~Five Monday and Growing
Happy Memorial Day!
A little update on our buddy Nixon, now 5 months. He is happy, so loved, growing like a weed (65 lbs), loves the beach and loves to swim and chase his kids! We spent the day cleaning graves and he was a great helper and quietly watched over us. Socially he is getting so good in public and behaves so well! He gets excited to go for rides and walks and is learning lots of tricks and commands. We wouldn’t trade this laid back snuggle buddy for nothing! We love him!
Nixon, while your update comes on the heels of the extraordinary six-segment Sherlock update, you are no less stellar. You are lovely and larger than we would expect. Many of the Weims in Fern’s DNA pool were the sort that you would have called undersized; however, even though Fern was around 63 pounds and Boone around 83, your boy is big. He is lovely. He doesn’t look fat–growing a pup slow is in their best interest, but they get most of their size in the first six months, so it might be that Nixon ends up to be about his papa’s size. We will see in time.
