Oscar

~ Still doing well in Calgary

It’s been a while but i thought I would send along a picture of Oscar.  He is 8 now and still thinks he is a puppy but sure loves his cuddles with mom and dad.  

Other than a few lumps of fat he has been healthy as an ox and an absolute joy.  I hope you and your family are keeping well and staying safe during these times.

Everyone realizes that we don’t know how many days we get with our beloved fur-family members. Each moment is precious. We are so happy to learn that Oscar is still puppy-like and cuddling with his favorite humans. Thanks for the update.

Dyson

~Paws Onboard

Here’s a short update on Dyson for your blog. I could write about him every week!!  

Dyson (Boone x Flo) is 6 months now and 55lbs.  I remember in the 6 week behavior assessment you commented on how he uses his paws. Well!  I think he might be a southpaw but is close to being ambidextrous as I’ve never had a dog use his paws so much for everything.

Both ears are rarely fully down which I think makes him even cuter than possible. He is so friendly and smothers kisses on everyone he meets. Last night at the pet store a toddler saw him and opened her arms wide to him and he was so gentle with her and his kisses. Made my heart melt as he hasn’t been around too many children.  Not very many blues in Canada so he is jaw dropping to everyone.  He gets smarter, more challenging and more magnificent each day!
Would love to see pics of other Flo and Boone pups from March!

Ps. Here’s a great new Kong toy I found which is great for stuffing small kibble, treats and peanut butter into the holes, on both sides.

We appreciate your cute and newsy update, Mardo. Possibly someone else will read this that has a littermate and send us another update. That would be excellent.

We are glad to hear you are doing well together–thanks again.

Dyson

~Loves People

Dyson is well and growing fast. He goes to puppy class and is a superstar. He also goes to puppy socialization play dates weekly. He’s a little shy to get started but once he observes for awhile he’s happy. If he gets overwhelmed he finds someone’s legs to stand in between. He loves people!  One of the supervisors said he is a polite puppy which made me proud.

At home he’s in love with playing with Leo and Leo has accepted him fully.  Dyson is very interested in people first dogs second. And he likes to sit watch and observe new situations. Oh he’s going to be such a smart dog!!

We appreciate the update (including the photos)–and especially insight into living with this lovely boy. Thanks for remembering us–it means a lot.

Ace

~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!

Oscar on Vacation

We had Oscar in Squamish and Whistler on a vacation last week.  He had a great time and we took some cool videos and pictures.

Breeder’s Comment: Last week, we talked about the Weimaraner that has to stay home, or possibly stay with someone while you are gone. However, it is much more common for the Weimaraner to join their family on vacation. It still requires having a well-trained, well-adjusted, and social Weimaraner. The more adaptable the Weimaraner the better things will go! 

Pet Friendly Hotels

Jeff also wanted to point out  that there are many accommodations that are pet friendly.  I will forward you a picture of Liana and Oscar in the Fairmont Vancouver (very fancy hotel)  It was a little challenge finding green space for him to do his thing but well worth it. Here they are………Plus a couple other vacation photos.IMG_4008 IMG_4013 Liana and Oscar in the Fairmont Vancouver
