2018 Weekly Synopsis



The Veterinary Wellness Exam happened Tuesday. All the kids passed. (Hurrah!) We made a couple of trips to the Three Cliff’s Sanctuary– (it is located on the southeast corner of our property). I think it is a magical place–at least for our family, and wild critters. It is also fabulous for the puppies. That is something Cliff’s father and uncle didn’t imagine when they planted it for the birds.

The Great Granddaughters and both Granddaughters just happened to be there for the second adventure of the week. I did post some of these photos on Instagram. Isn’t this just grand for the puppies. It does our soul good too!

20180905_082302Stackhouse was thrilled that Boise State Football is once again a thing. He loves everything associated with the process–treats, games, and our almost undivided attention.
Beyond the Stackhouse thing, we had the fun, the heartwarming, and the excellent Rocky and Mickey news. The last two blogs of the week got the most likes and garnered several comments–ZooBoo, as Marie calls her made us all smile with her bold bath after the pooh-roll. We have all been there.

Sunday—September 2— Go Broncos (Stackhouse)

Monday–-September 3— Labor Day (Mousse Nursing)

Tuesday —September 4— Celebrating (Mesquite)

Wednesday —September 5— From Jan (About Willow)

One Year

     ~Today–August 28, 2018

Mesquite shot-shell reloader_0475Mesquite has lived in Prosser for a year today.

She has recovered nicely from the dog food debacle. Her coat is nice and full and has that slick look again. I see she is growing some longer fur around her pads, probably starting her winter coat. I hope that isn’t the sign of a cold winter to come.

She likes the Diamond Naturals dog food. She is always looking for her pan at dinner time. She has always been a good eater. My last Vizsla ate like a bird and was very picky. Everything had to be just right.

Mesquite likes to play with her stuffed animals. She is always packing one of them around in the house.

I can’t wait to get back on birds this fall. The rabbits are getting old. She enjoys her daily morning walks. She is always ready to go each morning. She just loves going in the car and doesn’t get sick anymore.

Mesquite is a real doll! Thanks again for getting her together with us! She has filled a real hole in our lives. ~ Lyle

We cannot thank you enough for loving Mesquite and giving her an excellent Golden Year Home.

Labor Day 2018


     ~ Nursing Her Babies

Some of you have been following the current litter. Updates have been posted every week. We thought an excellent way to celebrate Labor Day might be to honor Mousse’s effort at raising this litter. What can we say? It is no small thing.

They love being out in the puppy yard. Mousse doesn’t like being with them so much now–she wants to see them, and then the sharp teeth cause he to rethink that desire. Nonetheless, she does nurse. What a good Mama. They are eating kibble, drinking from the waterer, and growing every day.

A mother’s labor of love is something to be celebrated, too! Happy Labor Day!

2018 Weekly Synopsis



Well if you follow us, then you know that Rocky and Mickey needed a new home. Kirsten ended up being the person to adopt them. She already lives with an OwyheeStar (Desi), but now the Weim-factor has tripled. We were able to help facilitate this move. I will be posting an update this week–you probably saw the news online. We are indeed happy for all concerned.

IMG_1387I thank everyone for once again coming through for us. (Whew) It was fabulous not to have to worry about what to write frantically.
Only on Friday, when we talked about Dusty did it require a bit more. I have wanted to feature him for a while. It seemed like an excellent time to talk about some of the recent food issues. A lot is going on with the pet food industry–please take heed, and watch the ingredient list. It can change without notice and raise havoc with the Weimaraner’s sensitive gut, and leave to other issues, too.

The Question

    ~The Look Says It AllYou are late Mama! Where have you Been?

1. Where Have You Been?

2. Why Are You Late?

3. We see the clock–lady.

Breeder Comment

Our Weimaraner can tell time–well, to them ten minutes maybe means nothing. But know when it is bedtime to the minute is a science.

2018 Weekly Synopsis


We continue to be engaged with the current litter. It is; however, not the only thing we have going. Today, Cliff is at the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) hunt test. The Treasure Valley NAVHDA is the host club, and the test runs for three days (Friday-Sunday). We dropped by during the Utility Portion, and the atmosphere was thick with tension–training for this event requires a lot. Getting here and putting everything on the line is sometimes touch-and-go. Sure you prepared. Your Versatile Hunting Companion can do it all, but will the conditions be favorable. Will the dog perform to the best of their ability. Ah shucks–Cliff is taking a Weimaraner. What do we know about this breed? Anything can happen. I hope for the best–even a little miracle.

2018 Weekly Synopsis


We have the litter of pups–it and all the things that go with this situation are keeping us insanely busy. (Haha) It is all good, even when it requires our attention. Our little helpers were back. What a blessing! IMG_1217

This Week on the Blog

Another week–summer, when folks are extra busy. I see some of you making Facebook posts that include your OwyheeStar. Thanks for doing all you do for the Weimaraner you acquired from us. We truly appreciate it. If any of you feel as if you could drop us a paragraph and a photo, it would be a great help.

AKC Reunite

The Essential Microchip 

2fb0aa3b-2580-468e-ba78-442d867187ceOur OwyheeStar puppies are microchipped before they leave for their new forever home. We use the unparallelled AKC Reunite Microchip. It is; however, essential to register the microchip — to ensure you are listed as the Weimaraner’s owner.

We all know who really owns whom. Nevertheless, should Weimar become separated or misplaced, that number will reunite you more quickly. It is scary as unthinkable to find yourself wondering where they are and if you will get them back. Be sure you have registered the microchip with AKC Reunite –it is not enough to have it on file with your Veterinary office.


Dear OwyheeStar Client–we hope you registered your pup’s AKC Reunite Microchip. And a little something to sweeten the post…..

2018 Weekly Synopsis


We are busy keeping everyone safe from the heat. Runs outside are short for the most part–except in the morning. They can be a bit longer late evening too. No one can endure these high temperatures. Everyone has to be inside once the temperatures rise close to one-hundred degrees. No one cares about spending time napping on such a day.

This Week on the Blog

Well, another week and thanks to a few fabulous OwyheeStar faithful, we had material to post. Cliff and I send you folks a heartfelt thanks! I won’t elaborate on these posts other than to say they were widely varied. I think that makes for interesting reading. I hope you agree.

2018 Weekly Synopsis



We welcomed some tiny babies to the world this week. I am in the process of trying to connect with the folks on the Wait List. This takes a bit of time–even more when it is summer. I have some website work to fill in the gaps along with the announcement we made a few days ago.

This Week on the Blog
