Weederman is a mix of Cairn Terrier and Chihuahua. He's one year old, healthy as can be and he's brimming with joy!
What's up with the name, you ask? Larry and I enjoyed a comic strip that ran for a long time down in the Bay Area called "Mister Boffo and his Wonder-dog Weederman".
BELOW: Here's a frame from the comic strip - that's Weederman at the top right. He was always there somewhere in the frame, and always seemed to know what was really going on in the cartoon's events and situations. We thought that Weederman was a great name, and that if we ever had a funny little dog that had to be in the action all the time, we'd call him that.
So, he's made himself right at home. And it's been pretty easy so far! He's apparently totally housetrained, and that's a miracle to us, not wanting to assume that any new dog is. Also, he was already neutered so we don't even have to hassle with that! The main thing is that Pepper really loves him. He enlivens her days from the moment we get up to the moment we all go to bed. They play together like two best buddies and Pepper is not jealous of her food or toys. I admit to being a little worried about that, she's a bit of a brat... but she's just delighted with him and I think he's just the perfect little guy for our place here.
They both love to take a sunbath. And they both love to chase and be chased, check around for mice and squirrels, and go for long walks.
Every morning and every evening we have the "Toy Olympics" in the family room. They love to race around on the thick carpet in there and play with all the squeakers and stuffed toys.
Weederman loves to be outside and that's great - we are outside a lot here. He looks very handsome in his new raincoat. We are so glad to have found him and so glad that his former owner selected us from an avalance of phone calls and email responses to her Craigslist posting. She felt that it would be a great fit here, and she was right.
We love you!!!!
