~In Her Golden Year Placement
Dear Cliff and Shela
I have some news–I am being a good girl. Bonnie and Elton have rules–I thought you said I was running things. Well, I am staying off the couch –kind of off. I find ways to get by here–did I say they have rules?
It gets worse. They waterboard me in the shower. That aside, it’s a pretty good gig what with the constant love and attention. They train easily and recognize I’m the boss…

Blast From the Past–Ginger is Deja’s Mama
At the Nielsen Farm
Maybe you know about Boone–several of you have a Boone-sired pup. He is a gorgeous Blue Stud. We love him loads. A couple of days ago we took him and Deja Vu out for a little run–or a walk around the farm. We wanted to capture their journey. We got several snippets and stitched them together.
You might remember seeing a previous blog that featured Boone–here is the link if you want to review it or in case you missed it altogether–click here.
~ Reminds us of her Great Great Grandma Deli
Occasionally we share a few photos and some information about our Weims on this Blog. Deja produced a very small litter. We had hoped for better results. Nonetheless, some lineages are like this–you might get nothing or only a couple of pups. Sometimes it is worth the effort despite the problems associated. Such is the case with Deja Vu (who reminds us of Deli). You might remember Deja’s Great Great Grandma Deli if you have been around for more than a few years.
Cliff and Deja went out to capture a few pre-whelp snapshots. Maybe you will enjoy putting your eye on her. She likes to spin. If she is waiting for you, she is turning circles. She is also very fast and agile, but compact in comparison to a lot of Weimaraners. She loves everyone. Here are those snapshots for your enjoyment.
In The Kitchen
~With Tobryn and Tallyn
(02/12/2018) Have thought about you and Cliff many times in the last few weeks so that means I need to either email, call, etc. The attached video is Tobryn and Tallyn having a moment in the kitchen. Tobryn turned 5 last October and Tallyn will be 2 this June. Yikes…….so true that time marches on. Hope you have your health back and all is well with Cliff.
(02/13/2018) Great hearing back from you. Winter has been frigid here, but my home is warm and with the boys in bed at night (under the covers) is sometimes too warm. LOL
Thank you, Ron, for the update. We are glad you are staying warm this winter. The boys look happy and well-adjusted. I was thinking as I received your note, how we spoke about the possibility of getting two ten years before it became a reality. Like you say–time flies by too quickly.
Two Boys and Ron
~Here is Tallyn at 8 Months
The last 5 1/2 mo have been enlightening!!! Tobryn is the dominate male (thanks to your advice) and I may have to have all the entry ways made larger if Tallyn continues to grow! Which he will. LOL LOL . We are thriving and it has been a process.
Hope all is well at your end and email when you get a chance. ~ Ron
Twice the Fun
Ron had planned on getting two Weims at once. He had a dream. Over a period of years, one thing after another happened to prevent him from moving ahead. We stayed in touch on a casual basis for what seemed like a decade.
He spoke of getting Tallyn and Tobryn–two brothers. Ron had had two littermates–he was looking for a repeat experience. Cliff and I talked to him about considering the idea of getting one at a time. You know– with a bit of space between each one. Eventually, this is how things unfolded — with Tallyn (the second boy) joining the family earlier this year. He is now four-months-old, and Ron has kept us apprised of the process from the beginning. Click here to read more from a previous post.

Did a “double take” when I walked into the living room!!!! Tobryn has been amazing! Shows his teeth multiple times during the day, but has never actually BIT Tallyn. I suspect that he is setting boundaries. We all are slowly evolving into the new norm. But after talking to others at the dog park, I know I am way ahead of the curve. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your advice about making sure that everyone knows their “pecking order.” When we go out, Tobryn gets into the front door of the car and Tallyn goes to the rear door.

First puppy class starts tomorrow (Thursday) at 630p. Tallyn has an IQ that probably rivals mine. Tobryn and Tallyn now sleep in the same bed……….sometimes cheek to cheek. The initial acceptance phase has progressed. As we continue this journey, I’m forever grateful for you, Cliff, as well as the Mother and Father of Tallyn.
We are thrilled to hear the transition is going well. It was the plan from the beginning to make it a duo (two males). Finding a second pup that fit well into the family was important. Nevertheless, it requires a bit of knack to incorporate a new pup with the resident Weimaraner. Many of our clients have two Weimaraners. It is doable, but having two alpha-acting types is never a good thing. Thank you, Ron, for keeping us in the loop.
Goes to Town
~ D & B Supply (Ontario, OR)
“Deja Vu” born August 1st, 2015 to Ginger’s litter sired by “Blue”. Sunday she made her first trip into town with us since she was pup visiting the Veterinary.
She was amazing! No previous leash training had been done with her–our schedule has been crazy! She didn’t get into things–even those at her eye (nose level). She greeted everyone with joy and was appreciated by all.
Deja is compact. She is also a happy and tail-wagging girl. Here she is in action!
We are Happy to have Blu in our Lives
I am a huge dog-lover. As a kid, I grew up with Labs. As an adult (and as a father) I had to take a back seat to what dogs my kids liked. Needless to say, it has been a long time coming for me to have “My Dog”. The kids are grown, that is except for our four-year-old. She is not yet old enough to select her dog of choice. This time around it is my turn. I love the fact that they are friendly and feel part of the family. Have looked into this breed for years.
Blu is making his way into our home and hearts
Plenty of room for Blu to run around. My youngest Daughter is in love with Blu, and he likewise with her.
