Congratulations on your New Title CW-SIAx2
To spare you all the craziness of all the acronyms, CWAGS, Canine Work and Games has scent detection division which Henry and I compete in. There are multiple levels that build upon each other. The higher the level the greater degree of difficulty of the hides. Henry has completed 24 successful runs in Level 3, Scent Investigator, to earn this pretty pink rosette. Officially, his title is CW-SIAx2!! Click Here to learn more about this organization.
I’m so lucky you snd Cliff care so much. When I tell people that I am still in touch with you they are shocked. You set a very high standard, which is rare, outstanding, and more than appreciated.
Xoxo H & P
Henry and Patti — we are delighted with your great effort. Anyone who has participated in a venue understands how it costs you–time, energy, and cash. A title is not guaranteed, either. Congratulations on your scent work achievement. We know several OwyheeStar folks are considering getting involved. It is always good to share information, and a positive outcome is the icing on the post (or the cake). (Haha)
Also–we thank you for the great compliment. Yes–we try to stay connected to the folks that get a pup from us. We are quite honored that so many of you make this possible–plus, a lot of people are willing to give us an update. Where we post a blog 365 days a year, getting the updates to help, it is essential. We cannot begin to express how much it means in a few short words.
~Cats and Dogs
It’s raining and princesses don’t want to get wet even with their raincoats on!!!
It looks like Skye and Haze are covered. What a gorgeous color on the two blue girls.
~ What a Good Boy
We got a kitten today. I just wanted to send you evidence of how GOOD Edgar is!!
Ed also loves to run. Above is a picture of him on our run today and this picture shows how happy he is after running
Thank you–for the photos, the videos, and the news. What a great life you have together.
~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!
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.
What Could Be Better?
I just wanted to reach out and let you know that my family and I may be looking for another Weimaraner. We are not looking for a puppy though. After purchasing our sweet Kobey from you about 3.5 years ago. We have added a human addition 🙂 Kobey is absolutely amazing with her 🙂
I have been wanting to find a grown friend for kobey because we have a little bit of land here and he loves other dogs so much. Not sure I want a puppy again though. So just wanted to let you know just Incase you here of a weimaraner in need of a new forever home. Not picky as long as the dog would do well with kids and of course another dog. A smaller female would be ideal but not necessary. Thanks in advance for keeping me in mind if you here of a friend for my doggy 🙂 Mandie in McMinnville Oregon
We might have something that would work for you. Of course, when you talk about incorporating an older Weimaraner into the family, it requires careful planning. We will be back to again, soon.
~Looks Like to Some of Us!
Special Thanks to Patti (Henry’s Mama) for sharing this photo with us!
We sincerely hope your Easter Sunday is spectacular. We are sure you will enjoy seeing Easter Bunny Henry as much as we did.
PS: Patti has also promised photos of Henry from his Nosework. She says he got a 3/4–honestly, I am not sure what that means but possibly we will learn more. So, we can look forward to more lovely photos of Henry.
~In a Good Way
I didn’ t realize that Henry has only been learning scent-work since March. We got involved because being an energetic, 3-year-old Weim, with a flair for being extreme nosey, it seemed to be fit. Also, I found the science behind a dogs nose fascinating.
What We Accomplished
Henry has completed Level 1, 2, 3 and working in level 4. More than anything though, it has been an experience for me! I have learned more about myself in the last few months and for that, I am most grateful to my handsome Blue boy. Scentwork is a team trust sport.
Your dog knows what to do, however until dogs and humans can speak the same language, the sport is much more about learning patience, watching your dogs every move, and even more important, trust. We have had good trials and not so good, one thing is certain Henry loves this sport and so do I. We take away something new from each practice or trial. We figure a way through false alerts and keep rewarding the sourced odor.
Henry’s hard work has left us with 3 titles, Level 1 and 2 C-WAGS, Level 1 ABC games, Noteworthy, in our seemingly short period of time. I am very lucky to have Henry enjoy this sport as much as I do. It’s a special bond with a Weimaraner, I’m finding out truly how extraordinary Henry is. Thank-you Cliff and Shela!!
We are happy to hear about your continued success. Congratulations to you Patti–what a great team the two of you make. Fun–that is something that is so important. If you are having a good time more than likely, the Weimaraner is as well. At least in Henry’s case, this seems to be his element. Keep up the good work!
Taking to the Water
Thought you’d like to see a short video. Freyja really loves the water. She’s on the right trying to take the stick away from Odin…lol. She’s a love!! Have a great day
