~Can Mean a lot of things
You might remember that we picked up Duchess not all that long ago–and our Diesel was not all that thrilled with her arrival at first. He wasn’t bad, but his attitude said, “and I don’t think we need this.” So, we were off and running back to the Two-Weim family again, hoping that Diesel would fall in love with Duchess, too.
Fast Forward six-weeks
School is officially out. This is what I see as I leave for work–Foster and the two Weims snuggled in. This boy is not short on Weim snuggles!
We are getting out into the community, too! Since we got back the good results from the recent titer test (showing we were protected from the Parvovirus), we have gotten out and about. For one, we made it to the dog park, and I now have two really tired Weims.
Yes, Duchess will rule the roost, it is what it is. Scout and Diesel aren’t impressed where HER game of keep away with the ball 😂Well, here is the look that speaks volumes from our boy, Diesel.
I figured Duchess had already been swimming at your place. She took to the water naturally. Later, I learned that you didn’t have water in the pond, and this was her first water experience. Wow–and she swam, too!
We love hearing about Diesel and Duchess. It was especially sweet to learn that she is a natural in the water. Have a fun summer–Foster, has a job.
~With Tikka and Luna
I had the girls in Lowes today and talked to a man who was taken by my beautiful girls, I gave him your card 😊
BTW-I can take both girls into the store by myself and they are so good!! I’m always so proud 😊
They got new babies today. Love my girls, Nancy
Well, hello to you two girls–glad your Mom dropped me a quick update. I am glad the man at Lowe’s loved you (Tikka and Luna) Who doesn’t? Thank you, Nancy, for the endorsement–and for being you!
~ Part Two
What a fun first week we’ve all had introducing Bluebell to all the wonders of a yard complete with a ball. Once we got bells on her collar (even though a bit BIG) and could hear her moves, it all went much easier, especially since I forgot the draw of them getting behind the sofa!
Bluebell spent time retrieving and did quite well at it while old girl Bell kept watch as she remembers that ball well but at close to 14 years old seems happy to watch. I get it! Our weather’s been rainy and it doesn’t faze Bluebell one bit, she’s becoming aware of more in her new environment each day and has had her nose to the ground seeking good things…all good Weime traits my husband who grew up with them looks for, his parents took all rescues locally for years, they had Weimaraner’s 3 and 4 at a time. Can’t imagine that many!
My worries about two dogs at once are gone, it’s all going well, Bluebell seems to of been handled more than I’d imagined or she’s simply very smart, which does happen, Bell is very smart, caring and now we know patient, she’s not got cranky about having a small leaping biting new kid wanting her attention.
The information packet you filled with great information was truly filled with solid reminders on things I’d forgotten, I touch her toes, stretch her legs, ears, working on command for ‘open’ for her mouth, touch her while she’s chewing her Pig’s Ear, thank you ever so much for including a Pig’s Ear, it was all very helpful. I did her AKC Paperwork and the Microchip activation as you suggested separately with each company, so that should be coming with her new ID tags. Making it easy for me I’ll never forget because I needed it all to be easy, thank’s to your and Cliff’s hard work it happened, thank you both. It shows that you both have been at this a few years. We wore her out this weekend happily frolicking to and fro, all good, thank’s again, Debbie
You might remember Bluebell from Monday’s Blog–click here! We are very fortunate to have another note from Bluebell’s Mama. I don’t know what else to say except, thank you–Debbie.
~Not So Bad After all
Had to send you this pic of our buddies…Caleb finally decided Clover might not be so bad after all 😉
No particular story, just a fun evening of running and sniffing!
I had the same thought about Clover keeping him young! ❤
You might remember that Caleb lost his sister (Cabela) not so long ago. The family opted to add another Weimaraner. They knew Cabela would never be replaced, but her absence left a large hole that needed filling. Clover joined the family, and Caleb did not immediately see the need. Now, we see her trailing along and he playing the dutiful big brother.
Thank you Shela. I just can’t believe Stone has come into my life. He is so smart. Ringing the bells to go outside already! My friend came over to drill a piece of wood into the bottom of the backyard fence so Stone can’t escape and the sound freaked Stone out. He ran straight to Blue for protection. And Blue has been barking ferociously at EVERY passerby when we are outside in the backyard. I think he is protecting Stone.
This little guy is the greatest gift. I mean look at those little eyes!
On this Daylight Savings Day, can I merely say how very appreciative I am to hear from you Victoria. It warms my heart.

Thanks for the insight into Stone’s life as well as the great story of Blue’s ownership. Not every situation is going to come together so quickly. We are happy for you, Stone, and Blue. Thanks!
~ Makes Two
Mylo is growing as time is flying by. It’s hard to believe he’s been with us for 2 months already. He’s such a smart, loveable boy! As you can see, he loves his big brother Koda and also his humans! I hope you are both doing well and wanted to thank you again for sharing these adorable boys with our family.
It is excellent to hear that Mylo is much-loved and doing well. Thanks for these adorable photos of your two OwyheeStars.
~That Makes Us A Two Weim Family
Stone and Blue are getting to know each other. Blue refuses to share his treats or toys and makes this very clear to Stone.
But, at the end of the day, they find comfort in snuggling together. We’ve had great progress with potty training in three days, answering to commands like Come and Stay but not so much with the crate. Stone cries and cries at night until he is too tired and then starts up again after a wee rest. Needless to say, he is adored.
You are doing fabulous Victoria–keep it up! We look forward to hearing how things unfold over time.
—Push loves the snow, Zula not so much.
ZooBoo is doing great. However, she does not like the snow or perhaps it is the cold. She goes about two feet off of the covered patio to do her business and then comes right back in.
~What A Difference a Year Makes
Push on the other hand loves the snow. We have been outside playing fetch in it four times already this morning. Push and I are on temporary hiatus from formal obedience training. We will pick the formal training up again hopefully in the spring.
We are happy to know that both Zula (ZooBoo) and Pushkin (Push) are doing well. At least one loves the snow–well, and Zula gets off the deck even though there is the white stuff everywhere.
