~ Finally She Claims This Bed
For 6 months no interest in a bed whatsoever. Have no idea what changed her mind but she clearly enjoys herself now. Her trust is incredibly moving.
Flo didn’t learn to love a bed–but I am going to be honest, Stackhouse (until very recently) refused to use any bed we put out for him. Weims are truly weird–if they get an idea, it can take a long time to come around to a change of mind and heart.
~Challenging times because her fur sister is 13
I know it’s been a while, but we’ve been busy trying to take care of Levi, the senior dog–she turned 13 in July. Bella is doing awesome other than the look you get when you awaken her from her beauty sleep.
~What is a Bella Bag?
I made her a new Bella bag which if any of you that has a dog that loves to be covered up, take a king-size( King size is perfect for these lovely large dogs, and you get two blankets out of it or cubbies whatever you wanna call it. I Call it a Bella bag.)
Bella loves her fuzzy blanket–(I don’t know why but a regular blanket just didn’t cut it for Bella. She has to have a fuzzy one. LOL) I the cut the blanket in half, fold each half, and knot the sides up Bella loves hers. Don’t mind the dirty sheet on top of my bed to keep my bed; oops, I mean Bella’s bed clean. It’s been raining, and Bella brings a lot of mud in on her big feet (LOL). It gets removed when we go to bed😉
I do read your OwyheeStar Weimaraner News blog every morning with my cuppa coffee. With everything going on in the world, it is the best part of the morning. I genuinely enjoy hearing about the farm, and the puppies make me want to get another one. (LOL) 😉 You guys have an awesome day.
Debbie–it is so good to hear from you. I can see you are quite challenged with Levi’s issues–you had her quite sometime before you acquired Miss Bella. We appreciate that you have stayed in touch over the years. This Bella Bag is a cute idea–innovative. Thanks for the update and the tip.
~Or, Where’s our Lu?
So – Lu doesn’t sleep on the bed with us at night but has her own crate and bed.
But during the day for naps, I bought a heavy muslin-weight couch cover that I put over the bed, and she has her own blanket. At 8 years old, she does like her creature-comforts (in fact in very cold weather she loves to nap on top of the heat vent!). Spoiled? Of course.
This morning is freezing fog in Central Oregon, and after her morning outing and breakfast, guess where she heads!
I’m titling this one: “There’s a Weim in there somewhere”!
Hope you and Cliff have a great 2019 – and thanks for all the wonderful posts.
Sharyl and Steve (McCulloch) in Sisters.
It is so good that you keep us apprised an Lu and her antics. This is a good one–where all of us might like to be on such a morning as you describe. (Haha)

To say that we value those folks who share our passion would be an understatement. So many of you who bring home the OwyheeStar pup make them an integral a part of your family. We see the Facebook posts. It warms our hearts to know that all the work we pour into the process makes a huge difference.
We have included a smattering of photos we saved. Some were sent to us via email. Others were Facebook posts–some of which you had tagged us in the post. The OwyheeStar might be found on the sofa, on the bed, and in at least in one instance on the piano. We understand Gibson is challenged as a support artist. They can be found staring out the window anxious awaiting somebody’s arrival or making sure there are no interlopers. They frequent boats and are at home in and around the water. More than anything they want to be ultra close. You make a great pillow if you can just stay still long enough for them to get a nap. For your information, the two pictured using their master’s head as a pillow are not the same Weim. Another place you might encounter the OwyheeStar is on the beach. More often than not we are speaking of the Oregon or Washington Coast. Some of these Weims live at (or near) ocean front locations. Some, like Rupert and Wendy, visit the coast often.
Thank you for sharing with us via email, Facebook, and in other ways. Our hearts are forever joined by one or more of these wonderful creatures.
