Agility



Hunter and I have been doing agility for about a month now (though he did about 10 weeks of it as a puppy, too). I have to admit that it is the highlight of my week. The class is so much fun, and I'm always so proud of Hunter. I also love going home and bragging about how great he is ;-)
Hoping to get Hunter into a more advanced class in time to get Wiki into a beginner class. Then the best part of my week can get stretched out even longer! Eventually, I may look into getting some of the basic, smaller equipment to practice in the backyard.

Rennie



My cat Rennie spent most of her day sunbathing on the little rug in my room. Hope she enjoys her peace and quiet while it lasts! Not sure exactly how she is going to react to the pup coming, but I will do everything I can to get them to be friendly and make sure she knows that there is plenty of love (and, perhaps more importantly, space on my bed) to go around.

Echo's Little Problem

Echo played with the laser pointer just a bit too much as a puppy. She loves lights. As in, she is unnaturally obsessed with lights. She can spend hours every afternoon staring and pouncing as the shadows move around the kitchen floor. Got a little video of her today; less pouncing than normal, but you get the idea. I know pups (and cats) love laser pointers, but this makes me a little nervous about using them as toys.

Pups at Three Weeks

Pups at Two Weeks











One picture of each female pup at just over two weeks old. Eyes recently opened, but still can't quite focus. By next week, eyes should focus more, they'll probably get more active soon, and I imagine their differences will be more apparent.

Hunter and Echo Pool Time

It's been getting warm outside, so Echo and Hunter have been getting some of their first pool time of the season. Generally pretty entertaining, though I apologize for not so great camera video quality. Soon there will be three doggies for pool time :)

Rescues

VegasWeims, the people from whom I am getting my puppy, have started posting listings of Weimaraners they have rescued and are trying to place in homes. You can see the link here. I have already seen at least one dog taken off the page since pictures/descriptions were first put up, so hopefully that means that dog has gone to a wonderful new home. I encourage anybody looking for a weim to check out these rescued dogs, as well as other rescues.

Who's Your Daddy?

I previously included a link to pictures of the puppies' mommy Bela. The stud is Jager, whose pics can be seen here.

Updated Puppy Pic


Around three days old. Picture borrowed from vegasweims.com.

Puppies

I have wanted a Weimaraner for about seven years now, since falling in love with one at an obedience class I went to with my English Springer Spaniels. Today, I put a deposit down on a female Weim puppy. The pups were born Thursday (3/6/09) in the wee hours of the morning. Photos of their mother Bela can be seen here. Over the next several weeks I will be receiving pictures and other information that will help me choose a pup (one of the five females in the litter); in about two months, I will bring her home!

My pup's name will be Wiki. One can never underestimate the power of alliteration. Also, I was recently told that WikiAnswers moderators have Super Powers. I wanted a name that was short, unique, and would flow nicely for doing agility or other obedience training. When joking about Wiki Super Powers, I realized that the name actually fits pretty nicely. Hopefully my pup will live up to her name and know everything!
