House Rules

~Regarding–the Furniture

We try to have strict rules so all the furniture doesn’t get taken over by the dogs since both Jim and I are allergic to big loads of dog dander.

Our compromise is this:  One ancient sofa near the front hall is all theirs.  Sucia and Patos know that they can wrestle, scratch, jump on, chew toys and rough-house all they want on “their” old couch. The rule for the rest of the furniture is off-limits.  The one exception is this gray couch, and by invitation only,  in this picture is that it is off-limits, UNLESS it is covered with one of their fleece blankets.  they can only be on it when it is covered with one of these fleece blankets, usually when one of us is on the couch and want a pup to snuggle next to us.   Clearly, this was an afternoon that Sucia and Patos discovered that the fleece blankets were left on unattended…….😊

Every household has rules–spoken or unspoken. Sometimes we humans fail to keep our end of the bargain, and it is either confusing or allows bending the rules a bit. (Haha) Weims have a way of working things to their liking. We all know that. Don’t we adore them for their shrewdness — for the challenge they present? I think we can agree, we do.

Thank you, Megan, for this fabulous update. We truly appreciate it!

High Standards for Luna

Define Spoiled

I have people tell me that my dog is spoiled, I say “How so?!”
I don’t know many dog owners that don’t have a bed for their dog …
Or even one in each room for that matter!
And I’m fairly certain that many dog owners build a special insert for their vehicles so their pets have a place to rest in the car …
And who doesn’t get pet-icures together?!
So I think I’ve proven my point, besides she’s actually pretty helpful; right now she’s draped around my neck so when my neck gets tired i have a neck pillow ready to go! And she’s very helpful shredding junk mail & opening packages
All joking aside, yes she’s spoiled but I actually do expect more from her obedience wise as well as companion wise than most people would of their dogs. I am a perfectionist and my standards for my spoiled dog are very high … She exceeds almost every time! At five months old she is 49 pounds, sits, stays, downs, heals, doesn’t jump on people (most of the time!), retrieves and we’ve started playing a “use your nose” to find things game … Just to mention a few!
