Astra

~She’s Getting Bigger

She is our little girl and we love her with all our hearts. She loves the back yard and caught her first frisbee midair she loves playing ball , jumping into the hammock with mom. Her favorite thing in the yard is the fountain it is three tier and she likes the bottom she will drink water out of it and let all the water run down her face we now call it the dog wash.

Breeder Comment

It sounds like Miss Astra is doing well. The fountain thing is a hoot. Thanks for the share–we all enjoyed it.

Remy Blue

~ Part One

Breeder Comment

We begin with a little preface–so that we can better set the backdrop. Remy Blue is the lovely pup (or the only pup I could also say, born to Deja Vu 04/10/2018). To say she was tiny would be an understatement, but she had another feature which set her apart–a cowlick that ran down the front of her face. Anyhow, we are so delighted to have photos and information on this lovely pup to share with you.

Sahyo Reports

I faithfully read your daily OWNews and am delighted to read all about the many puppies and Weims from your “pack”. I’ll attempt to briefly bring you up to date on “The Wonderful World of Remy Blue”.

Remy Blue is a sweet, loving, and clever puppy. Her cowlick running down her snout is adorable. She immediately eased into our lives and placed her paw right onto our hearts. Her air travel to Carlsbad, CA (as my carryon) was uneventful and she slept through it until the descent. 

Crate training was fine including the initial few minutes of whiny protest, but soon was happily using it as her “home base”. One of her favorite places to rest is a foot pouf. Somehow Remy Blue was able to climb up and find a comfortable spot. Her puppy blue eyes are striking in this photo.

Additional Comment

Sahyo–you so kindly provided us with tidbits of information (and photos) that take her through the first year. We will post this in a few segments over the next ten days. We appreciate you flying into Boise and carrying her home to California, too. We are excited to share more information soon.

For those interested–click here to see an older blog featuring Deja Vu and Boone–Remy Blue’s parents.

Summer Vacation

~Can Mean a lot of things

You might remember that we picked up Duchess not all that long ago–and our Diesel was not all that thrilled with her arrival at first. He wasn’t bad, but his attitude said, “and I don’t think we need this.” So, we were off and running back to the Two-Weim family again, hoping that Diesel would fall in love with Duchess, too.

Fast Forward six-weeks

School is officially out. This is what I see as I leave for work–Foster and the two Weims snuggled in. This boy is not short on Weim snuggles!  

We are getting out into the community, too! Since we got back the good results from the recent titer test (showing we were protected from the Parvovirus), we have gotten out and about. For one, we made it to the dog park, and I now have two really tired Weims.

Change happened

Yes, Duchess will rule the roost, it is what it is. Scout and Diesel aren’t impressed where HER game of keep away with the ball 😂Well, here is the look that speaks volumes from our boy, Diesel.

Duchess Swam

I figured Duchess had already been swimming at your place. She took to the water naturally. Later, I learned that you didn’t have water in the pond, and this was her first water experience. Wow–and she swam, too!

Breeder Comment

We love hearing about Diesel and Duchess. It was especially sweet to learn that she is a natural in the water. Have a fun summer–Foster, has a job.

In Town

~With Tikka and Luna

I had the girls in Lowes today and talked to a man who was taken by my beautiful girls, I gave him your card 😊

BTW-I can take both girls into the store by myself and they are so good!! I’m always so proud 😊

You bet your booties we got new babies today!


They got new babies today. Love my girls, Nancy

Breeder Comment

Well, hello to you two girls–glad your Mom dropped me a quick update. I am glad the man at Lowe’s loved you (Tikka and Luna) Who doesn’t? Thank you, Nancy, for the endorsement–and for being you!

Stone

~Making Friends–Stealing the Show!

I think of you all the time, how could I not. Stone is so perfect – even his naughtiness is a joy. EVERYONE who meets him falls in love. I’m thinking when he is two, he may need a little OwyheeStar brother. 
He has brought me so much joy – at a time that isn’t easy otherwise. If only teenagers could learn from puppies (mine especially). 

We have abandoned the crate and leave Stone alone with Blue during the day for no more than four hours at a time – he is perfect – no destruction, no accidents – what a change from our first Weim! 

Stone steals the show at Puppy Elementary Class – hmmm but they haven’t seen him on a walk! 

The only challenge is the wake up call at 4 am. I’m thinking I need to make dinner later – maybe that will help him to sleep past 4 am??? Even though an early breakfast is a pain, his after snuggle under the covers almost makes it worth it. 

Love, love, love my Stone. 
Victoria

We cannot thank you enough for keeping us updated on Stone. We are ever so happy that you love him so much. Thanks again!

In the Limelight

Well, that is interesting. You might remember Charlie Mae as the girl who wears the Christmas lights every December. Here she is in all her glory–, isn’t this spectacular? Oh–what more can we say?

2019 Weekly Synopsis

GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON

~June 1, 2019

Sunrise October 21 2017

We notice a lot of the local hay has not yet been cut–the prevailing rains have set us back a few weeks. (Haha) That is not new news.

Meanwhile, the Ontario Splash Pad opened this week. A lot of people are very excited about this event. I don’t suppose we will be using it, but it fabulous for the Great Granddaughters. I really don’t know much about it, but my dental tech had to get to the Grand Opening–she was stoked.

School is out–that means that summer basketball is in full swing. We will be making as many games or scrimmages as possible. (Haha) We were in Nyssa on Thursday evening for two games. Of course, we are not the only ones scrambling to make these events.

AT OWYHEESTAR

Bernie and Cliff –before the pups arrived!

We are still busy with Bernie’s current litter. She is such a hoot–and a fabulous Mama, too.

Meanwhile, Cliff has been busy working on the waterlines–as well as various upgrades for the puppy yards, etc.

This Week On the Blog…

Thank you to each of you who contributed something that we used for a blog. We hope everyone enjoyed the stories as much as we did.

The caption for the two Weims looking out the window might be–“Shela’s look for material for her blog again, I see her coming.” Well, enjoy the updates if you missed them this week–drop us one if you can.

Sunday— May 26 — Sisters

Monday–-May 27 — Happy Memorial Day

Tuesday — May 28 — Pushkin

Wednesday — May 29 — Puppy Kindergarten

On a very personal note

~The Garden and Around the Farmhouse

The gardening continues, and that is excellent news, too! The gardening girls are back–we worked on a few things together. The great-granddaughters picked the pea pods–their Mom said she would make a stir fry. I keep snatching the pea pods to eat as a snack–yum.

We still have another raised bed to get built–but first Cliff must finish all the back-filling from the water lines. It is so great to have faucets instead of long runs with hoses traveling here and there with levels to control things. Anyhow, we have plants that need to go into the next raised bed–hopefully, Cliff can get it put together for us soon.

Cliff saw the podiatrist about his foot issue–it was a quick fix situation. If it gets worse, it may eventually require surgery, but for now, a trim worked. I am so happy for him–feet issues are not welcome. He doesn’t see the Oncologist until July–I think I am scheduled for August.

(Speaking of Cliff) He made the girls smile–he let them get up on the tractor. Then he came back with the Gator and took them for a ride. They were all smiles.

Legit Questions Here

~ Weimars everywhere want to know

Should we say–“Caption This!?!”

Just imagine what might be going through their mind…

  1. Where do they think they’re going?
  2. Do you think they forgot us?
  3. How much time do we have?
  4. Do you think he is coming back?
  5. Do you think we can open the refrig or pantry? Maybe both–

Are these two conspirators? That is a good question–together they are either better behaved or more creative with their antics.

Emmy

~Weim in a Wig

I Love her. Love the variation from the norm. She definitely gets comments when we are out and about – especially now the she looks like a “Weim in a wig” – Weim snout framed by curly ears.  

Yesterday (May 26th) Emmy spent the afternoon playing with a French Bulldog and today we went to my parents. Here she is with Bentley – a  3-year-old standard poodle.

Breeder’s Comment

Thank you, Jill, for sharing the photo and the video of Emmy playing with your parent’s Standard Poodle. It fun to see her in action.

Puppy Kindergarten

~Andi’s Formal Training Begins Soon

Andi has her Forever Family right where she wants them–close at heart. We received the results from the titer test (done by Dr. Calhoun’s Idaho Veterinary Hospital–Nampa, Idaho)–Andi is safe to go out in public. Hurrah!

Andi with her Mallard — so, technically, she is a Duck Dog.

Nancy Says…

She doesn’t bark but sometimes she squeeks with good cheer.  Millie used to do that, Weimie squeaks, there’s nothing cuter.

What a wonderful dog she is.  I set up her crate which she immediately got into and sat telling me, “I got this.”  She adores my 5 yo grandson.  No indoor messes.  She prances behind me everywhere I go. She loves her toys keeping them all in a pile, her pile. She is not destructive in any way, tho I did move all my house plants up and gave a few away. She is absolutely the best!  She’s a people dog. Does she know how to bark?? Thunder outside right now, she is not bothered at all, calm and happy.

She is so well adjusted. Thank you for all you and Cliff did to socialize her. She is a very fast learner, she is so willing to please.
