“There’s a Weim in there somewhere”!

~Or, Where’s our Lu?

At Night

So – Lu doesn’t sleep on the bed with us at night but has her own crate and bed.

Daytime Naps


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)

Athena

~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.

Waiting For Christmas

~With Chester

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.

First Christmas

    ~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!

Yuppers I am having my first Christmas

Breeder Comment

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?

Love

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.

Doc Holiday

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.

We are ever so thankful that you took time to update us on your wonderful family member–Doc Holiday. What fabulously clever name, too! 

Macy

First Hunt

     ~Birds are Great

First time out hunting with Macy today she did great. She was a little slow at the start but picked it up and had a great day. Very proud Poppa. Thank you so much.

Around Home

Yes, Indeed, I still have to share her with my son. They are still the best of friends–which is a good thing. She is very well behaved outside can’t say the same for the inside. She loves the food that she thinks we leave for her on the counter.

Breeder Comment

We are happy to hear that Macy is in the field successfully. We love to get hunt testimonials. Bernie is an excellent hunter. Boone comes from solid working hunt lines–but he has not had as many opportunities to hunt as Bernie. The offspring have proven to be excellent hunting companions. Thanks for remembering us, Don.

We also appreciate your loyalty. It has been a long time as well as a long distance relationship. Of course, the fact that you had to fly to the West Coast and somehow this all converged was outstanding.

Roxy and Sage

  ~and their Non-Weim fur brother-Cooper

20180828_191544

We got my flowerbed and the entire front and other side of the house weed blocked and river rocked.  The only thing that grows well in the dry heat here seems to be petunias.

20181028_103005Roxy likes to stand on top of the septic cover where it is a bit warm during these cold days while she smells the air.  A lady whose dog died gave us her round Costco dog bed.  Sage is even venturing out of her crate to lay on it.  One day she and Roxy left a bit of room and Copper joined them.  Roxy and Copper play and play, loudly at times, and wear each other out.  Copper still tries to jump up on me.  He thinks I am his play buddy.  Not the brightest bulb.  He will be 2 in March.  Roxy still is cheeky as ever.  She will ring the potty bells then run into her crate when you open the door.  Sage has proven herself to be the biggest bone hog.  Roxy’s favorite hobby is to lay in the sunshine near the sliding door and watch for critters.  I had to move my parsley plant which I brought in for the winter because she was munching on it.

One more thing.  It was so funny.  The other day, Sage sat with a bone on the dog bed.  Then she barked at Copper every time he looked at her as if to warn him not to even try to take her bone.  She is so funny at times.  She has her bossy moments too!

Breeder Comment

We are glad to know that Sage and Roxy are still doing pretty well for you. I do always worry about River Rock. Recently I got a message about a young Weimaraner who ate several rocks. (OMG) We have known of several persons who had an issue with their Weims ingesting rocks which can lead to a life-threatening intestinal blockage.  I am sure Roxy and Sage will not start eating the rocks, but it is always a concern. Your flower bed looks lovely.

The Time Change

It’s Exhausting

     ~ Don’t You Agree

Berkley here, “I can’t keep my eyes open, can you?”

The time change is tough on human and the Weimar. There have been a lot of cute posts about us Weims not cooperating with the change in schedule, but seriously, what do you expect? We manage a lot of details within the household. Being on time is essential–when it comes to eating, going certain places, the arrival of the humans, and never more than at our bedtime. So, what’s up with this time thing?

Thanks to Berkley and her family. They always send us great videos and photos. We truly appreciate them. There were other family photos, but this one–don’t you agree? She lives the life that means she is a part of the family–whatever they are doing you see Berkley is involved. We love that!

     ~ We voted!

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!
IMG_3741
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.

Can we agree that Chrissy voted with Moxie? (Haha) I thought that up all by myself. (Get it?!?)
It has been quite the week. This seems like a good way to punctuate the importance of casting your ballot.
