Sunrise October 21 2017

The wet miserable type of weather that we folks in far Eastern Oregon typically avoid has pressed in on us this week. Farmers have put their equipment away–most of them looking forward to a well-deserved break. There are always things to tend–especially if you have livestock.


It was a busy week at OwyheeStar, but unfortunately, Christina was not at her best. She missed several days, and she is struggling. (OMG) Nonetheless, Cliff and I have been busy with the business of pups. The work goes on.

We took Bettee’s litter for the wellness exam. Even little ‘Dink’ passed, but we are not accepting applications for him at this time. We are ever so happy that he is doing well–and of course, he was a rockstar at the Idaho Veterinary Hospital. Vet Tech Kendall was only one of the people who toted him around a bit. But in truth–the Longhairs are the office favorite. They love our pups, but those with extra fluff seem to capture their hearts. A couple of people there hope to one day get one from us.

Martee went along — he got his titer test. Dr. Calhoun was very impressed with him. He liked everything about this new blue boy. We are a bit later than the recommended sixteen-week titer test, but our situation was different. Martee is not out and about–so, he is not being exposed. We especially wanted to get him checked because he was not on our regular protocol–and because we got him from someone else. We learned he is not protected for the Parvo–everything else was covered. He got a Parvo only shot. We will retest him again to ensure he is immune.

This Week On the Blog…

As always, thanks to our faithful OwyheeStar contributors–they make this all possible. (Haha) We sincerely hope our readers enjoyed these updates as much as we did, too. If you have a story that you will let me share–I need at least three sentences and a decent photo. I prefer to receive it via email. (FYI–we only use stories that feature the OwyheeStar Weimaraner).

And–yes, I believe I have used nearly everything you have sent to us. So–we can use your story if you are willing to allow us to do so. Thanks to those who continue to make my life easier when it comes to the blog.

On a very personal note

Cliff is improving every day, but going without NSAIDs has been tough. His arthritis is kicking up a bit more than usual. (OMG) But overall, he is doing fabulous. He managed to get the gravel down and compact it, so we don’t have the mud out the back door. (Hurrah!)

We have been to several basketball games this week. I need to text Brad to tell him how proud we are of his effort–and his character. The latter is everything. He is making us proud–even though the team is not winning games.

I picked up a few things I made. This wonky plate has two a two-color glaze that turned out interesting–Christina tried it out with a bit of lunch one day. I have used it a couple of times, too. It kind makes me feel happy when I eat off of it — silly me.

Otherwise, Ashley and I (you know she is the other granddaughter) got haircuts this week. We love Becki at Boots to Roots in Vale, Oregon. She is simply the best on every level. The two great-granddaughters made the trip with us, and they were allowed to try on hats–of course, we had to be careful with the caps, etc.
