Happy Birthday Dolly -Our Weim turns 7!

Dolly
 Today is our lovable Weimaraner's 7th birthday. Dolly Loretta was born on Nov. 29th, 2004 in a litter of 6 at a breeder's house in Atlanta. When Dolly's mom stepped on a rusty nail and contracted tetanus, the breeder dumped the newborn pups at a shelter. They were a week old. The shelter called Wolf Creek Weimaraner Rescue in Tenn. and Amber (manager) raced there and picked them up. She and others bottle fed them for many weeks and at 3 mos. old they were adopted out.
- Rob's friend Lynn Chandler told Rob to check the rescue websites and adopt another Weim after losing his puppy Buzz in Feb 2005 to a reckless driver. On March 18th, Rob and friend Jeff drove to Knoxville and picked up Dolly.
 - Dolly is loyal, obedient and extremely affectionate. She follows us around the house and always needs to be with someone, while our Dachshunds, Franklin and Sprite sometimes prefer alone time. Dolly loves Beggin' Strips and chicken or tuna on her food, and loves walks. She loves rope toss in the backyard, too. She doesn't like cars driving by the house and growls, and little white dogs (one lunged at her as a pup and she never got over it). She's also afraid of bicycles because a 7 year old accidentally fell on her while riding his bike. 
  Dolly is the most loving, loyal dog anyone could ask for- She's our little "poo poo head," and tonight she gets to pick out treats on a visit to Petsmart.

DOLLY'S BROTHERS and a WALK THIS WEEKEND: Everyone in the Mid-Atlantic enjoyed the mild weekend weather including our dogs. We loved walking in a sweatshirt or tee-shirt. Look how happy Dolly, Franklin and Sprite are walking in the mild temps and sniffing around!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
