Our own snowman...

Wotan still loves to play in the snow, especially when there are toys and competition involved.
Waiting for the throw...such intense looks on their faces.
It's mine little girl!
Tandem Weims!
Catch me if you can!

Snow, what snow?

A hiking we will go...

Difficult to get a decent shot of a moving target. When Wotan is out hiking, he is constantly on the move, exploring and checking out all the interesting smells. Not as agile as he used to, he still keeps up and reminds us how much joy he gets from being in the woods and with us.

Fall fun

Here I am! Such a good boy!

Wotan loved running in the field with Jam at the preserve today. Even at 13, he's still such a pup and with those flying nun ears, you can't help but smile.

Happy 13th Birthday Wotan!!!

My special boy and best bud, turned 13 years old today! I've truly been blessed to have him this long and he is still in great health, doing all the things he loves like hiking, backyard agility and major couch potato!

Enjoying Cape Cod

Hanging with his best girl.
Wotan, almost 13 years old, still has a bounce in his step as he trots along the trail in the salt marsh.
Contemplating a dip in the water...he loved retrieving his floating Kong.
Our Weim crew!
Lots of cool things to check out.

Springtime Hike

We enjoyed a beautiful spring day hiking at Harriman State Park hoping to find the mountain laurel in bloom. We were a few days too early to see these pretty flowers so we will just have to go back another day. Wotan, Trixie and Jam LOVE to hike and the opportunity to explore the woods. It also tires the dogs out, which is a good thing!
Wotan with his mud boot on!
Hard to believe that Wotan will be 13 in September - he is in amazing shape.A nice cool drink on this hot day
and off he goes!

Wotan keeps careful watch of the pups romping on the deck...puppyvision!

Thursday, April 16, 2009


Wotan thought I wouldn't notice him squeezed into the puppy crate as we set up the puppy pen. Jam was in heaven nooking on the pink octopus... she must get one of her own!
These two are best buddies and love spending time together. Wotan is extremely tolerant of Jam's puppy antics and will play with her as well as cuddle with her.

I'm still a puppy...

Wotan thought he would try out the puppies' warming bed...
Sorry buddy, but just because it's on your favorite chair doesn't mean it is for you.

The Sit-Nap

Wotan takes a power-nap in the kitchen, sitting by the treat jar, in the hopes that when he wakes up, rewards will fall from the heavens!This is much more comfy, especially for a dog of his stature.

Is it Spring yet?

Today was an almost Springlike day with weather in the 40's and a chance for the frozen tundra I call my backyard to thaw and became safe again for the dogs to run and play.Wotan was so excited, especially when I brought out his all time favorite toy...the Kong on a rope!
Wotan loves retrieving and carrying this toy, whether on land or water.
He especially loves playing keep away with Jam.It's mine, all mine...poor Jam.

Looking back...1997

Wotan earned his first Junior Hunter leg in the Spring of 1997 at the Nutmeg Weimaraner Club Hunt Test in Connecticut. He worked for a very pregnant handler, me on the left, and stacked nicely for Cheryl Lent, longtime Weimaraner breeder. The judges were relieved that I finished the brace without going into labor!

Not impressed...

While that silly puppy may be impressed by those big birds outside, yawn, Wotan clearly is not.Is it possible to nap while sitting???
