Oh, the places we have gone!


Charlie Mae and Murphy–Part One

     ~ Home For the Holidays

Again, Shela, I am Wrapped up for Christmas


It’s been TOO long since my last update to you!  We are having a wonderful Holiday Season at the Spight house.  Charlie Mae and Murphy are doing great and have fully taken to their roles as our Fur Children!  Charlie is now 6, and Murphy is 5.

Shared Covers


They sleep with us EVERY night, Murphy prefers to be full-on under the covers (usually rotates to have his face sticking out at some point).  Charlie likes to rotate between being partially under the covers and out of the covers (I think she gets too hot).  The movement back and forth drives Jill a little crazy, but she still likes to snuggle with them throughout the night also, so they remain as permanent bed companions it seems.

Happy Holidays and lots of love to you all! The Spight Family

Breeder Comment

We are ever so happy to know your Weim-loving family. It is fabulous to know that both Charlie Mae and Murphy are doing well–at least doing Weimar type things. (Haha)

We loved seeing your annual Christmas Tree Lighting with Charlie Mae. I saw someone copied you–it was a Facebook post a few days ago. Don’t worry Charlie Mae–they cannot be considered the same as you–a Christmas Poster Girl.

I was thinking “Don’t shake the bed.”

What a great photo–thanks Mikelle. I am glad you and your best friend share so much.

Moments

Etched on the Heart

Where do we begin? For the Weimlover there are inexplicable moments etched in our psyche. There is no ready made explanation to those who don’t get it. We nod to those who think they understand but never have experienced the Weimar. They say, “it is just like my Labrador.” We nod and smile and our thoughts spin. We think something like if they only knew.

20842143_10214275589950551_509192260212099536_nWhat we share extends around the clock. For many, this includes snuggling in the bed and waking to something like ‘Dunkin’ looking at you expectantly. Sometimes the look is more of a seriously it cannot be time to get up look. Or possibly there is the look that says are we going to do something fun–like eating people breakfast together.

Yesterday, we delighted in Tripp’s story. He and Rachel share a special connection. If you were to know the backdrop on both sides, it would bring tears to your eyes. Call us silly, but we believe the Good Lord brings the most incredible people across our path. Sometimes we are allowed to share something extraordinary. It might be that we are afforded the opportunity to help a dream unfold, to bring a little healing, or to take part in a minor miracle. What a privilege it is indeed.

OwyheeStar Meet Ups

You never know whether Tripp and Dunkin might meet up in one of their many adventures. Tripp gets around Oregon. Dunkin (as far as we know) hangs closer to the Bend area. I am sure he makes it to the Oregon Coast and the other major venues. Maybe their paths will cross, or they will connect with another OwyheeStar Weim. We are positive that there is a special look for that experience too! Oh, how these guys delight our heart in ways words cannot capture.

Beginnings are special. The young ‘Dunkin’ enjoyed plenty of snuggles early in life. You might want to check out this very early Dunkin Blog Post–Click Here!

This is Where We Sleep

17992317_1301969653186338_5810763892627142803_nDoes your Weimaraner sleep with you or get snuggle time on (or in) the bed? The debate about whether you should allow your dog in your bed is a thing. Ultimately, it is a personal choice. Some reports indicate that nearly 80% of dog owners allow their pet in their bed. Do you?

Here are some links on the topic!

Your Choice

Your opinion matters. We live in the information age. You can find supporting evidence no matter the side you endorse. It is a personal thing. We ought to be aware of any risk and from there decide based on our lifestyle.

Featured Weimaraner — Bella

DSC02895Bossy Bella...

Bella is just awesome, she tends to be a bit bossy at times.  Typical in what I’ve dealt with in this breed.

Nervous peeing (click here for a link on the topic)

Hope you are not posting our secrets...

Hope you are not posting our secrets…

She has started to pital pee when she gets over excited.  We are dealing with this daily by talking to her calmly and not adding to her already excited state.

Playing Fetch is Fun

She has pointed once or twice but that is all.  She loves to play fetch so I’m working on commands of release with her.

Bella loves to cuddle and get in our bed with us…IMG_20130412_092723_216DSC02883

She loves to sleep with us but we limit that as to not let it get out of control and she doesn’t share her pink chair with anyone.  She knows that’s all hers!

Bella loves the car

We took a trip to Idaho and she loved the car ride, in fact if you leave the car door open she takes it over.  That is about it for now.

Bella Camps in StyleIMG_20130525_130547_362

Bella’s second camping trip.  Our friends bought her a tutu.  Look at me so pretty.IMG_20130525_130549_157

Breeder’s Note:

The female Weimaraner most usually likes to run the house. They are clever, and manipulative. Oh, and maybe we should add, they are surprisingly creative. Despite the challenges, some people delight in the Weimar-antics. Bella’s parents are Weim-savvy, and have her number (so-to-speak).
