Four Seasons For Charlie Blue

Charlie Blue has a preference

I was born and raised in Boise, Idaho, but my husband and I lived in Eugene, Oregon for over ten years. We missed having four seasons. There are two seasons in Eugene: rain and no rain. We are back in Boise and enjoying four seasons again. We have discovered that Charlie Blue has weather preferences as well. She loves warm summer days (who doesn’t? :)), DOES NOT like rain, is very intrigued by snow, and is absolutely crazy about playing on clear, brisk days in the fall. So, I guess it’s a good thing that we didn’t get her when we lived in Eugene lol. I’ve included a collage of photos of Charlie playing in a field near our house during one of her favorite seasons: fall. I will send winter pictures when we have our next snow 🙂

Breeder’s Note: OwyheeStar sees a lot of inquiries from the Northwest. That being said, it means rain–a lot of rain for a lot of these locations. One couple who acquired their first Weim live in Vancouver, BC. Our best advice was from day-one to put on the rain gear, and get out there. Make it fun. Make it the norm, and the Weim will embrace the rain. In other areas where rain is less frequent, a Weimaraner can put on the skids when they discover the outside world is getting a shower. Some will skulk around and potty secretly in the house to avoid the rain.

  1. Willow (Lacee X Dusty) was raised in the rain as I live in the Pacific NW, it is just another normal day for her and we go out and play, no matter the weather. She isn’t bothered by it at all, and it is so nice to be able to just towel her off and bring her into the house and she is clean again, I love having smooth coated dogs!

  2. I’m not really a fan of rain, but we work on it and I’m doing much better now. We have 18 days with rain per month, says google :o)

  3. 18 days, well…………that is like a flood zone compared to here. The four-season (rain-scarcity) causes more problems than not. People who embrace the rain early-on seem to have very good luck. Ahhhhhhh

  4. I believe this is the key. They pick up on are unspoken cues, and they adapt to the life they live. It is harder where rain is a rare occurrence. :O)
