Category Archives: Weimaraner Playdate
This has been happening for awhile now. Weimlovers gather at Nancy’s place for fun bringing the fur family members. Last Sunday was the May Playdate.
Nancy writes–for anyone who may be new 🙂 Plan to come and be dazzled by all the weimies, it’s kind of magical. The property is completely fenced with plenty of room to run, hunt or wrestle around. The Weimer’s pets typically share a meal, this time we are doing salads, finger foods or desserts. We will provide iced tea, water and we also have a German beer on tap! If you would like anything else to drink please bring it! When you arrive, you can either walk right into the house (no need to knock!) or you can also go straight to the back there is a gate at the back of the garage. I have no problem with dogs in the house & PLEASE don’t take your shoes off, there’s just no need to do that! 🙂 Hope you can join us!!
If you want to get in on the fun, contact Nancy ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) and she will get you the information on the next event. Hope you join in the fun!
No Fireplace Needed
All winter we found the Weimaraner soaking up warmth where they could find it. Fireside or atop a heat vent they clung to without shame. Of course, others were tucked in a blanket on the sofa, chair, or snuggled in their owner’s bed.
It’s so sweet to have Mr. Sunshine here to take over for the winter heat source. Everyone in the Pacific Northwest and inland could not be happier to soak up the sun.
Today, being the May Weim Gathering in Salem, we sincerely hope this weather holds for the fun event. Friends, fun, food, and the Weimaraner–what could be a better way to spend a Sunday?
Labor Day Weekend
The Third Cutting is in the Stack. That speaks of the time of year; autumn is around the corner. I am already bemoaning the barren fields left after the harvest. Nonetheless, the harvest is a wonderful occurrence. Cliff is busy getting some water across the fields. While we talk about the irrigated high desert farming practices of far Eastern Oregon, in Western Oregon things are a lot different. The crops for one–a couple of weeks ago the pear harvest was in full swing.
Luna is busy preparing for her guests. Her Mom does the heavy work required to make all of this happen; of course, Holly (who has Goldee and Maverick) is the cheerleader. Then there is the lover Terri Jacobson, of Terri Jacobson Photography, who deftly captures the moment. Here we see Luna wearing her Batman vest for all to see. Her eyes speak volumes, don’t you agree? Click here to read more about this event, or to connect with the group.
This Week on the Blog
Here are the week’s posts if you wish you may review or visit them today! National Dog Day is a thing–thank you for all the shouts and photos. We truly appreciate them. We loved hearing how Porsche continues to seek out the water. The lovely Jorga (who lives in Belgium) was passing out kisses. I bet she did well for the cause. If you are looking for kisses, there is no doubt some will be available at the Weim gathering this weekend. Possibly a stolen hot dog or two as well. Roy and his family have been exploring and turning heads along the way. Finally, Darcy has a special friend. Our hearts were warmed and our lips made to smile by the shares. We hope you enjoyed them as well.
Sunday—August 28 — National Dog Day
Monday — August 29— Water Ways
Tuesday — August 30 — Jorga
Wednesday — August 31 — You’re Invited

On a very personal note
Cliff has been spending lots of time trying to work on the fencing, general repairs as well a the battle of the summer weeds. Then too, we had to get him to Dr. Thornfedlt to have some precancerous situations removed. It is better to do them before they develop into something. He spends a great deal of time outside.
I’ve been focused on all things puppy-there is little time for much else. I need to get some touch up painting done on the end of the farmhouse, but so far it talks to me and nothing else happens. I see it everytime I drive out or come home. Don’t you love those kind of reminders? (Not so much.)
Thanks to You
There is no way we could ever thank you enough for your love and support. We are immensely grateful for those who continually provide us with the material for the blog. Unfortunately, sometimes this is only photos and no script. We can fill in a bit when necessary; however, we like to keep the integrity of your writing real. A couple of sentences can go a long way–sometimes it is enough. Those that have sent us updates know we are more than likely to post it word-for-word.
There is no end in sight of our farmhouse remodel. We are doing it ourselves, and it is the installment plan–we are not borrowing to do this. We buy something and install it. Therefore, having the updates is greatly appreciated than usual–it is always a blessing!
Western Oregon Gathering
A group of Weim-loving fans gathered last Saturday. Since then they have been posting photos and tidbits. No, this is not exclusive to OwyheeStar; however, the founders are tied closely to our Weims.

Salem play date w/ Rupert! Mister was thrilled to meet a bunch of other weimers from our amazing breeder❤ Blue’s and Silvers galore, short & longhaired & all the dogs were incredibly sweet!
We held down the senior section being Roo still has to take it easy👵🏻 thank you Holly for inviting us & thank you Luna’s parents for hosting! *Clearly Terri’s pictures are the ones to watch for, I can’t wait to see them! 🐶💕😘👍🏻💛☀
This event was hosted by Nancy (Luna’s Mama) and spearheaded by Holly (who lives with Goldee and Maverick–two Longhair Weimaraners). If you are interested in joining the fun, contact Holly (on Facebook) to make arrangements for a future playdate. Or if you are looking to meet an OwyheeStar and live in the Salem-Portland area, you could probably connect with an event to get a feel for what the Weimaraners might bring to your life. Good news too–there is a variance of coat lengths and colors. You can see firsthand what they look like and talk to someone who lives with one of these quirky quandary producing creatures.
Holly’s Mama Terri has the pet photography business —Terri Jacobson Photography and we are positive there will be some of her professional photos coming soon. Nonetheless, these captures are wonderful. Don’t you agree?
