~We love our Eazy
I’m sorry it has taken us so long but I wanted to send you an update. Eazy is fitting in sooo well here. Our boxer, Opie, has adopted him and has been teaching him the ropes. He loves his new humans and vice versa, as well.
We are still working on potty training so that is a struggle. He has already learned to sit and has lost 3 or 4 teeth!
We took him for his first neighborhood walk today and he was so excited! He loved smelling and experiencing new things!
I have attached some pictures for you, too.
I did have one concern you might want to be aware of. It looks like his front ankles are turned in and paws are turned out. He is still growing and may grow out of it but, being a breeder, I thought I would let you know. You can see it in one of the pictures attached. Take a look and let me know what you think. This is our first Weimaraner so it may be normal.
I feel really bad for not sending any updates sooner so please be assured he is loving his new home and we love him so much it hurts 😍 haha!
Andrew, we are so happy to hear from you. Of course, we can never say enough how much we appreciate our Weimaraner folks. This is your first, as you say. It is a bit different.
The joints–we don’t believe it is anything to be concerned about. The lineages here have produced quality pups–Deja’s lineage is one we have had for several generations–almost twenty years. We do want to mention that a person needs to be very careful with vaccine–the reason we talk about our protocol is it is in the best interest of the Weimaraner. To venture outside that protocol could trigger a reaction which may result in inflammation of the joints. Sometimes the vaccine reactions can be life-threatening. It is why we make a big deal out of following our protocol. (Haha) No one wants to risk something happening that would compromise the well-being of their beloved fur-family member.
Housebreaking–most folks have very few problems. On occasion, the Weimaraner can get a different idea. (OMG) The trick to raising the Weimaraner is to get them to do what you want–and to think it is their idea. They are very concrete-thinking. A lot of folks think the occasional accident is okay–and it is, but with this breed if they get the idea they prefer an indoor spot to somewhere outside you have an ongoing issue. I am positive you will get this handled, but I wanted to mention it here. Any unwanted behavior is best avoided–this concrete-thinking thing often works in your favor when the behavior is one you want to encourage.
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.
~Or, Where’s our Lu?
So – Lu doesn’t sleep on the bed with us at night but has her own crate and bed.
But during the day for naps, I bought a heavy muslin-weight couch cover that I put over the bed, and she has her own blanket. At 8 years old, she does like her creature-comforts (in fact in very cold weather she loves to nap on top of the heat vent!). Spoiled? Of course.
This morning is freezing fog in Central Oregon, and after her morning outing and breakfast, guess where she heads!
I’m titling this one: “There’s a Weim in there somewhere”!
Hope you and Cliff have a great 2019 – and thanks for all the wonderful posts.

It is so good that you keep us apprised an Lu and her antics. This is a good one–where all of us might like to be on such a morning as you describe. (Haha)

~ At Home
Peach and Kimber are finally best buds! We can’t keep them away from each other. They love to play and rough house all day long! Kimber LOVES being outdoors! She also loves to snuggle.
Thank you both again! Kimber is already part of our family and we are so happy with her.
We love you choice of Names–Kimber. (Haha) Isn’t it fabulous that Peach and Kimber are playing together already? We love hearing that we didn’t disappoint. Thanks for updating us.
~She is adjusting well
Here is a story I thought you would appreciate. Saturday me and My girlfriend Samantha took our puppy to Lowe’s to get some supplies and ran into a gentleman (the name I forgot) who have a beautiful almost 2-year-old blue male Weimaraner named Kota (Dakota) I’m assuming?
He explained he got his dog from you as well and that he got one of the blue males from the same litter as our little girl! Small world! Meanwhile, Athena is having a lot of good experiences beyond the crate training I mentioned last time we spoke.
Also, this link (click here) might be of interest as I am sure she was the main reason we made the news! 2 segments at that!
Hey Nick–we appreciate the cute photos. We are glad that you were able to connect again with Koda’s & Mylo’s family–I am sure you have a playdate in the works. Maybe you didn’t realize it, but yesterday’s blog featured the two Blue boys belonging to the gentleman you met at Lowes.
We hope you will stay in touch–and that your training continues to unfold in an excellent manner. Thanks ever so much for this lovely update.
This was our second Christmas with our Dash. As you can see, he’s grown up quite a bit from last year at this time. He continues to be a happy, healthy and handsome boy. He just has the best disposition and we love him so. We just wanted to let you know that we are so grateful that we got him from you. All the best to our OwyheeStar family. Audrey & Dave
Thank you for sharing this lovely photo of Dash. We are thrilled that he more than met your expectations.
Winchester’s first Christmas.
Chester has been such a good sport during this holiday season. He seemed a bit confused about the tree in the house at first he gave me that “I’m not allowed to bring my stick in the house but you get to bring in the whole tree?” Lol. But he has been a very good boy for the most part. He even posed in front of the tree with his Christmas sweater and hat! He will be so excited to get his presents on Christmas day! I can’t wait for his first Christmas.
How you delight in everything Chester makes our heart happy. We are glad for your beautiful friendship. You make it all magical–thank you. Merry Christmas –enjoy every moment. We know you will.
~With Chester in Oregon
Chester has been helping Mama wrap presents and when I say help, but I mean stealing all the presents and trying to run away with them. Luckily I have caught him before the presents are ruined. I think Chester is worried he is on the naughty list because he has decided to bark at my Santa on the mantel then proceed to run away. He brings me so much joy and laughter. Brandon and I both love him so much! Happy holidays!
We are ever so thankful to you folks–and happy for Chester.
Santa–well maybe we can consider that a fat guy dressed in red who suddenly appears to stare at Chester, is a bit disconcerting. Where did he come from? He wasn’t there before. And he just stares at me with those twinkly eyes, Mom. What’s up with that?
What Does It Look Like?
It doesn’t require an explanation if you know what we are talking about–such a loyal friend is not one you come by every day. Maybe you are blessed indeed. We sincerely hope it is true.
It’s Been Almost Six Years
Just wanted to say Thank you. We got Doc Holiday from you almost 6years ago. He is the smartest sweetest dog. He has brought joy to our lives. Thanks again. Also, love reading your daily posts.
What Else Can I Say?
He is very routine oriented. If my alarm goes off and I do not get up he will tap me with his paw to wake me back up. He is more than happy to sleep in on the weekend, but if the alarm goes off. It is time for his breakfast! He also will wake you up to cover him up at night. He loves his blanket.
Merry Christmas a little early.
~ Dara and Doc Holiday
We are ever so thankful that you took time to update us on your wonderful family member–Doc Holiday. What fabulously clever name, too!
