Willow Says


Magnuson's Willow-2107322_oWhat the Weim finds is theirs. Right? Sometimes this is true. If they snatch something from another dog or a child, it might not be a good thing to encourage the behavior.

Willow found this ball on her walk. Of course, her Mama has bought her a lot of balls and other toys, but this find is amazing. Don’t you love her expression?

Jagger’s Duck

Pilfered Duck_1110525824_nJagger was hoping for a similar outcome when he pilfered another dog’s duck. Jagger helped himself to the duck, but Warren insisted they return it. It was not such a popular decision.

We believe that the Weimaraner loves finding things. Sticks, rocks, and toys are all good finds. They might also net a dead fish, frog, or mouse. This list is not always welcome in the house. Remember toads are toxic, so if your Weimaraner has one in their mouth it could be a concern. Any toad might cause foaming at the mouth which is scary in and of itself; however, most of the time a rinse with the hose eliminates the worst of the toxins. Keep in mind some toads are deadly–these are not the typical Pacific Northwest toad–click here to learn more.

Another popular find is the shed. Antlers are left for the picking each year, and these magnificent creatures grow a new set. Isn’t that amazing? You can train your Weimaraner to help you shed hunt too! Keith and Kash found a few excellent ones.
