Maizie

~Celebrates 8 Candles

February 28, 2012 was a good day on this planet!  Livee and Blue produced a marvelous litter of pups born on that day!  Among them were Miles who lives in Seattle with Grace and the Dobermans, Gabriel who is an award-winning beauty living in Russia, and of course our Maizie!  

Besides being beautiful, friendly and athletic, her abundant joy-with-life personality is what makes her stand out in a crowd!  She still has “puppy energy” (although sleeps more than she did when younger), she smiles and she teases.  Maizie is totally devoted to her family and family relatives and friends of family.  She is set solid in her ways with daily routines.  (peanut butter in Kong bone after breakfast for one)  

She still can be naughty if she feels like it—like finding a paper cup or a napkin to chew up when we’re not around.  She still has a penchant for paper—most recently Jerry’s Saxophone sheet music!  Maizie still insists on pulling on the leash when we walk or run with her.  She will never be like Jan’s Willow.  Though headstrong, she is so smart that sometimes we have to spell a word because she is always listening—her command of English words and phrases is phenomenal.  Maizie is in love with life—and we are so in love with Maizie.

We are happy that Maize has had eight good years. We hope for many more. We love hearing from you and seeing her in action. Thanks ever so much.

Do You Have One?

Down with the Down Comforter

Nightly Rituals

Do you have one? Of course, we mean with the Weimaraner. The bedtime ritual seems to be a theme. The routine established is hard to undo. Keep this in mind as the fun begins. Will it be fun for you five years from now? Who can guess? Disappointing the Weimaraner is not readily embraced. Their stare-down look. The pout.

The rituals or routine activities are the Weim’s life. There is no going back.

Linda (Maizie’s Mom) writes, “This is a nightly ritual here.”

Maizie started this and now she expects this every single night when we are ready to get into bed!  Often Jerry is too tired, but the happy gleeful look on her face with a toy in her mouth and wagging tail is too much to ignore‼️😉.

What could we add here? Nothing!

~ Our beautiful girl left us today

December 18, 2019

Our beautiful Jorja went to Arliss and Arleen today. I saw it happen, I had been out of town for a couple of days, she was so happy to see me and go on our walk today. She even posed for the pictures, not always. Look at pacific humane @ Long Beach , WA and you will see info . All I can say I watched it, never braked, or slowed and keep going. Hit her straight on, she had a huge reflective collar on. Needless to say we are heartbroken

And you and Cliff can add that she was loved by all that met her, she never met a strange and was my walking group pup! We had many, but she was the favorite. she would run free and check on me as on our Belgium walks, but here, not just me but everybody! Jorja was named the Lady Pacers mascot.

There are no words to cover such a loss–and we join in grieving her loss with you. We remember when you got Jorja–she traveled around the world to join you in Belgium. She recently returned to the Pacific Northwest–now this. She celebrated life with you–all it meant for you and her. Thank you, for all you did for her.

Crossed Paws

~Its a Thing

Pretty Feet and Face

Does your Weimaraner cross their paws? I think most do and it is the most elegant looking pose. Don’t you agree?

Ahhhh

😘

I love to show her off!!! Besides beautiful, she is nice and she is fun! Add a touch of stubbornness and naughtiness and she’s a perfect Weimaraner through and through!

❤️

I took this photo of Maizie yesterday, so she is 7 years, 7 months old.

And, we love to show her off too! She is fabulous.

~With Maize

I thought it might be time for a new Maizie story.😊  (Livee X Blue 02.28.12)

My mother is 95—almost 96.  To say that Maizie adores her is an understatement!  Whenever we bring my mom to our house, we have to put Maizie out in the backyard and seat Mom in a chair so that mom is in a stable place before we let Maizie in to greet her!  The greeting (crying with excitement, whining, nibbling on Mom’s hands) goes on for a full 5 minutes until we tell Maizie that’s enough!  Mom always says, “I wish everybody was this happy to see me!”   


Last summer, we moved Mom from Independent Living to Memory Care in the same facility.  On a long day of packing her former apartment, we needed to eat dinner.   Mom was hungry, and so were we….and we had Maizie with us all day.  (We brought Maizie’s food)  Where can we go nearby where Maizie would be welcome?  Jerry went down to the restaurant in the building my mother lives in.  He told the Maitre d’, “We would like to eat here.  It’s been a long day for us all, but we have our dog with us.  Is she welcome here?”  The astute Maitre d’ looked at Jerry with a gleam in her eye but in a serious tone slowly asked him this question, “Can you say she is a Service Dog?”  Jerry picked up on that!  He and the Maitre d’ communicated with their eyes!  Jerry recited back, “Yes—I can say She is a Service Dog!


We seated ourselves with Maizie—against a window, away from other guests in the restaurant.  We kept her on a short leash.  She stayed lying down….although inching herself under the table in hopes of spillage!  She was a good girl.  Her only faux pas was a short bark at a new couple who walked in the door!  Yes, we can say:  SHE IS A SERVICE DOG!

Love from Linda, Jerry, Maizie and Grandma (as Maizie knows her)

Thank you for sharing this story with us. We think you have done amazing this with this fabulous girl. Maybe we ought to mention this now, Maize shares the exact same lineage as Gabriel (our Russian Connection).

The Russian Connection

Gabriel (Livee X Blue)

~Gabriel and her Puppies

The Website Link

It was some time ago when we first met Ignor and began discussing a potential export of the first Blue Weimaraner to Russia. Eventually–we worked out the details. Knowing the trip would be very difficult, we insisted on a courier. Igor was gracious enough to work out a plan–we met the courier in Boise at the airport in the middle of the night. (Haha) Now, several years later, Gabriel’s story continues. We know several of you who have pups out of Livee’s lineage are especially interest. So, we asked to share this with you.

We appreciate the opportunity to work with Igor and how he made this all come together on his end. It was no small thing–nothing we are willing to do regularly. This situation warranted all the extra effort.

Lexi

Lexi made it home! Bella is giving her a tour of the backyard.

It was love at first site! Doug said she did great. He thought she slept most of the trip. He offered her water but she didn’t want any. She has already had some water since being home.

You might remember we had shared that we had two Longhairs available for placement–both were a little older (about 12 weeks). We had given them each a name (you have to have a name at some point)–Lexi was known as Tilly. Her sister went to Florence, Oregon–she was initially called Harriet but now is known as Fiona.

We were happy to learn that both did well in their new placement. Bella (Livee X Blue) is teaching Lexi the ropes–giving her the grand tour.

Bella

~My Sweet Girl

I hope you are well. I got my beautiful Bella from Owyheestar back in April 2014. She is the love of my life. If I recall correctly Bella’s parents were Livee x Blue. Bella had a sister named Ruby who looks exactly like Bella. I sometimes wonder if they are twins. Bella is such a wonderful companion. Her personality is very sweet, calm and loving. We run together almost every morning.  

I used to have two weims (both passed away some time ago) and always knew I wanted a second. As I was visiting your website today I saw you have two longhairs available. I’ve always wanted a longhair. I was wondering if they were still available. I would be very interested in learning more about them. I can complete an application but thought the first step would be to see if they were still available.  

One quick story. Bella and I were hiking at Smith Rock State Park and came across another blue weim. We stopped and chatted and the owners said they also received their weim from you. Blue was the father but they had a different mother. I was so happy to run into another weim from Owyheestar.

At Eagle Crest –March 10th

Thanks so much!

There are quite a few OwyheeStar Weimaraners around the Pacific Northwest. It is always fun to have a chance encounter with another one. There is the group of Weimlovers who meet in Salem once a month–quite a few OwyheeStar’s typically are there.

We look forward to working with you as this process unfolds. Thanks for your loyalty.

Maizie has always been a teaser!  Here she is “talking” to us and trying to get our attention to play with her!🤣

The second video is the reaction to this video by my sister’s dogs in Texas as they watched/listened on her iPad!

~Injuries

Maybe you frequent Facebook and follow Luna, Tikka, and Maizie Weim. I know quite of few of you are connected via social media. Anyhow, not all that long ago–in mid-January Lunna tweaked a toe. I believe that is correct. So, we saw the photos of the various casts, etc.

Nancy reported –She broke one of her weight-bearing toes, not sure how…

Then news of Maize’s injury surfaced. (OMG)

Linda Writes –Yesterday at the Mary S. Young Dog Park, Maizie chased a ball—at high speed, thrown by the powerful toss of her Master with a Chuck-it. Coming after the ball too, was a large Labrador. They collided and Maizie got t-boned which broke her rib.😰. She is not feeling perky today. Gotta keep her quiet for a couple weeks. 🚫NO Squirrels.

We were sorry to hear about these injuries. The athletic Weimaraner sometimes finds trouble–even when they are being well-behaved.
