Sherlock (Part Two)
He is Beau’s first Weim
We have had Sherlock now for 3 ½ years. He is Beau’s first Weim and my second. As a puppy Sherlock was nearly perfect – he was happy, social, adventurous and learned an amazing heel early on. Our one mighty struggle was crate training. He just wasn’t having it, and wrecked a couple of crates in the process, At six months we shifted directions, and Sherlock had free roam of the house. We feared for our furniture, but he couldn’t have been happier or better behaved. We learned that each Weim is individual and we just needed to adapt to him. This was clearly part of his master plan all along…
Our family is an active family, and Sherlock’s love of the outdoors drives almost everything we do. He’s travelled with us on all of our family vacations, and so far has visited eight states and British Columbia. He has his own Instagram account (@thewileyweim) so we can share his adventures with our friends and family. There isn’t a body of water he doesn’t love, from the smallest puddle to the Pacific Ocean. He is obsessed with chasing a ball and is the fastest dog we’ve ever seen. He likes to control the pace of the throwing by holding on to the ball when he starts getting a little tired, but when we start throwing a second ball he can’t help himself and just chases the second with the first in his mouth. He also does some hysterical preening by running around us in a circle when he brings a ball back – it’s always just a lot of fun and laughs.
