~A Bundle of Energy and Joy
Earl was born February 28 and came to us during California’s quarantine. We weren’t really planning on getting a puppy but all of our kids were home and it seemed like a good thing to do. We are so glad we did! Earl has brought us so much joy (and so many smiles!)
We’ve been working on swimming, though he would much rather be retrieving his ball, which he could do all day long. Earl had endless energy so we’ve started taking him on hikes in the Santa Monica Mountains. He is becoming quite the fitness trainer as he does not allow us to be stationary for long! And everyone who meets him is enamored by his striking good looks. (Luckily, he doesn’t realize how handsome he is.)
We are so grateful to Owyheestar for making our dreams come true of owning a Weim and getting us this wonderful dog!
Since Earl loves the retrieve, you should be able to work him into the water –for the water retrieve. Swimming is easier on the joints and burns a lot of energy. If you have a pond where you can work him along the edge, it would be a good plan to work on the water–slowly getting him to go further and further into the water. At first, toss along the end–where he will swim, this should be easy peasy.
