Stopping By to Say Thanks

Hyper Vyper

     ~The boat Vyper is in I bought just for him, he’ll be going on the boat this Friday as I kayak.

Garcia's Vyper_3851I wanted to thank you. I purchased a puppy from you in September, his dad was Tugman. I love my puppy soooo much. I named him Vyper, Hyper Vyper is his name. I just wanted to thank you!!!!!!!

 

My girlfriend is always taking pictures of him. Garcia's Vyper_6198

It Has Been a Rocky Road

In October a little over a month after I picked up Vyper, Elizabeth and I were involved in a motorcycle accident. My kneecap shattered in 10 places.  I had to have a friend watch Vyper for me; the recovery was difficult and there were times I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to keep him.  But I kept him and we are now best friends, He reminds me so much of my other Weim.   The only thing that we are still dealing with is his separation anxiety but were close.

Thanks again ~ Eric

We are beyond delighted to hear from you. When we hear nothing we imagine–

  1. Everything is going well, and the humans are busy.
  2. The folks are not happy with us for some reason.
  3. There simply is no time to report back to us about the Weimaraner.

We always hope it is just busyness that keeps people from sending the update. What an ordeal to have the accident after bringing home your puppy. It is good that your friend stepped up and helped you. It is even better that you managed to retain Vyper and he has become your best friend. I am sure he was helpful in the recovery process once you made a significant recovery.

For those who remember Stanley (click here), Vyper had a Longhair Blue littermate. The litter was small, and we kept two females from this mating–both Blue Longhairs. So, there are not many updates. Below is a recent photo of Stanley just for comparison. 20664815_703680989824411_1451339231764812281_n

The Need To

Touch

~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.

Notethis 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. 

Coffee Anyone

At The Pearl with Mom

16114744_607516862774158_2605732107544346067_nWe 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!

Makes Three!

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!!

 

 

 

Surviving

rosarios-stanley

Oh–that

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.fullsizerender

Those eyebrows!

Our foster Gus.

Resting…

Ice!

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
