Mom’s Deployment was hard on Colby too!
It is good to be home!
Colby loves his Goughnut…
I wanted to share some cute photos I took of Colby yesterday. This is him with his favorite toy, the Goughnut. I ordered it for him in December when he was beginning to tear more things up in the house. He carries it all over the place and loves chewing on it. Hasn’t put a dent in it yet. I have to say that I recommend it for other weims that like to get bored and chew when someone isn’t looking.
He’s been doing pretty good since I got home from my deployment. My goodness you should have seen him when I walked through the door! He was outside in the back yard and when I stopped at the door he poked his head up and just stared. As soon as I opened up the door it was all over. He was so excited! He followed me around everywhere (more so than “normal”) for that first week I was home. He has since settled down a bit.
Breeder’s Note: First, we thank Jenn for her service to our country. Being deployed is not easy. Recently, we read how when Phill had been gone for the Annual Training in Idaho; Kali was OK upon his return. Then when Phill needed to be gone for another weekend of training, he left friends at his house to watch her. The gate was accidentally left open, and she went to find him; or so it seems. We cannot imagine what they (our beloved Weims) must be thinking. Colby is a bit extra clingy, and worried that Jenn might leave again. It is hard on everyone, but the Weimaraner must suffer more. They cannot reason as to why you come and go. Ten minutes can seem like an hour or longer. A day might seem like eternity. They don’t soon forget your absence.
We have placed a Weimaraner with several military families. Some are in active service but have a stable living situation. Some, are veterans who suffer from PTSD, and the ravages of war. We believe these wonderful creatures can help the healing process. We owe these folks a debt of gratitude at a minimum.
For now, we will continue to remember Kali and Phill until she returns home. We are glad Jenn is home safe, and that Colby is adjusting (and coping) with wondering where his Mama went. We send prayers and thoughts to both these wonderful households.
