Millee

~From Wrangel, Alaska

My husband and I bought a long haired weim from you in 2012 from Millee & Stackhouse’s litter. She is a beautiful 8 year old who is a huge part of our family. We also have another 9 year old husky mix. We unfortunately lost our 14 year old short haired Weim last year and it was a very sad time for our family. We are now ready to add another beautiful little weim pup to our family of five. Our three children, my husband, and I have fallen in love with this breed and appreciate how thorough and great you were to work with in the past. We would love to purchase another pup from you. 

Our current 8 year old weim, Millee, had a little more energy from the get go but is such a lover. They are such loyal, beautiful dogs. We look forward to adding another Weim to our family.

We are thrilled to see Millee (named for her Mama) is doing well. We look forward to working with you again.

Enzo

~ Our First Week

I wanted to give you a quick update on how Enzo’s first week went. The drive back to Seattle went well and he slept almost the entire time. I can’t express how smart he is ( typical weim)!

His older fur sister Sophie ( 11yr old weim) is getting used to him, but it is a slow process. Today he went for his 9-week shot and weighs in at 13.3 lbs. Everyone their fell in love with him, I even got a text from the vet tech giving him lots of love. We want to thank you so much for what you and Cliff do, you truly are amazing! Have a great afternoon. Jessi and family

Have I ever told you that we meet some of the best people in the universe through the Weimaraners? If not, then I should. Thank you, Jessi–you have been so lovely and patient through the process. It is much appreciated. We genuinely appreciate this update on Enzo’s first week.

Shiny Writes

~Wyoming Vacation Trip

My Mom and Dad took me to Wyoming for vacation and property searching. I had so much fun! I smelled wild horses, deer, elk, antelope, and so many squirrels!! I got to sleep in a tent by a river, and by a reservoir. But my favorite place was a fire lookout tower at 10,00 feet!

I was allowed to chew my Qwizzle on the bed! And then when we came home, we went out looking for grouse. I got all birdie and pointed those guys! My mom started teaching me to use buttons. I can use the button to order her to take me outside, or get me some water, or stuff my Qwizzle with treats. I don’t know why I need a button, though, I used to just stare at her. I hope you and Cliff are well and enjoying the fall!


Love, Shiny

For those who don’t remember you, Shiny (how could they forget you, though)–I am leaving this Click Here link so you can read more. And Shiny–we know how busy you and your (Vet Tech) Mama are–so taking the time to write means so much. Your adventures and stories, as well as the achievements, are celebrated. Thanks for sharing this with us. 

Reviewing the Numbers

~ Shiny and Julia in Colorado Snow


As you know, Shiny gets a minimum of 1 hour of “Mommy Time” per day, & now that the snow is here in the Rockies, our various hikes are looking (and feeling) totally new! One thing I have noticed is that Shiny definitely gets more excited about the forest hikes over the high desert hikes. I wonder if that is because the breed was developed in the forests of Germany?

Reviewing the Numbers

The first pic is of Shiny reviewing the numbers – as Chief Negotiator of Treat Distribution, he is not pleased with the direction the trend has taken. 😂
Have a great holiday season!


Love, Julia & Shiny

You can tell you live in the mountains–it a a beautiful setting. Thanks for sharing photos from one of excursions. We all remember that Shiny has excelled at Nose Work (click here to see a previous post). We have had several posts regarding Shiny’s title earning nose work, but possibly this was the cutest post ever–click here.

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.

We are Expecting

~ Bettee is Due Anytime

We can do nothing but hold our breath until the projected whelp happens–this is the first of two slated for this month. And, more importantly–this is an all Longhair Litter. Of course, we cannot guess what we will get–coat color, sex of the pups, or the number born.

Change Happens

~with Moxie, my shadow

I’ve decided to stay home with baby and no return to work after 17 years.  Crazy!  I’m excited to have a new job at home and of course the dogs are thrilled.  Moxie is my shadow.  The dogs love are daily morning walks and seem to not mind that we added to our pack and the walk includes a stroller now.


I don’t want to miss out on your wonderful daily blogs.  I look forward to them every day.  


Happy Halloween! Chrissy

We are so happy you enjoy reading the OwyheeStar Weimaraner News Blog. Honestly–we would never have dreamed that it would take on a life of its own at the beginning. Here we are thousands of blogs later–years later and still going. We are ever so thankful to our fans, readers, and especially to the loyal OwyheeStar community.

Lulu and Lyla

~on our heels at all times

Lulu & Lyla are are on our heels at all times ( just like our last two Weimaraners)!  If we shower we had better make sure the rugs are down, if not we better lay down our clothes so they can keep an eye on us while we shower!  This surely must be a sign that we are good dog parents as they cannot get enough of us!  Wish our twin almost 14 year old girls felt the same!


Thank you for these faithful, loving and furry kids!
Jeff, Heidi, Emma & Ella

For those who like their personal space or privacy, we say keep on traveling toward a different breed. The Velcro Weimar is all about being in your space–touching you, having your things. Oh yeah! You Weimlovers know what we are talking about–don’t even think about the Weimaraner.

Human Onboard

~ Charlotte and Moxie

 Moxie is doing well and has adjusted to having a little human in the house.  I think she looks at the new addition as part of the pack and a little man cub.  🙂

We recently went to Tahoe and still manage to find time for some swimming and hiking.  It won’t be long before our little girl (Charlotte Avery) will be trotting and swiping along side Moxie.  


Moxie’s nickname is Moose.  I included a picture of my favorite PJ’s for Charlotte.  It’s amazing how dogs know that she is a little baby and immediately go into protective mode.  


Thanks for all of the blogs.  I especially like the farm and garden updates.  How do you have the time?  You have inspired my husband to make his own ketchup.  We will see how it goes.
Love from California.  


-Chrissy, Brian, Charlotte & Moxie Blue

We are so happy that Charlotte arrived safely–and that her and Moxie Blue tag-team you already. How sweet they are together. I sincerely hope the homemade ketchup turns out well –we like ours.

Double Trouble Bubbles

~That’s a crazy name, don’t you agree?

Well, here is a lovely older girl (OwyheeStar’s Double Trouble Bubbles) for which we could find the perfect Golden Year placement–but only if the right person comes along. Anyhow–we thought you might enjoy seeing her. She was a true homozygous blue Weimaraner–meaning she only produced blue pups.
