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.
