~Life is Excellent
Best business partner ever! Look how tired she is from her morning run and exploration. She also rounded up the cat who escaped this morning. ❤️
She has the best life! She is loving her hikes!
We realize China is one of Boise’s busiest women–her business, her family, and the community require a lot of her. We appreciate her thinking of us–sharing this update. It is great to know this little Boise Longhair is doing well.

We just got the results back from the 16 week Titer test. Stone tested positive for both antibodies, which is great! However, the vet technician warned me that Stone could still be at risk and that they suggest the 16 week vaccination. I am holding strong.
Stone is very much at home here, loves his big brother, Blue, tolerates his crate, devours his food and then heads for Blue’s bowl (and shock of shock, Blue lets him eat from his bowl!), and continues to be the world’s best snuggler. Everyone stops me on our daily walks to coo over how sweet he is. Stone is really smart too – and we start Obedience Classes in May.
But who leaves out dog treats when a Weim is waiting for the vet???
Thank you for our little angel. We love him so.
As I always say–thank you, Victoria, for the update on Stone. You have been so excellent as sending things that I can share on the Blog. It means a lot to us.
We love to hear that Stone has settled into his routine and that he is doing well in every way. These photos are precious. I know everyone is going to appreciate seeing them.
~ Her Birthday and Life
Maelee has brought much joy to our family. She loves to run, play, fetch and go on hiking adventures with the whole family. Not much time in the water, yet (still a little chilly on the coast).
Yes, she still tries to test us now and then (normal for puppy stage), mostly when it comes to leash walking. She prefers the running free with voice commands option like at the farm.
So many adventures already made and more to come, not much down time in this activity family and she loves it!
Thank you for all you do! ~ Keaty
We are excited to have this fabulous update. It is always good news to learn that one of the pups is bringing joy to someone. I am sure everyone else is delighted to see her adventures, too. Thank you–thank you, for remembering us, and for allowing us to share this news on the blog.
Good morning! Duchess slept through the night and was a bit of a bed hog! Imagine that!
Duchess was such a cuddly bug last night! When I sat down this morning with my coffee she curled up on my lap next the to cat. It was a pretty awesome morning! Now I am excited for Saturday morning when I don’t have to get up and get ready for work.
Foster has Diesel
~Duchess is for me, right?
Well, I will share her of course (with Foster)–but not all the time. Still, these guys have my heart. Here are some photos from picking her up to getting settled in at home. Diesel is still working on the idea –he and Duke were friends, but she is something new and different.
My beautiful boy, Foster, is infected with the Weimaraner virus. I think we are both hopelessly in love with these wonderful creatures.
Dear Sheila–I am sad you lost the beloved Duke, at the same time I am happy you had Diesel there to bridge the gap. He and Foster made the loss a bit less if anything could. We are also delighted that we happened to have a gorgeous Silver Gray Female that could slip into your life. (BTW) It was precious to see Foster and how he reacted to the whole process. He is such a sweet boy, with a big heart. You are a good Mama.
~The Much Loved Duke
Friday, April 5th –It is with a heavy broken heart I wanted to let you know we lost Duke (Dusty x Gracie) last night. I knew this day would come but are we ever ready to lose part of our heart and soul?? Foster came home from school to bloody urine and diarrhea. Duke has turned 13 January 2nd and I couldn’t see him suffer. I had a vet come to the house so he could die peacefully on his couch.
It has been a rough couple of days. The news of Duke’s passing came less than twenty-four hours before Dusty’s departure. We appreciate how much he was loved. Thank you, for the beautiful life your family gave him.
I thought to give you an update about our Luna. It has been nearly a month and a half since we brought her home. She has fit into our family perfectly and changed our lives in many ways. She is so expressive, smart, goofy and sweet. She became fast friends with our alpha male resident cat — they play together constantly and sometimes cuddle together in a rare moment when they are both sleepy at the same time.
Luna is adored by many and attracts a lot of attention everywhere we bring her. She is a blue beauty. We have been socializing her as much as possible and she is doing great around other dogs and people. She has an endless amount of energy that keeps us on our toes. She loves to chew, and we’re trying our best to keep her from chewing on the wrong things. Potty training and crate training have been an interesting process — she has made improvements slowly but surely.
The crate is not her friend, and I think it’s because she doesn’t like being left alone (she is truly a velcro dog). But she has improved, and now only barks for about five minutes after going in the crate, instead of the thirty minutes she started out with. Since she is crated during the day with a break from our dog walker, we let her sleep with us at night, and she loves to cuddle. We are looking forward to starting training classes with her in a couple of weeks which will hopefully curb some of her bad habits such as jumping up on things/people, biting, and barking excessively when she doesn’t get what she wants (such a “terrible twos” thing to do)! She weighed in at 25 lbs yesterday at the vet, a 10 lb gain from three weeks ago! We are looking forward to taking her camping and hiking this summer.
This gem has completely changed our lives! We spend every moment with her and can’t imagine life without her. You can follow her Instagram at @luna.and.monty

Keep working with her–you’ve got this. Her life sounds pretty darned nice to us.
Thought you might like a 12week (almost 13) update on our out Henry!
He’s amazing. He loves to play fetch and so good at the return. He is learning and listening so well. Still mastering the potty training, but great as long as we are paying attention! He’s such a funny pup and so smart! He is able to play hide and seek with toys and people. He’s catching on so we’ll to words we use. He is obedient to sit, stay, lay down, come and ‘outside’ (our word for potty!) He has even mastered wiping his feet when he comes back in, on the rug…. For a treat of course! He has grown SO much and going to need a bigger bed soon!
Sorry some of the pics are blurry! He’s not still for long! ~Jill and Clint
Hello There–we are so happy to hear from you. Just look at what is happening, you are doing great things. We cannot be happier to hear the news and to these photos. Thanks ever so much!
~ Grandpa Will Reports–Part One
Since we got Ace on Feb. 8, 2019, the Spight household has been a whirlwind of activity! I’m happy to report my first stint as a “Grandpa” has gone well. Elle (Ace’s Mom) has been doing an outstanding job and continues to show amazing patience for her first very own puppy!
Since day 1, Ace has slept in Elle’s room and she’s the one who’s been getting up at night and taking him outside. Every now and then she asks for an assist from Grandpa or Nana when she’s had a tough night with Ace or if she has Volleyball tournaments the next day. So we swap rooms for the night and let her get some much needed rest.
Ace has done wonderful, we are following the Owyheestar protocol to the letter and have gotten him to the vet for his first round of shots (for us), and has his 2nd appointment soon for his 2nd set of shots. After that we plan to do the tieter test and am excited to explore the lower cost option you mentioned in a blog awhile back. We appreciated the BLOG article a week or two ago, concerning one of Ace’s litter mates who was getting more food and got soft stool. We observed the exact same thing, Ace was asking for MORE food, and when we increased it, his stool got MUCH softer, so we reduced it a little and it’s a little better. Still softer than we would like, but we continue to monitor.
We are so proud of Elle–it is a lot of work to raise the Weimaraner puppy. Of course, she has the best ever parents to help out when things become difficult. Nonetheless, Ace is turning out fantastic because of her expert care and attention to detail.
I know everyone loves seeing the photos–and they look forward to reading more about Ace and his adventures. Thank you, Grandpa, Will for the update.
~ We Miss Our Sweet Girl
This video (click here) was a couple years ago, after Cabela had had her teeth cleaned and a small growth removed from her eyelid. Ella (our middle kiddo) was all about taking care of her.
Thank you so much for chatting with me, I’ve found comfort in sharing our memories of Cabela. Like you, I feel like it was just yesterday that you were emailing me to tell me her miraculous birth story. She is so very missed.
I know we can relate to the loss or the fear of the loss of our beloved Weimaraner. No one is ever prepared to say goodbye. Cabela had the best possible family and life–for that, we are ever so thankful.
Her family knows she cannot be replaced, but Caleb (the gray male they got from us some years ago), needs a new sister. So, soon Clover (another Blue Female) will join this family. We are honored to know them, and touched by their loyalty.
