Hi Shela and Cliff!
Each time I run across this photo I am reminded that I want to email you. Then I get caught up in other things, so here is the long overdue update– and the must- send photo.
Cabela has turned out to be quite the kid dog!
Caleb is too, but Hunter and Cabela have definitely bonded big time. She even reads books with us at night. 🙂 She is doing really well…feisty as ever and her leg doesn’t seem to bother her any more than it did in the beginning. It certainly does not stop her from chasing birds, digging holes to China, or running top speed over to the neighbor’s house to see what’s for lunch. Can’t believe she will be 7 this year!
Breeder’s Note: Cabela’s mother (Dottie) accidentally stepped on her when she was very young. This resulted in some undetected damage. Our guarantee was honored, and Cabela got a brother–Caleb. We are very happy to learn that Cabela is doing well. (For all you who wonder about us limiting foot traffic, the excited mother is another reason among many to be cautious about foot traffic.)
I wanted another Weimaraner, and we were delighted to be able to give Pokey a special place in our lives. Like your blog today (To Rescue or Not) all too well reminded me of when I brought her home and the adjustment period and trying to get her and Chester to get along. One who sees them together now would NEVER guess the rough start we all had. Nothing makes either of them happier than snuggling in my bed together or chasing each other around the yard. It’s also not unusual to find Chester in his kennel and Polka following him in to lay with him. Honestly I think they would both be happier if I could connect their kennels together lol
Adding Pokie to the fold….
Bringing in an older Weimaraner has its challenges. I loved getting Chester as a youngster, and I, personally, don’t consider Polka a “rescue” but it’s so interesting the different dynamics and challenges that arise from getting either a puppy or an older dog.
I’m a Weimar Addict
One day, probably after, Lord forbid, I lose one of my babies I will be getting another pup to join the family. I have become a lifelong weim addict.
I am a two-Weim person…
And I will always have two. There’s nothing in the world like seeing two weims that love each other and are attached to each other and at the same time love their humans oh so much as well. I can’t wait for our story to unfold even more. Each and every day I am amazed with something new. They have a way of pulling at the heart strings.
I have always love dogs and horses……..
Being raised with dogs and horses, I still have never felt a love towards dogs like I do my babies. They really are my kids. I really don’t think I could ever thank you enough, or truly tell you what you have done for me.
Life is not always fair…
You know I was having a really rough time in my life before I got Chester. I had lost who I thought was the love of my life, and my first weim. And honestly, Chester saved me. Then Polka came in and made me even more whole and happy. You do amazing things, and hope you know how appreciative I am for having found you and your amazing dogs.
We got off to a rough start, but she really has seamlessly fit in with our family. Hugs and puppy kisses from North Idaho and Jamie, Winchester & Pokey.
