Hi all!! This will be my very first post! I love the support from this group. You all are amazing! I will try to be brief and not too long winded. I have quite a few general questions. To better understand my questions you must first understand that before owning our current 4 month old Dobie puppy we owned a couple Weimaraners. With that said, I will politely say they were NOT the breed for me! Wow!! After that experience I was very gunshy to ever own another dog. Well, now years later we have 4 kids and they begggggggged for a dog! I knew what I wanted after all my research! Ok..now for questions. I have a female born 9/11/11, she is 27 lbs looks healthy, shiny coat, very playful all the good stuff. Her dad was 90lbs and mom was 75-80lbs. Can't figure out why she is so petite but oh well. She is so laid back that I am amazed! My kids climb all over her and do all the annoying things kids do and she could care less. NEVER ANY signs of aggression! She naps quite often and is perfectly content just lying so pretty on her puppy pillow. She is not really that hyper outside of normal puppy play. Is this normal? As I type this she is chewing and wrestling with her squeeky toys. Too cute to watch a puppy act like my 9 month old I figured I was signing up for 2 yrs of typical off the wall puppy. She doesn't eat her food like it's her last meal. She takes her time and nibbles throughout the entire day. She looooooves to lay down and take a nap with us. She is not a barker, again outside of normal puppy play, and she walks on a leash almost perfectly!!! Is she just buttering me up for the day we wake up and she says "GOTCHA!!!!" Now, I'm going to show you my true side... Just kidding. I can't believe how awesome she is!!!! Is all this normal for the breed or did I just really luck up? Also, we are crate training her but last night I let her sleep next to our bed on her pillow and she didn't move the whole night!!! WHAT!!???!! Totally not what I was expecting. Any responses are appreciated. Thanks!
