Sandwiched

~ Between Duchess and Diesel

Here is my great nephew enjoying the kids, Duchess got up since I reached for my phone. I told Christopher that he was a ‘Christopher’ sandwich with Weim bread, as a very loving 9 year old, he giggled and said “send a picture to my mom.”

Foster wasn’t too happy his best buddy was enjoying the company of another human but sleep in and this happens!

Breeder Comment

Well–I can understand your son (Foster) finding his cousin sandwiched thinking someone was being disloyal. (Haha) These two typically sandwich him–even though Duchess is your baby girl.

Pilikia in the Snow

~ With Kula Bleu

They dogs are loving their Carhartt jackets and they are getting used to their boots, although Kula will still only let me put them in his back paws!

Pilikia Wears All Four

Mahalo, Brent

Breeder Comment

Brent–thanks for thinking of us; it means so much. We know everyone will love these photos of the two, and how Kula Bleu doesn’t wear all four boots.

Bad Hair Day

~ Or Not

What are you talking about?

Daisy’s parents say, “she has the best personality” I think she makes them laugh a lot — and is a good snuggle-girl. What else does the soul need?

Breeder Comment

Maybe this brings a smile to you. I know it does to me. Possibly Daisy had a bit of help to achieve the look, but who cares?!? There are a few Weimlovers that groan every time we post features the Longhair, but others celebrate the fun, the joy, and the look.

GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON

~November 30, 2019

Sunrise October 21 2017

Well, just like that we are at the end of November.

Thanksgiving with family made us smile–none more than the two Great-granddaughters who entertained us–but also who set the perfect table without incident. The leftover pie disappears from the counter and shows up on our hips. (Oops)

Pie is not the only thing that has gone missing–well, this is a good thing. Our haystack was loaded on the truck and hauled away.

AT OWYHEESTAR

Bettee’s pups are maturing and changing every day. The dinky male still needs extra nourishment, but readily takes to bottle feeding. We will see what happens–it remains to be discovered, but for now, he is doing well.

Christina is busy–engaged in all things pups related. She also tends our needs as time permits. We are feeling very blessed.

This Week On the Blog…

As always, thanks to our faithful OwyheeStar contributors–they make this all possible. (Haha) We sincerely hope our readers enjoyed these updates as much as we did, too. If you have a story that you will let me share–I need at least three sentences and a decent photo. I prefer to receive it via email. (FYI–we only use stories that feature the OwyheeStar Weimaraner).

Sunday— November 24 — What Else (Stackhouse)

On a very personal note

Cliff continues to improve but finds his stamina lacking. It has been tough. Dr. Smith says for every day in the hospital to expect a week for recovery. If we count the four trips to ER (which were far worse for Cliff), then we are looking at about a month to get back on his feet. He is working and keeping up the essential things. As possible, he is taking care of the miscellaneous repairs, etc.

We don’t subscribe to Murphy’s Law, but somehow it overtakes us from time to time. (Haha) We were fortunate more things didn’t go awry during Cliff’s medical encounter. The Gator had to be repaired, a water issue developed and had to be fixed, and there is a small electrical issue, too. Let’s not count all the other things he does to keep things working–that we were spared during that week. All-in-all things went well.

I was able to get to the Art Department and work on a few of the things in progress. Sadly, one of my favorites imploded. (Oops)

I’ll make another when I get a chance. (Haha) Hopefully, the items awaiting the next firing will come through in good condition.

Maggie

~ We shared so much!


I got a puppy from you in August of 2007. We named her Maggie. She was the absolute love of my life,  my #1, my sweet and precious girl. 


Me and the kids had to say goodbye to Maggie last Saturday the 16th. As I began to collect her things from around the house and put them in a keepsake box, I found the litter certificate among other things I’ve saved  I checked online to see if you still had a website. 


I just wanted you to know she lived a full life and brought so much joy and humor to our family and everyone she came into contact with for over 12 years. She was one of a kind. Hands down the smartest, most loving and best dog I’ve ever had. 


I knew over the last year I didn’t have much time left with her. I promised her I’d stay by her side until the end and so I did.  I sat right beside her until her last breath and kissed her goodbye.


This past week had been particularly hard. The footsteps usually behind me were gone and the silence was deafening. Not being able to put my arm around her and tell her I love her as we fell asleep felt unnatural. This too shall pass and what will remain are the beautiful memories I have. 
I’ve attached some of my favorite pictures of my girl and a short video of just how silly she was. 


I’m so grateful to come across your website and have had her in my life. Thank you for giving us such a beautiful soul!

Thank you for remembering us and for the beautiful life shared with Maggie. We are beyond sad for your loss–but we know that the future holds a new journey with yet another Weimaraner. Maggie cannot be replaced, but who knows where your next adventure will lead?

Thanksgiving

~ We are ever so Grateful

Dear OwyheeStar Friends, Fans, and Followers,

We want to take this time to send a heartfelt note to everyone who reads our blog. Of course, we are all thankful to those who have contributed a story–I believe we can all agree that we love hearing about the Weimaraner. Especially those related to ours. (Haha)

With Cliff’s recent illness, you folks upheld us with your prayers and positive vibes–Wow, we are ever so thankful for that too. We would be hard-pressed to write a short-list of things for which we are grateful. Our kids, our grandkids, and our great-grandkids would definitely top the list.

We continuously tell anyone that will listen that we have met some of the best folks on planet earth–all because of the Weimaraner. It never ceases to amaze us –you people are the BEST.

Thank you for the trust you share with us–for your loyalty and for sharing so much with us. Our OwyheeStar Community makes us smile every day.

And, let us not forget a little Puppy Fix from this week’s bit of business.

Sharing Life

Are We not Adorable? Bella (Gray) and Daisy the Blue Longhair

We have two Weims from you. Both from Stackhouse. One long hair and one sliver.

They love the snow.! One swims and the other one just likes to Wade in the water. You can see they are both lap dogs.

Breeder Comment

People ask us how we can let these adorable pups go after pouring our heart and soul into raising them–and here is the answer. We do it for others, and to give each pup the best possible life.

People like you make all the work worth doing–thank you for the update. We appreciate you!

May I Help You?

~ Waylon James at Your Service

How May I Help You?

It’s been forever since I’ve given you an update on Waylon – I cant believe he is almost THREE!!!!! He’s still wild, spunky, and makes us laugh each day with his crazy weim personality! 


I recently changed jobs, after working from home with Waylon for the first 2 1/2 years we had him.  It was quite the adjustment for both of us !  Bend is an incredibly dog friendly town so the job offer included bringing on my handsome assistant! 

Breeder Comment

We love going into stores, offices, and other dog-friendly businesses. One OwyheeStar works at a doctor’s office. Yes, I got that right (a physician’s office), but don’t get too excited because they are not in the Pacific Northwest.

Run Away Kali Blue

~ Do You Remember?


I’ve been meaning to write something up for a blog on Kali but work has been busy….I guess army life won’t slow down until I retire!!!
Anyways here’s a quick update on my little run away Kali Blue.
She adapted well with the other animals in the home and as soon as I picked her up…there was no doubt she knew she was going home for good!  The smile on her face shows it all.

She still loves long walks in woods and playing ball.  Her pray drive is there but she lacks the field training to hunt.  She enjoys chasing rabbits and squirrels while on walks in the woods.  We attempted a few shed hunts this spring with no luck.

She still loves cuddles and I think the wife enjoys her company when I’m gone, I don’t think Kali enjoys it as much.

Anyhow happy holidays and hope all is well on the farm!!
I promise to write something up on the 1 year anniversary of our reuniting.

I remember like it was yesterday when you told me that Kali Blue would one day return to you. In my heart, I hoped against the odds. But you knew something–it was that kind of intuition that speaks to you in a time of trouble, and you heard the promise. When Kali Blue was found only a few blocks from where you live, I had mixed feelings. I was relieved but also disillusioned, knowing the search for her was more than a simple turning over of the rocks. There is no way they didn’t see the photos on every pole around that end of town. Who doesn’t look at the missing dog notice? Especially someone who just picked up one. (OMG)

Thank you, Phillip, for keeping us in the loop. I am sad that all that hunt preparation you put in her early on is not paying off, but who knows. I love these early photos of her in the field–click here. Nonetheless, she is home. This story has the underpinning of a good novel or movie.

What Else

Stackhouse Ready and Waiting

Well, the Bronco’s offense made Stackhouse pretty darned happy. Every score means a football toss in the living room.
