Here’s some video links and pics.The video is amusing because she seems to be avoiding getting wet despite the 100 degree temperature that day, but she will not hesitate to charge into the surf at the beach or lake to get her ball.
Hot temperatures are around the corner, and the idea of a cool dip is a good one. Weims–they can be so weird about things. I love that she gets into the surf, and I laughed that she plays with the water in the pool.
Sky loves to go hiking, snowshoeing and trail running with my bicycle.
I trained her to run next to me or behind me with the bike.
Sky still goes running or walking with Michelle pretty much every day but since her hip has begun to bother her lately, I no longer take her on bike rides, long hikes or high speed runs. She still wants to go but she pays for it later. It seems stiff after she has been laying down a while but loosens up after she moves a while.
Sadly, large breed dogs, just like their human counterpart, do wear out their parts. It is remarkable that Sky still exercises, but you are wise to keep it a bit less extreme. We love this video of her.
I wanted to give you an update on our wonderful addition, Afina (Fin). We chose her name Afina because it means blueberry (I thought of Juniper) However we call her Fin for short. The last three months have been lots of fun with her. She has had so many experiences already in a short amount of time.
Fin gets walks everyday to the beach or hills. She loves both! She has the instinct to point and sneak! It’s really amazing! She really is a sweet snuggler, but requires a good workout to get to that point. Ellen absolutely fell in love with her as soon as she laid eyes on her. The ride home went well, and it seemed like she adapted fast. She is so smart!!! Fin has a routine. She gets her breakfast from me every morning, then gets into bed with Ellen when I go to work. I’m not sure how long they get to snuggle but I get a few minutes on my days off.
Now that the days are getting longer we get better evening walks on the beach. She loves being able to run, run, run! I’ve taken her to a pleasant hunting club near Corvallis, and introduced her to a few birds. lol she kinda got scared at first, but then really zeroed in on their scent. We will be heading back there this fall after some training. Great news is she isn’t gun shy. It’s almost as if it’s in her blood or something… lolFin is growing so fast! She weighs 42# currently (and tall enough to reach the kitchen counters)!
She has lost a few teeth, and new ones are already coming in. One weird thing that happened was it seemed like possibly she started a heat cycle, but not sure. I noticed some blood for a couple of days but it went away. This happened just before her final visit for shots so I asked the vet about it. They said it’s not an issue unless it persists, which it didn’t. Fin is so happy and healthy. We just love her so much!
Thank You, Christine,, and Cliff so much for bringing her to us. and please give Juniper and Boone a big scratch for us and let them know their pup is happy and safe. She definitely is part of the family.Thanks again!
Jared and Ellen
Thank you for being a loyal OwyheeStar client. We are so happy that ‘Fin’ has fit so aptly into the family and your life. What a life with her walks on the beach–I am envious.

Hi! I wanted to give you an update on our boy Kobe! He was from your litter in March 2020 from Dalia and Boone. He is handsome and so much bigger than his sister Kaia! Lol! We love him to pieces. He loves to hike and run and ride in the boat!
Hope you have a very Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to you–so happy to hear that Kobe is doing excellent, much-loved, and all is well.
~Perfect Fit For Us
Maverick is now 7 months old and is the perfect addition to our family. Although in the beginning Mav was an irritation to our 9 year old Silver Weimaraner, Mav is now Tebow’s best friend. Tebow always watches out for Maverick. Our family loves to be out doors and so does Maverick. We have taken him fishing, riding at the dunes, deer hunting in Eastern Oregon and today bird hunting in the mountains. He is everything we ever wanted in a puppy. Thank you. We love him so much.
Randy & Becky
We are so happy to hear that Maverick has fit into your life–and that Tebow has accepted him, as well. I am sure your report will resonate with a lot of other readers.

~ 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.
~She’s Getting Bigger
She is our little girl and we love her with all our hearts. She loves the back yard and caught her first frisbee midair she loves playing ball , jumping into the hammock with mom. Her favorite thing in the yard is the fountain it is three tier and she likes the bottom she will drink water out of it and let all the water run down her face we now call it the dog wash.
It sounds like Miss Astra is doing well. The fountain thing is a hoot. Thanks for the share–we all enjoyed it.
~Head over Heels
She has stolen our hearts and I am happy to share a few recent snapshots of her. Astra is doing great we had fun at the beach with her.
