Mo and Cindy
Quick update on Mo and Cindy (AKA Cindee) before getting to the crazy part. Mo is, by far, the most personality-filled Weim we’ve ever had. He’s a complete goofball but is doing well with training. He is already crate trained; however, these days he sometimes needs a bit of extra motivation to kennel up at night or during meal times.
He’s getting the loose lead back down again as he decided to completely forget that the lead means that I decide where we go, not him. But he’s relearning quickly. He loves the farm and the freedom he has there at night. He’s in the new 40′ by 20′ kennel my brother and I put up during most of the day down there as when I’m there, I’m usually working with pesticides and other things I’d much rather he not get in to. But at night and on weekends, he gets to run as much as he wants and I’m teaching him the limits as far as how far away from me I prefer he stay (in anticipation of re-starting our yearly family camping trips).
Cindy is also doing very well. I think she’s enjoying just being Kim’s dog. In truth, she’s spoiled rotten. She loves cuddle time on the bed, loves her daily walks, and her ideal day is to chase a tennis ball in the back yard for about an hour in the morning, nap on the bed until noon-ish, go for a walk, and then nap on the bed for a while again. Sometimes she even gets to stay out of the crate at night and sleep with us. Overall, though, she is an absolute sweetheart and very mellow for a Weim.
Questioning Our Sanity
Loving, Fun, and Friendly
Bedtime and Blankets
Charlie’s favorite time of the day is getting ready for bed. She fluffs up any kind of blanket to make it comfy and then she is out!!
He went in yesterday (it was either then or Friday for our vet)
No reaction here, not even stiffness at the injection site. He has a very minor ear infection so we had his little ears cleaned out deeper by the vet and got some ear drops to clear it up. I love our new vet, when I told her I didn’t want lepto or corona in the DPPV she said she doesn’t use those any way! And she’s made it clear she likes to keep treatment simple and holistic when possible.
I had a fecal exam done too, just to be safe because he had some soft stool that day any way, and just to be safe, it came back this morning negative. So, we are off to a great start.
At the Barn
Today was his first trip to the barn and he was magnificent. He has such a winning personality, cautious but not nervous, and he adapts to new people and places so quickly! He’s already begun to calm for non sleep/night time crate time pretty well.
He’s going to be such a wonderful man!
Breeder’s Note: For more information on how to keep the Weimaraner puppy safe, check out our blog ‘Holistic for the Weimaraner.’
He’s doing wonderfully so far! No accidents yet, he’s been pretty great about only waking up in the middle of the night to go potty. He’s already met a few new people and working towards 100 new exposures in 100 days, and he’s getting pretty decent at the “touch” command already! (Of course, our socialization is only taking places in low-risk locations. We are aware of the very real risk of contracting Parvo in dog dense locations–we avoid them.)
Attention All Hands on Deck…
He’s a bit of a whiner, when he first gets put in his crate or when he’s not getting the attention he wants! I bet it must be just awful being a puppy and having to learn a little patients! ;p
The Cat and our Cuddle-Bug…
He’s so interested and into the cat, the cat ranges from curious through indifferent then to unamused. He’s just the biggest cuddle bug, loves toys and chasing the tennis ball, and loves loves loves the organic pumpkin baby food puree as a training treat!
