A little about the crew

Here is a little about my furbabies...

Baby is a 21/2 year old silver weimaraner or as my kids call her a rewinder lol. We got her at 11 weeks old from some people that lived out in nowhere they were not reputable breeders by any means and frankly had too many dogs IMO but no matter that is where my girl came from. My friend and I drove around for forever trying to find the address so that I could pick out a puppy to be my companion and help me through a bit of a rough patch in life by just being a friend. So we finally find the place after knocking on a couple wrong doors (who knew that so many people drove buses for the school in one little area). They all looked the same it was a mass amount of silver little bodies so obviously there was no picking out by looks lol. Baby she stood back from the group examining who these strangers were in her home then she came forward just to get a sniff all the rest were piled on my lap full of kisses, but there was something about that one that just stayed back not cowering but attentive. I told them I wanted her and I put a collar on her to tell the difference between her and her sisters and because I couldn't take her home that night since there was a lot of stuff already planned for...and besides what is better than surprising you soon to be husband with puppy kisses in the morning :-). Our lives were forever changed with Baby and still is a constant new day with her.

Buddy is our second weim he came to be with us about a year ago at the age of 3. An advertisement in the classifieds weimaraner needs new home. So I call and ask if they still have him they did so I told my husband I wanted to go see him and discuss possibly giving him a good home and Baby a friend to play with. He agreed to go meet him and I was so excited we packed Baby up in the car and went to the other side of town. The lady brought Buddy(who at the time was named Rodney) out and his condition was disgusting to say the least.     . He was skin and bones and had a large cut all the way around one of his back paws. Him and Baby hit it off instantly. I told her to let us go put Baby in the car so that we could all talk for a minute and I told my husband that we couldn't leave him there not with her. So we told her we wanted him I asked for his shot record and vet record as she said he was current on everything but he had no rabies tag on or anything. She said she didn't get them from the people she got him from and she didn't know what vet he went to or anything...hmmm ok then. So a trip to the vet for a health check and to clean up his foot and vaccines it was off to the shelter to get him chipped. Aside from being not well taken care of Buddy was ok. And then he started packing on the weight maybe a little too well lol to be the happy lovable boy we have now.

Sarge is our most recent addition he is now 31/2 months and an amazing little ham. He and his brothers and sisters were being sold in a wal mart parking lot out of the back of a truck in the cold when they were only 6 weeks old. They guy said he already sold mom and dad and if that was true or not I don't know. So I ended up taking the pups  home with me after paying the guy an insanely low amount and went home and surprised my husband...lucky for him I didn't have plans to keep them just to make sure they were healthy and to let them grow up some before finding them good homes. Well one of the good homes turned out to be ours by choice of Jason we got down to only having Sarge left and he started to get so attached that there was no way that he was going to go anywhere. So now we are up to 3 silver furbabies and hopefully that will be all for a few years ;-)
