Hello From OwyheeStar
~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners
March 28, 2020
COVID-19 is still the focus–staying close to home, or at home, for the most part, is the best way to prevent being exposed. Of course, it is still tricky because we do have to eat, and we need supplies. Therefore, there is some risk–no matter what.
Meanwhile, farmers are busy–out in the fresh air. There is the work of raising crops, and the livestock, too. Sunshine is good for the soul and provides vitamin D.
I just read where Vitamin D from sensible sun exposure appears essential in preventing 16 different types of cancer. In fact, optimizing your vitamin D with sun exposure may cut your risk of dying from all causes in half.
We are busy with the Spring Pups, but also with inquiries. People have more time to think about a puppy. Then too, people are looking at this as an opportunity to add a fur family now. That is great as long as they don’t end up castoff after this storm passes.
Cliff and Jacob (Christina’s brother) have been busy building some fences in the outdoor puppy yards. The work never seems to end–even when we do not have pups. Then too, Cliff raises the Bob White quail–he got his first egg yesterday. So, he will be collecting eggs to get going in his incubator.
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. We hope everyone noticed the post regarding vaccine. We hate to keep bringing up this topic, but it is a Weimaraner thing.
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).

On a very personal note
We are doing well –staying close to the home, except when we have something we must do outside the house. Unfortunately, we are going to need some groceries. It is a thing. I need to plan very carefully so that we don’t need to go into the store for another couple of weeks–just what we need to make it through.
Cliff has been doing a lot of tractor work. He finally got the John Deere running again–new batteries did the trick. Thankfully, they were under warranty. (Hurrah)
Due to the COVID-19 thing, we have not been able to help Ashley with meals –she doesn’t want to have any contact with us–even inadvertently with proper social distancing. It is a good plan as her family has become infected. So far, no one has come down sick except for Nick (Ashley’s husband), but it has meant closing their business–which is economically difficult, as you might guess.
