~ Update from California
Just kept thinking I needed to let you know how Ace was doing. Hopefully you were thinking no news is good news in his case! By the picture, you can see he is indeed alive and well. He still is getting both the Probiotic you recommended and the Nuvet supplements.
He is growing and putting on a little weight thank goodness! He is currently at about 44 pounds. Still is a little prone to the looser stool towards the end of the day but I think we ALL can live with that. His adult teeth are growing in and we will be checking in with the vet in another month or so to schedule his neutering. All in all a great dog. Not too hyper. Not a barker and has only destroyed a minimal amount of things. Lol! Actually I can’t really think of anything that he actually destroyed. Maybe “diminished” a few things is more accurate.Thank goodness that he is crate trained 😊Hope all is well with you and Cliff.
Your Friends,Dee and Ace🐾
He looks to be healthy and happy. Thank you, for remembering us–it is good to hear about little ‘Ace’.
~My Blue Longhair Girl
Today (5/15/2019) Revelry Blue (Stackhouse x Zula Blue) turns 1! What a journey the last 10 months have been. Revelry is smart, cheeky, and full of spunk. She comes to work with me almost every day and has been a fantastic demo dog, always eager to help all the young puppies in class learn how to be the best they can be. She is a real dog’s dog, especially fond of the little ones (probably because she’s been raised with 2 little older Dachshund sisters). She is by far the calmest Weimaraner I’ve ever known and apart from a hole-digging phase, amazingly hasn’t been destructive at all.
There have been downs with all the ups as well. Revelry, while calm, has also been dealing with anxiety, spooking a lot at strange or new things. Small children have been our biggest foe. They are tiny and move weirdly, and Revelry finds them to be most alarming. That said, we have come a very long way already and are continually working hard to desensitize her to all potential scary things, large, small, and loud!
Revelry is set to take her Canine Good Citizen test next month and I am 100% certain she is going to pass! She has been such an easy dog to train and I can tell that she truly enjoys learning. People are constantly commenting on both her incredible beauty and wonderful manners. This girl occasionally tests me, but she also makes me so proud every single day. I love her to the moon.
Thank you for all that you do, but mostly for allowing me to be this sweet girl’s mom.
All our best,
Emily and Revelry
Dear Emily–thank you for taking the time to write to us about your first year with Revelry. She has every advantage with you being a dog trainer–I am sure you have everything managed.
What Could Be Better?
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.
~The Little Blue Guy
We just got the results back from the 16 week Titer test. Stone tested positive for both antibodies, which is great! However, the vet technician warned me that Stone could still be at risk and that they suggest the 16 week vaccination. I am holding strong.
Stone is very much at home here, loves his big brother, Blue, tolerates his crate, devours his food and then heads for Blue’s bowl (and shock of shock, Blue lets him eat from his bowl!), and continues to be the world’s best snuggler. Everyone stops me on our daily walks to coo over how sweet he is. Stone is really smart too – and we start Obedience Classes in May.
But who leaves out dog treats when a Weim is waiting for the vet???
Thank you for our little angel. We love him so.
As I always say–thank you, Victoria, for the update on Stone. You have been so excellent as sending things that I can share on the Blog. It means a lot to us.
We love to hear that Stone has settled into his routine and that he is doing well in every way. These photos are precious. I know everyone is going to appreciate seeing them.
~Our Gorgeous Blue Boy
I know I expressed concern over Ace’s size – and sometimes loose stools, I think I have been stressing way too much about his growth and the late afternoon loose stools.
He (Ace) by all appearances is healthy, and now that I realize he is probably going to be somewhat undersized (which I don’t care) I am able to breathe a sign of relief. He is perfect in every other way. I can’t thank you enough for your support. You and Cliff do an amazing job! ~Dee
We understand that he is your baby and you could be overly concerned about every detail. He looks to be thriving to us–about what we would expect. We didn’t realize he would be smaller–even though that particular lineage does produce small-sized Weims. No one can guess size when the DNA pool draws from a larger grouping of various sized Weimaraners. The pup can take its cue from any number of ancestors–ultimately, health is the essential factor. Thanks for updating us!
~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.
~The Much Loved Duke
Friday, April 5th –It is with a heavy broken heart I wanted to let you know we lost Duke (Dusty x Gracie) last night. I knew this day would come but are we ever ready to lose part of our heart and soul?? Foster came home from school to bloody urine and diarrhea. Duke has turned 13 January 2nd and I couldn’t see him suffer. I had a vet come to the house so he could die peacefully on his couch.
It has been a rough couple of days. The news of Duke’s passing came less than twenty-four hours before Dusty’s departure. We appreciate how much he was loved. Thank you, for the beautiful life your family gave him.
We are saddened to report that our beloved Dusty has departed his earthy domain, and joined the great group of Weimaraners awaiting his arrival at Heaven’s Door. We really cannot say more, but please remember him as captured in the lovely photo.
~Finn’s Adjusting Quickly
All is going well. As you can see, he loves the retrieve. He also loves harassing Gunner but Gunner is letting him get closer.
Oh and we have a winner here–he is great in the crate. Sleeps thru the night….which is about 6 hrs. Gets up with me and goes back in crate for a little while gunner and I run and family is still asleep.
We are happy to learn how Finn is coming along with getting Gunner’s approval. (Haha) it is fabulous to hear how he has adjusted to the morning routine. Not so long ago he was with us–
~ Our Sweet Boris
Our sweet Boris is scratching and itching. We think he has fleas. Is there a flea product you recommend? I use revolution for my cat and used it on my last dog Moon. But after reading Cliffs pamphlet. And learning how sensitive these dogs are. We are concerned. Today Claude plans on giving him a bath we don’t want anything toxic for our pets. We do believe in natural remedies. And want Boris to have the best care we can give him. Right now Claude and Boris are outside playing in the rain. He is such a joy.
We tried to get you the photo you wanted– it’s a bad pic but it’s the best I could do right now. He’s a wiggle worm. Already working us over. He rings the potty bell. A couple pee pee accidents, but it was our fault for not acting quickly . Now he rings the bell because he wants to go outside and chew on pine cones and tree bark. He’s such a rascal! Feeling comfortable at home . Don’t have a minute to spare. He’s barking at me now . So gotta go! I’ll send a better pic when my daughter is here to help us out.
We understand that getting a quality photo of a young Weimaraner can be a challenge. Thank you, for your effort. I am sure everyone loves seeing Boris with you.
It sounds like you are doing well–we trust you got the information we Emailed you. Please let us know how it works. For those who wonder–this pup was older when they got him. We had and have a few available pups that are older than the traditional eight-weeks. To find out more, Email us.
