Berkley

~ How About This?!?

Breeder Comment

Here’s a way to exercise your Weimaraner and to have a ton of fun too–unless you end up on the ground.

These two are amazing.

Taking Shelter

Sucia and Patos are taking shelter in place rules to heart…..in this case, on the same Kong bed. May all of us 2-leggeds stay patient and safe and healthy and enjoy the comfort that our OwyheeStar Weimaraners can provide.

We are happy to two these two sweet girls are keeping each other company. I am sure they don’t mind the rules too much–stay safe.

Berkley

~ At Two-Years

Hope you and your readers enjoy these fun shots and videos of Berkley, our big two year old. She’s so much fun.

This when we went camping at Lake Kachess. Stephan would take her on the paddle board and say, “where’s Amanda” and she would jump ship and swim to me…2 times a day, in addition to a lot of fetch!

Enjoy! — Amanda

What a fabulous swimming Weimaraner. We love seeing the fur family member in the middle of family events. Thank you!

Jedi

Since today (7/13) is Jedi’s birthday I thought I’d share this with you. We had a baby in May, Owen. Owen and Jedi are taking to each other very well! Jedi follows me all over the house when I’m holding Owen. 🙂

There have been so many changes since you brought home Jedi. It seems like yesterday he was in your wedding photos. What a grand job you have done with him.

Enzo in Portland

~ with Jedi

It has been quite sometime since I reached out. As you know life has been crazy busy but good.

I was recently in Portland over Easter holiday with Katie, Justin, & Jedi. I just wanted to share a couple of the photos. It is really hard to get good photos of both of them together. Enzo and Jedi play great together. 

FYI Enzo is doing great in life.

He has been such a joy to have in our life. We go on walks almost everyday and on the weekends we usually go on hikes when weather permits which he loves. Anyway I know it’s not much but just wanted to let you know.

It was great that Enzo and Jedi got to meet up again, and of course, that you spent the Easter holiday with your family. Were it not for them we would never have met you. Quite a few of our applicants come direct referrals. Thanks to the Jedi’s parents for connecting us, too!

We genuinely appreciate you Emailing this wonderful update–the story of the two Weims, as well of news of Enzo.

House Rules

~Regarding–the Furniture

We try to have strict rules so all the furniture doesn’t get taken over by the dogs since both Jim and I are allergic to big loads of dog dander.

Our compromise is this:  One ancient sofa near the front hall is all theirs.  Sucia and Patos know that they can wrestle, scratch, jump on, chew toys and rough-house all they want on “their” old couch. The rule for the rest of the furniture is off-limits.  The one exception is this gray couch, and by invitation only,  in this picture is that it is off-limits, UNLESS it is covered with one of their fleece blankets.  they can only be on it when it is covered with one of these fleece blankets, usually when one of us is on the couch and want a pup to snuggle next to us.   Clearly, this was an afternoon that Sucia and Patos discovered that the fleece blankets were left on unattended…….😊

Every household has rules–spoken or unspoken. Sometimes we humans fail to keep our end of the bargain, and it is either confusing or allows bending the rules a bit. (Haha) Weims have a way of working things to their liking. We all know that. Don’t we adore them for their shrewdness — for the challenge they present? I think we can agree, we do.

Thank you, Megan, for this fabulous update. We truly appreciate it!

Berkley

Our Life Made Better

We wanted to share some new pictures of Berkley. We love her so much… Even though she still does very puppy-ish things! Bless you! Amanda

Breeder Comment

Wow–it is great to see some new photos of Berkley. There is nothing that makes us happier when it comes to the Weimaraners than seeing the fabulous life they are leading — being included in activities as well as being an integral part of the family. Thank you ever so much.

Berkley

     ~ Talks about Life

Is this what you are looking for?

Sometimes humans need help. Woof! There is all that housework. Then too, they cannot find their stuff. Speaking of stuff–they cannot seem to keep track of their glasses.

I recently read a post where a Weimar back East was involved with the glasses thing. Yes, I help find them. Sometimes we contemplate the complexities of life together. The biggest job I have is keeping a confidence–I think that is sometimes called a secret. I keep all kind of private stuff private. I am really good at listening –I never judge my humans. 

Breeder Comment

We understand that taking care of a family is a big job. What more can we say? Thanks for all your hard work, Berkley.

The Time Change

It’s Exhausting

     ~ Don’t You Agree

Berkley here, “I can’t keep my eyes open, can you?”

The time change is tough on human and the Weimar. There have been a lot of cute posts about us Weims not cooperating with the change in schedule, but seriously, what do you expect? We manage a lot of details within the household. Being on time is essential–when it comes to eating, going certain places, the arrival of the humans, and never more than at our bedtime. So, what’s up with this time thing?

Thanks to Berkley and her family. They always send us great videos and photos. We truly appreciate them. There were other family photos, but this one–don’t you agree? She lives the life that means she is a part of the family–whatever they are doing you see Berkley is involved. We love that!

The Stackhouse Sisters

Sucia and Patos

     ~Part Three

IMG_5132One challenging part was that Patos was so into her big sister, that it didn’t seem like I had the same connection with her that I did with Sucia as a puppy.  Patos would rarely make eye contact with us but instead would go dashing off to find Sucia.  We just hung in there and hoped that eventually, the loving, owner-connected weim might appear.  Magically, it did!

Just in the past few months, around the time she turned one, we have noticed that Patos is spending chunks of the day leaving Sucia alone, and will purposely seek us out for attention and cuddling and makes communicating eye contact all the time.  Every evening is a cuddling session with one of us on the dog-approved couch.  Not sure what brought about the change, but it is wonderful.  Now our home has two loving, silly, fun, intelligent Weimaraners!

Patos_4450It has been a joy to take them to my island cabin and let them run free on the property.  At the cabin, sticks/small logs are the Thing of the Day.  They have a ball exhausting themselves, running free in the fields and woods around the cabin.   And then they come and collapse on the warm deck for the best naps ever.  🙂  Most days there also included a trip to the lakes for swimming while retrieving tennis balls.  What could be better?
Thanks again to both you and Cliff for being such amazing stewards of this breed!

We are so happy to have the lengthy report about the two Stackhouse-sired sisters. Both Cindee and Livee have retired. We kept Dahlia and Bee out of Livee and Stackhouse. So far, we have never had a litter from either of these girls. It was not for lack of trying. Deja Vu (Ginger X Blue) has produced four puppies. Ginger is a littermate to Cindee.

The co-dependent behavior you experienced it not all that strange. You did the right thing. Just hang in there, and eventually, the newest addition will come around and bond. It wasn’t so much about anything other than the almost twin-like connection. You are fantastic Weim parents.
