Meeting

~Allie’s New GSP Pup

Here is some pictures of introducing a new family member. Some of these are Skye and some are Haze and then there is my old man Aussie. They are all being introduced to Allie’s new puppy GSP.

They all get along. Haze is the one looking away trying to show Sparta GSP to watch for birds! Skye is sharing her toys nicely with the puppy by dropping them and teasing her to even dare to try to get it! Keller (Aussie) Sparta things he is a fluffy chew toy. ~ Jean

It is fabulous to see the OwyheeStar Weims being so polite with Allie’s new puppy. You have done great things with these girls–we thank you!

OwyheeSTARS and STRIPES!!

I have a title for your blog! OwyheeSTARS and STRIPES!! Not sure if there is anything to the dark stripe on the weim but Hazes is very prevalent. Just a thought don’t know if you have other dogs out there like this or not.

I think that with the blue color this is more noticeable. There is typically a different pattern down the backbone–and some variation in color. As the Weimaraner ages, this is also true across the crown of their head.

What Could Be Better?

Kobey and Miss Mavery.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that my family and I may be looking for another Weimaraner. We are not looking for a puppy though. After purchasing our sweet Kobey from you about 3.5 years ago. We have added a human addition 🙂 Kobey is absolutely amazing with her 🙂

I have been wanting to find a grown friend for kobey because we have a little bit of land here and he loves other dogs so much. Not sure I want a puppy again though. So just wanted to let you know just Incase you here of a weimaraner in need of a new forever home. Not picky as long as the dog would do well with kids and of course another dog. A smaller female would be ideal but not necessary. Thanks in advance for keeping me in mind if you here of a friend for my doggy 🙂 Mandie in McMinnville Oregon

We might have something that would work for you. Of course, when you talk about incorporating an older Weimaraner into the family, it requires careful planning. We will be back to again, soon.

What Easter

~Looks Like to Some of Us!

Special Thanks to Patti (Henry’s Mama) for sharing this photo with us!

We sincerely hope your Easter Sunday is spectacular. We are sure you will enjoy seeing Easter Bunny Henry as much as we did.

PS: Patti has also promised photos of Henry from his Nosework. She says he got a 3/4–honestly, I am not sure what that means but possibly we will learn more. So, we can look forward to more lovely photos of Henry.

A Natural

Extremely Nosey

   ~In a Good Way

Bien's Henry_155416

I didn’ t realize that Henry has only been learning scent-work since March.  We got involved because being an energetic, 3-year-old Weim, with a flair for being extreme nosey, it seemed to be fit.  Also, I  found the science behind a dogs nose fascinating.

What We Accomplished

Henry has completed Level 1, 2, 3 and working in level 4.  More than anything though, it has been an experience for me!   I have learned more about myself in the last few months and for that, I am most grateful to my handsome Blue boy.  Scentwork is a team trust sport.

Your dog knows what to do, however until dogs and humans can speak the same language, the sport is much more about learning patience, watching your dogs every move, and even more important, trust.   We have had good trials and not so good, one thing is certain Henry loves this sport and so do I.  We take away something new from each practice or trial.  We figure a way through false alerts and keep rewarding the sourced odor.

Henry’s hard work has left us with 3 titles, Level 1 and 2 C-WAGS, Level 1 ABC games, Noteworthy, in our seemingly short period of time.  I am very  lucky to have Henry enjoy this sport as much as I do.  It’s a special bond with a Weimaraner, I’m finding out truly how extraordinary Henry is.  Thank-you Cliff and Shela!!

We are happy to hear about your continued success. Congratulations to you Patti–what a great team the two of you make. Fun–that is something that is so important. If you are having a good time more than likely, the Weimaraner is as well. At least in Henry’s case, this seems to be his element. Keep up the good work!

Taking to the Water

Thought you’d like to see a short video. Freyja really loves the water. She’s on the right trying to take the stick away from Odin…lol. She’s a love!! Have a great day😊

In honor of Sunday shortness, let’s enjoy the moment’s success. We have been promised a detailed report/story. We could not wait to post this on the blog. Isn’t he adorable?

Surprize

Parcel

    ~From Fellig

Fellig Parcel-6

Fellig Parcel-5In all the flurry of yesterday, the mail arrived. The yellow parcel gave me a clue right from the start that it was something spectacular. The bump as well as the return address another clue.

A lovely commissioned Blue Weimaraner ‘Fellig’ pin. Isn’t it just adorable? What else would I expect from the extraordinarily talented Fellig Mama–Jill.

Thank you, Fellig and Jill for the lovely crafted pin. I am speechless!

Also–you might note that Fellig’s Mama was the lovely Zula Blue. She is retired–I am hoping to find her the perfect Golden Year Placement where she gets lavished with the good stuff. If you happen to be seriously interested in her, please drop me an Email. It would be in her best interest and we are looking for a win-win situation. Thanks!

Skye and Haze

You might remember reading about Skye and Haze a few days ago–Part One of the Three Part Series. Then Part Two featured Skye. Here is the final segment featuring the lovely Haze. It is good news that there are not two dominant (run-the-show) girls.

About Nancy’s Haze

        ~ Part Three

IMG_8148 (1)Haze is very submissive and larger.  She weighs about 70 pounds.  Hazey loves to hunt… her instincts are incredible.  She will track the smallest feather on the ground.  She stalks and catches birds… woodpeckers on our decks, turkeys in the yard. It’s too bad we aren’t people that hunt with dogs!!

 

Haze competes in Rally as well and also is working on completing her Excellent title by this summer.

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

Skye & Haze

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 and Haze3

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.

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.
