Berkley

I just wanted to send you a few updated pics of Berkley. She’s 3 now! 


Here are her favorite things: sneaking under the curtain when the heat is on (doggie sauna), going for a hike with her family (and the car ride there, and the swimming that takes place when we hike to a lake), and snuggles on the couch (with me, preferably).


Occasionally she still runs away with something that’s not hers, and she still thinks she can get away with hiding under the coffee table (in this picture it’s a little elf shoe she took off the Christmas tree).

Note: Berkley is very clever with her Doggie Spa–we are impressed.


Finally, the Christmas sweater was a hit this year, but perhaps not with Berkley. She wasn’t a huge fan of wearing it. However, my goal was to cheer people up in our neighborhood this year. And her sweater definitely helped the cause. We brightened all kinds of people’s faces.
Happy New year to you and Cliff! Thank you so much for our sweet girl!!Sincerely, Amanda

I love that you brought a smile and a little sunshine to other people who are in desperate need with your Christmas sweater. And more than anything else–the way she is a part of everything family activity. Thank you for keeping us apprised of how things are going and her antics–and especially the Doggie-Spa.

Old Friends

~Reuniting with Heater Vent

As the leaves dance from limb to ground, so begins the challenge of reminding Asher — the door to the backyard cannot remain open all day.  Brrr, did the weather change ever so quickly with a crisp chill in the air…it appears that fall lacked a slow grace.  Even Asher noticed as he snuggled with his friend the “heater vent” today.

‘Baby it’s Cold Outside!’

Winter is coming!  So does the question, what to do with the energy of a WEIM when ‘Baby, it’s cold outside’?!?  Any suggestions?  I am open.

Oh, the joy of winter–a lot of Weimaraners love the snow. Most, however, are not wild about the rain. Stackhouse is unfazed by the moisture falling from the sky–he looks for every puddle opportunity despite the outdoor temperature. To our chagrin–the muddier the puddle, the happier might seem. Perhaps one of our readers will share a realistic idea that will be helpful.

Winter exercise is always a problem. There are options–put on rain gear, and dress how you need and get out for the usual walk is the most common solution. We have seen people using a treadmill–that is a cool idea. Ultimately, I think what we need is a big wheel that creates electricity–maybe we could keep it going 10 hours a day. Haha–free power sounds fabulous.

Warm Spots Rule

They also know how to make use of heat vents, fireplace hearths, and clothes dryer offerings to find warmth.  They are snuggle-bunnies of the best kind. We can call them resourceful opportunists.
