~Tarmac not so long ago
You should see how he races around the yard. By the way Tarmac and Serena both know “ tennis” even when my husband spells it… not actual tennis… he’ll get them chasing four tennis balls at once.
Tarmac and the sticks… he’s dragged in tree limbs and been very possessive. We have a vacant lot next door and he acts like we’re tossing his best friends over there. We get a lot of deer over there and he likes to perch on a little high spit in our yard and he just watches them eat. Right now wild plums by the ton over there… the deer love them.
This post is a little delayed in getting posted–it may be timely. We are all in need of sunshine and news of sunny weather. (Haha) Tarmac has a lot of work–cleaning up limbs and branches is exhausting. OMG
~In The Driver’s Seat
Thor got his first driver’s lesson! How are you and Cliff doing? Thor has been doing very well. He goes on runs every morning and evening. Gets lots of exercise and loves it! I took him on a good few miles hike yesterday fishing and he was in heaven! He’s very well behaved and trained. He can heal, come, stay, sit and listens very well. He’s got his aloof moments when he wants to play. But he’s been an amazing family member.
He now even walks our Rottweiler mix Hannah ! Lol. He literally grabs the leash and starts pulling her on the walks. Lol it’s so funny
We also found out that Thor is not immune to Adeno virus, but we decided to NOT give him the vaccination for this because we read it’s rare for Weimes and not life threatening. what do you recommend?
First, this is where we say we are not Licensed Veterinarians, nor are we Licensed Veterinary Technicians. Vaccine issues are a serious matter for this breed–no one can attest to the truth of this more than someone who has had their Weimaraner succumb to serious life-threatening vaccine reaction. The puppy shot vaccinates for Adeno Virus II–which is against upper respiratory infections. Click here to read more.
We are most happy to see Thor as a central part of your life–and we love the photos. Thank you–this is a cute update. We genuinely appreciate it.
We were at my best friends house and Thor loves to lay on a couch and near his sister Chloe. Here he is on her lap. He’s a really good listener but has an aloof personality sometimes. (Lol) He’s always challenging us but he knows by now that I am the leader in the pack so it doesn’t last long before he corrects his attitude.
Just wasn’t sure with his breed if it was OK to go on hikes. The hike we are doing this weekend is only 3 miles each way so should be fine. The one I’m doing with my brothers the following week is 11 miles and higher elevation so I will spare him that one although I would have loved to take him with me. Next year I’ll be taking him on all my hikes!
Thank you for all the hard work you are putting into Thor. This breed is not easy to raise–if it isn’t one thing, then it is another. Being involved in family life and joining in on your adventures is a huge plus. Exercise is essential; however, high-impact exercise is saved for later–one the growth plates close. Hiking is an excellent activity.
~Has Friends and Family
Thor is much loved. Here he is with our 12 year old daughter. He has fur friends and family too.
Here he is playing with neighbor Daisy (an Australian Shepherd).

We are so happy to hear that Thor is doing so excellent. Thanks for the video clips and the photo.
~The Journey Begins
Thor has been a blast, no crying, no accidents, really well potty trained, and showers us with kisses and loves. He loves the grass and playing with the girls all evening. He’s going to sleep well tonight lol (I hope!). Every time we took him out for a potty break it was instant once he landed on the grass. After eating his dinner we took him out for a 5 min walk and he picked a hidden corner and went for #2! So far he’s a huge success and the whole neighborhood can’t wait to meet him :).
So, the journey begins. We both know there will be ups and downs–challenges and joyful moments throughout the process of raising any Weimaraner puppy. We hope you will keep us apprised, and we truly appreciate this lovely note.
~ Running Loose
Here are a few snapshots of Hattee who has the current litter which is featured on our Website. It is the Early Summer Litter –we are not expecting pups until Fall or Early Winter. Thanks to Hattee for the eight beautiful babies–all have been promised.
Well, I thought a photo from the archives showing Mama nursing her babies might be just the thing to celebrate. I hope you agree!
Just wanted to check in and see how you all are weathering the COVID-19 pandemic. I hope you are handling it well and keeping your health and sanity. Campbell is just over 8 months old now and really turning into a fantastic pup!
She has incredible energy (which we love) and is very trainable. I was able to take her on her first mountain bike ride this past weekend (slow and only about 30 minutes) and she never broke heal during the entire ride. We love her and just wanted to say thanks for such a wonderful dog. Here are a few pictures of here I wanted to share with you.
All the best,
Chris & Toni
Gracie, our other Weim, is 12 1/2 years old now and still going strong!
We are happy that Campbell has fit so well into your family. Thanks for the great photos and the news of her incorporation into the family.
….his earlier habit of shredding sweaters ended by Christmas and so far (this won’t last) he’s not really counter surfing. I think we are, ourselves, well trained about not leaving out anything we don’t want a dog to destroy.
I also think chewing on moose antlers has slowed kept him occupied. He doesn’t destroy stuff animals…we’ve had dogs who would do it like it was a contest and they were being timed on “how fast can you skin that rabbit”. Our old Weim Temblor had a couple of toys he loved to the end that he’d had since puppy hood. Tarmac is more like him than our old boy Tsukiji (who thought it was his job to seek and destroy anything with stuffing).
What a great little discussion on the Weimar Ways. Thanks
~ At Six Months
Tarmac is an incredibly sweet, playful and trainable dog (we’ve had Weims and pointers who resisted on some aspects of training…he’s loved it). He is incredibly calm (should I say “for a Weim”). He considers every person and dog he meets on our hikes and walks to be a “friend” and when he has a second meeting he’s in “full wag”…they know he’s incredibly happy to see them again. He’s devoted to his standard poodle sister and she to him. I can’t imagine life without Tarmac.
We are delighted to learn that Tarmac is doing well. The fact that he is so engaging and friendly is a huge plus. Not every Weimaraner is so friendly and engaging–some prefer their family.
