Pushkin

Novice Obedience

     ~This Happened!

20180814_181827Just a quick note to let you know that my sweet, loving, energetic and manipulative Pushkin graduated from the novice obedience training class tonight. He received a score of 94 out of 100 points. Half of the test was done off leash. We start the advanced class sometime in September. A great 9-month birthday present.

Congratulations to the both of you! Those scores look really good to us. Keep up the great work, who knows where this might lead. We appreciate the update.

Reunions

It’s Amazing

     ~Jorja Remembered

Jorja is loving up on her “interim” Mom, Emma.  Arleen and Emma took care of her until she could make the journey to Belgium.  She hasn’t seen Emma since she was 16 weeks old, but she remembered her.  Jorja was a trouper, she made the 8 hrs flight from Brussels to Chicago, hopping into her crate with ease. Through customs in Chicago, back into her crate after a drink and potty break for the 6 hr. flight to Portland, OR.  She was happy to see cousins Arliss (Arleen’s Blue), Auto and Izzy.  She seems to have a crush on Arliss.

At Home

Jorja is happy and loving her new home 🏡. Her new favorite word is beach.  She and I have started walking with a ladies walking group. She loves to run, greet people as well as other dogs. One lady calls her the new LB greeter. Not to forget the birds–she still loves them too.
I am thrilled with her approach to the water. She also hasn’t been in the water since at Arleen’s when a puppy, but she is in it now! It is going well. We are home near family, she has adjusted. We are doing well.

We were so happy to hear that Jorga was safely stateside; however, the picture you paint is beyond amazing. What an excellent traveler.
It sounds like she slipped into her new life. She loves the beach. She loves the people. She loves everything about her life. Isn’t that fabulous? Thank you, Eileen, for the share. If you live near Long Beach you might meet Jorga, she will be glad to make your acquaintance.

Winchester

Rocks the Dog Park

    ~Sleepy Boy Afterward

Winchester is 16 weeks old and he is so happy and playful. For today’s adventure, we took him on his first trip to the dog park. Winchester loved all the new smells and running free. He was very well behaved the whole time. He was so sleepy when he got home then it was time for cuddles. Brandon and I love having this sweet boy he is truly a blessing.

Thank you, we truly appreciate this little note concerning Winchester (AKA Chester). The fact that he brings you joy is evident. We love seeing all your posts celebrating the moments as well as the achievements. Keep up the great work.

Jorga

Stateside

   ~The Pacific NW

Jorga began her life at OwyheeStar–like so many of your Weims. She then, stayed with Arleen (who lives with Arliss) until she could join her family in Belgium. For the last several years she has reported in at various intervals.

Here is the sweet Jorga –welcome back! We are happy you made the trip without a hitch. Below she was preparing for the journey–watching as her home was packed into boxes. For all you who say never flying with a Weimaraner ever–what options are there? You cannot leave the family member behind.

Not a person goes by that doesn’t say she is the best looking dog they ever saw.

Macey and our son are best friends it could not have worked out better. Thanks for your hard work. ~ Don

Don, we appreciate your loyalty. After your first OwyheeStar Versatile Hunting Weimaraner passed, you could have gone anywhere. The long distance and the logistics of making this all come together make this all the more amazing. We look forward to hearing about her antics as well as her success in the field.

Wow! A year happens so quickly. To think of the tiny bundle –easy to hold in one hand at birth. It was not that long ago. Thank you, for all you have done with Berkley. People like you make all the time, effort, and expense worth it.

Happy Fourth

     ~ Willow Wins Again!

Magnuson's Willow_1464She took an altered Reserve Best-In-Show today!  At 6-1/2 years of age!  ❤️❤️❤️. Jan

At 7 they are considered a “veteran”, they can certainly still show and win, however, most really top-winning dogs are under five years of age.

She was still limping (from her shoulder injury) yesterday so I pulled her, she was good this morning so we went in the ring for both shows and she did great.
I love Willow so much!
Hugs, Jan

We are ever so thankful for Willow’s continued success. Thank you, Jan! we know you have the special photos coming soon. We look forward to it.

I was thinking “Don’t shake the bed.”

What a great photo–thanks Mikelle. I am glad you and your best friend share so much.

~With Colby

     and his Tiny Hyoomans

Colby and his Tiny Hyoomans3Its been awhile since I sent an update. So I thought I’d share a couple of tidbits with you.

Colby decided that there was juuuuust enough space to squeeze into my chair with me for some lovins. Then, the tiny humans decided that there was room for them, too. So we took a few photos. You can see his enthusiasm as the photo shoot progressed. He still refused to budge from his perch, though! He’s a very patient big brother. As soon as the tiny humans left, he got comfy again and stayed a while longer. He got up for a potty break, but as I am sitting here writing this, he has found his place back on my lap for another morning siesta. What a ham!

Here is a video of him eating an ice cream cone. This is something I have never done. But after a series of events that led us to the vet’s office, I decided to help him unload his stress by hiding his first dose of meds in an unexpected treat. He had no complaints. Feel free to share on your blog if you’d like!
Colby is a little lonely since our lab passed away and we have been looking into finding him a new companion. We are considering another weim and would like to look into possibly getting on the waiting list for another pup when I get home from my deployment in January.

Breeder Comment

We are happy that Colby has brought so much joy to the family. He has adapted to change which is excellent. We sincerely look forward to working with you again. Thank you, for the great share. We and ( and I am sure all our readers would agree) thank you for your service, too!

The Naughtiest

Guess who’s birthday it is!

IMG_4448
Roy boy the Weim! I can’t believe Roy is TWO! (On 5/20) He is such a light in our lives even though he is such a hand full. Would not trade him for anything, we love our snuggly boy!
54723272525__03208A1D-8675-43EE-A9A6-714C1E26F123Roy is doing great! We recently just got over a case of the swimmers tail, we can’t keep him out of the water! And having a full tail probably contributed to that. Was so weird to see him not be able to wag his tail because he is always wagging that thing!
Still having aggression issues on a leash but I feel like he is getting better… he does wear a muzzle in congested areas. He’s stronger than I am and people coming at him that he doesn’t know makes him anxious. Better safe than sorry, I don’t want anything to happen.
Some dogs choose to fight. Others opt for flight, and unfortunately, all 75 lbs of Roy chooses to fight.   The inside guests in his space issue have gone away, he now loves guests. Off-leash and outdoors he’s totally fine.

We are heading to the beach this weekend for his birthday weekend at his favorite place! He literally goes crazy and into a frenzy at the sight of the sandy beaches.

We want to say you are awesome Weim parents. Thank you! Keep up the work, you are winning the battle. Happy birthday, Roy! Two Candles for you!
