Sky (part three)
Most days she comes to work with me at the bike shop and greets customers who all love her except that one guy who threatened to cut her with a knife. One picture is us wearing matching jerseys at a “doggie dash” event.
She is much loved and well cared for, too. Sky gets her teeth brushed.
Thank you for everything you do with Sky and for sharing the photos and videos of her life. We look forward to working with you again soon.
Sky (part two)
Here’s some video links and pics.The video is amusing because she seems to be avoiding getting wet despite the 100 degree temperature that day, but she will not hesitate to charge into the surf at the beach or lake to get her ball.
Hot temperatures are around the corner, and the idea of a cool dip is a good one. Weims–they can be so weird about things. I love that she gets into the surf, and I laughed that she plays with the water in the pool.
Sky (part one)
Sky loves to go hiking, snowshoeing and trail running with my bicycle.
I trained her to run next to me or behind me with the bike.
Sky still goes running or walking with Michelle pretty much every day but since her hip has begun to bother her lately, I no longer take her on bike rides, long hikes or high speed runs. She still wants to go but she pays for it later. It seems stiff after she has been laying down a while but loosens up after she moves a while.
Sadly, large breed dogs, just like their human counterpart, do wear out their parts. It is remarkable that Sky still exercises, but you are wise to keep it a bit less extreme. We love this video of her.
~ With Willow and Ruger
It’s been a crazy week with my grandma’s funeral and Willow getting into the garbage. Fortunately, Grandma is in heaven with Grandpa, Willow didn’t have to have surgery and I’m a little smarter for the scare.
Willow and Ruger love going on adventures, from bikejoring to riding the quad or chasing bunnies out of the garden at home to snuggling up next to or on top of the other. Willow brings a smile to my face whether I’m at work and glance at my desktop photo of her sleeping with her tongue stuck out or looking through pictures of the adventures of hunting shed and bikejoring.
Ruger lives in a home where someone is home all day long, takes him for long runs along the river and has small children who adore him. Both are excellent representatives of the quality dogs coming from OwyheeStar.
Mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you,
Well, thanks for sharing this beautiful update with us. I am glad you have the Weimars to keep you company–and to share so many adventures.
~Another Blue OwyheeStar living in California
Hope you are doing well! Bayou is still doing wonderfully and is the absolute best as you can see in the pics attached!
I’m actually reaching out to you today on behalf of my mom. Her Weimaraner, Hazel (not from Owyheestar), passed away about a year ago and she has taken to trying to steal Bayou away from me. Would love to know what your availability is and also pass along the application to my mom!
Thanks so much!
The vast majority of our Weimaraners are placed with repeat clients, or come from direct referrals–to friends, family, or neighbors. We appreciate your loyalty, and we look forward to working with your mother.
Boise Foothill Adventures
~Cat Tales and Whatnot
Ellie is still having adventures in the Boise foothills (she’s good at finding chukar and quail for fun) and she loves kayaking/rafting trips.
She’s the queen over all the cats as well.
We are happy to hear that Ellie is still doing well–especially that she is the Queen over all the cats–despite what they report.
Not All That Long Ago
Luke and Coop
The boys are doing great! Hope you are too…
Here are a couple stoic Christmas poses, they love the photo attention and will sit until you get it… Ha Ha.
They have become best buds, well at least Coop thinks so…
I’d say this is another successful placement by the two of you, we couldn’t have asked for more.. ~ Cal
Thanks once again, Cal, for another great update. Sorry–it took a while to get posted. I am sure everyone is loving the photos especially the Christmas light thing.
Cat and Mouse
~Without the real Mouse
Ellie has always had a funny relationship with her cat. We love how you keep us up to date on her antics as well as their relationship. Friends come along in unexpected ways–or they don’t always look as expected.
More than a bath
Thank you, for always thinking of us Cal. We appreciate the extra effort you put into these updates. We are tickled pink your two boys are well-adjusted, happy, and thriving.
~No Cats Allowed
Ellie loves to rest on the couch by the fire with her blanket covering her. Unfortunately, so do the cats. The black cat likes to “knead dough” on the blanket, especially if Ellie is under it. This really annoys Ellie. In this picture, Ellie is pretending the cats aren’t there.
All the Best, Bob
Thank you, Bob, for sharing Ellie’s dilemma. I am sure she is not the first to cope with unwanted attention in this manner. You’d think though, that she would relish the idea of the kitty-kneading away. What a silly girl she is–and those cats make sure they are never too far away. (Haha)
