AT The Dog Park in Livermore, California
Like so many of you, we managed to add Frank to our family during the pandemic. Frank is ours, and you might remember we have been featured several times here on the OwyheeStar Blog. We met Cliff and Shela in Burns, Oregon, where we picked up Frank, Bo, and Lola. We agreed to transport the two extra pups because of the pandemic situation. It was a little crowded in our camper, but we managed to make it work. The plan at been to meet up again in the future. We recently had our reunion. We met at a dog park in Livermore, California.
It went pretty well–Frank declared it great fun. Lola had never been to a dog park before, so she was shy but warmed up to the idea. Bo is not good off-leash, but he had a good time even so. It was great to get together.
Thank you, Ben for sharing the photos and the news about this went.
May 8, 2021 Play Date in California
Today brothers from another mother got to meet! Earl Grey on the left (Clover X Boone February 2020) and Archer (Bernie X Boone June 2020) had a great time playing together. Earl is bigger but Asher is faster. Both are gorgeous OwyheeStar Weims!
More and more OwyheeStar folks are making a connection and planning meets. It is a fabulous connection. Thanks for the share.
~ Malheur County
There is a strong breeze–about 10 MPH, and the wind has been a factor recently. Most of us are weary of it by now. The other thing we are tired of is being on Lockdown–Malheur County moved to more restrictions again. I have heard that we are the least compliant with vaccination and the rise in confirmed COVID cases.
Winnie is doing well–she is such an excellent Mama. Of course, our focus is puppy socialization. Here is the number one little longhair girl enjoying her turn.
Recently On the Blog…
Our faithful readers realize I have been struggling to keep the blog going–fresh easy to post material can be challenging to come by 365 days a year. I had mentioned we would post (randomly) as the material is available. I received enough material of the right kind to post every day this week. Thank you!

On a very personal note
Cliff continues working on the bathroom –some of you probably wonder if we will ever get this project done. We often wonder the same thing–and sometimes it seems to go on forever as Cliff does what he can each day. Our green accent is possibly a bit brighter than expected, but Christina and I like it–Cliff is easy to please with color. (Haha)
You may have heard that my blood work results were good across the board, and the tumor marker count has taken another significant drop. We sincerely hope the trend continues. Dr. Morgan wants to increase the Vernenio dosage to help the cause. I am tolerating it well, so that is our next step.
Cliff’s blood work was even better than mine, and they believe for now they have his situation managed. Of course, we finished the week with a visit from Ashley and the three great-grand babies. What a joy it was to spend time together.
Hi there, we are loving our gray male Weim Ghost. He is a few days before his six month birthday and getting so feisty with hormones and wanting to hump on anyone sitting down. Wanted to make an appointment to get him neutered in the next few weeks, but I have read many conflicting pieces of advice on waiting and good bone and joint health.
He is a very sweet guy but is very excited and not himself lately, wondering if we should wait two or three months for this time or just go ahead and get the surgery.He is a loyal family friend, just a bit out of control for last 3-4 weeks.Adding some photos, especially a few in some group walks with his doggie buddies.
We suggest moving ahead with the neuter, given the saucy attitude. It is essential to have the Weimaraner under control–and doing whatever it takes to master the situation.
Mesquite enjoying a warm Springtime day, while I am mowing the lawn. She still likes going on her daily morning walks of 2 plus miles. Mesquite is still in good health, with plenty of get up and go! Thanks for making it possible for her, to share her golden years with us.
One of the best decisions ever was to allow Mesquite to join your family. Thank you for all you do for and with her and for keeping us apprised.

Every morning with Maizie is snuggle time. Her crate is in our bedroom. Every morning when she wakes up, she comes to our bed and drapes her front paws over my sleeping or almost-awake body to say “Good Morning.” Before we all begin our day, we have lots of petting, love and snuggles—complete with Maizie silliness and her morning Weim talk! A lovely way for each of us to begin our every day.
We celebrate every day you have together. Thanks for this lovely picture and a visual snapshot of her morning with you. I am sure many others will enjoy this–thank you!
