Our weimy weekend

We had a very weimy weekend. We got to watch Nina, Ronix's sister, and they had a blast. Vienna did get a little sad at times since sometimes the big dogs wouldn't let her play, so that just means she got extra snuggles and playtime with us :) She does have great pouty expressions though! Warning: picture overload, as always. Enjoy!                       
  Here is the crew running, jumping, rolling and pouncing.

Finally, a picture of all 3 resting.

Ronix, trying to catch his breath from nonstop running.

Nina keeping the ball from Ronix.

Vienna watching the action with her very own ball.
I love her stance! She's such a pretty girl.
"Here I come!" One of my favorite pics from the day (I take an obsessive amount).
"Hey, Dad, over here!" Another favorite :)
Uh oh! Here come the crazies!
Find the tennis balls, Vienna is learning quickly! She even tried to pick up two at the same time! Haha.

Now onto the indoor entertainment:
Sibling love. These two are inseperable, much to little Vienna's dismay.
Ronix doing his "love nibbles" haha.
One big smile.
This is how it was most of the weekend, Vienna is looking a bit sad, she didn't like being left out of the fun.
So sad :(
Watching Ronix and Nina from her cozy place.

Finally, Vienna got her play time with Nina.
She was so happy to get some cuddle time with Ronix.

And there you have it, a glimpse into our weimy weekend! It was a blast!

Vienna: From Cali to Utah

This is our little Vienna, before we brought her home. She is about 23 days old here. So tiny!

Here she is at the airport, 8 weeks old, bravely waiting for our flight home.

I made sure to get a picture of her in her travel carrier because I knew I would never believe she actually fit in it! She liked to lay in it, I think she felt safe. She soon preferred the BIG crate though :)

Sitting pretty.

I just loved her little pink belly! Sleeping in a true weim fashion already.

Enjoying her water bottle.

Their first couch cuddles.

I don't know if you can tell, but if you notice how tight of a ball Ronix is in, he was trying to stay as far away from the "little new thing". I think his expression reveals his concerns. ;)

I could go on and on and on posting pictures, but, I figured I would try to keep it reasonable ;) I flew out to California on the 29th of January 2010, and brought Vienna home January 30th. She was exactly 8 weeks old that weekend. The first few days she was so mellow and sweet. She then started coming out of her mellow state and letting her personality out, and was quite the little sassafrass. We had thought we liked the name Violet, but changed it to Vienna after seeing more of her cute personality. She slept the entire flight and never made one peep. She did so well! I probably had more anxiety than she did-it was a small plane on the way home. She was timid and a little scared of Ronix at first because he was a little strange with his weimy zoomies, but she soon learned how to sass back. It was so cute to watch her march up and grab whatever toy Ronix had taken from her. She would literally tell him what's up, she is a very vocal puppy! Next will be 12 week pictures :)

Well we did it. We got another Weim puppy, but this time around we went with a Long Haired Weimaraner :) She is sooooo adorable, and is such a little sassy shadow. Don't worry, pictures to follow soon. I must get the hard drive from my house first. Her name is Vienna, which means "from wine country." As we got her from California, we thought it was very fitting. I went out to California to pick our our newest addition at the beginning of February, and bring her home, and it was a tough job! All of the puppies were soo cute, and each had their own individual traits. I ended up choosing Vienna (aka little red girl) because she was the one that stood out to us in photos, and also because I loved how much she would observe. And of course I loved the puppy kisses and cuddles :) Vienna weighed about 14 lbs when I brought her home, and at 17 weeks she is up to about 35 lbs! She's growing like a weed, pretty soon I won't be able to just pick her up anymore.

Ronix wasn't sure what to think of her for the first few days. I'm not sure he knew what she was. They are pretty thick now, very true brothers and sisters (sometimes I'm not so sure that's a good thing.) I'm trying to get it through their heads that I like their ears, so no decorative "punctures" are needed, and I'd prefer they not bite each others face as they will need their eyes...little scoundrels they are! The cutest thing is when they cuddle though. Although it's also pretty cute when Vienna gets on the couch so she can really pounce on big brother while he's laying down he he he. Such a sneaky one.

Pictures soon to follow!
