One Year

Duke

  ~The Innocent or maybe not so much

FB_IMG_1538060106337This turd turned 1 September 26! He loves going for walks, camping, playing in the water, chasing the kids around the yard and sleeping on the couch.
FB_IMG_1538060118783It took quite a while for our other dogs to stop being grumpy with Duke, but for probably the last 6 months, they’ve stopped growling at him and they often play together.
Duke is a talker, he doesn’t bark excessively, but he definitely likes to voice his opinion! You can tell when he’s trying to get Laverne or Shirley to play with him, it’s a whiny bark.
We got him fixed at about 10 months and he did really well. I tried to keep him rested and not let him run around too much, but he really wasn’t having any of that! He loves to be outside!

He’s going to be doing some hunting this year. This weekend my husband is taking our son and Duke out, it’s open for duck, kids only weekend.

Happy Belated Birthday Duke. We are glad you have found your place in the family. It is so great to see these cute photos and to learn more about your life. Watch for the next part to this update soon.
If you live in the Treasure Valley can we recommend you consider Duke’s Mama for your next cake? Seriously, her treats are beyond delectable as well as stunning. She has a gift! A flare for making the icing into something spectacular. I am constantly amazed at her work. Please check her out on Facebook–click here.

Hello!

Hope you are well. Thanks for all you do for so many! Berkley is never far from us–like now, she is snuggled up next to me. Here is a photo of her with our daughter, Nora. They make a cute pair, right?

If ever the exhaustion overtakes me, it is folks like you that remind me all the effort is worth it. Thank you, for thinking of us. We truly appreciate it.

Pushkin

Novice Obedience

     ~This Happened!

20180814_181827Just 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.

Congratulations to the both of you! Those scores look really good to us. Keep up the great work, who knows where this might lead. We appreciate the update.

Reunions

It’s Amazing

     ~Jorja Remembered

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.

At Home

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.

PS: Here are our some of our very special friends

We were so happy to hear that Jorga was safely stateside; however, the picture you paint is beyond amazing. What an excellent traveler.
It sounds like she slipped into her new life. She loves the beach. She loves the people. She loves everything about her life. Isn’t that fabulous? Thank you, Eileen, for the share. If you live near Long Beach you might meet Jorga, she will be glad to make your acquaintance.

What a great photo–thanks Mikelle. I am glad you and your best friend share so much.

Zoe

A Good Fit For Us

  ~Loves Her Routine/Gets Into Everything!

Zoe1

We haven’t checked in for awhile and thought I would share a quick update!
Zoe is doing fabulous!  She loves her daily routine of morning fetch, outdoor time, nap, and evening walk/runs. She enjoys playing with her human brother & sister Tyler and Sadi and finding anything and everything to get into! She’s a great girl and I’m thrilled to have her in the family!
Take care! ~Courtney

Lovins

~With Colby

     and his Tiny Hyoomans

Colby and his Tiny Hyoomans3Its 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.

Breeder Comment

We are happy that Colby has brought so much joy to the family. He has adapted to change which is excellent. We sincerely look forward to working with you again. Thank you, for the great share. We and ( and I am sure all our readers would agree) thank you for your service, too!

The Naughtiest

Guess who’s birthday it is!

IMG_4448
Roy boy the Weim! I can’t believe Roy is TWO! (On 5/20) He is such a light in our lives even though he is such a hand full. Would not trade him for anything, we love our snuggly boy!
54723272525__03208A1D-8675-43EE-A9A6-714C1E26F123Roy is doing great! We recently just got over a case of the swimmers tail, we can’t keep him out of the water! And having a full tail probably contributed to that. Was so weird to see him not be able to wag his tail because he is always wagging that thing!
Still having aggression issues on a leash but I feel like he is getting better… he does wear a muzzle in congested areas. He’s stronger than I am and people coming at him that he doesn’t know makes him anxious. Better safe than sorry, I don’t want anything to happen.
Some dogs choose to fight. Others opt for flight, and unfortunately, all 75 lbs of Roy chooses to fight.   The inside guests in his space issue have gone away, he now loves guests. Off-leash and outdoors he’s totally fine.

We are heading to the beach this weekend for his birthday weekend at his favorite place! He literally goes crazy and into a frenzy at the sight of the sandy beaches.

Breeder Comment

We want to say you are awesome Weim parents. Thank you! Keep up the work, you are winning the battle. Happy birthday, Roy! Two Candles for you!
