….his earlier habit of shredding sweaters ended by Christmas and so far (this won’t last) he’s not really counter surfing. I think we are, ourselves, well trained about not leaving out anything we don’t want a dog to destroy.
I also think chewing on moose antlers has slowed kept him occupied. He doesn’t destroy stuff animals…we’ve had dogs who would do it like it was a contest and they were being timed on “how fast can you skin that rabbit”. Our old Weim Temblor had a couple of toys he loved to the end that he’d had since puppy hood. Tarmac is more like him than our old boy Tsukiji (who thought it was his job to seek and destroy anything with stuffing).
What a great little discussion on the Weimar Ways. Thanks
~ At Six Months
Tarmac is an incredibly sweet, playful and trainable dog (we’ve had Weims and pointers who resisted on some aspects of training…he’s loved it). He is incredibly calm (should I say “for a Weim”). He considers every person and dog he meets on our hikes and walks to be a “friend” and when he has a second meeting he’s in “full wag”…they know he’s incredibly happy to see them again. He’s devoted to his standard poodle sister and she to him. I can’t imagine life without Tarmac.
We are delighted to learn that Tarmac is doing well. The fact that he is so engaging and friendly is a huge plus. Not every Weimaraner is so friendly and engaging–some prefer their family.

She’s loving her new home!
We are ready for the task of making both girls feel loved and special. I believe we can get Gracie (our lovely and adorable older Weimaraner) to turn around, I’ve seen it with her and other dogs. Vigilance is the key.
Then This Happened
We are happy to see Campbell is doing excellent, and that Gracie is adapting to the upstart’s arrival. You have the perfect approach. Thanks for letting us know how things are going–also, for the video and photos.

(Saturday October 26, 2019) What a day…and we’re not done yet! Baby “T” (name still under discussion) was great meeting friends and relatives today in Roseville and he was perfect on the drive home. This was taken after a wave of relatives had left just before we left Roseville.
He comes with the ability to run after small children (very happily). I’ve had a half dozen alerts that the power would go out at 4 p.m. It’s now 5:30 and the car is unpacked and I still have power but wanted to get this to you today as we could be without power until Wednesday. Not a big deal really…glad its a weekend.
Love to you both, Barb
It always makes us happy to know a puppy has made it safely and is making an excellent adjustment. All the socialization and work should set you up for success, but it is an ongoing process. Thanks for the news. We sincerely hope you are safe. Let us know how things go.
