OwyheeStar Week Twenty-One 2016

 Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon

IMG_0379.JPGOur summer-like weather has turned fickle. A sweeping low-pressure system has stirred things up. Temps are twenty degrees below the norm. In the mountains, there are snow storms, and we have gotten the rain. Our hay awaits a reprieve to be cut, baled, stacked, and hopefully sold. Nonetheless, there are windows of the sunshine in between the craziness. This storm will pass, and we will get back to the late spring and early summer hotter temps. 

Pups are keeping up busy. That is where we are focused. As you might guess, there are things that require attention. Sometimes this seems to be around the clock type of demands. Regardless, they are a joy.

This Week on the Blog

Boot's Bentley-3The Sunday blog talked about a Longhair referral. A goodly number of our clients come via referral or return to us for a second pup. We truly appreciate the loyalty. Wednesday’s blog was taken from someone other than the typical OwyheeStar client. We simply cannot always help every person that writes us; however, this seemed an excellent opportunity to help one person and prevent others from slipping into a situation best avoided. The Friday blog featured the adorable account of Bentley and his family life.

Here are the week’s posts if you wish you review or visit them today!

Product Review

Buffalo on Kibble-4This blog is not the only OwyheeStar blog. It is the only daily blog. There is a somewhat different blog located on our Primary Website–www.OwyheeStar.com. We are doing a once a month product review for www.Chewy.com. Our recent report on the Wild Calling canned food is worth the read. We have used a lot of various wet foods. Some canned food looked better in the can. Nevertheless; none has smelled better or been more widely received. The girls sampling this mixed in their usual kibble made it clear they approved. To better access the value of this particular food we opened a different, very high-quality brand. It had the large chunks of food. Neither Weim cleaned it up, nor did they seem happy to see the previously used canned food. Once they were presented with the Wild Calling, it was evident–they preferred to stick with it. Check out our Wild Calling Product Review.

On a very personal note

We went from moving to still moving things. It doesn’t sound much different, but it is a lot different. OwyheeStar May 2016Friday, Cliff, and Deven moved a portable building. It needs a new roof and siding. Regardless, we can make good use of this building. It was a three step process to get this building located close to where it will end up. There are still things that have to be done–updates in and around it.

The process of getting settled is going to be longer than we would like. We must continue our work and do this as the opportunity presents. We hope to add a garage and to enlarge the living room a bit. There are countless smaller projects on the list — my garden, chickens, a greenhouse, and upgrades for the Weims.

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 immensely 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

  1. Your Cliff and his helper Deven have golden hands, that was great to move a building. Fingers & paws are crossed that everything works like planned and that you can close the moving chapter with a big YES!

    • Yes, a tractor helps too. Still it takes a bit of skill to get it moved. It is sitting next to the backyard carport awaiting more attention but it is level and positioned very close to where we want it. It might stay right there.
