~ Worming his way into the family
Duke snuck into bed with his other sister Lacy this morning.
Not too long ago it was Duke and Chula. Anyhow, with us having two Weims, things have gone really well with him joining our family.
Some of you would remember Duke as VanGogh–because he lost some of his ear. He didn’t lose his sweetness, smarts, or personality. He came into the world with a damaged ear–really weird. But then, his Mama nibbled it clean–leaving it much too short. (OMG) He is still the sweetest thing. The photo was taken at three-weeks.
~Preparing for Competition
Whisky has been in training now for 6 months and is becoming a great bird dog. He loves it. The trainer feels he would do great in Hunt Test competition, so we will start training for that.
At the age of 6 months, Whisky started retriever and obedience training at Coyote Creek Oregon Gun Dog Training in Eugene. He started at the age of 6 months and has been doing very well. We visit him at least twice a week to work with him and train ourselves. The trainer is very impressed with his abilities and drive and is confident that Whisky will excel in the field and in competition.
We are glad you are doing well with Whiskey and that your trainer feels he has good hunt trial potential. We look forward to hearing about the experience.
~Emphasis on Hunting it Seems
Moxie and I wanted to check in and let you know we had a great day in the fields on the last day of Pheasant season here in California. It would’ve been better had we gotten a bird but we only saw a small hen and 1 rooster that day who proved to be faster than my mom’s quick draw and shot.
Smart, wild birds are my favorite! But that’s ok, we had a good day of awesome nose work and exercise. Next year we will get them!
Happy New Year to all the OwyheeStar Weims out there, especially the ones living life on the farm in Treasure Valley! ~ Chrissy
The bird got away is a common theme. (Haha) Regardless, Moxie would have retrieved it were it possible. What a great experience to be out hunting together. Thank you, Chrissy–for always remembering us with your newsy updates. They are fabulous!
About Moxie Blue
~ Chrissy Updates us
Greetings from California!Wanted to give you a quick update on Moxie Blue. She is a fantastic girl and I can’t tell you how much we adore her.
Upland GameCliff, I upland hunt and only started shortly before Moxie came home with us. We’ve learned so much together, it’s one of our favorite things to do together.
For Those WonderingAbout that long coat…she is the softest thing I’ve ever felt. If you don’t know the Weims, they cuddle hard! It’s just what they do. Her silver undercoat is very soft like down but she doesn’t shed like a lab. This breed is very people interactive. She wants to be with us, on us, tell us about it and is not shy showing it. I love her beautiful tail and her eyes. Those eyes!
