Snow Angels

The Northeast was hit with it's first major snowstorm of the season on December 14th.  As usual, when we have big things planned, the weather does not always cooperate.  Savi was supposed to get dropped off at her brother, Memphis' house, and it was iffy if we would be able to make the hour drive north in what was predicted to be a terrible snow storm with accumulations of 8-12 inches!
 I decided to leave early in the morning to beat the main part of the storm and with the 4-wheel drive SUV, we carefully made the drive to Putnam County, a gorgeous community an hour and half north of New York city on the Connecticut border.  I arrived and immediately showed Savi the property lines (orange flags) for the Invisible Fence and then it was playtime with her littermate, Memphis.  They played and played.....
 and played....
 and Savi even flew!
 Even though they are from the same litter, Memphis is a big boy and Savi is a little girl.  Both have lovely lines with impressive chests and know how to move!  Savi may be small but is faster and more agile than her brother.  We trained both pups together from the time they were 8 weeks old so they get along really well and are obedient.

 Playing in the snow is exhausting...time for a nap with the kids...

Savi is on vacation for a few weeks as we are busy with Jam's litter of seven puppies.  Memphis' family adores her and Savi fits right in as if she grew up in their house.  She especially loves the little kids and does not let them out of her sight.  This is a nice warm-up for Memphis' family to get used to having two Weims as one of our Wonder pups will be going home with them the end of January. Thanks to Meridith for these awesome shots and taking such great care of our girl.
