Hello From Kula and Pilikia
Is 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!”
PS: Dad wanted to make sure you knew we were keeping up our end of the deal here in California.
OR TWO FIT NICELY….
Emma and Alice are good girls
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.
