~Have You Heard of a Soft-Mouth?
(8/15/2019) I have to tell you guys about Tikka today! We’re camping on a lake and we paddled out to an island, well Tikka obviously “found something ” she was super excited and kind of lounged then it looked like she tossed something but kept after what ever it was. I noticed a mama bird that was upset so I called her off. As we were leaving she ran back that way and started swimming away from us and wouldn’t come when called. When she finally came back it was obvious that she had something in her mouth (dang it a dead baby bird!) . She was swimming differently, slow and careful. She swam directly to me and gave me a live baby bird that I returned to it’s nest
😊Here are some photos from our recent adventure.
Supposedly, the Weimaraner is not naturally soft-mouthed. Small game and game birds frequently don’t fair well–but having said that, Cliff had had many a retrieved bird fly out of an OwyheeStar Weimaraner’s mouth. A soft-mouthed dog is a good thing.
Thank you, for sharing your story–and all these great photos. We know everyone loves seeing Tikka and Luna.
