~ Not A Baby Anymore
I’ll be the first to admit I might be a “little” over the top when it comes to Waylon ( and perhaps baby and coddle him just a “little”) ….. but today when we took him in to get his toenails cut ( his biggest hate in life ) as he jumped off the table, wrapped his back legs around my waist, and his front left around my neck, holding on to me and screeching for dear life to be saved …. I have no choice but to finally admit, my sweet 75lb baby boy isn’t a baby anymore 😢💔
No, he is not a tiny little baby boy. He has grown adult-sized. You have worked hard to train and incorporate him into your family life and to prepare him for adventures afield. That being said, the Weimaraner (even the adult) has a lot of puppy in them. Do they really ever outgrow the puppy-stage? Some do more than others. Most remain juvenile for three years instead of the three months that some hope. The teenage flakiness can pop out at the most unexpected time. Who can guess what will happen next?
Weimlovers take delight in the antics and capture many of these to share. The Weimaraner is nothing if not entertaining; however, for the most part, they are very engaging–some are extremely clingy. The traits we love can become extreme behavioral issues and are some of the reason the breed sees a shelter or rescue too often. Typically, this happens when a person doesn’t understand how the Weimaraner brain is wired. Trouble often finds you and your Weimaraner. Some folks even encourage these antics because they become addicted to the fun. As long as everyone remains safe and healthy, it is all good clean fun.
