Best Dog Ever~
Typical pose with legs crossed
Zula Blue came to us in 2011 as the sweet, little docile pup. Shela chose her well, as we live in Seattle with two young girls, so hoped for a mild and easy going, sweet heart. Zula has become an integral part of our family, often find right in the middle of the girls, snuggling daily with all. We joke that she thinks she is a cat, as she climbs up on your lap.
Zula is also our marine girl. She prefers all things fish and loves walks on the beach. She loves to be up in the San Juan Island where she has all the amazing scents of fox, deer and racoons to nose and her mind occupied. Zula does not like the rain and will protest going out for long walks if raining. She is very bright and understands over 15 commands (below). At the end of each walk she knows to sit at the final corner until we coil the leash and tell her to ‘go home’, then she races to the house, sitting the porch waiting for us. She is the best dog ever!
Words Zula has knows: Walk, Sit, Come, Quiet, Cuddle, Pee Pee, Poop, Go around, Fix it (for leash), Stay, Down, Up, Shake, Cookie, Kisses, Go Home, Squirrel, Leave it
We named a girl Zula Blue right about the same time–and she is living in her Golden Year Placement. I love the name–and even more, love all that you have done for and with your girl.
~ Our First Week
I wanted to give you a quick update on how Enzo’s first week went. The drive back to Seattle went well and he slept almost the entire time. I can’t express how smart he is ( typical weim)!
His older fur sister Sophie ( 11yr old weim) is getting used to him, but it is a slow process. Today he went for his 9-week shot and weighs in at 13.3 lbs. Everyone their fell in love with him, I even got a text from the vet tech giving him lots of love. We want to thank you so much for what you and Cliff do, you truly are amazing! Have a great afternoon. Jessi and family
Have I ever told you that we meet some of the best people in the universe through the Weimaraners? If not, then I should. Thank you, Jessi–you have been so lovely and patient through the process. It is much appreciated. We genuinely appreciate this update on Enzo’s first week.
~ 12 Candles
Hard to believe it has been 12 years since we picked up this bundle of love from you!!!
Ava Blue (Megan x Blue) turned 12 and spent the day lounging next to me.
Happy Birthday Ava Blue–thanks for being such a sweet girl all these years.
~In The Driver’s Seat
Thor got his first driver’s lesson! How are you and Cliff doing? Thor has been doing very well. He goes on runs every morning and evening. Gets lots of exercise and loves it! I took him on a good few miles hike yesterday fishing and he was in heaven! He’s very well behaved and trained. He can heal, come, stay, sit and listens very well. He’s got his aloof moments when he wants to play. But he’s been an amazing family member.
He now even walks our Rottweiler mix Hannah ! Lol. He literally grabs the leash and starts pulling her on the walks. Lol it’s so funny
We also found out that Thor is not immune to Adeno virus, but we decided to NOT give him the vaccination for this because we read it’s rare for Weimes and not life threatening. what do you recommend?
First, this is where we say we are not Licensed Veterinarians, nor are we Licensed Veterinary Technicians. Vaccine issues are a serious matter for this breed–no one can attest to the truth of this more than someone who has had their Weimaraner succumb to serious life-threatening vaccine reaction. The puppy shot vaccinates for Adeno Virus II–which is against upper respiratory infections. Click here to read more.
We are most happy to see Thor as a central part of your life–and we love the photos. Thank you–this is a cute update. We genuinely appreciate it.
We were at my best friends house and Thor loves to lay on a couch and near his sister Chloe. Here he is on her lap. He’s a really good listener but has an aloof personality sometimes. (Lol) He’s always challenging us but he knows by now that I am the leader in the pack so it doesn’t last long before he corrects his attitude.
Just wasn’t sure with his breed if it was OK to go on hikes. The hike we are doing this weekend is only 3 miles each way so should be fine. The one I’m doing with my brothers the following week is 11 miles and higher elevation so I will spare him that one although I would have loved to take him with me. Next year I’ll be taking him on all my hikes!
Thank you for all the hard work you are putting into Thor. This breed is not easy to raise–if it isn’t one thing, then it is another. Being involved in family life and joining in on your adventures is a huge plus. Exercise is essential; however, high-impact exercise is saved for later–one the growth plates close. Hiking is an excellent activity.
~ You Never Know Where It Will End
My hero has once again saved me from the evil sky raisin…he did not take his 👀 off it until it was no more!😂🤣🐾🤦🏻♀️
It is all fun and games until the encounter with the Jalapeno variety slips into the mix. Sky raisin season is approaching quickly — have seen a few, but know they are preparing to bombard us with their in your face presence all too soon.
~The Journey Begins
Thor has been a blast, no crying, no accidents, really well potty trained, and showers us with kisses and loves. He loves the grass and playing with the girls all evening. He’s going to sleep well tonight lol (I hope!). Every time we took him out for a potty break it was instant once he landed on the grass. After eating his dinner we took him out for a 5 min walk and he picked a hidden corner and went for #2! So far he’s a huge success and the whole neighborhood can’t wait to meet him :).
So, the journey begins. We both know there will be ups and downs–challenges and joyful moments throughout the process of raising any Weimaraner puppy. We hope you will keep us apprised, and we truly appreciate this lovely note.
~ We Adopted Jack and He is Coming Home with us Soon
Meanwhile, I went into town yesterday to grab some things for Jack. Bowls for food, bed, harness and a toy. Welp…. Benson found the toy and turned it into his!!! 😂🥳🥰😳
We are excited for Jack to join his new forever family. We also understand why Benson adopted the new toy for his own. (Haha) We have a couple of those –I am thinking we ought to buy a box of them. But with all the hoarding, I feel badly wanting to make sure we have these for the future. (OMG)
They are a favorite around here.
~ Or Not
Daisy’s parents say, “she has the best personality” I think she makes them laugh a lot — and is a good snuggle-girl. What else does the soul need?
Maybe this brings a smile to you. I know it does to me. Possibly Daisy had a bit of help to achieve the look, but who cares?!? There are a few Weimlovers that groan every time we post features the Longhair, but others celebrate the fun, the joy, and the look.
~Last Day of School
This picture was taken on the last day of school June 10/19. Colten (my son) and Gunner are becoming best pals. Gunner is an awesome dog.
We want to add another Weimaraner to our family (you have our updated application). We got Gunner from you about 2 years ago, but his buddy, Remi, our Labrador recently passed away. We want to give Gunner a friend.
Thank you, for loving Gunner–and coming back for a second OwyheeStar. we are dreadfully sorry to hear about your Remi.
