They grow up fast, don't they?

Post by ptrthgr8 » Mon Apr 01, 2013 9:05 am

Hi, all.

My Weimaraner boy, Remy, is now just shy of 8 months old. They sure do grow up fast! :)

Here's a pic of Remy from 6 October, 2012 - his first day home with us. He was 8 weeks old:

Here's a pic of Remy retrieving his favorite dummy when he was 14 weeks old:

Here's a pic of Remy just before he turned 5 months old:

And here is a couple of pics I took of Remy this past weekend - he'll be 8 months old next week and now weighs in at just shy of 70 lbs:

He's still having fun being a pup and learning the basics for now, but at the end of May he's going of to the Autumn Breeze kennels in Isle, MN, to learn how to be a bird dog. I am absolutely looking forward to seeing Remy in the field and can't want til I get to snap that first pic of him bringing a bird back to me. That will be a proud day, for sure. :)

Cheers,

~ Greg ~

Thanks! He's a ham for the camera, too. I hope that bodes well for some great field pics later in the year. :)

Cheers,

The funny part is that he was the runt of the litter. Dawna (at PM Weims) said she guessed he'd be somewhere around 55-60 lbs when full grown, but did add the caveat that one never can really tell. I was a little worried that he might be on the small side for hunting, but I think I can set those fears aside. The snow's starting to melt here in North Dakota, so he'll be running around outside even more in the next few weeks. I think he's going to start bulking up quite a bit soon. :)

Cheers,
