Diva amazes and entertains…

OwyheeStar’s Diva

A (Moxie X Zee) OwyheeStar Pup

…..is Cliff’s almost constant companion.

She can do almost anything. She has been proven in hunt tests and has become a frequent Northwest Head-turner….

She is long on good looks

If it is not enough that she retrieves and loves Cliff, she also swims like a fish …

Watch this video and see what we mean…

Here is Cliff’s Latest Diva Tale…..

As most everyone knows, OwyheeStar acquired quite a few pheasants and chukars. This project has led to a lot of additional activity around the Nielsen Farm. Additional activity means the additional birds require adequate housing and a flight pen.

By this time Cliff had already created one pen for the young pheasants. Now, Cliff needed to create another for the chukars.  They had escaped their swimming pool and had taken over the entire inside shop work area. It was imperative that Cliff get them moved to their new home.

Carpenter Pencil

Moving the chukars meant moving things we had saved  and clearing these areas. (If you have never lived on a farm you cannot imagine all the things you need to save or store. Some antique whatnots that you cannot bear to throw out or sell must be kept. Wire, boards, metal, and things you might need are saved too. Small equipment, buckets, or what not must be kept. It all adds up and although we try not to keep things there are a lot of keepers. 🙂 )

Cleaning done….

Once Cliff had the areas cleaned it meant rebuilding–closing holes and adding chicken wire etc. He had to build secure doors and automatic waterers. It was like most projects–larger than the original plan!

A guy needs a carpenter pencil…

While working on the expanded bird area Cliff lost his carpenter’s pencil. He spent some time searching for the pencil but alas he counted it as lost.
As usual Diva was near by exploring and keeping watch. This is the normal Diva mode. All the while she remains attuned to Cliff and keenly aware of what he is doing.

The Attentive Diva…

Therefore, it was no surprise that when Cliff headed for the shop in search of another carpenter’s pencil and Diva caught up with him. Acutely aware that Diva had fallen in stride with him, Cliff looked down. There was his Diva her head tilted towards him. Perched in her mouth, Cliff’s missing carpenter’s pencil.

Cliff said Diva’s expression seemed to say, “Is this what you are looking for Dad?” Cliff could not help but laugh at his very special side-kick.

Cliff’s Diva…..

Diva on Cliff's Lap!

She does it all!  She swims, points birds, retrieves birds, and finds lost objects. Oh and she expects to be a lap dog in return. The doggie bed is OK on occasion, however, every evening she must climb atop Cliff’s lap and snuggle.

Last night Lacee came into join us and Cliff thought Diva and Lacee could share the dog bed. Indeed there was enough room but likewise they felt there was enough room for the both of them on Cliff’s lap. We grabbed the TV remote to save it and moved a few other things before stuff went flying off the end table.

The joys of life with a Weimaraner are many!

  1. That’s too cute – Rowan brought me a pencil just this morning, and we’re convinced she’ll be a lap dog forever too. At least we’re not the only ones!

  2. Rowan will forever be a lapdog. If ever she cannot climb into your lap you will lift her there. She will always be close to your heart. Thanks for dropping by to read our blog!

  3. So, Cliff is the one who started this lap dog thing?

  4. We will let him shoulder the blame. 🙂

  5. Ah HA! The lap dog origin! I thought I was crazy! Winchester believes he is a chihuahua! All 50 LBS of him!

  6. I think most Weims believe they are lap dogs and will make every attempt to prove their point! If they could crawl under your skin they would
