Zig had a fun home visit with some friends last Sunday. Besides being a bit of a space cadet, I think he had a good time and could easily get used to having a human boy to play with and horse poo to eat everyday :) Thanks Melissa and Brian, for giving him a chance!

    Not an uncommon sight.

Because I'll miss him IF he ever gets adopted...

Freaking Awesome Dog Portrait "Arteest"

Don't tell the Weims, but I entered Zig in a contest. YES, I chose his photo to enter over all the thousands of adorable Weim ones I have, and YES I chose a GSP over my beloved Weims... but, what can I say? He's a hunky monkey and if he wins, and if he gets adopted, I'll have a nice reminder of him hanging on my wall- cause lord knows I'll miss the goober.  With that said, you should enter the contest, too! Here's the link to her facebook page...

Wish us luck!

Poor Zig dude. Just found out he has Lyme disease. I can't say I'm really all that surprised considering the condition he was in the first time I had him... He's started his first round of doxy and then we'll go from there.

It's time my dogs and fosters went to work. In an effort to keep up with my obsession with fostering Weims and Zig, the GSP, I'm offering up some of my favorite photographs of the individuals that make up my current "gang." Most of the photos are marked to cost the equivalent of a bag or two of dog food. All monies made go directly to the mouths of the fosters, or to their vet bills.
Check back often for new photos and options. Don't see a photo that you've enjoyed in the past? Let me know and I'll see what I can do!

Dear Fosterlady: 
Don't I look pathetic tied to the front of this guys truck? I really, really think it's unfair to make me wait around like this while you work the other dogs in the field. I want my birds now! The only thing I get to enjoy from here is that sweet sound of gunfire.
  If you make me do this again, I'm turning you into the dog warden.


PS- See... my new buddy Ollie gets to run around... Being taught patience sucks.
Love, Zig.

I don't say this about many dogs, but Zig unquestionably LIVES for birds. He had a blast training this weekend and showed his enthusiasm by forgetting that he is a POINTING dog and not a "screaming, throwing yourself at the bird" dog...

Home Visit.










Zig here. I know, I know...  the words "HOME VISIT" can mean a lot to a dog in my situation. But, the home visit wasn't for me. I did go along though! I tried to get these people to want to adopt ME instead of a greydog. They almost fell for it! The family has a kickass yard, a CAT, an apple tree, and a 4 month old GSP girl that was fun to run and play with. 
Sounds like HEAVEN, right?
