Baby ‘T’

~Made it Safely to California

(Saturday October 26, 2019) What a day…and we’re not done yet!  Baby “T” (name still under discussion) was great meeting friends and relatives today in Roseville and he was perfect on the drive home.  This was taken after a wave of relatives had left just before we left Roseville.

He comes with the ability to run after small children (very happily). I’ve had a half dozen alerts that the power would go out at 4 p.m. It’s now 5:30 and the car is unpacked and I still have power but wanted to get this to you today as we could be without power until Wednesday.  Not a big deal really…glad its a weekend. 


Love to you both, Barb

It always makes us happy to know a puppy has made it safely and is making an excellent adjustment. All the socialization and work should set you up for success, but it is an ongoing process. Thanks for the news. We sincerely hope you are safe. Let us know how things go.

Birthdays Happen

~Like this One for Ducky

Dear Ducky–it is hard to believe it has been five years since you left OwyheeStar to live in sunny California. The last update was about a year ago–click here if you want to read it.

There were a lot of other OwyheeStar Weimaraner birthdays on Facebook. I would try to list a few here, but I will let their humans do that if they wish. Otherwise, I would for sure, miss a few. Happy birthday–Ducky!

Remy Blue

~ part two

Trips to the “holistic” vet have been fine. No issues with the titer testing, in fact, our vet was quite pleased with your protocol. Remy Blue did fine. Next big milestone is spaying sometime this summer.

Remy Blue took to initially swimming in our pool. She is much more adept at the water than Riley, our last Weim.

Car rides are fun, but Remy Blue becomes sad when my daughter, Evi exits the car for her activity. The tears of a Weim are so heartfelt. She also likes drinking my coffee; she seems to want me to stop at Starbucks for another.

Beach walks are fun for Remy Blue. She seeks out other dogs and wants to run and catch the water. I thinks she likes being a California Weim.

It is so great to see Remy Blue in her element and to hear how well she is doing at the Vet Visits, traveling, and enjoying the beach. Yes–she is a California girl.

Remy Blue

~ Part One

Breeder Comment

We begin with a little preface–so that we can better set the backdrop. Remy Blue is the lovely pup (or the only pup I could also say, born to Deja Vu 04/10/2018). To say she was tiny would be an understatement, but she had another feature which set her apart–a cowlick that ran down the front of her face. Anyhow, we are so delighted to have photos and information on this lovely pup to share with you.

Sahyo Reports

I faithfully read your daily OWNews and am delighted to read all about the many puppies and Weims from your “pack”. I’ll attempt to briefly bring you up to date on “The Wonderful World of Remy Blue”.

Remy Blue is a sweet, loving, and clever puppy. Her cowlick running down her snout is adorable. She immediately eased into our lives and placed her paw right onto our hearts. Her air travel to Carlsbad, CA (as my carryon) was uneventful and she slept through it until the descent. 

Crate training was fine including the initial few minutes of whiny protest, but soon was happily using it as her “home base”. One of her favorite places to rest is a foot pouf. Somehow Remy Blue was able to climb up and find a comfortable spot. Her puppy blue eyes are striking in this photo.

Additional Comment

Sahyo–you so kindly provided us with tidbits of information (and photos) that take her through the first year. We will post this in a few segments over the next ten days. We appreciate you flying into Boise and carrying her home to California, too. We are excited to share more information soon.

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!

We Are Busy

Ace busy pruning my wisteria this morning 😬

Vaccine

The vet has agreed to administer the vaccines according to the Weimaraner protocol. He was prescribed an antibiotic for his eyes. We are hoping that his umbilical hernia will close by itself. I think it already looks smaller. His weight was 15 and 1/2 lbs. It seemed to me that he weighed a little more when we got him but he is eating, sleeping, playing and getting longer legs!! He is a beauty❣️

Diarrhea, Etc.

~ Not what I thought (whew)!

I just wanted to let you know that all is going very well despite a young puppy’s voracious appetite and sharp teeth!!I believe we are off to a solid start. We have completed the AKC registration and the registration for the microchip. We have adjusted the feedings to 1 cup 3x a day. Unfortunately Ace thinks he needs more. Lot’s more!!You know what happens to a dog when you cross that line. Yep! Diarrhea!! We tried listening to him and that’s what we got 🙃

Just set your mind at rest, I turned in a stool sample on Saturday and it was negative 😊

He is sitting and knows his name. Mostly responds to “Ace come” when called. A terrific pottier outside 👍🏻We are monitoring the umbilical hernia but are not concerned. His eye infections are cleared up but he has to finish 3 more days of the antibiotic.I hope all the rest of his litter mates are doing well❣️🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾

Thanks for the detailed updates –we are thrilled to hear that Ace is doing well. Yes, the last minute little hernia appears to be nothing of significance. I am glad you are not worried. Over the years, we have learned that doing as little as possible with these seems to be the best choice–only fix a larger one that is more risky.

We are glad you had the stool sample checked. With young pups it is always wise to check to be sure nothing more is going on–but you have this covered. It appears other folks are doing well–at least that is what we have heard.

Hermosa Beach Welcomes Ducky

Ducky claims his courtyard territory…IMG_0263

The weather has finally started to warm up a bit (67′ today with a high of 72 tomorrow and 74 on Tuesday) and he REALLY seems to be enjoying the sunshine.  He certainly has all the strong traits of a classic Weimie!  I feel so fortunate to have both a front (grass), back and courtyard (both with hardscape and surrounding landscape)  – in addition to the man cave which was converted from the garage.  It really gives him a sense of multiple options and places to play and roam.  He’s growing like a weed – has a V large personality and appears to be quite smart too. I’ll forward on some new pics soon.

I'm HomeWe arrived home safely late Tuesday evening. Ducky is doing great!  I noticed today how much he appears to have grown in just 2.5 days.  He’s definitely acclimated to the house:  loves both the front and backyard!  Very well potty trained and wild for his toys.  Naps for about 30 minutes and then revs his engine up for another 30.

Breeder’s Note: Mindy brought Ducky home on the airplane (as her carry on). It was certainly a better plan than a drive this time of the year, and in general it is best to avoid the exposure to Parvo (which most assuredly affects pet areas, parks, and high-traffic areas). There is a lot that can happen during the flight, and layover time. It can set the stage in a very pleasant manner.
