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.
~ You Never Know Where It Will End
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.
~When You See Your First Elk
I am sure Bisbee is wondering what is that huge scary thing is doing in the yard–it doesn’t belong here. Seriously, a butterfly can tag the Weimaraner, but this critter is far more unnerving.
~Traumatized by Bugs
One would think that this 72 pound, 8-year old Weimaraner is totally fearless! She protects us from the mailman, from anyone who rings our doorbell, UPS Trucks, squirrels, cats, people walking down our street pushing strollers or dogs, and from the bellows from an anxious bloodhound who’s owners walk him regularly near our street! She has a very loud bark that may cause concern to anyone who does not know her. Big dog + loud bark = perhaps a dog to be feared!!
Maizie has one fear in life though….flying insects! She knows the word “BUG.” When someone says that word, she instantly looks UP! She has learned bugs usually fly high—ceiling height. She is afraid of bugs! She will quickly exit the room to “hide” in her crate! Here is a photo snapped two years ago of Maizie “hiding in her crate” after being traumatized by seeing a fly! (ears back, look of concern!) This morning there was a fly in our bedroom. She shivered for an hour while I petted her to console her to assure her everything will be alright. She still took refuge in her crate. Jerry eventually got rid of the pesky fly that traumatized our sweet almost fearless Maizie!
Too funny — and I am sure her fear of bugs was accidentally ingrained. Our most natural responses are (typically) what we need to avoid. She is a sweet precious paper-shredding girl.
~Not Something you See Every Day
Here is our Dasher, our Weimaraner version for Snoopy on his doghouse!
He has grown into such handsome lad.
We are quarantined but also enjoying our boys antics.
Hope you and Cliff are staying safe and sound.
Dave & Audrey
What a guy–Dasher put a smile on my heart. Thank you for remembering us and sharing your sweet photo.
~ How About This?!?
Here’s a way to exercise your Weimaraner and to have a ton of fun too–unless you end up on the ground.
These two are amazing.
~ Lu’s Mama Tells All
Lu getting ready for her afternoon run – she prances around, can barely keep butt and two feet on the ground, total attention to her master, Steve.
We all know how Weim’s love to fart, at least the two we’ve had do. Lu will frequently fart all the way up the stairs (we were calling her “Toots” for a while! – but it also happens when she gets excited. Just now, Steve was getting her gear ready for the afternoon run, and she was dancing in circles then gave a little “toot”! Steve looked down at her and said “You’d better watch out, you’re gonna get a flat tire”!! OMG – kinda of you-had-to-have-been-there moment, but I laughed so hard I cried. Simple pleasures
Well, I admit that was quite the story–and I am positive someone else laughed and cried, too. Here is where I might mention that we have had such good luck with a specific digestive aid–Doc Roy’s® GI SYNBIOTICS. We don’t make a nickel recommending this product, but if it helps you and your Weimaraner, we are happy to pass along the information.
~ We celebrated Christmas Weim-style
Hope your Christmas was a blessed one! I know ours was!!
Nutz and my grandpup, Rhea, had a good one too!!
They received new speaker toys, which got destroyed by the end of the night. For some reason, they want that sqeaker to chew on. Heehee. They also received some special treats, which they LOVED, and wouldn’t share. Haha
They thought it was their job to help us open our gifts, so of course we let them. Who can deny a weim that pleasure? 🥰
Thank you so much for our blessed pup! Cant wait for her sister to get here!
Robin and Mark
~ Or Not
Daisy’s parents say, “she has the best personality” I think she makes them laugh a lot — and is a good snuggle-girl. What else does the soul need?
Maybe this brings a smile to you. I know it does to me. Possibly Daisy had a bit of help to achieve the look, but who cares?!? There are a few Weimlovers that groan every time we post features the Longhair, but others celebrate the fun, the joy, and the look.
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.
