Trigger and Mom on the trail again. 

Natalie Writes–I used to mourn my running days. But today, I won’t take a second for granted! The beautiful sunshine, my four-legged company, and the fact that I can walk. 

 

School

Snow Day–Not!

16423022_10211961114248274_3550556081216032729_oTrigger loves snow days and taking his sisters to school almost as much. Everyone is buckled in for safety.

There must have been a record number of days that schools closed due to snowfall. At one point I heard someone say they had been out of school (including Christmas break) for 20 days–that was some time back.

 

AKC Reunite

12118694_10207854403023060_2111145103347060670_nThe Importance of registering your microchip cannot be overstated. Halloween saw a Boise man’s dog end up at the shelter. He struggled to get his dog home. Click here to read his story. It ended well, but we want to remind all our clients to get their microchip registered.

Today Trigger is an integral part of his family’s life. He goes on most vacations and spends a lot of time hanging out. There are walks with Mom too!

What If???

Your Beloved Weimaraner Went Missing?

Would You Get Them Back?

Dear OwyheeStar Client,

IMG_0077Question–Did you register your pet’s AKC Reunite Microchip with AKC?

Almost two years ago we upgraded to this fabulous program called AKC Reunite. Anytime after spring 2014, your OwyheeStar Weimaraner Puppy came home with the AKC Reunite Microchip installed There was also paperwork in your packet to help you register that microchip.  If you have not registered the AKC Reunite Microchip with the AKC Reunite Organization we urge you to do so.

Cliff is aware of the number of chips registered, but not to whom they were registered. If you have lost your paperwork just have your Vet office scan for the microchip and use the number to get them registered. Having them associated with the AKC Reunite Program might pay off in ways you never dream. Please read on about Trigger’s recent experience.

Here he is on his way home after we got him back!

Thank you, thank you thank you for microchipping your pups before they leave your home. Our Trigger is now safe at home. Our daughter accidently left.our gate open and we couldn’t find him. So relieved to get a text saying our pet has been found. What a blessing. I don’t know what we would’ve done. We all cried when we picked him up. They think a female is in heat and that’s why he took off. Time to invest in an invisible fence since the vet suggested waiting to neuter him till he’s a year old. Whew. Crisis averted thanks to Owyheestar!

Do You Want to Know More?

I registered him with the AKC reunite with the paperwork you sent home with him. The humane society scanned him and my info came up. He wasn’t in their database, but he is now so if it happens again, they will have him.

The AKC reunite is who sent me a notification that he was found and gave me a number to call. The humane society also called me. So I had two different people  helping him get home. Yes!  Please use our story on the blog so it will help others. ~ Natalie

Trigger Reflections

Trigger and Natalie

1934078_10208326494585054_6966091609562147943_nThink about how much happiness those pups will bring. I had tears in my eyes this morning as I lay in silence in yoga. They told us to go somewhere safe, think about something that brings us joy.  I immediately thought of trigger.  How he literally smiles when he sees me, funny things he does, walks we take together, butterflies he tries to catch, when his lips get hooked up on his tooth and how funny that looks. When he sits beside me and looks me in the eyes.  I could go on and on.  It’s been such a joy to have him. He completes my home and heart.

Thank you!  ~Natalie

Speaking of Nails

WP_20160803_20_20_45_ProHey guys, Geoff and Fallon here with Molly (Mouse x Blue). I have a real brief question for you regarding nail care. 

Do you guys have any tips for keeping these weim nails from doing any kind of breaking/fracturing? Molly, being the One-year-old weim she is, has been playing fetch with as much energy as ever. Every couple weeks she will get a good size sliver of nail try to break off or split down toward her paw.

WP_20160803_20_16_22_ProNone of them have been too severe, and none of them have slowed her down in the slightest. However, despite trimming them down fairly often in an attempt to prevent it, think just the sheer amount of speed they run and redirect with makes it easy for them to catch their nails on a piece of root or rock and break it.

Are there any particular methods you’ve used to combat nails from getting damaged in the past?

Breeder Comment

Thank you for the news of Molly. Sorry to hear you have some splintering going on with her nails. Good nail care is complex and sometimes hard to manage. Here are some general thoughts—not just for you. We hope something here helps.

  1. Nail and Skin are areas you might notice if something is lacking in the diet. We recommend a grain-free diet combined with the NuVet Supplement.
  2. There are products meant to protect the pads and nourish the nails. One of these is called Musher’s Secret.
  3. You might consider adding a teaspoon of coconut oil to the food once a day. It is excellent for the skin and nails. You could rub some into their paws as well.
  4. Make sure the nail clipper is high quality and sharp. A nail grinder is an option; however, there is a learning curve. A well-groomed nail is a must. You can take the Weimaraner to a groomer or your vet office to have a professional trim the nails.

Are You Covered?

20151222_173757[1]

Picked Up and on the way home.

Should the unthinkable happen–your Weimaraner gets lost, or runs aways are you covered? If you have an OwyheeStar puppy, they left here with a microchip. While that is all good and well, you need to enroll with the  AKC Reunite and get this chip registered to you. When the beloved “Trigger” got away from the yard through an unlatched gate, his return was imminent due to AKC Reunite. You can use the online form or possibly call them. Click Here to access that form. Your number is found on the OwyheeStar Health Record as well as the AKC Reunite pamphlet.

 

If you have another microchip–no problem, they will register your microchip too! Trigger was Lost, but he made it home again. We are all so very happy his parents had registered with AKC Reunite.

On Blog Last Thursday, we spoke about preparing in advance of the holiday. We hope you find this information useful and that your Weimaraner is sound-proofed before the 4th of July Holiday. If not, then we will discuss other options in a future blog coming soon.

Trigger on a better day long after his return

 

It’s Bentley

Bentley is all puppy, all day!

He loves to be right in the mix of things, no matter what’s going on. In the picture with him sitting next to his water bowl, he just finished his meal and is begging for more. He knows his meal times and even now will still stand by his empty bowl, just looking at you like, ‘you’re making dinner, it’s dinner time, where’s my dinner too?’ Lol!

He absolutely loves the boys and they love him too! There was the usual dominance battle in the beginning but he has learned his place and now will play very well with them and (mostly) listen to what they say. Bentley has had excellent health, so a huge thank you for setting him up for wellness when he was a pup! We recently had to get a couple pesky puppy teeth removed that were just not budging and starting to cause some irritation. He sailed through that well. Bentley very much wants to meet and be friends with everyone he sees, always so excited to see new places and faces. In fact, going to see the vet, even if it’s just to pick up more flea/heartworm meds, seems to be his favorite place so far!

Boot's Bentley-13.jpgThe picture of him laying in the sun was taken yesterday, on his first birthday. He enjoys his sunny spots so much. We are very much enjoying having him in our family!

Bentley Beginnings

 

Happy Birthday

Molly’s First 

~Sees a Big Change 

Been an exciting year, and we’re about 2700 miles and 1 year away from where we started. Molly turned 1 today (woohoo, Cinco de Mayo!), along with her litter mates, from Mousse’s last litter. About six months ago I accepted a job offer outside of New York City and we all took a three-day trip across the county. She is now an East Coast pup, but still wakes up at 5am every morning.

Though we are near the big city, we take her out about every weekend for a couple hour hike some trails, and occasionally to a dog park or doggy day care. Shes great around kids, new faces, and new dogs. She is as energetic as always, and every day we complements on her. Not many weims over here, but we are always sure to tell them where to find the best ones:) Shes about 55 lbs now, and we’re wondering about how much more to expect her to grow?
Snapped some pictures during our last park visit, and I always laugh when I see that natural pointing instinct kick in (see pic 1)
Hope you guys are well, I check your site/blog every week or so to see new puppy pics. We are considering getting her a big gray brother in a few years, and if we do I hope you guys are still in the weim biz!
Best wishes,
Geoff and Fallon

It is great that you were able to relocate easily. Clearly she is well socialized and adjusted. As for her size; she might grow a bit more. She also may not. I think what you see is what you get structurally. She might round out a bit. If she stayed well toned, you might not see any change. Oh–congratulations on the job.

Lap Dog

Trigger Doesn’t See the Problem

It seems like there is plenty of room in Nat’s shuttle; however, Trigger knows where he belongs. Who wants to sit alone when there is a comfortable and willing lap?

Natalie talks about Trigger12118694_10207854403023060_2111145103347060670_n

A little sunshine for you: every time I take Trigger out for a walk or run in the field, and watch him leap like a deer as he’s running, my heart skips a beat and I’m so grateful I found you and you found my Trigger for me!!!
