This Week’s OwyheeStar News

June is preparing,

         to wrap up its 2014 business…….Stackhouse Swimming (2)

We will wave good-bye to June this coming Monday, after saying hello to summer at the end of last week. There will reports of folks floating the Boise River, and a lot of swimming going on. The heat will (surely) arrive in full-force.

Extreme heat is often directly followed by the violent ripping thunderstorms. Toad-strangling downpours, hail, and dry lightening sparked range fires are some of the things that can happen during such an event. The storms are fun to watch, as long as they don’t shred or burn something close to your heart.

This week’s blog had a theme–the swimming Weimaraner. People have told us all kinds of stories about their Weim, and the water-work. These stories have ranged from the surprise swim, to the person who threw their Weim over the side of the boat. The latter is not something we can endorse. Yes, the tossed-in-the-water Weimaraner may swim to save his or her life; however, it may well ingrain the fear of water making the voluntary swim impossible. Employing knack, patience, follow-through, and fun water’s edge games will take your further. Cliff believes wholeheartedly in instilling the love of the retrieve, and keeping it as the focus. This one thing (along with a fun-upbeat relationship) works nearly every time people use it.

 Here are the links for this week’s blogs….

On a personal note……Jeep and ripening grain

Cliff continues irrigating–the hay and the winter wheat. The golden hue is coming to light; soon it will be time to harvest. Our neighbors will combine the wheat. Cliff will be planting alfalfa (in this field–now planted with winter wheat) once the field is prepared. The second cutting of hay is around the corner too. Those events pale in contrast to the arrival of our first great grand child–Evangeline Grace. We ( like her parents, and grandparents), wait breath-abated. A family Baby Shower is slated for later today. It should be a really fun time. Before Eve’s arrival, pups should be on the ground. It will be a busy July for sure!

As Always…

Thank you for your love and support. Keep the puppy updates coming. In the weeks ahead we can use them. We appreciate you all!


Many blessings and warm wishes from Shela and Cliff–(and the OwyheeStar Weimars too!)

~Thank you for being a part of our lives!
