Cliff will attend the Treasure Valley Chapter North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (TV NAVHDA) annual meeting. They will discuss the upcoming hunt tests for 2014–spring, and fall. It is important to make these events for so many reasons. Other than that, we have the usual must-do things on the home front. We are hoping for sunshine, and earth-warming weather to let the trapped moisture seep into the ground. The January mud is not all that pleasant. This is never truer when it is combined with things like freezing rain, and patchy snow. It makes for a lovely (and yes that is sarcastic) cleaning situation. It makes things harder than usual.
We had sunshine of a different kind, for the most part. Since the skies gave us gray, and the ground was much the same, we look toward some of more heart-warming moments for inspiration. Ruger (formerly known as Brewser) joining his awesome family is certainly the high-point. When his family had a last-minute unexpected monumental crisis, we were concerned. Duchess’s pups had been promised for some time. Everyone was anxiously awaiting the departure, including his family. Then, the news came right at departure time. The story ended perfect for him (and all concerned). This is Wes and Hollee’s third OwyheeStar. Their first Owyhee Weim (sadly) departed this earth some time ago. When we met this lovely family, they were already infected with the Weimaraner bug; however, over the years, we have gotten to know them a bit better. Ruger has found a great family. Some of you have followed the posts on Facebook. He slid (very nicely) into their family, and home adjusting easily into their lives. Who wouldn’t? We cannot thank this loyal family enough. We have been blessed to meet some of the greatest folks on the face of the earth. There is nothing sarcastic in that comment. These are the moments that can brighten oppressive gray skies. (This morning) We can see pink amidst the clouds. We are hoping for a lot of sunshine, but one thing is for sure. Our hearts are warmed by your comments, updates, and continued support. Thank you, one and all!
