2017 28th Saturday Recap
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~July 22, 2017
The farmers are busy harvesting some crops and watering others. Our local farm stand is filling up with local produce. The corn we bought was scrumptious as always. They had fresh potatoes, corn, onions, zucchini, cucumbers, green beans, tomatoes, berries, and more. Oh, don’t forget the fresh farm eggs. The Treasure Valley lives up to the name.
We will be busy with puppies. Summer will be what we hoped for this Spring. Availability for Blues and even Silver or Gray Males will be excellent between now and winter. The Wait List is jam packed with those waiting for a Gray or Silver Female. No, this is not particularly typical. Sometimes we have a lot of folks waiting for a male–many prefer them. Other times we have many waiting for a Blue–in recent years though getting them has been less of a problem. At one time we had people waiting a year or longer. It all depends upon what we have born and the influx of people and their preferences.

There is no one product that works for every situation. Trainers each have their preferences. Certain Weimaraners will respond more to a particular approach. Regardless, we have known countless people who have struggled to get loose leash compliance succeed using this type of collar. Understanding how it works and getting the desired outcome takes a bit of knack, but when used correctly, this tool can be your best friend. We cannot emphasize how important achieving the loose leash compliance is on so many levels. Relying on head halters, front-hooking leashes, and pinch collars can seem like a Godsend; however, they can actually fuel the desire to pull. When used correctly, this collar can lead to compliance on a regular flat collar which is the ideal outcome. The folks at Chewy asked us to review this collar for them, and we were happy to do. We hope someone out there finds this helpful.
On a very personal note
The Cyclamen watch continues. .There is at least one bud lifting its head. I cannot wait until it blooms.
The heat has been taking its toll on Cliff. I have issues with it and have had for years. Since the cancer treatment, there are additional things that make the heat bad for me–and we are talking 80 degrees and up.
We had friends visit this week. It had been a long time since we saw them. What a wonderful gift to have them stop in to see us.
I had a better week than any for the last ten months. Nevertheless, I may have overdone things a bit. Cliff and picked a few plums from our son’s tree. It is amazing how many jars we got with not all that much fruit. We have some juice for the future, plum sauce, Plum-Apple Syrup, and Plum-Berry Syrup. There are 35 jars. Now, we need to live 30 years because we have enough plum product to cover us. (Tee Hee)
