Hello From OwyheeStar

~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners

Sunrise October 21 2017

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.

This Week On the Blog…

As always, thanks to our faithful OwyheeStar contributors–they make this all possible. We sincerely hope our readers enjoyed these updates as much as we did, too. This week we find our supply of material running lower than it has for some time. Who can guess what might come in our inbox?

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).

Sunday— June 28 — Bisbee

Monday–- June 29 — Wilson

Tuesday – June 30— Ellie

Wednesday — July 1  Sky Raisin Patrol

Thursday –- July 2 — Nixon

Friday — July 3 — Tallyn at Five

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.

  1. I just love this daily email / blog. It makes me smile and I look forward to it every day. I greatly appreciate all the time and effort you put into the stories, personal notes & pictures, both the real pictures and the emoji pictures! I hope you, Cliff & the Weims had a wonderful 4th of a July! Sincerely, Sonya L. P. S. – although I have never bought a Weim from you, I joined your blog several years back in hopes to one day have the privilege and honor of having one of your pups join our family. With our current Blue Weim turning 8 years old on July 14th, I continue to think about adding another at some point and going through the qualification/ application, deposit process to join the wait list which I understand has grown in length. Fingers crossed for one day, when the timing is right as we aren’t in any rear rush. 🙂 Thanks again for all you do. You are one in a million!

  2. We are happy you enjoy the daily blog. When I first started the idea (many years ago), I wasn’t too sure I could keep it going. But thanks to our wonderful Weim community–we get enough information to stay afloat. Sometimes the material gets thin, but ……. We look forward to working with you when you are ready. Allow about six months. While the list has grown, you never know what will be born and what people will do. Sometimes people at the bottom of the list get a puppy. Right now–most everyone wants a Blue pup–so, it is going to be a longer wait to get a blue. We used to have a couple Homogyzous Blues –that produced all blue pups. That was very nice–but none of our Weims are Homogyzous as far as we know. We recently tested a girl –from the former lineage. She came back clear. Anyhow –thanks for enjoying our blog and the kind words.
