~ Just Because We can
Once again, I am running short on blog material. I have at least one option to get worked up–but, short on content. I didn’t think you would mind having this puppy fix in lieu of me writing something. I hope that is the truth.
These are the Hattee X Boone Week One Update Photos. They were taken last Friday on day six. Of the four pups–there is only one gray. There is also one with the undocked tail. They appear to be thriving–there is a considerable size difference. There are two larger pups and two smaller pups. We will see how that turns out once we arrive at the exit–one never knows if they will catch up, or if this is something woven in the DNA–meaning they got the genes for a smaller size. Isn’t it interesting, though?
One Too Many Flashes
~Are We Done Yet?
The wiggles, the squiggles, and let’s not forget the squint. Yes, the puppies find the camera too demanding. They try to escape. We squeak a toy, clap our hands, and try to get them to look at the camera. Sometimes we get the look–oh the process is so exhausting.
Deja Vu produced three tiny pups. Last time we mated her we ended up with one, so we are thrilled to get the three babies. These were taken the next morning after they arrived–day one. We just had to capture a few photos of the moment.
We all can attest to how quickly a pup grows. By four months, they are looking adult-like. They are powerful and fast as lightning. Yes, the young pup can look deceptively quiet, calm, and lazy. There are only two speeds–any Weimlover knows that is the truth. There is on–which is also known as full speed ahead. Then there is off–it might be a lazy stroll, a snuggle, or more than likely a flop. I’m done.
For now, they have one focus–nursing and staying warm. It is enough.
She loves playtime with the kids, fetching & retrieving every day. Introduced her to the sheds, though we’ll wait a little longer due to height and she can still be a bit clumsy at times.
She is very smart & likes to test us (repetition is key); we’ve used hand signals along with voice commands throughout her training (helpful for hunting later on, we prefer this method over whistle training). Overall she is very loved, happy, healthy and has made her place in our hearts. We look forward to every new adventure, and with our very active family, she has much to look forward, too!
Training is going great! 1st time playing in the sand this week, too!
We love the photo documentation. Thanks for that! We love seeing she is working at the Versatile lifestyle thing–all terrain Weimar.
The Photo Shoot
~ or the glamor photos as I like to call them
A lot happens behind the scenes. The pups in this photo shoot are three-weeks-old. They are not willing participants. We are not professional photographers. We have decent equipment–thank goodness. We take a lot of photos to get a few we consider good enough to post for the weekly update. Cliff and Christina run the camera. Sometimes there is puppy whispering involved or mollycoddling too. The pups see and hear so we make noise and try to get them to look at the camera–the result is often something entirely different.
Eventually, We Get Something Like This
Please Note: These are not current pups available for placement. They are pictures from a previous photo shoot.
Do not click here link, unless you want to see a beautiful blue girl.
Weimlovers are quite possibly the most doting parents of them all. There is no measuring stick, but even the less vocal owners, secretly adore their Weimaraner. Outsiders make comments about the Weimaraner culture, and allude to the craziness. We let those remarks slide, because they don’t get us.
Not everyone can afford to have a private photo shoot, but many of our clients have done just that. The most-recent poser is Layna. We shared a few of the photos with you; however, a click on the blog-link will reward to with today’s dose of cuteness. We sincerely hope you enjoy these photos as much as we do!
