Did You Know

It is National Pet ID Week

April 15-21, 2018

IMG_9609 2We embrace the microchip concept for our OwyheeStar puppies. Every pup leaves with the AKC Reunite Microchip implanted. All our puppy family must do is to register their chip (pay a small lifetime fee) with AKC Reunite. Honestly, if you don’t register the microchip is probably not going to do much good.

Let’s not forget the 4th of July and the hoopla associated with it fills shelters to the brim. These hardworking folks do their best to get every pup back to their family; however, it is an arduous process. This one step does more than anything to get your pup back to and along with the ID collar increases your odds of return astronomically.

Did you register the microchip? We sincerely hope you did. Here is more information from AKC Reunite. Our experience has been positive–they are accommodating.


If a neighbor finds your dog, a pet ID tag is the fastest and most efficient way to be reunited with your pet. However, ID tags can fade or fall off, or your pet’s collar can be removed. This is when an enrolled microchip with up-to-date contact information links you and your pet to help ensure you are reunited with your lost or stolen pet.

Independence Day Weimar Wishes

17C_Duchess in the Hay Field Sept 2011 (64) (Custom)4july003“Woof” “Oh, I meant hello there fellow Weimlovers!” Here we are at Independence Day, and I wanted to point out a few things that we Weimars are hoping to celebrate this 4th of July.

Today we are free from automatic suspicion if the toilet paper mysteriously unravels down the hallway, or the trash can topples over. fireworks-01-juneMaybe Uncle Billy imbibed a little too much, and the TP followed him out the door. Remember, fireworks can shake the ground; quite possibly it was that which caused the trash to vault across the deck. On this blessed occasion, we are not owning your farts, or other disgusting sounds you like to place off on us.

We do all kind of thankless services for you, and your friends, who also think we are convenient to blame for their farts. You see the just of this note is one day a year we declare our freedom from the unwarranted accusations. We do admit that many a Weimar antic has caused you a measure of inconvenience, but in the long haul who else accepts you with corn in your teeth–and is happy for the opportunity to remove it for you? Thank you for taking a moment to think about these things.

4july001Be safe and sane with the fireworks. Remember some of us will want to cower, and others will try to retrieve the smoking embers. We are kids that never grow up, and you are the adult. So, this holiday is on you. If I drink too much, it is because you were sloppy. If you leave your plate on the ground, it is fair game. Remember, I don’t sort out the chicken bones, and this could mean an emergency trip in the midst of your holiday fun. Please don’t blame me, because you let things get out of hand.

Finally, don’t let me get frightened and have to run away. If I get lost it would be scary. I have read about Weims turning up at the shelters after a holiday. Thank you in advance for the watermelon, ice cream, and hot dogs. Please make sure I don’t over eat and get sick, but do share. “Woof” fireworks-02-june
