Feeling Good About Our Jorga
Loved your post today! You know, the one featuring Stackhouse
, who munched the red bed stand–Weim Crim
e. After all your years with Weims, I was glad to see you deal with this stuff too. It made me feel like I’ve done okay.
My friends suggest that I get rid of Jorja’s bones, but I won’t. I feel the bones stop her from chewing on “other stuff,” even though Ken thinks she only chews when we are both home.
But she greets us/anyone by getting a bone right after the first welcome. We call it the bone dance (she circles with it in her mouth). It also helps her not to jump up on people.
Thank you for all you and Cliff do!! Prayers coming your way for health and stamina for the move!!
Each person has to find a way to make things work–no two Weims are identical. Every person is unique, and each of us has strengths as well as weaknesses. Our household schedule and logistics differ. These variances along with the concrete thinking, separation anxiety prone, and territorial Weimaraner can present with many challenges. Nonetheless, for many of us, nothing else will do.
People always have suggestions for other folks on how to raise their children and their pets. Much of this advice is given without request. Very often, the smart approach is to consider the point made, and to ask yourself how you feel about the journey thus far. The relationship you have with your Weimaraner matters more than some random person’s advice about what you should or should not do. Is the behavior dangerous? Is you Weimaraner jumping up on others and being annoying to them? What one person thinks is a requirement is another person’s not so necessary category. Pick your battles and be a good leader. Yes, we all get caught short on occasion. Exactly how Stackhouse
found himself featured in less than the best spotlight.
