Hello From OwyheeStar
~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners
July 4, 2020
Happy 4th of July. I am going to be honest here–I am holding my breath. With news of protests scheduled, I am concerned about the potential for these events to turn ugly. I sincerely hope we don’t read about more damage and loss of lives.
Looking around, to us, it seems the crops are a little behind what we would expect. Overall, the day seems lovely and holds promise, but it won’t be the same for most of us.
We have Bernie’s last litter–this is it. I cannot tell you how wonderful she is on every level. She is the best ever Mama and such a happy camper to have around. From here on out, we are looking to have her spayed–Cliff is counting on hunting with her. Of course, he never takes her to the field (or even around the farm) without the GPS collar. She is a hunting fool and can take off chasing a scent–go missing. Then we look and search, and wait for her to come home. So–she must wear the collar.
If you recently got an OwyheeStar puppy, we sincerely hope that you registered your microchip with AKC Reunite–this is cheap insurance.

On a very personal note
We are busy keeping things weeded, wet, and the lawn mowed. Cliff has his birds plus the Weimaraners. The quail have been harder to keep alive this year. He says they are doing better.
With the COVID numbers on the rise in Malheur County, we find ourselves on the Governor’s Watch List. That could mean she would put us back on tight lockdown if the trend continues. Cliff and I are hunkering down and staying home as much as possible. We all know about the controversy surrounding masks–but my biggest concern is how this is dividing us. That is all I am going to say about the issue other than to say united we stand.
I picked a small cucumber from the garden last evening and washed it off–ate it. It was lovely. I thought about the Great Granddaughters and how they love cucumbers. It was a good memory. I miss seeing them–life and COVID have been brutal on family this year. That goes for the biological family too.
