~ Smart and Playful
Charlie and I just wanted to give you an update on our Kimber girl!
She’s doing amazing. She is so smart and playful. We are really starting to see her personality come through! She also loves the snow. Thanks again for such a great pup.
Hope all is well!-Alix & Charlie
We are happy to hear that Kimber is doing well. It looks like you got the snow, too. (Haha) Thanks for the great pictures and the positive news.
Just an update on our girl! She’s growing like a weed and learning new commands every week. We decided to bell train her for potty time and shes mastered that pretty quick! Currently working on “leave it” and “stay.” She’s making lots of people friends and her and her older brother (6yr Yorkie) play a rowdy game of Tug of War almost daily. If she’s not playing you can usually find her lounging on the couch or sleeping on someone’s chest.
Happy updates, Angel and Jake
Dear Angel and Jake–we love hearing how Pepper is adjusting. Also, it is fabulous that she is making a lot of friends, Thank you –for remembering us.
It has been a little while since I have sent an update on Pushkin. How can I resist this face of anticipation? Push loves to play fetch. As soon as we get up in the morning he has his ball in his mouth, even as he heads out the door to take care of his morning necessities. I can hardly remember what it is like to have a morning cup of coffee without having a ball dropped in my lap and Push waiting, rather impatiently, for me to toss it to him. He loves to catch it in mid-air.
Advanced Obedience Again
I have decided that we are going to take the advanced obedience class a second time, more for my benefit than for Push. When we took it previously I was in an orthopedic boot due to a broken foot. The foot has healed so maybe I can keep up with him this time.
The Ease of it is not lost on me
I also want to let you know that when the local feed store closed down the in December, I decided to try Chewy to get the Diamond Naturals dog food. The food was actually a few dollars less from them. It was delivered as promised and in good condition. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Push is a high energy, stubborn, independent, and totally lovable boy. Thank you for such a great dog. ~Marie
Hello Marie! Thank you, for the regular updates on you and your OwyheeStar Weims. We love the effort you have put into Pushkin’s training–even when you were challenged to keep up. You are a great Weimlover!
Readers–if you want to revisit the last Pushkin update–click here! If you don’t remember the backdrop to the earning of the certificate, you will want to take the time to read Marie’s story. I think it will put a smile on your face.
~Or, Where’s our Lu?
So – Lu doesn’t sleep on the bed with us at night but has her own crate and bed.
But during the day for naps, I bought a heavy muslin-weight couch cover that I put over the bed, and she has her own blanket. At 8 years old, she does like her creature-comforts (in fact in very cold weather she loves to nap on top of the heat vent!). Spoiled? Of course.
This morning is freezing fog in Central Oregon, and after her morning outing and breakfast, guess where she heads!
I’m titling this one: “There’s a Weim in there somewhere”!
Hope you and Cliff have a great 2019 – and thanks for all the wonderful posts.

It is so good that you keep us apprised an Lu and her antics. This is a good one–where all of us might like to be on such a morning as you describe. (Haha)

~ At Home
Peach and Kimber are finally best buds! We can’t keep them away from each other. They love to play and rough house all day long! Kimber LOVES being outdoors! She also loves to snuggle.
Thank you both again! Kimber is already part of our family and we are so happy with her.
We love you choice of Names–Kimber. (Haha) Isn’t it fabulous that Peach and Kimber are playing together already? We love hearing that we didn’t disappoint. Thanks for updating us.
Winchester’s first Christmas.
Chester has been such a good sport during this holiday season. He seemed a bit confused about the tree in the house at first he gave me that “I’m not allowed to bring my stick in the house but you get to bring in the whole tree?” Lol. But he has been a very good boy for the most part. He even posed in front of the tree with his Christmas sweater and hat! He will be so excited to get his presents on Christmas day! I can’t wait for his first Christmas.
How you delight in everything Chester makes our heart happy. We are glad for your beautiful friendship. You make it all magical–thank you. Merry Christmas –enjoy every moment. We know you will.
~White Elephant Gifts and All
On Saturday 12/8 Chester and I went to our local Weimaraner playdate for a Christmas party.
We did a White elephant gift exchange for the doggos. Chester just loved his plushy moose he got, he will not put it down. He cant wait until the next playdate when he gets to see his friends again.
How exciting that you can take advantage of Bill and Nancy’s hospitality. For those that don’t know, there is a group in Salem (and the surrounding area) that gather once a month for a playdate. Bill and Nancy have two OwyheeStar Weims–Luna and Tikka. We thank them for all they do for the Weimaraner.
~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)
~ With Chester
Recently Brandon, Chester and I went down to have some family pictures taken so we can make Christmas cards. We had so much fun and Chester was so well behaved. After anxiously waiting we got our pictures back and they turned out so great I thought I should share a couple.
Seasons greetings from Brandon, Whitney and Chester.
Dear Whitney and Brandon–thank you for your inclusion and the celebration of Chester. No matter what happens–children, life changes, etc. I hope he will always be included. He believes the universe surrounds him. (Haha) Thanks for everything–and for always for thinking of us too!
One Year Celebrated
For his 1 year birthday, Pushkin graduated from the advanced obedience course. I was not sure it was going to happen. He was fussing while other people and their dogs were going through their paces so I decided to take him outside for a couple of minutes. Unfortunately, just before we got to the door his training collar came loose. That would not have been too bad if someone had not dropped a pork roll on the floor. He spied that, ran over and got it and took off like a bat out of Hades. He was all over the facility and would not respond to a recall as he knew he was in trouble.I finally got him to sit and did a return and grabbed him by the scruff. Jennifer (the trainer) came over and held him while I got his collar back on. We waited until all of the other dogs finished and then went through the commands. He behaved quite well.
I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving.PS: These two flowers apparently do not realize that it is November
