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

At Home

~ Learning the Ropes

20180614_175047Maelee has been learning a lot; how to go up/down 2-3 steps on the backyard deck, still retrieving, crate training (though she did not like) and potty training (only a couple of pee accidents). Her 1st vet app. is set for tomorrow and should go smoothly; very healthy & full of energy!! Here are a few pics from this evening!

We are so thankful for what you do:)

We appreciate families like you. I noticed we started the process in February–so the wait was shorter than it might have been. Nevertheless, it is always seemingly a long time.

People ask the typical waiting time. I think somewhere close to six-months; however, it depends. As I always say, we cannot predict when and if we will get a litter. If the litter arrives, we cannot predict the sex of the pups–sometimes the coat color.  Of course, we cannot guess what the people on the list above you will do either. (Haha)

Zoe

A Good Fit For Us

  ~Loves Her Routine/Gets Into Everything!

Zoe1

We haven’t checked in for awhile and thought I would share a quick update!
Zoe is doing fabulous!  She loves her daily routine of morning fetch, outdoor time, nap, and evening walk/runs. She enjoys playing with her human brother & sister Tyler and Sadi and finding anything and everything to get into! She’s a great girl and I’m thrilled to have her in the family!
Take care! ~Courtney

We are so happy to hear from you in regard to Zoe. She has busy well-rounded family life. Thank you, for this update and the great report.

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!

Jake is 10

     ~and Much Loved!

Jake_7594

Jake_7941This is Lindsay, and we purchased our wonderful dog Jake (Pepper x Blue litter)  from you in Fall of 2008. He’s almost 10 now, and we just love him to pieces. We’re considering adding another pup to the family and of course, wanted to come back to you. Our daughters are 6 and 8 this year and they absolutely adore Jake. He’s the best dog we’ve ever had!

I’ve attached a couple of Jake’s agility pictures from last summer too. He seemed to really enjoy it.

Breeder Comment

Thank you, Lindsay. We look forward to working with you again. We hope the experience is equally rewarding. We are thrilled Jake has been such a great family member. We especially love the agility photos, but all four photos are excellent.

Charlie Blue

Change Happens

     ~ Here is Our Update

 

IMG_8500I am way overdue for a Charlie Blue update! Our lives have changed quite a bit in the last year. We got an English Bulldog puppy and moved from Boise to Seattle.

Charlie despised Bosa when we first brought him home. Bosa is almost a year old now. Charlie tolerates him, but he’s still not her favorite.

She prefers to snuggle with our kiddos and our cat, Ish. Charlie has made new friends in Seattle and she loves the ocean. I will never forget the moment when she first encountered waves. But some things never change.

She still loves retrieving, swimming, racing in snow, finding birds (even when we aren’t hunting), going on fishing and camping trips, running free, stealing food, ripping up pillows, and hogging the bed.

 

I create a photo collage of Charlie for her birthday every year. I can’t believe she’s five! We love her more every day. She truly is the best family dog.IMG_8487IMG_1451

Charlie Blue has an interesting life. We do so appreciate everything you have done with and for her. Thank you, for remembering us. It means the world.

Pushkin

Roadtrip

     ~Coping with Excess Energy 

20180414_154025
Pushkin and I are preparing for a long road trip to Arizona to move my mother into an assisted living facility. Once that has been taken care of we are going on to the Chaco Canyons of New Mexico.  It is the oldest Anasazi site in the U.S. In preparation for the trip to Arizona, we took a trip from Salem to Kennewick to see my grandchildren.

What I learned on the drive was that we had to stop quite often, not because Push had to “potty” but because he needed exercise. Once he was out of the car and we walked for a bit he settled right down when we started up again. At every rest stop, someone would comment on what a beautiful dog he is. I have attached some pictures for you. The man is my son, the children are obviously my grandchildren. I am not sure who that white-haired old woman is, could it be me?😏

What a great dog he is!

Thanks for the great share–we are excited you’re traveling together. That is fun. We loved your pointer on burning off the excess energy. It is good for humans as well.
One suggestion we might have is to be careful about dusty areas you visit while in the Southwest. Valley Fever in dogs is a thing. We would not want anything to happen to the lovely Puskin. Click here to read a bit about this potential risk.

     ~ Now Fascinated with Balloons

 

As promised. Lily playing balloon volleyball. When we were decorating for parties, she wanted to bad to be included and just was fascinated w the balloons. We quickly learned she would try to not pop the balloons if she could play with us. She loves to be included in everything we do, and we do our best to include her. But now. I can’t get a balloon out of the party supplies without her going nuts. So when it is raining and muddy, this is an extra way to tire her out (and we all are laughing and happy)

Breeder Comment

Well, what to say about this girl. I think she is blessed to have a family who celebrates her. They find ways to include her in their activities. Balloon game is a new thought for us. Honestly, we have seen the opposite–fear it was an alien floating in the sky. This balloon game is delightful.

Celebrating Two Candles!

      ~The All-Around Versatile Weimaraner

Greetings from San Jose, California! Maverick celebrates his 2nd Birthday today and I wanted to give you an update. He is very energetic and non-stop, like the Energizer Bunny! A little 5-10 minute rest and he is ready for another round. Funny thing… about 8pm at night, he is ready for his snuggles with me on my bed. Once he has about 30 minutes of that, I tell him “it’s time to go to bed” and he jumps down and heads right to his crate.

30581778_10213518101845250_9204332305097687040_nHe has been crate trained since he was a puppy and sleeps in it every night and spends a few hours a day on it as well. Our 13-year-old Weim, Sawyer, has learned when it’s cold it is better to tolerate Maverick and let him cuddle for body heat.

He LOVES going nuts from inside as he sees squirrels and birds out in our yard and does his “cry” to let him out for the chase. Bill, my husband, takes him pheasant hunting and reports that he had the natural instinct the first time he went out in the field last year and this year did an even better job of pointing, flushing and retrieving the birds. He is a fantastic family and hunting companion. Maverick is exactly what we wanted in a Weim and you delivered!

Breeder Comment

We are thrilled Maverick is as advertised (so to speak). I think you folks know we take this process seriously. It is not our first placement with you. Of course, along the way to here and now, you have had a couple of Rescue Weims, too.

We realize that it is a significant risk to trust us to do what is best. Thank you, for your loyalty and this update on Maverick.
