Success Stories abound
We love it! Yesterday, we had an uncharacteristic blog. It was in the works for a long time. We talked about how you could ruin the Weimaraner puppy. We are not always sure how folks will receive the speaking of this kind of truths. For the most part, what we received was an endorsement. Most of us can look at ourselves, and laugh at how we have been duped in one way or other by the resident Weimaraner. Does that (or whatever when awry) dissuade us from loving our plight? No, these bonding experiences are the part of the addictive glue for the serious Weimlover.
Each of us is unique. We process information differently; we handle the Weimaraner in our way. Sometimes sugar-coating these truths don’t help us really understand where we can go awry. For this, and other reasons, Our blog has a multifaceted purpose. We want to educate, inform, and update our followers. Mostly, our blog posts contain suggestions on how to succeed; however, understanding how easily we can get in trouble (with the Weimaraner) is important too! No one wants to find their self on the wrong path. Almost without exception, the folks that do get caught in the unthinkable situation, were trying to do what they believed right. More often than not, it began by treating the puppy as if it were a human baby. Oh how difficult it is not to let that happen.
Yesterday, we spoke about a difficult topic. Today, we want to talk about something a lot more fun. For every Weimaraner surrendered, there are far more successes. Success doesn’t always come easy; however, the best things in life reach deep into our inner-being causing us to become a better person. Any breed could do this to us. Nevertheless, we (Weimlovers) understand all too well that this breed tugs a bit firmer. Each challenge ending with a positive outcome is thrilling. Somehow, the Weimaraner manages to weave their way deep in our lives on every level. Things we said we could not live with, happen; we go on together. We learn to laugh more–sometimes this means tear-filled-tummy jolting laughter. We enjoy nose-kisses, and nose-art. While others might not appreciate our nose-painted window, we realize what is behind the design. Many of us share our bed; we share our sofa; and all too often we share our snack. (Hopefully, the shared snack is of the best kind–an apple slice, a carrot, or safe (as well as healthy).
Success might look like Jan and Willow (pictured above left); more often than not, it looks a bit different. Earning Best in Show is a rare occurrence. (Thank you Jan and Willow!) Not every Weim competes or participates in events. Jeanne and Zeus (pictured right) have been active in agility, and they also earned their AKC Canine Good Citizen’s Award. Some OwyheeStar Weims are hunting companions; others are running companions. More than any one thing, the Weimaraner is all about the relationship. The word companion encompasses the heart and soul of being owned by the Weimaraner. Sometimes they take us down the wrong path; on occasion, we forget we are in command (Lol) If the outcome is good, then all is good.
