Franny

Franny is living her best life.  With work I have gotten creative with my hours and enlisted the help of a few friends with dogs, so that she can keep meeting friends, even if the humans have to remain separate.  Starting Thursday, a couple hours after I leave for work, one of my friends will be picking her up from her kennel at my house and taking her to her hobby farm.  Completely fenced, she will get to run, play with the other dog and meet some farm animals.  She lives better than me!  

We walk every day and other than flopping down when she loves a special spot of grass, she is doing great.  

This dog could not be sweeter.  She is confident but not aggressive, she already know several commands, and I don’t know if it is the NuVet, the food choice or both, but her waste is still firm.  I have never had any dog with as consistent belly as hers.  She is a bit bitey – but I am pretty sure she is teething her big girl teeth, so we are finding every possible thing for her to chew on that isn’t my arm, leg or the sneak attach to my butt!  
I hope you and Cliff are well.  I love reading your daily updates and I this pooch like crazy.

We could not be happier to hear the news that you are getting along so well. Most Weimaraners lead extraordinary lives–often better than their human counterparts. Puppy biting is the bane of getting them raised. Click here to read Anne Taguchi’s article on managing the biting Weimar puppy. Mouthing is also about ownership, and one way the Weimaraner controls their human–think on that a bit. It is charming, but you might want to rethink allowing that behavior if it becomes a thing as she grows out of the puppy biting–shark baby stage. 

The food and supplements we suggest have worked well across the board for so many Weimaraners. It is the truth that no one food is perfect for every dog, but our pups have loved the food, and they consider the supplement yummy. I love the powdered supplement–just my preference. Together, this mix seems to help the immune system and keep the stools better. Weims can have such a finicky tummy–so glad to hear Franny is doing excellent.

Tazmanian Devil

Schweitzer's Maverick_5212

Beloved Companion

One Year Old

Hard to believe that Maverick turned 1-year old last week.  He is a little tazmanian devil, always on the go, full of energy!  Right when you think he is tuckered out, he is up and ready to go again!  🙂

Schweitzer's Maverick (1 Yr)

Natural Ability

Maverick has been on at least 4 pheasant trips this past season.  Each time he did better and better.  Bill has high hopes for him in the coming years.  He has such a hunt drive that he likes to stalk insects, butterflies, squirrels, etc.  If it moves, game on!

Fun to Watch

He is so much fun to watch prance around the yard with his toys, tossing them up in the air and then bolting around at lightning speed.  He cracks us up!  He also still loves to knead his favorite pillow and cuddle up with me when he does.

Sawyer and Maverick

Our old timer Weimaraner, Sawyer, now 12, tolerates him.  Luckily our next door neighbor recently adopted a puppy and he and Maverick get along so well together. They can both  go multiple rounds and wear one another out.

The Basics and Still Learning

He has been crate trained from the get go and knows several commands, both verbal and hand.  It is lots of fun watching him learn new things.

Discovery and Placement Findings

It ‘s nice to know our Discovery and Placement Test results proved accurate. Some Weimaraner pups within a given litter (despite the breeding lineage) will always show more potential than others. Our findings are invaluable whether you are a hunter or not.
We appreciate the update and the great photos that accompany it. Your loyalty is also greatly appreciated. Before Sawyer (your rescue Weimaraner) you had an OwyheeStar. We cannot say what it means that you came back again. Many of our clients are repeats, and others are referrals. Your return means the world to us.

The extreme athlete

The topic of acquiring Major Medical Insurance for the extreme athletic Weimaraner is not new or novel. Just like their human counterpart an injury can occur. It is very costly and a lengthy process to treat a torn ligament. We always hope nothing like that will happen, but we are talking about a high-speed risky behavior type of situation. Eventually, something will happen, and then you will wish you had the insurance. Consider it!
No one can guess what will occur along the path to the end. Eventually, something takes our beloved away from us, and we don’t want it to happen any earlier than it must. When something comes along, we don’t want the pocketbook to be the deciding factor.

NuVet–worth it!
