~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.
~Naughty Maizie, Or Not!
You wouldn’t believe that this little beauty, MAIZIE, age 6.5, has a penchant for paper!
You can file this in a chapter of “Weim Crimes!” Yesterday, we left the house for an hour. Maizie stayed home. Usually always on our return home, she happily greets us—smiling, chattering, nibbling, wiggling with glee. Yesterday she did not greet us. Uh oh. (She doesn’t greet us if she’s been naughty). I found her laying in her living room sofa bed—ears back and shivering! Uh oh. Major telltale guilt! We did a search of the house to find the “evidence” and came up with nothing! We assumed then that she was just “thinking” about doing something naughty—reason for her guilty behavior. That was, UNTIL…..
…..I went to make dinner! Before we left home, I had printed a new recipe, Martha Stewart’s “Bacon-Mushroom-Leek Galette.” It printed out on 3 pages. I had left it on the dining room table. It was nowhere to be found!
BUSTED! She didn’t leave a trace! I had to reprint it to make dinner! This is why we close our office door when we leave the house, can’t leave mail on the table, or leave a package in sight! This girl’s got a penchant for paper!
We cannot believe how smart this girl is, and as I replied–this is not her first paper raid you told us about. Old habits die hard. I guess the good news is it is paper—just so she doesn’t take to eating cash or important documents. (OMG)

No Trouble Here!
Two days ago Willow decided to dig under the fence into the horse pasture (which is also all fenced) because I had given my horse Boomer some treats and he had dropped the crumbs onto the ground…Willow HAD to get those crumbs, heaven knows she must think I don’t feed her dog food that is more expensive than my food, LOL! Anyway, I was here, and called her to find her looking at me perplexed from inside the horse pasture, not sure how to get back, I guess she figured it was a one-way hole. I told her she was naughty and let her back into the main yard and then praised her the moment she stepped foot in the yard so she knows she is a good girl when she is here.
That is a big mistake a lot of dog owners make, that I tell my dog obedience students about- when their dog is naughty, they tend to stay mad at them even afterwards when the dog is doing the right thing; that is wrong, they need to make sure to praise them the MOMENT the dog is doing what you want!
Willow is a character and I love her to bits 🙂 ~ Jan Magnuson
Breeder’s Comment: It is always a bad idea to believe the Weimaraner will never get into trouble. Sometimes trouble will find them, and other times the Weimaraner will get into a situation via ingenuity. The best-trained Weimar can find trouble. If you want a perfect dog, then we suggest you buy a stuffed one. (oops) Many thanks to Jan for all she does for and with Willow. This is a great example of what can happen.
We like to recommend Jan as a trainer. Her expertise and years of experience with the Weimaraner make her invaluable. There have been several OwyheeStar clients, which have attended her classes. If you live closed enough to take advantage, we urge you to do so. Click here to check out the opportunity!
