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.

~ 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.

~ Stone

Ready to Make Folks Smile

Stone is stealing hearts left and right when we go on walks or to the park.

My next goal is to get him in the water. It’s warming up now so I’ll do that soon. I’ll send pics when I do.

I am grateful for him every single day. He is a very special little guy. 

I hope you are well!!
Victoria

He likes being under cover –Haha

We are ever so happy to hear about Stone and his business around town–so to speak. I am glad he loves people.

Dyson

~Loves People

Dyson is well and growing fast. He goes to puppy class and is a superstar. He also goes to puppy socialization play dates weekly. He’s a little shy to get started but once he observes for awhile he’s happy. If he gets overwhelmed he finds someone’s legs to stand in between. He loves people!  One of the supervisors said he is a polite puppy which made me proud.

At home he’s in love with playing with Leo and Leo has accepted him fully.  Dyson is very interested in people first dogs second. And he likes to sit watch and observe new situations. Oh he’s going to be such a smart dog!!

We appreciate the update (including the photos)–and especially insight into living with this lovely boy. Thanks for remembering us–it means a lot.

True Story

~Mesquite and Lyle

Mesquite is in good health, still quite active, loves morning walks. She is great pleasure to be around, and at this time sound to sleep by my chair.

I was just looking at your latest photos. You have some nice pictures of some young blue Weimaraner’s.  I think I detect some of Mesquite’s lineage in those young dogs, eyes, ears, blocky head and overall appearance.

We are taking her to Wallowa Lake in September for a few days. I am sure she will have a ball. She has no trouble traveling in a car anymore. She doesn’t get sick, like when we first got her. She loves to go. Doesn’t like it when she had to stay home.

Mesquite (Moxie X Benton) –your OwyheeStar’s lineage.

Bernie’s lineage most certainly contains Mesquite’s DNA markers. You have a good eye, my friend. Bernie (Millie X Stackhouse) is the mother of that current litter of pups. Millie (Moxie X Benton) was Bernie’s Mama–the maternal Grandmother of the current pups.

It is a good thing she got over the anxiety that caused her to get carsick. You have done well with her. Thank you, for this update as well as everything else you provide for this lovely girl’s Golden Year Placement. We truly appreciate it.

Remy Blue

~ part two

Trips to the “holistic” vet have been fine. No issues with the titer testing, in fact, our vet was quite pleased with your protocol. Remy Blue did fine. Next big milestone is spaying sometime this summer.

Remy Blue took to initially swimming in our pool. She is much more adept at the water than Riley, our last Weim.

Car rides are fun, but Remy Blue becomes sad when my daughter, Evi exits the car for her activity. The tears of a Weim are so heartfelt. She also likes drinking my coffee; she seems to want me to stop at Starbucks for another.

Beach walks are fun for Remy Blue. She seeks out other dogs and wants to run and catch the water. I thinks she likes being a California Weim.

Breeder Comment

It is so great to see Remy Blue in her element and to hear how well she is doing at the Vet Visits, traveling, and enjoying the beach. Yes–she is a California girl.

Finn

~Inside or Out

Not so long ago we brought Finn home

So, Finn is doing really well. Here are a couple of recent videos

Thank you, for the photos and videos–as well as the newsy notes letting us know that things are going well.

Stone

~Making Friends–Stealing the Show!

I think of you all the time, how could I not. Stone is so perfect – even his naughtiness is a joy. EVERYONE who meets him falls in love. I’m thinking when he is two, he may need a little OwyheeStar brother. 
He has brought me so much joy – at a time that isn’t easy otherwise. If only teenagers could learn from puppies (mine especially). 

We have abandoned the crate and leave Stone alone with Blue during the day for no more than four hours at a time – he is perfect – no destruction, no accidents – what a change from our first Weim! 

Stone steals the show at Puppy Elementary Class – hmmm but they haven’t seen him on a walk! 

The only challenge is the wake up call at 4 am. I’m thinking I need to make dinner later – maybe that will help him to sleep past 4 am??? Even though an early breakfast is a pain, his after snuggle under the covers almost makes it worth it. 

Love, love, love my Stone. 
Victoria

We cannot thank you enough for keeping us updated on Stone. We are ever so happy that you love him so much. Thanks again!

Stone

~The Little Blue Guy

We just got the results back from the 16 week Titer test. Stone tested positive for both antibodies, which is great! However, the vet technician warned me that Stone could still be at risk and that they suggest the 16 week vaccination. I am holding strong. 


Stone is very much at home here, loves his big brother, Blue, tolerates his crate, devours his food and then heads for Blue’s bowl (and shock of shock, Blue lets him eat from his bowl!), and continues to be the world’s best snuggler. Everyone stops me on our daily walks to coo over how sweet he is. Stone is really smart too – and we start Obedience Classes in May. 


But who leaves out dog treats when a Weim is waiting for the vet???


Thank you for our little angel. We love him so. 
Best, 
Victoria

As I always say–thank you, Victoria, for the update on Stone. You have been so excellent as sending things that I can share on the Blog. It means a lot to us.

We love to hear that Stone has settled into his routine and that he is doing well in every way. These photos are precious. I know everyone is going to appreciate seeing them.

Ace

~Our Gorgeous Blue Boy

I know I expressed concern over Ace’s size – and sometimes loose stools, I think I have been stressing way too much about his growth and the late afternoon loose stools.

He (Ace) by all appearances is healthy, and now that I realize he is probably going to be somewhat undersized (which I don’t care) I am able to breathe a sign of relief. He is perfect in every other way. I can’t thank you enough for your support. You and Cliff do an amazing job! ~Dee

We understand that he is your baby and you could be overly concerned about every detail. He looks to be thriving to us–about what we would expect. We didn’t realize he would be smaller–even though that particular lineage does produce small-sized Weims. No one can guess size when the DNA pool draws from a larger grouping of various sized Weimaraners. The pup can take its cue from any number of ancestors–ultimately, health is the essential factor. Thanks for updating us!
