I don't like it. Where is the ice cream to compensate?

I don’t like it. Where is the ice cream to compensate?

Annie was spayed last week and she is doing very well. It is hard to keep her from running and jumping though. Her stitches come out this Friday and hopefully she will be able to jump and play after that.  It is pretty hard to keep an active Weim down-ha ha

Tube Collar is better than wearing the cone

The picture the top is right after we brought her home last Tuesday after surgery.  The other photo was taken the next day. She is not too happy with her tube collar but she likes it a lot better than the cone.  She is getting extra attention and being spoiled.

We would be heart-broken to lose our Annie

We have been follow Kali’s story, and are deeply saddened to hear of her loss.  I hope he finds his dog, we would be heart broken if Annie took off. Annie is so use to sleeping on our bed and because of her surgery she is not suppose to jump or run only leash walks so we have been sleeping in the front room with her.  She is spoiled but we love her so much.

Hope all is well with you ~ Patricia (7/9/2013)

Breeder’s Comment: Annie is well cared for, love-much, and spoiled rotten. Does that sound familiar? She is an integral part of the family. Bob and Patty adore her, and probably cater to her way too much. She is their first Weimaraner. Yes, Shela is always harping on getting crate training accomplished. This is one of those times when it makes life easier for all concerned. The Weimaraner that loves their safe-place, is indeed safer for a lot of reasons. Nevertheless, some humans cannot embrace the crate. Another collar choice would be one called the BiteNot (click here to read more about this collar). This can come in handy many times; however, it won’t work for front feet problems. Any time they can reach the spot without turning their neck the BiteNot will not work. This would be especially true with a front foot problem. They can still reach their front feet, eat, drink, and do a lot of stuff. They cannot bathe themselves, chew on stitches elsewhere, or reach their abdomen. They are nice because the Weimaraner can still get into the crate. Tubes and cones are very upsetting when they are kenneled.

Here are a couple of happier moments in Annie’s life. :O) Snowmobiling and birthday cake beats stitches any day, but spaying is important. Click here to read more….and click here too! Annie's 1st Birthday June 17, 2012 008 (2)

  1. I hope Annie feels better soon. Thanks for the link to the bitenot collar – it sounds much better than the cone. Fortunately I found a store in UK who sells it. I hope for Kali and Phil and for a happy end for both.

  2. I imagine Annie is hopping around already. Who can keep a Weim down??? It is nearly impossible, but you don’t want the stitches pulled. The bitenot is a dandy deal, and will help in most cases. The front feet it won’t work for but one never knows when something will crop up. :O) The cone is a nightmare, and should only have to be endured when another option won’t work. :O)

  3. I agree – the cone is a bad thingy what drives dogs crazy. We tried the “satellite-dish” but it was also not good :o)

  4. I think the human that puts that on their dog, should wear one for a day. Lol
