We love Waylon so much, that we are contemplating a sibling.
I’m really torn because I feel like it’s taking away love from him. But we also lucked out with him not being a chewer or counter surfer etc. But he’s four now so I’m feeling likes it’s now or never. I don’t think I could ever have another dog after him
For all of you who love having two, or don’t–drop your thoughts to Cristi. Thank You! And Cristi, we look forward to working with you again–I believe you meant another breed of dog. Of course, the Weimaraner doesn’t consider itself a dog. We all get that.
~Well, kind of . . .
Freya is slowly getting Ava to warm up to her as long as there isn’t food involved. Freya is completely submissive but big sister still has to let her know her place.
Freya’s full name is Freya Lady of Love but she certainly does not love bath time – note the frumpy face!
The only perk is that she knows she gets treats after she endures the wet torture her crazy humans inflict on her.
We are happy to see that things are coming together. Sometimes it takes a bit–and more than anything the humans have to breathe deep and try not to be concerned. It works its way out –and crazy humans are essential. It is all good. Thanks for apprising us!
Good morning! Just a little update on our beautiful Blue Sky!
Today was her 12 week booster shots and she did great. She weighed in at 18.3 lbs. On her 9 week visit she was 12.4. Shes growing leaps and bounds.
Nutz (Bernie x Boone) is taking a bit longer than we were hoping to adjust to her younger sister, but she is. But she is coming around. Our grand-dog took to her pretty quickly. She has the same obsession with “balls” as her big sister, but is easily distracted, as most puppies are.
She loves being outside, no matter what time of day, and follows Nutz around. When she get cold or tired she curls up on my lap for a little snuggle time. She is loved by all and everyone thinks she is beautiful … who can deny that?😁
Hope all is well with your family!
Mark, Robin, Nutz, Sky and Rhea (grand-pup)
Sounds like your Grand-pup was excited about having the new upstart, but as expected Nutz was slower to adjust. (Haha) They will be the best of buds–snuggle time works, too.
Big Brother Blue using Stone as a pillow. Love.
Stone is working out for Big Brother Blue–the perfect pillow. If you have a couple of Weims, what more could you hope?
~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.
~ Western Oregon Suits Her
Lexi made it home! Bella is giving her a tour of the backyard.
It was love at first site! Doug said she did great. He thought she slept most of the trip. He offered her water but she didn’t want any. She has already had some water since being home.
You might remember we had shared that we had two Longhairs available for placement–both were a little older (about 12 weeks). We had given them each a name (you have to have a name at some point)–Lexi was known as Tilly. Her sister went to Florence, Oregon–she was initially called Harriet but now is known as Fiona.
We were happy to learn that both did well in their new placement. Bella (Livee X Blue) is teaching Lexi the ropes–giving her the grand tour.
~ 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.
—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.
We try to have strict rules so all the furniture doesn’t get taken over by the dogs since both Jim and I are allergic to big loads of dog dander.
Our compromise is this: One ancient sofa near the front hall is all theirs. Sucia and Patos know that they can wrestle, scratch, jump on, chew toys and rough-house all they want on “their” old couch. The rule for the rest of the furniture is off-limits. The one exception is this gray couch, and by invitation only, in this picture is that it is off-limits, UNLESS it is covered with one of their fleece blankets. they can only be on it when it is covered with one of these fleece blankets, usually when one of us is on the couch and want a pup to snuggle next to us. Clearly, this was an afternoon that Sucia and Patos discovered that the fleece blankets were left on unattended…….😊
Every household has rules–spoken or unspoken. Sometimes we humans fail to keep our end of the bargain, and it is either confusing or allows bending the rules a bit. (Haha) Weims have a way of working things to their liking. We all know that. Don’t we adore them for their shrewdness — for the challenge they present? I think we can agree, we do.
Thank you, Megan, for this fabulous update. We truly appreciate it!
Oh, the places we have gone!
Charlie Mae and Murphy–Part One
~ Home For the Holidays
It’s been TOO long since my last update to you! We are having a wonderful Holiday Season at the Spight house. Charlie Mae and Murphy are doing great and have fully taken to their roles as our Fur Children! Charlie is now 6, and Murphy is 5.
They sleep with us EVERY night, Murphy prefers to be full-on under the covers (usually rotates to have his face sticking out at some point). Charlie likes to rotate between being partially under the covers and out of the covers (I think she gets too hot). The movement back and forth drives Jill a little crazy, but she still likes to snuggle with them throughout the night also, so they remain as permanent bed companions it seems.
Happy Holidays and lots of love to you all! The Spight Family
We are ever so happy to know your Weim-loving family. It is fabulous to know that both Charlie Mae and Murphy are doing well–at least doing Weimar type things. (Haha)
We loved seeing your annual Christmas Tree Lighting with Charlie Mae. I saw someone copied you–it was a Facebook post a few days ago. Don’t worry Charlie Mae–they cannot be considered the same as you–a Christmas Poster Girl.
