Behavior, Housebreaking, Obedience / My weim is still nursing at two!
« on: December 21, 2005, 03:56:38 pm »
My weim nurses on his stuffed babies!¬  He puts the head into his mouth and sucks away -- he even moves his paws like he is pushing milk out!¬ 

This started the day we brought him home at 7.5 weeks and at the age of 2 he still does it!¬  Before bed, he always has to find a baby and "nurse" for an hour or so.¬  It seems to relax him for sure.¬  Many times he falls asleep with the stuffed animal still in his mouth.

Anyone else have a suckling pup?¬ 

Anyone have any solutions/remedies for poop eating?  My adorable vizsla puppy (7 months) has a nasty habit of snacking on her own poop!  I have tried using ForBid but have not had any luck with it.  I have heard of using meat tenderizer, but am not sure how much I should use.  In the mean time, I have just been cleaning the mess up before she can nibble on it.  Perhaps she will grow out of this phase?  Please Help!   

Weimaraner Discussions & Pictures / Pink Nose Weimaraner!
« on: December 20, 2005, 06:26:52 pm »
Around the age of 6 months, my weimaraner's nose started losing it's color.  His once brown nose turned pink! 

I discussed this matter with several vets, all of whom told me that this sometimes happens with this breed.  I have also heard that this may be a sign of an immune problem.  However, this doesn't seem to be the case.  Titan is a healthy, happy weim who just turned two (see attached picture).  One vet even suggested that I have his nose tattooed!  WHAT!?!  Titan may have a speckled nose, but I love him just the same! 

Just wondering if anyone else has seen pink noses in weims and what causes this loss of pigment.
