Here is a summary from her mom, Stacy:
Josie… there was never any question as to what our new puppy’s call name would be. But we still had to pick Josie’s registered name so we finally decided on Barrett ‘N Basecamp’s Lady Josephine! Josie was our 3rd Weim to join the family. We flew all the way to Boston to pick Josie up as that is where she was born. Josie is our baby so to speak and she knows it. Josie has done well in the show ring earning her AKC Championship status in just 3 weekends. She has now begun to work on her Grand Championship. The very first show as a Champion, she won SEL and a nice 5 points towards her Grand Championship. Then COVID happened and things were put on hold. Josie can’t wait to get back in the ring but in the meantime, Josie will be doing some hunt tests as she has shown some incredible interest in birds as of late. At home, Josie is the one dog we can leave out of her crate while we eat. She will not beg. She simply curls up on her bed and nooks or naps. Nail time is on Saturday at our house and Josie, again, is the only one that cooperates and doesn’t mind her nails being dremeled. She also doesn’t mind when we bath her. She cooperates with just about everything that is done to her. Josie will even share her nooking stuffies with her sisters but only for a bit. That’s where she draws the line. She is a nooking connoisseur, like no Weim you’ve ever seen. Josie is very affectionate and has become even more so as she’s matured. She loves to come up from behind you and go right between your legs, just sticking her head out as if to say, “here I am and I need some pets!” As in true Weim form, Josie always wants to be close to her humans which usually means on top of her humans.🤣 But we wouldn’t have it any other way. We love you, baby girl!
