Charlie Mae

~Christmas at the Spight Residence

Charlie Mae Every Christmas –Yup!

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!

Breeder Comment

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

What are you talking about?

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?

Breeder Comment

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.

Are We not Adorable? Bella (Gray) and Daisy the Blue Longhair

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.

Breeder Comment

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!

Birthdays Happen

~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!

Paisley

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.

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?

Charlie Mae and Murphy–Part Two

Are You Talking About Me?


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!

Shopping is Part of the Plan

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. 

Oh, the places we have gone!


Charlie Mae and Murphy–Part One

     ~ Home For the Holidays

Again, Shela, I am Wrapped up for Christmas


It’s been TOO long since my last update to you!  We are having a wonderful Holiday Season at the Spight house.  Charlie Mae and Murphy are doing great and have fully taken to their roles as our Fur Children!  Charlie is now 6, and Murphy is 5.

Shared Covers


They sleep with us EVERY night, Murphy prefers to be full-on under the covers (usually rotates to have his face sticking out at some point).  Charlie likes to rotate between being partially under the covers and out of the covers (I think she gets too hot).  The movement back and forth drives Jill a little crazy, but she still likes to snuggle with them throughout the night also, so they remain as permanent bed companions it seems.

Happy Holidays and lots of love to you all! The Spight Family

We are ever so happy to know your Weim-loving family. It is fabulous to know that both Charlie Mae and Murphy are doing well–at least doing Weimar type things. (Haha)

We loved seeing your annual Christmas Tree Lighting with Charlie Mae. I saw someone copied you–it was a Facebook post a few days ago. Don’t worry Charlie Mae–they cannot be considered the same as you–a Christmas Poster Girl. 

Ducky

Mindy Reports

Brown's Ducky_2845
Ducky came into my life on his 8 week birthday.  My first Weimaraner, Ted, was a silver grey so I decided to go with a blue this time around.  People often ask me how I came up with the name Ducky.  I have a litany of answers:  he was born in Oregon, he was #7 of 9 in his litter – so  a lucky duck, he waddled a bit like a duck as a puppy, I’m Mindy Brown and there’s a famous fashion designer in NYC named Duckie Brown – but most important, I just liked the name, I found it unique and it fit him to a tee!  He has nicknames like Duskster, Duck Duck, Ducky Brown, The Baby, King of the Hill, my Angel, etc. but mostly he’s just plain ole Ducky.  He’s also my Hunter.  That hunting lineage is definitely at the forefront of his personality.  He’s always looking for something to hunt down – whether it be a fly in my kitchen or a squirrel running across my back wall.  He also thinks he’s a cat as he can leap and scale a 10’ wall.  He’s not so ball crazy as my last Weim, but he definitely likes to play – only problem is – he destroys all of his toys.  He’s definitely an elite athlete.  He loves to go to the park and play frisbee – loves to run on the beach and loves to go for rides in the car.  He likes to bask in the sun and lounge after his off leash hikes in an unincorporated area of Palos Verdes. He loves to play with other dogs and is as fast as lightning – always the leader of the pack.  He prefers to have a part of his body touching me and usually has a shoe, slipper or piece of my clothing tucked under his snout.  He likes to sit wherever I am and often times stretches a body part on me.  He’s also very loquacious – as he’s always talking to me – especially when I’m cooking in the kitchen or working on the computer.  But above everything – he loves loves loves to eat!  This dog has one mighty appetite and loves his fruits and vegetables.

I honestly didn’t think I could ever find an equal replacement to Ted, but after 3 years and several trips to Sun Valley – I put all my faith in Shela and Cliff – and my prayers were answered.  I had only two requirements:  a large blue male – and sure enough, I got that and much more.  Above and beyond all of his other great traits, he’s the SWEETEST and SMARTEST dog and an amazing companion!

Thanks, Mindy for choosing OwyheeStar. We appreciate the fact that you have stayed in touch. Most of all we appreciate the life you have made with Ducky. Thanks for this fun update. I know everyone is going to enjoy it.

Socks

Repurposed socks

      ~ Fun with Charlie Mae

Spight's Longhair1355_n

The Game–the way things work!

This continues to be her favorite game. Grab a sock from wherever she can get it – dirty clothes/clean clothes/from a drawer, it matters not!!! Once she successfully finds one, then she comes and finds us to make sure we see she’s got one.

It’s then time for the chase. This is where we run around the house after her, eventually, she jumps on our bed and with some negotiating she will drop it… It’s SO cute (most of the time), if you don’t co-operate with her plan, she’s been known to take out her frustration on the found sock… We just love this big personality pup!

We are in the middle of the Longhair discussion on the blog. It seems right to showcase one today. What better thing to have this from Will and Jill?

Yesterday, Charlie Mae was on the blog (her silhouette), but there is a lot more to the Longhair than that feathering. It has been some time since I talked about the Longhair Weimaraner. There are a very few OwyheeStar clients that don’t care for the look of the Longhair; however, by and large, most really love the idea–even if they don’t embrace getting one. Not everyone is going to like the same thing. That being said–much of what we have achieved is due to the Longhair DNA pool. Those who voice the loudest objections are often the recipient of the benefits.

Your family are adamant Weimaraner lovers–you have had nearly every look available except the Blue Longhair. We know Ellie, your daughter, hopes to one day get a second Longhair. Cliff and I still remember when you contacted us, and the only thing we had available was Charlie Mae. You met us to see what they were like and soon we heard that you wanted to add her to your family. It makes us happy to know you enjoy this lovely girl. Of course, you still have Murphy–the traditional Blue Weimaraner. He is much-loved as well. Thank you, for being a faithful and devoted OwyheeStar Weim-loving family. Here ( https://owyheestarweimaranersnews.com/2016/03/06/murphy/ ) is the last time Murphy, your Blue Boy appeared on the blog.
