Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~ Feeling Like Spring
Our neighbor at the end of the road is installing a center pivot. That means a lot of extra traffic on our dead-end lane. Some crops are emerging that were planted last fall, and our alfalfa is coming on, too. There are a couple of fields not worked up (still sporting last year’s cornstalks), and we are guessing they must be going to plant beans. They or potatoes go in a bit later.
We are still awaiting pups –but it is looking promising. Winnie was mated to Manfred, and we expect a mixed litter–with some Longhairs.
This mating is a repeat, and we are looking forward to the pup’s arrival as much as Waitlist. Of course, she will not produce a puppy for everyone. And yes–we have also mated Juniper.
Here is a photo of the lovely Winnie–we will be creating a Web Page soon–and I am preparing everything before I leave on my upcoming trip so things will be ready when I get back.
This Week On the Blog…
I am always looking for new information to share regarding the OwyheeStar offspring.
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. I know you enjoy reading about other OwyheeStar pups–especially those related to yours.

On a very personal note
Cliff is working on the master bath. We agreed on a light-colored tile for the wall and walk-in shower. The bathroom is more than adequate for us, but certainly not spacious. We thought the lighter wall color would be the right choice. Cliff found some pine, which we hope to put on the ceiling and the upper wall, but he couldn’t get the old truck to run yesterday. We hope to get into town and pick it up soon–before it is gone. We ordered the tile as it was out of stock.
Christina and I have been working in the greenhouse. Next week we should have some decent photos. There is quite a bit to be done before we leave for Western Oregon on Easter Sunday. Yes, we are traveling to meet some of the biological relatives. It has taken quite a lot of work (and a healthy dose of good fortune) to make this trip come together. Our focus is preparing for the trip–we have quite a few things that have to be done. That includes doctor’s visits, bloodwork, and such.
You probably read that I started the chemo pill this week. So far, I am more than tolerating it and not having any undesirable side effects. I am hoping this good fortune continues.
