Von Greyson Weimaraner's is the breeder that caught our attention. He breeds to the old, original German standard of Weims so his dogs, especially his males, are huge! Up to, and over, 100lbs. We spoke with William and decided (mutually) that one of his puppies would have a good home with our family. He invited us down to his ranch (in the desert!) to see his... well, the only way to put it is "herd!" Counting the puppies, that man has twenty-one (that's 21) dogs on his property! They're well bred, well behaved and well cared for. And they LOVE meeting (and being petted by) new people.
We chose our puppy, a very healthy 22lb (at 8 weeks!) little boy and brought him home.
That was Saturday. Needless to say, we spent the rest of the afternoon and evening mooning over our new little addition. He's aDORable! We also spent the rest of the day making sure he went OUTside to do his "business". (snerk!) He seems to be settling in okay, although there's a lot of sleep involved still (he's still a puppy, after all, just a rather large one) but he's following us around and beginning to play more with us. Oh, yeah, and today he became an escape artist. He's very proud of himself for getting out of his pen.
Anyway, here's our newest family member. Please meet Zackery "Zack" Tillar Sears.
|He wasn't going to be allowed on the furniture since he's|
going to be so huge... You see how long that lasted!
And Saner Sister is giving him snuggles and cuddles while
he naps.... and naps.... and naps some more after playing.
