GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON

At OWYHEESTAR

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.

Tuesday —September 4— Celebrating (Mesquite)

GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON

At OWYHEESTAR

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.

2018 Weekly Synopsis

AT OWYHEESTAR

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.

This Week on the Blog

Another week–once again, I thank everyone who helped me make this possible. We are thrilled to read about Henry’s continued success with the Nose Work. You other who are celebrating several years, thanks for remembering us. We (and the readers) love hearing about your life.

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.

2018 Weekly Synopsis

AT OWYHEESTAR

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.

Sunday— August 5 — The Boys (Luke and Coop)

Monday–- August 6 — Reunions (Jorja and Eileen)

Tuesday — August 7 — Not Peas in a Pod (Bodhi and Murray)

Wednesday — August 8 — Winchester

GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON

AT OWYHEESTAR

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

Well, several of you lovely folks came through with an Emailed update. I cannot thank you enough. Yes, I am already running beyond thin on material. Nonetheless, you made my life easier for a moment. (Haha) I think you readers can agree, the updates were fun and appreciated.

Sunday— July 29 — Shared Status (Manfred and Stackhouse)

Monday–- July 30 — Milly

Tuesday — July 31 — News (Tikka and Luna)

Wednesday — August 1 — About the Second Longhair (Murray)

GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON

AT OWYHEESTAR

We continue to process applications. We all wait together for the news. The question remains, when will we get a puppy–that meets the family’s specific criteria? That is always the question. So, we wait and hope for Fall or Early Winter pups to arrive. Predictions are fickle. Even when a female is mated, she may well produce nothing. (OMG) We most certainly hope to beat those odds. Nonetheless, we are in a Waiting Game and sit here breath-abated along with those on the Wait List for which we have no particulars to share.

Meanwhile, the business of raising Manfred continues. There are the walks and adventures. He is growing like a weed. (Haha)

This Week on the Blog

We began with a lovely bit of news (and equally beautiful photo) of Macey. Then, we had a little more about Jake who moved from the Pacific Northwest to New Zealand some time ago. It warms our heart to know that Jake thrived in his forever family. Of course, there is the much-celebrated news of Jorja’s return to the Pacific Northwest. Arleen and Arliss royally welcomed Eileen and Jorja. Smokey is yet another fabulous story–the much-loved longhair. It is entirely possible his primary business in life is delighting his humans. Finally, Bella Blue dropped us a cleverly written note. Her hunting ability put to good use.
Cliff and I want to thank those of you who responded to our call for a story and a photo that we can use on the blog. It is genuinely appreciated, but us and so many others.

Sunday— July 22 — In Tennesee (Our Macey)

Monday–- July 23 — Remembering (Jake of NZ)

Tuesday — July 24 — Smokey

Wednesday — July 25 — Jorja (Back in the USA)

Thursday –- July 26 — Raising (the Weimaraner litter)

Manfred Adventure at the Nielsen Farm-9Manfred arrived –the future OwyheeStar Longhair Stud Dog. It remains to be seen how this saga unfolds. We intend to have him come alongside, and eventually fill Stackhouse’s position. He is adjusting nicely. We are working on socialization.

This Week on the Blog

We were blessed with some fabulous update– even though summer is in full bloom. There was news of Mesquite (who continues to do well). Her Golden Year Placement has more than worked well, I think. We heard about the early transition for three–Indi, Bacchus, and Maelee. That is always fun to read. Of course, we had Berkley who celebrated one year. How fast they grow–time doesn’t stand still either.

Sunday— July 15 — Living the Life (Mesquite)

Monday–- July 16 — Home (with Indi)

Tuesday — July 17 — Birthday (Berkley at One)

Wednesday — July 18 — Letter (From Asher)

Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon

AT OWYHEESTAR

IMG_0787The week found our schedule was a bit more demanding than usual. We had the last Zula Blue litter depart. She found a Golden Year Placement. We could not be happier. The mostly Longhair Litter joined their respective families. Some of these folks had waited a very long time to get the Longhair. We hope to raise a few more in the future. Despite a few Weimlovers aversion to the longer coat, these are catching on. Yes, there is more grooming–and if they are a mud baby, then there is more mess. In town, with a grass yard, the additional care is not all that much. It is not anything like the Labrador. I cannot lie, though–they do take grooming. A furminator-type of brush used monthly makes a huge difference. Well, despite the extra care, people often repeat the Longhair experience once they have embraced it. Or, should I say that of the five longhair pups, three were repeating the longhair option. I think that speaks volumes.

This Week on the Blog

We had the heartbreaking news of Jake’s passing. He has lived through many experiences–including relocating from the Pacific NW to Zealand. We appreciate this family staying in touch for more than a decade. The week began with Henry posing with his ribbons–Congratulations to Henry! We had two new beginning reports–Luna and Winchester. Let’s not forget the two water work updates–Tikka on the SUP and Freya water retrieving. Keep up that water work. You are doing fabulous!

Sunday— July 1 — Henry

Monday–- July 2 — Winchester

Tuesday — July 3 — Tikka

Wednesday — July 4 — News (Re: Jake in New Zealand )

Thursday –- July 5 — Freya

Friday — July 6 — Luna

Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon

AT OWYHEESTAR

The early summer litter exit begins today. By Tuesday all the pups will be with their forever families. It is a good feeling to know they have excellent homes. The great-granddaughters will not be happy to see them gone. (Haha)

Otherwise, Cliff is busy trying to fix this and that. We need some waterlines run–not sure when he can get working on those. He had to fix another water issue to get our lawn sprinklers going. With the oppressive heat looming large it is no time to have the water delayed. (Haha) When the pups depart, I am hoping to purchase a few bits of sod to repair a few bare patches in the yard. (OMG) Have I ever said the pups are hard on the yard? Only about a gazillion times.

This Week on the Blog

Meeder's Cooper_1733We had some fun on the blog. Of course, starting with Dunkin was a treat. We moved on to look at the Longhairs which was followed by the parcel from Fellig. Not to confuse you; however, we then have two blogs in a row, both featuring a Weimaraner named Willow. Jan’s Willow was back the Show Ring winning titles and ribbons. Tony and Renee’s California Willow was testing out the kiddie pool. Speaking of pools, we ended yesterday with Cooper swimming at three months. He is an extraordinarily good swimmer. Isn’t this photo the best ever?

Sunday— July 1 — Dunkin (Ready for Bed)

Monday–- July 2 — Longhairs

Tuesday — July 3 — Surprise (Parcel from Fellig)

Wednesday — July 4 — Happy Fourth (Willow)
