Griffey

It has been so long since we have reached out. Alex and I just wanted to update you on Griffey and as always say “Thank you” for such a special member of our family. 


We recently welcomed 2 new baby girls into our lives and Griffey is still adjusting as the older brother but starting to understand that there IS enough love to go around between all three of them (he is very much still a puppy himself). Griffey is the best running partner (Alex and I are training for a half marathon) and as we have learned over the past few years… he either gets a long run to start the morning or a solid 30-60 minutes of retrieving at the dog park and he is set for a “less” mischievous day…hah. Griffey is an amazingly loyal companion, always Sticking to our side when we are out hiking and scouting. He cuddles from 5pm at night and sleeps in longer than anyone else in the morning… he will even sneak into the guest room if someone is visiting and just to cuddle and nap a little longer. We Are blessed to have him.

Congratulations on the twin baby girls–what an event. I love that Griffey is doing well with all the changes. Most of all–thank you for updating us on Griffey. We are delighted, along with our readers. Thank you!

Sandwiched

~ Between Duchess and Diesel

Here is my great nephew enjoying the kids, Duchess got up since I reached for my phone. I told Christopher that he was a ‘Christopher’ sandwich with Weim bread, as a very loving 9 year old, he giggled and said “send a picture to my mom.”

Foster wasn’t too happy his best buddy was enjoying the company of another human but sleep in and this happens!

Breeder Comment

Well–I can understand your son (Foster) finding his cousin sandwiched thinking someone was being disloyal. (Haha) These two typically sandwich him–even though Duchess is your baby girl.

Rat Patrol Trophy

~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.

Goose Lake

~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!

Breeder Comment

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.

Into the Ball

~ 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.

Sitting

~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!

Summer Vacation

~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.

Change happened

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.

Duchess Swam

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!

Breeder Comment

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.

Shopping

~ AKA Counter surfing

The pumpkin pie guarded by the egg.

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”.

Porsche wants nothing to do with it.

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.

Breeder Comment

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.

A Service Dog

Porsche

~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

Breeder’s Comment

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!

Maggie

~ 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
