My computer ate my homework

It makes perfect sense ….

I knew I should have eaten every morsel--I got full!

Sometimes it is not the school work that is devoured. Dog beds seem to be shredded about as often as toys.

I can attest to the fact that what hurts the most is they love to target our cherished things–our favorite shoes, the quilt we love, and just about anything that has our scent can become the choice (of the day). When the deed is done, they know guilt. Opportunity knocks, and the Weimaraner opens the door. What can we say? Do not give them opportunity–especially with something you treasure.

Deniability works, right?

They will go to great lengths to get something they want, or feel they need. The guilt-ridden look can also take the shape of denial–you cannot pin this on me. These incidents often occur after the Weimaraner has their feelings hurt; they are not exclusive to a reactive behavior. They seem to be drawn to getting into a bit of trouble. When they don’t find it in front of them, they can be very creative.

Counter-surfing is an art

The Weim-parent must be vigilant. They are not a train-in-three-months dog; and then glide along in uneventful bliss. Nevertheless, we love them. Weim-addicts cannot account for their addiction, but they often state nothing else will do.
