Just a quick note to let you know that my sweet, loving, energetic and manipulative Pushkin graduated from the novice obedience training class tonight. He received a score of 94 out of 100 points. Half of the test was done off leash. We start the advanced class sometime in September. A great 9-month birthday present.~Marie
Jorja is loving up on her “interim” Mom, Emma. Arleen and Emma took care of her until she could make the journey to Belgium. She hasn’t seen Emma since she was 16 weeks old, but she remembered her. Jorja was a trouper, she made the 8 hrs flight from Brussels to Chicago, hopping into her crate with ease. Through customs in Chicago, back into her crate after a drink and potty break for the 6 hr. flight to Portland, OR. She was happy to see cousins Arliss (Arleen’s Blue), Auto and Izzy. She seems to have a crush on Arliss.
Jorja is happy and loving her new home 🏡. Her new favorite word is beach. She and I have started walking with a ladies walking group. She loves to run, greet people as well as other dogs. One lady calls her the new LB greeter. Not to forget the birds–she still loves them too.I am thrilled with her approach to the water. She also hasn’t been in the water since at Arleen’s when a puppy, but she is in it now! It is going well. We are home near family, she has adjusted. We are doing well.~Eileen
Rocks the Dog Park
~Sleepy Boy Afterward
Winchester is 16 weeks old and he is so happy and playful. For today’s adventure, we took him on his first trip to the dog park. Winchester loved all the new smells and running free. He was very well behaved the whole time. He was so sleepy when he got home then it was time for cuddles. Brandon and I love having this sweet boy he is truly a blessing.
Thank you, we truly appreciate this little note concerning Winchester (AKA Chester). The fact that he brings you joy is evident. We love seeing all your posts celebrating the moments as well as the achievements. Keep up the great work.
At Sixteen Weeks
~We can Report
I wanted to give you a quick Milly update. She is 16 weeks old today and weighing in at 28lbs. I’m so curious as to how big she will be, how large was her mom? She is such a sweet girl with the perfect amount of spunk!She is patient (mostly 😉) with the kiddos and is such a quick learner! The piranha syndrome is slowing down a bit too which is great. She has taken to her crate like a champ and enjoys most everyone we meet, person or dog.
We have been working with her on pheasant scent and a wing and she has a beautiful point! I have included a picture of her pointing below. We plan to expose her to some live birds soon.
She had her titer test today in lieu of the 16-week vaccine and her vet says he predicts she will have good numbers! Thank you for such a wonderful pup! All your hard work is evident! We had such an amazing experience with our last Weim, I was worried I would never have such a wonderful experience again. Milly is proving that she is up to the challenge of taking over where her predecessor left off!
~and your answer
I must say—I find this the most obnoxious thing about the Weimaraner puppy—the mouthing and biting. Even though it is shark-like (despite what some folks think), it is not aggression. They are a very mouthing-type of a puppy—possibly the worst of all.
How delightful it is to have an engaging and friendly Weimaraner. Not every Weim welcomes those outside their inner circle.
You folks are doing fabulous with her. Thank you, for doing the titer test instead of automatically doing a 16-week puppy shot. And for staying on top of other things as well. Once they arrive, the work begins afresh. Thank you, for all you are doing and have done with her. I am excited to hear more in the future.
Here she is, the big one year old, enjoying her birthday bone 🙂Thanks for all you do, Cliff and Shela!We love our spunky and affectionate girl!Sincerely, Amanda

List a Caption for this snapshot in the comments.
I was thinking “Don’t shake the bed.”
What a great photo–thanks Mikelle. I am glad you and your best friend share so much.
~ Learning the Ropes
Maelee has been learning a lot; how to go up/down 2-3 steps on the backyard deck, still retrieving, crate training (though she did not like) and potty training (only a couple of pee accidents). Her 1st vet app. is set for tomorrow and should go smoothly; very healthy & full of energy!! Here are a few pics from this evening!We are so thankful for what you do:)
We appreciate families like you. I noticed we started the process in February–so the wait was shorter than it might have been. Nevertheless, it is always seemingly a long time.
People ask the typical waiting time. I think somewhere close to six-months; however, it depends. As I always say, we cannot predict when and if we will get a litter. If the litter arrives, we cannot predict the sex of the pups–sometimes the coat color. Of course, we cannot guess what the people on the list above you will do either. (Haha)
A Good Fit For Us
~Loves Her Routine/Gets Into Everything!
and his Tiny Hyoomans
Its been awhile since I sent an update. So I thought I’d share a couple of tidbits with you.
Colby decided that there was juuuuust enough space to squeeze into my chair with me for some lovins. Then, the tiny humans decided that there was room for them, too. So we took a few photos. You can see his enthusiasm as the photo shoot progressed. He still refused to budge from his perch, though! He’s a very patient big brother. As soon as the tiny humans left, he got comfy again and stayed a while longer. He got up for a potty break, but as I am sitting here writing this, he has found his place back on my lap for another morning siesta. What a ham!
Here is a video of him eating an ice cream cone. This is something I have never done. But after a series of events that led us to the vet’s office, I decided to help him unload his stress by hiding his first dose of meds in an unexpected treat. He had no complaints. Feel free to share on your blog if you’d like!Colby is a little lonely since our lab passed away and we have been looking into finding him a new companion. We are considering another weim and would like to look into possibly getting on the waiting list for another pup when I get home from my deployment in January.
