Cookies and Rosie
I made cookies this evening. Rosie is not supposed to be in the kitchen. Note where she is. She is just WAITING for me to go back to binge-watching West Wing so she can sneak in and eat the entire batch. Pain in the butt.
She knows I know, too. That is why she is refusing to look at me in the second picture.
I always say if you are looking for a perfect dog–and you define perfect as one who would never manipulate or trick you, keep looking. The Weimaraner is not for you. People who have other breeds imagine that you could just get after them and the behavior will stop. They don’t understand at all.
Weimlovers are those who enjoy the antics for the most part. Some actually encourage them a bit too much. To us it is laughable that they divert their eyes and make certain faces–it is human-like. They hook our heart in ways we could never imagine happening, and there is no explanation. Even we can laugh at ourselves and mostly at the Weimar antics. Rosie is great! Many of us can identify with the missing pan of cookies; the pot roast went missing, etc. Despite the fact that the Weimar is middle age, this situation doesn’t change. Obedience is relegated to the leash, the recall, and other primary disciplines.
Speaking of Loyalty
Many of our OwyheeStar clients seem to achieve great things. For example, Jaime won the 2015 Road Race this year. Click Here to see more on his Facebook Page. We share this little snapshot that Jaime posted (on Facebook) to thank all their supporters. We are so proud of Jaime’s achievement–this is only one of many!
Mary Needs Our Vote
Mary has a beautiful heart wrapped in model-quality looks. If you read about her, you will see she works with some of the most special cancer victims–the youngest of all. Her profession and her focus show her true heart. Nonetheless, she, like us, shares the love of the Weimaraner. I am hoping you will take a moment and vote for her. She has steadily remained seventh in the competition, but it is winding down. She must reach the fifth position to go on to the next segment of the competition.

Weimaraners are certainly a joy and challenge to raise. They are regal, fiercely loyal, majestic and can be quite stubborn when they want to be. If you want a dog who will want to be by your side every chance they get (yes, even when you want to go to the bathroom!), a Weim would be perfect. 🙂 They have quite the personalities and bring such joy to their owner’s lives and those around them.
We had our male Weim, Connor, for about 3.5 years before we decided to get a second. We were able to take home our second Weim, Ayla, in January of 2012. Shela was sure to go out of her way to answer any questions and provide lovely updates as Midge was progressing with her labor and then after she had her pups. Ayla is quite different than Connor in that she is more stubborn, calm, and more mischievous.
Weimaraners are the perfect companion for our family and we are glad we chose this breed.
