And It Begins
Note: Before CW there was Melvin
The plan was in the works to add a second Weimaraner when Melvin crossed over the rainbow bridge. He could never be replaced, but he had the best possible life–was loved and cherished. Now, Roger and Camille begin a new journey with C. W. They have shared a few comments about their life thus far. It is a bit late in coming. CW left here January 3rd–Roger flew in and carried him home as his airline carryon. Thanks, again for your loyalty Roger. Now, for the story…
Roger Reports — It was a long trip and day. The dog is more than perfect. He is adjusting so well. He is velcro. I got him to go down at 2:00 A..M. I covered the crate with a black sheet for darkness.
He cried for 15 minutes, then he slept. He woke up at 6:00 and cried for 5 minutes. And, then he slept.
It was important that he just cried without being rescued. I’m trying to remember from 11 years ago. We want to be around him 24/7. So, the compromise is hard at first. So, he is bonding really well. I even have him going out the dog door. Trust is the first elementary factor in the process—I think. Thank you again for such a wonderful companion.
I hung the bells and prepared the crate area before I flew up to Boise. We are ringing the bell with him, and out the dog door, he goes into the fenced area. We are starting out right. 10-minute training in the hallway comes tonight. We are determined to get off to a good start.
From Camille — We are in puppy heaven!! Thank you for CW. He is so cute and Roger has him on the way to house trained already. These dogs are so smart. Above is a photo we took of CW and Eliel. It looks like the puppy has trained the baby to hold toys in his mouth!!!
