This Week at OwyheeStar
We say good-bye April, and Hello to May–that just about sums up this week’s calendar. We are in no hurry to move forward toward mid-2015; however, it pulls us along as if it were the engine, and us the attached container. Down the track we go, and we are shocked at the speed time is traveling. We have discovered as we get older, the engine accelerates.
The spring pups have departed for their forever homes. They all appear to be making an excellent transition. What more can we hope than to get the ideal opportunity for each pup to thrive? We cannot thank every invested person, family member, or contributor enough. There are so many photos, and updates. Thank you for the celebration, and for sharing some of it with us. We chose this photo of Michael and Kula to represent a small portion of what has transpired. They are pictured here; what could be more apropos? Well maybe a girl and her pup. It is equally good.
There are those of you waiting, and hoping we can produce your next family member. Most (of you) want them to arrive sooner, rather than later. As soon as the spring pups arrived, and it was clear we were short on silver-gray, and gray pups, the question came flying our direction. When will you have another litter? It is a million-dollar question, which cannot be easily answered. If you are waiting for a silver gray, or gray pup, we may have one born this summer. They would most likely be ready either late August, or early September. That is an educated guess. Not every mating produces a litter. Who can guess the number of pups that will be born, the sex of the pups, and in some cases the coat color? If you are on the list for a puppy, you will get news when we can speak with confidence about the topic. To guess, is never a good idea. False hope can lead to discouragement. Hang in there; we have not forgotten you if you are on the waiting list.

On a very personal note……
Cliff and I think you know the challenges we have been facing. We have been transparent, because to not be so, would lead you to think we were disengaged. Nothing could be farther from the truth; however, we are limited. Cliff is very busy with the farmhouse remodel, farming, dog training, and preparing for the spring hunt test. I (Shela) am packing, cleaning, and doing all the things I normally do to keep OwyheeStar interaction on track. That being said, I am less able to be so instant. My left arm still swells, and needs a lot of rest to be able to do the minimum. We thank you for your patience, and understanding.
Richard is our first born–a son, who has his own construction business. He can do it all–tiling, finish work, and he has built a couple of homes (from the ground up) before the economic downturn. He could pretty-much tackle any remodel, or repair project that comes his direction. He is helping Cliff with the farmhouse remodel. He has built the new kitchen cabinet boxes, and they are sitting in the kitchen area. It is exciting; it is challenging. When this project is done, it will be a much simpler living situation. We have a long way to go, but we are hoping to get the basic overhaul done before summer’s end.
Thank you for your love and support. Keep the puppy updates coming–we will use everything we can. Then too, I need them for inspiration, and they brighten our day. A big part of healing, and health is from our connections, and outlook. How could news not brighten our day? Well, there is the downside; some of these wonderful creatures pass over the rainbow bridge. There is no avoiding. Despite that fact, there are so many pluses. Thank you for celebrating the Weimaraner with us.
