~ Western Oregon Suits Her
Lexi made it home! Bella is giving her a tour of the backyard.
It was love at first site! Doug said she did great. He thought she slept most of the trip. He offered her water but she didn’t want any. She has already had some water since being home.
You might remember we had shared that we had two Longhairs available for placement–both were a little older (about 12 weeks). We had given them each a name (you have to have a name at some point)–Lexi was known as Tilly. Her sister went to Florence, Oregon–she was initially called Harriet but now is known as Fiona.
We were happy to learn that both did well in their new placement. Bella (Livee X Blue) is teaching Lexi the ropes–giving her the grand tour.
~ AKA Counter surfing
Although I do not recommend tempting a dog, most of the Weimaraners I have owned have been shoppers also known as counter surfers. Porsche was no exception until we got “The Sonic Egg”.
The egg is motion activated and blows a puff of air, which in Porsche’s case went into her face and startled her. If someone is looking for it, it was made to deter cats. A savvy clerk at PetSmart thought it might do the trick for us, and it did.

It is interesting that it deters Porsche. I am not sure it would work for every Weimaraner, but apparently, it does at JuneAnn’s home. I do read that folks are having a lot of problems with the unit. I hope they keep making them. I can see that they could be handy in several situations. Thank you, JuneAnn, for sharing this novel idea.
~In The Snow
In case you think a service dog’s life is all work and no play, here a couple of pictures of Porsche in the snow.
Our Willamette Valley snow is so wet Porsche looked like she was gathering ammo for a snowball fight. Her feet gave a whole new meaning to “snow” shoes.
Best regards, JuneAnn
We are so happy to hear that the amazing Porsche (your Service Dog) continues to do well–even in the snow. Thanks ever so much, JuneAnn!
Porsche’s Diary Sunday
~March 19, 2017
The Sun shone today, a rare and welcome occurrence in the Willamette Valley. I started the day with a hardy breakfast, then Mom and I were off to a play date with my Vizsla friend. When we came, home Mom found lots of things to do outside while I romped in the kennel. I helped with the backyard lawn mowing by putting my fetch toy down in the tall grass in front of the mower. Mom stopped and threw it for me every time. After dinner, I sprawled on the couch; put my paw on Papa’s arm, and said enough fun for one day. (~from JuneAnn)
Goldee’s Mama is a devoted Weimlover. Here is what she says about Goldee (who stepped into some pretty giant paw-prints left on Holly’s heart by Miss Emma)
I mean, come on. She is becoming more and more of the Weim that Emma paved the way for. This little girl, I can’t even, she’s just the best, most loving, curious, snuggley girl I could have ever asked for!
Breeder’s Note: We are thrilled that Goldee has been a joy, and brought so much happiness to her family. She is winning friends, and recruiting others to her persuasion–the Longhair Weimaraner is special.
