Homer Goes Home

Berkeley Samples Homer's Ear

Homer finally got his new home last night. He is now living in the Phoenix area with a very nice couple. But for him the most exciting part is without a doubt the 1.5 year old Vizsla that he is going to get to live with. They brought the Vizsla down with them when they picked Homer up to see if they would be compatible, I have never see two dogs click so well. They both have the same maniacal drive play as hard as they can, as much as they can, when ever they can. They were quickly chasing each other around our pool at insanely fast speed. It is nice that they are the same age, so that throughout out there life they will always have approximately the same energy level. A very nice match.

A Rare Moment of Rest for Berkeley and Homer
Berkeley however is not nearly as thrilled with Homer finding a homes as in the three weeks we had him, had grown quite attached to him. It was sad to see her go on a hunt for him when she got up this morning. Even though she could not keep up with him, she really enjoyed playing with him. The cats on the other hand are feeling absolutely triumphant, no doubt they hope the number of weimaraners will continue to decrease. So now the house is once again relatively peaceful, but only for a few weeks, when things will change again, this time forever.

Three Weimaraners Can Ger a Little Overwhelming

Another Foster Weim

Unexpectedly we are once again hosting a foster weim. Yesterday we heard about a weim that was being held down at our local shelter. So we decided to go pick him up and start the process of finding him a new home. Likely when I go up to Phoenix on Thursday on unrelated business I will be taking him up with me to his new home.

We have decided to call him Homer, and is it turns out he just a pup. My guess he is somewhere between 10 and 16 months old. He appears to physically be fully grown, but he still posses all of his puppy exuberance, something almost certainly lead him to being dumped in the shelter.

Like most puppies Homer is mouthy, he likes to examine everyone and everything with his moth. Who ever dumped him in the shelter, after having for only six weeks (they adpoted him from the shelter in February) saw this typical puppy behavior as him being vicious and left him at shelter with a report indicating that he was very aggressive and bitey towards people, a virtual death sentence at our local overcrowded shelter. It makes me mad the people would not go through the trouble to the research to find out that all puppies go through a mouthy stage, but they can easily be broken of it, and that it does not mean that they are vicious or dangerous dog. In 24 hours that we have had I have already broken him of much his mouthiness towards people.

Homer is having great fun playing my weims, particularly Berkeley, they are enjoying chasing each other around the house. Poor Berk who just tuned five, is finding however that keeping up with a puppy is extremely tiring. I wonder what she will think when the baby shows up in June.

More Stuff for the Nursery

My mother is definitely having fun with the idea of being a grandmother. Last night we received a package from her that it contained more decorations for Amelia's room that she made, letters that spell out Amelia's name that matching the bedding for the crib, which she made for us earlier. It looks amazingly good. It is also apparent what an awesome grandmother that mother is going to be.
