Wonder

~ She is thriving and I adore her!

We love her so dearly and I want to thank you for letting me have her. As you can see, we introduced her to our bunny Henrey.

Breeder Comment

We are happy to hear that you and Wonder are doing so well–keep up the good work. As for the bunny–well, you never know how safe a small critter might be with this breed–always proceed with caution.

Mouse

~ My First Year

 Just wanted to pass along some pics of Mouse growing up this year.
He’s absolutely a joy–he’s sweet, goofy, and so so smart. 
Thank you!

We are so happy to hear things are going well. It took us quite a while to get you this Longhair boy–but the wait seems insignificant now.

Franny

~Keeping Active Together

Miss Franny is now 14 months old (12/30/2019) and is healthy and happy and thinks snow is the greatest thing EVER.

My vet says she is the perfect weight (currently 56 lbs) and she continues to thrive after that very scary incident last year – nothing to indicate it was anything more than a one time thing.  Phew. With the virus, she has become a little house protective as we get almost zero visitors, but once outside she has many dog friends and she is well adjusted.

We are very fortunate to have a large field near us and when it is not a mud mess, we meet out there regularly with 3 to up to 10 other dogs!  so much fun!!   With the field mud, we have been walking 2-3 times a day through the neighborhood averaging 6 miles a day.

Franny wears a Fi collar, and it also tracks her daily activity. She is currently in the top 100 of ALL dogs (close to 50000) who wear the collar, she is the #1 Weim, #2 of all Oregon dogs, and #1 in Hillsboro. LOL  At almost 61, I am pretty sure she will be my last puppy.  I am exhausted, but a tired dog is a good dog!!  I love this girl to the moon. She is smart and goofy and so stinking beautiful. 

Thank you Cliff and Shela – I am so grateful to have found Owyheestar!!

I am happy you put so much into your relationship. Franny is keeping you super active–not necessarily a bad thing. Thank you for loving her so much!

Zoe

~Sweet and Lovable

It’s been a long time since we have checked in and thought we better get to an update!


Zoe is such a sweet, lovable girl and I couldn’t imagine our life without her.  She sure makes days more enjoyable and nights so much warmer with her snuggles! 


Between her naps, she either loves to take a swim or run laps – it’s never a dull moment. I’m so blessed to be able to work from home now and have Zoe at my feet and pawing are my arm for attention. ❤️Yes 

Love,Courtney & Zoe (Dixie & I Boone)

Life with the Weimaraner–allows for no personal space. A foreign concept for the Weimaraner who wants your full attention 24 X 7, but then they give backs much in return. Who can define in a few words the intense unwavering dedicated, uncompromising, and unconditional love? Well, they can sulk if they get their feelings hurt.

Levi Snuggles and More

Levi is our first long hair and a typical weim as he rules the roost. He is quite the lover boy and would be perfect except for the shedding 😁

Breeder Comment

Levi has an abundance of fluff–some Longhairs have more than others. Although the Longhair does require additional grooming, they still shed nothing like the Labrador –which leaves hair on everything.

Deli

~OwyheeStar’s Special Delivery

She was approaching sixteen candles when she suddenly departed planet earth–these photos were taken during her last romp. It was Spring 2017, and what a legacy she left. Her DNA is weaved throughout the OwyheeStar lineages–what a girl she was–we are so thankful for the time we had together.

Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon

~ February Snow

Snow came to the valley floor–and in some places, they got more than we did. Cliff estimates that here at OwyheeStar, we probably got about a total of eight inches over the last week. About twelve miles east of here, our friends measured fourteen inches–and in the mountains, they have several feet accumulated. The latter is a good thing–last night, it rained, so there will be a lot of muck and mud.

AT OWYHEESTAR

Atti with her five babies not so long ago

We try to find homes for our retired females–and we have found an ideal home for Atti. She leaves this morning to travel to North Dakota, where she will live with a single woman frontline worker. Of course, she is a returning client who feels as if this is better for her than getting a puppy. It is a win-win situation.

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

It was another week focusing on things we prefer to avoid–medical treatment and me facing the Breast Cancer return. It not a huge surprise, but we hoped to avoid it forever. Since everything is converging, I cannot remember what I told you last week, but I am sure I didn’t say that my liver showed no sign of invasion. The week ahead is more of the same–Cliff is doing his Light Treatments, running me to Meridian for a Thoracentesis on Monday, and then there is a full-body bone scan on Wednesday.

I wondered if we would plant a garden–but the garden is taking shape in my heart. I have most of our seed bought, but I have a few needs. These are things I need to get coming soon. Otherwise, Cliff has been working on the master bath remodel–that doesn’t cover this remake. It was completely gutted and being revamped to the studs, you might say.

We thank everyone for your love, prayers and support.

Mia

~Two-Year Old Oregon Coast Girl

Playing Fetch

Mia is doing great she loves to play fetch and will do just about anything for the ball she is such a sweetheart but very protective of the family… You do an amazing job with this breed 

Thanks 

Chris and Bridget 

Not so long ago–we called her Shark Baby–click here to see her early start.

PS: We are wanting to start using Nuvet but not sure on what exact one to get should we get the nujoint.ds line or the nuvet plus was just curious what your thought was.. 

Breeder Comment

We are happy to hear that Mia continues to thrive–and that she loves a good game of fetch. Click here to learn more about the NuVet we recommend.

Bacchus and Bella Rae

~ Not Always Fond of Winter

Yin & Yang say not a good day, high of 10 👎I reminded them that we started at -10

Breeder Comment

Well, at least they have each other.

Bisbee

~ Olympic Class Chewer

I wanted to send you a few photos of Bisbee. He is such a handsome and comical boy. He also chews up and spits out everything in sight!  The highlights are portions of 3 handmade quilts, a retainer, a section of carpet in the middle of the room, and a small fruit tree in the yard! He is also very cuddly.

We try to get him as tired as we can which helps a lot with the chewing. Our two neighbors have a one year old Burmese mountain dog and a two year old cattle dog so we do play dates every week. He also goes to doggie daycare twice a week and hikes on the weekends. He certainly gives us a run for our money but we love him dearly. 

Breeder Commentary

Thank you for updating us on Bisbee. All we can say is habits take hold quickly with this breed, and once they do, they are nearly impossible to change. What some excuse as puppy behavior become a lifetime of this and that. (OMG) Thanks for loving him and facing the challenges.
