Hank has been asking Santa for a little brother or sister, and this year he is going to get his wish!
In a few days, Hank’s little sister will be joining the family. Before she arrives, he is getting ready by watching Mom get the crate set up and messing up all the blankets. Hank will teach his sister everything, like how to hike, how to play, and how to get along with Dagny the cat!

It is an exciting time waiting for a new Longhair sister to arrive. We know you have been patiently waiting for us to have a litter. And, it came just in time to call it a Christmas baby. Even better–she doesn’t come home until after the holiday hubbub. Perfect!
~Christmas at the Spight Residence
A Bit Revised….
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go;
Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Charlie Mae all wrapped up
the prettiest sight to see is her face looking at me
And right in front of the family Christmas tree.
From Will and Jill some time back..
You can tell it’s Christmas time at the Spight house!!
🎄. We got Charlie Mae 5 years ago just before Christmas and she wouldn’t leave the lights alone when I was trying to fix them and I wrapped her up. Been a traditional activity ever since!

Will, I still remember when you asked if we had a Weimaraner available thinking smooth coat. We had Charlie Mae not promised, and when those two gals met her– we know the rest of the story. Many years later you have three Weims–two Longhairs. I suppose that speaks volumes about Charlie’s effect on your Weim addiction. Thanks for your loyalty to us as well as your friendship.
~Training (Yachats River Road)
Bart in his 2nd session of training. He is off leash in an open field up Yachats River Rd. It was a big deal for us to have him off leash and he did really well–it gives us confidence. We had another first when Bart jumped into the SUV by himself, finally.
Bart was very compliant because he did not like having Dan out of reach or sight. I am glad we shared the moment with you expressing how grateful were are about you making it possible to have Bart in our lives. These guys get under your skin–well, sometimes the deep sentiments surprise me. But again thank you for everything –we adore him.
Bart, he is a pisser! Full of piss and vinegar….brimming with energy and the next moment is never known. We have compared him to having a chimpanzee. Smart, manipulative, out spoken, clownish, bossy, snuggly and absolutely delightful!
Nothing makes us happier than hearing about the OwyheeStar Weimaraner–especially in endearing terms. Polly–quite possibly Bart was a bit easier to get going than a lot of Weims. We had worked with him more because we didn’t have a placement for him. But, along came you folks–it seemed like a good fit. We knew he would be challenging–after all, we are talking the Weimaraner. And, this was your first. (Haha)
Thank you for always thinking of us and for doing great things with Bart. You rock!
~ 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.
~Sharing a Bed
We have two Weims from you. Both from Stackhouse. One long hair and one sliver.
They love the snow.! One swims and the other one just likes to Wade in the water. You can see they are both lap dogs.
People ask us how we can let these adorable pups go after pouring our heart and soul into raising them–and here is the answer. We do it for others, and to give each pup the best possible life.
People like you make all the work worth doing–thank you for the update. We appreciate you!
~Unlike any other Dog
Bart is 8 months old today (Sept 7, 2019). He is unlike any dog we’ve ever had. He is loving, funny and a terror all in one pup. His happy greeting is a bite; I love you forever is voracious licking and I need/want something is endless bump bumping with his nose. Bart is selective about his friends The other night people came over and he wasn’t sure about them so he put himself on our bed. Last night friends came over and Bart was thrilled and played endlessly with a 6 year old English Cream retriever; by 8:30 he was exhausted.
Having Bart in our lives keeps us very engaged. My favorite time with Bart is bedtime. He is snuggly, loving and quiet…no biting, chewing or licking. That’s not really true because it is great fun to go for a walk with Bart.Thank you Cliff & Shela for such a wonderful pup! Dan & Polly
Thanks for adopting Bart–he got extremely lucky finding you.
~And I am Neglected
Mom says there is No shame. She was sick in bed for a few days which left, me, Emmy “neglected”. This pillow (from Target, so it’s no great loss) but it bore the wrath of my boredom. ~ Emmy
Cliff and Shela are speechless. We think it was excellent that you Mama recovered quickly enough to avoid more issues.
~sniffed, grabbed –met its end.
Our Rat Patrol with their trophy. Norwich Terrier, Eliot, heard the rat. Weimaraner, Porsche sniffed it out, grabbed it, shook once, and dropped it. Eliot picked it up and finished the job with proud terrier shakes. Maybe we should take up Barn Hunt competition.
Best Regards, the Locklears
Looks like the tag-team netted a nice one. Thanks for this share, JuneAnn.
~ For Bart
o Bart had his surgery today to fix his umbilical hernia and be altered. He does not like the cone, in fact he hates the cone. Overall he is doing tremendous. He is whining because he is not getting his way, but does not seem to be in pain. Still peeing and pooping post surgery. It’s going to be a long 10 days with a cranky Weimaraner.
We are happy to hear Bart came through the surgery–we have since read he is coping better than expected. Hurrah! When possible, we like the bite-note type of situation instead of these cones. This cone looks to better than most.
~ Friday Marks Five Months
This Friday Bart will be 5 months old. Tuesday will be 6 weeks with us. I haven’t needed a band aid for 3 days and today Dan was able to put on his shoes and socks without any chewing or helping. Bart also napped next to me, curled up at my hip, 2 days in a row for 3 or 4 hours.
Today our farmers market was very busy 100+ people and lots of dogs. There was barking, kids playing and lots of people asking about Bart and petting him…sensory overload and Bart was awesome! A couple of motor cycle groups went roaring down the nearby highway and the loud noise didn’t phase him. It was a very good outing. Thank you for all of his training. I think he likes us and is comfortable in his new home.
He loves walking the 804 trail and he has favorite people and dogs he is happy to see.
Here is where Bart chose to lie in the sun for a little snooze, on the tiles for the outside shower.. I wouldn’t let him go on the front deck unsupervised because he eats the dirt and dead plants in the pots.
We knew Bart never looked back once he got into the car with Dan. Everything was new and different, but as Weims go, he made a swift and decisive transition. You did great–as I had suggested not overwhelming him. Maybe it would not have been a big deal; however, we will never know. You took it one step at a time–there was never a hiccup.
