~Emphasis on Hunting it Seems
Moxie and I wanted to check in and let you know we had a great day in the fields on the last day of Pheasant season here in California. It would’ve been better had we gotten a bird but we only saw a small hen and 1 rooster that day who proved to be faster than my mom’s quick draw and shot.
Smart, wild birds are my favorite! But that’s ok, we had a good day of awesome nose work and exercise. Next year we will get them!
Happy New Year to all the OwyheeStar Weims out there, especially the ones living life on the farm in Treasure Valley! ~ Chrissy
The bird got away is a common theme. (Haha) Regardless, Moxie would have retrieved it were it possible. What a great experience to be out hunting together. Thank you, Chrissy–for always remembering us with your newsy updates. They are fabulous!
~ We voted!
She slobbered all over the ballot envelope but everyone was so impressed she carried them in. I can’t thank you enough. She is so smart and a great companion. Whether it’s lounging on the couch and cuddling hard or bringing in the newspaper. Life would be so dull without her. I’m hooked!On another note, I adore all of your blogs and love the weekend updates on you & Cliff. The last pic you posted of him holding the 3 pups is so good. What a great pic. I very much enjoyed Loki’s post today. Ski patrol. So awesome! No surprise though. These Weims are so smart and want to learn. Amazing Shela. Thanks for all you do.Chrissy
Hi Shela and Cliff- just a quick note to say, again, how much I love, love, love Willow! And not just because of her multitude of accomplishments- UKC Best-In-Show and High-In-Trial Champion Sunstar Willow of OwyheeStar, AKC Canine Good Citizen, AKC Novice Trick Dog, UKC Rally Obedience I, UKC Agility I, Therapy Dog International certified.
She is such a wonderful dog in all respects- sweet temperamented, active yet calm, outgoing yet polite, she likes people and other animals, is highly intelligent and biddable, and has such a nice outlook on life in general. She is strong and healthy, and everywhere we go people marvel at how beautiful she is.I could not ask for a more perfect Weimaraner! I cannot believe she is almost seven years of age (a “veteran” in dog show circles), it seems like just yesterday I picked her up from you!Just a note of Thanks for my dear Willow, I love her to bits! Hugs, Jan~

Cypress weighs 40 pounds now, she is growing like a weed! She and Willow and Daisy play and play, they get along great. I have been taking Cypress to my dog obedience classes and she is already doing well as a demo dog! I will take her to puppy classes in January at my friend Kathy’s dog training center, as I will enjoy being a “student” and socializing Cypress. She is very healthy and beautiful, I get tons of comments on her. She is still quite shy but we are working on that, and I socialize her daily, I think she will come around as she gets older. She is very bonded with me and doesn’t wander at all, she likes to stay near me which is great.
I hope you are having a wonderful week, take care, Jan~

How to take a Mud Bath
Every Weimaraner loves a mud bath more than their regular bath right? Stackhouse is related to Atticus and most certainly shares his love of the mud bath. Even in the dead of winter, if he can find a mud puddle he belly flops in it for the sheer delight.
Happy With herself

On the North Island
~Atticus and I have been exploring the north island.
In case you missed part one and two
Hiking Mt. Te Aroha —- Enjoying the sun and sand at Raglan
Finished the Mt. Te Aroha hike —- Swimming at Lake Ngaroto
Visiting kiwi fruit vineyards —- Camping in Northland
He was great in the tent. There was a huge rain and wind storm that had the tent whipping back and forth all night. He just snuggled closer and slept the whole night.
Lounging in the sun —– Trying his paw at dog modeling
Some of the pictures don’t show it very well, but Atticus is quite furry on his sides and they are a light grey/silver color, compared to the darker blue on the rest of him. It’s not visible when he is wet, and the difference is more striking when he’s in the sun, like the above picture.
It’s getting close to a year since they’ve arrived. Atticus and I will continue exploring the surrounding areas and getting to know our new home. If anyone is going to be traveling this way, let us know. We have some pretty good tips so far.
This third blog concludes the three part update from New Zealand featuring the adventures of Atticus and Marika. We greatly appreciate the effort and the details Marika provided outlining their transition and the new lifestyle down under. We know so many of you enjoyed the share too!
