My Versatile Hunting Weim
I just wanted to take a minute and tell you a little bit about my weim. He has been a ball of joy since day one! He is my best friend, and we literally do everything together. And he gets so bummed if he doesn’t get to go with me when I leave, for something like school or work.From a little puppy, I worked with him to become the amazing hunting buddy he is today. I’ve trained a couple of dogs before, and none of them were so coachable as him. He’s not perfect, but we are still in some of the training. By next summer he should be on point!!! He has an amazing nose, and I’m amazed by what he’ll find.
He is always happy and loves to go for rides in the truck, bed or in the cab with the windows down. And he starts whining like crazy when we’re getting close to our hunting spots outta excitement.you can tell hunting is in his blood, he’s all smiles and joy when out in the blind, he watches all the birds flying and starts to wag his tail like crazy when they start coming in.
He does an amazing job at retrieving and pointing on birds, he does great in water and loves to be outdoors. He loves hunting!! 4:30 in the morning he’s up and pumped to go hunting and has plenty of energy to hunt all day but when we get home, and its time for bed, he jumps on my bed and turns into a snuggleball and take up most of my bed but I love it.
He has been the best hunting dog, truck passenger, Saturday explorer and most importantly, my best friend. And I’d like to thank you so much for everything you’ve done over at Owyhee Star. You’re my number one choice when getting a dog and always be!! Everyone asks where I got such a beautiful dog and Owyhee Star’s the answer!! Thank you again so much!!
She also got stung by a bee the other day, much to her dismay. She has a bit of a bee phobia, and what we call “the bee run”, with her back arched, her tail tucked and a wild look in her eyes, which we learned to recognize after she got stung a few times last summer. It’s not really funny, but we do get a chuckle out of her antics.
This time she was enjoying a swim session with several other dogs (one of which also got stung) but decided right then and there it was all over. Her doggy friends continued to swim and play, but Dora sat down next to me and moped/licked her sting for the rest of the time. Always dramatic, this one!
So good to hear that Dora’s puppy siblings got placed well this year. I love love to see all the faces on the blog- all such perfect variations on a theme. 🙂
Thanks for keeping us all together and updated on the blog. You’re doing such an awesome thing. ~ Carrie
Breeder’s Note: Many Weims are allergic to bee stings. They will swell up like a basketball. Ask your vet about Benedryl dosage–you might need to be prepared for such a reaction.
