Luke and Clyde are doing well

IMG_0583 - CopyThe boys are doing well, Clyde is doing remarkably well at a spry 11 years next month. I recently learned of a 16 year old Male Weim that is holding his own.photo (38) - Copy

photo (45) - CopyThe boys grouch at one another when it comes chow time and gulp their food so we introduced new bowls which distribute their kibble around three protrusion (pegs if you will) that come up from the bottom of the food bowl. This makes for a 12 minute meal versus the previous 4 minute inhaling of their food.IMG_1069photo Aug 2013 Luke and Clyde - Copy

Breeder’s Note: There are various types of dishes designed to stop your dog from gulping their food. We feel it is important to teach them to eat slower. Some Weims are nibblers, but others gulp their food. There is evidence that gulping food and water, can lead to bloat. Regardless, eating slow is better for the digestive system.

We know the Weimaraner that lives past the norm does so for many reasons. There are many dangers, and potential risk lurking about. Health issues can arise (as they do for humans). Good nutrition, age-appropriate exercise, and a healthy diet go a long way toward promoting health. No one can guarantee longevity, but beating the odds is more likely with the best of care. Thank you Cal for providing the best for these two wonderful Weimaraners.
