You can never really appreciate all the small things (no pun) until you have something to compare it to. Owning a jack russell for years, it may bark alot, it may be a little crazy and dig up my yard but it does not get on my counter tops.
When we brought home our Weimreimer puppy, it was 8 weeks old. Cute, loveable, other than the house breaking, it was kind of like having another small dog.... but then... it kept growing, and growing.
Now it is tall. With it's monster long legs, it uses it to get at whatever you dont want it to. Nothing is sacred or safe from the wrath of a weim puppy. The breed is supremly curious, energetic and have the natural abilities (athletic and height) to get at everything and anything. On top of it all, it has an amazing sense of smell. You can not hide your food, you can not store it high enough, it will find it.
While our puppy is a great addition, he is now about 1 and 1/2 years old. He is overall well trained but I can not break him of his countertop jumping and sink licking habits. So... any suggestions?
