Colby Finds Comfort 

Kletzi's Colby Baby SnugglesI don’t really send much on Colby these days. But I wanted to take a moment to share a couple photos I snapped of our youngest with him the other day.
Kletzi's Colby Baby KissesIt’s been a little rough for Colby with the passing of our older dog, Sable.  It hit him worse than anyone, since the rest of us were prepared for this to happen.  We’ve been giving him lots of loving and he is milking it pretty well.  Case in point: letting him on the bed with the baby.
He doesn’t know of to be cognicent when she is laying around and stepping on her is a possibility I’d rather avoid.  When he came up to attempt a nap, I charged him a few photos. He grumped off shortly after he realized no nap would be happening here.
The weim grieves loss just like we do. But a little love can help to mend a broken heart.

I think Weimaraners, just as humans, process loss in different ways. Some seem to go on with life and adjust quickly. Others suffer intensely.

It never ceases to amaze me how most Weims adapt to life changes. I truly believe much of this is due to their inclusion in the family. When some add a baby, they forget that the Weimaraner was the center of the universe before the baby arrived. Others include the fur-family members without expecting them to be relegated to the background.

Many times a pup who comes into a family with children will be fueled by the energy of the toddler and younguns running around. Unwanted puppy nipping and also jumping up are typically the issue. It can be challenging. In the same family, if there is a baby, it may well never be a problem. The Weimaraner often are more careful and found to cuddle in with the baby. I used to have a photo of a baby sleeping on the Weimaraner. The family said it calmed the baby. Our relationships are complicated and amazingly unique.

  1. We know an OwyheeStar Weim named Colby who we greet on our walks and runs in Oregon City with Maizie. Could this be him? There is a new baby addition in the family too.
