~The Look Says It All
1. Where Have You Been?
2. Why Are You Late?
3. We see the clock–lady.
Our Weimaraner can tell time–well, to them ten minutes maybe means nothing. But know when it is bedtime to the minute is a science.
Arliss and Jorga
~ Weimar Cousins
After sending Jorja’s Papa off to Montana, Arliss asked to take a vacation from his little brother and go to the beach with cousin Jorja. Of course, both mommy’s said sure. Tomorrow and Thursday we get to go on the beach walk with Jorja’s mommy and other dogs.
Then on Friday meet a new friend Butters. ( Auntie. Eileen will try to send more pictures. ) Our friend’s mommy, Jeannie from Shasta, who visited me at Auntie Arleen’s when I was a puppy. I hope I remember her too. I go back home to mommy on Tuesday when Auntie goes on her first cruise.

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.
Thought I would pass on a picture of Colt and Winnie to you. Both Weimaraners were bought from you. Beautiful dogs… ~ Rod
I 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.
Jorja is loving up on her “interim” Mom, Emma. Arleen and Emma took care of her until she could make the journey to Belgium. She hasn’t seen Emma since she was 16 weeks old, but she remembered her. Jorja was a trouper, she made the 8 hrs flight from Brussels to Chicago, hopping into her crate with ease. Through customs in Chicago, back into her crate after a drink and potty break for the 6 hr. flight to Portland, OR. She was happy to see cousins Arliss (Arleen’s Blue), Auto and Izzy. She seems to have a crush on Arliss.
Jorja is happy and loving her new home 🏡. Her new favorite word is beach. She and I have started walking with a ladies walking group. She loves to run, greet people as well as other dogs. One lady calls her the new LB greeter. Not to forget the birds–she still loves them too.I am thrilled with her approach to the water. She also hasn’t been in the water since at Arleen’s when a puppy, but she is in it now! It is going well. We are home near family, she has adjusted. We are doing well.~Eileen
Happy #6 Birthday, Jorja!
Winnie Meets Colt
Here are a couple of pictures of Colt’s first interaction with Winnie.
We are not sure what her first impressions were.
“What is this?” “We drove all this way to meet this little blue upstart?” “I don’t think so.”
Despite what she is feeling at the moment, they will become inseparable.
- Meet up in a neutral location. Don’t just show up home with the new Weimaraner.
- Don’t let your emotions run amuck. If you are concerned, then the Weimaraner will be equally worried.
- Monitor things and give it time. The adjustment is tough.
- Make sure the resident Weimaraner gets as much if not more attention than the new baby. Bringing home the new puppy and displacing the original will not go well. They have been at the center of the universe for a while. Why should it change now?

Ah Jorga, you seem young to be having fatty tumor surgery. Of course, your Mama has firsthand experience with cancer. These pesky lumps the Weimar is prone to getting can be concerning. They are a more significant concern when they develop in particular areas–near a joint, etc.
People ask what causes them. No one can say for sure. Diet can be a factor–the right food benefits the Weimaraner’s overall health. The skin is the largest organ so to speak. Whether the growths should be removed is debatable and based on a case-to-case situation.
We are confident that Arleen and Arliss are ecstatic that Jorja and her Mama have moved from Belgium to the Pacific NW–much nearer. We heard it is beachfront property–what fun that should be for you Miss Jorga.
~ Beating The Heat
In Europe AC is not to be found, Jorja beats the heat in the morning when I open the north to south doors in the late evening and morning.
We are indeed thankful for Mr. Carrier’s invention–the air conditioner (A/C). I have to be honest; I am also grateful to live in America where we celebrate coolness in the middle of the hot summer either outside or hiding inside with the A/C going full blast.
Nonetheless, in cooler locations, people cope in the same way Jorga does–using cross-ventilation. Stay cool and be safe — the heat can be quite oppressive.
