Holiday Cheer

~From our Home to Yours

Today we want to say thank you, once again, for everyone who has taken time out of their insanely busy schedule to drop us the email update. We are positive our readers also appreciate your effort.

This blue boy is Martee–the future of OwyheeStar’s Blues. Isn’t he lovely? We adore Boone, but the reality is we save girls for the future out of him–then we cannot (or we should not) breed back to them. So–fresh blood is essential. Isn’t he just grand?

Remembering Dusty

~A Few Photos

The one in the center–of course.

Of course, he sired the litter that produced Jan Magnuson’s Willow–who could forget all they have accomplished? Then too–he was the Maternal Grandfather of the first Russian Blue–Gabriel. Along with Storm–our first Longhairs arrive. What a surprise that was–we had no idea that he or Storm carried the fluffy coat recessive trait–commonly called the Longhair.

There were a lot of firsts with Dusty–including the first time we had a dog eat a rock. (OMG) Weims do ingest anything and everything. They call it Pica–eating rocks and whatnot. He got an intestinal blockage which nearly took his life, but after a piece of his intestine was removed he bounced back.

Don’t worry–we have Dusty’s lineage weaved throughout our DNA pool. Most of our current girls have him on their pedigree–which is why we had to bring in a fresh Stud Dog, not too long ago. We don’t breed back to the same lineage.

Happy Birthday Dusty

Yesterday, February 2nd, 2019, (Groundhog Day) our Dusty celebrated 14 candles. Well, he didn’t actually get the candles, but he would gladly eat birthday candles. (OMG) Cliff says the pictures look photoshopped–they were not. (Haha) The hat is too small–but cute.

Thank you, Dusty, for all you have done for so many. We are blessed to have had your company for so many years.

A Decade of Dusty

We can never know for sure how long our beloved Weimaraner will be with us. One true thing–it is never-ever long enough. Yesterday, Dusty celebrated his tenth birthday. We had the Super Bowl post from Jean and Nancy in the works; Dusty was willing to wait a day to be featured. We wanted to get out in the sunshine, and capture some milestone photos. The sunshine was hiding, and the gray skies kept weeping most of the day. We will need to save that adventure for a time when we have the time to invest; in addition, we want the weather to cooperate.

Thank You Dusty for bringing so much joy to our lives; and for sharing your wonderful looks (and temperament). It makes so many possibilities for us, as well as for dreams to come true! You are a super star!!!
