What It’s Like Running With A Weimaraner

Remy and I are running up “the big hill.”

I consider myself fit, this mountain says otherwise.

My quads struggle to lift me, my mouth’s wide open, I’m stomping around. My face, a tomato. Half way up. Almost there …

My weimaraner?

He pitter-patters. A ghost just ahead. Not panting. Mouth closed. It’s like he has no need for oxygen. The weight of a feather.

I think he’s tip-toeing!

At the top, he’s zig-zagging, tracking, peeing on things.

I’m standing there, amazed my heart can beat so hard.

And I’m certain my dog didn’t notice the climb.

Didn’t even notice.

Wow Remy, you really are hard to tire out! Reminds me of a friend's Aussie - he has endless energy too, and can still go after a full day of hiking, swimming, running, and agility! It's insane!!

Oh Remy. The last dog I had with that kind of energy was a Guide Dog puppy named Journey. He bounced around like a bucking bronco!

My experience of running is with german shepherds who I walk and run with daily in the morning and evening. But weimaraners too seem to be bursting with energy.
