Adventures

~ 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,
Jenny

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.

Bayou

~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 likes to play with the cat.

Ellie shares the sofa, too!

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.

Grooming

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.

Pretending

     ~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

Breeder Comment

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)

Cat Problems

Ellie’s Life

     ~No Space Between

Davidson's Ellie

Ellie continues to have cat problems.  She can barely sleep!
She also has a great nose and a soft mouth.  I know this because she brings us pheasants from the cornfield.  I tell her to let them go and the pheasants fly off back to the corn, only a little worse for wear.

Breeder Comment

Ellie has an amazing life. She enjoys all the comfort of home even though she is required to share her space with the cat. This just cracks me us.
I think it is safe to say that most of the OwyheeStar Weims have a soft mouth approach to their prey–well unless it is the house siding, etc. (Haha)

The Boys

Never Boring

~Ever Entertaining

 

IMG_1733Sorry Pops, we need both rafts cause Coopers getting bigger, you can sit on the steps….

Never a dull moment. The addition of Coop has sparked new interest in Luke and our lives. We are gearing up for many new adventures as we navigate selling our home, moving to an apartment a few blocks away and then transitioning to our place in the desert eventually to retire. Our boys have proven time and time again just how versatile they can be and remind us that we should be too and to not take things so seriously.

The boys focus on the fetch regardless of sirens, fireworks wind and waves…

IMG_2100We had the gray ghost, the blue, then there were long hairs ,,, what that a polka dot Weim?

IMG_2207These guys are getting comfortable sharing whatever they are dealt,,,

IMG_2197They will take whatever they are given,,,, guess I sleep at the foot of the bed

As always Shela I hope you and Cliff are doing well. We so appreciate the care and kindness you 2 put into everything you do for these adorable creatures and those whom you guide through the rearing process.

 

Love and Light ~ Cal

We so appreciate the update with all the photos, etc. Thank you, for the exceptionally kind words and endorsement. Of course, we have known each other for a very long time–all due to our Weimaraner connection. Who knew this would become a thing? And, indeed it is as well as being entirely life-changing. We would have never guessed. We are glad the whole experience blesses you.

A bit delayed

Bayou

~ At the Office

I know it has been a long time but I’ve been meaning to email you for a while!
Bayou is doing fantastically! I now work in an office at a design firm and she comes in with me all the time and absolutely loves it (and so does everyone else). She loves doing just about anything as long as she is around her people. When she has to be alone, spends her days napping and sunbathing. 

She’s honestly the best and I can’t imagine my life without her. Thanks so much for making it possible to have this wonderful dog in my life.

Breeder Comment

What fun to hear from you! We are delighted to see and hear the news that Bayou is well-socialized and a fantastic family member. Of course, this is exactly what everyone dreams will happen. The Weimaraner can be challenging–isn’t it worth it?!?
Thank you, for thinking of us as well as being a great Weim-loving family.
