Lu Enjoys Winter

~ Most Everyone is Ready for Spring

Searching for the ball

She adores racing around before the retrieving starts – making endless circles, just enjoying herself.

BTW, it looks almost looks like she’s pooping! – but no, that’s her tail!

But then it gets serious – she actually drives into the snow banks, finds the ball, comes out snorting snow – which of course makes her drop the ball and the whole process starts again.

March 6, 2019 –Here is the video Steve took this morning (snowing again!) of Lu searching for her ball in the snow. The snow has melted some, but you get the idea….


Reward at the end is napping on the heat vent. She’s perfected it!
personal note – snow has been lovely, but thanks, am done with winter right now!

Well, Lu is making the most of her snow experience. There is no lack of it in Sisters, Oregon this winter. You are not alone–many Pacific Northwest Locations have more snow than typical, and many folks are beyond ready for Spring’s arrival. Thank you, Sharyl, for this lovely post.

The Wait is Over

~Now This

Thank you Shela. I just can’t believe Stone has come into my life. He is so smart. Ringing the bells to go outside already! My friend came over to drill a piece of wood into the bottom of the backyard fence so Stone can’t escape and the sound freaked Stone out. He ran straight to Blue for protection. And Blue has been barking ferociously at EVERY passerby when we are outside in the backyard. I think he is protecting Stone. 
This little guy is the greatest gift. I mean look at those little eyes!

On this Daylight Savings Day, can I merely say how very appreciative I am to hear from you Victoria. It warms my heart.

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.

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.

We Are Busy

~ Ace of Clubs

Ace busy pruning my wisteria this morning 😬

Vaccine

The vet has agreed to administer the vaccines according to the Weimaraner protocol. He was prescribed an antibiotic for his eyes. We are hoping that his umbilical hernia will close by itself. I think it already looks smaller. His weight was 15 and 1/2 lbs. It seemed to me that he weighed a little more when we got him but he is eating, sleeping, playing and getting longer legs!! He is a beauty❣️

Diarrhea, Etc.

~ Not what I thought (whew)!

I just wanted to let you know that all is going very well despite a young puppy’s voracious appetite and sharp teeth!!I believe we are off to a solid start. We have completed the AKC registration and the registration for the microchip. We have adjusted the feedings to 1 cup 3x a day. Unfortunately Ace thinks he needs more. Lot’s more!!You know what happens to a dog when you cross that line. Yep! Diarrhea!! We tried listening to him and that’s what we got 🙃

Just set your mind at rest, I turned in a stool sample on Saturday and it was negative 😊

He is sitting and knows his name. Mostly responds to “Ace come” when called. A terrific pottier outside 👍🏻We are monitoring the umbilical hernia but are not concerned. His eye infections are cleared up but he has to finish 3 more days of the antibiotic.I hope all the rest of his litter mates are doing well❣️🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾

Thanks for the detailed updates –we are thrilled to hear that Ace is doing well. Yes, the last minute little hernia appears to be nothing of significance. I am glad you are not worried. Over the years, we have learned that doing as little as possible with these seems to be the best choice–only fix a larger one that is more risky.

We are glad you had the stool sample checked. With young pups it is always wise to check to be sure nothing more is going on–but you have this covered. It appears other folks are doing well–at least that is what we have heard.

Vaccine and the Weimar

~We recommend the Titer Test

Henri

You might wonder if we follow our own recommendation–we do. Henri is coming up on her sixteen-week birthday. She is slated to have the titer test done at the Idaho Veterinary Hospital in Nampa thanks to Dr. Calhoun.

Click Here to learn more about this inexpensive Titer Test option. This particular test is a relatively new option. I think Henri will be the first client to give it a try. We are very excited.

Here are some random (unedited) photos Christina and I managed to capture yesterday. After this, she will not fit into the cabinet. (OMG) Weimaraner pups grow so fast. As you can see she is not thrilled with her Prom Dress.

Name That Tune

Maizie has always been a teaser!  Here she is “talking” to us and trying to get our attention to play with her!🤣

The second video is the reaction to this video by my sister’s dogs in Texas as they watched/listened on her iPad!
🤣

Thanks for the insight into Stone’s life as well as the great story of Blue’s ownership. Not every situation is going to come together so quickly. We are happy for you, Stone, and Blue. Thanks!

Mylo

~ Makes Two

Mylo is growing as time is flying by.  It’s hard to believe he’s been with us for 2 months already.  He’s such a smart, loveable boy!  As you can see, he loves his big brother Koda and also his humans!  I hope you are both doing well and wanted to thank you again for sharing these adorable boys with our family.  

Thanks, Chris

Breeder Comment

It is excellent to hear that Mylo is much-loved and doing well. Thanks for these adorable photos of your two OwyheeStars.

Stone

~That Makes Us A Two Weim Family

Stone and Blue are getting to know each other. Blue refuses to share his treats or toys and makes this very clear to Stone.

But, at the end of the day, they find comfort in snuggling together. We’ve had great progress with potty training in three days, answering to commands like Come and Stay but not so much with the crate. Stone cries and cries at night until he is too tired and then starts up again after a wee rest. Needless to say, he is adored.

You are doing fabulous Victoria–keep it up! We look forward to hearing how things unfold over time.

~Office Help

All is well.  All systems are working and we have had only one accident (my fault), otherwise, she’s going outside regularly. She does well at the office and actually asked to go out!

P.S. please put me down for a blue female with the tail.  Let me know when I need to send a deposit.

Breeder Comment

First, we want to thank Steve for being such a fantastic Weimlover. Now, some of you might wonder he what he means when he says, “with a tail.” Don’t all Weims have a tail? Yes, they do.

Steve means he wants an undocked tail on his next pup–which is what this one has by request. We have a particular protocol we follow for this type of request. For one thing, the deposit is sizeable–because if the person happens to walk away, then finding another home for the pup is an arduous task. It can be done, but it requires a lot of extra work. Therefore, we need more to get on the Wait List for the undocked tail, as well as to reserve such a puppy. Once the decision has been made, as about one-week, then docking the tail also becomes more involved.
