~Winchester, Opus and Stanley
Every one kind of has their spot and then they rotate a bit during the night. Stanley has no concept of personal space. As long as he’s touching someone. 💙
I am not sure what personal space means–the ultra Velcro Weimaraner, for the most part, seems to think they are better when touching to or someone they love. Some are more clingy than others.
For all those who only have the one Weimaraner (or might be just starting with their first), can you imagine someone living with three? People do it, and in some cases, they even might have four family Weimars–but it most certainly is not for everyone.
~ 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
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.
~ Private Romp with Hudson
Just wanted to share this funny picture of Dexter and Hudson. Dexter is getting paybacks for all the times Hudson sat on him! Dexter will be 10 in April and starting to slow down but LOVES his private romp sessions with his daddy when his weim brother and human brother are upstairs and not there to disrupt!
What memories Hudson will have–of his time with Dexter. A boy and his Weim–are forever etched in his heart. Cliff is a bit older but here is Cliff’s first Weimaraner.
~We’re Going Public
The weather is finally cooling off in south Texas! I saw someone do this for their dog on the internet and I wondered if my boyz would like it…success! It just took a few minutes of positive reinforcement and they trusted the contraption. 😹
Sending love and weim kisses! ~Melinda
This gadget is fabulous. I have a little face and ear massage that is kind of similar. Thank you for sharing this with us.
~Opus a saurus — one who mouths everything
Like most Weims, he is mouthy–I’ve really struggled with this habit of his. He is the reason I engaged the services of a trainer.
Not Gonna Happen
This picture is from one of the visits and from the dog trainer. He just laid there. He’s the reason I needed the trainer–remember. He’s not wanting to work on stuff. I’ve really struggled with this habit with him.
It’s quite alarming when he grabs you by the arm if you’re not comfortable with 85 lbs of lovin’. Then he nibbles your butt. Always predictable. Never harmful. We’re making strides. This picture is from one of the visits from the dog trainer. He just laid there. He’s the reason I needed the trainer. He’s very mouthy, like most Weims. I’ve really struggled with this habit with him.
Ok that’s it for now. I just love them all. Thank you. Can’t imagine belong without these guys.
Can I just say you are the best–thank you, Melinda, for your response to my request. BTW–I appreciate everyone who has already send something for our blog–and those who still plan to do so.
~Whipped Cream Involved
I just wanted to share this 🤣 you can’t see Opus in the video I put on FB. I love how he backs up 😂I think he is not impressed with how this sprays out. Whipped cream in my dish please.
That you, Melinda–you are always good to share the cute and unique situations you encounter. With three OwyheeStar kids–I am sure you see the likeness and at the same the unique quirkiness. Love to you and Winchester, Opus, and Stanley (the Longhair).
~Got it Covered
It doesn’t matter what comes our way–squirrel, bunny, lizard, birdie, or a pesky human–I see it all. If you have one or more Weimaraner in the household, you know for what I speak. “Woof!”
There are other perks too–my nose art mention one.
~My First Longhair
Emmy is doing great! Emmy and Odin play, rough-house and nap together. Uli is still reserved – but we’re down to mostly growls. I still have to keep an eye on anything Uli determines is high value to her and put it away. She at least now let’s Emmy chase her in the yard – otherwise It’s like she has no concept of play. No more blood has been drawn and just waiting for Emmy’s eyebrows to grow back on the side they shaved – otherwise her torn eyelid healed up fully without issue.
Emmy has a vet check-up this week and I’ll talk about titer at 16 weeks. So far I’ve held off on any non-essential vaccinations. My vet’s titer charge is around $240. I called around Vancouver vets and the cheapest is $130 – from those that even offer it.
Emmy met my parents’ poodle a few weeks ago (at my parents house) and Bentley overwhelmed her – plus unfamiliar environment- so she wasn’t interested in playing with him. They will bring him over to my house today for a bit.
She still hates the crate (has never spent a night in it). Working on getting her to go to the door when it’s potty time. She at least is good about going in the same spot first thing every time I take her outside. The trainer in Camas has classes and puppy drop-off (just puppies and trainers so they play and work in basic manners and skills). We need to enroll.
Hope all is well with you! Time to get outside, let’s the dogs play and plant some more flowers, vines and shrubs in my yard. It’s a beautiful time of year.
Speaking of the Titer Test — if you just call your Vet office and ask about having one done, in all likelihood, you are going to have a similar experience to Jill. There is; however, a new Titer Test that is doable in your Vet’s office. We are ever so thankful that Dr. Calhoun agreed to order the test. We know that they (Idaho Veterinary Hospital) have done several in-house titer tests.

Jill, we so appreciate you–your loyalty as well as your commitment. Too bad about the early encounter when Udi lashed out at Emmy–being protective of the bone. Yes, there is always the risk of something going sideways when you incorporate a new fur family member. We are glad that things are working out. Thanks for your hard work to get past this issue.
The Chill is On
~ But Rupert Walks his Mama
Isn’t it grand when you get your exercise with a buddy like Rupert.? We notice he is wearing a sweater.
Sometimes they Drive
And Once in Awhile We Snooze Late
There is a theme here. Rupert is sleeping in his blanket. He is wearing his sweater, and it looks as if he has driving attire too. It goes unsaid that he is wrapped in love.
Makes No Difference
