I thought I'd post even though I've been away for forever. See attached. We have a visitor named Maddie. She's an approximately 6 years old, intact, Weimaraner. All I can say is, OMG, this breed is sooooooo different than Shelties (herding dogs), that's for sure. Anyone own or ever own a Weim? I'm sure you're dying to know why I have a Weim in the house. Long story very short, my BF's uncle passed away a couple of years ago and she was living with non-dog people who really didn't have time for her, offered us to take her, and bam, we took her home. We did so for two reasons, 1. we felt sorry for her and know we could give her a better life assuming she's not too energetic, and 2. my BF was close to his uncle and I have a feeling she'll stay here because he doesn't want to re-home her outside the family and this is the only thing he really has of his uncle (but he's trying to be pragmatic and making sure it's good for the family, aka the Shelties. I have to say, it's been such a trip. It's interesting living with a gundog. I've only really been around herding breeds (agility), so this has been a total eye-opener. My bf loves dogs that cuddle and Koji is a total cuddler, but dang, he holds nothing to the Weim. She wants to sit on me all the time or flops her 70lb? body against me as she curls up in the tiniest ball. Then we found out she's a snorer. Like seriously, on her back, snoring. It's hilarious! Thankfully and maybe because she's older, she's not super active, but we'll see how much of the house gets destroyed on Thursday (her first full workday being alone). The three of them are getting along in the sense of everyone ignores everyone. Of course, we took her in and next thing we know, she's going into heat. Seriously, people, this is new to me. Getting Vogue was new (never had a female dog ever in my life) and now I have a female in heat. Yikes! Trust me, there are no walks right now (she pulls like crazy and this ain't no 20lb Sheltie I can control) and there won't be until she's done. We're even making sure she stays away from the fence because the neighbor has 3 dogs and who knows if they're fixed or not. This has been such a crazy experience and for me, especially, because I've never owned a large dog; Koji is the largest dog I've owned. And yet, they consider Weim's to be "medium" dogs, the same as Sheltie's? Really? All I can say is, I thought Shelties were beautiful, damn, that girl is gorgeous and I prefer floofy dogs. Vogue looks even tinier and it makes me truly appreciate their size. I know I can pick up Maddie, but yeah, you know how hard it is to move a Weim that's sleeping between your legs because she MUST snuggle? LMAO!! Thought I'd share with my Sheltie family. This is the weirdest, but funnest thing. Yes, I know that's not a word, but too bad. Haha!
