Expectation. July 16th. We finally traded in the 2012 Audi Q5 for a 2022 Subaru Outback!!! Of course, our first errand was dog related and Mango had to be the first guest. Thank you Southern Kern Veterinary Hospital for getting us in quickly so we could get home before the traffic started. It appears we’re expecting FIVE little nuggets to arrive next week. After the loss of Mango’s previous litter, we’re hoping to finally have our happy ending. The next few days will be busy while we load up on supplies, get a new layer of blankets ready, and pray to the fertility gods for an uneventful delivery. More to follow soon. xoxo
Barrett Weimaraners is pleased to announce a planned breeding this Spring/Summer between CH Cheyenne’s The Big Easy JH ACT2 TKA NSD NRD V, “Louie,” and CH Smokey Topaz ‘n Barrett’s Santa Margarita Peak, “Mango.” The purpose of this out-breeding (COI over ten generations is low at 9.74%) is to preserve a beautiful, moderate and versatile Weimaraner with a beautiful headpiece, balanced structure and high bird drive.
The best puppies out of this litter are expected to do very well in AKC conformation shows, as well as hunt tests and ratings. As companion dogs, we expect them to be active, loyal, and family-oriented.
More about Louie. Louie was bred by Christine Trujillo of Cheyenne Weimaraners in Colorado. Louie finished his Championship in 6 weekends with a 4 point major and a pair of 5 point majors. ❤ Proving he’s not just a pretty face, Louie also earned his Junior Hunter title and learned to swim! Then earned both is Novice Shooting Dog and Novice Retrieving Dog titles, which qualified him for his Versatile rating! Somewhere in between, he knocked out 3 levels of Trick Dog titles, and qualified his ACT1 status. Then he passed all his health/breeding clearances with flying colors!
More about Mango. Mango’s grandmother is our foundation bitch, Friday. If you’ve been following Barrett Weimaraners for any length of time now, you’ll know that our entire lives revolve around her, her kids, and her grandkids. We photo-journal the crap out of them. Mango in particular is incredibly photogenic. She’s also brilliant, sassy, tenacious, and mischievous. That said, she’s also friendly, kind, mellow, demure, and poised. Mango is the kind of dog that breeders dream about.
When I’m meeting someone at a coffee shop to introduce them to Weimaraners, she’s my go-to girl. Friendly with everyone she sees, content to sit under a table, quiet as a church mouse, she almost lulls people into a false sense the Weimaraners are perfect. (They are not.)
Mango was the six month old puppy who inadvertently spent an entire afternoon loose in the house while we were away. (We forgot to lock her up, oops.) We came home to an angel who was still sleeping on her bed, and she hadn’t touched a thing.
On another occasion, I was traveling with Mango to Arkansas, and we had stopped at a friend’s house in New Mexico for the night. (We were on our way to a National Field Trial, and Mango actually placed Third in the National Open Derby Stake!) I left Mango in the guest bedroom so I could have some dinner and conversation. By now, I knew her well enough to expect this, but I was still impressed when I returned a few hours later, and she was just sitting on the bed, waiting for me.
Mango is also the kind of girl who will shoot you a dirty look or sneer in your direction… all because you wouldn’t share the chicken. After all, she is a Weimaraner, and Weimaraners are S-P-E-C-I-A-L.
Really though, Mango’s best trait is that she’s good natured. And she’s more affectionate than most of them. Mango is the one who has to ride shotgun with her head on your lap. She’s under the covers with her head on your pillow. And she’s always down for a road trip, no matter where the location.
Should you be lucky enough to bring home one of her puppies this year, you’ll know exactly what I mean.
