Winston is doing really well, he’s working on his Irish citizenship! My husband and I moved to Ireland about 1.5 years ago and, of course, Mr. Winston made the trip too. He loves it here – lots of big parks to play in and he comes to work with me on Fridays and I WFH 3 days a week. We’re in Ireland for the next few years so we’re glad that he’s in such ideal conditions – getting to be with his owner(s) 5-6 days a week!
The actual move was stressful and expensive – $3000
to fly him here in an XXL crate. Weims might not weigh that much, but those darn legs really shoot up the crate requirement!
Winston is 8 now and slowing down a little bit – I think he’s at “normal” dog levels now. We’re contemplating another puppy next year which I’m sure he’ll hate. 8 years of being the sole center of attention is his preferred way of life.
Anyhow, just wanted to shoot you a quick email to let you know Winston is happy, healthy and a little farther away than the PNW these days! I’ve enclosed a few photos of him being a Weim – first to volunteer to clear up any spilled food.
Thank you, Rebecca, for remembering us. Cliff and I remember well when you came to get him. You and your sister in our front yard. I knew you would do well with him. There have been life changes–quite a few. Nonetheless, you have been faithful to keep the promise. We appreciate your commitment and dedication to Winston.
Well, he is not the first OwyheeStar to move from the Pacific NW overseas. Jorga
just moved back from Belgium, and Dakota
returned home to the Seattle area after being in Paris for several years. Another Weim (Tiga
) returned home from Italy, but I believe he and his new sister are both in Europe again—the father is a Colonel in the military overseeing operations. The new pups it named Lotte. So, I am sure the military pays for all this to happen. A long time ago we had a client who lived in the Seattle area marry a man who was from NZ and they relocated on the South Island. Recently, Atticus
and his Mama did the same – she is the Veterinary health director on the South Island. There is the infamous first Blue (Gabriel
) we allowed to go to Russia–possibly more headed that direction in the future. We are still trying to work out the details for this transfer. So, I am sure I have missed some of the International Weims, but these stand out to me. Now we have Winston in Ireland. Oh and lest we forget the two Blues to the UK, click here
