Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
Where has the year gone? It seems like it was a year of loss for many folks. Despite the sad moments, we sincerely hope this year knew more joy. We had our white Christmas. The white frozen exterior is beautiful but slick. With the very cold temperatures, we can assume the frozen snow will be with us for awhile.
We are looking toward January 2017. Imagine all those folks that have been sitting on the Wait List with their dream on hold. Some of them wait because of timing. Preferences (coat color, coat length, sex, and other specific details) factor into the availability. With the New Year, that spark of knowing that something is coming soon will grow and take on a life of its own. We look forward to sharing some exciting moments with you whether you are getting a puppy, have an OwyheeStar or you are just a fan of the breed.

On a very personal note
Cliff has been fighting the cold weather battle. That takes a certain amount of energy in and of itself. This is our first winter in the farmhouse. We are learning how to make things work. There are many projects (big and small) left to complete. Some will eventually make the house warmer. It is important to discover the places that need our attention.
I am still fighting bronchitis. I have used every remedy, and it is one day at a time. I have to spend an immense about of effort keeping it managed. I suppose my greatest concern would be to catch the flu bug. So many of you describe it as horrendous. If you can understand, I don’t need that right now. I am trying to limit my potential exposure and work on ridding myself of this exhausting cough. The night is the worst. It means getting up several times a night. There is not much else I can say about it. I have used modern and old time remedies with mixed results.
Thanks to You
There is no way we could ever thank you enough for your love and support. We are in need of a few stories to get through the December blogging. Several of you have promised; however, we understand how busy you might be–nevertheless if you can send along something we would greatly appreciate it.
