Right away we saw him take her under his wing, so to speak. He taught her how to play - very important to a Weimy. He was super gentle with her, while letting her be as rough and tumble as she dared. It was great! She also learned to walk on the leash much more quickly than he did when he was a puppy, and we think it has had a lot to do with walking them together. She watches EVERYTHING he does, and she tries to emulate him. Other than zigzagging back and forth when she's not walking right next to him, she does a great job on leash!
She's also sleeping through the night, and she is kennel trained!! They "go in" every morning around 8:30 or 9:00, and they nap until about 1:30. That's in line with my work hours, so we intentionally chose to get them on that cycle. It has worked wonderfully! Now she willing trots into her kennel when it's time to go in. Anything for a little peanut butter treat!!
Andy potty training.... she is doing GREAT! She has gotten the concept of going to the door, ringing the bell, and going potty outside. The only issues come when we aren't paying attention. If we miss her attempt at going to the door, she will go in the floor. We are confident that as she grows and gains more control, this will dissipate. She's super smart, and has trained easily!
All in all, now they're BUDDIES! Two peas in a pod. Mutt and Jeff. Beavis and Butthead. Whatever you want to call them. Playtime is funny stuff. There's lots of this....
|Hey, what does she have?|
|Let me see if I might want that....|
|Yep, I wanted that.|
And there's lots of hanging out together once they've worked out their crazies...
All in all, we're so glad we made the crazy decision to get a second Weimy!! How could you not love this baby face??
