~First We Had So much fun
We took Zeus to the coast today for his first day trip. He steered clear of the water but loved the sand and wide open spaces to run. He loved it! Then slept the entire way home!
We are so happy to learn that Zeus is doing well–and how we would have loved to be there for the trip to the Oregon Coast.
~Allie’s New GSP Pup
Here is some pictures of introducing a new family member. Some of these are Skye and some are Haze and then there is my old man Aussie. They are all being introduced to Allie’s new puppy GSP.
They all get along. Haze is the one looking away trying to show Sparta GSP to watch for birds! Skye is sharing her toys nicely with the puppy by dropping them and teasing her to even dare to try to get it! Keller (Aussie) Sparta things he is a fluffy chew toy. ~ Jean
It is fabulous to see the OwyheeStar Weims being so polite with Allie’s new puppy. You have done great things with these girls–we thank you!
~ Current Status–Change on the Horizon
I just wanted to send you an update with some pictures/videos since it’s been a little while. This week I’m getting ready to make the move to Tennessee. My mom and I drive the UHaul down next Saturday! Very excited but also a little nervous haha.
Taun seems to know something is up and has been sticking very close at all times. Here’s a picture of him on the end table in the living room…he’s not exactly supposed to be on there but it was cute so I got a pic.
We’ve been going on lots of morning walks and he reminds me in the morning if I’m not up quick enough. He also comes the barn lot and really loves it when there’s some puddles to splash in.
The puppies are inseparable as you can see, although Bella yells at Bacchus quite a lot for going in her crate. They absolutely love to carry sticks around together outside (usually the same stick between the two of them).
I’m really looking forward to exploring options with you guys for getting an adult dog in need of a new home in the near future, of course since these dogs don’t come along every day I know there may not be an exact timeline.
I hope all is well with you and Cliff!
All the best, Grace
If you are confused, Grace (Laura and Jon’s daughter) is moving away from her family. It is a significant change, and once settled, she hopes to get an OwyheeStar Weimaraner to join her in Tennessee. The Three OwyheeStar resident Weims are picking up that change is in the wind.
~Our Newest Family Member
We have been so blessed to call Bruno a family member since February 2019. In these 5 months, he has pushed EVERY boundary and tested as much patience as possible. Just when one thinks there is nothing left, he climbs up next to us and snuggles as only a Weimaraner can do. All is forgiven and we move on to the next day.
This puppy is the most dominant we have had to date of the 4 we’ve trained in the past. He is a natural hunter and loves to pick up the scents on our property, searching for the abundance of bunnies, raccoons and skunks we have available to the point of waking us up at 1:30 AM to go out so he can pick up the scent. He also follows Ollie around the house, copying his household 3 year old Weimaraner brother, but he seems to feel he can do things better and only Bruno should be pet and loved!
He has the sweetest personality and is great with the kids but seems to be weary of strangers although we have friends and family over regularly. That is a new thing for us as we’ve never had a Weim that wasn’t excited to meet new people. We wouldn’t trade him for the world and thank you so much for doing such an amazing job with this pup! You are our “go to” from now on!
Thank you! The Gervings
We are ever so happy to hear the news–and see Bruno is doing well.
~ At Two-Years
Hope you and your readers enjoy these fun shots and videos of Berkley, our big two year old. She’s so much fun.
This when we went camping at Lake Kachess. Stephan would take her on the paddle board and say, “where’s Amanda” and she would jump ship and swim to me…2 times a day, in addition to a lot of fetch!
Enjoy! — Amanda
What a fabulous swimming Weimaraner. We love seeing the fur family member in the middle of family events. Thank you!
I have a title for your blog! OwyheeSTARS and STRIPES!! Not sure if there is anything to the dark stripe on the weim but Hazes is very prevalent. Just a thought don’t know if you have other dogs out there like this or not.
I think that with the blue color this is more noticeable. There is typically a different pattern down the backbone–and some variation in color. As the Weimaraner ages, this is also true across the crown of their head.
~At the Beach
Lily spends this time of year at the beach. Sometimes we have to travel for our son and our dog sitter takes all the dogs to the beach. Lily was scared of the ocean last year, but she has worked her way into the water. She absolutely loves her time with our dog sitter.
The whole family runs the dog sitter service. Their two kids help and Lily is so loved. It is so comforting to have a place for her when I have to travel.
The best part, I get back a happy, exhausted Weim. We all know a tired Weimaraner is the best! She is such a blessing to us. She fills our heart with love and our days with laughter.
It looks like Lily is the perfect kind of tired. With your life-demands we can see how this is the perfect solution. Thank you, for loving her so much.
~ The Adventure Begins
–From Larry July 23, 2019
And the adventure starts. No more sleeping in —- up at 4:30 or 5:00 in the AM. I have to go to bed at 9 or 10 at the latest. You and Cliff sure know how to pick a dog for me. This guy just wants to be with me and that is want I wanted. Brady was great on the way home. I think that he will be easy to house break, I just have watch him like a hawk. I went out with him at 4:30 am, he went pee and came right back into the house. But he would not lay down to go back to sleep. So We went out again, he did a # 2 this time, back in to the house, went to sleep this time. I just have to think like a pup and give him more time. He will tell me what he wants, I just have to pick up on his clues.
We have made it through a couple of day and nights. Brady is working overtime on our training. Ila is having a time with Brady. He has attacked her shoes and bit her on the arm, the blood was flowing.
I know everyone tells you how smart their weim is – its true I think that all of the OwyheeStar weims or very smart. The only thing left is to train the owners so they are as smart as their weim. ( Are you smarter than as eight week old weim ? ).
Ila and I want to thank you for all that you do to provide these great pups.
You might remember Reno (a long time OwyheeStar Blog favorite). Unfortunately, Larry lost Reno–it was a devastating and swift loss of the worst kind. It was a rare bone cancer–took him quick. The grief is unthinkable, but no one (human or critter) is immune. For a goodly number of years, no OwyheeStar ever died of cancer–I wish it were still so.
I am sure you and Ila will get this pup raised–but there is the stuff of raising pups for sure. The shark-biting baby (and older skin is the worst). I am sure you got the tips I sent to you along with everyone else that has a Bernie X Boone pup–on puppy biting. Thank you, Larry–for your loyalty and the fabulous update (with photos). As always –your photos are great.
~12 Years Young
Emma is 12 years young I don’t have any secrets on how she has been able to stay active and young at heart other than her DNA, lots of love.
Alice (our second OwyheeStar) and Emma is a very special girls to our family. We are overjoyed that Emma is still so healthy. We thank you so much for our amazing best friends ♥️♥️♥️We love them so much We will continue to update Thank you again for your blogs too!
Thank you guys. This is especially good news–12 good years is excellent. We hope for more of the same.
~ Big News from Leadville, CO
This weekend we competed in NACSW nosework in Leadville, CO at 10,151 feet. It was an interior specialty trial – our first one. It consisted of 4 interior searches in the Leadville elementary school. Luey excelled and titled – he searched beautifully!!
