Imagine if the cover was off
Well, it looks like the perfect perch, too!

Ace busy pruning my wisteria this morning 😬
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❣️

~ 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.

The boys are doing great! Hope you are too…
Here are a couple stoic Christmas poses, they love the photo attention and will sit until you get it… Ha Ha.
They have become best buds, well at least Coop thinks so…
I’d say this is another successful placement by the two of you, we couldn’t have asked for more.. ~ Cal
Thanks once again, Cal, for another great update. Sorry–it took a while to get posted. I am sure everyone is loving the photos especially the Christmas light thing.
More than a bath
Thank you, for always thinking of us Cal. We appreciate the extra effort you put into these updates. We are tickled pink your two boys are well-adjusted, happy, and thriving.
Ducky came into my life on his 8 week birthday. My first Weimaraner, Ted, was a silver grey so I decided to go with a blue this time around. People often ask me how I came up with the name Ducky. I have a litany of answers: he was born in Oregon, he was #7 of 9 in his litter – so a lucky duck, he waddled a bit like a duck as a puppy, I’m Mindy Brown and there’s a famous fashion designer in NYC named Duckie Brown – but most important, I just liked the name, I found it unique and it fit him to a tee! He has nicknames like Duskster, Duck Duck, Ducky Brown, The Baby, King of the Hill, my Angel, etc. but mostly he’s just plain ole Ducky. He’s also my Hunter. That hunting lineage is definitely at the forefront of his personality. He’s always looking for something to hunt down – whether it be a fly in my kitchen or a squirrel running across my back wall. He also thinks he’s a cat as he can leap and scale a 10’ wall. He’s not so ball crazy as my last Weim, but he definitely likes to play – only problem is – he destroys all of his toys. He’s definitely an elite athlete. He loves to go to the park and play frisbee – loves to run on the beach and loves to go for rides in the car. He likes to bask in the sun and lounge after his off leash hikes in an unincorporated area of Palos Verdes. He loves to play with other dogs and is as fast as lightning – always the leader of the pack. He prefers to have a part of his body touching me and usually has a shoe, slipper or piece of my clothing tucked under his snout. He likes to sit wherever I am and often times stretches a body part on me. He’s also very loquacious – as he’s always talking to me – especially when I’m cooking in the kitchen or working on the computer. But above everything – he loves loves loves to eat! This dog has one mighty appetite and loves his fruits and vegetables.I honestly didn’t think I could ever find an equal replacement to Ted, but after 3 years and several trips to Sun Valley – I put all my faith in Shela and Cliff – and my prayers were answered. I had only two requirements: a large blue male – and sure enough, I got that and much more. Above and beyond all of his other great traits, he’s the SWEETEST and SMARTEST dog and an amazing companion!

She slobbered all over the ballot envelope but everyone was so impressed she carried them in. I can’t thank you enough. She is so smart and a great companion. Whether it’s lounging on the couch and cuddling hard or bringing in the newspaper. Life would be so dull without her. I’m hooked!On another note, I adore all of your blogs and love the weekend updates on you & Cliff. The last pic you posted of him holding the 3 pups is so good. What a great pic. I very much enjoyed Loki’s post today. Ski patrol. So awesome! No surprise though. These Weims are so smart and want to learn. Amazing Shela. Thanks for all you do.Chrissy

We are doing well. She has quite the temper and will let you know if she doesn’t like something. We are working at getting past the sharp puppy teeth thing. She is going to be a Sharp Hunter.
All Tuckered Out
We are happy to hear that you are doing well with Style. We look forward to hearing about her future training and exploits. Thanks for thinking of us.
“says Oh Yeah!”
Here is Kula doing what he loves, swimming after sticks in the river, even when the water gets cold, he is keen for a swim! He is super good at navigating the currents and rapids and knows the commands right or left when he loses track of a stick and I can direct him from the shore!

Hi it’s Tina. I just wanted to share a few photos of Enzo with you. I don’t have a Facebook account as I am not really a social media person.
Enzo is such a great puppy and we love him so much. He is fitting into our family perfectly. I look forward to each new adventure.
Enzo at 11 weeks old has been such a joy added to our life. As he is adorable, he is still very much a puppy chewing on everything and keeping us on watch all the time. Even so we love him as addition to our family.
We are so happy, so thanks again.
We are so delighted to hear that Enzo is doing excellent. He sounds like the typical Weimaraner puppy. They love using their mouths, and when it is not the mouth, then it is their feet. Both empower the Weimaraner pup–and are challenging to get in compliance. (Haha) Cliff and I are both so happy to get the news from you. Thanks ever so much for the update. It means the world to us.
