~Never a Dull Moment
I’ve been trying to capture a few pictures to send. I am doing ok, staying busy with work, Praise God, and our usual activities-walks and play dates with the neighboring Vizla.
Winchester is heading to his 11th birthday in April. Opus is seven (I believe) and Stanley, four.
The older two like the blankets over them now that it’s “winter” in south Texas. Stanley totally photobombed the picture-I laughed so hard as he plopped right in the middle.
Opus is super-nosey; I’ve been getting ready for remodel and he’s into everything. Winchester is my rock. He’s the most intuitive and protective.
My kids will both be here for Christmas -first time in five years, so I have many blessings to count.
I think of y’all every day. Stay warm and healthy 💙
I love that you took time out of your busy schedule to think of us and share how things are going. We truly appreciate it–enjoy your Family Christmas –stay well.
Winchester Opus and Stanley
In the bedroom–Every one kind of has their spot and then they rotate a bit during the night. Stanley has no concept of personal space. As long as he’s touching someone. 💙Now out back it is whole different scenario
Like so many people I am no longer working due to government forced closure of nonessential businesses. I needed to be able to sit outside if I’m forced to stay home, so after two weeks of research, I splurged and bought a little set for the back porch. We are all enjoying it! Even today, it’s a rather chilly 45’ but the hummingbirds are visiting, the squirrel is taunting and the sun is out. Perfect for enjoying my coffee and my babies. 💙💙💙
We are all doing whatever we can to keep our sanity. I think we can agree the Weims help us on so many levels.
I wish I had a video. Poor Opus. He’s so special 🤦🏼♀️
This isn’t the first time we’ve had to check out this “dog”.

I am not sure what personal space means–the ultra Velcro Weimaraner, for the most part, seems to think they are better when touching to or someone they love. Some are more clingy than others.
For all those who only have the one Weimaraner (or might be just starting with their first), can you imagine someone living with three? People do it, and in some cases, they even might have four family Weimars–but it most certainly is not for everyone.
~We’re Going Public
The weather is finally cooling off in south Texas! I saw someone do this for their dog on the internet and I wondered if my boyz would like it…success! It just took a few minutes of positive reinforcement and they trusted the contraption. 😹
Sending love and weim kisses! ~Melinda
This gadget is fabulous. I have a little face and ear massage that is kind of similar. Thank you for sharing this with us.
Dear Mom–you said I couldn’t be on the furniture, but this stool is made for sitting–so I am just going to use it to improve my vantage point.
In truth–furniture can mean tabletops, counters, and the like. Weims will use everything or anything available to them. Roxy is full of herself–and life. What more can we want from our beloved breed? There must be a squirrel, a bird, or critter out there–I know it, says Miss Roxy.
~Opus a saurus — one who mouths everything
Like most Weims, he is mouthy–I’ve really struggled with this habit of his. He is the reason I engaged the services of a trainer.
Not Gonna Happen
This picture is from one of the visits and from the dog trainer. He just laid there. He’s the reason I needed the trainer–remember. He’s not wanting to work on stuff. I’ve really struggled with this habit with him.
It’s quite alarming when he grabs you by the arm if you’re not comfortable with 85 lbs of lovin’. Then he nibbles your butt. Always predictable. Never harmful. We’re making strides. This picture is from one of the visits from the dog trainer. He just laid there. He’s the reason I needed the trainer. He’s very mouthy, like most Weims. I’ve really struggled with this habit with him.
Ok that’s it for now. I just love them all. Thank you. Can’t imagine belong without these guys.
Can I just say you are the best–thank you, Melinda, for your response to my request. BTW–I appreciate everyone who has already send something for our blog–and those who still plan to do so.
~Whipped Cream Involved
I just wanted to share this 🤣 you can’t see Opus in the video I put on FB. I love how he backs up 😂I think he is not impressed with how this sprays out. Whipped cream in my dish please.
That you, Melinda–you are always good to share the cute and unique situations you encounter. With three OwyheeStar kids–I am sure you see the likeness and at the same the unique quirkiness. Love to you and Winchester, Opus, and Stanley (the Longhair).
The Much-Loved Weimar
~Kitty taught him this.
I’m just writing to say how much Clyde is the love of our lives. Everyday!
Thanks for making us a beautiful boy! ~ Amy
This note (from Amy) came in time to fuel the recent FaceBook side discussion–in reply to the ‘I Get Around Blog‘ featuring Lily the sofa back Watch Weimar Gal. Callie (Deli X Zeke) was the first girl we had who preferred this location atop the living room sectional. It might interest you to know that the various girls mentioned in regard to this trait are not related. Therefore, we must assume this sofa-sitting thing is DNA wired. Copying the kitty came naturally to Clyde.
Thank you, Amy, for sharing how much you love Clyde and this photo.
This is Winchester and Opus.
Honestly, our neighbor’s dog has trained the Boyz to come out and play—and to run the fence. The dogs had trained ME to let them out when he barked. Who is smarter?!It is Thursday folks, and we can see the weekend from here. ~ Melinda (and her charges)
