The Other Weimaraner
Zula Blue’s Five Longhairs — Week Five
Most folks have never seen a Longhair Weimaraner. Above are Zula Blue’s five Longhair pups–she birthed a total of eight pups. Three are traditional smooth coats. Below you will find the same five pups four weeks earlier.
Zula Blue’s Five Longhairs — Week One
To learn a bit more about the Longhairs, you can visit our Website–click here! They are becoming more popular (for good or bad). There is always pros and cons when a dog breed gets attention. Nonetheless, it was not long ago you could scarcely find one in America–now, they are out there. Even some shady types have picked them up it seems. In all honesty, they will never overtake the traditional gray ghosties. (Haha) Still, they are essential to the breed. They have always been in the lineage–from the earliest of times.
When projects happen, Stackhouse goes to work. He is not quite sure Cliff has it right, but he is doing as told–staying in the Gator. Since Dad is distracted it would be a great time to sneak off and check out any number of things–the bird pens, the cats, or to dig in search of a gopher.
Good Boy, Stackhouse!
On Charlie Mae
~The Annual Tradition
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!
Greetings from Cliff and Shela….
….August is in full swing, and everyone is busy, busy, busy.
We are blessed to be able to use our pond. It is not perpetually filled with water, but during irrigation, we can easily fill it. The hay has been cut, which also gives Cliff additional space in which to train. It is important to keep the training fun. Cliff finds the positive (and upbeat) approach almost without exception gets the best results. The Weimaraner is all about the relationship! The weather is warm, so Cliff does the vast amount of his training in the mornings, or evenings.
He has been working with three longhairs (Bernie, Bonnie Blue, and Cleo). Bonnie Blue loves the pond, but doesn’t quite swim. Bernie dives in and snatches the dummy. Cleo is doing well–she is much younger, but excelling for her age.
They have been working with the bird launchers (using homing pigeons), and it is fun to watch. Bonnie Blue is making progress, she came to Cliff with the idea that birds were off limits. I saw her point a pigeon, and also to chase one. Cliff and Bonnie Blue are making progress.
Teach your dog to avoid rattlesnakes!
Cliff will be helping at the Snake River Gun Dog Snake Aversion Clinic
The clinic begins this morning and runs until 1 PM. It is too late to get a reservation, but feel free to drop by and see if they can accommodate you. Check out this link for more information. www.snakeavoidance.org
