Piper

~My Running Partner

Now that Piper is fully grown we can run long distances. The vet told me not to run her more than 3 miles at a time while she was still growing (for the fist two years) because it could damage her growth plates. She is three years old now (time flies!) and she has become the best running partner. She trains with me for all of my races and when dogs are allowed, she races right along with me. People often ask me how far she can run and my answer is always, “farther than I can”. She runs all of the miles that I do and I know she would keep going if I did.


I asked for a runner and you picked the perfect puppy for me. Piper was a lot to handle being such an energetic pup, but we survived it with a lot of exercise and training. I used to joke that she never got tired; just a 10 minute power nap and she was back at it. I suppose that means she has always had endurance and it shows on the trails. We have a lot of fun running and there isn’t anyone I would rather be out there with. Piper is my favorite “person” πŸ™‚


Thank you for bringing us together,
Lina

A much Younger Piper

Thank you, Lina–for being a smart Weim parent. I always worry that someone will not heed the advice of letting the growth plates close. Honestly, you want to get as many miles as possible–and longevity for those hips and joints. No one can say for sure how long they will hold out (human or Weimar running partner). They have hip, knee, and elbow replacements for dogs, too. We hope it never comes to that. Yes, it appears you have an endurance runner for sure. Thanks for the update. We truly appreciate it.
