News From Washington State
Hi Guys, just wanted to give a quick update on Reznor. Everything is going great & we are about to head out on another road trip down to Oregon & California to visit our Family.
There is a Seahawks 12 man flag, a “cascadia”/Doug fir flag, the 3 state flags act as his passport stamps for all of the states he’s visited & of course there is an OwyheeStar patch & his birthday patch so he can show off where he came from:)We get plenty of compliments on it & I think he is proud to walk around in itAll of the backwards “И”’s are a nod to my favorite band nine inch nails (NIИ) & artist Trent Reznor whom he is named after.Hope all is well with you & Cliff. Thanks, AnthonyOh and my wife’s fave patch
I guess it’s fair to say that Winston is obsessed with me (or my shoes?) 😃
As you see him here with his nose in my slipper. It is not just my shoes, Winston is obsessed with my husband’s vest pocket and such–really anything that belongs to us.

This is a funny photo. Winston adores you and anything that might pick up your scent. What a sweet boy.
~ Hello Detroit
We made the move to Detroit, Michigan from California early in his life and he quickly adapted to snow and weather. In fact, he truly loves snow he can chase/catch snowballs for hours if we let him. When the summer heat gets the best of him, he jumps in the water and fetches anything we throw out there (a twig, a ball, etc). He is a strong and very graceful swimmer. Along with all his athletic abilities, he is a cuddler, and never quite adapted to crate life since he always wanted to be in bed with us. So we compromised and he now takes up the majority of our cal king bed, we don’t complain though. We are truly blown away by his sweet and gentle demeanor and could not ask for a better addition to our little family.

To the Park
We reported how excellent he travels. We don’t have to be driving to California–the park will do. He gets in the truck to wait for us. His excitement brimming with enthusiasm.
Of course, we do not keep him waiting too long. Then it is off to one of his favorite places– 😉
We can see Reznor enjoys this park–a lot! Thank you, for being such wonderful Weim parents. We especially appreciate the update.
Hello Shela & Cliff, sorry it’s been so long since the last update. Our sweet Reznor is a little over 2 years now & is a healthy happy big goofy boy. We are so happy you brought him into our lives. He has been through 2 road trips down to California to visit with his extended family & does great on the road. His favorite thing to do is go to Marymoor Park which is a Disneyland for Dogs. He loves to be there to swim, play catch, run around ask humans for treats & pretty much ignore all the other dogs;)
Our Weimar Calendar
We decided to make a Reznor calendar this year as we got tired of not enough Weimaraners on other dog calendars & certainly not enough Blue Weims!So now we get to enjoy his face every day/week/month of the year😍We hope you guys are doing well & I’ll try not to wait so long until the next update. Thanks, Anthony, Michelle & Rez
~Now he’s a California Boy
Our perfect shy little puppy is anything but shy any longer! Alder will approach almost anyone or anything for some play time. After living in Oregon for the first few months, we moved to Southern California! Alder quickly adjusted. Let’s just say we can’t keep him out of the ocean, and if he is out, then he is rolling in the sand which is wonderful for our home and cars.
Being a household dog means he never ceases to entertain us. He has two chihuahua siblings and frankly, our 85 lb monster thinks he’s the same size as his little buddies. He makes this clear while trying to sit on our laps in the car, or by sleeping on their tiny beds. All in all, we wouldn’t trade our perfect pup for anything!
I just thought we should email you to let you how happy my family and I are to have found you guys. It was our good fortune because we got our beautiful and the most perfect dog from you–Alder. I included some pictures in case you guys wanted to see how much he’s grown! He loves to cuddle, play at the beach, and fetch pretty much anything. We could not be happier.
We are ever so happy to receive news of Alder. We are also especially delighted to hear your lap Weim experience. It sounds like Alder enjoying his essential role within the family. How excellent that he is a perfect fit for your family. Thanks for remembering us.
You can not have, just throw.
Oh, and have a Mohawk.
Maybe you noticed the above Facebook post. For all those wondering about the Longhair; I suppose many might view this as over-the-top. Nevertheless, the Longhair addict has been known to indulge in activities not available to those having the traditional smooth coat. Now, I can hear some of you saying, “Thank God!” Regardless, it is all in fun. Goldee has been a Superstar–she models professionally but also for Grandma Terri Jacobson who has provided countless high-quality photos that we were able to share on our blog. Thank you, Grandma Terri!
What did I mean by indulging other than combing the occasional Mohawk? How about the braid that Holly and Goldee shared like twins? Click here to see that slideshow. It is all in fun. The non-longhair crowd imagines this hair is different than the reality. It doesn’t mean there is not a bit more grooming; however, with the grooming it is manageable. There is not the pile of hair along the woodwork, nor is the yellow oil stain on the wall. Neither is a thing with this breed. Your clothing, the furniture, and whatnot are not covered with hair. Even the traditional coat sheds, so yes, you can find hair. Nevertheless, in comparison with other breeds, I think we can call it nominal.
The toe fluff can be groomed if you want to get away from the extra tracking effect. Nothing can save you from the Weimaraner that chooses the mud bath. What can I say? That requires at least a rinsing. We have known people who get their Longhair shaved for the summer–yes, the hair comes back. And just in case you didn’t know, there is a double coat–the thick undercoat with the feathering that can vary in the amount and length. A smooth coat who carries the DNA marker for the Longhair might have the double-coat with not real feathering. Or they may have a little wavy hair down their back, on their tail, etc.
You cannot brush the hair up into a Mohawk style or braid it unless they are a true Longhair. Some celebrate these events and love the wavy ears. Toe hair gets photographed. Who knew, it would be a thing? While some detest what many call the Other Weimaraner, the number of fans continue to grow. It is a fascinating phenomenon.
Goldee’s note about her Grammy’s Garden adventure!!
Every week we load up into the back of the Subaru and go to our most favorite place in the world, Grammy’s acre. There’s a routine, dad does a five point turn to back into the driveway, we bark and make all kinds of ruckus, the Grammy’s open the drive way and swiftly get out of the way while mom opens the back hatch and we ZOOM out of the car and into the backyard.
The first stop is always the fresh kiddie pools that are poured just for us to splash and enjoy. Next up laps around the acre, make sure everything is still in place and try to spy all of the new garden trinkets the Grammys have added. And then it’s time for fetch. Mom and Dad know the drill, each armed with a Chuck It and Maverick and Autzen go back and forth around the acre chasing their balls. I prefer to stick to my heritage and hunt all of the small critters that are taunting me from the fence line and the chickens – oh the chickens!!! But we will leave that for another day, because today I want to tell you all about the delicious fresh veggies my Grammys have planted just for us!
Our Barrels Filled to the Brim
We each have our own half wine barrels planted to the brim with our favorite veggies, carrots!! But that doesn’t stop us from helping ourselves to the fresh beans growing on the fence line or Maverick jumping into the small veggie garden to help himself.
Emma’s Apple Tree
The Acre is also home to Emma’s Apple tree, Emma’s the girl that brought me into my mom and dad’s life. Now I get to enjoy the apples Emma once spent her summers eating-that really makes my mom happy!
Exhausted We Head For Home
After a few hours of playing and getting to enjoy our fresh fruits and veggies we say our good byes, get leashed up and wait for mom and dad to help us into the car – it’s a big jump after such an exhausting afternoon.
Snitching Tomatoes From My Other Grammy
(This ones from our other Grammy, I helped myself to about four tomatoes before dad hide the planter inside her craft room!!)I hope all of my Weim friends siblings and half siblings get the same royal, fresh treatment at their Grammy’s as we get at ours!
