Monday’s are a day of choice for hiding–but usually, it is not an option. Our Weims express our deepest feelings and give us looks that say it all. Maybe they are not the breed for everyone, but for some –nothing else will do.
Crops are growing before our eyes. The corn looks spectacular this year — the dark green color is quite lovely.
The near 100 degree temperatures continue to plague us–summer heat for June is record-setting news. I am expecting a big storm soon.
The last couple of weeks have been intense–with Winnie’s litter exit. People ask if it is difficult to let the pups go, but parThe last couple of weeks have been intense–with Winnie’s litter exit. People ask if it is difficult to let the pups go, but part of our method is to prepare them to bond with their families. Even though we set the puppies up to leave, it always amazes us to see how quickly they take to their new families.
Wilma is preparing to leave sometime in July–she has found a Golden Year Placement. She loves to nestle on the dog bed located under my desk. She is an easy keeper as Weims go.

On a very personal note
Cliff is still working on our bath–I am hoping for serious progress, but he didn’t get much done last week with us on the road.
Bradley’s last game was Friday night at Nyssa–he seemed inspired with more than twenty points, blocks, rebounds, and assists. We couldn’t keep count of all he did. They didn’t win a single game which is disheartening, but it is what it is, and when it happens, you have to make the best of a bad situation.
I have another Thoracentesis scheduled for early July. I am not sure if I can win this battle or end up with a catheter. Nonetheless, I tell people I am a walking miracle. Some days are better than others, but no one would guess that I have Stage IV Cancer by looking at me.
The garden is finally catching up–flowers are blooming, and veggies are thriving. There are several small zucchini I want to get picked.

We didn’t go last year (pandemic) and maybe even not the year before….but—when Maizie’s paws hit the sand today, it all came back! She knew just what to do! She’s a puppy again‼️ (At age 9 years, 3 months)!
I live vicariously through your Weimaraner–all these trips to the beach fill me with envy. (Haha) Maizie and her parents were at the beach at the end of last month. I love this so much.
Hello, we are having one of those weeks that keeps me going from one thing to the next.
I have a couple of blog posts that I can get ready for the coming week. While I am away, I want to remind people to take care of themselves and their pets during this heatwave.
Sometimes we get lucky and capture photos like these. Yesterday was such a day. So–if today you needed a smile, I hope this brings one to your face.
In Honor of Her and all she did
Yesterday, we received sad news regarding JuneAnn–you probably remember her and Porsche.
We write to you with sad news: JuneAnn passed away May 28th from an
extremely aggressive bone cancer. She had been under the weather for a
few weeks and was hospitalized May 19th at McKenzie Willamette. After
pulling in every specialist from every department, they were able to
diagnose her the afternoon of May 26th. She spent her last days out of pain and at peace in hospice.
JuneAnn was a bright spot in many lives–
JuneAnn wrote me frequently–we loved her frequent contributions to our blog. She and Porsche earned a Service Dog status–no small thing. And Porsche was her constant companion. There are several posts to explore should you desire to review them–you can search the blog using her service dog’s name or check out Mesquite X Stackhouse. The latter option will give you all her littermates.

We thought you might enjoy these various captures taken right after the whelp and on Day One.
The first cutting of hay is happening all around us–they will be here next week to cut ours. We don’t expect our tonnage to be anywhere close to the average amount. Cliff is considering pulling the large field this fall– planting winter wheat.
Farther east (across the railroad tracks), the field was lying neatly in beautiful rows until the evening wind picked it up, throwing it south. The view at times was spectacular–a big circular showing looking to be several feet high. I am sure nothing is hurt, but the neatness is gone. (haha)
With two litters on the ground, we have a lot of hands-on activity. The best was we had three little socializers who helped up on Thursday. I didn’t capture it, but Jackson (who is one year old) was kissing the puppies–there were lots of excited noises. The last time the girls were here, they were so disappointed that we didn’t have any puppies.
We introduced Wilma to the girls–at first, she was reluctant but well-behaved. Then she kept going back to them. It was so cute.

We no longer post a daily blog–instead, we present things (randomly) as the material is available. Thank you! For those wondering, the easiest thing for me to repost is a paragraph with a photo or two. Often the most popular posts are those that share a funny topic–but of course, everyone loves hearing about your Weimaraner. They like to compare it to theirs–for example, these stories that featured Caleb and Thor were both lovely. Young Willow is an excellent example of a Weim’s activity with a funny little story.

On a very personal note
Cliff got the old raised bed moved and the blueberry plants set. We may purchase one more–we have wooden shakes to get up on that side of the greenhouse. It wouldn’t take too long and possibly Christina and I could staple them in place.
Here is a video clip of Bradley making a score–even though Ontario’s team is not very good–Brad is playing well. We are so proud of him for sticking with it despite all the challenges of playing wearing masks. Not winning games–and sometimes getting blown out. In Friday’s game against LaGrande, Brad had at least 20 points, several blocks, and many rebounds.
Of course, I had another Thoracentesis–the right lung drained. It went so much better than the last two times. The Radiology team, lead by PC Cory, made additional adjustments which proved beneficial. I am ever so thankful. I had an emergency dental visit–and I am also grateful to Payette Valley Family for working me in on Friday. They (and Dr. Reece) were a lifesaver.

And here is her brother Cador — the fur kid on the right
Happy birthday Bea–to you and all your littermates.
