~Living the Life in Weiser, Idaho
Hi ! Hope you and Cliff are well! I want to give you an update on Sophia. 10 months old now (can you believe it?!) and she weighs 75 pounds. Martha (vet) said “Keep doing what you’re doing, she’s healthy and at a perfect weight.” 😁
We love hearing the news that Sophia is doing well–and the Vet endorsement that your diet is perfect for her. Thanks for keeping us apprised. Keep doing what you are doing — it is a journey, and in time we will see what you become.

Thought I’d send you some update photos of Memphis! Can’t thank you enough for this incredible addition to our family!
Thank you, for thinking of us –we cannot be happier that you shared these moments in time, and that you love Memphis.
My neighbors across the street, Cliff and Nancy, were on vacation when you brought Sophia and they got home last Thursday and got to see Sophia on Friday with their “girls.” Annie is 8, a yellow lab, and Sally is 4-ish, a border collie mix that was rescued. Annie and Sally always come running across the street whenever Azura and I are in the front yard, and they did exactly that on Friday. Sophia was overwhelmed, ran under the table, came out to me and then met Annie and Sally one at a time, backed away from Cliff at first, then sniffed his hand and licked his fingers and the games began! In an instant, she was racing around the front yard with Annie and Sally and Azura, actually keeping up with the big girls most of the time. My little girl held her own, for sure! And, best of all, she never went into the street even when Sally would run across the street to her yard and then back to my yard. Later Nancy came over to meet Sophia and Sophia warmed up to Nancy almost as quickly as she did with Cliff, and then she went running back to the girls to join the fun. I’d love to tell you that Sophia stayed in the front yard the next time we were out front and Sally and Annie came over, but she followed Sally across the street, so now we’re going to be slowly going into border training. Oh, and you should know, she figured out how to come in the doggie door in about a week and a half! She hasn’t figured out how to go out, but she’s definitely got the coming in part nailed!
Hope you both are doing well and are enjoying this beautiful weather!
Thank you, Lisa, for sharing this sweet story and the news about Sophia.
Thought you might like a 12week (almost 13) update on our out Henry!
He’s amazing. He loves to play fetch and so good at the return. He is learning and listening so well. Still mastering the potty training, but great as long as we are paying attention! He’s such a funny pup and so smart! He is able to play hide and seek with toys and people. He’s catching on so we’ll to words we use. He is obedient to sit, stay, lay down, come and ‘outside’ (our word for potty!) He has even mastered wiping his feet when he comes back in, on the rug…. For a treat of course! He has grown SO much and going to need a bigger bed soon!
Sorry some of the pics are blurry! He’s not still for long! ~Jill and Clint
Hello There–we are so happy to hear from you. Just look at what is happening, you are doing great things. We cannot be happier to hear the news and to these photos. Thanks ever so much!
Happy New Year! Thought I would give you an update on Dunkin…he turns 2 in January.
He is a great family member…he does not consider himself the family ”pet” ha ha…Smartest family member we have ever had!
He loves water…will launch in after a stick, Frisbee…whatever. Love pheasants, could care less about quail, is totally into ducks. We run into them a lot on our walks but have never hunted them because I would rather go fishing. He loves fishing in the boat.
He is great around other dogs; my son has a 6-month-old female pound puppy…she is feisty, pretty aggressive……and the two of them can play for hours.
He is an excellent retriever…loves to play Frisbee…is really good at catching it out of the air…we do this when I get home from work…whether I want to or not…..
I hope all is well with you. Scott
Thanks for the fabulous update. We are so happy to hear that Dunkin is doing well. Sorry, I could not get the video to turn–I hope it works okay.
Celebrating Four Years
Hard to believe Maggie turned 4 in December! Thought we would send some photos of her so you could see how adorable she is.
We are still amazed by her awesome personality and spunky spirit. She keeps us young–but she has truly been one of the best dogs we have ever had! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Years!

Dear Phil and Gretchen–we appreciate you folks thinking about us. It looks like Maggie is enjoying life and that she helped make Christmas a lot of fun. Yes, we love her photos. We always enjoy hearing about Maggie and seeing her photos–as do others.
Brews and Barks
Yesterday at the base of Silver Mountain Resort here in Kellogg (Idaho) they had a “brews and barks” event. It was a fund raiser for H.E.L.P. which is an organization that helps animals. They had a bunch of microbrew beers too for the adult furparents 🙂 it was amazing.
Chester got to go. Pokey had to stay home, she gets much too nervous to have been around that many people and pets. We missed her, but I know she was happier and safer at home!
New Friends for Winchester
Winchester made so many friends! A little Boston Terrier, a Boxer. Attention from SO many people who wanted to know what breed he was. (Aren’t Weimaraners really light and grey usually) so I explained all about blues. How he’s still AKC registered even though they don’t recognize his colors. And how blues are looked down on and thought to have more health problems and not that great of temperaments. Which Chester surely showed them is not true!
Winchester Impressed Everyone He Met
They told me he is the most beautiful weim they’ve ever seen. I was thinking “if only you could see my two lookers together!” I also wrote down your guys’ website on napkins more than I can count. Will probably be bringing business cards to doggy events from now on! 🙂
I signed my little boy up for “best tail wag contest” and out of about 15 dogs Chester was the only one who had a nub tail! Numerous people said to me “he doesnt have a tail!” People hating on his little nubbin! He ended up placing third! YAYYY Chester! He got a bag of treats, a toy, and a medal! I took pictures of him, he was so proud!!
Things are great here in Kellogg.
Breeder’s Note: The American Standard for the traditional adult Weimaraner calls for about a six inch tail. Winchester has a nice tail. In Europe, the Weimaraner has undocked tails across the board. Around the world, the breed standard for the longhair is the undocked tail.
