I have been so remiss in keeping up with my blogs but as I slowly get settled into my new life and get unpack we have managed to enjoy Christmas and all that goes with it along the way. One of Rainy’s favorite things to do is hike. In fact, my daughter one day said to me “Rainy is just so even tempered…almost like she has no personality….does she ever get excited about anything?” I demonstrated by singing “You want to go hiking” to the tune of “I’m a girl watcher” and my daughter had to stand back as the elated body spasms began knocking things over as she ran to get one of her babies from her toy box to take with her. Rainy has tons and tons of crazy personality and she wears her heart on her sleeve but she is a Weimaraner which means there is a time and place for all things.
I just wanted to share some photos of her hiking through the snow on the golf course here….we figured the golfers wouldn’t mind. She still doesn’t have the stamina she had before her ordeal but she gets stronger and more energetic ever day. She has healed as if nothing ever happened and I feel so blessed to have her in our lives.
On the other end of the spectrum I have never seen a dog enjoy a good nap more than Rainy in my life. She hikes with gusto and sleeps with just as much enthusiasm. In fact she is NOT a MORNING person and was a little put out that we all got up so early and invaded her space as we opened our presents. For days she had been checking out her stocking, fixating on it really, as she scented the delicious aromas of pig ears and giant organic cookies. But Christmas morning I laid it all out for her and she looked at me like I just grew a set of horns….she could not believe we were so rude as to bother her before she was ready to face her day.
In fact because we got her up too early she (and I ) needed a nice nap which we enjoyed immensely together later in the day. It was a wonderful Christmas finally being home among friends and enjoying all the things we like to do. The snow was a welcomed sight as the area has been dealing with a drought and who doesn’t like a White Christmas?
Rainy wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and recommends getting lots of rest and hikes in for the coming New Year!!!
