So Much Happiness Shared
Can you believe Colby is 10? It seems like we just brought him home!
The last decade has brought us so much happiness. It’s hard to think about everything having a weimaraner has done for us and sum it all up. But if I had to sum it up in 3 words, I would say best. dog. ever!
These days, Colby prefers lazing around the house and snuggling. He doesn’t ever hesitate to tell me when it’s bedtime. Most nights, my husband comes to bed after me. So Colby takes his place and often nudges his face in my shoulder until daddy comes and kicks him out of his spot.
As he develops more gray around the muzzle, I realize that our time with him is slowly becoming more limited. Still though, we will continue to enjoy every moment we can for however many more years we are blessed to have him.
These are some favorite photos of Colby over the last 10 years along with a video celebrating his birthday. We celebrated his 10 years with a little bit of home made (doggy friendly) ice cream and some peanut butter. He was a happy boy.
Jenn, thanks for remembering us with this lovely update. You have been faithful to stay in touch all these years and give us photos, funny stories, and newsy reports. We do so appreciate it. While being deployed, you sent that great video of you Skyping with Colby–you are the best. Thanks ever so much for everything –and especially for your service.
Celebrating One Year
Our girl is 1 year old today. Freyja is the best!
We use all kind of positive adjectives –maybe we just say she is awesome. We celebrated her birthday–she is definitely much loved.
We are happy to celebrate right along with you. In light of the new Dixie X Boone litter, it is beyond excellent to have this update. Everyone will appreciate it. Thanks and Happy Birthday to Freyja.
Here is Zeus enjoying his first Puppacinno at Starbucks on his 7th birthday on October 17th!
I’ve been working hard on my Weimaraner art that I thought you may like to see. Of course, I use my favorite Weimaraner, Zeus, as a model! 🙂
I create custom Christmas ornaments from any picture of a pet. It helps if they are clear, close up pictures. The ornaments are transferred onto painted wood, distress and waxed. They also have a rustic looking wire hook for hanging. The ornaments are around 4″ x 4″ depending on the picture. I also make custom wall art that is a little bigger than the ornaments. I am attaching a picture of the ornaments. I sell them for $15.00 each and all you have to do is email me a picture at: firstname.lastname@example.org or text it to me at: (360) 441-0112I also make custom signs. I made the above Weimaraner sign (of course). They are done on painted wood, hand painted, distressed and waxed. I can add a rustic hanging wire on the top or on the back of the sign but they also stand on their own. The color of the background is also up to you! I’ve used Grey for obvious reasons. 😉 All lettering is hand painted. I also painted a Weimaraner head but that is optional. I’ve attached the picture of the sign I made. I sell them for $20 each. So, if anyone is interested, I would love to create something special for their home.Jeanne & Zeus
July 23, 2015--Today is Lucy’s 9th birthday. She and Luigi got a special treat of chicken while Bob and I sang Happy Birthday to her. I took a video that I hope turned out well enough for you to see and hear. We hope you enjoy it, although our singing is pretty bad!!! LOL!!! The kids, of course, gobbled down the treat. Lucy was smiling which I’m glad showed up on the video.

Breeder’s Note — Thank you, Idelle and Bob, for allowing us to share this video. Happy Birthday to Lucy!
For some there is a great deal of fanfare
Breeder’s Note: Many people who live with the Weimaraner go to extreme measures to celebrate every year. In our way of thinking, this is a good thing. A person doesn’t know the number of days, or years they might share. Each one is precious. These wonderful creatures make us better humans. Why not celebrate? This included a special canine swim pass, toy, hat, and cake. Zeus is much-loved.
