~From Wrangel, Alaska
My husband and I bought a long haired weim from you in 2012 from Millee & Stackhouse’s litter. She is a beautiful 8 year old who is a huge part of our family. We also have another 9 year old husky mix. We unfortunately lost our 14 year old short haired Weim last year and it was a very sad time for our family. We are now ready to add another beautiful little weim pup to our family of five. Our three children, my husband, and I have fallen in love with this breed and appreciate how thorough and great you were to work with in the past. We would love to purchase another pup from you.
Our current 8 year old weim, Millee, had a little more energy from the get go but is such a lover. They are such loyal, beautiful dogs. We look forward to adding another Weim to our family.
We are thrilled to see Millee (named for her Mama) is doing well. We look forward to working with you again.
Just a quick note to give you an update on our awesome pack of Idaho Owyheestar Weim’s!
Our Fuzzy (longhair) girl (Charlie Mae) has become the “princess” of the house and is our pride and joy best behaved and most sweet Weim. She and my Daughter (Elle) have become very close since Ace won’t stay in Elle’s room, she decided to see if Charlie would stay and sure enough, the two of them are now night buddies and Charlie sleeps with Elle EVERY night, it’s so sweet. Charlie is 8 now (as of Oct 2020) and still doing GREAT!
Ace (our longhair blue boy) is just over 2 now (as of Dec 2020) and has REALLY (finally) started to mellow some and become a very sweet boy. He reminded us of our friend Holly’s Maverik (from all her blog updates) in a big way!
I’m so happy to report that although he’s a ball crazy nut, we just LOVE him to pieces and he’s become a great companion for my wife at night since her dog (Charlie Mae) is in sleeping with Elle.
Ace marches to his own beat and knows what he wants and when he wants it, he isn’t easy to convince otherwise. Often at night he decides to sleep on the couch early in the night and join us in bed sometime in the early hours (I think he gets cold).
Mando (our newest addition, shorthair blue boy) is almost 1 (turns 1 in March 2021) was the SWEETEST puppy ever, but has for-SURE moved into the terrible teens! We have never had a more cat stalking Weim, he follows our poor old cat around the house relentlessly! He hasn’t ever hurt her, but the look in his eyes when the stalking is going on makes you wonder! If he does bite at her (mostly gentle), she holds her own, but it doesn’t curb his interest one bit.
Mando has gotten into digging holes and chewing up the grass in the dog yard also. He’s as mischievous a pup now as any we have had (and that’s saying something considering the benchmark Ace set!). As I recall, you warned us that he was going to be a handful, and as sweet as a little guy as he was, we thought perhaps he was going to prove you wrong, but NOPE, he’s exactly as you warned. Mando is all boy and he’s a daddy’s puppy for-sure. He always gets on the couch and flops on-top of me when it’s mellow time. He sleeps ALL NIGHT – EVERY NIGHT under the covers next to me. Recently I’ve decided to put him on a lead tied to me when around the house and remove some of his freedoms to curb some of his more destructive antics… His favorite naughty thing to do recently is to find something he knows he’s not supposed to have and take it out to the dog yard to destroy it (for us to find at some later date). Our dog yard isn’t in a spot that’s easy to bust him being naughty (and he knows it!). Having said all that, I couldn’t love the little dude more, he’s such a sweetie and I think we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, he’s minding better as he gets older and is doing well on the lead.
There’s the quick (not so short) update on our pack! Thanks for all you do for us and our fur-babies!
The love of the Weimaraner brought us together, and we have known each other for a while. I must admit that our slogan “Where Beautiful Friendships Begin” is true, but we also market a bit of trouble. For all those who write us that they want a Weimaraner that will act a certain way, I caution that no one ever can be sure what quirk or quandary might arise. Surely these beautiful creatures will put their paw on a button and make you question your choice. (Haha) Thank you to this wonderful, loyal, fun, and Weim-loving family. We appreciate you taking the time to get something to us for our blog–and for the love, you pour into each four-legged family member.
It's Been Awhile
~Zoey and Magnum
We are doing well on Camano Island. We got 12 little chicks the other day. Zoey was going crazy wondering what the noise was in the big box. Well (mom) me decided to show her. Zoey was then very intent on watching them and probably thinking to herself “how do I get one of those birdies”. Lol.
Our boy Magnum is doing well and they have a golden retriever friend Chloe who also lives with us now. All this and a 6 year old at home is a busy day. But it is also a blessing in these days of chaos.
Hello, Monica–we are so happy to hear from you. You are coping well with the craziness it seems.
~Christmas at the Spight Residence
A Bit Revised….
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go;
Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Charlie Mae all wrapped up
the prettiest sight to see is her face looking at me
And right in front of the family Christmas tree.
From Will and Jill some time back..
You can tell it’s Christmas time at the Spight house!!
🎄. We got Charlie Mae 5 years ago just before Christmas and she wouldn’t leave the lights alone when I was trying to fix them and I wrapped her up. Been a traditional activity ever since!

Princess Charlie Mae and Charlie Mae and Murphy
Will, I still remember when you asked if we had a Weimaraner available thinking smooth coat. We had Charlie Mae not promised, and when those two gals met her– we know the rest of the story. Many years later you have three Weims–two Longhairs. I suppose that speaks volumes about Charlie’s effect on your Weim addiction. Thanks for your loyalty to us as well as your friendship.
Bad Hair Day
~ Or Not
Daisy’s parents say, “she has the best personality” I think she makes them laugh a lot — and is a good snuggle-girl. What else does the soul need?
Maybe this brings a smile to you. I know it does to me. Possibly Daisy had a bit of help to achieve the look, but who cares?!? There are a few Weimlovers that groan every time we post features the Longhair, but others celebrate the fun, the joy, and the look.
~Sharing a Bed
We have two Weims from you. Both from Stackhouse. One long hair and one sliver.
They love the snow.! One swims and the other one just likes to Wade in the water. You can see they are both lap dogs.
People ask us how we can let these adorable pups go after pouring our heart and soul into raising them–and here is the answer. We do it for others, and to give each pup the best possible life.
People like you make all the work worth doing–thank you for the update. We appreciate you!
~Like this One for Ducky
Dear Ducky–it is hard to believe it has been five years since you left OwyheeStar to live in sunny California. The last update was about a year ago–click here if you want to read it.
There were a lot of other OwyheeStar Weimaraner birthdays on Facebook. I would try to list a few here, but I will let their humans do that if they wish. Otherwise, I would for sure, miss a few. Happy birthday–Ducky!
We absolutely do love her! She sure is crazy but she is amazing
No Water 4 Me
The funniest story I think I have about her is the first time we took her swimming in the lake. We thought she would love the water! Well turns out she can’t swim at all and she isn’t too fond of the water either. Her body went straight vertical with her head above the water and her feet straight down with her arms splashing up and down! We were right off the dock and in shallow water but she didn’t know what to do! Her brother is a German short hair that loves to swim and loves the water but she won’t get deeper then her belly!
She is the center of her little universe. We wouldn’t change a thing.
Thank you! Ashley, Boise, Idaho
Thank you, Ashley, for sharing this funny story about Paisley. I am glad she is dear to your heart–quirks and all.
For those wondering–it can take a bit of knack to get your Weimaraner water-friendly. Even if they swam at OwyheeStar, they might balk when you present water. We have written a previous blog on getting your Weimaraner to swim–there are some excellent pointers–click here.
In the Limelight
~Our Charlie Mae Shines
Well, that is interesting. You might remember Charlie Mae as the girl who wears the Christmas lights every December. Here she is in all her glory–, isn’t this spectacular? Oh–what more can we say?

Oh, the places we have gone!
Charlie Mae and Murphy–Part Two
Both Weim’s are happy and healthy, every now and then Charlie seems to get an upset stomach (we can hear it gurgling) and she isn’t as interested in food, but we’ve had luck so far with a 1/2 of a table of Pepto Bismol, some plain vanilla yogurt, and raw pumpkin (we rotate between the various items) and that seems to help settle her stomach and she is back to normal. Otherwise, both are in excellent health and are MUCH loved!
We continue to read your blog articles and love to see all the new puppies that get placed and the common antics shared by all these awesomely mischievous puppies we all love so much!
Happy Holidays and lots of love to you all! The Spight Family
We had a fun full summer with lots of camping (8 trips!), ending at the Oregon coast (a couple of the enclosed pictures are from that trip). Murphy didn’t like the humid cool weather, so our daughter put her jacket on him so he would stop shivering at one point.
What a life! I love going to the Oregon Coast. Thank you, for giving them the best life possible.
