Our Astra

~Working to Become our best together

Wearing her new Christmas Collars

Astra is doing good and we love our snuggle bug she is still in training. She is fearful of strangers runners and bicyclists but she is doing better.

A wonderful day at Sauvie Island 

We taught her to swim and she loves it she wags her tail while she swims. And we still love hanging out at the beach. Thank you for our baby. ~ Tanya

Keep up the great work. It is so great that Astra swims–all Weimaraners can swim. Not everyone accomplishes the swim, however, but we would love it if they did. Weims can be wonky. I was going to write about this trait, but maybe I will just throw that out there and let everyone mull that thought over. (Haha)

Sandwiched

~ Between Duchess and Diesel

Here is my great nephew enjoying the kids, Duchess got up since I reached for my phone. I told Christopher that he was a ‘Christopher’ sandwich with Weim bread, as a very loving 9 year old, he giggled and said “send a picture to my mom.”

Foster wasn’t too happy his best buddy was enjoying the company of another human but sleep in and this happens!

Breeder Comment

Well–I can understand your son (Foster) finding his cousin sandwiched thinking someone was being disloyal. (Haha) These two typically sandwich him–even though Duchess is your baby girl.

We are delighted to learn that things are going well with Astra. She swims, does tricks, and snuggles. What a girl. Thanks for remember us!

Goose Lake

~Camping with Duchess & Co

We made a quick trip up to Goose Lake while our house was being shown this weekend. Duchess was a natural except she doesn’t like it when the cattle walk through our camp-that got her riled up, I wasn’t a fan either!

No fish were caught to Foster’s dismay, but all and all it was a good overnight trip despite the rain and cow pies at least they slept on the way home!

Breeder Comment

You know how we love seeing the Weims participate in family fun. Camping looks to be exhausting. (Haha) Thank you — for getting us this news that makes a lovely blog post. It is truly appreciated.

Duchess

~Rabies shot day!

  She is waiting patiently. After our shot we went to Lowe’s and Foster made a comment “people are sure a lot nicer when you have a dog!” Lol!

Duchess got a lot of attention from other customers AND treats from the checker at the store so even though she was a little shy she had a positive experience.

Into the Ball

~ And Water, Too!

Diesel is so into the ball! He loves the water retrieve. Oh, and by the way, Duchess did well in the water too!

As always, my boy Foster is in the mix. He and the Weims–they are pretty much my life.

Yes, Duchess who is about six-months old now also swam. She loves the water. She is a natural.

Breeder Comment

We wish you lovely summer weather–and lots of opportunities to enjoy the water as well as the sunshine this summer.

Astra

~She’s Getting Bigger

She is our little girl and we love her with all our hearts. She loves the back yard and caught her first frisbee midair she loves playing ball , jumping into the hammock with mom. Her favorite thing in the yard is the fountain it is three tier and she likes the bottom she will drink water out of it and let all the water run down her face we now call it the dog wash.

Breeder Comment

It sounds like Miss Astra is doing well. The fountain thing is a hoot. Thanks for the share–we all enjoyed it.

Summer Vacation

~Can Mean a lot of things

You might remember that we picked up Duchess not all that long ago–and our Diesel was not all that thrilled with her arrival at first. He wasn’t bad, but his attitude said, “and I don’t think we need this.” So, we were off and running back to the Two-Weim family again, hoping that Diesel would fall in love with Duchess, too.

Fast Forward six-weeks

School is officially out. This is what I see as I leave for work–Foster and the two Weims snuggled in. This boy is not short on Weim snuggles!  

We are getting out into the community, too! Since we got back the good results from the recent titer test (showing we were protected from the Parvovirus), we have gotten out and about. For one, we made it to the dog park, and I now have two really tired Weims.

Change happened

Yes, Duchess will rule the roost, it is what it is. Scout and Diesel aren’t impressed where HER game of keep away with the ball 😂Well, here is the look that speaks volumes from our boy, Diesel.

Duchess Swam

I figured Duchess had already been swimming at your place. She took to the water naturally. Later, I learned that you didn’t have water in the pond, and this was her first water experience. Wow–and she swam, too!

Breeder Comment

We love hearing about Diesel and Duchess. It was especially sweet to learn that she is a natural in the water. Have a fun summer–Foster, has a job.

Puppy Kindergarten

~Andi’s Formal Training Begins Soon

Andi has her Forever Family right where she wants them–close at heart. We received the results from the titer test (done by Dr. Calhoun’s Idaho Veterinary Hospital–Nampa, Idaho)–Andi is safe to go out in public. Hurrah!

Andi with her Mallard — so, technically, she is a Duck Dog.

Nancy Says…

She doesn’t bark but sometimes she squeeks with good cheer.  Millie used to do that, Weimie squeaks, there’s nothing cuter.

What a wonderful dog she is.  I set up her crate which she immediately got into and sat telling me, “I got this.”  She adores my 5 yo grandson.  No indoor messes.  She prances behind me everywhere I go. She loves her toys keeping them all in a pile, her pile. She is not destructive in any way, tho I did move all my house plants up and gave a few away. She is absolutely the best!  She’s a people dog. Does she know how to bark?? Thunder outside right now, she is not bothered at all, calm and happy.

She is so well adjusted. Thank you for all you and Cliff did to socialize her. She is a very fast learner, she is so willing to please.

Sisters

~Meet Up Again

Saturday we too Andi and Alli (Dahlia X Boone) to get a Titer Test at the Idaho Veterinary Hospital in Nampa, Idaho. As it happens, Sheila and Foster were there for the same thing with Duchess.

So, the three sisters had a moment. Andi has her forever family in Nampa with Nancy and Sam–there will be an update this week. Meanwhile, we hope you enjoy this short video.
