Shela and Cliff, Thank-you for being so thorough with your client only page and the puppy packet.  I feel I had the website memorized by the time January 4th finally came. We are SO enjoying this “honeymoon” period with “Miranda” (#10 long hair, pink collar).   

We had an 11 hour drive home and she slept on my lap the entire way. That quiet time only lasted one day, lol!

I’m assuming you’ve worked with potty training and the “sit” command as we are having more successes than failures in the house.  AND she’s rang the jingle bells by the door 3X so far this morning to go out and potty!
For the last 2 nights she has settled in nicely at bedtime in a crate next to our bed.

What a sweetheart!  I feel so fortunate to have found Owyheestar Weimaraner’s.  The time and dedication that you and Cliff put into your dogs is much appreciated.  
Gotta go, she just rang the bells!

It sounds as if you are off to an excellent start. We love that Miranda is ringing the bells. Of course, before long, she will discover that ringing the bells gets her outside for fun as well as to go potty. (Haha)


~ First Christmas

I was so worried how Knobby would act around the Christmas tree. The decision was made to put up an undecorated tree for about a week just get him used to it. He was curious but didn’t mess with it. We decorated the tree, paying special attention to the type of ornaments on the bottom, just in case. The stockings were hung and cherished decor was put out. I am happy to report no “Weim Crimes”, although he really likes the standing Santa. He may have knocked Santa over a few times, no harm, no foul.🎄🎅❄Now we are looking forward to 2020 and a 1st birthday party in March. 🎂🎉

We love hearing how you managed the first Christmas with Knobby.

~ Celebrates Two Years

Today we celebrate Remy’s 2nd birthday! She’s still enjoying being our running companion and learning new tricks. Her favorite game with the family is hide and seek all over the house. We all hide and she is quick to find us, we can’t trick her.

She is spoiled and at night she often positions herself on the couch upright – I think she sometimes thinks she is a human. 

We adore her!
Happy New Year – Haley

Thanks for sending us the update –letting us post it on the blog.


It has been so long since we have reached out. Alex and I just wanted to update you on Griffey and as always say “Thank you” for such a special member of our family. 

We recently welcomed 2 new baby girls into our lives and Griffey is still adjusting as the older brother but starting to understand that there IS enough love to go around between all three of them (he is very much still a puppy himself). Griffey is the best running partner (Alex and I are training for a half marathon) and as we have learned over the past few years… he either gets a long run to start the morning or a solid 30-60 minutes of retrieving at the dog park and he is set for a “less” mischievous day…hah. Griffey is an amazingly loyal companion, always Sticking to our side when we are out hiking and scouting. He cuddles from 5pm at night and sleeps in longer than anyone else in the morning… he will even sneak into the guest room if someone is visiting and just to cuddle and nap a little longer. We Are blessed to have him.

Congratulations on the twin baby girls–what an event. I love that Griffey is doing well with all the changes. Most of all–thank you for updating us on Griffey. We are delighted, along with our readers. Thank you!


~Update from Captain Rod

A smart trainer/breeder once told me that the best life insurance you can give your dog is to train him well so all of your friends and relatives will love him and want him if something happens to his owner. If something ever happened to me, my friends would fight over who gets Sunny.

One of the many things I love most about my OwyheeStar blue Weimaraner is he absolutely loves everybody from little kids to adults.  He’s not just attached to me, he’s happy to be on a new lap from a new friend.

Around Christmas every year we go up to Lake Tahoe to visit friends and enjoy the snow. My two friends also have two labradors that Sunny has fun wrestling with.   When he’s bounding through the deep snow in the forest, he’s truly in his element.    On the way home, we visited two more friends that have 2 very sweet and high drive hunting dogs that he met.  The rules were a bit more flexible in this household, and the dogs and humans dined together.  Sunny gets along with other dogs very well, but if he’s mounted, he will object with some growling and barking.  Can’t blame him there.

Sunny and I have come to some agreements a long time ago, and he’s flexible in various situations.  He will stay on his bed if necessary and behave quietly, or if the rules are loose, he’ll party with other dogs as crazy as ever.  He’ll happily ride in the backseat on long trips for as long as necessary.  He heels off leash, and runs free on walks when it’s safe.  His training of me is almost complete I’ve been told.

You may or may not remember Sunny’s earliest beginning on the catamaran with Rod–click here. I have often dreamed of sailing with Sunny–and I suppose it is possible ( ), but we are pretty much tied to OwyheeStar for now. It makes is very happy to know Sunny continues to delight others and is a great companion for Rod. Happy New Year to you, Sunny, and your humans, too.


I’m still in the backyard. Waiting to get all of my shots. Will it ever end.

I have found all of the lost balls, sticks, dug a number of holes and made

new paths in the rose bushes. I can’t wait to see the big world that I know 

is waiting for me to explore.

Well, Brady, your Mom, and Dad are being extra vigilant. They must adore you. You are looking good–thanks for writing to us.


~Celebrates Her First Birthday

Charlee my little shadow turns one year old

She’s doing very well! She is my little shadow when I go out to take care of the farm animals. I still am planning to shed train her, but need her without accompaniment when we train. I just haven’t found the time…isn’t that always the case!

We love her. Thank you for breeding lovely Weimies! Just wanted to send you a picture of our little cutie, and her friend, on her first birthday!

We hope all is well with you and your family. 

Happy New Year!

Kristina and Tom

Cliff and I appreciate you remembering us on her birthday. We are happy that you love her and that she has adjusted –and functions well as your shadow. We hope you stay in touch.

Christmas Wish

~For Hank

Hank has been asking Santa for a little brother or sister, and this year he is going to get his wish!

In a few days, Hank’s little sister will be joining the family. Before she arrives, he is getting ready by watching Mom get the crate set up and messing up all the blankets. Hank will teach his sister everything, like how to hike, how to play, and how to get along with Dagny the cat!

It is an exciting time waiting for a new Longhair sister to arrive. We know you have been patiently waiting for us to have a litter. And, it came just in time to call it a Christmas baby. Even better–she doesn’t come home until after the holiday hubbub. Perfect!

Sunbathing in Texas

~ Winter activities

We’re finally enjoying our “winter” – cooler temps and no humidity. We have cold nights around 40’ and warm sunny days. I moved a bed out to the back porch and Winchester is delighted. I leave the door open because we don’t have flies now. The other two are usually hunting the pesky squirrel and Winchester joins in as soon as he sees fit. 

Love y’all! M

Breeder Comment

Well, the warming trend at OwyheeStar pales by comparison–we will take it, though. Daytime temperatures in the high 40s sound delightful to us–whereas our freezing temperatures would not suit your local crowd. We love that squirrel troubles the kids–it is very entertaining.
