~ Winter activities
We’re finally enjoying our “winter” – cooler temps and no humidity. We have cold nights around 40’ and warm sunny days. I moved a bed out to the back porch and Winchester is delighted. I leave the door open because we don’t have flies now. The other two are usually hunting the pesky squirrel and Winchester joins in as soon as he sees fit.
Love y’all! M
Well, the warming trend at OwyheeStar pales by comparison–we will take it, though. Daytime temperatures in the high 40s sound delightful to us–whereas our freezing temperatures would not suit your local crowd. We love that squirrel troubles the kids–it is very entertaining.
~Opus a saurus — one who mouths everything
Like most Weims, he is mouthy–I’ve really struggled with this habit of his. He is the reason I engaged the services of a trainer.
Not Gonna Happen
This picture is from one of the visits and from the dog trainer. He just laid there. He’s the reason I needed the trainer–remember. He’s not wanting to work on stuff. I’ve really struggled with this habit with him.
It’s quite alarming when he grabs you by the arm if you’re not comfortable with 85 lbs of lovin’. Then he nibbles your butt. Always predictable. Never harmful. We’re making strides.

Ok that’s it for now. I just love them all. Thank you. Can’t imagine belong without these guys.
Can I just say you are the best–thank you, Melinda, for your response to my request. BTW–I appreciate everyone who has already send something for our blog–and those who still plan to do so.
It is Lizards
Did you know the Weimaraner is a Watch Dog? Of course, you did. All that nose art on your window didn’t come from the goldfish. (Haha)
In the Northwest, it is the squirrels who taunt the Weim window watchers. Or maybe it is a feral cat that walks the fence gingerly out of reach. Bunnies and other scurriers are also fair game–sometimes the watching crew gets after the watched. The chase is on if caught it might not end well.
In the southwest, the lizards taunt the Weimaraner. It doesn’t take much to get their attention–sparrows, blackbirds, robins, butterflies, and sometimes bugs. Some Weims are more attuned to their duty of watching the premises than others. Nothing gets by these two.
Hello Cliff and Shela!
We send greetings from Texas where Milo just celebrated his birthday.
We just wanted to share Milo’s birthday party at his daycare with you. He is doing great! Hope all is well;)
Breeder’s Note: Christine is doctor, and her husband works long hours too. Milo spends his days at the wonderful daycare where he enjoys going. He has important work to do when Mom and Dad arrive home. Day care is not something that works well for every Weimaraner. The right setting can make all the difference. Some professionals need a caregiver while they are engaged at their job. This is especially true when the job requires longer hours.
Christine practices medicine in the great state of Texas, where she lives with Milo (and her lovely husband). When Joe is deployed, her and Milo have each other. While Christine works, Milo spends his days at a local daycare center where he has many friends, and is much-loved. Every Weimaraner has a job of one sort or other. Milo’s grandma happens to be Wolfie‘s Mama. This Weim addiction runs deep, and is very infectious.
