Social Distancing Sucks

~Looking Out My Window

Mom hasn’t taken me to play with my friends in a while. I miss them all so much. Dad has been working from home and it’s the best. I get to spend so much time with him, he takes me for runs but it’s not nearly as fun as going to the park. I wonder when things will go back to normal.

We appreciate this update–it speaks to our situation. We feel your frustration.

Henry

-It Has Been a Year

Henry turned one in December– we got him a year ago in Feb. He’s huge. And loving, very clever and hilarious. He’s such a wonderful pup!

We met some friends who also have one blue and one grey weim! How funny!! Haha And of course, here he is looking beautiful and ready for Christmas. One more fun fact about Henry!! He is SOOOOOO vocal! He sings and talks when he wants things! Is he part husky! Haha

Then there are other laughable as well as adorable moments–we captured some of those here.

We cannot thank you enough for this fabulous update on Henry. He looks to be thriving, and what we notice the most is he is integral to all things family. From all appearances, the resident Gray boy accepted the new OwyheeStar Blue Boy. What a cute pair they make.

Stone

~You Might Remember the Incision Got Infected

Day 39 of the Cone
Never to close

Stone’s incision looks 98% healed. Finally. With just a tiny scab, I’m waiting until he finishes the antibiotics to grant him his freedom. This trooper has done his time with the cone of shame + body suit. Hasn’t changed his velcro status though. 
Sweetest dog ever. 
Best, 
Victoria

We are happy to hear that Stone’s ordeal has passed –and the cone can be put away. Thank you for all the extra work and care you give him. We truly appreciate you!

Play Date

~at Luna and Tikka’s

Chester and Pushkin

On Saturday mom took my to see my friends at Luna and Tikka’s house again for our play date. It was so much fun playing with my friends in the mud. Mom looked like she was pretty cold but she let me play for hours. I also got to meet my half brother Pushkin. We have the same dad! Our Mom’s say we look like twins so they kept trying to take our pictures together, but Pushkin and I decided not to  cooperate don’t they know we just want to play not sit still. Lol silly mommy’s. At the end mom gave me a new toy from the gift exchange I love it a lot and I play with it all the time. I cant wait until we get to go play again.

Special thanks to Nancy and Bill for hosting these very popular events–we are happy so many OwyheeStar clients get to participate. It was great to read about Pushkin and Winchester (Chester).

Therapy

~Who Needs a Weighted Blanket?

Imagines such as this appear across the Internet–and they speak to our heart and soul. Some might say the Weimaraner is too large for a lap dog. Ask the Weimar, and they will assure you that there is always room–if the human is willing. Well, shoot even if the human is not willing the Weimaraner can make the room.

If you are considering this breed and want to relegate them to the yard or out of the family area–we suggest you look at a different fur family member choice. The Weimaraner might be the ultimate Velcro Companion.

Whatever you are doing, the Weimaraner wants to be included–well, some will skip sharing the shower, but not everyone. Most certainly, they are the ultimate confidant keeping your secrets–and at the same time putting a paw on your weaknesses. Yes, they know how to exploit any situation. Our relationship is complex, don’t you agree?

Charlee

~Celebrates Her First Birthday

Charlee my little shadow turns one year old

She’s doing very well! She is my little shadow when I go out to take care of the farm animals. I still am planning to shed train her, but need her without accompaniment when we train. I just haven’t found the time…isn’t that always the case!


We love her. Thank you for breeding lovely Weimies! Just wanted to send you a picture of our little cutie, and her friend, on her first birthday!

We hope all is well with you and your family. 

Happy New Year!

Kristina and Tom

Cliff and I appreciate you remembering us on her birthday. We are happy that you love her and that she has adjusted –and functions well as your shadow. We hope you stay in touch.

Second Christmas

~Chester speaks about family life

This is my second Christmas, Mom and Dad brought home a big tree again… they dont even let me bring sticks into the house, so unfair. They keep bringing in all sorts of stuff they don’t want me to play with. It isn’t fair I’m pretty sure they should share.

Mom has all the stuff that she is wrapping in paper, weird huh. Sometimes when she isnt looking I take some of the stuff and try to run away to get her attention.

Mom got me a new sweater since I’ve gotten bigger since last year. She made me stand in front of her tree and told me to sit and stay but I didn’t really want to. One of my favorite things is to climb into mommy’s lap I can tell she is cold and needs me to warm her up. I can tell she loves it too. Merry Christmas and happy New year!

Breeder Comment

Chester (aka Winchester), thank you for writing this lovely note right amid the holiday hubbub. I guess you don’t have too much work other than keeping your Mom warm, snuggled, and entertained–and on her toes, also. The snatching of paper –Oh my gosh, I am sure she scolds you and then laughs, right?!? We love your new sweater–and that you are living the dream–other than not being allowed to chew on the tree and snatch packages.

Stone

~ Dog Park Incident

Just a quick update on Stone. Recently, we were engaged in a puppy playdate at the park – which I’m lucky enough to live two blocks away from. It’s at the bottom of my street, surrounded by trees and usually pretty empty.

There are about five or six puppies around the same age as Stone that live close to me – what luck! Stone was playing with three other puppies when a woman came into the park with her older dog and let her off leash. The dog came over to our pack and then attacked Stone. The lady didn’t say anything and didn’t leash her dog or take him away. I only saw later that Stone was actually bleeding. His bite became infected and we were off to the vet a day later. Needless to say, the puppy network has heard and passed along the story. We are all a little bit more wary. I don’t assume an off leash dog is friendly. The irony is that I avoid dog parks because of this and I only let Stone off leash when I know the dogs. This time I trusted too much. 


All is healed and it didn’t slow Stone down one bit. In addition he is recovering from a yeast infection in his ear. None of this has phased my very happy little guy. Here are some pictures of Stone frolicking at the park where we go 2-3 times a day. And of course his next favorite thing, sleeping with Blue. 


All my best, 
Victoria

We are always happy to hear from you, Victoria–and to learn about the adventures of Stone and those who accompany him. Nonetheless–we are sorry to hear about the attack at the dog park. It is not the first attack we have posted on our OwyheeStar Weimaraner News Blog. Not every dog or owner is encounter friendly–that is a reality we have to consider. Thanks for bringing this topic to our attention.

At My Friend’s Place

~Me, Winchester, Visiting Luna and Tikka

Mom took me to play with my friends at Luna and Tikka’s. Their parents are always so nice to host our playdates.

Mom put my costume on me and I ran around and played with my friends while our parents ate food. The food smelled so good but Mom wouldn’t let me have any. I got to play for 3 hours! Then I went home and had a nice long nap! Cant wait to see my friends again soon! ~ Chester

Dear Winchester–you lead an extraordinary life. You have a tough job taking care of your Mama and entertaining others. Cliff and I are glad you can get to the playdate to Bill and Nancy’s Salem home.

From Chester

Hunting season has started and Mom and Dad woke me up super early and we climbed up into the truck and drove to the woods. I love going to the woods, I get to run so fast because there isn’t a fence in the woods.

Mom and Dad were going so slow so I would turn around and sprint back to them but sometimes I have a hard time stopping and almost knock them over. We saw some birds and got some mushrooms to bring home. After we got done for the day we drove home but I was so tired from all the running around I had to take a nap. Can’t wait to go back soon and maybe next time we will catch something big to bring home. 


Love Chester.

Chester–you are amazing. You go on the best-ever adventures. Thank you for taking time out of your insanely busy schedule (where you take care of your Mommy and do other things, too) to drop us this note to share.
