The Blue’s Sisters
~ Part One
Skye & Haze will be 5 years old this year! Time has flown by with them,.. it seems like yesterday we were doing the puppy thing. They are spending most of their winter days lounging around the house… on the furniture of course! We take them out for a good run every day, even if they have to plow through the snow…. they look forward to their outdoor play time, and can’t wait for spring!
Competing and Winning Ribbons
Skye loves to compete in AKC Rally competitions and also AKC Nosework competitions. Haze competes in Rally as well and also is working on completing her Excellent title (like Skye) by this summer. Watch for more on Skye and Haze–coming soon to the blog.
We keep the girls in weekly classes at our dog training club to keep them socialized, and to give them something for their minds to work on. We are delighted with our pups and can’t imagine life without them! Blessings to you! ~ Jean & Nancy
Cliff and I are so very proud of all you two (or maybe we should say four) have achieved. It is no small thing. We know what a huge challenge this breed can bring. As you once explained to me Jean–AKC Rally is like Agility on Steriods. What more do we need to say?
Please watch for the two segments — one featuring Skye and the other Haze. Although they are rarely out of each other’s shadow, for a brief moment they will be a star on our blog. We think you will be interested to learn more about them.

Jan Reports on Willow
I have multiple water pans around my place for the dogs which I keep filled daily with fresh, clean water. However, Willow’s favorite place to drink is from the watering can on the porch, LOL! Funny Girl!
Haze and Sky Offer Help
“We got you covered Willow!”
We have water pans outside for the pups, but if there is a puddle, they would prefer it. Sadly, puddle water is risky. A bird can track a one-celled parasite in that water, and it will take off like wildfire. That is never a good thing.
Other options for drinking are many. Outdoors is always a good idea when it is seasonally possible. Many the Weimaraner who has holes in their lips–if you get my drift.
Haze and Skye
We try to take our girls everywhere with us.
This is a trip to Glacier we took last fall. We rented a cabin and the girls liked cabin camping! They love the water and hiking. We take them for rides in the car all the time and they especially like when we go to the coffee hut because they all have treats and Haze and Skye know that we are really there just so they get a treat, and coffee has nothing to do with it-remember always let the Weim think they know who is in charge at least that is what they think well most of the time they are-lol!!
Treasure Valley Tuesday
(Nampa, Idaho) Even Charlie Mae and Murphy are wondering WHY are we getting more of this snow!!
Meanwhile at OwyheeStar

Goofing off is Good!
Sunny is doing fine. Spoiled as ever eating roast chicken, and sleeping with his head on a pillow next to me. He’s certainly not a poster child for a dog training school, but we get along just fine. Now we are coming to the end of our busy season so we’ll both have more time for the beach and goofing off.
Yesterday we were at the park, and came across a memorial for a man at the park who had just passed away. This man was a known dog lover. Sunny went absolutely crazy running in circles around the memorial, and barking with his tail wagging. It was like this man’s spirit was playing with Sunny…..very very unusual! Can you imagine?
No wonder he is exhausted. He works–click here!
I’m a very happy person today. I haven’t found any safe place to take the dogs swimming until today. Willow is 3 and Ruger 4 so I was concerned I’d be dragging dogs into the water and then having them sink. Silvi (my first Weim) refused to swim but could float for 30 minutes. You can be proud and pass this on to Cliff please, their early training kicked in and they were swimming back to shore over and over again. Willow had to be brought in by her collar still but if I was in the water with her, Ruger came in by himself. I think this will happen pretty fast as he seems to like it and she’s fast getting content in the water.
Ruger rested on the way home, Willow watched the scenery. So different but they LOVE each other very much!
Sunday’s Blog featured Ellie at Quinn’s Pond near Boise, Idaho. This is a littermate to your Ruger. As you might remember, he was captured swimming (or water retrieving). Click here if you missed that blog or want to review it.
A Good Question!
Jean went away and Skye doesn’t understand why she must be gone. Who does?
Ok Dad, time to watch TV now right?!?! I’m sitting like you and everything!!!
Charlie Mae and Elle
Does anyone at your house tell time? Our Weims know when it is bedtime, mealtime and the general routine we keep. They are not happy about us not keeping on schedule. Evidently there is television time and place too. Murphy and Charlie Mae know their routine. They might know how to work things to their advantage too.
