My sweet boy just turned two in March and he is just the best. He lives a semi-charmed life in downtown Saint Paul where we walk 2 to 3 miles every morning together and then he goes out a few times a week on pack walks with a group of other dogs that live in the neighborhood along with a good friend of mine, who is also a dog trainer. He LOVES going for walks with his friends! He is so proud and whenever a new dog is added to the pack, he wants to show them how to do it, “This is how we walk”.
He is THE GOOFIEST dog I’ve ever met. He smiles at me when I come home and he is so affectionate, leaning into hugs and giving lots of kisses. I have only had short hairs prior to Tilman and I have to say that in the last 6 months, his fluff has really come into it’s own. He is three different colors of Weim and the hair behind his shoulders, down his back and on his entire torso has turned into this long bunny soft light colored hair. He gets complimented all the time about what a gorgeous boy he is!
Tilman is an extraordinary example of the breed. He is curious and sometimes cautious but not fearful.He looks to me for his cues. He is friendly and loves everyone he meets. He is whip smart and will learn anything you can think to teach him so fast. He is a helper and wants see and smell and try everything. He loves to learn and show what he knows and was a breeze to train because he is so eager to please however, like any willful breed, I have needed to remain consistent with his training. TIlman also loves the water but is still hesitant to swim much. He will not hesitate to lay in a mud puddle, however.
Take care– Emily and Tilman (and little big sister Nara, the Chihuahua)
We are so happy to hear from you–and to see how well Tilman is doing. Stackhouse is a mud puddle flopping Weim–OMG We love that Tilman smiles –we have a Longhair girls that smiles and wags her entire body. It is adorable.
