OwyheeStar Week Three 2016

Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon

The doting Sadie nurses her ten babies!

The Western Treasure Valley has the promised blanket of snow. It is a lovely scene; however, we felt you might prefer this photo. Yesterday’s photo was too cute to pass up. Typically, this litter does not pile on their Mom at once. Usually, you will see some on one bed and others with their mother. They seem to change off–it most likely works best. It was funny to watch them switch off. We used one small bed and another larger bed that morning. You can see a piece of the large bed located to the right. Sadie opted to use the tiny bed. 

Promises Made

Promises made mean each pup will soon meet their forever family. Therefore; current availability for this litter is zero. Nevertheless, on occasion something can go awry.  So, we welcome inquiries. The next most asked question is when will have another litter. We really cannot be certain. The explanation (as to why) is lengthy. You will just have to trust the short answer. We have not got a clue–if we did have, it would be unwise to get hopes up until we are positive. Being a Weimar parent in waiting is tough. Ask anyone who has waited. It is agonizing watching the process to unfold. First, there is the waiting for the potential pup to be born. Then there is waiting to find out which one is yours. Even once you know, there is further delay. The puppy must complete the necessary in-litter socialization. An early departure is not possible.

OwyheeStar Folk

We have the most extraordinary Weimaraner homes. These folks are patient. They work with us and often go to extreme measures to make things easier on us. We cannot say enough about what this means. Thank you, to all our Weimaraner fans, clients, and the faithful.

This Week on the Blog

For 2016, we have a theme going–a plan to keep us on track. It may or may not work. Keeping our blog post fun and light on Sunday is something we hope to continue. People seem to like these short Sunday morning posts. Other than that we will be writing an informational post for Friday’s blog, and posting updates or stores as it is possible between Sunday and Friday. The Saturday Synopsis (like what you see here), has a personal flare. We comment on the local news, weather, and what is going on at OwyheeStar. In addition, we include these easy to access links for the once-a-week-reader, or for the person who wants to review something or pick up something they missed. The more personal news or comments are below this section. So many of you have been our friends over the years. Thank you for that. We like to keep you in the loop as it is possible. Here are those links from this week’s blog posts:

Sunday—January 10 — Skeeter Improved

Monday — January 11 — Winston & Bennett

Tuesday — January 12 — Hemi, Magnum, and Zoey

Wednesday — January 13 — Kula & Pilikia

Thursday  — January 14 — Osha

Friday  — January 15 — OwyheeStar’s Succeeding with the Weimaraner.2

On a very personal note

We are doing well. Two of Shela’s classmates have passed on suddenly. Both since the New Year began. Yes, we realize we are not young; however, both were not expecting to check out. Mike had overcome Stage IV Melanoma. He was doing fabulous and was making plans to marry soon. A sudden heart attack took him quickly on Thursday. Rosemary died in her sleep. She had been well but was called home in a blink of the eye. It is a grave reminder that our days are numbered. One never knows what will happen next.

These two beautiful people were of the kindest order. They always had the time to bless everyone. Rosemary was sweet, caring, and devoted to her family and children, etc. Mike was too; however, he was the guy who has never met a stranger. When you ran into Mike in a store, you would feel as if you were his best friend in high school. That is a quality and gift we do not all possess. He was an amazing person, and he is going to be missed by so many–none less than his immediate family. He was in an excellent place on every level. He was happy and feeling life had much to offer. We should all live like him.

As Always

(Note–thank you to all of you who continue to send us updates. There is a lot to be learned from other Weimlovers; it puts a smile on our faces too!)

There is no way we could ever thank you enough for your love and support. We are especially grateful for those who continually provide us with the material for the blog. Unfortunately, sometimes this is only photos and no script. There is no end in sight of our farmhouse remodel. We are doing it ourselves, and it is the installment plan–we are not borrowing to do this. We buy something and install it. Therefore, having the updates is greatly appreciated than usual–it is always a blessing! DSC_0134edit
