Lots of smelling going on. Both she and Jack had a ball. Bella even did a great imitation of the Flying Nun! Showing my age with that old show! Hope you and Cliff are doing well! Zula Blue x Stackhouse the magnificent!

Sometimes I think these Weims have all the fun. Who wouldn’t like a trip to Brookings? Thanks for thinking of us.

Something Fishy

About Camping

 

Mommy and daddy took me to a new place with lots of fun stuff to do and new smells. We went to this place they kept calling the beach it was so much fun. We played in the water and I ran so fast. Daddy even brought my ball so I could chase it. I was so tired when we get back I had to take a few power naps.

Later mommy and daddy took me on a walk to this place with big rocks by the water. It was so cool there, mommy had a long stick with a string at the end and she kept shaking it above the water until finally she got super excited and pulled out what they called a fish. It was so interesting I kept wanting to put it in my mouth but they wouldn’t let me. We had so much fun I can’t wait to go again.

Vacation

Arliss and Jorga

    ~ Weimar Cousins

After sending Jorja’s Papa off to Montana, Arliss asked to take a vacation from his little brother and go to the beach with cousin Jorja. Of course, both mommy’s said sure.  Tomorrow and Thursday we get to go on the beach walk with Jorja’s mommy and other dogs.

Then on Friday meet a new friend Butters. ( Auntie. Eileen will try to send more pictures. ) Our friend’s mommy, Jeannie from Shasta, who visited me at Auntie Arleen’s when I was a puppy. I hope I remember her too. I go back home to mommy on Tuesday when Auntie goes on her first cruise.

Thank you, Eileen, for the updates and the various photos and videos. We had a little problem with the video but ended up posting it just as it is. We are happy to see you spending time with family–and Arliss with his cousin Jorga.

Friends

Jeanne Writes!

   ~ at the beach with the Weims

Adria and I were thinking of you today while we walked on the beach. I think it’s wonderful how friendships can develop with the help of our dogs! What a coincidence that Adria and I met in a field with Zeus and Gatsby and found out that they both had come from you! Now we walk together quite often.
 
Gatsby & ZeusToday we took them to a beach close to Adria’s house. It was the first time there for Zeus. They had so much fun running on the sand and through the shallow water. Zeus has also developed a taste for starfish, unfortunately.
 
We thought you may enjoy a picture of them romping together and having fun. I’m certain it makes you happy to see them living a good life after they leave you. They are both such good and lovable boys!
 
Thank you for such a wonderful dog and for the friendship that became of it because of the fantastic work that you do! 🙂
 
I hope that you are doing well and think of you often! 
 
Love,
 
Jeanne & Zeus

Thank you, ladies, for thinking of us. It is fun to see them having such a great romp on the beach. It is heartwarming to know that they are much-loved, too! We appreciate this update. It could not have come at a better time.

Reunions

It’s Amazing

     ~Jorja Remembered

Jorja is loving up on her “interim” Mom, Emma.  Arleen and Emma took care of her until she could make the journey to Belgium.  She hasn’t seen Emma since she was 16 weeks old, but she remembered her.  Jorja was a trouper, she made the 8 hrs flight from Brussels to Chicago, hopping into her crate with ease. Through customs in Chicago, back into her crate after a drink and potty break for the 6 hr. flight to Portland, OR.  She was happy to see cousins Arliss (Arleen’s Blue), Auto and Izzy.  She seems to have a crush on Arliss.

At Home

Jorja is happy and loving her new home 🏡. Her new favorite word is beach.  She and I have started walking with a ladies walking group. She loves to run, greet people as well as other dogs. One lady calls her the new LB greeter. Not to forget the birds–she still loves them too.
I am thrilled with her approach to the water. She also hasn’t been in the water since at Arleen’s when a puppy, but she is in it now! It is going well. We are home near family, she has adjusted. We are doing well.

PS: Here are our some of our very special friends

We were so happy to hear that Jorga was safely stateside; however, the picture you paint is beyond amazing. What an excellent traveler.
It sounds like she slipped into her new life. She loves the beach. She loves the people. She loves everything about her life. Isn’t that fabulous? Thank you, Eileen, for the share. If you live near Long Beach you might meet Jorga, she will be glad to make your acquaintance.

The Early Stage

Our Maelee

~Enjoying Life

3062

She loves playtime with the kids, fetching & retrieving every day. Introduced her to the sheds, though we’ll wait a little longer due to height and she can still be a bit clumsy at times.

She is very smart & likes to test us (repetition is key); we’ve used hand signals along with voice commands throughout her training (helpful for hunting later on, we prefer this method over whistle training). Overall she is very loved, happy, healthy and has made her place in our hearts. We look forward to every new adventure, and with our very active family, she has much to look forward, too!

3116Training is going great! 1st time playing in the sand this week, too!

We love the photo documentation. Thanks for that! We love seeing she is working at the Versatile lifestyle thing–all terrain Weimar.

Friendliest

Zelda is the Greatest

   ~California Weimar Girl

Stephenson's Zelda_1476
Two years ago we received a beautiful blue female Weimaraner from you folks. We met Cliff in Burns Oregon, we are from California. Zelda is what we named her. Stackhouse was there when we picked her up. Her docked tail has a very notable flip to it. Everyone loves it, as she trots, most friendliest to everyone, except cats and raccoons.
Stephenson's Zelda_1479

Eye on the Sky

We live in a pretty normal Weimaraner home.  Zelda has been very vocal these days, I can only guess what all the bumbling is about, urban raccoons and skunks.

Dog Park Star

Star of the dog park is Ms. Zelda. As most know, when puppies run into the park the other dogs come over to check her out, sniff, she runs over to the dog’s parent who seems to bother her the most, and plants herself between their legs, they become taken by her and protects Zelda.  LOL LOL!  Zelda leans into pet parents, they think she loves them. She is very sociable there, everyone knows her by name.

She is a Standout

We have come across two other young Weimaraners.  What separates her from the other weims is temperament and physical appearance, her tail flips up as she moves around, she is outstanding.

The Beach; the Ocean and Miss Zelda

This is Zelda doing one of her favorite outings. Carmel by the Sea is where this video was taken. Her parents are Stackhouse and Livee, she was born July 12, 2016.

Love sharing

We are delighted to hear from you. The videos are fun and the photos delightful. It is good to know Zelda is doing well–that she is living a perfect Weimar life. Thank you, for thinking of us, as well as for all you do for your OwyheeStar girl.

Our Longhair

Chloe

03060820-DFB5-4998-A1A2-90D0B885F5DE
Chloe will be 2 in September and has been doing so well lately with obedience- the key seems to be exercise and planning for variety in her routines. She definitely is prone to the concrete thinking so we make sure to mix it up.
Photos: Chloe trudges through any river, puddle or lakeshore she encounters- but does not freely swim. She can swim and will if we are also in the water but she seems to mostly prefer wading in up to her chest. And at the Oregon coast-Chloe’s happiest place on earth. She will run for hours chasing birds on the beach and especially enjoys climbing rocks.
We’d really love to add a puppy before Chloe gets too much older and too set in her ways.

Breeder Comment

We are glad you love Chloe so much. Well, I love being at home. Nevertheless, if I am able to escape for a vacation let it be the Oregon Coast. We look forward to working with you again soon.

At the Beach

With Bella and Company

Bella spends more time traveling than most and she loves every moment.

 

There are times when I long to escape life and one of the best places to accomplish that for me in the Oregon Coast. We have made many trips over the years–but it is never enough. The only thing that is possibly better is to be at the beach with the Weimaraner. I think you might agree. Debbie has Bella and her Levi, too. You might remember them for a while back, but they also sent a couple of fun videos, don’t you agree?

Thank you, Debbie, for the great videos and sharing your experience. We truly appreciate. We hope you are doing something equally fun on the fine January Sunday.

 

Wendy and Roo

Fun— at Gearhart Beach!

Here are some photos from our fun stay. Keep in mind Roo is thinking all kinds of thoughts. Which bed is mine mister is thinking? Is that my muffin, or if not, then where is mine?
