Breeder Comment

It is with a sad heart we tender this note regarding Jake’s passing. No matter how many years we are afforded it will never be enough. I think we can agree on that fact. It seems like yesterday he departed OwyheeStar for Washington State. Like so many Weims, we remember a few antics and the story of how he became a dogged retriever—after he initially was not interested in playing fetch. (Pun intended!) Then the news arrived. He would be relocating with his family to New Zealand. Our son had married a New Zealander. We had a fair idea of the distance from the Pacific NW to his new home. He had to endure the trip plus quarantine. We were so relieved he arrived safely and adjusted to his new life. Over the years we have exchanged a few notes back and forth. Thank you, for staying in touch. While we most certainly are sad to learn that he has passed over the rainbow bridge, we are happy to know he was much loved as well as a cherished family member.

Hi Shela – Jake passed this evening with us at home in Tauranga, New Zealand. I believe he was one of Storm’s puppies?? He was the most awesome dog ever and I’d just like to say thanks for more than 13 wonderful years–June 26, 2018

Breeder Note

Jake (Storm X Zeke)–Stormy had litters sired by three different sires over a period of a few years–Dusty, Zee, and Zeke. I don’t have to even look up the sire because Jake was born prior to Dusty and Zee Era. We have a little information on Zeke (including a couple of photos)–click here. Stormy was infamous–especially because she was our first Blue Weimaraner–click here!
