~ And Water, Too!
Diesel is so into the ball! He loves the water retrieve. Oh, and by the way, Duchess did well in the water too!
As always, my boy Foster is in the mix. He and the Weims–they are pretty much my life.
Yes, Duchess who is about six-months old now also swam. She loves the water. She is a natural.
We wish you lovely summer weather–and lots of opportunities to enjoy the water as well as the sunshine this summer.
Dyson is well and growing fast. He goes to puppy class and is a superstar. He also goes to puppy socialization play dates weekly. He’s a little shy to get started but once he observes for awhile he’s happy. If he gets overwhelmed he finds someone’s legs to stand in between. He loves people! One of the supervisors said he is a polite puppy which made me proud.
At home he’s in love with playing with Leo and Leo has accepted him fully. Dyson is very interested in people first dogs second. And he likes to sit watch and observe new situations. Oh he’s going to be such a smart dog!!
We appreciate the update (including the photos)–and especially insight into living with this lovely boy. Thanks for remembering us–it means a lot.
~Inside or Out
Not so long ago we brought Finn home
So, Finn is doing really well. Here are a couple of recent videos
Thank you, for the photos and videos–as well as the newsy notes letting us know that things are going well.
~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!
~Our Charlie Mae Shines

~ 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.
~My First Longhair
Emmy is doing great! Emmy and Odin play, rough-house and nap together. Uli is still reserved – but we’re down to mostly growls. I still have to keep an eye on anything Uli determines is high value to her and put it away. She at least now let’s Emmy chase her in the yard – otherwise It’s like she has no concept of play. No more blood has been drawn and just waiting for Emmy’s eyebrows to grow back on the side they shaved – otherwise her torn eyelid healed up fully without issue.
Emmy has a vet check-up this week and I’ll talk about titer at 16 weeks. So far I’ve held off on any non-essential vaccinations. My vet’s titer charge is around $240. I called around Vancouver vets and the cheapest is $130 – from those that even offer it.
Emmy met my parents’ poodle a few weeks ago (at my parents house) and Bentley overwhelmed her – plus unfamiliar environment- so she wasn’t interested in playing with him. They will bring him over to my house today for a bit.
She still hates the crate (has never spent a night in it). Working on getting her to go to the door when it’s potty time. She at least is good about going in the same spot first thing every time I take her outside. The trainer in Camas has classes and puppy drop-off (just puppies and trainers so they play and work in basic manners and skills). We need to enroll.
Hope all is well with you! Time to get outside, let’s the dogs play and plant some more flowers, vines and shrubs in my yard. It’s a beautiful time of year.
Speaking of the Titer Test — if you just call your Vet office and ask about having one done, in all likelihood, you are going to have a similar experience to Jill. There is; however, a new Titer Test that is doable in your Vet’s office. We are ever so thankful that Dr. Calhoun agreed to order the test. We know that they (Idaho Veterinary Hospital) have done several in-house titer tests.

Jill, we so appreciate you–your loyalty as well as your commitment. Too bad about the early encounter when Udi lashed out at Emmy–being protective of the bone. Yes, there is always the risk of something going sideways when you incorporate a new fur family member. We are glad that things are working out. Thanks for your hard work to get past this issue.
As you told me almost a year ago, Zula loves to ride in the car. Now that the weather has been glorious in the Willamette Valley, I have taken the MG out to drive. I was taking the old dead battery out to install a new one when ZooBoo (as I nicknamed her) decided to help me. When I opened one of the car doors, in she went. She has turned out to be a wonderful addition to my family of canines. Thank you so much for two wonderful dogs.
What more can we say? Thank you for giving Zula Blue (Zoo Boo) a marvelous Golden Years Placement.
