Crazy hunting dogs!

Roxie's Porcupine-2

Can you spot the dark spot beyond the tire and the snow–it is a porcupine.

You know these critters we love and adore. Yes, I am speaking of the Weimaraner. We adopted a couple of adults from Cliff and Shela–one was Roxy. Let it suffice to say they each have their things–one chews plastic. There is the toting of gloves, shoes, etc. You know quite possibly for what I speak. A person has to be on alert always, and it seems never to end. Roxy had been restless for some time at night. Mothers hear the rustling and the moving because our ear is attuned to it. I had been wondering what might be the problem. Anyhow, I spotted this critter thanks to Roxy.



I am merely doing my job

Mike had to work yesterday, which is unusual for a Sunday.  There sat the porcupine gnawing on a log in our back “yard” about 30 feet or so from the house. This taunting action (that troubled Roxy to no end) went on for a couple of hours.  Roxy was very excited and drove me crazy.


I finally went out the front door and walked the two Weim kids (Roxy and Sage) because Mike was taking forever to get home.  He came home and got rid of it for me.  Now there are quills everywhere.  Roxy was on high alert up until she finally crashed for the night.

 Last night was the first night in a long time when Roxy wasn’t stirring…  Maybe this is what has been bothering her, though it could have been anything like deer, raccoons, coyotes, etc.  Putting up the 7-foot fence up was worth every penny.

I think we need to shut off the sensor light Mike put in at night, though if there is a full moon, it doesn’t matter.


Breeder Comment


The Weimaraner has an incredible scenting ability. They also seem to be able to spot critters. Who can guess if the night light turning on is her alert? Maybe not, but quite possibly. In our experience, it doesn’t take much to trigger the sensor lights, and they flip on. Many a night I have gotten up to see what triggered our light to find nothing and to conclude it was probably a night prowling kitty.
