We got to puppy sit this weekend.
Meet at the time nameless puppy:
She's a Georgian Bay Sporting Dog, the breeder's name for a 75% Weimaraner, 25% Lab mix.
It's my brother's dog and well, due to some scheduling mix ups, she was picked up Saturday morning which happened to be the same day as a wedding he had to attend, so we got to watch the 8 week old cutey for most of the day.
This is my kind of dog time--borrow, but not keep. I love dogs, but my current life doesn't fit with raising a puppy so we're happy to be dog borrowers for now.
I was expecting a lot of homesickness and puppy craziness but this little one mostly slept. It was a long trip for her and she was just happy to cuddle and sleep.
She did play for about an hour and she's clearly an outside dog (she never spent anytime indoors since birth). The funniest thing was when you put her on a floor, she freezes. She has no idea how to walk on it and I suspect she associates it with the vet. With the help of a toy, I did get her to take a few steps on the hardwood and do some exploring, but once she found her towel she laid down and did more sleeping.
So cute. I'm excited for her next visit. And her name is Ruby. We nicknamed her Ute for the day, but my brother didn't like the name.
