~Have You Heard of a Soft-Mouth?
(8/15/2019) I have to tell you guys about Tikka today! We’re camping on a lake and we paddled out to an island, well Tikka obviously “found something ” she was super excited and kind of lounged then it looked like she tossed something but kept after what ever it was. I noticed a mama bird that was upset so I called her off. As we were leaving she ran back that way and started swimming away from us and wouldn’t come when called. When she finally came back it was obvious that she had something in her mouth (dang it a dead baby bird!) . She was swimming differently, slow and careful. She swam directly to me and gave me a live baby bird that I returned to it’s nest
😊Here are some photos from our recent adventure.
Supposedly, the Weimaraner is not naturally soft-mouthed. Small game and game birds frequently don’t fair well–but having said that, Cliff had had many a retrieved bird fly out of an OwyheeStar Weimaraner’s mouth. A soft-mouthed dog is a good thing.
Thank you, for sharing your story–and all these great photos. We know everyone loves seeing Tikka and Luna.
~Lives in Central Oregon
Finns first time at the coast. He’s doing well.
He is definitely a handful but I think he’s doing pretty good. Him and Gunner love to tease each other with the ball. Jealous boys.
For those that don’t know, Gunner is a rescue this family acquired a few years ago. They had contacted us about a puppy then, but Gunner came up locally and in need of a placement. Many years later–they came back to get Finn from us. Now, they are a Two-Weim household. Isn’t that excellent?
~Allie’s New GSP Pup
Here is some pictures of introducing a new family member. Some of these are Skye and some are Haze and then there is my old man Aussie. They are all being introduced to Allie’s new puppy GSP.
They all get along. Haze is the one looking away trying to show Sparta GSP to watch for birds! Skye is sharing her toys nicely with the puppy by dropping them and teasing her to even dare to try to get it! Keller (Aussie) Sparta things he is a fluffy chew toy. ~ Jean
It is fabulous to see the OwyheeStar Weims being so polite with Allie’s new puppy. You have done great things with these girls–we thank you!
~12 Years Young
Emma is 12 years young I don’t have any secrets on how she has been able to stay active and young at heart other than her DNA, lots of love.
Alice (our second OwyheeStar) and Emma is a very special girls to our family. We are overjoyed that Emma is still so healthy. We thank you so much for our amazing best friends ♥️♥️♥️We love them so much We will continue to update Thank you again for your blogs too!
Thank you guys. This is especially good news–12 good years is excellent. We hope for more of the same.
~ 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!
