One Too Many Flashes
~Are We Done Yet?
The wiggles, the squiggles, and let’s not forget the squint. Yes, the puppies find the camera too demanding. They try to escape. We squeak a toy, clap our hands, and try to get them to look at the camera. Sometimes we get the look–oh the process is so exhausting.
Each and everyday I look at Reno and I thank you and Cliff for the great gift you gave me. I don’t know what I could say that I have not already said. I just love your blog and the Owyheestar weimaraner pictures. Your blog starts my morning.
Reno is the perfect travel dog. We put the camper away for the winter after 30 nights of use. We went from one end of the state to the other looking for wildlife that wanted and needed their picture taken. It took Reno but a short time to figure out what we were looking for. Now when I slow down and start looking, he will start looking. He will start to bark at deer that I don’t see. Another time we were in Hart Mt., and he was looking at a ridgeline; I looked where he was looking and there were 4 does looking back at us. I have to be sure Reno is not available for the chase; he chased 5 deer out of the willows along the creek.
If I leave him loose in a campground; he will make the rounds making friends and looking for t-bones and anything to eat. So I have to watch him close or make sure he is not able to do those things.
You say, “It is all about the relationship between you and your weim that is most important thing to remember.” This is very true.
Breeder’s Note: We thank Larry for all he has done, and will do with Reno. We also appreciate the many photos and updates he shares. We know our readers appreciate Larry’s contribution too! Cliff was surprised to hear that Reno could help spot the deer. Dogs do not have keen eyesight, so the fact that he can do this is extraordinary. The lack of their ability to identify what is ‘out-there’ can lead to watchdog behavior such as barking to alert their owner that there is movement. They may not recognize people they know well from a distance of 60 yards–leading to the incessant warning barking behavior.
