~ Part Two
Ringo loves the snow we got in early December, unusual for us here in mid-Michigan (usually we don’t get big storms until January). he follows my walking path around the yard, tearing around at full speed, just for the fun of it. He eats ice off our patio and gets grumpy when he can’t find the snowballs we throw him. He does pull the classic “never mind” in the evening – scratching to go out then refusing when the cold air hits him. All our snow melted over Christmas and now he’s back to boring activities like picking up sticks and jumping into the garden.
At the end of the day, no matter what trouble he finds, Ringo curls up on the couch with me with a big sigh to tell me he’s done for the night. He is very sweet and affectionate. I sometimes half expect him to start purring when he flops down on my lap! Having a weim has seriously changed our lives, but the joy of full-butt wags at the door when we get home and nighttime snuggles when we both want the same pillow make the counter-surfing, door jumping, and general teen defiance worth enduring. Ringo is a big sweetie who loves his pack and we love having him in it.
One final note: Ringo learned a new trick this week – opening doors in the house! I came home and found the bedroom open and a warm spot on my pillow! Since discovering this superpower, he’s let himself into the bedroom, the bathroom, and my closet, which opens outward! We’re not sure how he managed that one. Fortunately, the outside doors all have knobs instead of handles, but now it’s just a matter of time until he realizes all the doors in the house are openable. I’m thinking a trip to the hardware store is in our future. Maybe he was just reminding us he’s a Weim.
Thank you for giving us such a sweet, adorable, ridiculous pup,
Abbey, Nick, and Ringo
