Portland Pet Expo

Maizie Attracts Attention

LaBash's Maize-5909_nWe just left this expo in Portland and met an Owyheestar family.  They were attracted by Maizie and came over to meet her.  Their Weim is Maggie, and she is 11 years old.  I have their last name for you; but I will say that they live in Gresham, OR.  Three other of Maggie’s littermates live near them, and they all grew up playing together.  They told us they would like another Weim!  They stopped reading the Blog, but will start up again after talking to us–and hearing about the Weim play day in Salem last weekend!

We cannot thank our loyal clients enough. Thank you Maizie for being an amazing ambassador. There are those that remember us from day one throughout the life of their Weimar. There are others which fade into the background. They are not bad Weim parents–often they are extraordinary. For some reason, they don’t care to update us or to stay in the loop.

Getting Another OwyheeStar 

Another thing that frequently happens is someone who wants an OwyheeStar pup waits too long to get on the Waiting List. We suggest doing so six months in advance (at least); eight months would even be better. It ‘s hard to explain the juggling act we face. As we often write–we cannot know if there will be a litter born when we mate a pair. We cannot guess (even if we get the litter) at the number of pups, their sex, and sometimes the coat color. In some cases, where we mate a Longhair with a Longhair Carrier, we also will not know how many smooth coats versus how many longhairs will be in the litter. There are projections; however, over the years, we have learned the same pair might produce two longhairs in a litter of eight pups one year and the next we got six longhairs. Statistically, we are expecting a 50% ratio–which would have been four. Over the two years, we got the average of four. In other instances, it took a decade to meet the average. The truth is variables can make it impossible to know how long it will take to get your puppy. This information doesn’t even address the people already on the Waiting List for a puppy–their criteria factors into the equation too!

An Example

The Mousse X Stackhouse litter that was born two weeks ago Monday is a good example of what might happen. There were six males and three females. It is safe to say that more people who were wanting a male were happy than those wanting a female.

  1. it’s great to meet people and weims of the same “family” … I wish some of easy’s littermates would live closer, so he had some playmates that way (what not always works, one of his sisters hates him like the plague lol)

  2. Wow! What a beautiful Weim featured on the cover of today’s blog story!!! 😉❤️🐾

  3. Neither of us is biased either.

  4. What color is Maizie?

  5. Maize is Gray — in the sunlight she might be silver-gray. That photo shows her as a gray. Please keep in mind that the Weimaraner coat reflects the color in the room. Regardless of the coat color, she is a beautiful and stunning Weimaraner.

  6. Ty she is sooooo beautiful
