|Roxy my blue Weimaraner at Sequoia National Park, California|
This has been a good holiday season. I had a decent plane ride from California to Illinois where I have been able to see friends and family I have not seen in a few months. The hardest part has been leaving my dogs at a kennel. I have not been away from my dogs for more than a week, My wife's dog Diesel has been with her for 5 years and with me for just over 3 and we have had my dog Roxy since she was 6 months old. My wife calls my dog my "Grey Shadow' for good reason, this blue female Weimaraner can not bear to have me out of her sight. She sits shot gun in my truck and does fine off the leash, never wandering too far and healing on command.

A lot of people use Weimaraners as hunting dogs but Roxy makes a good fishing dog, she is happy sitting at my feet while I am casting, sniffing rocks an grass while I curse and pull out wind knots. Roxy is happy whether we get skunked or catch the biggest fish of the year. The girl can draw a crowd, people asking what breed she is and showering her in compliments about her temperament and beauty. With all of this attention she is still humble and loving.
