~Who Needs a Weighted Blanket?

Imagines such as this appear across the Internet–and they speak to our heart and soul. Some might say the Weimaraner is too large for a lap dog. Ask the Weimar, and they will assure you that there is always room–if the human is willing. Well, shoot even if the human is not willing the Weimaraner can make the room.

If you are considering this breed and want to relegate them to the yard or out of the family area–we suggest you look at a different fur family member choice. The Weimaraner might be the ultimate Velcro Companion.

Whatever you are doing, the Weimaraner wants to be included–well, some will skip sharing the shower, but not everyone. Most certainly, they are the ultimate confidant keeping your secrets–and at the same time putting a paw on your weaknesses. Yes, they know how to exploit any situation. Our relationship is complex, don’t you agree?

Our Astra

~Working to Become our best together

Wearing her new Christmas Collars

Astra is doing good and we love our snuggle bug she is still in training. She is fearful of strangers runners and bicyclists but she is doing better.

A wonderful day at Sauvie Island 

We taught her to swim and she loves it she wags her tail while she swims. And we still love hanging out at the beach. Thank you for our baby. ~ Tanya

Keep up the great work. It is so great that Astra swims–all Weimaraners can swim. Not everyone accomplishes the swim, however, but we would love it if they did. Weims can be wonky. I was going to write about this trait, but maybe I will just throw that out there and let everyone mull that thought over. (Haha)

Christmas Cards

~ This One Features Salty

I’ve been racking my brain–and wondering if I could figure out who Salty’s parents were. I am fairly certain the litter sire was Dusty, but I cannot be sure. Mr. Salty is getting some age on him–it was a very long time ago when his parents came to our home to pick him up. It is funny how some moments stand out. Possibly, the name they chose made me always remember this Weimaraner–there have been a lot since he left OwyheeStar. But, it may well be the annual Christmas Card.

A couple of days ago, we got our first Christmas card. It is a doozy. (Haha) But every Christmas, we receive a card from Salty’s parents, and he is always front and center. This year he is solo. I wanted to share the lovely card with you readers–and say that I hope Salty is doing well.

Pepper Ann

~ At One

Heres some updated pictures of Pepper Ann. She just turned a year old and still loves adventuring with mom and dad and now her little sister we just welcomed to the family a week ago. She’s been pretty gentle and seems to understand her baby is fragile.

Thanks again for such a great pup

It is so great to see Pepper is doing great. Happy Birthday and congratulations on your newest addition.

Bart

~ A pleasant Surprise

Dan took Bart to have his nails trimmed yesterday and we expected it to be traumatic for everyone because Bart can be hinky about his paws sometimes.  3 minutes later the technician emerged with Bart and Dan was shocked.  Bart offered up his paws and was praised for how good he was.  What a pleasant surprise!  He weighs 58 pounds and he continues to grow like a weed.  We had a beautiful sunny walk this morning.

We cannot believe you said Bart could be hinky–Haha. (Just kidding.) Well, it is excellent news that he rocked the nail trim–good for you keeping those nails in good shape. Timely nail trimming is always a smart approach–and can help avoid split nails as well as the need for a painful trim to shorten them.

Crossed Paws

~Its a Thing

Pretty Feet and Face

Does your Weimaraner cross their paws? I think most do and it is the most elegant looking pose. Don’t you agree?

Ahhhh

😘

I love to show her off!!! Besides beautiful, she is nice and she is fun! Add a touch of stubbornness and naughtiness and she’s a perfect Weimaraner through and through!

I took this photo of Maizie yesterday, so she is 7 years, 7 months old.

Brady

~And His Orange Dog

Brady is growing fast and I’m behind on getting pictures to you. 

Orange Dog lasted about two week before he lost his head and just came apart at the seams.

We are happy to receive this note regarding Brady–as I know our readers will enjoy seeing your fabulous photographs. Thanks, Larry–and Ila.

Son Goddess Lu

~Sunshine Before Comfort

So, as with most Weims I know, to Lu sun is more important than comfort…if she’s inside and there’s a spot of sun ANYWHERE, she will find it, scrunching herself up into the smallest bundle if it’s a small spot. tho’ she prefers laying out like a sun goddess! 


But it always amazes me that she – who loves her soft cuddly bed – can be at all comfortable on pavement. But she probably knows the days of sunshine are going to be limited for a bit with another series of storms coming….She is also a chameleon – she can look very dark blue sometimes, or light gray, depending on environment. 

What a character!!! Thought you might enjoy this for post, or just a smile!
hugs,
Sharyl and Steve

Well, Lu understands what every Weimaraner knows–they do what they want. It doesn’t have to make sense–humans don’t often understand. Thanks for this cute post!

Kenai

~Spunk and Snuggles

We just love Kenai more and more each day.  He’s a little adventurer,  and a great combination of spunk and snuggle. Casey has been working on his beginning hunting training – introducing him to birds and gunshots.  He’s been doing fantastic!

His vet cleared him to start exploring more,  and to go camping! So last week we headed up to Olympic National Park,  and then down the coast, stopping in Astoria for a night before heading home.  He wasn’t able to go everywhere in the national park,  of course,  but there were a few dog-friendly areas to explore,  and meet new people.  He loved it! Here’s a few shots taken on our trip.
