Skye

~Making her way into our heart and home

Shadow makes room for Skye

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.

Our Girl

~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.

Cheers, Erika

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.

Water, Again

Jaeger’s 1st

     ~water retrieve.

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.

Breeder Comment

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!

 

Weimar Life

Schatzi

     ~ Knows Her Place

Grim's Schatzi_0418

The only tough thing about a Weim is you don’t own the couch anymore….they do!!!

Breeder Comment

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!

We Moved!

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.

Cheers, Erika

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‘.

Jaeger

Breeder Comment

1-Bettee X Boone Week Five-16 1Just 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?!?

FB_IMG_1517371994631Jaeger is sticking his tongue out at me, I know he can be stubborn,  but this is taking it too far lol.

The Balanced Weimar

FB_IMG_1517372030987He also ended up standing totally on that bota with all four feet.

Training

Breeder Comment

Gardener's Jaeger Early 2018You 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.

Cat Tree Find

Gardener's Jaeger Early 2018

Ed writes, “Cat tree… not just for cats.”

The Weimaraner is odd some say. I guess it depends on your perspective. Most Weim-addicts would say that they are entertaining. Of course, the definition of what makes us laugh is open to interpretation.

Walking in and finding your pup has taken up residence in the Cat Tree is something you don’t see every day. What does that cute face say?

I think it speaks of opportunity, and why not anyhow? Jaeger fits and seems to enjoy being caught on camera doing the funny Weim antic. Yes, we agree. It is so darned cute you wish they could stay that size, right?

Help in the Kitchen

Dishwasher 

Parmenter 005

Yesterday we learned about Ohren’s help in the kitchen–you remember the photo of her helping pre-wash the dishes, right? If not-this her pictured above.

Grim_0212Her sister in Portland (Schatzi) also is a whiz at helping with the dishes. Jeff writes–

The kids are excited to have another dishwasher in the house!!  Plus she slept through the night last night so that is a bonus with no pee in the crate.  We are rolling now!!

Breeder Comment

Well now, isn’t that amazing? Both pups are interested in helping with the dishes. The Weimaraner seems to have a knack for cleaning plates. It is best when dinner has been served rather than when they do it before you eat the meal.
