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.
~Thriving in Washington State
She’s loving her new home!
We are ready for the task of making both girls feel loved and special. I believe we can get Gracie (our lovely and adorable older Weimaraner) to turn around, I’ve seen it with her and other dogs. Vigilance is the key.
Then This Happened
We are happy to see Campbell is doing excellent, and that Gracie is adapting to the upstart’s arrival. You have the perfect approach. Thanks for letting us know how things are going–also, for the video and photos.
~Made it Safely to California
(Saturday October 26, 2019) What a day…and we’re not done yet! Baby “T” (name still under discussion) was great meeting friends and relatives today in Roseville and he was perfect on the drive home. This was taken after a wave of relatives had left just before we left Roseville.
He comes with the ability to run after small children (very happily). I’ve had a half dozen alerts that the power would go out at 4 p.m. It’s now 5:30 and the car is unpacked and I still have power but wanted to get this to you today as we could be without power until Wednesday. Not a big deal really…glad its a weekend.
Love to you both, Barb
It always makes us happy to know a puppy has made it safely and is making an excellent adjustment. All the socialization and work should set you up for success, but it is an ongoing process. Thanks for the news. We sincerely hope you are safe. Let us know how things go.
