We figured Kula must be old enough to drive now, so we got him and Pilikia a van to drive around….. Brent
This is not the first Weim Crime pair at the wheel. You might remember Ilsa and Indi the two Blue sisters who borrowed the camper while Mom and Dad went on vacation. Pilikia and Kula Bleu’s ride is pretty upscale, but the idea has not changed. Thanks for the fabulous share!
You Might have seen this Look
The Weimaraner likes routine. Even better, they like to be in control. Ilsa’s family remembered her bed but where is the dinner. Seriously, a late meal is never a popular event. Who can put on the miffed look better than a Weim?
They had to learn how to be adaptable. If not, there are a lot of these looks. They don’t like their crate moved; their schedule changed, etc. It is as if they say, “you humans don’t get it.”
We do suggest that despite the put-off pouting experience, it is important that they learn how to adapt to change. If not, then worse things than the evil-eye glare are sure to happen. We are not speaking of the typical Weim mischief. Nor the freak-out (separation anxiety induced) you forgot me acting out behavior. We are talking more about the I am going to make-you-pay-thing. Oh, yes it happens. Some of you know exactly of what we speak. Dusty says, “Woof.”
Then The Two Blue Sisters
Four years ago we rescued this beautiful girl–a sister to our first OwyheeStar. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. When Cliff and Shela let us know they might get her back, we asked for the first chance to adopt her. We had met her and her mother on several occasions at the dog park, etc. It has been a beautiful, entertaining, and wacky journey.
Ilsa and Indi
You might remember this from Facebook, or not. 25 Abandoned Places in Oregon has an interesting mix of locations. The photo above features the Zimmerman Family with their two OwyheeStar girls visiting #22
Here’s a pic of us and the weims at Opal creek! This is one if the 25 abandoned places in Oregon! Shela Nielsen , thought you would like this! We know this is not a great pic of Indy as she is out of frame and Ilsa is headed into the mine!
Ilsa and Indi have been spotted nearly everywhere in and around the Portland area. They frequent the Oregon Coast and are known for the snow-escapades. The point is this family spends a lot of time together–the family includes the fur family members. We thank them for sharing so many great photos and adventures with us all. (Below are a few of the fun snapshots they have graciously shared with us all. Do you have something interesting to share?????
Who can say what is in a look? Some Weims smile and other just get their lip caught on a tooth. This snapshot is of a smug looking duo who by all appearances are totally innocent. Why would I doubt that?
Ilsa usually has a different co-conspirator–her sister Indi. Shenanigans are commonplace at their household and on the road too!
This Story is For Real!
Ginger, Ilsa, and Indi up the Tree
Just when you thought you didn’t have anything new to worry about along comes tree climbing Weims. We suspect they got the idea from the Internet. After all, it is the Information Age. They suggested a trip to Morroco; however, the Oregon Coast provided ample opportunity to practice their skill. Check out the tree-climbing goats. They are an Internet sensation.
Ilsa and Indi
They are a dynamic duo — sisters. One was a rescue that joined the family later, but both are cemented firmly into the Western Oregon family life. They have been featured many times on the OwyheeStar News Blog. You won’t want to check out these cute photos of the girls doing their thing.
She is the expectant mother, with a lot of followers hanging breath-abated. You could also say that inquiring minds want to know what she is carrying in there. There is no guessing–only waiting. Someone will be happy; someone will be sad, and others will take it in stride. We cannot begin to guess.
What we know
She has had one previous litter. It was born July 2013. In that litter, there were eight pups–seven were blue. There were three males, and five females. It remains to be seen if she follows suit again, and produces a predominantly blue litter. Our best guess is this will be the case; therefore, those folks hoping for a silver gray (or gray) pup have a lower chance of getting their dream pup this year. For them, we will be looking toward early 2015. Dave and Cheryl keep us update on Alice (one of Zula’s first litter pups). They also have Emma (Penny X Dusty) who has been a part of their family for several years. Click here to read about Emma meeting Alice; click here to read the most-recent post about Emma and Alice. Of course, there are also the Facebook connections.
Waiting is not easy. anyhow. We something we would ever choose. There are more photos from yesterday posted on our primary website. Click Here to see those photos now! For the puppy addicts, am posting unfolds. Click here to follow the news! We sincerely hope this brings sunshine to your heart and home. The type that is the best kind for the Weimar-addict.
Have a great day. ~ Shela and Cliff
The Ever Handsome Blue Boy–Our Apollo
Apollo at Five Year of Age
We hope this email finds you well! Our wonderful Apollo recently turned 5. This hass been another exciting year for Apollo. We moved into our new home last Summer, so he’s been busy adjusting to his new surroundings. We were pleasantly surprised with how quickly he settled into a new routine. And judging by his constant requests to play outside, I’m guessing he approves of his new yard 🙂 Our two year old son Nolan also keeps him busy, always wanting to play or snuggle. Apollo handles it well and they’ve grown to be good buddies. He’s in for more changes next month when we welcome our second son, Lucas. I look forward to seeing them bond, just as he has with Nolan.
We Appreciate OwyheeStar–Cliff & Shela
Thank you for being there, and for Apollo! Yes this is a wonderful, blessed time in our lives 🙂 And we are grateful to have crossed paths with you and Cliff along the way as we can’t imagine not sharing these moments with Apollo.
Congratulations on the pending arrival of your first great-grandchild! That’s a beautiful name 🙂 Great grandparents are incredibly special…I was blessed with 19 years of wonderful memories with mine, and they are moments that will stay with me always. Anyway, best wishes to your family on her arrival…enjoy every second with her!
Breeder’s Note: We are thrilled that Nolan and Apollo enjoy each other so much. We see a time when the memories (etched upon his heart) during this time of his life are found to be too precious for words. This photo of a young Cliff (taken in about 1958) with his first Weimaraner–Doc, is a case in point. Cliff never forgot this dog, and their time together.
Thank you for remembering us. We look forward to meeting Lucas, and seeing photos of him with Apollo. Congratulations are in order–on the new home, and your expanding family.
