Griffey

It has been so long since we have reached out. Alex and I just wanted to update you on Griffey and as always say “Thank you” for such a special member of our family. 


We recently welcomed 2 new baby girls into our lives and Griffey is still adjusting as the older brother but starting to understand that there IS enough love to go around between all three of them (he is very much still a puppy himself). Griffey is the best running partner (Alex and I are training for a half marathon) and as we have learned over the past few years… he either gets a long run to start the morning or a solid 30-60 minutes of retrieving at the dog park and he is set for a “less” mischievous day…hah. Griffey is an amazingly loyal companion, always Sticking to our side when we are out hiking and scouting. He cuddles from 5pm at night and sleeps in longer than anyone else in the morning… he will even sneak into the guest room if someone is visiting and just to cuddle and nap a little longer. We Are blessed to have him.

Congratulations on the twin baby girls–what an event. I love that Griffey is doing well with all the changes. Most of all–thank you for updating us on Griffey. We are delighted, along with our readers. Thank you!

Sunny

~Update from Captain Rod


A smart trainer/breeder once told me that the best life insurance you can give your dog is to train him well so all of your friends and relatives will love him and want him if something happens to his owner. If something ever happened to me, my friends would fight over who gets Sunny.


One of the many things I love most about my OwyheeStar blue Weimaraner is he absolutely loves everybody from little kids to adults.  He’s not just attached to me, he’s happy to be on a new lap from a new friend.


Around Christmas every year we go up to Lake Tahoe to visit friends and enjoy the snow. My two friends also have two labradors that Sunny has fun wrestling with.   When he’s bounding through the deep snow in the forest, he’s truly in his element.    On the way home, we visited two more friends that have 2 very sweet and high drive hunting dogs that he met.  The rules were a bit more flexible in this household, and the dogs and humans dined together.  Sunny gets along with other dogs very well, but if he’s mounted, he will object with some growling and barking.  Can’t blame him there.


Sunny and I have come to some agreements a long time ago, and he’s flexible in various situations.  He will stay on his bed if necessary and behave quietly, or if the rules are loose, he’ll party with other dogs as crazy as ever.  He’ll happily ride in the backseat on long trips for as long as necessary.  He heels off leash, and runs free on walks when it’s safe.  His training of me is almost complete I’ve been told.

You may or may not remember Sunny’s earliest beginning on the catamaran with Rod–click here. I have often dreamed of sailing with Sunny–and I suppose it is possible (www.sailfuncat.com ), but we are pretty much tied to OwyheeStar for now. It makes is very happy to know Sunny continues to delight others and is a great companion for Rod. Happy New Year to you, Sunny, and your humans, too.

Our Astra

~Working to Become our best together

Wearing her new Christmas Collars

Astra is doing good and we love our snuggle bug she is still in training. She is fearful of strangers runners and bicyclists but she is doing better.

A wonderful day at Sauvie Island 

We taught her to swim and she loves it she wags her tail while she swims. And we still love hanging out at the beach. Thank you for our baby. ~ Tanya

Keep up the great work. It is so great that Astra swims–all Weimaraners can swim. Not everyone accomplishes the swim, however, but we would love it if they did. Weims can be wonky. I was going to write about this trait, but maybe I will just throw that out there and let everyone mull that thought over. (Haha)

Pepper Ann

~ At One

Heres some updated pictures of Pepper Ann. She just turned a year old and still loves adventuring with mom and dad and now her little sister we just welcomed to the family a week ago. She’s been pretty gentle and seems to understand her baby is fragile.

Thanks again for such a great pup

CW

~A Weim and His Boy

Hello! Our OwyheeStar Blue Boy is maturing–We loved the post featuring Loki from the same parents (Dixie X Boone).


Also, I have not forgotten our previous discussion about one day getting s long hair Veim.  They are unique and pretty.  Please keep me in mind.

Breeder Comment

Hello, again. We are happy to learn that CW is doing well. We look forward to working with you once again, when you are ready for your first Longhair.

Knobby

~ PJs with Style

Knobby got his new PJ’s, now he’s truly the Knobigator 🐊

I found an Etsy store (majStyle) that specializes in Weimaraner, Vizsla, Greyhound body types. She make pj’s, hats, shirts, and neck-warmers based on your pups measurements. Took about 4 weeks but worth the wait.
Knobby looks adorable and has received many compliments. I love dressing him up and he’s getting really good about it. Hats are still a little questionable. 

Christmas attiring coming soon…

Thank you–for the photos, the videos, and the news. What a great life you have together.

Baby ‘T’

~Made it Safely to California

(Saturday October 26, 2019) What a day…and we’re not done yet!  Baby “T” (name still under discussion) was great meeting friends and relatives today in Roseville and he was perfect on the drive home.  This was taken after a wave of relatives had left just before we left Roseville.

He comes with the ability to run after small children (very happily). I’ve had a half dozen alerts that the power would go out at 4 p.m. It’s now 5:30 and the car is unpacked and I still have power but wanted to get this to you today as we could be without power until Wednesday.  Not a big deal really…glad its a weekend. 


Love to you both, Barb

It always makes us happy to know a puppy has made it safely and is making an excellent adjustment. All the socialization and work should set you up for success, but it is an ongoing process. Thanks for the news. We sincerely hope you are safe. Let us know how things go.

Birthdays Happen

~Like this One for Ducky

Dear Ducky–it is hard to believe it has been five years since you left OwyheeStar to live in sunny California. The last update was about a year ago–click here if you want to read it.

There were a lot of other OwyheeStar Weimaraner birthdays on Facebook. I would try to list a few here, but I will let their humans do that if they wish. Otherwise, I would for sure, miss a few. Happy birthday–Ducky!

Knobby

~At 6.5 Months

What a delight and challenge our boy is. It has been 12 years since we had a puppy in the house and even longer since it was a “big” puppy… Our current pet family consists of two cats, two senior mini dachshunds, a horse, and our newest addition, Knobby. He is 6 1/2 months now and growing like a weed. He loves toys especially his jolly ball and his piggy. The doxies are still out on their new brother but the do enjoy the snuggle time they get when he’s asleep (about the only time they like him). The kitties have a love hate relationship with him, he likes them, licks their heads and wants to play with them but they are not fond of his style of play, chasing.

Knobby is clueless to their indifference, he loves them all including the horse. In fact, he pretty much loves everyone he meets. 

He attended puppy socialization class and excelled, he’s gone on multiple camping trips and truly loves the forest. He’s extremely smart. Unfortunately he’s learned how to open doors and the sensor touch trash can. 😳What an absolute character, we love him so much.

Thank you, Darlene for this great update on Knobby. A puppy is always a challenge, but a Weimaraner–well that is a lot more challenging.
