One Year Plus

Hello from Pocatello, Idaho

     ~Did someone say TREAT!

Dejah-754b71a1d14f (1)Here is Dejah Thoris (Mesquite x Stackhouse) at 1 year 2mo…and 84 lbs!  Her older sister by one year, Vizsla named Ayla, is 54 lbs. They eat the same amount of food but Ayla is an obsessive squirrel hunter who will focus on the task for hours while Dejah comes back in the house after 30 minutes to sit on the couch with me.
We are loving our very big puppy!

Thank you, both for thinking of us with this fabulous photo and the news about Dejah. I think Dejah knows her role within the family structure.

Happy Birthday

Dejah Thoris is 1-year old…all 80lbs of her!  And she was the smallest of her litter (Mesquite X Stackhouse).
She loves when we spend weekends working in the yard.

The Naughtiest

Guess who’s birthday it is!

IMG_4448
Roy boy the Weim! I can’t believe Roy is TWO! (On 5/20) He is such a light in our lives even though he is such a hand full. Would not trade him for anything, we love our snuggly boy!
54723272525__03208A1D-8675-43EE-A9A6-714C1E26F123Roy is doing great! We recently just got over a case of the swimmers tail, we can’t keep him out of the water! And having a full tail probably contributed to that. Was so weird to see him not be able to wag his tail because he is always wagging that thing!
Still having aggression issues on a leash but I feel like he is getting better… he does wear a muzzle in congested areas. He’s stronger than I am and people coming at him that he doesn’t know makes him anxious. Better safe than sorry, I don’t want anything to happen.
Some dogs choose to fight. Others opt for flight, and unfortunately, all 75 lbs of Roy chooses to fight.   The inside guests in his space issue have gone away, he now loves guests. Off-leash and outdoors he’s totally fine.

We are heading to the beach this weekend for his birthday weekend at his favorite place! He literally goes crazy and into a frenzy at the sight of the sandy beaches.

Weekend Events

On Roy’s Birthday

     ~ We Got Engaged!

Roy is two this weekend and Nicholas and I are ENGAGED!

Breeder’s Note

More news about Roy soon; however, we stop to celebrate this fantastic event. Congratulations to a fabulous couple. Thank you, for keeping us apprised on Roy and all his antics. We truly appreciate it. Dear Readers–watch for the update. It is coming soon!

Dejah Thoris

Happy New Year!

~No More tiny Girl!

Zimmerly's Dejah
Well our little girl, Dejah Thoris, has grown BIG. Are you sure she isn’t a Great Dane?  She started out as the smallest dog in the litter! She now outweighs her big sister!  We think she stays inside and eats all the food while Ayla goes out hunting and running around in the backyard. They love to snuggle by the fire!
I think I remember Kaiser being the big boy of the litter!  I joke about the Great Dane because I have had three in my past life…wanted another one but my husband said absolutely not. My daughter joked that Dejah is disguising as a Great Dane!
We absolutely love her! She rules the house!  She is still learning the difference between her toys and other good things to chew up (like my husband’s wallet and credit cards!)  we can never be mad at her too long because she is so cute!!!!

Breeder Comment

Thank you, for remembering us. The two make a striking couple of co-conspirators looking innocent fireside.

We are often asked to predict the adult size of the Weimaraner. We can make an educated guess, but as you well see, things don’t always go the way they seem. :O)

Maggie

Celebrating Four Years

Santa Maggie.

Hard to believe Maggie turned 4 in December!  Thought we would send some photos of her so you could see how adorable she is.

Maggie found Elfie!

We are still amazed by her awesome personality and spunky spirit.  She keeps us young–but she has truly been one of the best dogs we have ever had!  Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Years!

Dear Phil and Gretchen–we appreciate you folks thinking about us. It looks like Maggie is enjoying life and that she helped make Christmas a lot of fun. Yes, we love her photos. We always enjoy hearing about Maggie and seeing her photos–as do others.

Kaizer

First Snow

     ~Yum

Kaizer1239a
No Snow Here

Kaizer experienced his first snow this last week, he had to stop almost every 20 feet on walks to stop and take a bite of it.  it was very comical to watch him wipe out repeatedly when he would try to chase his ball outside.

Christmas With the Gray Ghost

Surprisingly he didn’t destroy the tree or eat any ornaments and only once did I catch him proudly walking around with one of the wrapped gifts in his mouth.  when it came time to open his little gift he attacked with such ferocity that all the camera could catch was a blur.  Hope you all had a very merry Christmas and a Happy new year!

Breeder Comment

Isn’t it interesting he has his gift? You did well to capture a blurred photo. Thanks! There were several Facebook Posts where the Weimaraner got their present–didn’t touch the others. Then too–there were rumors of those who pilfered without preference at the tree. Some liking to unwrap the gifts more than anything. Others left the tree alone but not by choice.

We have not heard of any Weims eating Christmas Tree Limbs or goodies that sent them to the Emergency. For that, we are exceedingly glad. The fact the young Kaiser is doing so well speaks volumes about your work with him. Keep it up! We look forward to reading about his birding experience. Thanks for thinking of us!

Service Dog

It’s official. 

Porsche Service Dog
Porsche is now a Service Dog, special Springfield Police
Department License and all.  We are as proud of her as we would be if
she won a National title.
Thanks Owyheestar for breeding such a great
dog, and Northwest Law Dogs for getting her training on track.  Although
her magic act making human cookies disappear leaves a little bit to be
desired.  She likes zucchini bread, too.

Breeder Comment

Let’s all send JuneAnn Kudos! The Service Dog Status is no small thing to achieve–regardless of the breed. Jan Magnuson so kindly wrote us about the Service Dog vs. the Therapy Dog —click here to read her explanation.

It is excellent that Porche can join JuneAnn wherever and whenever needed. As to the human-cookie snatching is a Weimar Thing. Zucchini bread is equally delicious if reachable. Those living with the Weimaraner soon learn that obedience might follow a zig-zag line previously not understood. The model citizen’s nose is both useful (for tracking game, finding sheds, and locating truffles) but serves as a magnet too! When coupled with their keen manipulative behavior, finding a way to garner the not Weim snack is not too hard.

Our Naughty Weim

Roy boy is doing well!

~He is pure muscle and sass.

Roy4
He has a few aggressive tendencies, on a leash and when anyone enters our house without a proper introduction he will go after someone. Off leash he is totally fine and friendly.  I am unsure of why he’s decided to be so naughty on leash and over the house as we socialized so much! Parks and camping and family gatherings all the time!
Roy8He is so sweet and loving to us, like putty in our hands he is and to everyone else he knows and loves. We wouldn’t trade him for the work he is such a character!
Although his brother, on the other hand, would gladly trade him 😉 Zeus is old and can’t keep up with Roy for too long!

Two Years

With Ringo

Today is my dog Ringo’s 2nd birthday! I am routinely shocked and amazed that the creature greeting me at the door and sleeping on my sofa is my dog. We have a dog. When did this happen?? In honor of his birthday, here are some links to several guest submissions I shared to his breeder’s blog: And Then There Was More Ringo At Lake Michigan Happy Birthday, Ringo! Get your paws off the counter!

Breeder Comment

Ringo lives in Michigan. No, we don’t sell many Weimaraners to the midwest or the east coast. A few extraordinary people have convinced us on occasion to do so. These people tend to fly into Boise and to carry the puppy home as their carryon. Ringo began his journey in this manner.

He has been on our blog several times. We thank his family for making that happen. He is one of the special requests–having the undocked tail. So, his early beginning was unique in many ways. Yesterday, he turned two years. He continues to live the good life, and for this we are ecstatic.
