Thank’s for the info. We’ll get her paperwork taken care of soon.
Bluebell has had her shot, all is well so far, back on schedule, thank’s again for helping with that, I so needed it. She’s gone out on her own to potty twice today, she’s figured out our doggie screen door (long story but it works), slept all night, in her crate at 8pm and awakening at 7 this morning!
Of course she’s snoozing within sight of Bell and I go early when she does and watch movies, seems to be all working out. This morning both dogs had a lovely moment, Bell’s unwilling to warm quickly as Bluebell likes to jump up and outright bite her, but in less than a week, they already are much closer. Being 14 August 29, Bell is very sweet with all that’s going on and adjusting well.
There’s a first week update…our family is doing well with the new addition of Bluebell #8…Thank’s again for all your hard work. Debbie
Thank you, Debbie, for the beautiful update. So happy that things are going reasonably well–I mean a tiny pup and the aged girl, it is challenging. But you have this managed.
Here she is a few days before she left OwyheeStar. That face says a lot.
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.

Lexi made it home! Bella is giving her a tour of the backyard.
It was love at first site! Doug said she did great. He thought she slept most of the trip. He offered her water but she didn’t want any. She has already had some water since being home.
You might remember we had shared that we had two Longhairs available for placement–both were a little older (about 12 weeks). We had given them each a name (you have to have a name at some point)–Lexi was known as Tilly. Her sister went to Florence, Oregon–she was initially called Harriet but now is known as Fiona.
We were happy to learn that both did well in their new placement. Bella (Livee X Blue) is teaching Lexi the ropes–giving her the grand tour.

Winnie Meets Colt
Here are a couple of pictures of Colt’s first interaction with Winnie.
We are not sure what her first impressions were.
“What is this?” “We drove all this way to meet this little blue upstart?” “I don’t think so.”
Despite what she is feeling at the moment, they will become inseparable.
- Meet up in a neutral location. Don’t just show up home with the new Weimaraner.
- Don’t let your emotions run amuck. If you are concerned, then the Weimaraner will be equally worried.
- Monitor things and give it time. The adjustment is tough.
- Make sure the resident Weimaraner gets as much if not more attention than the new baby. Bringing home the new puppy and displacing the original will not go well. They have been at the center of the universe for a while. Why should it change now?

We are happy that Sucia has turned the corner and realized that Patos is not only staying, but it is an excellent thing to have a sister.
I am glad you are sticking to the vaccine protocol. It has proven time and again to produce high vaccine titer results–in turn, keeping the additional vaccine at bay with the risk of a severe vaccine reaction.
We do encourage folks to worm their puppy on a regular basis. There are certain things we cannot speak to for a broad-based audience. Each person must decide what the real risk is when it comes to Heartworm–is it vital to start the new puppy on this medication. Well, maybe. If so, should you use the Plus version that covers the worming as well as guarding against the dreaded heartworm scenario? The one caution we do have is to not overload your Weimaraner’s system with a lot of chemicals. Be as Holistic as possible–this is even more important with the young Weimaraner; however, some adult Weims can react to various medications. Proceed with caution and do a bit of research–if there are reports from dog owners who have used a product and it caused seizures, we recommend choosing another option–different pain medication, etc. Weigh the risks and just because one person didn’t have an issue, keep in mind a percentage of Weims do have severe (even life-threatening) vaccine reactions–as well as a low tolerance for certain medications. One that comes to mind is the Rimadyl.

Hi! Wow, time flies.
So Virgil is doing great and I just can’t be more pleased with my Skeeter girl. She has accepted him so well and for the most part is really helpful in his training…except when she’s not haha. They are going to be best friends forever. So I have been doing loose leash training with Virgil and it is soooo beneficial to start from the get-go. He totally gets it, now the human needs to continue to follow through haha.Skeeter is really helpful in this area as she stays by me for the most part. So, super excited about this…
I booked Virgil’s swim assessment at Paw’s aquatic on February 2nd. I’m trying to make it so Skeeter can swim at the same time.
We captured this you tube video so we could let you know how it went. We’re excited to see him swim–thought he did great for his first time.
It is great to hear from you and to see Virgil doing so well with training. We are glad you were able to have them swim in tandem. It is going to be great fun for all concerned. Thank you, for keeping us in the loop.
GREAT new Family Member!
Our new Weimaraner “Simian” from Owyheestar is a GREAT new Family member! He is doing great on a leash in Idaho for walks in the rural countryside. He was basically potty trained somehow when we received him at 8 weeks (Thank you!). The only bathroom accidents have been when we weren’t paying enough attention, our fault.
He is learning commands well, and is now a daily office dog at my firm. He has mastered going up and down the stairs at week 11. Thank you Owyheestar, Simian being an ambassador with the public, i am already recommending your company.
Everyone Adores Him!
One young 5 year old girl while petting him said: “He is so soft, i want to pet him ALL over!”
Thank you for updating us on Simian. We are beyond thrilled that you love him so much. Keep up the good work.
July 23, 2015--Today is Lucy’s 9th birthday. She and Luigi got a special treat of chicken while Bob and I sang Happy Birthday to her. I took a video that I hope turned out well enough for you to see and hear. We hope you enjoy it, although our singing is pretty bad!!! LOL!!! The kids, of course, gobbled down the treat. Lucy was smiling which I’m glad showed up on the video.

Breeder’s Note — Thank you, Idelle and Bob, for allowing us to share this video. Happy Birthday to Lucy!
