~A Beautiful Blue Girl
I don’t think these photos require an explanation. That is a perfect scenario for a Sunday when I am behind the curve. (Haha)
Just an update on our girl! She’s growing like a weed and learning new commands every week. We decided to bell train her for potty time and shes mastered that pretty quick! Currently working on “leave it” and “stay.” She’s making lots of people friends and her and her older brother (6yr Yorkie) play a rowdy game of Tug of War almost daily. If she’s not playing you can usually find her lounging on the couch or sleeping on someone’s chest.
Happy updates, Angel and Jake
Dear Angel and Jake–we love hearing how Pepper is adjusting. Also, it is fabulous that she is making a lot of friends, Thank you –for remembering us.
~ We Celebrate 5 Years in December
Just wanted to send the yearly photos of our Maggie who turned 5 12/19. Still bringing us lots of happiness and joy! Our boys love to get her all riled up when they hide her ball. Too bad their hiding skills are no match for her nose!
We have also started to teach her how to find sheds. She is so smart! Anytime you say “let’s go” or “bird” or “duck” her ears perk right up. She still loves to cuddle with the cat. Phil and I can barely get our running shoes tied and she already is standing at the front door! The neighbors think it is pretty cool that we have her hold her own leash on our walks……Can’t imagine our lives without her.
One more thing….we take her collar off at night and in the morning we tell her to “go get her clothes” and she brings us her collar….She’s so much fun!
Hope all is well with you!Phil and Gretchen
Thank you, for another update on Maggie and her life with you. She looks so happy–glad you love her so much.
You might remember seeing Bella Rae and Grace on a recent Blog. This update is a bit late. We had several updates come all at once. Please do continue to send the updates. We will soon be out of them –haha.
Just a little update on Bella Rae. After a week home, she has really settled in. Our flight went great, she slept on my lap most of the way. I started with the carrier on my lap and my hand inside the bag and she sort of worked her way out and onto my lap where she slept happily the rest of the way. Since she’s been home she has slept through the night very well in her crate, we’ll go out to potty for the last time around 10 or 11 and then she sleeps until 4:30/5ish.
She isn’t too fond of being in the crate during the day unless someone is sitting by her but we are working on that. Bella is quite the cuddle bug when she’s not playing she loves to run and jump into your lap and snuggle there, she also loves cuddling in bed (of course) before she goes into the crate at night.
Her and Bacchus have become great friends. They play quite a bit (always supervised since he doesn’t really know how big he is) and when she cries in the crate he’ll go into the room and check on her, which usually quiets her right down. Bella is definitely an alpha, she climbs all over Bacchus and puts him in his place whenever she can. She’s also very brave and loves exploring outside. Taun is taking a bit longer to warm up to her but we’re making progress…
Here are a few pictures of her from the week. She is a great addition to the family, thank you both for all you do!
All our best,
Grace, Laura, and Jon
We were walking Mesquite Monday morning, she was in some tall grass when she let out a war whoop. I thought she had stepped on something sharp, when got over to her she had a big gash in her tummy just ahead of the right rear leg.
We took her to the vet and it took 15 stitches to close her back up.
Someone had broken off an old steel fence post about 8 inches above the ground.
She is on pain meds and antibiotics.
We were darn lucky, because it didn’t bleed much, and we were a mile from the house. I have keeping her in the house.
I sure hope she comes out okay?
Here is our Mesquite protecting her injury. She hates that tee shirt.
We are sad to her that Mesquite has a serious accident. At the same, we are relieved that it was not life-threatening. Thank you, for being quick to get her the care she needed. We will all say a prayer for her speedy and complete recovery.
~No Cats Allowed
Ellie loves to rest on the couch by the fire with her blanket covering her. Unfortunately, so do the cats. The black cat likes to “knead dough” on the blanket, especially if Ellie is under it. This really annoys Ellie. In this picture, Ellie is pretending the cats aren’t there.
All the Best, Bob
Thank you, Bob, for sharing Ellie’s dilemma. I am sure she is not the first to cope with unwanted attention in this manner. You’d think though, that she would relish the idea of the kitty-kneading away. What a silly girl she is–and those cats make sure they are never too far away. (Haha)
While my mom stepped away for a moment, I thought I would send you a quick update. She planted a bunch of carrots this year and guess who got to be the taste tester. All is well here in Georgia. By the way, I overheard my dad mention I need a sibling. I may have to print our your latest “new arrival pics” and put them all around the house. ssssssssssshhhh don’t tell them I know how to type and use the printer. Was sending these in a hurry so they aren’t all rotated.
Jacie, it is so exciting to hear from you. It has been a long time. Carrots–yum. They are good for you. Did you know pumpkin and sweet potatoes are also good–no sugar and spices. (Haha)
Ah, a sibling. Wow! That would get exciting. We send you a hug sweet girl. Oh, and Jacie– I think our program straightened your photos for you.
~1st trip to Brookings OR.
Lots of smelling going on. Both she and Jack had a ball. Bella even did a great imitation of the Flying Nun! Showing my age with that old show! Hope you and Cliff are doing well! Zula Blue x Stackhouse the magnificent!
Sometimes I think these Weims have all the fun. Who wouldn’t like a trip to Brookings? Thanks for thinking of us.
Bella and Levi
~ Our Life Experience
Bella here to report that Levi thinks he can just take my spot on the sofa. He ought to know by now who is running things–if he leaves food I finish it and sometimes I get it anyhow. (oops) Mom says we are nuts–I say things ought to be run the way I think the world turns.
Speaking of Food
I really find that Mom’s goodies are fair game–yum. She laughs and captures photos of my antics. Here you see me, Bella, and I am stalking Mama and her Banana Chips.
Okay, do I get a little excited when it comes to going someplace. Mom says though she cannot understand spending good money for those baby gates (LOL) She just uses cardboard. Then she is able to escape out the back door without being knocked over. (oops, again).
It is fun to hear about your life and how things work. Without a doubt, you are a true Weimlover. Thanks ever so much for the share.
