Lily

~At the Beach

Lily spends this time of year at the beach. Sometimes we have to travel for our son and our dog sitter takes all the dogs to the beach. Lily was scared of the ocean last year, but she has worked her way into the water. She absolutely loves her time with our dog sitter.

The whole family runs the dog sitter service. Their two kids help and Lily is so loved. It is so comforting to have a place for her when I have to travel.

The best part, I get back a happy, exhausted Weim. We all know a tired Weimaraner is the best! She is such a blessing to us. She fills our heart with love and our days with laughter.

It looks like Lily is the perfect kind of tired. With your life-demands we can see how this is the perfect solution. Thank you, for loving her so much.

Remy Blue

~ Part Four

Remy Blue is instinctively a hunting dog. She loves to point, fetch and explore. She’s already chased a small bobcat out of our backyard and saved our suburban chickens. She’s fierce.

Now that we have grandmom recuperating from hip surgery and living with us, Remy Blue’s behavior has been quite gentle when around her. We count this as a true blessing and are amazed at her ability to discern when to be calm, relaxed in her mannerisms. 

Then again, Remy Blue’s toys are another issue altogether!

We’re having a wonderful time with Remy Blue being part of our family. In fact, off and on we’ve been discussing getting a “brother” for Remy Blue. After seeing the photo of the two Weims peering out the window, we’re convinced we should do it when Remy Blue turns 2 years old. 

Thank you for a wonderful being; Remy Blue is exceptional and quite a character. She’s never at a loss for expressing herself. She’s a love.

Dear Sayho–we look forward to working with you again when you become a Two Weim family. We appreciate this lovely detail (photo filled) update. I am sure our readers feel likewise. Thanks ever so much–have a lovely summer with Remy Blue.

Remy Blue

~ Part Three

Remy Blue loves her various dog beds throughout the home. From her “baby puppy” bed to her grown-up bed, she’s a snuggle bunny. She’s also a big help for my daughter with homework.

Puppy bed is a bit too small, but Remy Blue thinks she can still fit.

As a puppy, Remy Blue loved to sit behind me on my office chair. Often times, she would fall asleep in the funniest positions.

As she grew older and larger, Remy Blue opted for being cradled in my lap with her full little belly facing outward.

Here is one of our first attempts at taking a selfie. Not sure if her expression is one of concern. It was never published. 

On April 10th, 2019, Remy Blue celebrated her 1st birthday. We took a photo with her in relation to a “deck of cards”. If you remember, she was very petite at birth and a survivor. I hope you still have her birth photos; unfortunately, I “lost” all the photos and videos you sent because my Outlook got corrupted. She is grown to be around 60-65 lbs. In short time, her birthday “rabbit” was promptly chewed at the ears.

Breeder Comment

Well, we looked for the photo showing the card next to you Remy Blue–could not find it. We did find this photo of you resting in Christina’s hand–you were three days old and so tiny.

We hoped you would live–you were so precious. Look at you a year later–Happy Birthday Remy Blue.

Watch for the next (and final segment) in the update Sahyo has been so kind to share. 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.

Remy Blue

~ Part One

Breeder Comment

We begin with a little preface–so that we can better set the backdrop. Remy Blue is the lovely pup (or the only pup I could also say, born to Deja Vu 04/10/2018). To say she was tiny would be an understatement, but she had another feature which set her apart–a cowlick that ran down the front of her face. Anyhow, we are so delighted to have photos and information on this lovely pup to share with you.

Sahyo Reports

I faithfully read your daily OWNews and am delighted to read all about the many puppies and Weims from your “pack”. I’ll attempt to briefly bring you up to date on “The Wonderful World of Remy Blue”.

Remy Blue is a sweet, loving, and clever puppy. Her cowlick running down her snout is adorable. She immediately eased into our lives and placed her paw right onto our hearts. Her air travel to Carlsbad, CA (as my carryon) was uneventful and she slept through it until the descent. 

Crate training was fine including the initial few minutes of whiny protest, but soon was happily using it as her “home base”. One of her favorite places to rest is a foot pouf. Somehow Remy Blue was able to climb up and find a comfortable spot. Her puppy blue eyes are striking in this photo.

Additional Comment

Sahyo–you so kindly provided us with tidbits of information (and photos) that take her through the first year. We will post this in a few segments over the next ten days. We appreciate you flying into Boise and carrying her home to California, too. We are excited to share more information soon.

Ace

~ Update from California

Just kept thinking I needed to let you know how Ace was doing. Hopefully you were thinking no news is good news in his case! By the picture, you can see he is indeed alive and well. He still is getting both the Probiotic you recommended and the Nuvet supplements. 

He is growing and putting on a little weight thank goodness! He is currently at about 44 pounds. Still is a little prone to the looser stool towards the end of the day but I think we ALL can live with that. His adult teeth are growing in and we will be checking in with the vet in another month or so to schedule his neutering. All in all a great dog. Not too hyper. Not a barker and has only destroyed a minimal amount of things. Lol! Actually I can’t really think of anything that he actually destroyed. Maybe “diminished” a few things is more accurate.Thank goodness that he is crate trained 😊Hope all is well with you and Cliff.


Your Friends,Dee and Ace🐾

He looks to be healthy and happy. Thank you, for remembering us–it is good to hear about little ‘Ace’.

We Are Busy

~ Ace of Clubs

Ace busy pruning my wisteria this morning 😬

Vaccine

The vet has agreed to administer the vaccines according to the Weimaraner protocol. He was prescribed an antibiotic for his eyes. We are hoping that his umbilical hernia will close by itself. I think it already looks smaller. His weight was 15 and 1/2 lbs. It seemed to me that he weighed a little more when we got him but he is eating, sleeping, playing and getting longer legs!! He is a beauty❣️

Diarrhea, Etc.

~ Not what I thought (whew)!

I just wanted to let you know that all is going very well despite a young puppy’s voracious appetite and sharp teeth!!I believe we are off to a solid start. We have completed the AKC registration and the registration for the microchip. We have adjusted the feedings to 1 cup 3x a day. Unfortunately Ace thinks he needs more. Lot’s more!!You know what happens to a dog when you cross that line. Yep! Diarrhea!! We tried listening to him and that’s what we got 🙃

Just set your mind at rest, I turned in a stool sample on Saturday and it was negative 😊

He is sitting and knows his name. Mostly responds to “Ace come” when called. A terrific pottier outside 👍🏻We are monitoring the umbilical hernia but are not concerned. His eye infections are cleared up but he has to finish 3 more days of the antibiotic.I hope all the rest of his litter mates are doing well❣️🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾

Thanks for the detailed updates –we are thrilled to hear that Ace is doing well. Yes, the last minute little hernia appears to be nothing of significance. I am glad you are not worried. Over the years, we have learned that doing as little as possible with these seems to be the best choice–only fix a larger one that is more risky.

We are glad you had the stool sample checked. With young pups it is always wise to check to be sure nothing more is going on–but you have this covered. It appears other folks are doing well–at least that is what we have heard.

Greetings from Sonoma County!

~Adventures with Smokey


It’s been a cold and wet few weeks here. The mountain tops and hills around us have had a dusting of snow, which is a beautiful site since it’s not an annual thing here. Much better to see white where not long ago there was smoke and an orange glow. 


Smokey has been on many adventures with his best friend and family. We just recently went to the beach with 70-degree weather. Next stop is the snow. We had to change plans this weekend due to the almost impassable Sierra Nevada roads up to our cabin in So Lake Tahoe. Hopefully, we will update you with snow photos! 


Other adventures include riding in the little car with dad to pick the boys up from school, dressing like dad, Starbucks dates with mom, walks, riding in the back of the big truck with fluff blowing in the breeze around town, and lots of play at the dog park with sister weim (penny) and new friends. Mom has a good time too, watching all the crazy dog people just like her. 


He even has his own zip up hoody like brothers’ to keep him warm. Not so sure he even knows he’s a dog? He sure does bark with disapproval when mom puts all the dogs outside before work. But mom knows it’s a better alternative to being stuck in his cave all day until dad gets home. Luckily Penny distracts his resentment with her annoying, playful nips, as the older dogs look on with boredom. 


It’s a perfect mix of personalities in their pack hierarchy. Just like their humans.
Thanks for such a perfect pup!

We are so happy to hear about Smokey–the adventures as well as his place within the family. I am sure this will be read and enjoyed by many OwyheeStar fans. Thank You–Niki, for taking the time to put together such an excellent update.

Ducky

Mindy Reports

Brown's Ducky_2845
Ducky came into my life on his 8 week birthday.  My first Weimaraner, Ted, was a silver grey so I decided to go with a blue this time around.  People often ask me how I came up with the name Ducky.  I have a litany of answers:  he was born in Oregon, he was #7 of 9 in his litter – so  a lucky duck, he waddled a bit like a duck as a puppy, I’m Mindy Brown and there’s a famous fashion designer in NYC named Duckie Brown – but most important, I just liked the name, I found it unique and it fit him to a tee!  He has nicknames like Duskster, Duck Duck, Ducky Brown, The Baby, King of the Hill, my Angel, etc. but mostly he’s just plain ole Ducky.  He’s also my Hunter.  That hunting lineage is definitely at the forefront of his personality.  He’s always looking for something to hunt down – whether it be a fly in my kitchen or a squirrel running across my back wall.  He also thinks he’s a cat as he can leap and scale a 10’ wall.  He’s not so ball crazy as my last Weim, but he definitely likes to play – only problem is – he destroys all of his toys.  He’s definitely an elite athlete.  He loves to go to the park and play frisbee – loves to run on the beach and loves to go for rides in the car.  He likes to bask in the sun and lounge after his off leash hikes in an unincorporated area of Palos Verdes. He loves to play with other dogs and is as fast as lightning – always the leader of the pack.  He prefers to have a part of his body touching me and usually has a shoe, slipper or piece of my clothing tucked under his snout.  He likes to sit wherever I am and often times stretches a body part on me.  He’s also very loquacious – as he’s always talking to me – especially when I’m cooking in the kitchen or working on the computer.  But above everything – he loves loves loves to eat!  This dog has one mighty appetite and loves his fruits and vegetables.

I honestly didn’t think I could ever find an equal replacement to Ted, but after 3 years and several trips to Sun Valley – I put all my faith in Shela and Cliff – and my prayers were answered.  I had only two requirements:  a large blue male – and sure enough, I got that and much more.  Above and beyond all of his other great traits, he’s the SWEETEST and SMARTEST dog and an amazing companion!

She slobbered all over the ballot envelope but everyone was so impressed she carried them in.  I can’t thank you enough.  She is so smart and a great companion.  Whether it’s lounging on the couch and cuddling hard or bringing in the newspaper.  Life would be so dull without her.  I’m hooked!
IMG_3741
On another note, I adore all of your blogs and love the weekend updates on you & Cliff.  The last pic you posted of him holding the 3 pups is so good.  What a great pic.  I very much enjoyed Loki’s post today.  Ski patrol.  So awesome!  No surprise though.  These Weims are so smart and want to learn.  Amazing Shela.  Thanks for all you do.

Can we agree that Chrissy voted with Moxie? (Haha) I thought that up all by myself. (Get it?!?)
It has been quite the week. This seems like a good way to punctuate the importance of casting your ballot.
