if money bought happiness...

It would look like Duke, our new pup. Here he is at five weeks old. We are picking him up at the airport in Edmonton next Tuesday... he's a weimeraner. He has silver fur and blue eyes. You can see more of the recent photos of him here.

And hey, did anyone see Feist on Letterman last night? We are addicted to her around here. Buddy will see her at VirginFest in Toronto next week, along with The Killers, Tokyo Police Club (got mentioned on Gilmore Girls tonight) and the Smashing Pumpkins. More than anything, he's completely gaga over Bjork, swan-wearing Icelandic songstress and apparently, my future daughter-in-law... huh?

Hey there! SO happy to hear that your puppy is on its way. Is it a weimaraner or a weimaraner lab cross? Our Weim, Oliver, just celebrated his 2nd birthday yesterday and heads up...he was wwwaaayyy easier to handle when he was 8 weeks than he is now!

Well, the breeder had pure weims and weim-lab crosses, so we ordered a cross. After we picked our pup, he contacted us and said, "you know, he's pretty much all weimeraner... did you know that?" and of course, we are still taking him... he would never be registered anyway, we were expecting a cross... we just have no idea how "lab" he is.

I believe the whole thing will be like having another child.

You are very right to prepare yourself that way...it is like having another child. In fact, J and I counted, when we got Ollie, we went 52 consecutive nights with being interrupted several times! Definitely prepare yourself for several walks per day, mischief around every corner and to be challenged in everyway!!! Weims are VERY smart dogs (they rank top 20 in the intelligence of dogs scale), so our advice would be to get Duke into as many 'classes' as possible a.s.a.p to challenge him. Most dog clubs will take 12 week old puppies for their beginner obedience! Good Luck...email or blog anytime!
