Emma and Alice
Two Sisters for Cheryl and Dave
Alice is really really smart I was working on the down-command. She saw Emma do it, and then she did it. Alice follows that command now easily, like her sister Emma. She also loves retrieving tennis balls. Alice is socializing well; she has a curious but cautious nature about her. She is never still, except for when she sleeps. Her addition to our home, has benefited Emma’s health. Emma is in better physical condition. She has slimmed down from participating in joint ventures with Alice.
Note: In general, it is rarely a good idea to bring home a second female Weimaraner. Traditional wisdom tells us that a neutered male, and a spayed female has the best chance of avoiding fur-flying situations. It is a well-documented fact that two female Weimaraners will (more often than not) vie for top position. The art of vying to be the alpha female Weimaraner, can take on an ugly-look, even when you have a nice couple of Weimaraner girls.
A breeder has to be the gatekeeper. It is important to determine if a placement has an excellent chance of working. There are always going to be ups-and-downs with the raising the Weimaraner. There are many factors to consider when puppy placements are made. Those who work with the Weimaraner know there is any number of ways things can go sideways in a heartbeat. The folks that work with Weim rescue need us to do a good job. They should not need to run after us cleaning up bad decisions we make. :O)
