Just wanted to share some pics from Milly’s first hunts as requested. Her first hunt was at a release sight, and she did fantastic. Pointed a few, didn’t range too far and listened well. She had her first wild bird hunt this weekend and did amazing. Pointed several birds, worked methodically, and most importantly had a blast.
Chris and two others hunted behind her and both couldn’t believe how well she performed, especially for being so young. Chris and his hunting companions are looking forward to many more hunts behind this extremely birdy girl! 😊
We are happy to get this update with the photos. Thank you, ever so much for taking the time and effort to record her first hunt. You are off to a fabulous start. We could not be happier. Go, Milly!
Dad and I went out to the Petersen place and tromped around the cockleburrs as some other stickers. I picked up more than a few. If I had not found a bird, the trip would have been a bust. Seriously, it was a little hunt adventure, but there are not all that many pheasants showing up. Oh, let’s not forget about this little quail I retrieved too. It doesn’t show too well, but if look closely and you can see it tucked next to my pheasant. Two birds in the pot are better than one in the sticker bush, right?!?
Maybe I will take the guys hunting again, soon. Tonight I will sleep well. All that fresh air and managing the two guys (did I mention Big Nick was there too?) is exhausting.
Dear Cliff and Shela
A New Hunting Partner is needed………
As you know, I’ve owned and hunted weim’s for the past 32 years and my 10 year old male needs to help me train my next hunting partner. My older daughter is 32 and our 1’st weim (Dutchess) joined us when Whitney was 6 months old- it’s been a love affair and commitment to the breed ever since.
We are a two Weim family……
We usually have at least 2 weims at all times, but lost our female (Princess) a little over a year ago–she was 13. Our dogs are actively hunted, and they also sleep on our bed at night. They are full-fledged members of the family. My male comes to the office every day and interacts with my patients, coming into the exam rooms with me.
This dog is just awesome- unbelievably smart and with a great personality. I went with the name Samson- he’s so incredibly strong it just fit. This has been a true joy. You guys have done a great job here. Thanks
Breeder’s Note: Skip lives in New Jersey where he has an active medical practice. His friend Michael got a Weim from us last year. Michael’s Weim was recently featured here on the OwyheeStar Weimaraners New’s blog–click here to read more about Minka!
This was the only silver gray male (traditional smooth coat) born to Lacee’s recent litter. The parents are the same as for the now infamous Willow (click here). As you can understand, the good doctor has better things to do that to take photos of his new fur family member. The photo was from the OwyheeStar archives. Below is Lacee with her recent litter (all have went to live with their new forever families).
