Gus

The First Year

Whatcha Looking At?

Our first year with Gus has been eventful! He has the funniest personality and fits in perfectly with our little family.

We’ve definitely had our challenges but these boys are worth it! It was a slow go getting Otis to warm up to the idea of not being the only fur baby anymore but now he loves having a little brother (don’t tell him we told you that)! They’ve become so silly together and it’s hysterical how different they are. They really are the ying to each other’s yang.

 Fun Stuff

We’ve camped, we’ve hiked, we’ve snowshoed. We’ve ran at the beach, jumped through the tall grass, slept in tents, ate snow at the mountain and so much more! We keep in touch with some of our litter mates and sometimes we even get together for big play dates!

 Our Goofball Is

Gus is full of energy, curious about everything, and incredibly smart. He is always keeping us on our toes. He is currently 58 pounds of goofball and eats like every meal is his last. He is pretty petite in stature which only adds to the cuteness factor 🙂 We think he’ll be smaller than Otis (who just turned 5 by the way!!) and have no complaints about that!

We couldn’t thank you enough for another amazing weimy. They bring so much love and adventure into our lives.
We hope all is well with you, Cliff and the whole Owyheestar gang!
Much love,
Jason, Kim, Otis and Gus

It is so great to hear from you folks. Incorporating the second Weimaraner into the family is always an adventure into uncharted territory. You cannot afford to assume that they will be like the first because each is unique. Approaching this journey with patience and letting it unfold is always the right approach. It ‘s nice to have two different personalities–especially if one feels they are in charge. You never want two vying for the top position. If one is content to follow the other and to be a co-conspirator, it is a good thing.

Two Weimaraner are a catalyst for the unknown. They can work together to open a gate latch. We used to watch a couple at work. The one would take the top latch and the other the bottom latch. If the gate came open, there was nowhere to go, but it was a game. We marveled at these and other plots over the years. To live with two is to understand the meeting of the Weimaraner intellect.

Two can become companions of the best kind–inseparable. They can burn energy off each other and then snuggle up on the sofa (if allowed). Typically, we recommend waiting for at least nine months to add a second puppy, rather than getting both at once–ideally 1.5 years to 3 years. The (adding of the second Weimaraner) timeline is a lengthy discussion we will save for another blog.
