figure out what this new creature is. Atticus doesn’t have the ‘normal’ dog reaction to their hissing at him, he thinks its a game.
He stayed in the crate from 10pm-3am. He had an accident, but I think it was because I wasn’t fast enough to get to him. He does cry like he is being tortured though. And he’s very loud. Doing well today eating and playing. I brought him to work with me today to work on the crate training and being alone, but the other couple of students working the weekend shift are spoiling him rotten. Tomorrow he will have to stay home and I can go let him out at lunch. So we shall see how it goes.
He does like to retrieve.
He did it with a stick and some toys. He’s very sweet, just wants to snuggle all of the time. He is quite whiny, but I know that will change soon, when is he used to things and more comfortable. He cares more about where I am, than where the other animals are, trying to follow me everywhere. The leash is on him, but I never have to use it as he never goes farther than a couple of steps away. He likes to come and sit in between my feet and put his head against my leg.
Thanks for the gorgeous pup!! I’ll send a new update soon. ~Marika
