Thor

~In The Driver’s Seat

Thor got his first driver’s lesson!  How are you and Cliff doing?  Thor has been doing very well. He goes on runs every morning and evening.  Gets lots of exercise and loves it!  I took him on a good few miles hike yesterday fishing and he was in heaven!   He’s very well behaved and trained.  He can heal, come, stay, sit and listens very well.  He’s got his aloof moments when he wants to play.  But he’s been an amazing family member.  

He now even walks our Rottweiler mix Hannah ! Lol. He literally grabs the leash and starts pulling her on the walks.  Lol it’s so funny

We also found out that Thor is not immune to Adeno virus, but we decided to NOT give him the vaccination for this because we read it’s rare for Weimes and not life threatening.  what do you recommend?

Breeder Comment

First, this is where we say we are not Licensed Veterinarians, nor are we Licensed Veterinary Technicians. Vaccine issues are a serious matter for this breed–no one can attest to the truth of this more than someone who has had their Weimaraner succumb to serious life-threatening vaccine reaction. The puppy shot vaccinates for Adeno Virus II–which is against upper respiratory infections. Click here to read more.

We are most happy to see Thor as a central part of your life–and we love the photos. Thank you–this is a cute update. We genuinely appreciate it.

Triple Weimar Life

~Weim craziness is our sanity

Just to let you know we are thinking of you all; you are in our thoughts and prayers

In these upside down times … its our faith and these three that keep us sane.

Thank you for all the joy and sanity that you bring to so many.

Jon, Laura and Grace (Bella Rae, Bacchus and Taun)

We meet the best people through the Weims. Thank you for being a loyal client–and remembering us with this thought. It means the world to us. We know the great lengths you went to acquire the three from us–no words cover it.

Coop and Levi

The Boys Who Bring Us Life

They take us on a run every day, or else. They rule the roost. We cannot live without Weimaraners

I cannot thank you enough for making our lives whole. Even though they are pushy, loud and in control of me.

Breeder Comment

We enjoy reading about their life (and antics with you)–thanks for this lovely update.

Murphy

~ At Your Service

I arrived not too long ago–and ever since then I have been working my way into their hearts (It didn’t require much. You Weimars know what I am talking about. I have a lot of other work to do–like any new Weim. The resident Weimaraner had to be won over, you understand.

More Importantly

I have to entertain my hoomans, and their friends. So, here you go–

Breeder Comment

Murphy, it is so fabulous the way you take care of your family–we know your Mama (Sylvia) pours a ton of love on you, too. You are a lucky boy. Well, the truth is you have your Mama by her tail–turning her head every which way. You are a very fortunate boy.

Mr. Wilson

~We call him that because he is just that special

We call Wilson Mr Wilson because he is just that special Very very smart so he keeps us on our toes! He belly’s up to our bar like a person and can reach most anything wants. We don’t know how much more he will grow because his hips are 3” higher than his shoulder and his shoulders will catch up!

We feel very fortunate to have Mr. Wilson in our lives! When he plays with toys, his favorite is most anything bigger than him or at least 2 toys! Thank you Shela and Cliff for another amazing Weim ♥️♥️♥️

Breeder Comment

I am not sure how you discovered all those years ago, or why you initially chose us, but our relationship spans several Weims and more than one decade. We are blessed to share the love of the Weimaraner. Thanks for your loyalty.

The Beloved Mesquite

~Ten Candles

I just want to send you a note celebrating The Beloved Mesquites 10th birthday. She has lived in her forever home with us here in Washington for just a little over three years now. She has been a great joy for us.

I was a little hesitant at first, because I had always owned Vizsla’s, I really knew nothing about Weimaraner’s, in the past three years I have changed my mind. The Weim is the most well mannered, intelligent dog I have been around. She wants to be a people rather than a dog.She loves going places in the car. When we first got her she would get sick riding in the car, not anymore. I think she was just nervous. Now when the car starts up she wants to go. She doesn’t bother a thing.

During the hot weather and the smoke from wild fires burning in the area now, I have been letting her stay inside as much as possible. She has decided she wants to sleep in bed with us. We started out with her on her mat, but she didn’t want any part of that, she wanted to be in the bed with us. Now I fix her a spot at the foot of the bed and she stays there all night. I figured that was safer than having a 70 lb. dog land on you, unexpectedly. If she needs to go outside, she gives you the famous ear flap. No doubt what she wants.We are both so glad that you and Cliff chose us for Mesquites forever home. She is greatly appreciated and loved.

Thank you, Lyle and Annette. I hope Porsche’s owner sees this, because Porsche is one of Mesquites offspring, I believe?

Breeder Comment

Hello Lyle and Annette–thanks for thinking of us. It is hard to believe that Mesquite is ten years old. What a fabulous Golden Year Placement she got when you found us. Yes, Porsche is a Mesquite X Stackhouse pup.

Julie’s Willow

This is a recent photo of Willow on her way to the vet to get cheatgrass removed from between her toes. We absolutely adore her and am very excited to add another OwyheeStar to our family. Thank you!

Breeder Comment

Hello, Julie–we are happy to see the photo of Willow–as well as to hear how much you love her. Sorry to hear about the cheatgrass–it is an evil menace waiting to happen. We are delighted to be working with you again.

Willie

~Our Snuggle Bug and More

Greetings! 
It’s been too long and my sincere apologies for not keeping you up-to-date with Willie. We had a baby and it has since been a crazy new world raising a human. Needless to say, Willie is our firecracker, snuggler, baby-loving pup, and even 4 years later, we are so happy to have him as a part of our family. 


As a breeder, I’m sure you have your worries about sending your babies off to families. Willie loves and is loved, and we appreciate finding you so much and choosing us as his forever home. 


To fill you in, Willie had a freak incident this year where he got stung by a bee in his eye. He almost lost it….but thank God for animal ophthalmologists and pig intestine grafts! Willie has both eyes and is doing great! 
Hope all is well and hopefully we can keep in contact on a more regular basis. I’m a terrible picture-taker but I included a few.


Sincerely, Brandi

Breeder Comment

We appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to update us about Willy. Wow–I am glad you were able to save his eye—what a horrible experience. And thank you for everything you have done with Willy thus far.

Tango

~The Ladies’ Man — Part One

As we continue to limit our exposure outside the house, the bulk of my social life consists of daily trips to the nearby dog park, sometimes supplemented by another outing if the temperature is tolerable. Tango has fun with lots of dogs, but it does seem as if he especially enjoys his time with the ladies.


At the dog park, he’s especially fond of three regulars: a Beagle, a Samoyed, and a Golden Retriever. Given the size difference, he’s fairly gentle with the Beagle, but the other two sure run him ragged. (That’s the point of a dog park run, right?)


We have a standing invitation to visit Judy’s co-worker’s farm. When we’re there, his running and wrestling matches with their Labrador turn positively ballistic. She really terrified him the first couple of times that we visited, but now he’s taller than her (she’ll have the weight advantage for a couple more months), so the tables are turning. A couple of weeks ago, her “parents” were away and we stopped in to let her run around, so that turned into four straight play dates in a row.

Breeder Comment

As we read your update, we were impressed on so many levels. You have managed an excellent socialization process despite the current COVID issue. And secondly, how Tango has changed your life–it is incredible how the Weimaraner changes a family structure and each of us in unpredictable ways. I like to think they make us better humans.

For our readers–watch for part two of Tango’s update. We know you look forward to hearing more about Tango’s life and experiences.


Enzo

~In St. George, Utah

This is Ashley! Casey and I are the proud and happy parents of Enzo! We picked him up back on May 2nd! His parents are Boone and Clover and he was born on February 28! I was wondering if you know if any of his siblings are in the Utah area? Las Vegas? We wanted to do a little reunion with his siblings if they are close! We are in St George but driving somewhere for a weekend so he can have some fun with his litter mates would be worth it for us!


He’s turning into a handsome dog! He’s very eager to learn and has a great sniffer on him! Can’t wait to get him trained on tracking/hunting!

He’s a Velcro dog for sure and loves to be involved in everything. We do let him sleep on our bed and he loves to snuggle but knows that breakfast is at 8 AM every morning and will never let us sleep past 8!

He has some adult Weimaraner friends and one of the other owners is getting a puppy weim in a few weeks! He plays hard and sleeps even harder. His favorite treats are pig ears Or cow tendons and he will usually carry them around the house and hide them until he is ready to eat them. He loves sunbathing in the morning after eating breakfast and his evening walks out by the fields where he can chase birds. He found us a deer leg that some coyotes had left – we did not let him pick it up but he pointed and got excited. He’s been the biggest blessing to us since Puppy Kane passed away in April. He sniffs Kane’s collar every once in a while and always seems to know when Kane is on my mind. He will boop my hand or leg or face with his snoot and give me a few kisses. It’s amazing. 


Anyway, I’m sorry for rambling on. We would just love to have a litter mate reunion! –Ashley

Breeder Comment

Hello, Ashley and Casey! It is so excellent to hear from you. As to meeting up with his littermates–they are somewhat scattered through the Pacific Northwest and even in California. Who knows what connection you might be able to make. Possibly one of them would connect with you via this post. Please stay in touch–we love hearing about the adventures of Enzo.

I must admit when people come to us having lost a pup from another breeder; I get nervous. We are thrilled that Enzo is thriving.
