~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.

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).
Big Brother Blue using Stone as a pillow. Love.
Stone is working out for Big Brother Blue–the perfect pillow. If you have a couple of Weims, what more could you hope?
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.
~Our Silly, Happy Boy
Audrey and I want to share a short video and photo of our silly Dasher . He will be two in August , and is happy , healthy and super energetic, especially if there is a frisbee or day involved. Imagine that!
We could not be happier to have him in our family and owe you and Cliff a debt of gratitude. He’s perfect!
Have a wonderful summer.
We will with our Dash!
Audrey & Dave
We remember all too well our early conversations and the pondering of which pup you might end up getting. In the end, apparently, we got it right. We could not be happier to hear you and your Dash are delighted with each other.

I wanted you to see our Sky–and to thank you, for a great Weim. ~ Guy
We appreciate knowing that Sky is doing well, and that she is much-loved. Thanks for the photo–tell Sky I am sorry she had to endure having her photo taken. (Haha)
~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?

~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.
~Mud and This
I know when spring has returned as the moles or gophers, as the case may be, have returned.
Pushkin is on the trail of the offending varmits that leave piles of dirt everywhere. I am not sure what he will do if he ever catches one!
What can we say? It is a battle of the yard–who will win? We are surprised he has not yet caught one. He will we are sure, then you will know the answer to your question.
