Two Boys and Ron
~Here is Tallyn at 8 Months
The last 5 1/2 mo have been enlightening!!! Tobryn is the dominate male (thanks to your advice) and I may have to have all the entry ways made larger if Tallyn continues to grow! Which he will. LOL LOL . We are thriving and it has been a process.
Hope all is well at your end and email when you get a chance. ~ Ron
Twice the Fun
Ron had planned on getting two Weims at once. He had a dream. Over a period of years, one thing after another happened to prevent him from moving ahead. We stayed in touch on a casual basis for what seemed like a decade.
He spoke of getting Tallyn and Tobryn–two brothers. Ron had had two littermates–he was looking for a repeat experience. Cliff and I talked to him about considering the idea of getting one at a time. You know– with a bit of space between each one. Eventually, this is how things unfolded — with Tallyn (the second boy) joining the family earlier this year. He is now four-months-old, and Ron has kept us apprised of the process from the beginning. Click here to read more from a previous post.

Did a “double take” when I walked into the living room!!!! Tobryn has been amazing! Shows his teeth multiple times during the day, but has never actually BIT Tallyn. I suspect that he is setting boundaries. We all are slowly evolving into the new norm. But after talking to others at the dog park, I know I am way ahead of the curve. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your advice about making sure that everyone knows their “pecking order.” When we go out, Tobryn gets into the front door of the car and Tallyn goes to the rear door.

First puppy class starts tomorrow (Thursday) at 630p. Tallyn has an IQ that probably rivals mine. Tobryn and Tallyn now sleep in the same bed……….sometimes cheek to cheek. The initial acceptance phase has progressed. As we continue this journey, I’m forever grateful for you, Cliff, as well as the Mother and Father of Tallyn.
We are thrilled to hear the transition is going well. It was the plan from the beginning to make it a duo (two males). Finding a second pup that fit well into the family was important. Nevertheless, it requires a bit of knack to incorporate a new pup with the resident Weimaraner. Many of our clients have two Weimaraners. It is doable, but having two alpha-acting types is never a good thing. Thank you, Ron, for keeping us in the loop.
Goes to Town
~ D & B Supply (Ontario, OR)
“Deja Vu” born August 1st, 2015 to Ginger’s litter sired by “Blue”. Sunday she made her first trip into town with us since she was pup visiting the Veterinary.
She was amazing! No previous leash training had been done with her–our schedule has been crazy! She didn’t get into things–even those at her eye (nose level). She greeted everyone with joy and was appreciated by all.
Deja is compact. She is also a happy and tail-wagging girl. Here she is in action!
We are Happy to have Blu in our Lives
I am a huge dog-lover. As a kid, I grew up with Labs. As an adult (and as a father) I had to take a back seat to what dogs my kids liked. Needless to say, it has been a long time coming for me to have “My Dog”. The kids are grown, that is except for our four-year-old. She is not yet old enough to select her dog of choice. This time around it is my turn. I love the fact that they are friendly and feel part of the family. Have looked into this breed for years.
Blu is making his way into our home and hearts
Plenty of room for Blu to run around. My youngest Daughter is in love with Blu, and he likewise with her.
Hi Shela and Cliff,
Today, the 6th of December, marks the one year anniversary since Tobryn came into my life.
It has been an extraordinary year of growth and adventures. He continues to amaze me each and every day. Tobryn has topped out at about 55 lbs and as weims go, you were right, he is not a large weim, but he is perfect in every way.
After the holidays, I will get back in touch with you and I hope discuss the possibility of Tallyn arriving in the spring. May your holidays be filled with family and friends and may your New Year be blessed with health and continued prosperity.
Breeder’s Note: We look forward to getting you a second Weim. Ron, it has been almost a decade we have been talking about you having two OwyheeStar male Weims. We are happy to help you fulfill that dream. Thanks for updating us on Tobtyn. We are glad he brings you challenges, as well as enjoyment. You have done great with him.
I have been busy from day one here. These are pretty good humans you found for my entertainment. I have Weimar to play with too! I am reporting that life is good. Thank you for finding me the perfect placement. “WooF”
Potty training 97% done.
I have a “store keepers” bell hung. Pics were taken within the last week. I love this butt-pic with him in his play-pen.
Breeder’s Note: Many OwyheeStar puppy-folk have hung a bell at the door. They begin ringing it with each trip to the yard, and soon the pup will run for door and ring the bell. Housebreaking can be tricky. Pups go often when they are given freedom to run around. Freedom should be earned.
The concrete-thinking Weimaraner may decide to opt for the indoor potty approach when they are given the opportunity. Using the crate is not a mean approach–it is not puppy jail. The crate-training-scenario (with the right size crate) more often than not leads to excellent potty manners. The opportunity for the very cunning (and manipulative) Weimaraner can lead to battles best avoided. Our philosophy is to be matter of fact in your approach, follow through, and get it done right up-front. Then everyone is happier!
