He is a weimaraner, he’s gorgeous and is now 11 weeks old, silver in colour, with beguiling blue eyes. Leigh says he’s super-cute. We’ve named him Sterling which refers to his silver colour but also means genuine, authentic, real, true, pure, excellent, first-rate, exceptional, matchless, incomparable, worthy, admirable and valuable – Leigh chose the name and thinks it’s cool.
He is a joy but is also a handful! He is definitely a time-vampire requiring frequent attention. I need my sleep and am extra-tired at the moment because Sterling is also keeping us awake at night! If you have had a puppy – or kids – you’ll know what time-vampires they can be. Anyway, this of course is only a phase, and we’ll come through it, but in the meantime, we are sleep-deprived! He is lovely though, and we’re looking forward to being able to run with him later when he’s old enough. Sterling doesn’t know it yet but he is going to be my partner in Cani-Cross events. Cani-Cross is cross country running with your dog and there is a series of races organised in the UK and they are based around this dog/owner team and there are specific classes, rules and regulations. I can’t wait to get in to this new sport.
