Under the Weather

~Awesome Girl–Jorja

We haven’t been feeling well, so the house wasn’t kept up with properly.  Today disinfecting the house I found these open chips of the coffee table near her toys. They were there for at least 2 days. She took the bone off the table while she was with me. So proud she never touched the chips!


Hard day today! Missing Arleen! 
But these good and new things (Pheasant Hunting) make me appreciate the great start she had from you all and Arleen. Xoxoxo Eileen and Jorja

Dear Eileen, I know so many of our readers feel your pain of the loss of your lovely Weim-loving sister Arleen (and of course, Arliss who passed not long after her). Arleen was a friend to so many–an advocate for pets. We are sorry for the loss you must face day in and day out.

Thank you–for this cute story about Jorja. We sincerely hope you are feeling better. Prayers for you, Eileen.

Bo’s Nose Work

~Something Altogether Different

When doesn’t our Weimaraner make us laugh? Well, the answer is simple–when they reduce us to tears. (OMG) But thankfully for us Weimar-Addicts, there are more laughable moments than not. What others would consider insane, we find entertaining, enchanting, and hilarious. I guess that speaks volumes about us.

No, Bo didn’t snag a snack–eat the pie or whatnot. This time, he left the evidence of a whipped cream treat on his nose. It is too cute not to share. I hope you agree.

Nutz-nabbed

~Beautiful Thief, she is–


When ever I take a shower, I have to leave the door cracked, otherwise, she will scratch and whine, waking up the rest of the house (she gets quite loud, haha).  


And EVERY single time I get out of the shower, I have a piece of clothing “gone”….yep my beautiful Weim is a “thief”.  I  usually find it under her, or in her mouth.  She hasn’t damaged anything (yet),  but if I’m missing something, all I have to do is find her (which isn’t hard) and I’ll find my clothes.  Gotta love little thieves (lol).


Looking forward to our next thief!
Robin and Mark

Well, we have been friends for a long time–like so many people in our life, it was the Weimaraner that introduced us. This addiction to this crazy breed cannot be explained to everyone. It is most certainly not for everyone, either. (That being said)–we look forward to placing another with you as soon as possible. Thank you–for your loyalty, friendship, and the love of the Weimaraner.

At My Friend’s Place

~Me, Winchester, Visiting Luna and Tikka

Mom took me to play with my friends at Luna and Tikka’s. Their parents are always so nice to host our playdates.

Mom put my costume on me and I ran around and played with my friends while our parents ate food. The food smelled so good but Mom wouldn’t let me have any. I got to play for 3 hours! Then I went home and had a nice long nap! Cant wait to see my friends again soon! ~ Chester

Dear Winchester–you lead an extraordinary life. You have a tough job taking care of your Mama and entertaining others. Cliff and I are glad you can get to the playdate to Bill and Nancy’s Salem home.

Remember Jorja

~Previously living in Belgium–Now in the Pacific NW

Jorja Snoozing–So tired!

Jorja is doing great Ken,  Papa, took her out pheasant hunting, her first time,  according to him, he’s very pleased. She flushed a pheasant right away and it startled Ken wasn’t ready to shoot it so He missed it. But he was so pleased with her. New adventures for her!

~And His Orange Dog

Brady is growing fast and I’m behind on getting pictures to you. 

Orange Dog lasted about two week before he lost his head and just came apart at the seams.

At the Memory Center

~With Maize

I thought it might be time for a new Maizie story.😊  (Livee X Blue 02.28.12)

My mother is 95—almost 96.  To say that Maizie adores her is an understatement!  Whenever we bring my mom to our house, we have to put Maizie out in the backyard and seat Mom in a chair so that mom is in a stable place before we let Maizie in to greet her!  The greeting (crying with excitement, whining, nibbling on Mom’s hands) goes on for a full 5 minutes until we tell Maizie that’s enough!  Mom always says, “I wish everybody was this happy to see me!”   


Last summer, we moved Mom from Independent Living to Memory Care in the same facility.  On a long day of packing her former apartment, we needed to eat dinner.   Mom was hungry, and so were we….and we had Maizie with us all day.  (We brought Maizie’s food)  Where can we go nearby where Maizie would be welcome?  Jerry went down to the restaurant in the building my mother lives in.  He told the Maitre d’, “We would like to eat here.  It’s been a long day for us all, but we have our dog with us.  Is she welcome here?”  The astute Maitre d’ looked at Jerry with a gleam in her eye but in a serious tone slowly asked him this question, “Can you say she is a Service Dog?”  Jerry picked up on that!  He and the Maitre d’ communicated with their eyes!  Jerry recited back, “Yes—I can say She is a Service Dog!


We seated ourselves with Maizie—against a window, away from other guests in the restaurant.  We kept her on a short leash.  She stayed lying down….although inching herself under the table in hopes of spillage!  She was a good girl.  Her only faux pas was a short bark at a new couple who walked in the door!  Yes, we can say:  SHE IS A SERVICE DOG!

Love from Linda, Jerry, Maizie and Grandma (as Maizie knows her)

Thank you for sharing this story with us. We think you have done amazing this with this fabulous girl. Maybe we ought to mention this now, Maize shares the exact same lineage as Gabriel (our Russian Connection).

~Pillow Anyone?

Big Brother Blue using Stone as a pillow. Love. 

Breeder Comment

Stone is working out for Big Brother Blue–the perfect pillow. If you have a couple of Weims, what more could you hope?

Paisley

We absolutely do love her! She sure is crazy but she is amazing

No Water 4 Me

The funniest story I think I have about her is the first time we took her swimming in the lake. We thought she would love the water! Well turns out she can’t swim at all and she isn’t too fond of the water either. Her body went straight vertical with her head above the water and her feet straight down with her arms splashing up and down! We were right off the dock and in shallow water but she didn’t know what to do! Her brother is a German short hair that loves to swim and loves the water but she won’t get deeper then her belly!

She is the center of her little universe. We wouldn’t change a thing.

Thank you! Ashley, Boise, Idaho

Thank you, Ashley, for sharing this funny story about Paisley. I am glad she is dear to your heart–quirks and all.

For those wondering–it can take a bit of knack to get your Weimaraner water-friendly. Even if they swam at OwyheeStar, they might balk when you present water. We have written a previous blog on getting your Weimaraner to swim–there are some excellent pointers–click here.
