~ What’s For Dinner?
One of my assistants is picking up a Weim tomorrow. She is so excited. Tish and Jeff. I try to send you pictures all the time, but I can’t find one that shows how amazing Schatzi is and how much we love her.
She is such a blessing. Thank you for giving us this gift. Why can a Weim not sit like a dog? Probably because they are mostly human. It must be amazing to provide so much love to so many people. She did sit down and have dinner with us tonight. Anyway thanks again.
Jeff and Marisa
Thanks for referring Jeff and Trish–we sincerely hope their puppy brings them years of joy. And most of all, thank you for telling us how much you love Schatzi–this Weim is living the life.
Bo’s Nose Work
~Something Altogether Different
When doesn’t our Weimaraner make us laugh? Well, the answer is simple–when they reduce us to tears. (OMG) But thankfully for us Weimar-Addicts, there are more laughable moments than not. What others would consider insane, we find entertaining, enchanting, and hilarious. I guess that speaks volumes about us.
No, Bo didn’t snag a snack–eat the pie or whatnot. This time, he left the evidence of a whipped cream treat on his nose. It is too cute not to share. I hope you agree.
~Making her way into our heart and home
Skye is doing great. Shadow and Skye bonded immediately. It is amazing how much easier a puppy is when they have another dog to learn from and be a companion. Robert loves her. They (Shadow and Skye) started to sleep together the first night by their choice. Fun to see.
She will see the vet on Wednesday. I go to the Dog and Cat Wellness Center in Weiser.
We are thrilled to hear that Robert was delighted–even more thrilled to hear that Shadow and Skye were quick to bond. This doesn’t always happen–it is extraordinary. I assure you that several who read our blog are envious.
~In Florida with us
I see updated and thought I would share one about our girl. We recently left Nevada and now she’s enjoying the Florida weather. She catches the lizards that enter the pool area and thinks she owns the vet office! We love her and she’s doing great!
It is fabulous to hear that Ohren is doing so well. Thanks for keeping us apprised, and for letting us know that you now reside in Florida.
Rain or Snow
~Ready to Go!
Walk or run–we usually do about 2 miles walking and up to 4 ish running. They love getting out although want to chase squirrels . This is usually in addition to the dog park. They have two different cold weather jackets and then their rain jackets. And yes, we try to get out every day otherwise the house becomes a race track/ jungle gym, lol!
This is our coats for cold with a chance of rain and we always wear the glow in the dark collars.
We are so happy the boys love helping you stay exercised. We get it–you do it for your sanity more than your health. (Haha) We love their glow in the dark collars. It is essential when you are out for the early or late runs.
It took about 6 tosses and Ruger going in before he’d go beyond chest deep.
He’s been introduced to and been in the water all spring, just nothing swimmable until today…. Annnnnd here are a couple more just goofy Weimie pics.
Jaeger is about four months old. We feel this is exceptional. He didn’t swim at OwyheeStar before leaving–it was too cold. Jaeger was born in mid-October of 2017. Cliff is dually impressed that he is swimming and water retrieving. We appreciate the video capture of the moment as well as these great photos. Thank you!
~ Knows Her Place
The only tough thing about a Weim is you don’t own the couch anymore….they do!!!
You might remember this little girl earlier this year during our resolution-making season. Click here to see her then, and to read more about her and the sofa. You might also like to know that she is a sister to Luke and Bo–featured yesterday. We hear that Schatzi and the two blue boys are planning a play date sometime in the future.
The couch is shared in most every household despite efforts to prevent this from happening. Some do, but most don’t even attempt it. You might remember that Weimar rule list that used to be prevalent. It would start off where the Weimar is not going to come into the house. (Oops–then we are not placing a pup with you.) Then, it would quickly follow up, with–alright the Weimar is allowed in the house, but only by the back door. And this would go on and on, and pretty soon the Weim owned the house and was running things. (Ha!) We tend to share almost everything with our Weimaraners. Don’t you agree?
So, the sofa is in use. Well, if the human arrives first, they are welcome to be used as a pillow. Otherwise, you might have to try to squeeze in somewhere or opt for the recliner.
Bo and Luke
Not For Everyone!
~Two At Once
As I sit down to write this Bo (red harness) is figuring out how to sit in my lap ( he barely fits anymore) and Luke (gray harness)is finishing up his laps around the house. I LOVE them, even when they are driving me crazy, I love them! They are so different and so funny and have adapted so well to my life/ our life. Sometimes when I think that I am not sure how I am going to make this work they remind me that they are only 5 months old and incredible!
They still jump some although it is getting better and everyone is always impressed by them and how well they behave. Not to mention they are stunning! Everywhere I go, every time I am at the dog park, it is non stop they are beautiful, lovely, stunning pups. Luke is like silk he definitely got some of Bettee’s coat and Bo is SO athletic!
I did buy them a house with a yard 🙂 We move in about two weeks, they will get their own yard and we will have chickens and be very close to the dog park. They have definitely helped me keep my sanity, lose my sanity and remind me what is important in my life and important to me.A million times a day I am in awe at how silly and adorable they are. They make me smile all the time and bring me such joy! They are privileged pups and don’t spend much time in their crates anymore.
Getting two Weimaraner pups at the same time is rarely a good idea. Nevertheless, a few people convince me they can do this thing. Honestly, we were a bit concerned when her life suddenly changed right after they arrived–she pulled it off with style. Not everyone could do that. Those of you challenged by one can only imagine the dynamics of two. Getting them both trained and compliant is just for the strong of heart.
Yes. These two were very different. We think that is a good thing, too! Thanks Erika for the update and all you are doing with and for the boys. And, maybe you didn’t notice, but the sire of the litter was ‘Boone‘.
Just when you think you have seen it all, along comes something well, not new per say, but unexpected.
Jaeger (pictured at five-weeks here to the left) doesn’t have young photos of him sticking out his tongue. We all know; however, I have shown you some of my favorite such pictures with the same gesture. Who doesn’t laugh?
Not long ago, he was using the Cat Tree–as well as doing some field training. You have to admit he is entertaining. Oh, and pretty darned cute. However, did you get such a snapshot of Jaeger?
Taking It Too Far?!?
~ Ed Writes
Jaeger is sticking his tongue out at me, I know he can be stubborn, but this is taking it too far lol.
The Balanced Weimar
He also ended up standing totally on that bota with all four feet.
You no doubt remember our opportunistic Cat Tree Sitting Weimar. This happened not so long ago on the homefront; however, Jaeger is busy working on his field training too!
The Savvy Weimaraner
~Trainable Natual Ability is a Plus!
We went out to get some fieldwork/playing. Came across a huge chest-deep puddle from the recent melt off. Jaeger followed Ruger in without a pause. Considering that water was cold and he went right in, I’m hoping for good things come spring and summer.
Ruger also pointed some quail, Jaeger pointed Ruger… instinct is such an amazing thing. He is doing great, smart and stubborn (lol), they go hand in hand.
You might remember that our Ruger was not too thrilled with Jaeger, but he tolerated him. Well, Ruger has broke down and finally realized MAYBE Jaeger isn’t always an annoyance. At times, they will play. It is fun to watch the process.
