~ First Christmas
I was so worried how Knobby would act around the Christmas tree. The decision was made to put up an undecorated tree for about a week just get him used to it. He was curious but didn’t mess with it. We decorated the tree, paying special attention to the type of ornaments on the bottom, just in case. The stockings were hung and cherished decor was put out. I am happy to report no “Weim Crimes”, although he really likes the standing Santa. He may have knocked Santa over a few times, no harm, no foul.🎄🎅❄Now we are looking forward to 2020 and a 1st birthday party in March. 🎂🎉
We love hearing how you managed the first Christmas with Knobby.
~ PJs with Style
Knobby got his new PJ’s, now he’s truly the Knobigator 🐊
I found an Etsy store (majStyle) that specializes in Weimaraner, Vizsla, Greyhound body types. She make pj’s, hats, shirts, and neck-warmers based on your pups measurements. Took about 4 weeks but worth the wait.
Knobby looks adorable and has received many compliments. I love dressing him up and he’s getting really good about it. Hats are still a little questionable.
Christmas attiring coming soon…
Knobby (Flo x Boone) March 2019
We are speechless –just kidding. Well, I think this is just what the doctored order for today.
~ Knobby is a Blue
Knobby enjoying the crisp fall weather in his lumberjack chic new coat! He loves being outside when we are out doing our autumn chores. Such a goofy ball 🤪
He’s (Boone x Flo) 7 months and we love him–Darlene
Darlene–I know everyone is going to love this photo of Knobby. Thank you–and everyone who so graciously helped us keep this blog going with news of their OwyheeStar puppy.
Hello friends–some of you have wanted to see more about the Flo X Boone litter. We kept a pup from this mating –in hope of breeding her in the future. Here she is doing what she loves to do–sit on Cliff’s lap.
Well, she loves to do just about anything–Cliff has been working with her. She even followed Stackhouse into the pond. She swam but it was totally on a whim. She makes us laugh–and puts a smile on our face.
Here’s a short update on Dyson for your blog. I could write about him every week!!
Dyson (Boone x Flo) is 6 months now and 55lbs. I remember in the 6 week behavior assessment you commented on how he uses his paws. Well! I think he might be a southpaw but is close to being ambidextrous as I’ve never had a dog use his paws so much for everything.
Both ears are rarely fully down which I think makes him even cuter than possible. He is so friendly and smothers kisses on everyone he meets. Last night at the pet store a toddler saw him and opened her arms wide to him and he was so gentle with her and his kisses. Made my heart melt as he hasn’t been around too many children. Not very many blues in Canada so he is jaw dropping to everyone. He gets smarter, more challenging and more magnificent each day!~ Mardo in Calgary
Would love to see pics of other Flo and Boone pups from March!
Ps. Here’s a great new Kong toy I found which is great for stuffing small kibble, treats and peanut butter into the holes, on both sides.
We appreciate your cute and newsy update, Mardo. Possibly someone else will read this that has a littermate and send us another update. That would be excellent.
We are glad to hear you are doing well together–thanks again.
Dyson is well and growing fast. He goes to puppy class and is a superstar. He also goes to puppy socialization play dates weekly. He’s a little shy to get started but once he observes for awhile he’s happy. If he gets overwhelmed he finds someone’s legs to stand in between. He loves people! One of the supervisors said he is a polite puppy which made me proud.
At home he’s in love with playing with Leo and Leo has accepted him fully. Dyson is very interested in people first dogs second. And he likes to sit watch and observe new situations. Oh he’s going to be such a smart dog!!
We appreciate the update (including the photos)–and especially insight into living with this lovely boy. Thanks for remembering us–it means a lot.
~ Part Two
What a fun first week we’ve all had introducing Bluebell to all the wonders of a yard complete with a ball. Once we got bells on her collar (even though a bit BIG) and could hear her moves, it all went much easier, especially since I forgot the draw of them getting behind the sofa!
Bluebell spent time retrieving and did quite well at it while old girl Bell kept watch as she remembers that ball well but at close to 14 years old seems happy to watch. I get it! Our weather’s been rainy and it doesn’t faze Bluebell one bit, she’s becoming aware of more in her new environment each day and has had her nose to the ground seeking good things…all good Weime traits my husband who grew up with them looks for, his parents took all rescues locally for years, they had Weimaraner’s 3 and 4 at a time. Can’t imagine that many!
My worries about two dogs at once are gone, it’s all going well, Bluebell seems to of been handled more than I’d imagined or she’s simply very smart, which does happen, Bell is very smart, caring and now we know patient, she’s not got cranky about having a small leaping biting new kid wanting her attention.
The information packet you filled with great information was truly filled with solid reminders on things I’d forgotten, I touch her toes, stretch her legs, ears, working on command for ‘open’ for her mouth, touch her while she’s chewing her Pig’s Ear, thank you ever so much for including a Pig’s Ear, it was all very helpful. I did her AKC Paperwork and the Microchip activation as you suggested separately with each company, so that should be coming with her new ID tags. Making it easy for me I’ll never forget because I needed it all to be easy, thank’s to your and Cliff’s hard work it happened, thank you both. It shows that you both have been at this a few years. We wore her out this weekend happily frolicking to and fro, all good, thank’s again, Debbie
You might remember Bluebell from Monday’s Blog–click here! We are very fortunate to have another note from Bluebell’s Mama. I don’t know what else to say except, thank you–Debbie.
Thank’s for the info. We’ll get her paperwork taken care of soon.
Bluebell has had her shot, all is well so far, back on schedule, thank’s again for helping with that, I so needed it. She’s gone out on her own to potty twice today, she’s figured out our doggie screen door (long story but it works), slept all night, in her crate at 8pm and awakening at 7 this morning!
Of course she’s snoozing within sight of Bell and I go early when she does and watch movies, seems to be all working out. This morning both dogs had a lovely moment, Bell’s unwilling to warm quickly as Bluebell likes to jump up and outright bite her, but in less than a week, they already are much closer. Being 14 August 29, Bell is very sweet with all that’s going on and adjusting well.
There’s a first week update…our family is doing well with the new addition of Bluebell #8…Thank’s again for all your hard work. Debbie
Thank you, Debbie, for the beautiful update. So happy that things are going reasonably well–I mean a tiny pup and the aged girl, it is challenging. But you have this managed.
Here she is a few days before she left OwyheeStar. That face says a lot.
~Let’s say he is much-loved
Dyson joined our family a few days ago and has settled in like he was born here!. He seems to know his name well already, comes when called and does his business in the outdoor kennel perfectly. He is quiet in his crate (a couple minutes whimper and that’s all) and only gets us up 1-2x a night. He plays hard and loves his toys (especially the duck!). He chases after and is wearing down our 8 yo weim with his persistence to notice him, and thus Leo has finally started to look at him and lay down within a 4-6 foot distance.
He’s a sweet sweet boy and we love him dearly.
Thank you, Mardo, for everything –including this lovely update. We truly appreciate it.
