~the importance of which cannot be overstated!
Stanley needs to touch me while he sleeps. 🐾🐶 ~ Melinda
Space Not Included
If you like to have your space–to not have people or your fur family member touching you, this is most likely the wrong breed for you. Weimaraners, typically are tightly connected to their humans. There are exceptions–some are a bit more independent. Nevertheless, the umbilical-type-tie with their human counterpart is prevalent. They are never happier than when they are touching you.
Distractions and Dilemmas
Of course, they love to be running free and playing. Generally–even during a romp, the Weimaraner (young and old) will give you some eye contact. I think it is to make sure you are doing what you should do. They need to manage the situation on both ends. You need to be where you belong. On occasion, they can get distracted when they find a gopher or vole. For a moment, you are out of mind and sight. Once the treasure is secure, the question is where to place it for safe keeping, or if it should be a special gift. You might not appreciate the occasional gopher on your pillow. It begs the question as to whether the Weimaraner owns the pillow or it is a treasured share. (hmm) Good question.
Note—this is the same trait which brings on severe separation anxiety. When left behind, the Weimar often feels abandoned. They must learn how to stay alone. This scenario is vastly misunderstood by many, and one reason so many Weimaraners end up in rescue. It is a tragedy.
At The Pearl with Mom
We knew Monday was around the corner. Yesterday, Mom and I went out and about.
She took me solo. She said it was to give me a break from the pack. She tells everyone I am very sweet. She loves to take me as a conversation piece if you ask me. One cannot be antisocial when there is a longhair weim at the end of the leash!
~What do you do?
You capture the moment and if possible and if you live in San Antonio, you get the cutting edge photographer group HILMY to save the moment. Maybe you saw the video capture shared on Facebook by Melinda. It is equally adorable. If not you can click on on the HILMY link and find it on their Facebook Page.
The lovely Stanley and two other Blue Longhair girls came about when Tugman managed a tie through the fence with Bubbles. So our planned mating (with Blue) got cast asunder and us not realizing it, the tails got docked at one-week. We were sad about the tail-docking. The docked Longhair is something that would never purposely do; however, things happen. We asked Melinda about accepting the absolutely adorable Stanley with his short tail. After numerous discussions with Pedro, they agreed they needed Stanley. Thank you, Melinda and Pedro. You rock!!
We made it through the first 24 hours. I’ve decided that getting a weim is like finding out your pregnant/just bought the first house/bought a car…total euphoria and then exhaustion and a questioning of sanity and capabilities. Hahahaha! It’s all good, the world is far more manageable for everyone after sleep.
Our foster Gus.
And There are Three
Winchester has tried playing but mostly barks–and grumbles. Opus chimes in and the puppy gets a little concerned-whines a bit and just watches them talk. Kenneling is fine, he gets vocal for a few min but goes back down. I took him out twice in the night with success. Actually (eek!) no accidents yet! He hates the bell at the door, sorry bud, that’s how we learn to go potty.
The one shocking thing is I haven’t let him on our bed. I want the two big boyz to know they still have their place so I’m waiting for a while on that.
Love you guys–talk to you soon~M
Thank you, Melinda. Now, everyone else, click here to check out what Mom did to Opus’s eyebrows.
