~ More Hugs Please
After a long day of Mark and I at work, sometimes she just wants hugs..
The Weimaraner can rarely get enough hugs or touching. For those who desire space–this breed is probably not going to work.
~Spunk and Snuggles
We just love Kenai more and more each day. He’s a little adventurer, and a great combination of spunk and snuggle. Casey has been working on his beginning hunting training – introducing him to birds and gunshots. He’s been doing fantastic!
His vet cleared him to start exploring more, and to go camping! So last week we headed up to Olympic National Park, and then down the coast, stopping in Astoria for a night before heading home. He wasn’t able to go everywhere in the national park, of course, but there were a few dog-friendly areas to explore, and meet new people. He loved it! Here’s a few shots taken on our trip.
Kaylen and Casey
Cliff and I are so delighted to receive your report. What a fun adventure. Thanks for the hard work–keep it up. You are off to a fabulous beginning.

~Just wanted to update you on our not so little anymore Ashe!
We just back from the vet earlier this week and weigh in was just at 30lbs!
She is certainly growing into her own and has no lack of personality.
She’s not the most graceful pup, she tends to barrel through just about anything and falls down constantly but she has no fear and we love that about her!
She loves her brother Chase (Australian Sheppard) so much, and he is finally warming up to her and playing with her.
Hope all is well over at OwyheeStar!
We are loving Ashe more and more every day, even when she won’t leave one of us alone ☺️.
Much Love,Jett and Chauntel
People like you make what we do a joy! We truly appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to share these photos and some insight into your life with Ashe.
~Have You Heard of a Soft-Mouth?
(8/15/2019) I have to tell you guys about Tikka today! We’re camping on a lake and we paddled out to an island, well Tikka obviously “found something ” she was super excited and kind of lounged then it looked like she tossed something but kept after what ever it was. I noticed a mama bird that was upset so I called her off. As we were leaving she ran back that way and started swimming away from us and wouldn’t come when called. When she finally came back it was obvious that she had something in her mouth (dang it a dead baby bird!) . She was swimming differently, slow and careful. She swam directly to me and gave me a live baby bird that I returned to it’s nest
😊Here are some photos from our recent adventure.
Supposedly, the Weimaraner is not naturally soft-mouthed. Small game and game birds frequently don’t fair well–but having said that, Cliff had had many a retrieved bird fly out of an OwyheeStar Weimaraner’s mouth. A soft-mouthed dog is a good thing.
Thank you, for sharing your story–and all these great photos. We know everyone loves seeing Tikka and Luna.
~First We Had So much fun
We took Zeus to the coast today for his first day trip. He steered clear of the water but loved the sand and wide open spaces to run. He loved it! Then slept the entire way home!
We are so happy to learn that Zeus is doing well–and how we would have loved to be there for the trip to the Oregon Coast.
~ The Adventure Begins
–From Larry July 23, 2019
And the adventure starts. No more sleeping in —- up at 4:30 or 5:00 in the AM. I have to go to bed at 9 or 10 at the latest. You and Cliff sure know how to pick a dog for me. This guy just wants to be with me and that is want I wanted. Brady was great on the way home. I think that he will be easy to house break, I just have watch him like a hawk. I went out with him at 4:30 am, he went pee and came right back into the house. But he would not lay down to go back to sleep. So We went out again, he did a # 2 this time, back in to the house, went to sleep this time. I just have to think like a pup and give him more time. He will tell me what he wants, I just have to pick up on his clues.
We have made it through a couple of day and nights. Brady is working overtime on our training. Ila is having a time with Brady. He has attacked her shoes and bit her on the arm, the blood was flowing.
I know everyone tells you how smart their weim is – its true I think that all of the OwyheeStar weims or very smart. The only thing left is to train the owners so they are as smart as their weim. ( Are you smarter than as eight week old weim ? ).
Ila and I want to thank you for all that you do to provide these great pups.
You might remember Reno (a long time OwyheeStar Blog favorite). Unfortunately, Larry lost Reno–it was a devastating and swift loss of the worst kind. It was a rare bone cancer–took him quick. The grief is unthinkable, but no one (human or critter) is immune. For a goodly number of years, no OwyheeStar ever died of cancer–I wish it were still so.
I am sure you and Ila will get this pup raised–but there is the stuff of raising pups for sure. The shark-biting baby (and older skin is the worst). I am sure you got the tips I sent to you along with everyone else that has a Bernie X Boone pup–on puppy biting. Thank you, Larry–for your loyalty and the fabulous update (with photos). As always –your photos are great.
~Greetings from Southern Oregon!
Just had to drop a note and tell you how much Nutz LOVES to play ball. It doesn’t matter what time of the day it is, she is always ready to play.
Even when she is played out (is that possible? haha) she has it in her mouth.
Nutz about the Ball
We have never had a dog who loved her balls as much as she does! We are so thankful for her! Couldn’t imagine life without her!!
Weimer hugs, Mark and Robin
This blog is a crazy-fun. Thank you, Robin and Mark. We know you are a long time Weimaraner couple–with the passing of Jet, and then the arrival of Nutz it was game on. We are thrilled that you are ever so happy with the second OwyheeStar.
~ We Love Her
I wanted to give you an update on Ashe.
She adjusted very quickly to the car, Chauntel (my girlfriend) drove so I could be in the back with her on our almost 5 hour journey home.
Once we got home we had the first meet and greet with our Australian Sheppard ‘Chase’
I asked for personality and boy did we get that, she has no fear, except the loud bark on occasion!
Her favorite hobbies are naps, exploring (under very close supervision) and causing a little terror between those naps.
Thank you so much for everything you and Cliff have done and continue to do. We love the new addition to our family very much even when she’s a complete handful!
When you met Ashe, will be a moment in time I will not forget. The way she took to –and all that happened in those first few moments. Wow! It was precious. As you know–she has been a little stressed with her littermates departing pretty much all at once nearly an hour earlier. (Haha) All was forgiven–you were there. How precious.
Thanks ever so much for this lovely update. I know we all appreciate hearing the news.
~Sweet and Spunky
I thought I’d send you a Milly (Bernie and Boone 2018) update since it’s been a while. She turned one in April and we have had her for a year as of June. She is such an amazing addition to the family! She is so sweet and very spunky.
The kids adore her fun loving personality. She is an amazing hunter and everyone who has gone behind her can’t believe how young she is.
She loves the water and can keep up with the labs at the family beach house.
One funny thing about her is she loves to sleep in! She gets up with me and pretends to follow me down the stairs to go outside, but as soon as I turn my back she runs into bed with one of the kids and often doesn’t appear to eat and go outside until after 8:00 am!
As we have crossed over the year mark it’s fun to see her get more “adultish” and not have to worry about where she is every second (anything on the ground used to be chewing fair game).
We have also enjoyed getting passed the plant destruction phase (ha!). Hope you enjoy these photos as well as this fun video of Milly pulling my son on his boogie board at the beach. Hope all is well!
Thank you–for this lovely update on your ‘Milly’. She is amazing! Also–to all of you who just picked up your Bernie X Boone 2019–here is one at one year.
~Making her way into our heart and home
Skye is doing great. Shadow and Skye bonded immediately. It is amazing how much easier a puppy is when they have another dog to learn from and be a companion. Robert loves her. They (Shadow and Skye) started to sleep together the first night by their choice. Fun to see.
She will see the vet on Wednesday. I go to the Dog and Cat Wellness Center in Weiser.
We are thrilled to hear that Robert was delighted–even more thrilled to hear that Shadow and Skye were quick to bond. This doesn’t always happen–it is extraordinary. I assure you that several who read our blog are envious.
