~No Matter How You Dress
We wish you a special blessing on this celebrated Sunday!
The photos were taken of Greta (OwyheeStar’s No Regrets) the week of Easter Sunday 2012. The lovely Gray Ghost wearing the bow tie is an OwyheeStar. His name is Miles (Livee X Blue).
Duties include the neverending list of things such as lap warming. My latest achievement is making sure I spread Christmas Cheer.
Just What We Need
Rupert’ favorite time of the year 🎃🎃 he takes one for the team😂😳🏡🐶 he’s been a ghost, skunk, angel, cowboy AND this year he’s going political ..
Brace yourself it’s cute ….
No Matter your party affiliation you should consider Rupert’s bid for President. He most certainly would bring more style, is more sincere, and adds class to the position.
On the Lake
Comes in Various Packages
Luna’s costume is a laugh. She is dressed as a Gray Ghost Weimar. How cute is that?
Sometimes it is more a BooHoo
Not every cutie loves the idea of wearing a costume. This girl wasn’t thrilled but just say it–Oh my Gosh! We are so glad her Mama insisted she sport this costume.
Hope your Halloween is fun!
~ Swimming the MacKenzie River
With the novelty of sprinklers wearing off, Porsche decided to take on
the MacKenzie River. It took 3 or 4 lessons before she would swim
across. The river is low, so for 40 feet of width only about 10 feet
required swimming, and I could walk all the way across to an island.
Please note life jacket found at St. Vincent de Paul for $2.00 is a
great teaching aid and confidence builder for swimming. Of course,
everyone should wear one on the river. When I slipped and fell into the
water, I was glad to have my life jacket, and Porsche immediately came
to my rescue. She steadies me when I go up and down the river bank. I
think she is figuring out her role in my life.
The New Cooling Pad
Here is Porsche’s new cooling pad. My daughter gave it to
her. Porsche seeks it out when it is hot. For us, 90 degrees is hot,
and it’s been a bit hotter than that.
I hope you enjoy this news of Porsche and her life

Graydon and Eeyore
Not Every Family Is The Same
The makeup of a family is something that is entirely unique. There are many factors involved. Personalities, environment, as well as the structure, contributes–even the home’s atmosphere. For some, the critters they surround themselves with are what makes their life special. Here is one family’s new addition. Please read the entire post before commenting. Thank You! Dan writes-
Talk about temptation! Here is Graydon learning how to treat a new “family” member. He’s doing really well! Our bunny is a gray lop-eared one–we call him “Eeyore”. First, let me say this sitting on the rug together didn’t happen overnight.
We have taken our time introducing Graydon and “Eeyore” to each other. It’s been a slow process as we started with allowing him in the garage with the bunny cage supervised, of course. Then we’ve had the rabbit sitting on our laps with Graydon in the same room, but now participating. Yesterday was the first time we let the rabbit run around the house and Graydon did a great job. He sniffed noses with the rabbit several time over a few hours and would just lie down near it and go to sleep.
When it comes to the Birds
The same can be said of our chickens. We’ve had them with Graydon for over 1.5 years now. Even when they cluck and get agitated he just watches them with slight interest now versus wanting to snap at them as in the beginning. He watches them, for sure, but knows they are part of his “pack” now. Only thing we don’t care for that much is how he likes to “snack” on their droppings.
However, with wildbirds he is all there!
Fire Ember Leave a Mark
Oh. The little groove looking thing on Graydon’s head is from the goof snapping at fire embers and getting one on his head. It just singed the hair a bit and it’ll grow back. No harm done 🙂
Speaking of Bunnies
Spring brings thoughts of new birth and the Easter Bunny. Many of our clients keep bunnies, chickens, and even exotics. We are not aware of any who discard these critters once they are brought into the family. To us, this is unthinkable.
There are countless warnings about giving your child a bunny for Easter. We consider the commitment to the bunny the same as to the Weimaraner. Unless you are in it for the long-haul, then you should stick to the chocolate bunny.
You might remember that Graydon is being field trained. This scenario means he has to learn when to retrieve and when the critter is to be respected as part of the family. Many multi-pet families manage to integrate their critters. There are farm and ranch families as well are city-dwellers who are crazy for their critters. All that aside, this is no small undertaking and it requires absolute follow through and commitment to the end. Yes, a bunny and a Weimaraner can be friends; however, this is not a choice for everyone. You are equally obligated to ensure the bunny’s safety.
Kula & Pilikia
Santa Cruz, CA
Pilikia joined your family as a young girl. Kula was already an integral part of the household as well as the family lifestyle. She has never known being the solo Weimaraner; therefore, it must have seemed very odd to her. She might feel like a fish out of the water. As you understand, these guys are creatures of habit. They like routine and companionship. Thank you for sharing this story with us. It is a very fun post.
Speak For Yourself!
Rebel sports a large set of antlers. Soon after this indignant pose, he got over it. Maybe you have felt the same sometime this holiday. We hope not. Exhaustion is one thing. Bah Humbug! Well, that is quite another thing. One to be avoided in our way of thinking. No Weimaraner wants to be where Christmas is not a thing. In fact, they like to think there will be a bit of Christmas spirit every day of their life.
Sometimes we comply with things we don’t wish to do to make it special for someone else. The Weimaraner does this too! Do you wonder if they have an ulterior motive? Of course, they do! Not only do they love us unconditionally, but they also comply with some pretty absurd requests. How how they delight us. The bring laughter. Joy surrounds us more often than not. Mischief and shenanigans of every sort envelope us from time to time. Some we could not have imagined. Did we ever mention this breed is not for everyone? Truthfully, there is a big of puppy in the adult Weim.
Thank You To Our Weimaraners!
Merry Christmas Too!
Here is one more look at Charlie Mae’s Annual hairdo. Who won’t smile seeing this sweet Christmas Tree Look? Maybe Miss Charlie Mae, who appears to be saying, “Are we done yet?”
