Junebug's newest friend

My mom and Ralph adopted a Weimaraner dog from the shelter a few weeks ago.  He is two and a half and still a very active dog.  In fact, the reason he had been at the shelter for so long is because of his energy level- many people really couldn't handle him.  My mom and Ralph are both retired and both very active (Ralph runs 6-8 miles a day and mom is an outdoor enthusiast/gym rat in her own right), so Orion was the perfect dog for them.  They've loved having him so far, and it was a great time having Junie, Orion, and Bella (my brother's dog) all around to play together.  Junebug has never slept so well in her life as she did last weekend.  She was just so frickin exhausted!!!  Lovely for us :)

One cute pup!


  1. I had a Weimaraner growing up! She was VERY active, but sweet and loyal.

  2. I've always wanted a Weimaraner! June bug is too cute! I love it that your parents considered their activity level before picking a dog and I love it that an active dog found active parents! Yay! for happy puppy adoptions!

  3. Awww, what a great dog! We have a lab/weimeraner mix, so I can relate to having a high energy dog!

  4. Beautiful dogs!

    Thanks for the marathon comment! I actually have Hal Higdon's half marathon training program and as soon as I find a race, I'm going to start training. I know his plan is a 12 week plan, so I'm not sure how to train before that - maybe just start it right away and maintain the 10 & 11 week schedule?

  5. I love them!! Too cute! So glad he found a good home!!
