More than a bath
Thank you, for always thinking of us Cal. We appreciate the extra effort you put into these updates. We are tickled pink your two boys are well-adjusted, happy, and thriving.
Just wanted to share some pics from Milly’s first hunts as requested. Her first hunt was at a release sight, and she did fantastic. Pointed a few, didn’t range too far and listened well. She had her first wild bird hunt this weekend and did amazing. Pointed several birds, worked methodically, and most importantly had a blast.
Chris and two others hunted behind her and both couldn’t believe how well she performed, especially for being so young. Chris and his hunting companions are looking forward to many more hunts behind this extremely birdy girl! 😊
We are happy to get this update with the photos. Thank you, ever so much for taking the time and effort to record her first hunt. You are off to a fabulous start. We could not be happier. Go, Milly!
Maybe you noticed Nancy’s post regarding Luna and Tikka’s clever pie snatching –or maybe I should say sampling trick. It is too good to not borrow, so I asked Nancy for her permission. (Haha) It seemed like a good Sunday post.
Nancy writes, “When I got back in my truck and checked the pie (that I had hidden under the blanket) “Oh good, the lid’s still on!” “Good girls!” … Upon closer examination, I realize that they weren’t good girls, just clever girls for somehow getting the lid back in place!”
What To Do?
“Here’s what you do with pumpkin pie that the Weims have sampled.”
Well, Nancy, this is perfect example of so many things Weimar related.
- How the Weimaraner can find a way, to get their way.
- How on the surface things look okay until you find it is not.
- How the experienced Weim-person figures a way to make something positive out of what is left. (Haha)
I seriously expect that Tikka and Luna had the pie leftovers. So things worked out for them. I think it is amazing they didn’t eat the whole pie.
~Birds are Great
First time out hunting with Macy today she did great. She was a little slow at the start but picked it up and had a great day. Very proud Poppa. Thank you so much.
Yes, Indeed, I still have to share her with my son. They are still the best of friends–which is a good thing. She is very well behaved outside can’t say the same for the inside. She loves the food that she thinks we leave for her on the counter.
We are happy to hear that Macy is in the field successfully. We love to get hunt testimonials. Bernie is an excellent hunter. Boone comes from solid working hunt lines–but he has not had as many opportunities to hunt as Bernie. The offspring have proven to be excellent hunting companions. Thanks for remembering us, Don.
We also appreciate your loyalty. It has been a long time as well as a long distance relationship. Of course, the fact that you had to fly to the West Coast and somehow this all converged was outstanding.
At 6.5 Months
Just wanted to send you a quick update on Milly (Bernie and Boone 18 litter). She is 6.5 months old now, wow where did time go? She is such a joy and we fall more in love with her every day. She is in level 4 (out of 4) in obedience training on her way to getting her canine good citizenship certificate. She does so well in class and we are working hard to enforce all her commands into everyday life. She is still growing like a weed and I believe is now around 45lbs. We love this spunky, smart, cuddly girl so much! Here are some recent photos!
(Milly and her Weim “cousin” Sky are best of friends)
(She is learning to enjoy playing in the rain, she’s a Seattle girl after all! This has taken much coercion but she’s getting used to it)
(Sometimes she thinks she is a cat! Notice her blanket which is spread out that she chose to ignore)
(She has daddy wrapped around her finger)Thanks again for a wonderful pup!Deanna
Sorry Pops, we need both rafts cause Coopers getting bigger, you can sit on the steps….
Never a dull moment. The addition of Coop has sparked new interest in Luke and our lives. We are gearing up for many new adventures as we navigate selling our home, moving to an apartment a few blocks away and then transitioning to our place in the desert eventually to retire. Our boys have proven time and time again just how versatile they can be and remind us that we should be too and to not take things so seriously.
The boys focus on the fetch regardless of sirens, fireworks wind and waves…
We had the gray ghost, the blue, then there were long hairs ,,, what that a polka dot Weim?
These guys are getting comfortable sharing whatever they are dealt,,,
They will take whatever they are given,,,, guess I sleep at the foot of the bed
As always Shela I hope you and Cliff are doing well. We so appreciate the care and kindness you 2 put into everything you do for these adorable creatures and those whom you guide through the rearing process.
Love and Light ~ Cal
We so appreciate the update with all the photos, etc. Thank you, for the exceptionally kind words and endorsement. Of course, we have known each other for a very long time–all due to our Weimaraner connection. Who knew this would become a thing? And, indeed it is as well as being entirely life-changing. We would have never guessed. We are glad the whole experience blesses you.
Rocks the Dog Park
~Sleepy Boy Afterward
Winchester is 16 weeks old and he is so happy and playful. For today’s adventure, we took him on his first trip to the dog park. Winchester loved all the new smells and running free. He was very well behaved the whole time. He was so sleepy when he got home then it was time for cuddles. Brandon and I love having this sweet boy he is truly a blessing.
Thank you, we truly appreciate this little note concerning Winchester (AKA Chester). The fact that he brings you joy is evident. We love seeing all your posts celebrating the moments as well as the achievements. Keep up the great work.
