~ And More!
We wanted to give you an update on our sweet Darcy. She is 2 years old now. We are so grateful for our beautiful girl. She is such a wonderful part of our family, and it’s hard to remember what life was like before she came to us.
She loves to hunt, hike, swim, play with the kids, give the baby lots of kisses, go running with mom, and torment the chickens. Everywhere we go we get compliments on what a beautiful dog she is. People familiar with weims also comment on how small she is. She’s 45 lbs and a lot smaller than other weims we come across. We remember you mentioning that her mother and grandmother were on the smaller side as well, so we’ve never worried about it. She is just the perfect size for us. 😊
We’ve attached a few pictures. One is on her birthday. She wasn’t very thrilled about the silly crown we put on her, but she tolerated it because she knew a tasty breakfast was coming.
Thanks again for all you do! We love our sweet Darcy.
We have fewer and fewer under-sized pups. That will make many sad. Nevertheless, you cannot keep breeding back to the same lineage. New blood (such as Boone) brings depth and diversity to our gene pool. That is a good thing.
We are thrilled to hear she is versatile on every level–the perfect fit for your hunting and the family life. What more could we hope? Thank you, ever so much for remembering us with this update. It means the world!
Waiting At the Bus Stop
Just a quick update on Remy. She is doing so great! She has a very sweet personality, and she sure is smart. She enjoys getting out for little walks and is getting much better at walking on the leash. Every day she waits with me at the bus stop for the kids to get home and she now starts her excited tail wagging as soon as the bus rounds the corner. She has so easily fit into our family.
She is still doing great with potty training and being in the crate. She has also learned to sit, stay, come and even shake. We haven’t worked with her much yet but she picks up the commands quickly. She is getting better with the biting, a few times we have used a little spray bottle to spray a bit of water in her face to stop her, but she usually can be redirected with a chew toy. I cannot believe how much she has already grown! She has a big appetite.😀 She is a joy and such a beautiful dog. We are so happy she has joined our family.I hope you are all well and we’ll stay in touch!Haley
Growing, Learning, and a lot of Fun!
Berkley is growing like a weed. Sometimes we call her “bean stalk” because she is growing so fast.
She’s learning more and more every day and we are enjoying her so very much. She is sweet with a twist of feistiness!
Berkley and Our DaughtersBerkley is excited about learning Latin along with our daughters.
Then, she is showing off her ability to heel alongside our 7-year-old. We use the Starmark Collar you recommend on your website and taught our girls how to use it properly.Until next time,Amanda
We are delighted to learn that things are going well with Berkley. It is great she is such an integral part of the family. Then too–it is beyond surprising that she is heeling for your 7-year-old daughter. Many of our adults (write us) that they are unable to achieve the loose-leash heel. When you understand how to use that collar, and it is used (correctly) a lot of good things can happen.
We sincerely appreciate you thinking of us and sharing a window into your life with Berkley. Keep up the consistent effort and things will continue to move forward positively.
Blu Came Home
~in January 2013
Blu has faced a Big Change
Our Birthday Walk
Blu was the Perfect Pup
We are Happy to have Blu in our Lives
I am a huge dog-lover. As a kid, I grew up with Labs. As an adult (and as a father) I had to take a back seat to what dogs my kids liked. Needless to say, it has been a long time coming for me to have “My Dog”. The kids are grown, that is except for our four-year-old. She is not yet old enough to select her dog of choice. This time around it is my turn. I love the fact that they are friendly and feel part of the family. Have looked into this breed for years.
Blu is making his way into our home and hearts
Plenty of room for Blu to run around. My youngest Daughter is in love with Blu, and he likewise with her.
A Toddler and the Weimar Pup
When we got Luna, my grandson was ten months old. I was a little apprehensive to let them play because Luna was (is) a puppy. She plays a little rough and kisses with her teeth 🙂 she and Elijah have been besties since the day they met! Elijah makes sure she has enough to eat. Luna has never hurt him with her teeth. she’s so careful with him. They rest together, and they are constantly switching toys. In the picture Eli wanted the blue bone so he gave her the duck & took the bone …. Luna also wanted the bone, so she took it back, but still gentle enough to not cause a stir, I love their relationship 😍
There have been several folks who have had this same experience; however, there has been a call from a woman who stuck her face into her pup’s face, and she got bit. Did it mean anything? No–nonetheless, it is best to avoid those situations. Proceed with caution. Many times the Weimaraner pup will not trouble the baby whereas they young children get tagged. Their energy fuels a game, and it gets too rough. The pup visualized them as their littermates. They exchanged bites and knocked each other over too! We love this report. Thank you, Nancy!
Obi wan is doing great.
His obedience training is going swimmingly, and I have started incorporating some minor bird training. I got hooked up with a buddy from work who runs a bird hunting club and have gotten some training tips to start with but we don’t work long (10-15 min a few times a day). I’m looking forward to his shots being complete so we can get more outdoors.
As always him and my youngest daughter are best friends. He this far is a great addition to the family, and we couldn’t be happier. He will be getting a small taste of hunting in the fall.
Breeder’s Note: The photos were used with permission. Please do not reproduce them without the owner’s written permission. This note from Justin is a very nice update. We love that it covers the training, as well as living with the Weimaraner. Clearly, they are doing well. We appreciate the effort it takes everyone to raise the Weimaraner. Keeping us updated is a huge plus.
It’s hunting season again, and we hunted for dove out in Blythe California this past weekend.
Temperatures were hot but he did great! We always hunt next to or very close to a canal so he can stay nice and wet and cooled off. He did great finding and retrieving our downed birds. Sorry, we didn’t get any video or action photos.
Some would say the family that hunts together stays together. For sure, this is a fun experience that affords a special bonding experience.
Breeder’s Note: We are thrilled to receive word that G2 continues to be a great family member, and awesome hunting companion. Recently John, John Sr., and the kids all went out to hunt doves. Here are some photos from their trip.
She was calm and well-behaved, so many people commented on how good she was. I also had her “down stay” for several tiny toddlers, so they could pet her head and back without being scared of her being face-to-face with them. The parents thanked me for taking the time to do that, Willow is such a good girl!!!
