Lovable and More

My Pushkin

It has been a little while since I have sent an update on Pushkin. How can I resist this face of anticipation? Push loves to play fetch. As soon as we get up in the morning he has his ball in his mouth, even as he heads out the door to take care of his morning necessities. I can hardly remember what it is like to have a morning cup of coffee without having a ball dropped in my lap and Push waiting, rather impatiently, for me to toss it to him. He loves to catch it in mid-air.

Advanced Obedience Again

I have decided that we are going to take the advanced obedience class a second time, more for my benefit than for Push. When we took it previously I was in an orthopedic boot due to a broken foot. The foot has healed so maybe I can keep up with him this time. 

The Ease of it is not lost on me

I also want to let you know that when the local feed store closed down the in December, I decided to try Chewy to get the Diamond Naturals dog food. The food was actually a few dollars less from them. It was delivered as promised and in good condition. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Push is a high energy, stubborn, independent, and totally lovable boy. Thank you for such a great dog. ~Marie

Hello Marie! Thank you, for the regular updates on you and your OwyheeStar Weims. We love the effort you have put into Pushkin’s training–even when you were challenged to keep up. You are a great Weimlover!

Readers–if you want to revisit the last Pushkin update–click here! If you don’t remember the backdrop to the earning of the certificate, you will want to take the time to read Marie’s story. I think it will put a smile on your face.

Ruby with Martin on May 2nd, 2014

Our paperwork shows Ruby weighed 3.4 Lbs, whereas the largest pup in the litter weighed 5.8 Lbs. That is a sizable difference at that age–six weeks. Two weeks later, she weighed 8 Lbs, and one of her litter-mates weighed right at 12 Lbs. Sometimes the smallest pup in the litter remains smaller, whereas other times they do not. The photo of her tucked in Cliff’s jacket was taken on the day of our Discovery and Placement Test. She was so delicate, and tiny. She didn’t want to run the test.

Toni reports on Tuesday, June 6th, 2014–She weighs 26 lbs. started dog obedience last night with Jan.  She is such a gorgeous baby ! We both adore and love her so much!
