Happy Father’s Day

~To the Father of Of Our Children

I want to honor Cliff for all he does to make happy moments for me, our family, and everyone of you who live with the OwyheeStar Weimaraner.

Without him–and his very special abilities none of this would be possible. Of course, that is only a small part of his greatness in my eyes–the list would be long.

I have been honored to share 50+ years with him. The journey has been incredible –sometimes challenging, but here we are together. I am sure you can agree he is amazing. Thank You

This Week’s OwyheeStar News

Puppies

3_Zula Blue X Blue  D & P  (269)We are in the midst of preparing for puppy exits! This is “Zula Blue’s” first litter, and we are very pleased with her, and the pups she had that were sired by “Blue.” Whenever we have puppies, they must come first. Most of you realize we may every effort to answer inquiries, and varied emails in a timely manner. Regardless, if we are in the midst of something that requires our attention, we are focused on that event. Currently, our focus is on doing what the pups need to be ready to leave to join their forever families.

Puppy Testing

1_Zula Blue X Blue  D & P  (66)We have a method we use to make discovery regarding a pup’s potential, and personality. There are people who make a living doing this kind of thing. It is important to identify the pockets of strength, as well as those that might lead to a pitfall. That being said, most pups are going to be manageable, as long as you understand this breed. No matter how many times we share with people to forget their Labrador experience, they bring that mentality to the process. This can produce a lot of bad habits, and end up causing issues. If you have a character flaw, these wonderful little creatures are going to exploit it. 7_Zula Blue X Blue  D & P  (59)They want to dominate, and get the upper-paw. Even the most laid-back Weimaraner will try to mouth you, and to find ways to manipulate their environment. Two aspects to our test include getting them to retrieve (or at least chase something), and to present them with moving target. In our situation, we use a wing attached to a fishing pole. We can learn a lot about a puppy by how they engage the wing. Yes, this is good information for our hunters, but it tells us other things such as coordination, intelligence, and drive. These can all be directed toward other than hunting, but are all important for the person wanting a hunting companion.

This coming week….

The focus on the pups will continue. We have puppy-walks, and swimming. These unfold as time, and opportunity presents during our normal week. It is always and exciting time.

Here are the links for this week’s blogs….

 

Looking Forward…..

 
There will be a whirlwind of events surrounding the puppy exits slated in the next week-plus. Regardless, our blog will be published. We have some wonderful new updates. Some of these are from people who have had their current OwyheeStar Weimaraner for a goodly number of years. We truly appreciate these on-going updates. 
 
We appreciate every update, and we are working toward using everyone if possible. Sometimes an update times-out, but when we can we find a way to work it in even if it is a bit later than we expected. Anyhow, we have several excellent blogs in store for you this coming week. :O)
 
 

Many blessings and warm wishes from Shela and Cliff–(and the OwyheeStar Weimars too!)

~Thank you for being a part of our lives!
