Where Has The Time Gone?

Our Lu – turned 10 a month ago. WOW, hard to believe. 


She still is ecstatic about snow, runs 2 hrs or so every afternoon, and we currently have 7″ of snow – more the better, to her. She LOVES hunting for the ball, burying her face in it. 
First pic was just taken, second pic was from 2019 when we had several feet of snow – and she could smell where it entered the snow and just stuck her nose in and kept digging till she found it.
Weim love!
hugs to all,
Sharyl, Steve and Lu from Sisters, OR

We love reading about the adventures of Lu. About a decade proper–and we hope more to come. Thank you, friends, for helping us with this blog post. I know everyone will enjoy it.

Maverick

~Perfect Fit For Us

Maverick is now 7 months old and is the perfect addition to our family. Although in the beginning Mav was an irritation to our 9 year old Silver Weimaraner, Mav is now Tebow’s best friend. Tebow always watches out for Maverick.  Our family loves to be out doors and so does Maverick. We have taken him fishing, riding at the dunes, deer hunting in Eastern Oregon and today bird hunting in the mountains. He is everything we ever wanted in a puppy. Thank you. We love him so much.

We are so happy to hear that Maverick has fit into your life–and that Tebow has accepted him, as well. I am sure your report will resonate with a lot of other readers.

Infamous

~Television Appearance

Fans of Tango may remember how much time we spend at the local dog park. Last week, one of our friends, Lucy the German Shepherd, showed up with “mom”, Beth, who told us that Tango had been on the local news. Fortunately, her husband got a photo of the TV screen, or else we would have missed it entirely. It turns out that at some point, I had commented on one of their meteorologist’s posts with a photo of Tango on our back porch from June, and they waited until last week to use it.

He’s even bigger and more handsome now! ~ Tom

Thanks for sharing this with us all–what a fun post. I am sure everyone will love it–and most certainly someone caught sight of Tango and wondered whose Weimaraner that was on the news. I see it shows he belongs to you, but —

Tango

~ Dog Park Chance Meeting

Tango arrived at our local dog park on Wednesday, and immediately spotted a long-haired Weimaraner. There are very few Weims in our area, so we took an immediate interest.

We soon learned not only that they were both Owyheestar pups, but that they were the same age as well. As her “parents” described getting her as an older puppy two months earlier, I realized that this was the famous Addie, who had been featured on the Owyheestar blog on a couple of occasions. Now that the smoke has cleared in the Valley, they were in town on a late camping trip, and had made a visit to our neighborhood haunt.


I tried my best to get a good photo, but Addie was very focused on her ball, and Tango was soon focused on one of his gal pals, Susan the Samoyed, who was featured in a prior Tango update. They were just visiting our turf, but we’ll be sure to keep an eye out for them once camping season rolls back around.

Hello Tom–thank you for getting this newsy update that included Addie. I know everyone is going to enjoy it as much as we did. We love that Tango is such a friendly boy.

Nicki and Annie–part two

~ Road Trip–when are we leaving?

This last winter we took both girls to Diamond Lake, we were concerned because Nicki gets car sick every time she goes in the car.  Bob and I placed bets of when Nicki would get sick on the way.  She made it a little over an hour before she vomited which is longer than either of us expected.  She did very well the rest of the way and all the way home.  We took them twice and Nicki does not get sick anymore.  She did not get motion sickness it was nerves. 

As soon as she would get in the car she would start shaking.  We are both very happy that she does not get sick anymore so we can take her everywhere with us.

Annie went Antelope and Deer hunting with Bob, she was so happy that she had dad to herself. Nicki is such a cuddle bug; she snuggles with me every night.  She is mom’s girl.  Annie is dad’s girl.  We love the girls so much and enjoy them.  Thank you for the best dogs ever!

Well, it is extraordinary that you each have one of your own. Many folks struggle–wanting to each have their own, and the Weims are not cooperating. So, you have that. And two females, each wanting to be in charge, can prove challenging. They have worked out co-existence, and probably each Weimaraner has their realm where they rule.

Sasha

~And Snuggles

Sasha has been an adorable ball of energy since the moment she got home. She loves all her new toys, and has been taken on daily romps around a large field. She is not shy, but definitely likes to assess the scene before diving into something new. She is so snuggly and I’m overjoyed to have her home with me.

Breeder Comment

We are thrilled to hear the two of you are doing well–we cannot wait to hear what Braden thinks. It will be a great welcome home treat. Thank you for the cute visual of your first little while together. We truly appreciate it!

Tango

~The Ladies’ Man — Part Two

Tango’s “girlfriend” moved into the house across the street at the end of March. She’s three quarters Border Collie, one quarter Miniature Australian Shepherd. Her “dad” and I enjoy cracking a cold one in the field down the street, so if the weather is cool enough, one of us will text the other: “Field?”

Lily has a definite speed advantage on Tango, and a tight turning radius on her little legs. Because they met when Tango was around her size, he perceives her as equal in size, rather than less than half of his. She’s a sweetheart, but she’s good at keeping him in check when he gets a little too eager.

You realize Tango is very social this is his friend Abby–she’s half chocolate lab, half silver lab.


What a big adventure we embarked upon together just six short months ago, never expecting that fate would offer us so much more bonding time during these early months. He’s quite the little playboy. And not a day goes by without some stranger informing us how gorgeous he is.

Breeder Comment

Well first spoke to you six months ago and helped you plot a plan to raise the Weimaraner. You have excelled –for this, we are exceedingly happy. The Weimaraner is not the breed for everyone. As you well know, there are challenges. There are other breeds less challenging to get raised, but Tango is doing well. (Hurrah!) Of course, a Weimaraner is a puppy for three years. What can I say, and then they act puppy-like even longer. Some act puppyish for their entire life. They are full of life and energy, but this scenario helps to keep us young and active. Then there is that thing where they burrow deep into our heart and soul. What else can I say?

Weim Privilege Denied

`Maizie Gets her Chair

Maizie, age 8, has lived her life without being allowed full access on human furniture and beds.  (She has no idea other Weims get full privilege).  (She has numerous comfy beds and fleeces of her own in every room of the house). About two months ago, she weighed the situation and took a gigantic risk.  She stepped right up on the comfy recliner chair in our bedroom and curled up into a ball!  We were so stunned we were speechless!  She didn’t get yelled at!  We didn’t have the heart to scold her.  We relaxed our expectations justifying, “Well, she’s 8.5 years old….she’s getting older etc etc etc)”.  It’s Maizie’s chair now for certain times of day—at her choosing.  We ask her when we want to sit in it.  The power of the Weim!

Breeder Comment

The Weimaraner doesn’t see herself as a dog–and her humans use furniture. Having a fancy dog bed isn’t the same–look this chair just fits. What more should I say? Well, nothing more to say other than we do so appreciate this photo and your little story that we could use for the blog.

Kenzie

Kenzie will be 13 and is still very active. He isn’t showing any physical signs of slowing down. We feel now is a good time to explore the idea of bringing in a new family, puppy into our household later this year.

We would like a hunter, we will not hunt animals but we do like to play hunting games, hide and seek. Our dog, Kenzie was selected as a hunter and we love that about him. We camp and fish.

We love our Kenzie and we would like a clone,😆 Lisa and Troy

Breeder Comment

We are happy that Kenzie is doing well at 13–and we hope you get more quality time together. As for cloning him–well, we both know it is not possible. We will do our best for you, though.

Nutz-nabbed

~Beautiful Thief, she is–


When ever I take a shower, I have to leave the door cracked, otherwise, she will scratch and whine, waking up the rest of the house (she gets quite loud, haha).  


And EVERY single time I get out of the shower, I have a piece of clothing “gone”….yep my beautiful Weim is a “thief”.  I  usually find it under her, or in her mouth.  She hasn’t damaged anything (yet),  but if I’m missing something, all I have to do is find her (which isn’t hard) and I’ll find my clothes.  Gotta love little thieves (lol).


Looking forward to our next thief!
Robin and Mark

Breeder Comment

Well, we have been friends for a long time–like so many people in our life, it was the Weimaraner that introduced us. This addiction to this crazy breed cannot be explained to everyone. It is most certainly not for everyone, either. (That being said)–we look forward to placing another with you as soon as possible. Thank you–for your loyalty, friendship, and the love of the Weimaraner.
