~sniffed, grabbed –met its end.
Our Rat Patrol with their trophy. Norwich Terrier, Eliot, heard the rat. Weimaraner, Porsche sniffed it out, grabbed it, shook once, and dropped it. Eliot picked it up and finished the job with proud terrier shakes. Maybe we should take up Barn Hunt competition.
Best Regards, the Locklears
Looks like the tag-team netted a nice one. Thanks for this share, JuneAnn.
~Camping with Duchess & Co
We made a quick trip up to Goose Lake while our house was being shown this weekend. Duchess was a natural except she doesn’t like it when the cattle walk through our camp-that got her riled up, I wasn’t a fan either!
No fish were caught to Foster’s dismay, but all and all it was a good overnight trip despite the rain and cow pies at least they slept on the way home!
You know how we love seeing the Weims participate in family fun. Camping looks to be exhausting. (Haha) Thank you — for getting us this news that makes a lovely blog post. It is truly appreciated.
~ And Water, Too!
Diesel is so into the ball! He loves the water retrieve. Oh, and by the way, Duchess did well in the water too!
As always, my boy Foster is in the mix. He and the Weims–they are pretty much my life.
Yes, Duchess who is about six-months old now also swam. She loves the water. She is a natural.
We wish you lovely summer weather–and lots of opportunities to enjoy the water as well as the sunshine this summer.
~Among the Daisies
Porsche enjoys her backyard, sitting among the Daisies or catching her flying disk.
JuneAnn–it is great that she has a lovely backyard. Thanks!
~Can Mean a lot of things
You might remember that we picked up Duchess not all that long ago–and our Diesel was not all that thrilled with her arrival at first. He wasn’t bad, but his attitude said, “and I don’t think we need this.” So, we were off and running back to the Two-Weim family again, hoping that Diesel would fall in love with Duchess, too.
Fast Forward six-weeks
School is officially out. This is what I see as I leave for work–Foster and the two Weims snuggled in. This boy is not short on Weim snuggles!
We are getting out into the community, too! Since we got back the good results from the recent titer test (showing we were protected from the Parvovirus), we have gotten out and about. For one, we made it to the dog park, and I now have two really tired Weims.
Yes, Duchess will rule the roost, it is what it is. Scout and Diesel aren’t impressed where HER game of keep away with the ball 😂Well, here is the look that speaks volumes from our boy, Diesel.
I figured Duchess had already been swimming at your place. She took to the water naturally. Later, I learned that you didn’t have water in the pond, and this was her first water experience. Wow–and she swam, too!
We love hearing about Diesel and Duchess. It was especially sweet to learn that she is a natural in the water. Have a fun summer–Foster, has a job.
~ AKA Counter surfing
Although I do not recommend tempting a dog, most of the Weimaraners I have owned have been shoppers also known as counter surfers. Porsche was no exception until we got “The Sonic Egg”.
The egg is motion activated and blows a puff of air, which in Porsche’s case went into her face and startled her. If someone is looking for it, it was made to deter cats. A savvy clerk at PetSmart thought it might do the trick for us, and it did.

It is interesting that it deters Porsche. I am not sure it would work for every Weimaraner, but apparently, it does at JuneAnn’s home. I do read that folks are having a lot of problems with the unit. I hope they keep making them. I can see that they could be handy in several situations. Thank you, JuneAnn, for sharing this novel idea.
~In The Snow
In case you think a service dog’s life is all work and no play, here a couple of pictures of Porsche in the snow.
Our Willamette Valley snow is so wet Porsche looked like she was gathering ammo for a snowball fight. Her feet gave a whole new meaning to “snow” shoes.
Best regards, JuneAnn
We are so happy to hear that the amazing Porsche (your Service Dog) continues to do well–even in the snow. Thanks ever so much, JuneAnn!
~ We Celebrate 5 Years in December
Just wanted to send the yearly photos of our Maggie who turned 5 12/19. Still bringing us lots of happiness and joy! Our boys love to get her all riled up when they hide her ball. Too bad their hiding skills are no match for her nose!
We have also started to teach her how to find sheds. She is so smart! Anytime you say “let’s go” or “bird” or “duck” her ears perk right up. She still loves to cuddle with the cat. Phil and I can barely get our running shoes tied and she already is standing at the front door! The neighbors think it is pretty cool that we have her hold her own leash on our walks……Can’t imagine our lives without her.
One more thing….we take her collar off at night and in the morning we tell her to “go get her clothes” and she brings us her collar….She’s so much fun!
Hope all is well with you!Phil and Gretchen
Thank you, for another update on Maggie and her life with you. She looks so happy–glad you love her so much.
