Puppy Keela joined us with an abundance of bounding energy. We feel so blessed to have our third generation Weimaraner join our family and she certainly came with an abundance of character too... confidently forward and exceptionally loving. Keela seems to be enjoying a mixture of activities - obedience, field gundog, ring-craft and fun agility. Always happy to be busy but when settled really does loves a cuddle...
With Cashew being 12 yrs, Tango 11 yrs and Breeze 6 yrs of age, we welcomed our little girl 'Keela' into our home - one Breeze's six puppies, who showed a balanced proportion of both formation and character from such an early age. Keela also formed an early bond with Tim, which was important to me as Tim had previously felt the other Weims leaned more towards me - now we have a true little Daddy's girl.
From the time the other puppies left for their new homes, Keela wanted to become Tango's best mate and Tango obliged around such an energetic puppy. It was lovely to see them wonder round the garden and paddle in the pool together. We sadly lost Tango to illness when Keela was just five months old and found ourselves back to having just three dogs but seeing Keela snuggle up to Tango on the days she was poorly will always remain a cherished memory. Keela has an abundance of love, she is frequently snuggled up close to someone.
Training and events were somewhat restricted during the Coronavirus lock-down which unfortunately came about just as Keela reached 1 year of age and was ready to really stretch her abilities but we endeavoured to continue and, so far, she has seemed tolerant of my nervousness in the show ring and she simply loves being out in the field practicing for her Gundog HPR tests.
Time never stands still and we quickly came round to such time when we decided to find Keela a suitable boyfriend... Eddie' (Skilaki Move on Up to Bifonda) and went on to welcome our fourth generation of Weimarner puppies into our home in August 2021 - all eleven of them! And what a super mum she was to them all. It was with deep sadness that Great Grandma Cashew left us the day after Keela's puppies were born (at the ripe old age of 15 yrs) but seeing her wander down and peer into the whelping pen, checking on Keela and her pups being born before she closed her eyes, shall be another of those cherished memories we shall keep forever.
