Couch potatos

My last post...actually more of a rant... may have left the impression that the only thing a weim should do is hunt. While I do believe that a weim, or any gun dog for that matter, should be allowed to do what every gene in its body tells it to do, I also believe that they should be made a full fledged member of the family and treated with the respect and care they deserve.

In reality, things around our home usually go beyond just treating the dogs well. Ya, we spoil the heck out of them.

Officially they are not allowed on the furniture....ya right.

Officially, they must obey all of our commands.....ya right.

Officially, our dogs are hunting companions whose principle role is to find, point and retrieve birds. And this they do very well....for about 4 months of the year. The rest of the time, especially during the marathon winters we have around here, they tend to morph into couch potatos and do their best to bend all the rules we set down.

And we would never have it any other way.
