Featured Weimaraner — Magnum


Magnum, the new kid at Mike and Monica’s Place

Magnum is doing great!

(Michael wrote) At the last vet check she (Melissa Albert) said, Magnum is going to be bigger than Hemi. Hemi and Sophie are also doing great. Hemi has taken on the mission to be a mother to Magnum and she’s doing a excellent job. Sophie tolerates him while in the house. But, likes him as a hunting buddy when outside…

Magnum has been perfect for us!

(Monica wrote) Magnum loves Michael so much and is happy to meet people.  He loves to play and is very birdy or a very nosey dog.  Always sniffing out things.  He likes to take a bath and overall just loves to get into everything.  I told Michael that is name was nono, ha.

Magnum is normal and gets into the usual Weimar trouble!

We will getting a new couch in about 18 months, too.  He loves my ear plugs and Michael always asks me if I want them back after he finds them in Magnums poo.  No thank you.!  He loves to be outside and finding things like my chickens and of course is new thing chasing leaves all around.

We want to thank you for a great dog.  

I would have said little guy, but he is getting bigger and bigger.  Sophie is the only one that has an issue with him.  She just does not know what to do with him, so she yipes at him when he gets near her.  At the end of the day you can find her on the couch with him laying next to her or with his head near her butt both sleeping on the couch, she has given up at that point.  He just like to be near her.  Hemi makes him mind is p’s and Q’s.  But she plays with him too. Other than he still has loose stools for part of the day, he is a growing and fun loving little guy.

Breeder’s Note: Try adding some plain pumpkin to his diet everyday. It will most likely clear up a slight digestive imbalance. It is also a healthy snack. You can use canned pumpkin, or if you find regular pumpkins, you can bake and freeze them. You can also try sweet potatoes baked and given as a snack.

The heartache of loss

The recent passing of Turbo left a gap in Michael (and Monica’s) hearts. Turbo was their first OwyheeStar. Those of us that lived the journey will never forget him. He had a winning personality, that lead to earning firehouse hot dogs all too often. He was irresistible. We will never forget his pilfering, and how he found a castoff artificial tree branch covered in delicious tasting leftovers, and ingested it. His life was filled with fun, joy, antics, and a few accidents. He will live on in our hearts. He could not be replaced. Nonetheless, Michael needed a new sidekick, and they added Magnum. He is their fourth OwyheeStar Weimaraner.

Before Magnum there were three

Hemi, Turbo, and Sophie with Monica

Mike and Monica fell in love with Turbo, and they wanted a female to add to their family. They brought home Hemi. Yes, Turbo and Hemi (cute names), filled their lives with so much joy that they wanted to open their home to another Weimaraner in need. Sophie was returned after a relationship change happened where she was no longer wanted. They opened their hearts(and home) to Sophie. They tried to change her name to Shadow, but she would not accept the name change. There were ups and downs in the working through of Hemi and Sophie getting along. Two females both wanting to run the show didn’t make it easy on Mike and Monica, and Turbo either. Nonetheless, they kept their commitment to Sophie, and she is much loved. We thank them for that!
