~ At Your Service

I arrived not too long ago–and ever since then I have been working my way into their hearts (It didn’t require much. You Weimars know what I am talking about. I have a lot of other work to do–like any new Weim. The resident Weimaraner had to be won over, you understand.

More Importantly

I have to entertain my hoomans, and their friends. So, here you go–

Murphy, it is so fabulous the way you take care of your family–we know your Mama (Sylvia) pours a ton of love on you, too. You are a lucky boy. Well, the truth is you have your Mama by her tail–turning her head every which way. You are a very fortunate boy.

George adjusts, and learns the ropes

Did you have any luck finding out where you purchased the pink ball toy? I found one similar to it on ebay and he had it destroyed in 5 minutes! I know you felt bad that it was a pink ball, but we really liked it.

Breeder’s Note: No, we cannot find another ball like that one. It seemed to be the best toy we had for George (as he was a bit older by the time he left OwyheeStar). Too bad he destroyed your new find in five minutes. He must have enjoyed it, but the joy was short-lived.

George_on_couchWe continue to do well. George is a great dog but he needs a lot of training. He hates the rain and has changed his potty behavior to soiling in the house. Yuk.

Breeder’s Note: Although the Weimaraner is a wonderful companion, they are also challenging. One wrong turn can create a wealth of issues. The ONLY way it works, as far as we have ever seen, is for the owner/handler to start the journey, and to work through the issues as they arise. These critters will find every weak spot, and push every button. It is nothing personal. It is their way. They are not for the person who doesn’t get them. Hopefully, George will realize soiling in the house is not pleasing to you, and he will want to comply with your wishes more than not. We are big on freedom is earned. Opportunity to do things can get the Weimaraner into trouble, and all too soon lead to behavior issues. It only takes fourteen days to forge a habit.

He was neutered about 10 days ago and the surgery was uneventful. He is recovering nicely.George_camping

Now we just have to do something with all of his ENERGY 🙂

Breeder’s Note: Yes, they have a lot of energy–two speeds (on and off). Sometimes I think of it as full speed ahead rather than ‘on’. They keep us active.

I hope that you and Cliff are doing well.

Sincerely,

Kimberly

I call her Looney Toons

Sometimes we call her Lunatic…

aLunaLUNA 020Thought i would send you a quick email and let you know how luna was doing. After getting to know this crazy puppy she has developed her registered name Looney Tunes, as well as many nick names haha my favorite lunatic! She is so smart and at 12 weeks already knows how to sit, lay down, and shake a paw, beginning to learn how to heal, plays fetch and potty training is going amazing. The only accidents she has is if i am too focused on my studying and do not pay attention to her ques, she still has never had an accident in her crate since i got her 5 weeks ago!

 Socialization continues….

LUNA 035She has been lucky and has many puppy friends and has already had exposure to overnight stays at a friends house when i needed a few extra hours to complete extra school shifts. She had no big deal with it. She has meet both my horses one whom loves her to death and stands perfectly still so she can smell him and the other on is a little jealous. She hasn’t gotten the concept of how big they are so I am extra careful with her around their feet.

 She is crate friendly…

Do I look like trouble????

Do I look like trouble????

She is also very friendly with her crate. Truth be told i was letting her sleep with me initially but she wouldn’t stop moaning haha she can never get comfy and gets so angry when i move on her.

She didnt like sleeping on the floor, however if i crate her at night she sleeps for the whole 6 hours without a peep.

She is high-energy….

LUNA 031She has more energy then i know what to do with and this is how she developed her names looney tunes, lunatic, crazy, and floopy. I can play with her and walk her for 30 minutes outside letting her run like crazy in the field beside my house, and when she comes inside she  still flies around like a bat outta hell. lol I love her to death! and am glad that she is learning so quick!

Breeder’s Comment: We are happy to hear the two of you are having a great time together. She came at the perfect time for you (having completed your boards for the US and Canada). Congratulations. We know eventually you will be living and practicing medicine near Calgary. For now, she is a great friend, and a much-needed diversion from your demanding schedule. Thank you for all you are doing with her, and for her. :O)
