With Our Two
~ Unique Girls
The girls are great, they are so different; I think Tikka actually thinks she’s a dog! 😂😂She will spend hours outside entertaining herself, sometimes I will lock them both outside so I can clean … Luna thinks I have totally deserted her, while Tikka doesn’t even realize she’s locked out😊 Tikka definitely has the weim stubbornness at times, but nothing we can’t work through.
My baby girl is almost as tall as I am. She’s growing like a weed, but she still thinks she’s “little”.
Crazy for Nutz
This is what my girl looks like now, beautiful and 50 pounds of puppy fun and only about 8 months old. Her name is Nutz and it fits perfectly, she is one crazy girl and she makes us happy and she brings us laughter every day. A big ball of energy and our old Wiemer wants nothing to do with her. That is Jet, she is about 12 years old and just likes going on short walks and sniffing the backyard–she was always laid back.
Nutz still wants to do what she did when she was a puppy like sit on my lap. She is a crazy girl and believes she controls the house, come to think of it, she does. Haha
And when we get another Weimar pup it is vital that they want some Chinese food because that’s where she is headed. (LOL) Here’s Nutz leading the way.
We have a long history with you folks. It is our joy to hear how much you love Nutz. We look forward to working with you once again.
~ Cute Faces
Cypress weighs 40 pounds now, she is growing like a weed! She and Willow and Daisy play and play, they get along great. I have been taking Cypress to my dog obedience classes and she is already doing well as a demo dog! I will take her to puppy classes in January at my friend Kathy’s dog training center, as I will enjoy being a “student” and socializing Cypress. She is very healthy and beautiful, I get tons of comments on her. She is still quite shy but we are working on that, and I socialize her daily, I think she will come around as she gets older. She is very bonded with me and doesn’t wander at all, she likes to stay near me which is great.
I hope you are having a wonderful week, take care, Jan~

We Could Not Be Happier!
Our boy sure is growing up fast! He’s been super healthy and we just recently had to move him out of his original wire crate, he just got so long!!He is just a specimen of the breed. His temperament, smarts and at 35 lbs is a muscular lil dynamo. All of this in an adorable/handsome package too!
Piercing and Intense
In this second picture( with my brother in law) he looks so intense, his stare is just piercing.Thank you, Shela and Cliff, for our Dasher. We are more than impressed with what you have created for us and blessed to be part of the OwyheeStar family.Thank you once again and Happy Holidays.Dave and Audrey.
Behind the Scenes
~ Luna and Me (Nancy)
The backdrop–we wanted to add another Weimaraner. I admit contacting Shela many times wanting to get our next puppy; however, behind the scenes I had some apprehension. As Shela knows, I shared with her my reluctance regarding the addition of a second weim. Of course, I kept that to myself until Tikka was safely in our home. But as the day approached and then it became a reality I worried. One significant concern I had was about the household relationships. Luna is bonded to me, and Bill wanted the next (as I did) to bond with him. Now, we faced our plight to influence who the new pup’s “person” would be.
Then There Was Tikka
We’ve had Tikka in our home for almost a month and a half. As I stated, I had two major concerns about adding Tikka to our pack. First and foremost Luna. I didn’t want to compromise or change her status or our relationship. Secondly, I wondered if and how we could we actually “make her” Bill’s dog.
~ Here is how that worked out
Luna and Tikka are awesome together! I still spend a lot of time with Luna and our relationship hasn’t changed much, she is and always will be my #1 dog and seems to know that. Tikka is learning some things just from watching Luna. This second Weimaraner learning from the first makes a lot of things easier. But we also want Tikka to be her own dog, (or person) so we ensure sure that Tikka gets to do her “own things.”
Luna is obsessed with her chuck it balls no other dogs get to play with or retrieve her balls, so every few throws Luna is put in a sit stay, and Tikka is allowed to retrieve the ball, good for both dogs! One of the first “cute tricks” we teach our dogs for treats is a sit stay. Tikka who isn’t even four months yet has a pretty decent sit stay already; I am currently working on having them sit together and releasing them individually.
Tikka and Bill are doing pretty well, things that are a habit for me (like every time I go anywhere Luna goes with me), Bill has to be reminded, but he’s learning too! He has realized how much work and patience go into raising a well-balanced puppy.
Tikka loves us both (as does Luna). Last night both dogs were asleep (On the couch!!), and Bill went outside for something; Luna didn’t bat an eye, but Tikka got up and went to the door wanting to go with her dad! It may not be a monumental sign, but I think we are all heading in the right direction 🙂 ~ Nancy
Watch for More on Bill and Tikka and how they are bonding.
Not Long Ago
The Weimaraner is going to love the water if they feel at home in and on it. Tikka and Bill are off to a great start together. Big Sister ( Luna) does the Standup Paddle Board too! When watersports are something you love and want to share with the Weimaraner the introduction to water is essential.
Achieving the water retrieve might take patience. Some Weims are more natural swimmers than other. Nonetheless, they all have webbed toes and can become proficient swimmers.
Luna Sets the Standard
Tikka has a lot to learn, and Luna will be sharing the inside secrets. Nail grooming is key to being girlie. Other tips are important to such as how to cover up properly. The undercover Weim-mode is crucial to the Weimar person.
