Yesterday we learned about Ohren’s help in the kitchen–you remember the photo of her helping pre-wash the dishes, right? If not-this her pictured above.
Her sister in Portland (Schatzi) also is a whiz at helping with the dishes. Jeff writes–
The kids are excited to have another dishwasher in the house!! Plus she slept through the night last night so that is a bonus with no pee in the crate. We are rolling now!!
Growing Like A Weed
Ohren is beautiful and a little troublemaker.
We love her so much and are so thankful to you for providing us with this little monster.
She’s growing like a weed! I hope others like seeing our new addition. I love seeing everyone’s furbabies!!!!
We are delighted to learn how things are going. It means a lot to us to have this update. Thank you! We know our readers will also enjoy it. One can only bring home so many Weimaraner puppies in a lifetime. Living vicariously through other’s experience is fun.
With the New Year and the idea of setting a New Year’s Resolution forefront, we might consider one. Another time we set these kinds of unrealistic and humorous goals is when we bring home the new Weimar. We say to ourselves that we are not making the same mistakes as last time. (oops) We pronounce things will be different. Maybe we say they are not on the furniture. (OMG) Well recently, we have heard many such a proclamation. Come on folks; we are all with Jeff and Marisa. Remember a couple of weeks ago when our blog featured the lovely Schatzi? If not click on her name to see that post.
Wind forward a couple of weeks and we hear from Papa Jeff how things are going. He writes “So much for not getting on the couch!!! She is great!!”
Have we not all been here? Well, consider this–it is typical that we go the way we went before or make new mistakes. Maybe you understand for what I speak.
~He’s getting along nicely.
The above snapshot is taken with my wife’s dog Caoimhe (pronounced Keeva). She has taken to him very nicely… They play a lot.
Here he is with Ruger, who actually curled up there when Jaeger was already there. Ruger is progressing slower; he has never been one to play a lot with other dogs.Jaeger is still gaining like a horse, 16.9lbs today. He doesn’t like crate training, but we are slowly making progress.
What could be more fun or work than raising the Weimaraner? It is vital to get the basics done right, so you can have years of enjoying your early effort. Housebreaking, crate training, the recall and walking on the leash are some of the most fundamental achievements.
Are you down and out with the holiday season in full bloom? We certainly hope not. We hear and understand that for some this can be a depressing time. Let’s say no to letting the pressure and (for some) the seeming isolation take hold. Positive thoughts help us buoy to the surface; however, we wonder if there is anything more therapeutic than the Weimaraner. Of course, we all know that Cliff and Shela are anything but without bias.
