How It Began

This Fall Marks Two Years

Meet Up Beginning

Here is the photo captured for Cliff and Shela

Two years ago this fall Holly (unknowingly) arranged an event that would lead to our monthly play dates. Holly & her Mother (who is a professional pet photographer) set out to get as many Owyheestar Weims together to take a Christmas photo for Shela and Cliff.

It was amazing and those of us who came had to have more, to see that many Weims in one place! I would never have dreamed it would grow to what it is now, we had 24 Weims at one of our events!
Some of talked about getting together again, a few months later Holly invited someone to her mother’s house to play. I not only invited myself to go but offered to host as well as arrange a meal to share; thus the monthly play date was born!

One Crazy December

From that day forward we’ve only missed one month (December, due to crazy schedules!). Some times we do Saturday, sometimes Sunday, we always share food and there are several friendships that have formed that extend well beyond the play dates.

Support, Sharing, and So Much More

We’ve lost some dogs, seen several humans go through surgeries or illness, used each other as sounding boards and support. The family that we have formed through the Weimaraner breed is priceless. Our family very open and welcoming, we all come from very different beliefs and backgrounds but we all have Weims in common and that has been enough to support our family!

Play Date turned Camp Out!

         ~August 26 – 27th

If anyone is too far out of the Salem area, you are always welcome to crash at our house.
This month we are trying something different, we are hosting a camp out–Saturday, August 26  to Sunday the 27th. We will be BBQ-ing, roasting marshmallows & hopefully, someone will bring a guitar & will lead us in song! Bill will make his famous waffles for breakfast!

You are Invited to Join in the Fun

What can we say? We cherish the photo–all but one of those Weims originated from OwyheeStar. We have been privy to other photos and stories. There have been connections made and Weimlovers helping Weimlovers. Isn’t that grand? Thank you, every one who has graciously remembered us in any way. We truly appreciate the recommendations, referrals, and your endorsements.

  1. Hi there! That would be my beautiful girl, Gracee. She came to me from West End Kennels in 2008 and has been the most amazing gift of my life. I’m lucky to have met Holly and love being a part of this great group. She loves wearing sweaters in the winter and she was smiling when I put the scarf on her. I attached a couple of photos that capture her big personality. Have a great day! Abbi Rath

    • That’s right! She’s the pretty grey but the tree with the scarf! I could remember Jax and Luna on the couch with Santa, then Mazie in the middle & Goldie on the left, But I had forgotten Gracee’s name! I hope you can make it to a playdate!

  2. So do they all just automatically get along because they know they are weims??? Just really curious. I wished I lived near you all, that sounds like a blast!!

    • Feel free to write Nancy because I cannot say for sure.

    • They sort of do, I think that dogs of the same breed have a lot in common (the way they play, communicate, even common instinctive traits) so they understand each other. We’ve seen some displays of dominance, but nothing serious & no one has been hurt. The dogs that come more than once start getting excited it the car long before they get here, I love seeing that the dogs love coming as much as the humans do 🙂

  3. Don Dean here deleted your address and phone for texting (sorry) so e-mailing to find out address again and what time festivities begin this Saturday? We will bring Mr. Blue!! >
