~ 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.
~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.
~ We Adopted Jack and He is Coming Home with us Soon
Meanwhile, I went into town yesterday to grab some things for Jack. Bowls for food, bed, harness and a toy. Welp…. Benson found the toy and turned it into his!!! 😂🥳🥰😳
We are excited for Jack to join his new forever family. We also understand why Benson adopted the new toy for his own. (Haha) We have a couple of those –I am thinking we ought to buy a box of them. But with all the hoarding, I feel badly wanting to make sure we have these for the future. (OMG)
They are a favorite around here.
~Or the Paw Going for a Goodie
I had to take this picture of Olli this AM as I am not sure if his paw got stuck on the cabinet or he was just caught redhanded!! This was going on while his dear sister, Indi, was posing in the backyard. If she only knew what she was missing!
All is well with Olli and Indi. They are both healthy and are keenly aware of all rabbit movements under the snow filled deck :). It is a riot watching them go back and forth trying to ferret out the creatures. One of these days they will be rewarded for all of their efforts 🙂
Hope all is well! Mary
Thank you, Mary, for capturing this bit of impending mischief. (Haha) We love hearing about your two Longhairs.
~ 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.
I wish I had a video. Poor Opus. He’s so special 🤦🏼♀️
This isn’t the first time we’ve had to check out this “dog”.
~The Self-appointed Cave
I just had to share this photo with you. When we leave for an hour or two we put Bisbee in our laundry room with his crate door open so he can roam in and out of the crate and have a little more space to stretch. In his exploration of the laundry room he discovered a space he finds preferable to his crate for a little nap! He’s such a quirky little character!! It won’t be long before he no longer fits in his self-appointed cave.
~ 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.
