Stone

~ Celebrates Two Candles

Stone’s second birthday is today–December 29. He celebrated by a long romp on the beach chasing balls.

He continues to win everyone’s heart. Even the new vet can’t get over him! Blue is a rare color of Weim here in Santa Barbara! He is the friendliest, goofiest, sweetest dog I’ve ever known.

Even when he wakes me up at 5 am for breakfast I can’t get mad at that cute little face! We love him to the moon and back!  Still looking for a new house and then will be looking for a third Weim to add to the pack. His older brother, Blue, is really slowing down at almost 12. Hope you are well and ready for a New Year, we sure are!

Some of you might remember Stone moved to California not so long ago–click here to read about the relocation. We are glad he is doing well and much-loved. Thanks for thinking of us and allowing us to post this story.

That’s Our Mr. Wilson

One more of him thinking I won’t notice him stealing a pillow! Lol

The pictures are extraordinary and show us what a life Mr. Wilson leads. Thank you for always remembering us. I know you lead a busy life with your practice and your riding. I love reading about the events and your continued success. Thanks for being a long-time client–people like you make our efforts so worthwhile.

Mr. Wilson

~We call him that because he is just that special

We call Wilson Mr Wilson because he is just that special Very very smart so he keeps us on our toes! He belly’s up to our bar like a person and can reach most anything wants. We don’t know how much more he will grow because his hips are 3” higher than his shoulder and his shoulders will catch up!

We feel very fortunate to have Mr. Wilson in our lives! When he plays with toys, his favorite is most anything bigger than him or at least 2 toys! Thank you Shela and Cliff for another amazing Weim ♥️♥️♥️

I am not sure how you discovered all those years ago, or why you initially chose us, but our relationship spans several Weims and more than one decade. We are blessed to share the love of the Weimaraner. Thanks for your loyalty.

Earl Grey

~A Bundle of Energy and Joy

Earl was born February 28 and came to us during California’s quarantine.  We weren’t really planning on getting a puppy but all of our kids were home and it seemed like a good thing to do.  We are so glad we did!  Earl has brought us so much joy (and so many smiles!) 

We’ve been working on swimming, though he would much rather be retrieving his ball, which he could do all day long.  Earl had endless energy so we’ve started taking him on hikes in the Santa Monica Mountains.  He is becoming quite the fitness trainer as he does not allow us to be stationary for long!  And everyone who meets him is enamored by his striking good looks.  (Luckily, he doesn’t realize how handsome he is.)

We are so grateful to Owyheestar for making our dreams come true of owning a Weim and getting us this wonderful dog!

Since Earl loves the retrieve, you should be able to work him into the water –for the water retrieve. Swimming is easier on the joints and burns a lot of energy. If you have a pond where you can work him along the edge, it would be a good plan to work on the water–slowly getting him to go further and further into the water. At first, toss along the end–where he will swim, this should be easy peasy.

Sherlock (Part Four)

~ From Lilah – Age 12

Sherlock has been a dream come true, honestly. The years leading up to him coming home, I wanted a dog SO BADLY!!! I remember the day he came home, from the way all three of us stacked up to peer through the tall window next to the door, to the way he stumbled as his frightened eyes caught the first glance of his siblings. He was right to be frightened, we would tear up his peaceful life with his little puppy siblings and his momma and change it into one full of adventure, kisses, hugs, and so many memories. He’s a crazy dog, one that lights up our lives so much. For the almost 4 years we’ve had him, I’ve looked forward to seeing him in the morning, coming back from my Mom’s to see him, and just doing anything with him. His reaction tells us he feels the same way, first howling as he’s awoken from his sleep, then catching a glance of us from the bend in the stairs, and then still howling but somehow whining and spinning in circles with his tail an invisible blur, as he rockets over to his bed where he waits while we make our entrance. Having that welcome home is always something I look forward to. Who knew, an animal, someone we can’t understand or be understood by, could love so much and just be such an individual.

He’s got this way of knowing when you’re upset, and just being there. He’s a cuddler, and can be found most of the time under the covers, taking up the entire bed in my brothers room, where he usually sleeps. When he’s not with Lucas, he’s somewhere else, laying on top of someone and being sooo cute. He’s an example of how loving we can all be – if all we do is think about food, hikes, sleep, and his hoomans. Even if we can’t all be like Sherlock, a cute little bug that is literally only a heart with legs, we can all think about how we can be happier and make people happier. I couldn’t imagine my life without Sherlock, and I’m so happy I don’t have to. He’s a part of our lives that brings us all together, from laughing at him being a nut, to all hiking with him, or taking him to the park and watching his victory laps as he proudly struts around, bragging that he caught his ball. He’s so incredible, and has taught me so much about life and living it. Thank you, Buddy.

We love your description, Lilah, of life with Sherlock. It is fabulous to have a different perspective. Cliff and I cannot be happier that he fills your life with joy and mirth–it is why we do what we do.

Sherlock (Part One)

~Greetings from Northern California!


We are long, long overdue to send you an update on Sherlock, so we are making up for it by sending you a lot!  Beau and I have included about 15 pics from his pup days until now.  Beau’s three kids each wrote their own update and we will send each of them along separately with a couple of pics of each kid with Sherlock.  We know you love to have material on your pups and this way you have some you can send out as/when you see fit.  Sherlock is wonderful and is a happy, healthy and active boy who brings so much joy to our lives – thank you so much and we hope you are both safe and healthy during these difficult times.

We are thrilled to share several segments in the coming week that feature Sherlock (Zula Blue X Blue). We appreciate all the effort you and the kids put into sending this update. We know our readers will feel the same.

Meet Earl

He is here 💕

We are already in love.

Earl is settling in quite nicely!  Here he is napping with “big sister” Mini. Look at the difference in the length of their front legs!

You have been so great to work with during the process–with all the challenges and this COVID-19 thing. We truly appreciate it. We know you are going to do great with Earl–please keep us updated.

At Home with Frank

Frank has really settled in! He has a vet appointment this morning for a vaccine, stool sample, etc. Crate training is going well and he’s such an adventurous little guy.

We’re working through potty training (he seemed to regress a bit after we settled in at home) and nipping at our toddler (normal puppy stuff!) but we’re working on it and we’re so thankful for Frankie!

You are doing great. What great photos of your new Weimar family member. Keep us posted. We truly appreciate it.

Dasher

~Not Something you See Every Day

Here is our Dasher, our Weimaraner version for Snoopy on his doghouse!

He has grown into such handsome lad.

We are quarantined but also enjoying our boys antics. 

Hope you and Cliff are staying safe and sound.

What a guy–Dasher put a smile on my heart. Thank you for remembering us and sharing your sweet photo.

Lily’s Mom

I just had to share some recent pics from her recent beach adventure. My favorite is the first–

Lily goes to a doggie day care (A dog SITTER) with a family who opened a dog sitting service. Most pups stay 7-5. But if you go out of town. They keep them overnight. I started using them because they had a Weim. His name was Hatcher. They understand Lily and have a special place in their heart for her. This is where she stays with the day care once a week, and stays with them every time I need a place for Lily overnight.

They had planned to only have day camp dogs when I asked if they could keep Lily over overnight, they said yes–and took her camping. It is the first camping trip in a tent on the beach for Lily. They did beach day and the other dogs left, and Lily camped at the beach with the family. They lost their Weim (not too long ago) and are not ready for another dog, but just love love our Lily. So here are some day and night time pics from her adventure. Of course my favorite is the one she looks like ET w her blanket and headlamp on–at the top of this post.

Not everyone can or does use daycare–but several OwyheeStar Weims seem to benefit. Whether this is doable or not will depend upon early socialization, the particular Weimaraner, and the available options. Some Weims love going to daycare–for certain families, it is essential to have this option available — what an extraordinary situation for Lily with a Weim-loving family.
