I just had to share some recent pics from her recent beach adventure. My favorite is the first–
Lily goes to a doggie day care (A dog SITTER) with a family who opened a dog sitting service. Most pups stay 7-5. But if you go out of town. They keep them overnight. I started using them because they had a Weim. His name was Hatcher. They understand Lily and have a special place in their heart for her. This is where she stays with the day care once a week, and stays with them every time I need a place for Lily overnight.
They had planned to only have day camp dogs when I asked if they could keep Lily over overnight, they said yes–and took her camping. It is the first camping trip in a tent on the beach for Lily. They did beach day and the other dogs left, and Lily camped at the beach with the family. They lost their Weim (not too long ago) and are not ready for another dog, but just love love our Lily. So here are some day and night time pics from her adventure. Of course my favorite is the one she looks like ET w her blanket and headlamp on–at the top of this post.
Not everyone can or does use daycare–but several OwyheeStar Weims seem to benefit. Whether this is doable or not will depend upon early socialization, the particular Weimaraner, and the available options. Some Weims love going to daycare–for certain families, it is essential to have this option available — what an extraordinary situation for Lily with a Weim-loving family.
