Thought you might like a 12week (almost 13) update on our out Henry!
He’s amazing. He loves to play fetch and so good at the return. He is learning and listening so well. Still mastering the potty training, but great as long as we are paying attention! He’s such a funny pup and so smart! He is able to play hide and seek with toys and people. He’s catching on so we’ll to words we use. He is obedient to sit, stay, lay down, come and ‘outside’ (our word for potty!) He has even mastered wiping his feet when he comes back in, on the rug…. For a treat of course! He has grown SO much and going to need a bigger bed soon!
Sorry some of the pics are blurry! He’s not still for long! ~Jill and Clint
Hello There–we are so happy to hear from you. Just look at what is happening, you are doing great things. We cannot be happier to hear the news and to these photos. Thanks ever so much!
~Toys with Stone
Stone is continuing to grow – 12 pounds at his 9 week old shot and now, at almost 12 weeks, he is 16 pounds.
His older brother Blue is starting to learn how to share toys and play with puppy. I have to admit, I got rid of night time crating, Blue and Stone sleep together in a pile of cuddles on the bed. And Stone sleeps right through the night till about 5 am when I get up anyway.
AND the new vet is totally on your page about the Titer test! Thank goodness! He confirmed everything you said and I’m sending him the link to the test you ordered. So frustrating that every other vet (two of them) said it was woo woo and had no scientific basis but he said, yes, Weims have an autoimmune situation that the 16 week shot could impact. So, we are clear to get the Titer. I turned down the extra vaccinations today too.
Stone is an amazing dog. He is wicked smart and so loving. He can sit, lie down, shake hands and do circles by hand command. You have given me such a special little guy. Everyone that meets him is blown away. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We are so delighted to hear about Stone’s quick adjustment. The news that your Vet agrees with the vaccine protocol is also excellent news. We spoke with a gentleman who added a second Weimaraner to his family this week–he said his resident rescue Weimaraner, has a vaccine reaction each time they give him a shot. Well–he is taking the information to his Vet to ask them to order this test. I sincerely hope they can work it out. Another woman approached her Vet but had to go to a second to work out a way to get this titer test done. The first wanted to do a $ 375 titer series, and even then they balked–wanting to give the vaccine. Typically a Titer to check for immunity to Parvo runs about $ 125–each antibody you check for is another $ 125. You can see the advantage of the less expensive option which tests for all three and costs less than $ 125. I cannot guess how much your Vet will charge. I believe it cost us around $ 60. We are encouraged that more people are finding a way to get the titer testing.
Stone is one smart cookie–and you are doing so well with him. Thank you, for that as well as this update.
~Winning the Battle
Thank you you guys are the best!! Her eyes are changing more green and not as bright. I just love her but oh man when I get home and she is with Chris all day she gets so excited and starts biting me with her sharp teeth. I’m trying to control the biting but I hate to say its been hard finding a good trainer to follow. I just bought 2 books on Amazon by Kyra Sundance are you familiar with her? All her training books feature a weimarinar on the cover.
I know she doesn’t mean too nip, but she got my lip good today. She nips just when she is really hyper. I need to find some good tips and practices cause boy she got my ear good too.
She sleeps next to us every night and loves her dog bed and silly toys. She is so smart and loves to retrieve and does so well with dropping her toy and repeating the process. She is so cuddly and sweet. It’s the biting I am struggling with it’s my job to teach her and she is in her best time period for learning. I say no bite and point my finger which isn’t working because it seems to provoke her. Today I turned and crossed my arms and she just bit me from behind. Don’t get me wrong she doesn’t do this all day just when she is really excited and over stimulated. I look like a goof with this mark on my face. Talk soon thanks again so much!! Bridget
You might remember the link I posted about embracing the biting Weimaraner–in the end, once you have the bite inhibition worked through it will work in your favor. The worst kind of biting is fear biting. This puppy biting thing is how they treat those they love–but if you observe them in the litter or with their mother–there are consequences.
Click Here to read Ann Taguchi’s insightful article on the Weimaraner puppy biting. I have posted this before, but if you missed the article, it would be a good time to read it.
I am happy to report Bridget is getting a handle on this issue (we spoke yesterday), but I wanted to post this because we all know how frustrating the biting can be. Yes, it seems it is always something.
Thank you Shela. I just can’t believe Stone has come into my life. He is so smart. Ringing the bells to go outside already! My friend came over to drill a piece of wood into the bottom of the backyard fence so Stone can’t escape and the sound freaked Stone out. He ran straight to Blue for protection. And Blue has been barking ferociously at EVERY passerby when we are outside in the backyard. I think he is protecting Stone.
This little guy is the greatest gift. I mean look at those little eyes!
On this Daylight Savings Day, can I merely say how very appreciative I am to hear from you Victoria. It warms my heart.

Ace busy pruning my wisteria this morning 😬
The vet has agreed to administer the vaccines according to the Weimaraner protocol. He was prescribed an antibiotic for his eyes. We are hoping that his umbilical hernia will close by itself. I think it already looks smaller. His weight was 15 and 1/2 lbs. It seemed to me that he weighed a little more when we got him but he is eating, sleeping, playing and getting longer legs!! He is a beauty❣️

~ Not what I thought (whew)!
I just wanted to let you know that all is going very well despite a young puppy’s voracious appetite and sharp teeth!!I believe we are off to a solid start. We have completed the AKC registration and the registration for the microchip. We have adjusted the feedings to 1 cup 3x a day. Unfortunately Ace thinks he needs more. Lot’s more!!You know what happens to a dog when you cross that line. Yep! Diarrhea!! We tried listening to him and that’s what we got 🙃
Just set your mind at rest, I turned in a stool sample on Saturday and it was negative 😊
He is sitting and knows his name. Mostly responds to “Ace come” when called. A terrific pottier outside 👍🏻We are monitoring the umbilical hernia but are not concerned. His eye infections are cleared up but he has to finish 3 more days of the antibiotic.I hope all the rest of his litter mates are doing well❣️🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾

Thanks for the detailed updates –we are thrilled to hear that Ace is doing well. Yes, the last minute little hernia appears to be nothing of significance. I am glad you are not worried. Over the years, we have learned that doing as little as possible with these seems to be the best choice–only fix a larger one that is more risky.
We are glad you had the stool sample checked. With young pups it is always wise to check to be sure nothing more is going on–but you have this covered. It appears other folks are doing well–at least that is what we have heard.

Thanks for the insight into Stone’s life as well as the great story of Blue’s ownership. Not every situation is going to come together so quickly. We are happy for you, Stone, and Blue. Thanks!
~That Makes Us A Two Weim Family
Stone and Blue are getting to know each other. Blue refuses to share his treats or toys and makes this very clear to Stone.
But, at the end of the day, they find comfort in snuggling together. We’ve had great progress with potty training in three days, answering to commands like Come and Stay but not so much with the crate. Stone cries and cries at night until he is too tired and then starts up again after a wee rest. Needless to say, he is adored.
You are doing fabulous Victoria–keep it up! We look forward to hearing how things unfold over time.
All is well. All systems are working and we have had only one accident (my fault), otherwise, she’s going outside regularly. She does well at the office and actually asked to go out!
P.S. please put me down for a blue female with the tail. Let me know when I need to send a deposit.
First, we want to thank Steve for being such a fantastic Weimlover. Now, some of you might wonder he what he means when he says, “with a tail.” Don’t all Weims have a tail? Yes, they do.
Steve means he wants an undocked tail on his next pup–which is what this one has by request. We have a particular protocol we follow for this type of request. For one thing, the deposit is sizeable–because if the person happens to walk away, then finding another home for the pup is an arduous task. It can be done, but it requires a lot of extra work. Therefore, we need more to get on the Wait List for the undocked tail, as well as to reserve such a puppy. Once the decision has been made, as about one-week, then docking the tail also becomes more involved.

Then this Happened
Brandon Writes–Just wanted to drop a little note to let you know that the puppy is home and seems very happy. I look forward to working with you guys in the very near future!
We are thrilled to hear that Toby is setting into his new family–doing well. We look forward to working with you again, thanks for the photos, Brandon.
~out of the ordinary
Winchester woke up like it was any other day this morning until he went outside to go potty. There was this strange white cold powder covering the ground. He was unsure what to think about this so he slowly walked into what he learned to be snow. Winchester realized the snow was fun so he started running around in it. Mom even tossed a couple of snowballs at Chester he had so much fun.
Now he is warming up on the couch curled up next to his mommy taking a nap.
Whitney–thank you, for thinking of us with this special update. It is greatly appreciated.
