~ Willow Wins Again!
She took an altered Reserve Best-In-Show today! At 6-1/2 years of age! ❤️❤️❤️. Jan
At 7 they are considered a “veteran”, they can certainly still show and win, however, most really top-winning dogs are under five years of age.
She was still limping (from her shoulder injury) yesterday so I pulled her, she was good this morning so we went in the ring for both shows and she did great.I love Willow so much!Hugs, Jan
Bella and Mama
Cuddling, snuggling, and hugging are a thing. They make for an adorable snapshot with Sri and Bella.
Most Weimaraners are not Certified Therapy Dogs; however, the vast majority provide us with a type of therapy you cannot buy in a bottle at the pharmacy.
Their hugs and their antics not only keep us entertained but are proven to extend life expectancy. We need this element in our life, and while the Weimaraner might not be for everyone, for some, nothing else will do. Everyone is a bit different but has the Weimaraner quality we find magnetic. You are either infected (addicted or whatever you want to call it) or you are not. Cliff and I believe you agree with us when we say they make us better humans.
Did you party this weekend?
Well, this photo is from Cinco De Mayo. Anytime could call for a beverage; however, weekends can be a time to seriously chill. After a grueling week of demanding work and landmine filled projects, you deserve a break. Who better to join you that your two favorite fur family members?
Please keep in mind that alcohol can be dangerous for your pet. Alcohol poisoning is a risk, and the amount of alcohol required to send you flying to the emergency room is always in question. Click here to learn more about this topic.
Zeka Brings Home Lucky
A Good Fit For Us!
We Are Working It Out
Lucky is Avery’s Shadow
He really bonded with Avery, it’s comical; he is (literally) Avery’s shadow when he is here. He sits in front of the bathroom door and waits until he is done showering or the front door when he leaves until I convince him to come hang out with Zeka and me.
They Are Going to Be Great Together!
We do not get a lot of returns; however, we usually have one or two available. We also have moved to a process of rehoming our females earlier so they can have a second career. This was a difficult decision, but we can see how beneficial it is. We are working on a post that will warm your heart. One of the former girls is excelling in her new career as a therapy specialist. We are thrilled that Lucky (who is Blu’s brother) has found such a wonderful placement. We thank Ginger and Avery for adopting him and reporting back to us.
Lyra comes of Age
Hello from Lyra’s Family
2 and a half years ago, I received my best friend from you. I named her Lyra from a book series I love. Anyway, Lyra is from Lacee X Dusty 2012. Here are some photos for you to share; and as you can see she’s grown into a lovely girl. She is so beautiful and such an amazing dog/companion.
Another Blue Please
I’m ready for my second Blue. I want a large, strong male this time. Also Blue, and with similar characteristics as Lyra. I’d like him to be playful and curious, very intelligent and confident, and strong, athletic, and agile. A while ago, there was a police officer that had a female from you. She was a canine good citizen. Square face, strong legs, etc. I would like our boy to be a runner and hiker and adventurer, like that, like me and Lyra.
The ideal timeline for us will be late February or early March if it’s possible. Thanks so much, and I look forward to working with you both again.
Referrals and return clients are our bread and butter so to speak. We value our relationship with each of you and hope you will stay in touch with us on a regular basis. We hope you share the good as well as bad things that happen along the way. We certainly hope the OwyheeStar pup bring you joy and more positive than negative experiences. That being said, we try to set up each puppy for success. We are not raising these magnificent creatures to meet an unfortunate outcome. We realize that all our work can be undone in very short order; however, we believe when a person follows our recommendations things can go extraordinarily well. Much of what the OwyheeStar becomes depends upon your follow through and a bit of knack. Each pup is unique. We keep saying this is a journey and recommend that you let it unfold. With the unfolding, you must stay on track and grasp the breeds tendency toward separation anxiety and its concrete-thinking mentality. Understanding those two traits along with you being in a right relationship (based on respect) make all the difference. Honestly, each person has a different level of leadership skills. You have to work with your skill set too! We are so proud of Lyra’s achievements, and we are equally thrilled she delights her family.
Florian speaks of “Willow” who has been featured many times on the blog. Champion Willow and Jan Magnuson have achieved some pretty amazing things together. Yes, they earned the Canine Good Citizen Award early on. Since then, they have earned Best of Show, a Therapy Dog Certificate, and more. Click here to read about Willow’s success. Lacee (Willow and Lyra’s mother) is coming near to the end of her first career; when she retires it cannot be said what she will be doing.
Our Bella turned one on July 14th.
It seems like it was yesterday we brought her home. She is now a pure 80 lbs of love. She has the girliest personality and likes to cuddle only when she feels like it, so it’s a treat for us when she lets us cuddle her LOL. She is also a barker; she barks at clouds, at the wind, when she sees a school bus … Just about anything 🙂 .. Her sad puppy eyes make it possible for her have us wrapped around her paw, and she knows it too.
Balloons — Seriously Mom?
We got her balloons for her birthday, but it turned out that she is terrified of balloons. Lucky for us we were able to snap a few pictures before she walked away. She is our adorable Miss Bella, and we love her.
Everyone at OwyheeStar. and all our followers wish you many more years! You are a much-loved dear girl. We send a message of love to thank you to you and your family for sharing this special moment with us.

Where is the Easter Basket?
I hope you had a great Easter. Here is Bella with her bunny ears and Easter Bonnet.

Bella Kisses and Loves
She (We) Did Pretty Good
Bells is sending her love and kisses. She completed her basic obedience training. She did pretty good at class 😉 I’m a proud mama lol. She is such a sweet girl and spoiled rotten at home. Daddy still has to carry this 50 lbs of love to bed every single night.
Take care and love from all of us. ~ Sri and Kevin
It proves to you we are trainable. Right?
We just wanted to share with you (Cliff and Shela) that we passed our puppy class. We had a great time. They had us perform two tricks today. So we used the stool and had Bailey get on her stool for one trick. And then we used American Sign Language for off and had her get off without any voice commands. She did great. She knows stay, off and wait in sign language. Hope you have a very merry Christmas and we are praying for you during your treatment. 😍
