Miranda

~She Sleeps In–It’s Perfect!

Miranda (Bettee × Manfred #10 pink) has settled right in and started her first training class on Wednesday (or perhaps I should say hubby and I started the first training class!). 

This puppy loves to sleep in late and then makes such a production of yawning and stretching before emerging from her kennel. I must admit I so enjoy those first 2 mugs of coffee before she starts her day! I wanted to get you photos for the blog–Jeepers, I had no idea how difficult it was to capture a photo of a stretching or yawning dog!  Here is a collage of Miranda in her wake-up routine which spans many minutes!

What a great story, and I know everyone will love these adorable photos as much as we do. So cute, this girl, and we love how well she is adapting and fitting into your household routine. Thanks!

Bisbee

~Carol Shares about the beginning

We wanted to let you know that Bisbee is doing great.  We attached a few photos for you.  He is definitely a little pistol and we love him dearly.  He plays hard and sleeps hard, even in the snow!

Thank you Carol, for this update–and for being so fabulous to work with over the last few weeks. We meet the best people–wishing you all the best.

Rayne

~ In Time Gunner will love her too!

Gunner says, “Tell me again why we need her.”

Just wanted to send you a little note.  We made safe travels home, way easier than the drive to Pendleton.   We decided to name our little girl Rayne.  She has been an absolute joy since we picked her up. 

Gunner, our 2 year old blue Weimaraner,  isn’t too fond of the little lady yet.  He had temper tantrums all the way home, even refused to sit next to her in the truck.  He’s receiving extra love and attention so he knows he’s still very much loved.  His feelings about her are improving,  but still needs some work.  We absolutely love both of these dogs.  Thank you.
Cindy, Kevin, and family.

Poor Gunner, his world is turned upside down. You did right, bringing him along. Can you imagine had you shown up after being gone with her in your arms? It would not have gone well. He will soon come to the realization she is part of the family, and I suspect he will take up with her. They may even conspire together in mischievous deeds–just saying.

Training Done Right

~Luna Laundry

Here’s one of just her climbing in and enjoying my freshly dried and warm laundry when I placed it on the kitchen floor for a moment.

It is so cute to read about Luna (forever known as Dink’s sister)–and to know that your laundry gets pressed. You are off to a fabulous start.

Buddy

~Is Perfect for Us!

Thank you so much! We are so excited. I’ve wanted to get a puppy from you for about 10 years now. I’m glad you made it home safely. We’ll be home in about an hour and a half. I’m obsessed with Christmas so we are naming him Buddy (Buddy the Elf).

Cliff and I were delighted to place Buddy in your arms yesterday. It is our joy to carefully raise each pup and then to see them move on–and to begin a life with their forever families.

Play Date

~at Luna and Tikka’s

Chester and Pushkin

On Saturday mom took my to see my friends at Luna and Tikka’s house again for our play date. It was so much fun playing with my friends in the mud. Mom looked like she was pretty cold but she let me play for hours. I also got to meet my half brother Pushkin. We have the same dad! Our Mom’s say we look like twins so they kept trying to take our pictures together, but Pushkin and I decided not to  cooperate don’t they know we just want to play not sit still. Lol silly mommy’s. At the end mom gave me a new toy from the gift exchange I love it a lot and I play with it all the time. I cant wait until we get to go play again.

Special thanks to Nancy and Bill for hosting these very popular events–we are happy so many OwyheeStar clients get to participate. It was great to read about Pushkin and Winchester (Chester).

Therapy

~Who Needs a Weighted Blanket?

Imagines such as this appear across the Internet–and they speak to our heart and soul. Some might say the Weimaraner is too large for a lap dog. Ask the Weimar, and they will assure you that there is always room–if the human is willing. Well, shoot even if the human is not willing the Weimaraner can make the room.

If you are considering this breed and want to relegate them to the yard or out of the family area–we suggest you look at a different fur family member choice. The Weimaraner might be the ultimate Velcro Companion.

Whatever you are doing, the Weimaraner wants to be included–well, some will skip sharing the shower, but not everyone. Most certainly, they are the ultimate confidant keeping your secrets–and at the same time putting a paw on your weaknesses. Yes, they know how to exploit any situation. Our relationship is complex, don’t you agree?

Luna

We made it Home

It’s been 1 week Luna has been with us and things are falling into place nicely. She’s such a well mannered girl and very sweet. She’s so smart and has a great little sniffer! I’m amazed how well she retrieves. It seems to come naturally to her. She’s very happy to bring back what you’ve thrown but tug of war is her favorite! She loves her big brother and is really enjoying playing with him now that he’s accepted her as part of the pack. He understands she’s just a pup and is very gentle with her. I can’t say she’s as gentle with him though but he’s patient with her. 


Crate training is starting to take shape. I’ve introduced her several times a day to it and reward her for going in. I close the door and stay with her for about 10 min and let her settle before I walk away for 5 and incrementally increase the time away. That’s when the fireworks start. Today,  however, I needed to go into the office for a few hours and both kids were unavailable so she had to work it out. Up until this time, someone has been here around the clock. 


To my surprise and despite all my worrying, I came home to a clean crate and somewhat of a changed girl. She was certainly happy to see me as always and seemed to have an air of independence and confidence she didn’t have before. She seems more relaxed and balanced. 
We’re still working on the house training. I’m trying to figure out her habits and triggers… she does everything in 2’s and 3’s when it comes to the bathroom and she’s quick!! I might invest short term in Bounty paper towels until we’ve mastered this. 😝 When I take her out, she’s rewarded when she comes back in. She sits right at the door as I praise her and waits for her treat patiently. The goodness though is she’s  sleeping through the night with me accident free and I’m not having to get up in the middle of the night to take her out. So we’re all getting some good sleep. 
Hope all is well and things have settled a bit now that you’ve delivered many of the puppies.


Take care, Kris

We are happy to know that you not only made the trip safely to Connecticut, but the first week went well. We look forward to hearing about your adventures unfold. Thanks for your loyalty–and for making the trip.

While We Wait

~ We celebrated Christmas Weim-style

Hope your Christmas was a blessed one!  I know ours was!!
Nutz and my grandpup, Rhea, had a good one too!!


They received new speaker toys, which got destroyed by the end of the night.  For some reason, they want that sqeaker to chew on.  Heehee.  They also received some special treats, which they LOVED, and wouldn’t share.  Haha
They thought it was their job to  help us open our gifts, so of course we let them.   Who can deny a weim that pleasure? 🥰
Thank you so much for our blessed pup!  Cant wait for her sister to get here!

Lap Weims

These guys still think they are lap dogs😂

Finn Loves to play ball

I think we can safely say that the Weimaraner loves to do what you are doing, and most love to fetch. Regardless, curled up on the sofa or playing a game of toss–it is all about the relationship.
