In the Limelight

~Our Charlie Mae Shines

Well, that is interesting. You might remember Charlie Mae as the girl who wears the Christmas lights every December. Here she is in all her glory–, isn’t this spectacular? Oh–what more can we say?

Emmy

~Weim in a Wig

I Love her. Love the variation from the norm. She definitely gets comments when we are out and about – especially now the she looks like a “Weim in a wig” – Weim snout framed by curly ears.  

Yesterday (May 26th) Emmy spent the afternoon playing with a French Bulldog and today we went to my parents. Here she is with Bentley – a  3-year-old standard poodle.

Thank you, Jill, for sharing the photo and the video of Emmy playing with your parent’s Standard Poodle. It fun to see her in action.

Well, it looks like the perfect perch, too!

Blue

~ At Your Service

I just can’t believe Stone has come into my life. He is so smart. Ringing the bells to go outside already! My friend came over to drill a piece of wood into the bottom of the backyard fence so Stone can’t escape and the sound freaked Stone out. He ran straight to Blue for protection. And Blue has been barking ferociously at EVERY passerby when we are outside in the backyard. I think he is protecting Stone. 
This little guy is the greatest gift. I mean look at those little eyes!

Thanks for the insight into Stone’s life as well as the great story of Blue’s ownership. Not every situation is going to come together so quickly. We are happy for you, Stone, and Blue. Thanks!

Maggie

~ We Celebrate 5 Years in December

Just wanted to send the yearly photos of our Maggie who turned 5 12/19.  Still bringing us lots of happiness and joy!  Our boys love to get her all riled up when they hide her ball. Too bad their hiding skills are no match for her nose!  

We have also started to teach her how to find sheds.  She is so smart!  Anytime you say “let’s go” or “bird” or “duck” her ears perk right up.  She still loves to cuddle with the cat.  Phil and I can barely get our running shoes tied and she already is standing at the front door!    The neighbors think it is pretty cool that we have her hold her own leash on our walks……Can’t imagine our lives without her.

One more thing….we take her collar off at night and in the morning we tell her to “go get her clothes” and she brings us her collar….She’s so much fun!


Hope all is well with you!Phil and Gretchen

Thank you, for another update on Maggie and her life with you. She looks so happy–glad you love her so much.

Berkley

Our Life Made Better

We wanted to share some new pictures of Berkley. We love her so much… Even though she still does very puppy-ish things! Bless you! Amanda

Wow–it is great to see some new photos of Berkley. There is nothing that makes us happier when it comes to the Weimaraners than seeing the fabulous life they are leading — being included in activities as well as being an integral part of the family. Thank you ever so much.

From our Home to Yours

We are honored to share with you something we hold dear. Thank you, all of you who have followed along and shared so many moments during the last year. As 2019 opens, we find ourselves having another 365 days –if all goes according to the plan. What will we do with our time? Who will we share our life with–what kind of relationship will it be?

If we think about it, it is like a writing a chapter in our book–we have laid the foundation and set the plot in action. Nevertheless, there are twists and turns. We are free to change, improve, adapt, and squeeze every moment to make the most of it. We cannot control as much as we would like–hopefully, we can manage our attitude and stay positive even in the darker moments.

Sharing our life with the Weimaraner or two is extraordinary–I choose to believe that they bring the best out in us. Yes, there are challenges–some we could not have imagined. Most of us Weim-lovers weather the issues well. Sometimes the mishap to our chagrin is unwelcome–others we find entertaining. Friend, I hope you are walking into the new year with at least one fur-family member. Everyone needs that kind of friend. I think it is safe to say that here because the non-dog loving crowd doesn’t read our blog, right?!?

New Year Resolutions

~ The Weimaraner Kind

As explained by OwyheeStar’s Boone

The New Year brings thoughts of starting fresh. “Woof”

We fur folks are not a whole lot different. We put down the best-laid plans. So, I want to share my ideas for 2019 with you. Well, you might notice these are more for my human’s entertainment–or let’s say these are suggestions–the kind that accompanies a strong wag.

Diet

I like my kibble just fine–Cliff, Mama says I need more calories because I burn more than the average dude. So, I am thinking a few extra add-ins are coming for 2019. I like that high-calories topping, the NuVet, and the occasional chunk of steamed pumpkin. “Woof” I, like a lot of guys don’t need to watch my waistline unless we are talking about getting too skinny. I need a little fat right by my tail. I think it gives that hubba-hubba-look the girls like. Feel free to throw in the occasional cookie–thank you!

Exercise

As you might know one of my favorite exercises is chasing the girls. I also like to run around and play with Manfred–you know, the new Longhair Stud guy. Cliff, I think we ought to include more stick-fetching work as well as a few more birds. You are getting lazy, my friend. Mama says I need some stellar photos–whatever that might be. It sounds like work to me. Let’s skip and go for walk to the sanctuary.

Cash

I must admit I have heard about the Puppuccino. Other OwyheeStar Weims rave about their parents driving through Starbucks to get a treat. Let’s add a little more pizazz into my life (relieve you of some weight of your pocket change). You could use a little more fun too. We could drive up (leaving the farm once in a while) for the occasional treat–it would not hurt you to let go of your wallet once in a while. “Woof”

Behaviors

I am a good boy. I don’t jump up. I don’t pull on the lead. I can sit, etc. I think I have it pretty well down–so I don’t need to brush up on my manners. Maybe we could fix you Cliff–it seems you bring the occasion clump of mud. “Woof” I should say you and Stackhouse do, and Mom doesn’t always find it endearing, so you see I have one paw up on you, dude.

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.

A Penchant for Paper!

      ~Naughty Maizie, Or Not!

No Paper on My Lips or Anywhere

You wouldn’t believe that this little beauty, MAIZIE, age 6.5, has a penchant for paper!  

You can file this in a chapter of “Weim Crimes!”  Yesterday, we left the house for an hour.  Maizie stayed home.  Usually always on our return home, she happily greets us—smiling, chattering, nibbling, wiggling with glee.  Yesterday she did not greet us.  Uh oh.   (She doesn’t greet us if she’s been naughty).   I found her laying in her living room sofa bed—ears back and shivering!  Uh oh.  Major telltale guilt!  We did a search of the house to find the “evidence” and came up with nothing!  We assumed then that she was just “thinking” about doing something naughty—reason for her guilty behavior.  That was, UNTIL…..
…..I went to make dinner!  Before we left home, I had printed a new recipe, Martha Stewart’s “Bacon-Mushroom-Leek Galette.”  It printed out on 3 pages.  I had left it on the dining room table.  It was nowhere to be found!  
BUSTED!  She didn’t leave a trace!  I had to reprint it to make dinner!  This is why we close our office door when we leave the house, can’t leave mail on the table, or leave a package in sight!  This girl’s got a penchant for paper!
Linda ❤️🐾

We cannot believe how smart this girl is, and as I replied–this is not her first paper raid you told us about. Old habits die hard. I guess the good news is it is paper—just so she doesn’t take to eating cash or important documents. (OMG)
