The Summer of 2014

Greetings from Beorn’s Family!

I hope the summer has been a fun and fulfilling time for everyone at Owyheestar! It’s been a busy and eventful summer for us.

We celebrated Beorn’s 2nd birthday this past weekend. He has really loved being on the water this summer, so we took him out for a kayak trip for his party. Beorn’s favorite place on the boat is on the front so he  an see everything that’s going on. Other passers-by are usually shocked, thrilled, and elated at this regal post. We’ve stopped our paddling a few times to pose for photo ops!Beorn Summer 2014-8

Being on the water has been an important task for Beorn in exercising patience. There are times when he just gets too excited about bubbles, ducks, or getting into Alex’s boat, that he’ll jump off into the water with no fear. He is always wearing life jacket, but his swimming is much improved this year. His instincts to track and point at birds, otters, and other wildlife are very sharp, even though we’ve never fostered this or actually do any hunting.

Mostly, Beorn loves being with his family. When Alex and I are on seperate boats Beorn can get a little anxious about who’s boat to be on. As long as he can see everyone he’s ok.

He is a wonderful greeter when I get home from work after a long 12 hour day. I will be transfering to a clinic closer to home soon, so my days will be getting shorter! Beorn is like a timekeeper for us. He will sit at the window and wait when he knows it’s time for me ro be there. He does the same for the kids when they are on their school schedule!  One smart cookie 🙂

We are still running, but we took a break for about two months due to an injury I sustained. Beorn still needed his running time so he became an expert at fetch and playing tag with the kids at the neighborhood park. We are back to running about three days a week, 7-10 miles total. Beorn is at his happiest when running. He enjoys nature and stopping to smell all the smells. He is way faster than I’ll ever be. This is one of our activities that has helped us bond tremendously.  Running off leash can be tricky depending who else in in the woods. Beorn does great most of the time, but I’ve learned that I have to be more worried about other dogs and protecting him.

As always Beorn is a big snuggler and lover. We have enjoyed watching his personality develop over the last two years! He’s quirky, silly, sneaky, smart, and sometimes even serious. Here’s to many more years together!

Best wishes for you and your family, and every Weimlover out there…….
