Lily’s Mom Writes…

Thank you so much to our awesome daycamp for the pic! I can’t believe how much @lily_the_weim loves day camp. Makes me so happy that even if I just have to run some errands, I can drop her off and she is so happy to play. She just loves it there. (Photocredit @petshotel2242 ) that face. ūüíöūüíö. I am such a sucker for that face.

Ping Pong Anyone?

 

 

Lily now wants to play ping pong every time anyone from our family does. It all leads to lots and lots of laughter from all. It has been super hot here lately and these little things keep her busy while also out of the heat.

Breeder Comment

Thank you, Lily, for being you! The fun, as well as healing you bring everywhere you go, is inspirational. Girl–you are a much-loved fur family member. You are the first Weim we ever heard of that plays ping pong too! I think you are full of life and it oozes on everyone around you. Cliff and I love it!

Hello From Kula and Pilikia

unknown-2Is your life crazier than usual? Do you wonder how you will get it all done–even when you love everything about the Holiday Season? Kula and Pilikia send greetings and talk about their many roles in the household. They have many things they see as the norm.

  • Their dad (Brent) goes away and sails all over the world. They have to wait at home with Mom in the home port for his return. They keep Mama safe.
  • Their Mama goes to work and sometimes they just have to watch the property. That can be a big job with nosy neighbors and whatnot.
  • There is staying in good shape mode in their household too! It involves hiking, running, biking, exploring, and whatever else the folks add to the agenda.
  • Finally, there is the sofa warmer responsibility.
  • We are the come with duo–we love taking the time to get away to our retreat at Downy. “Woof!”

Sharing is Good

Breeder’s Note: We cannot say this enough. All too many female Weims end up in rescue; more often than not, it¬†is¬†because¬†two female Weims cannot co-exist in the same household. They will both vie for top position. This can end up in a fur-flying situation; that unnerves the entire household. The Weim breeder must be able to¬†access the situation to ensure placement outcome. It also requires a bit more¬†skill that the average Weim placement, to bring home the second female. That is not saying there are not success stories. Nevertheless, if you speak with folks working in rescue, you will soon learn sad stories that are best avoided. In this breed, the female tends to want to rule the roost. They are not of a mind to share space, humans, or their territory; the worst possible decision is to add another dog. Even when they get along well with others, some females will not share their space with another dominant female. Emma and Alice are exceptions.

Almost without exception, a male is a better choice, (when adding a second pup to your family). They will often be content to let the female rule the roost. Keep in mind, the worst possible scenario is to rescue a second female. Most rescue organizations are not going to allow this to happen; however, some people shake the newspaper (and Craig’s list) in search of a Weim in need. This could prove detrimental to all concerned. The idea is noble; the outcome is most likely, anything but that.
