~ Growing Like a Weed
Little update on our big girl!
She’s growing like a weed and finished all her puppy school with flying colors. Her favorite things include going to the dog park to play with all her friends, going on family adventures and of course her tennis balls.
We took her paddle boarding recently and she jumped right off the dock. She loved it. We love our sweet girl and could’ve have asked for a more well mannered babe to join our family.
Thanks so much, Angel & Jakob
We love receiving the updates (especially those that include photos). It is essential to find out how the OwyheeStar pups from every mating work out–and it helps us ever so much with having material for our blog. Thanks for all you are doing for and with Pepper.
You might remember Mesquite–she has been on the blog quite frequently. She is a retired Mama who found the perfect Golden Year Placement. Lyle has been faithful to keep us apprised of their journey. Not long ago poor Mesquite had a serious accident–she is alive due to Lyle’s quick response. We cannot thank him enough for the love and all he does for her. Please read on what Lyle had to share with us last week.
Mesquite waiting for something to come her way!
A beautiful dog.
We are getting snow today!
Later in the Day
Skeet had a ball this morning out in the fresh new snow. She acted like a six-month-old pup.
She has her belly full and is fast asleep.
Gabriel began her life (on February 28, 2012) at OwyheeStar. She was one of seven pups born to Livee’s litter (which was sired by OwyheeStar’s Once In A Blue Moon). Some of her littermates have made an OwyheeStar Blog News appearance; none more than the amazing Maizie. There are some other pups from the same parents; however, they were born a year later. Possibly, the most famous of these lives in Idaho (Charlie Blue). Gabriel was the first blue to arrive in Russia. She traveled via courier and arrived safely. Of course, there was a huge adjustment period after the relocation. Nevertheless, she came through and shines bright. The judges like her beauty and conformation. Two participations and two positive outcomes. You can read more on Igor’s website (click here )!
We look forward to hearing more about Gabriel and her successful offspring– The Blue Girl O’Hara which netted the BJB (Best of Junior Breed).

This Story is For Real!
Ginger, Ilsa, and Indi up the Tree
Just when you thought you didn’t have anything new to worry about along comes tree climbing Weims. We suspect they got the idea from the Internet. After all, it is the Information Age. They suggested a trip to Morroco; however, the Oregon Coast provided ample opportunity to practice their skill. Check out the tree-climbing goats. They are an Internet sensation.
Ilsa and Indi
They are a dynamic duo — sisters. One was a rescue that joined the family later, but both are cemented firmly into the Western Oregon family life. They have been featured many times on the OwyheeStar News Blog. You won’t want to check out these cute photos of the girls doing their thing.
The official status of Weim markings is not applicable. Nonetheless, there are many coat variations in the breed. This marking; however, is quite possibly one of the most adorable. Check out the other kinds of coat variation by clicking here!
Shiny meets Snow
Winter adventures may include snow as well as the Weimaraner. Some of the updates have had the greatest photos captured encased in the winter wonderland. Nonetheless, the first snow experience is unique. It will only happen once. Here is Shiny (this week) in the mountains of Colorado seeing his first snow. Let the adventure begin. There is more to come Shiny!
Yesterday was this crazy pup’s birthday. She finally made it to a year old (I had my doubts). I can not believe that it was a year ago we got a call from OwyheeStar Weimaraners (Shela and Cliff Nielsen), and we started the process of bringing Lexi home with us. Who knew she would become as important to us as some people’s kids are? ( lol) We could not have asked for a better pal than Lexi. We love this crazy little dog and we are excited to look forward to many more adventures together!!!
Therefore, we did what any good parents would do and threw her a birthday party, with a cake and treats for all her doggy friends!!!
Breeder’s Comment — We are happy to hear Lexi has celebrated her birthday in style. There is no way to understand just how life changing the Weimaraner experience is until you take the journey. Thank you for remembering us and for loving Miss Lexi so much. We sincerely hope she brings you years of joy.
She Changed Our World
Lazy dog days of summer coming to an end. We’ve always wondered what Winnie does with her days when we are not home. We know that her and Max (our 6-year-old Chocolate Lab), play, but seeing her sunbathing was a site to see. I was excited to be able to capture it and, of course, I shared it on Facebook for everyone to see.
Winnie and Max love to go for rides
Many times we take them separately. In this way, we can have invaluable one on one time with them.
Winnie is also learning how to bird hunt and perfect her pointing skills. I love capturing her different puppy stages as she gets older (she’s eight months old). I can’t wait to see what she has I store for us in the adventure of our lifetime together. Winnie has changed our world, and we love her to the moon and back.

As you know, Skye is my velcro dog. She follows me everywhere and tries to help with the chores around the property. So time to water the plants and Skye carries the empty watering can back to the spigot so I can fill it up again. Oh, I was hoping that is what she was doing, had a mental lapse-hahaha! In reality, she likes to steal the can and try to engage me in play since that is what SHE wants to do. Sky is always up for entertaining me that is for sure!!
