Bayou

~ At the Office

I know it has been a long time but I’ve been meaning to email you for a while!
Bayou is doing fantastically! I now work in an office at a design firm and she comes in with me all the time and absolutely loves it (and so does everyone else). She loves doing just about anything as long as she is around her people. When she has to be alone, spends her days napping and sunbathing. 

She’s honestly the best and I can’t imagine my life without her. Thanks so much for making it possible to have this wonderful dog in my life.

What fun to hear from you! We are delighted to see and hear the news that Bayou is well-socialized and a fantastic family member. Of course, this is exactly what everyone dreams will happen. The Weimaraner can be challenging–isn’t it worth it?!?
Thank you, for thinking of us as well as being a great Weim-loving family.

At The Vet

Life With Mr. Tilman

     ~ He is a delight

IMG_20180619_192105_654.jpgI just wanted to give you an update as we had our vet appointment last night and Mr. Tilman weighed in at 25 lbs! He sure is growing like a weed!
He is the sweetest, most happy boy and we are so loving him! He has recently discovered birds and squirrels and anything that moves is VERY intriguing. We just started puppy obedience and of course, he is showing off that he already knows sit, down, shake and come. What an absolute joy he is!
Take care, Emily

Mr. Tilman, you are lovely. I am totally biased–openly admit it. We are hoping you continue to do well. You have a big job. Your Mama has big plans for you. (Haha)

I love that you have such a fabulous life–keep up the excellent obedience. Your job is to make others smile if nothing else.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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. 

Look Into My Eyes

What Do You See?

3-Dixie X Blue Week D & P 2016_-8

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–

And this!

 

 

Young Addy

Hello Owyheestar!

Dietz's Addy_6944

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 🙂
Dietz's Addy_0249
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!

She Loves the Drive Thru

      ~ She has Grown but not outgrown Dutch Bros.

20170714_115835
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.

Thank you, for letting us know that River is doing well. It is great to hear she is so popular too!

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!

Featured Weimaraner — Raein

Got Velcro?

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.

Parade of Paws

Around Spokane, Washington, you might run into Shelli and Raein. They are out and about doing things whenever possible. Shelli and Raein put in some long distances.IMG_20130616_00224710

Raein is a very social girl. Recently, Raein, Shelli, Shelli’s sister and her St. Bernard took part in Spokane’s Parade of Paws. Aren’t these photos great?
