Annie Needs A Sister
~ Stepping up to a Two-Weimaraner Status
Sister For Annie
Bob and I are thinking of getting another Weim, a Blue female. Do you have any pups?
Shela Says—Availability is typically going to require a wait. We recommend everyone complete the application process at least six-months in advance and follow up by locking in a place on the Wait List (by giving us a deposit). Until we have the Wait List deposit, you are not in line to get a puppy. Of course Patricia, I have answered you privately about our current availability and the timeline.
Shipping A Pup
Also, it is an 8-hour drive for us, do you ever ship the pups?
Shela Says —We can ship a puppy, and it is only a one-hop flight from Boise to Portland or Seattle. That being said Patricia, Cliff and I try to make the exit process as safe, stress-free and easy for the pup and their new family. Most Pacific Northwest families meet him near Pendleton. This exit scenario requires planning as we can only make one trip per litter, but this is in the best interest of the pup and their families.
There is less risk of exposure to the deadly Parvo Virus–which undoubtedly has infected every pet area or frequent stop along the highways. Secondly, when the pups travel a distance together, it seems to ease the stress. It is like one of our many adventures–they load up and go for a drive a way from their former home, and then depart with their new forever family.
My suggestion is that we explore the options and see how we can best accommodate the exit process. I should also mention that folks have taken a flight from Seattle or other airports, and flown into Boise. We met them at the airport, and then they carried the new baby home as a carry-on. It is another way to get off to a great start with a lower risk factor. The time spent settling in the Sherpa Bag often proves beneficial on so many levels.

Previous Annie Updates to Explore
Annie is doing well, such a sweetheart and very spoiled. She really is a good girl most of the time, very busy! Took her to the beach for 5 days. Every time we slowed down in all the coastal towns she would start whining. Finally, after listening to her for a few hours we parked in the shade, rolled down the windows a bit and went into some shops. Gone for about 20 minutes, got back and boy was she a good girl for the rest of the trip. She finally got her ice cream cone. (photo above)
We are glad the much-loved Annie got her ice cream. We sincerely look forward to working with you again–getting Annie, a sister. We are positive she can lead the way and teach ‘Whining 101’ to the new upstart.
