Hello From OwyheeStar
~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners
December 5, 2020
A few days of untimely record-setting cold happened last month, and then we had what some would call a bit of an Indian Summer. The weather here in the Treasure Valley has settled into a typical winter. We await news as to whether it will be a White Christmas or not. I think everyone is holding their breath and hoping for a bit of magic during the Holiday Season.
We planned for a Winter litter, and they arrived just after the Fall 2020 pups departed. So, we are back at it. It is a smaller litter of five puppies–all smooth coats.
We also were finishing up the last litter business. Cliff got the information report to AKC, and hopefully, folks took the time to complete the transfer. More importantly, we hope everyone has registered their microchip.
This Week On the Blog…
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). We are always in need of OwyheeStar stories to share. It helps when I get an email even if you send photos via another mode.

On a very personal note
We spent the week trying to wrap of loose ends — as well as trying to catch our breath. Cliff is still working on the Jeeps–as time permits. He is trying to get the one we bought for Christina drivable sooner rather than later. Cliff brought home the Gator, and we could not be happier–there are three farm-only vehicles to use in various ways. Along with these projects, he is promising to work on shelving. I cannot be happier to hear the news.
In other news–I received a report from the doctor regarding the recent medical procedures. The results are encouraging and yet perplexing. Thank goodness the biopsies were not cancer. The issues (esophageal spasms and coughing spells) continue without knowing the cause. I continue to improve at a snail’s pace–but we cannot be sure what that means. Anyone who has spoken to me on the phone knows what I mean–it often flares up during a conversation, also when I eat, or if I work too hard. Goodness–getting older has nothing to do with this, right? It is craziness.
We took the opportunity to experiment with candy in Ambrosia–she turned out some lovely fluff. We also did a tray of tootsie rolls–Cliff’s favorite. This week I received two parcels –both containing the beautiful Weimaraner Mug that is available at some Fred Meyer stores. I would pick up another if it were possible–but I am not going into the crowds. I genuinely appreciate these Weimlovers who did this lovely thing for me.
