This Week at OwyheeStar
Greetings From OwyheeStar
We have had a great week. We trust it has been the same for you. Thank you for tuning in despite your busy summer schedule. Who doesn’t have their summer jammed with fun activities? The county fair, the rodeo, camping, family reunions, and the occasional escape from the homefront to mention a few. All of this activity makes for a lot of craziness as well as memories that last a lifetime. Our summer at OwyheeStar is going to be homebound almost exclusively. We don’t have a garden this year. It isn’t feasible.
Our fall litter has arrived. It is a mixed litter with the traditional smooth coats as well as three longhairs. The only ones we don’t have promised are a couple of the longhairs. We are positive we will be getting inquiries before too long.
For those not familiar with the Longhair Weimaraner, it is sometimes called the other Weimaraner. No, they are not a new thing. The world at large has known about them for some time, and in Germany one in three Weims born is the longhair variety. Nearly every country (except the US) even allows them to compete in the Show Ring. Canada, Mexico, and Brazil all recognize the Longhair Weimaraner. As you can see they are known in the Americas but so uncommon in America few folks have seen one.
The two-week old gray ghost babies pictured here (one Longhair and one a traditional smooth coat) are starting to look their part. At birth, the pups are all so similar that detecting the Longhair is difficult. For those wanting to see a few photos of the Longhairs we suggest you click here.

On a very personal note
Cliff has been busy with the farmhouse remodel. We are on the installment plan. We buy a board and install it so to speak. The hardwood floor is done in part. Yesterday, they got as far as the master bedroom closet. We probably don’t have enough material to finish the closet. I hope we can get that soon. Once the closet is finished, I can put our winter clothing in there.
As for me (Shela) I am struggling with the effects of the heat on my arm. It had its first bout with heat-induced swelling. Since then, I have been trying what I can to get it back to close to normal. Typing exacerbates the problem. Although there is a way to voice text, I find it difficult to write from the heart in this mode. It is not something that I can delegate either. It is hard to explain, but some of what I bring to OwyheeStar is heart to print. So, those personalized replies take a toll, but we feel as much as possible they must continue. You who have benefitted will understand. Nonetheless, I am doing everything possible. The experts say I am doing a lot better than expected. The hardest thing is all the post-cancer appointments that are necessary to keep me going.
Thank you for your love and support. Keep the puppy updates coming–as I said above, I am running low on material. I need them for inspiration, and they brighten our day. Yes, and allow us to have something to share.
