Rainy Day

The Life and Times of a Weimaraner

Scar Back!!


In Moab everything that surrounded us was public land which meant we could take her hiking where ever we wanted. She has become accustomed to that. Here in the Park City area however all the land is private so finding her places to run has become a bit of a challenge. Summit County has a pretty restrictive leash law but Weimaraners need to run and run and run.

That being said everyone has told me “Take her to the rail trial…its safe” but I worried about all the barb wire that is around. We have already had a run in with barb wire that resulted in 23 staples. And if you have followed this blog at all you know that Rainy seems to be a bit accident prone. When she runs she does it with blinders on. But…I took their advice because I was getting chastised for being over protective and only seeing what could happen…not reality. Well MY reality and intuition was right. I took her on the rail trail and before the end of the hike she laid her back wide open from barb wire. I am pissed to say the least and frustrated. People can say what they want but I know my dog and I know what can happen. I have worked with vets too many years not to know the reality of what CAN and DOES happen.

We are doctoring it and I am saying “see I told you so!!!”

So the hunt for acceptable running places continues…..

I did find a great spot in the heart of Park City. It is a Mountain stream full of wildflowers and safety. Unfortunately Rainy gets bored easily. Owning a rambunctious Weimaraner is not easy or for the faint of heart.

  1. Poor Rainy. I’m the same misadventurer, currently we have only one meadow for walks, but there are a gazillion of wild blackberries. I had a paw-surgery (3 thorns) and an ear-repair (4 thorns). I hope you are well soon, dear Rainy!

  2. Thank you dear Easy….I sure wish you guys were more careful….takes ten years off my life every time something happens
