Monday’s are a day of choice for hiding–but usually, it is not an option. Our Weims express our deepest feelings and give us looks that say it all. Maybe they are not the breed for everyone, but for some –nothing else will do.

If only we could read his mind. I am not sure if he likes being sandwiched on the sofa or if he prefers to have it to himself.
Winter is coming to an end and we are so excited to spend another spring and summer season with Nix! He loved exploring with us. We learned quickly he isn’t the best fishing partner though as he dives in every fishing hole looking for birds. Any bird, he perks right up. Even the word bird lol! The beach and river walks are still his favorite. Lately he has brought mice in to show off. Typically they surprise me when I roll over on the bed or couch and there he has a friend for me to see. Sticks are the same. I woke to a stick in my bed the other morning! He loves the girls most and swaps from my bed to our daughters every night. We are really leaning towards another one to add to the family. I keep trying to convince myself it’s not a good idea but it comes up in every family conversation so maybe it’s a sign 🙂
Nixon shares his finds with you, and you are an excellent sport about it. Wow!
I suppose it is realistic to admit the Weimaraner might be one of the more entitled family members. They quite possibly get by with antics that some parents would not allow human children to do. (Oops)
The best seat in the house is often the sofa, the sofa back, your favorite chair, or anything that provides the comfort and visual advantage they need. After all, they are considered a Watchdog–nothing misses their eye if it interests them. They are game for the taunting squirrel, birds, bunnies, and even the occasional toad. Of course, sky raisins can entertain them endlessly.
It’s not your typical hunting dog brag but Dyson won a cover photo contest for Oregon, Washington and Idaho Weimaraners Facebook group with this double derp picture. He was waiting intensely for a ball to be thrown. He’s such a lovable clown.
Mardo–thanks for sending this along to us. What a fun and funny photo capture. Way to go, Dyson. You are a winner!
~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?
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.
~ 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.
I have to entertain my hoomans, and their friends. So, here you go–
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.
My sweet boy just turned two in March and he is just the best. He lives a semi-charmed life in downtown Saint Paul where we walk 2 to 3 miles every morning together and then he goes out a few times a week on pack walks with a group of other dogs that live in the neighborhood along with a good friend of mine, who is also a dog trainer. He LOVES going for walks with his friends! He is so proud and whenever a new dog is added to the pack, he wants to show them how to do it, “This is how we walk”.
He is THE GOOFIEST dog I’ve ever met. He smiles at me when I come home and he is so affectionate, leaning into hugs and giving lots of kisses. I have only had short hairs prior to Tilman and I have to say that in the last 6 months, his fluff has really come into it’s own. He is three different colors of Weim and the hair behind his shoulders, down his back and on his entire torso has turned into this long bunny soft light colored hair. He gets complimented all the time about what a gorgeous boy he is!
Tilman is an extraordinary example of the breed. He is curious and sometimes cautious but not fearful.He looks to me for his cues. He is friendly and loves everyone he meets. He is whip smart and will learn anything you can think to teach him so fast. He is a helper and wants see and smell and try everything. He loves to learn and show what he knows and was a breeze to train because he is so eager to please however, like any willful breed, I have needed to remain consistent with his training. TIlman also loves the water but is still hesitant to swim much. He will not hesitate to lay in a mud puddle, however.
Take care– Emily and Tilman (and little big sister Nara, the Chihuahua)
We are so happy to hear from you–and to see how well Tilman is doing. Stackhouse is a mud puddle flopping Weim–OMG We love that Tilman smiles –we have a Longhair girls that smiles and wags her entire body. It is adorable.

My hero has once again saved me from the evil sky raisin…he did not take his 👀 off it until it was no more!😂🤣🐾🤦🏻♀️
It is all fun and games until the encounter with the Jalapeno variety slips into the mix. Sky raisin season is approaching quickly — have seen a few, but know they are preparing to bombard us with their in your face presence all too soon.
