Winter is coming to an end and we are so excited to spend another spring and summer season with Nix! He loved exploring with us. We learned quickly he isn’t the best fishing partner though as he dives in every fishing hole looking for birds. Any bird, he perks right up. Even the word bird lol! The beach and river walks are still his favorite. Lately he has brought mice in to show off. Typically they surprise me when I roll over on the bed or couch and there he has a friend for me to see. Sticks are the same. I woke to a stick in my bed the other morning! He loves the girls most and swaps from my bed to our daughters every night. We are really leaning towards another one to add to the family. I keep trying to convince myself it’s not a good idea but it comes up in every family conversation so maybe it’s a sign 🙂
Nixon shares his finds with you, and you are an excellent sport about it. Wow!
~ He is much loved by our family
We hadn’t shared in a while and he surely gets more photos taken than the kids 🤣
As you can see, we do a lot together–well, snuggles are most certainly included with the fun and games–and the refereeing the counters, etc. Most every activity Nixon is included.
This morning (Dec 20, 2020) we went for a beach run. Both dogs ran their hearts out. My youngest gets anxiety if I don’t have them on a leash. He is afraid they will never come back lol!
The adventures of Nixon are fabulously fun–thanks, again, for the update.
~OMG — First Birthday
Can’t believe our baby is 1! He weighs in at 92 pounds, can tell time and will let you know it’s mealtime by sitting in his spot and waiting for his dish! He has a big personality and pouts like no other if he is mad at his mama! A total bed hog, stealer of all hearts (and food), loves walks on our favorite wetland trail to look for birds, drives to see the coffee shop girls, running on the beach, and playing with our youngest more than anyone. They wrestle, play chase, hide and seek and dress up lol.
He is the boss of our weinie dog and gets his way easily by barking in his ear. They are the best of friends and fight over the same toys always. We make many visits out to the cousins to see the gsp’s and he loves to run in the field with them. Last visit he came back with an elk foot! Nothing goes untouched! We have had many moments of missing items (food, toy, clothing, etc) that we all point the blame at one another only to find he has it hidden under the blueberry bush. Just tonight, he took a brand new loaf of bread off the counter as we prepared French toast. All that survived was the bag lol.
But, I think we are making a turn from any chewing of the house or shoes, we hope! We love this guy so much we can’t imagine a life without him! Would even consider another! Thank you for giving us the greatest blessing!!
Nixon is so adorable (forgive me for saying that when we are the breeder). Thank you for remembering us with these fabulous photos and insights into his first year with you.

Hi ! Hope you and Cliff are well! I want to give you an update on Sophia. 10 months old now (can you believe it?!) and she weighs 75 pounds. Martha (vet) said “Keep doing what you’re doing, she’s healthy and at a perfect weight.” 😁
We love hearing the news that Sophia is doing well–and the Vet endorsement that your diet is perfect for her. Thanks for keeping us apprised. Keep doing what you are doing — it is a journey, and in time we will see what you become.
“No dogs allowed at the pumpkin patch, no problem!” 😁🎃

This was the kids’ reward for a good first month of remote learning. Life is so different for them right now, it’s fun to be able to do something special and out of the ordinary in a good way for them. ❤ Bonus points for the dogs loving it too!
Family fun that includes the Weimars–we love it. What a fabulous idea.
Our sweet boy Nixon went on his first full river float/kayak adventure yesterday! We were on the river for 3 miles and 4 hours. He swam, ran, tromped his way through the fields and river banks the entire time! Took a short break on the kayak twice, passed 5 other dogs he didn’t bat an eye at, was super curious about the crawdads the kids were catching and even caught a sand piper bird that he ever so gently brought back to me and I returned to his nest safely 😂
He was absolutely amazing and to say he slept good was an understatement! Loving our boy and all the adventures!
What a great family adventure. The sandpiper story was excellent. We appreciate you allowing us to share your story with our readers and follow along with you on your journey.

I love the portrait photo of her! She was so tiny not all that long ago. Maybe you remember her with her sister Azura–a Doberman. Azura wasn’t too sure about this addition at first.
Now, they are inseparable, and she holds her own with her big sister. A friendly game of tug-o-war can happen, but snuggling works its way into the mix, and these days Azura readily accepts her shadow.
We love hearing about Sophia and how she interacts with Azura. Thanks for all the hard work you are putting into her. We hope she fulfills all you imagined.
It’s a Weimar Thing
~ Here is Sophia
I don’t know how this is comfortable, but it’s her favorite position! Below is her when she was much younger–same sort of pose. Some things do not change.
We love seeing all the crazy positions the Weimaraner takes–I think most everyone can relate.
Update on our bestie, Nixon, now 6 months and a 70 pound lover. We took him for our first camping trip this year. First night in the tent was rough, as he barked at every single pinecone that had the audacity to hit our tent. He was willing to protect and serve his people throughout the night 😂 we quickly learned white noise was our friend and the rest of the trip went smoothly.
He enjoyed swimming in the river with the kids, playing frisbee, our hike to the falls and even took a dip in the freezing cold water and wanted to hike up the rocks with us! Such a good guide and always alerts us when he senses danger ahead. Even if it’s just a large weed or rock 🤣
This week we have begun picking blackberries in the woods. He loves that! Sniffs out every single area and waited for us ahead, would circle us and alert to whatever he thought was questionable…even a piece of carpet laying ahead lol! I love this boy. He has our heart and loves adventures and listens well! We ended last nights walk with a deer ahead he decided to chase! I called him back and just as began to really worry he returned quickly at my calls. Good boy Nix, good boy.
Nixon loves being a part of your adventures–might we say he makes them more fun. At least, for the most part. The unexpected might cause a short-lived alarm, but he moves on quickly. Good for you–what a life you have together. Thank you–for everything, and especially for thinking of us.
The fear of losing him as he gave chase to a deer is very real. Unfortunately, we have many stories of this sort. You might want to consider investing in a GPS tracking collar for Nixon to wear on these outdoor adventure trips. Also, this is for your own peace of mind as well Nixon’s well-being.
