 Encounters

     ~Of the OwyheeStar Kind

Yesterday when we were paddle boarding we stoped along the river at rouge brewery to have lunch. While we were there a family stopped me to talk about the dogs (this happens all the time!) and it turns out that they also have two of your dogs! They live in(or near) Jackson hole & have two longhairs. They were very excited to see Luna because “she’s a legend ” ; Bill and I called her Luna the Legend the rest of the day 😂 We were with my son and his family and later (totally joking) Justin said to me “I wanted to tell that lady, ‘did you know she has actual kids too?!'”
It’s amazing the people we meet because of the girls!

Well, there was This!

Tikka’s first paddle boarding trip, she was a little nervous but by the end of the day she was getting the hang of it! Then there was Luna the pro

Click Here to read a previous story about Luna and SUP experience. Poor Tikka must live in Luna’s shadow. (Haha) Don’t fret Tikka–you are fabulous! Oh — Nancy, that family is no longer on Facebook. So, we rarely touch base back and forth. Thanks for mentioning them to us.

Running Circles

Cooper

    ~at Three Months

Meeder's Cooper_1733Both boys (Luke (wearing the sunglasses, and Cooper) just love the pool. Cooper at 3 months is running circles around Luke who is now six years old.

They are getting along swimmingly,

Cooper likes to jump on Lukes back from the side, they are so hilarious.
Thanks again for all the love and kindness you and Cliff put to rearing these guys – they are both so trusting which makes it so much more pleasurable to train them.
~Thanks — Cal

Not So Long Ago

PS: And the exercise in the pool is so much easier on their paw pads than the desert floor. Cooper is up to 3 cups of food a day and still not packin’ any belly fat – looks like we have a big boy on the way …

Breeder Comment

Thank you, Cal, for the update. We love seeing Cooper (Bernie X Boone 2018) taking to the water. You are correct about the pool being a lot easier on the paw pads; however, it is ideal for joints and overall health. We encourage everyone to work on getting the water-retrieve–the benefits are multifaceted. The young Weimaraner needs to limit the pounding of the pavement–until the growth plates close. What’s a person to do with all that excess energy–well, swimming is the ideal solution.

It is so great to see Luke having adjusted to Cooper’s arrival. At first, the interloper was not to his liking; however, now he has a brother/friend–a special companion.

Water Weim

     ~ in the works!

Willow just discovered the joys of water! She was apprehensive at first, but we lured her into the baby pool with a floating rubber ducky. The trick was acting as if we didn’t notice her.
Naturally, she thought she was getting away with something 🙂 It was so much fun watching her splash around and discover it on her own.
Later, she tried jumping in the hot tub, so we know she’s ready to take to the lake this weekend! We are overjoyed that she may love the beach as soon as her boosters are done!
Much love – Renee & Tony35941752_10155328576266126_3741916679555252224_o

We (along with the world) have been watching Willow’s adventures. Thank you, Renee. I love that you have not forgotten Roxy–I see those posts honoring her life. We met so very long ago. Who knew we would be able to stay connected over the years?

Cliff and I are ever so thankful for your loyalty and friendship. We don’t take it lightly. We know Willow will have every advantage available. We sincerely hope she continues to delight your heart. I am positive Roxy is watching over everything–possibly shaking her head and patting her paw to give direction.

~ Makes us a Two-Weim Family, Again!

Meeder's Two_1518

The boys are doing very well.
Cooper is sleeping through the night in his kennel and has only had 3 pee learning experiences in the house in 10 days.

I think we are on our way, thanks to your great pre-training. They get along pretty well. Now for the 8-hour drive to the desert on vacation, figure it will be best to stop along outbid the way stops for potty breaks as the rest stops and main exits see 1000’s of visiting dogs which could pose a problem until the pups received his final Parvo shot.
I’ll keep you posted – thanks again.

Thanks for being such a loyal client. It looks good to see Luke tolerating the new upstart. It sounds like things are going well. Enjoy the vacation–it should be an excellent time of bonding.

What a Beginning

Macey

     ~Friends for Life

I got a Weim a number of years ago from Cliff and Shela. They passed on and every since I have been trying to get another Weimaraner from OwyheeStar. As it happened, we now live in Tennesee; however, right when the puppy was old enough to fly as it would happen, we were in California. Cliff and Shela shipped the puppy to me — a direct flight. The next day we boarded the flight with our new family member (as our carry on) to fly back home. It could not have worked out better.

Our Son and Macey

My son wasn’t too fond of dogs before meeting Macey. This disinterest was because he was never really attached to any we have had; probably because they never came to him. Then, there was the Cocker Spaniel who was outright mean to him. Thank you, for putting a huge smile on his face.

The puppy was amazing on the flight home. There have been no accidents in the house. She is great, we couldn’t ask for anything more. Tonight will be her first journey on the boat and maybe she will get in the water. Thanks, again–Don

Breeder Comment

Don, we are so happy to hear that your son has a dog. There are so memories being made even as I type this note. A boy and his dog. Isn’t it fabulous? Cliff and I wish you all the best with Macey–we hope she shapes up to be a fabulous versatile hunting companion. May she live long and bring in the birds, too! We look forward to hearing about your adventures as they unfold. Drop us an update whenever you find the time. We appreciate your loyalty. People like you make what we do worth all the effort. Thanks ever so much!

     ~ Unique Girls

30656691_10211854209531615_7792702852710793216_oThe 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.

It’s Nutz

Robin Says

Nutz says, “You need some love, Mama.”

My baby girl is almost as tall as I am.   She’s growing like a weed,  but she still thinks she’s “little”.

Here is our young pup (Nutz) along with the Old girl (Jet)

Breeder Comment

Our relationship with Mark and Robin goes back quite a few years. In fact, their parents also have an OwyheeStar Weim from us. We appreciate our loyal folks. Most of you realize we have been doing this long enough that we have a high percentage of repeat families as well as direct referrals.
Mark and Robin want to add a third Weim to the mix. Jet is up in years and doesn’t want to play with the high-energy Nutz. They want to get her a new playmate soon. That will most likely make Jet happy, too. Nutz was featured on the blog a few days ago. Click here to view that post.

Crazy for Nutz

20180131_135629This 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.

20171005_131810Nutz 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.20180218_110447

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.

Growing Like a Weed

And More

     ~ Cute Faces

Cypress_1305-8x10-HiResCypress 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~

November 27, 2017 — Cypress and Willow

 

 

~Veterinary Visit News

(November 14, 2017) — I weighed Cypress at the vet today, she weighs 31 pounds!!!  OhMyGoodness!!!  And there is not a speck of fat on her…

 

(December 1, 2017) — Cypress had her sixteen-week titer and it came back fabulous so she won’t need another DAP right now.  We did her rabies vaccine, so she is set for a while.  I plan to do the two-vaccine Lepto in a bit, as we do have Lepto in this area, it is not a combo vaccine (I did that with Willow too).  Cypress is very healthy, no signs of parasites and she is gaining weight. Her condition and coat are beautiful.  She is very clumsy, she is like a foal or a fawn, she trips over her own feet and legs sometimes!  She is around 35 pounds now at four months.

~At Class With Jan

I took her to obedience class this week, she is just learning her basics and I was able to use her for demos.  I am happy now that Cypress’s immunity is in full swing, she can meet more (safe) dogs.  She is kinda shy and reserved at first with people and new situations, she is more that way than Willow was, but she is coming around.  With that type of temperament comes the very positive aspects where she stays close to me and doesn’t wander off, checks for my approval constantly, and is VERY bonded with me.  She is VERY biddable.

~Cypress and Willow (with Daisy)

24172987_10214230882749296_630886405484584027_oCypress and Willow and Daisy adore each other, they all play and play, and they all have similar gentle play styles.  I chuckle that at first Daisy was unimpressed with a new puppy in our family, but within a very short time, they became fast friends!  Willow is the best big sister ever, she is so gentle and patient with Cypress, I am so happy.  I always make sure to give each dog their separate, special time with me, while I leave the other two outside or whatever- I feel that is one of the reasons I have always had multiple dogs that get along.

Talk to you soon, Hugs, Jan  

PS: I am always happy to be a reference as you know!

We are beyond blessed. Thank you, for all your help over the years–support, encouragement, referrals, endorsements, and what you do with your OwyheeStar Weims. It means more than words on a page can express. We wish you continued success in your journey. We are ecstatic about the titles and the joy you find in all you do with the girls.
