4th of July

~With Lu–ears flapping

I’m not always on the waterI love every season


In the video below our grand-daughter is tubing on July 4 and Lu is playing “spotter” – wondering why in the world she’s not in there too!

Lu loves to ride and alternates between going to the front of the boat and sitting on the cushioned bench (gets major scents up there) and sitting or standing right by dad, the pilot. 

Lu with her Ears –spotting that Granddaughter


First couple of times she was uncertain about the noise and vibration, but quickly became accustomed to riding on water and loves watching the scenery, birds, and just getting to “be with” (you know how that is!). 

Fireworks — No Problem


BTW, she has never reacted at all one way or another to the loud firecrackers on the 4th, or thunder, or anything else that we as humans might consider as disturbing. Not sure if you pre-conditioned them to loud noises, but we also have a gun range that we walk by regularly on our way to running on the dunes. same thing, no reaction. But let someone walk or ride a bike past the front gate she’s on full protection mode!

This video not only entertained us–it was so much fun to watch Lu with her ears flapping. Thank you, Sharyl, for thinking of us. I am sure all our readers will enjoy this, too.

We do condition the pups to sound–all bets are off when they leave here. (Haha) They have to adjust to a new family, the new environment, and their humans may unwittingly do things that ingrain a fear. It happens. Kudos to you for keeping Lu well-balanced.

  1. Thanks, Shela, for posting, and for your nice comments.

    However….I couldn’t find the link to the video (of her in the boat) on the email I just got from you. Maybe my computer?

    Just a pic of her with blanket on the bed, and a pic of her swimming.

  2. Sharyl something must be wrong on your end (sorry)–the video is embedded in the blog. It should show–not sure what to tell you. Did you open up and go to the link. https://owyheestarweimaranersnews.com/2019/07/18/4th-of-july/ If you try to get it only in the Email link–I don’t believe anything ever shows–which is a bit of a bummer, but I think the Email-only gives you the basics.
