Toto-lee Cairn Posted May 24 Share Posted May 24 If you recognize me from the random times I pop-in here, and leave an epistle . . . you may recall that my Toto is my second Cairn, and my heart, and that my husband's heart goes to his Weimaraners, and have since he was a little boy. He's never not had a dog, and if there was more than one, you could count on one of them being his Weemie. He can rattle off their names, in sequence, and tell you what was special about each one. When we lost Rupert (to cancer) after the first of this year, we had decided he would be the last Weimaraner. Strange how things go. The end of the week, we'll be bringing home a 5-month-old Weimaraner puppy, that as fate would have it, is a grandson of Rupert's father. I don't think George is trying to duplicate Rupert. I do think he just wasn't ready to be 'dog-less.' The breeder is happy, George is happy, I am moving forward -- hesitantly, but excited for us -- and Toto? I predict that after a few months of being an only child, it may come as a BIG surprise. I am hoping my best little pal in the world may come to enjoy having a young-er dog that will play with him, keep him company, ya da ya da ya da. My goal is to do this right, the introduction, and adding the Weimaraner into the mix, so I would appreciate, more than you know, on how to make this go as smoothly as possible. Toto never did really bond with Rupert. Tolerated him. And in some ways, probably made Rupert's life 'hell.' I liken it to a teenage boy, 'into his life,' with a four-year-old younger brother. The tables have sure turned. Toto turns 5 today, and we are bringing home a puppy, a very large one. So, Happy Birthday, Toto. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
