Pushkin and Zula Blue

     ~Zula Claimed the fireside bed

20181101_081343Rain has finally come to the Willamette Valley. The temperatures in the morning are cooler and daylight takes its time in arriving. Each of the dogs got a new pillow and miss Zula immediately claimed the one right in front of the fireplace. I do enjoy seeing pictures of her pups on your blog.

~ Bed is a Bed is a Bed

20181101_084601Pushkin and I are almost done with the advanced obedience class. We will be working on sharpening his skills over the holidays and hopefully will take the CGC test after the holidays. He is a natural at agility. The only problem we have at this point is getting him to slow down enough for me to keep up with him. He is fearless when it comes to trying something new.

We think it is extraordinary that Pushkin is fearless with new things. I think it is fair to say, that many a Weim person wishes their friend was open to new things. (Haha)

We look forward to hearing more about the AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test and the agility work. Thank you, for your tireless training efforts–and for the fabulous Golden Year Home for Miss Zula. We are happy to see her warming her bones.

Hummingbirds

Taunting the Weim

  ~or Nector Seeking

I thought you might enjoy the picture of Pushkin. The hummingbirds sit in the large rose bush at the end of the patio and Push can see them through the sliding glass door. He seems to think that he could catch them if I would only let him out.

20180926_091304I have to clean the door daily with all the dog prints on it.

We started advanced obedience class this week. Part of the class is also agility. Push loves the tunnels, the table, and the plank. Next week we shall see if he will jump through the hoop. Great dog.

BTW ZooBoo is doing well

20180927_065423Thank you, Marie, for the fun update on the two Weims. We are happy with all you are doing. Keep up the effort–it pays huge dividends.

Smelly

ZooBoo

20180905_082237This sad looking “stinky” Weim learned a valid lesson this morning. If you roll in aged deer poo you get a bath. No luxury of warm water as she was not allowed in the house so bath was cold water from the hose. We shall see if she remembers the lesson😊20180905_082302

I guess your Mama doesn’t appreciate ‘Deer Pooh Perfume.’ We are so happy for you Zula Blue (now known more affectionately as ‘ZooBoo’. What a good life you have my pretty girl.

And, Short Messages

Seriously, it takes about a paragraph to make a fabulous blog. Sometimes I get multiple Emails, and I have to find a way to pull things together into a succinct storyline. Other times there is a one-liner. Despite the challenges, each sentiment is much appreciated.

From Rod

Coil's Colt and Winnie_083300Thought I would pass on a picture of Colt and Winnie to you.  Both Weimaraners were bought from you.  Beautiful dogs… ~ Rod

From Kirstin

Boyd's Desi_nI appreciate you. Desi has been a blessing to us daily. Can’t imagine the number of people who feel thankful and blessed by the hard work of you and Cliff.

We figured Kula must be old enough to drive now, so we got him and Pilikia a van to drive around….. Brent

This is not the first Weim Crime pair at the wheel. You might remember Ilsa and Indi the two Blue sisters who borrowed the camper while Mom and Dad went on vacation. Pilikia and Kula Bleu’s ride is pretty upscale, but the idea has not changed. Thanks for the fabulous share!

When Dinner’s Late

You Might have seen this Look

The Weimaraner likes routine. Even better, they like to be in control. Ilsa’s family remembered her bed but where is the dinner. Seriously, a late meal is never a popular event. Who can put on the miffed look better than a Weim?

They had to learn how to be adaptable. If not, there are a lot of these looks. They don’t like their crate moved; their schedule changed, etc. It is as if they say, “you humans don’t get it.”

Dusty-4356-BW-2We do suggest that despite the put-off pouting experience, it is important that they learn how to adapt to change. If not, then worse things than the evil-eye glare are sure to happen. We are not speaking of the typical Weim mischief. Nor the freak-out (separation anxiety induced) you forgot me acting out behavior. We are talking more about the I am going to make-you-pay-thing. Oh, yes it happens. Some of you know exactly of what we speak. Dusty says, “Woof.”

 

 

Ilsa

On the Edge

 

Anyone down for a little Hells Canyon jump? Ilsa was living on the edge!

Zimmerman's Pole Dangers8205_nIndi stayed home while Ilsa made the trip to this interesting location (near Culver, OR) with her papa. The sisters are quite a pair but apparently they can be seen separately on certain occasions. 12002056_10207643497916095_6838050307054098955_n

Four Years

Then The Two Blue Sisters

Zimmerman's Blue Girl

Thank You — For Adopting Me 

Four years ago we rescued this beautiful girl–a sister to our first OwyheeStar. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. When Cliff and Shela let us know they might get her back, we asked for the first chance to adopt her. We had met her and her mother on several occasions at the dog park, etc. It has been a beautiful, entertaining, and wacky journey.

Going Places

Ilsa and Indi

You might remember this from Facebook, or not. 25 Abandoned Places in Oregon has an interesting mix of locations. The photo above features the Zimmerman Family with their two OwyheeStar girls visiting #22

Here’s a pic of us and the weims at Opal creek! This is one if the 25 abandoned places in Oregon! Shela Nielsen , thought you would like this! We know this is not a great pic of Indy as she is out of frame and Ilsa is headed into the mine! 

Breeder’s Comment

Ilsa and Indi have been spotted nearly everywhere in and around the Portland area. They frequent the Oregon Coast and are known for the snow-escapades. The point is this family spends a lot of time together–the family includes the fur family members. We thank them for sharing so many great photos and adventures with us all. (Below are a few of the fun snapshots they have graciously shared with us all. Do you have something interesting to share?????

Weimar Winter Fun

Snow Fun

 

Apparently some Weims adore playing in the snow. Maybe they take after their humans. Ilsa and Indi are blue sisters. You won’t lose them in a snow storm.

We think you will enjoy the photos. We hope you have found a way to enjoy winter too!
