Brews and Barks

Yesterday at the base of Silver Mountain Resort here in Kellogg (Idaho) they had a “brews and barks” event. It was a fund raiser for H.E.L.P. which is an organization that helps animals. They had a bunch of microbrew beers too for the adult furparents 🙂 it was amazing.

Winchester Only

Chester went to Barks and Brews, and I stayed home to take snooze... :O)

Chester got to go. Pokey had to stay home, she gets much too nervous to have been around that many people and pets. We missed her, but I know she was happier and safer at home!

New Friends for Winchester

Winchester made so many friends! A little Boston Terrier, a Boxer. Attention from SO many people who wanted to know what breed he was. (Aren’t Weimaraners really light and grey usually) so I explained all about blues. How he’s still AKC registered even though they don’t recognize his colors. And how blues are looked down on and thought to have more health problems and not that great of temperaments. Which Chester surely showed them is not true!

Winchester Impressed Everyone He Met

They told me he is the most beautiful weim they’ve ever seen. I was thinking “if only you could see my two lookers together!” I also wrote down your guys’ website on napkins more than I can count. Will probably be bringing business cards to doggy events from now on! 🙂

I signed my little boy up for “best tail wag contest” and out of about 15 dogs Chester was the only one who had a nub tail! Numerous people said to me “he doesnt have a tail!” People hating on his little nubbin! He ended up placing third! YAYYY Chester! He got a bag of treats, a toy, and a medal! I took pictures of him, he was so proud!!

Things are great here in Kellogg.

Summer has come around, and we’ve been taking full advantage. Pokey absolutely adores sun bathing! Hope everything down there is well, hugs and puppy kisses from Jamie, Pokey and Winchester!225542_10150188866733903_503123902_6910590_3521796_n

Breeder’s Note: The American Standard for the traditional adult Weimaraner calls for about a six inch tail. Winchester has a nice tail. In Europe, the Weimaraner has undocked tails across the board. Around the world, the breed standard for the longhair is the undocked tail.

  1. Congratualations Chester! I agree, all people should see Chester and Pokey together – that would be the ultimate eyecatcher.

  2. True, but not all people at once. She doesn’t like crowds. Sooooo Maybe they should do lots of small outings. :O)

  3. They could start next weekend with me with the small outing. I’m not afraid for the 1200+ dogs but for the 200+ kitties :o)
