~at Luna and Tikka’s
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).
~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?
~Celebrates Her First Birthday
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.
~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!
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.
~ 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,
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.
~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.
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.
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.
Big Brother Blue using Stone as a pillow. Love.
Stone is working out for Big Brother Blue–the perfect pillow. If you have a couple of Weims, what more could you hope?
~Reports on his Camping Adventure
We just got home from the best camping trip ever. I remember this place from when I was little mom and dad took my last year when I was just a puppy. But now that I’m bigger it was so much more fun.
We dug in the sand for clams and I got so dirty. I jumped in the water to clean myself off I loved the water. We even ran on the beach. There was water there too. At night when mom and dad are sleeping I love to jump into their cots and hog all the bed. I can’t wait til we do it again.
Breeder’s Reply to Winchester
Dear Dude–what a fun place to go camping. At the dirt, the water, and the fun combined to make it a memorable trip. I appreciate you dropping us a note and getting someone to snap the pictures of you, too. You write really well–I should find out where you studied. (Haha)
~ Current Status–Change on the Horizon
I just wanted to send you an update with some pictures/videos since it’s been a little while. This week I’m getting ready to make the move to Tennessee. My mom and I drive the UHaul down next Saturday! Very excited but also a little nervous haha.
Taun seems to know something is up and has been sticking very close at all times. Here’s a picture of him on the end table in the living room…he’s not exactly supposed to be on there but it was cute so I got a pic.
We’ve been going on lots of morning walks and he reminds me in the morning if I’m not up quick enough. He also comes the barn lot and really loves it when there’s some puddles to splash in.
The puppies are inseparable as you can see, although Bella yells at Bacchus quite a lot for going in her crate. They absolutely love to carry sticks around together outside (usually the same stick between the two of them).
I’m really looking forward to exploring options with you guys for getting an adult dog in need of a new home in the near future, of course since these dogs don’t come along every day I know there may not be an exact timeline.
I hope all is well with you and Cliff!
All the best, Grace
If you are confused, Grace (Laura and Jon’s daughter) is moving away from her family. It is a significant change, and once settled, she hopes to get an OwyheeStar Weimaraner to join her in Tennessee. The Three OwyheeStar resident Weims are picking up that change is in the wind.
