Weim lives matter!

Today Tonka made a return visit to the vet for a booster shot that he needed.

While we waited in the exam room for the vet to come in I played with Tonka with his tug toy.  We weren't playing particularly hard, but all of a sudden he started to make odd motions with his mouth, like he was biting on something or something was stuck in his mouth.  I know he's always picking something up, so I started to search his mouth to find what he had this time, but could find nothing.  He continued with the strange movements of his mouth and so I looked again and this time found a tooth!  He lost one of his baby teeth!  This was a first for me, since I've not had a baby dog for over 25 years!

Once again Tonka showed no fears of any of the people he met or the procedures he was put through during his exam.  He was very fidgety, as any puppy would be, but his reactions to being restrained to have his ears checked and the shot given were as normal as could be expected of a young dog.

Tonka received a clean bill of health and he had gained another 3 plus pounds since his previous visit just a week before.  This pup is thriving and growing and it's time for him to find his new home.

Tonka made me very proud at the end of the visit when he showed just how far he has come in his training.  The vet had a treat to give him and she told him to sit.  Yes, he sat, took the treat and sat while he calmly chewed the treat.  Then he did a repeat performance for a second treat.  What a good boy he is.

Watch the Tri-State Weimaraner Rescue website if you or someone you know is interested in adopting him as I think he'll be listed for adoption in the next few days!  Hope he finds a great home!
