~Coping with Excess Energy
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!Marie

What Do You See?
We all like to believe we can put our eye on a pup and know more than others imagine. Maybe it is true. Maybe it is a bit of a delusion. One thing for sure, there is more going on between the ears here than what meets our eye. If only we could read the brain waves.
Fifteen plus years ago we stopped doing litter picks. Some people still get miffed, but more often than not our Weimaraner folks like the idea of the Discovery and Placement Process. So, it is a long six-weeks to wait to find out which pup is yours. Despite the waiting, things typically end up as they were meant to be–or so it seems.
There are so many steps between this–
Just wanted to check in and say that our lil Addy (13wks) is doing wonderfully!
She keeps us on our toes (this morning got a hold of my daughter’s placemat, mid-bite of her French toast….. and took the entire breakfast to the floor…. ha!) and is doing very good work with our trainer (she loves her fruits and veggies) :)! We are adding more and more distractions to her training, to test her but it isn’t taking long, she’s a smarty-pants. At least until she decides to stop cooperating, ha!
She has just fit right into our family and is quite a social butterfly already. I think we have the 100 touches down because the school was nice enough to let me bring her in when I pick up the kids 🙂
Thank you again, we couldn’t have gotten a better fit! We adore her!!
(And don’t worry, the about the garden photo…. she loves to run through my garden but isn’t eating anything toxic 😉 except bark…. but that is getting much better!

We are thrilled to know that Addy is doing well and is much-loved. Thank you, for taking the time to update us. The photos are great too!

She Loves the Drive Thru
~ She has Grown but not outgrown Dutch Bros.
On the close up we were in the drive through for Dutch Bros, we’ve been taking her to the same location since we got her as part of her socialization and now she gets all excited and happy whenever she sees that we are pulling up into their drive through. She is one of the most popular pups there and everyone is always so glad to see her, it probably helps that she gets a nice dog treat from them every time.

~ Jan Willow Set the Standard at Perfect!
UKC Best-In-Show and High-In-Trial Champion Sunstar Willow of OwyheeStar, AKC Canine Good Citizen, AKC Novice Trick Dog, UKC Rally Obedience I, UKC Agility I, Therapy Dog International certified!
What can we say? Congratulations hardly seem to be enough. For all the natural ability as well as Willow’s excellent temperament none of this would have been possible without Jan. It takes dedication and a lot of hard work to garner a prize, ribbon, or title. When the list of titles continues to grow, it is beyond impressive–the stellar performance makes us so proud too!
PS–what a fantastic photo!

The Weimaraner frequently accompanies her or his human. Events might include a special venue, or possibly it is you and your Weimar hanging out together. Either way, whatever you are doing; your Weimaraner wants to be with you. If you are inside the house, then they want to be in there with you–preferably leaning on, sitting on, or touching you. I heard there is a plot for them to find a way to be injected under the skin.
