Tomato Thief

~ Who Knew?

Here is my tomato plant fencing…SOMEBODY snitches my cherry tomatoes once they begin ripening if I don’t put up a barrier! 😄

I was thinking you may want to use this for your blog… Willow is nine today (December 30, 2020), she is healthy and is the most wonderful girl and I love her so much!  Thank You and Cliff for allowing me to have such a perfect Weimaraner!
I just took these pics of her~  

Hugs and Happy New Year, Jan

Thank you to you and Willow for the fabulous update (with photos) for our blog. Willow and Jan–you rock! And Happy Birthday–we hope for many more celebrated years–each is a special gift!

A Tired Dog is a Good Dog

~Compliments of Jan Magnuson

We like to say “a Tired Dog is a Good Dog”- DAILY exercise like walks, playtime, and training help keep our dogs (and us too!) healthy and happy!  
My dog trainer friends and I all agree that a majority of dog owners we deal with do not provide enough daily exercise for their dogs, hence why they have so many behavior and training issues.  There are many aspects to having a well-behaved and well-trained canine companion, the first and foremost is tiring them out each day!  When dogs are sufficiently exercised, mentally and physically, they are less inclined to misbehave like jumping up on people, chewing inappropriate articles, and running away…keeping them “pooped out” makes them better pets!     

Pictured above are my three sweet girls all tuckered out and snuggled in after a fun, busy day~

Most of you know Jan and Willow. We are so blessed to have her expertise to share, and as a friend–fellow Weimlover. If you are not familiar with their accomplishments–Click Here.

Also–keep in mind that a young Weimaraner is challenging to raise for a lot of reasons–they have endless energy. They also have limitations–they cannot be run hard until those growth plates close. Click Here to learn more!

~Meet My Family

We don’t all look the same, but aren’t we a classy looking group?

Jan’s Update

Hi– I was happy to read that Cliff is a bit improved, we are all pulling for you and your family.  I know I am very far away, however, please let me know if I can do anything to help you.

Willow and Company Geared Up!

Here is a quick blog pic and a few words if you want to use it: 
Yes, I have become a dog owner who puts coats on my dogs, LOL!  They are inside so much that they are used to the warm, so now that the weather is cooler, coats go on when they go outside!  I love my little doggies 🙂  Willow sends hugs and kisses to you all!

I left the whole of the note that Jan wrote in response to my need for blog material–the kind that makes it easy for me to post. I so appreciate her note. Like so many of you, she is rooting for Cliff to recover quickly. To say your prayers, love, and support was essential would be a vast understatement. We are forever grateful.

We all know Jan and her doggies–especially the amazing Willow. Thanks, Jan!

As always, we include Jan’s contact information–she is a fabulous dog training. Of course, she and Willow have won a wheelbarrow load of awards, titles, and trophies. Click here to check out Willow’s Wall.

Yesterday, we received two updates. We hope there will be more in the weeks ahead. Thanks for your help.

Willow, we love you are wearing the OwyheeStar cap –you are so adorable, as always. You are a rockstar!

Change Happens

~with Moxie, my shadow

I’ve decided to stay home with baby and no return to work after 17 years.  Crazy!  I’m excited to have a new job at home and of course the dogs are thrilled.  Moxie is my shadow.  The dogs love are daily morning walks and seem to not mind that we added to our pack and the walk includes a stroller now.

I don’t want to miss out on your wonderful daily blogs.  I look forward to them every day.  

Happy Halloween! Chrissy

We are so happy you enjoy reading the OwyheeStar Weimaraner News Blog. Honestly–we would never have dreamed that it would take on a life of its own at the beginning. Here we are thousands of blogs later–years later and still going. We are ever so thankful to our fans, readers, and especially to the loyal OwyheeStar community.

Lulu and Lyla

~on our heels at all times

Lulu & Lyla are are on our heels at all times ( just like our last two Weimaraners)!  If we shower we had better make sure the rugs are down, if not we better lay down our clothes so they can keep an eye on us while we shower!  This surely must be a sign that we are good dog parents as they cannot get enough of us!  Wish our twin almost 14 year old girls felt the same!

Thank you for these faithful, loving and furry kids!
Jeff, Heidi, Emma & Ella

For those who like their personal space or privacy, we say keep on traveling toward a different breed. The Velcro Weimar is all about being in your space–touching you, having your things. Oh yeah! You Weimlovers know what we are talking about–don’t even think about the Weimaraner.
