Tobryn and Tallyn

We Are Seeing Growth on Every Level!

August 13th — 

Seeing Tallyn when we go to bed and every morning (at 5a or earlier….ugh), I swear he has grown overnite.  He’s basically “potty trained”.  Has already learned to squeeze open the patio door to go outside to do his business.  Is loving the garden and it is amazing to watch his brain take everything in.  We still have eagles that fly around here looking for rabbits so am vigilante when he is outside.  I figure a couple more weeks and he will be big enough so an eagle won’t try and take him.  Well all for now.  Cooler here but still in the lower 80’s but the humidity has been so high that it makes it hard to stay outside for longer periods of time.  But this, too, shall pass.

August 15th  

  20160814_152459Since I’ve had Tobryn, he has slept under the covers with me and somewhere we are always touching.  Since Tallyn arrived, Tobryn has been on strike and slept in his recliner at least half the night.  Last night, Sunday, Tobryn jumped into bed and nuzzled himself under the covers and Tallyn somewhere on top of the covers in the bed and everyone slept the entire night, well.  No growling, no jumping out of bed.  Just beautiful sleep.  I know they will have their “tiffs”, but they are in full bonding mode now.  How happy that makes us all.  Thanks Shela and Cliff.

Weim Crazy

Mo and Cindy

Our Mo-2

Our Mo — What a Boy!

Quick update on Mo and Cindy (AKA Cindee) before getting to the crazy part.  Mo is, by far, the most personality-filled Weim we’ve ever had.  He’s a complete goofball but is doing well with training. He is already crate trained; however, these days he sometimes needs a bit of extra motivation to kennel up at night or during meal times.

He’s getting the loose lead back down again as he decided to completely forget that the lead means that I decide where we go, not him.  But he’s relearning quickly.  He loves the farm and the freedom he has there at night.  He’s in the new 40′ by 20′ kennel my brother and I put up during most of the day down there as when I’m there, I’m usually working with pesticides and other things I’d much rather he not get in to.  But at night and on weekends, he gets to run as much as he wants and I’m teaching him the limits as far as how far away from me I prefer he stay (in anticipation of re-starting our yearly family camping trips).


Cindee (AKA Cindy)

Cindy is also doing very well.  I think she’s enjoying just being Kim’s dog.  In truth, she’s spoiled rotten.  She loves cuddle time on the bed, loves her daily walks, and her ideal day is to chase a tennis ball in the back yard for about an hour in the morning, nap on the bed until noon-ish, go for a walk, and then nap on the bed for a while again.  Sometimes she even gets to stay out of the crate at night and sleep with us.  Overall, though, she is an absolute sweetheart and very mellow for a Weim.

Breeder’s Comment on Cindee — OwyheeStar places some of their retired females with select families. This allows them the best possible retirement and a second career. We are ever so thankful for this family and all they are doing for Ms. Cindee. She is the granddaughter of Deli who passed on at 15.5 years as some of you might remember.

Questioning Our Sanity

Now we get to the crazy part.  Kim has been talking about getting a 3rd Weim for the past few months, mainly as a playmate for Mo.  Cindy is awesome but she’s not much for playtime except first thing in the morning, whereas Mo can go all day and then some.  At this point, we think we’re fairly experienced Weim owners (or do they own us?  it’s hard to tell sometimes), but we’d appreciate any insight to adding a 3rd that you may have.  Specifically, are there any training areas that would need specific focus (apart from the normal stuff that is)?  I’m thinking that the capacity for mischief would more than double with 2 close in age, so I know we’d have to watch out for that.  But is there anything else?  Kim seems adamant about adding a 3rd Weim, which of course has to be an Owyhee Star Weim because we don’t think there are any better for what we look for in a dog.

Breeder’s Comment 

Not everyone can manage one Weimaraner; however, there are many two-Weim families. There are a few OwyheeStar three and four folks–more three Weim families than four. No matter what you think and how you plan this is uncharted territory. There are too many unknowns. All that we speak about for the new puppy in the household still applies; however, you have active Weims to help lead the right direction. Having them fine-tuned is important because what the pup sees is how this will unfold again. If the resident Weims respect you and want to please, things will go a lot better.
The breakdown of how your household works tends to make us believe this work well for you. Cindee has her job keeping Mama company. Mo is engaged with you and having a buddy is probably a plus. There are no guarantees, but if there is one bit of advice we would suggest, it is to check your experience and expertise at the door. Yes, these can serve you well, but all too often it is when we think we have something down pat that we get tripped up. This is a journey that you have to be pro-actively involved with as it unfolds. Of course, we could supply suggestions if you hit a hitch but if you do it as you have — staying calm and dealing with each situation in a relaxed and getting-back-on-track manner, we are confident you could make this work. In general, another altered male probably would be the best fit–a female who might try to take over and be the queen bee could pose the most serious challenge.


Loving, Fun, and Friendly

My fiance and I have a puppy from Cindee and Blue’s 12/9/14 litter. We’ve been meaning to send you an update on him! He is such a loving, fun and friendly puppy! Since we live in Portland we wanted to go with a Portland name, so we named him Burnside after one of the main streets and bridges in the city. We have loved getting to know him and have him become such a big part of our family over the last 7 months. We took him to puppy kindergarten this spring and he graduated with flying colors. He is such a smart dog! We always get so many compliments from other dog owners at the dog park and from our various sitters that watch him. Everyone seems to love him 🙂
At his 8 month vet checkup he weighed in at 55lbs. We’re waiting to see when he’ll start getting taller :). He is quite the cuddle bug and definitely a velcro-dog, staying at our side whenever possible. He adjusted to his crate fairly well and has earned our trust to be home alone, not in his crate for a few hours at a time. He was a dream to potty train! Only 5 days of tracking him around the house before he started asking to go out.
Being our first puppy he has been quite an adventure! But worth the time investment. I’m already thinking about when we should put ourselves on the waiting list for another!
Attaching some pictures for you to enjoy. Thank you for giving us such an amazing puppy! We love him.
Hope you are doing well,
Kellen & Jordan

Charlie Favorites

Bedtime and Blankets

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Charlie’s  favorite time of the day is getting ready for bed. She fluffs up any kind of blanket to make it comfy and then she is out!!

Charlie is now eight months, and we just love her to pieces. Charlie has joined our little zoo, and she has fitted in just perfect. We couldn’t ask for a better dog to join the family.  And honest we just love her!!
It’s really funny now that we have a Weim, how many we see around on our walks and stopping and talking about the dogs and where everyone got theirs. The ones we see are older like 5 and older no puppies around here, but it’s fun to see how Beautiful they are.
We are blessed with our Charlie girl😄

Ghost @ 9 Weeks

Holistic for GhostGhost @ 9 WeeksGhost and the 9-Week Puppy Shot

He went in yesterday (it was either then or Friday for our vet)

No reaction here, not even stiffness at the injection site. He has a very minor ear infection so we had his little ears cleaned out deeper by the vet and got some ear drops to clear it up. I love our new vet, when I told her I didn’t want lepto or corona in the DPPV she said she doesn’t use those any way! And she’s made it clear she likes to keep treatment simple and holistic when possible.

I had a fecal exam done too, just to be safe because he had some soft stool that day any way, and just to be safe, it came back this morning negative. So, we are off to a great start.

At the Barn

Today was his first trip to the barn and he was magnificent. He has such a winning personality, cautious but not nervous, and he adapts to new people and places so quickly! He’s already begun to calm for non sleep/night time crate time pretty well.

He’s going to be such a wonderful man!

Ghost is Doing Well

We are so happy…Ghost at HomeSocialization…..

He’s doing wonderfully so far! No accidents yet, he’s been pretty great about only waking up in the middle of the night to go potty. He’s already met a few new people and working towards 100 new exposures in 100 days, and he’s getting pretty decent at the “touch” command already! (Of course, our socialization is only taking places in low-risk locations. We are aware of the very real risk of contracting Parvo in dog dense locations–we avoid them.)

 Attention All Hands on Deck…

He’s a bit of a whiner, when he first gets put in his crate or when he’s not getting the attention he wants! I bet it must be just awful being a puppy and having to learn a little patients! ;p

 The Cat and our Cuddle-Bug…

He’s so interested and into the cat, the cat ranges from curious through indifferent then to unamused. He’s just the biggest cuddle bug, loves toys and chasing the tennis ball, and loves loves loves the organic pumpkin baby food puree as a training treat!
