Love

What Does It Look Like?

It doesn’t require an explanation if you know what we are talking about–such a loyal friend is not one you come by every day. Maybe you are blessed indeed. We sincerely hope it is true.

Doc Holiday

It’s Been Almost Six Years

Just wanted to say Thank you. We got Doc Holiday from you almost 6years ago. He is the smartest sweetest dog. He has brought joy to our lives. Thanks again. Also, love reading your daily posts. 

What Else Can I Say?

He is very routine oriented. If my alarm goes off and I do not get up he will tap me with his paw to wake me back up. He is more than happy to sleep in on the weekend, but if the alarm goes off. It is time for his breakfast! He also will wake you up to cover him up at night. He loves his blanket.

Merry Christmas a little early.

We are ever so thankful that you took time to update us on your wonderful family member–Doc Holiday. What fabulously clever name, too! 

Berkley

     ~ Talks about Life

Is this what you are looking for?

Sometimes humans need help. Woof! There is all that housework. Then too, they cannot find their stuff. Speaking of stuff–they cannot seem to keep track of their glasses.

I recently read a post where a Weimar back East was involved with the glasses thing. Yes, I help find them. Sometimes we contemplate the complexities of life together. The biggest job I have is keeping a confidence–I think that is sometimes called a secret. I keep all kind of private stuff private. I am really good at listening –I never judge my humans.

We understand that taking care of a family is a big job. What more can we say? Thanks for all your hard work, Berkley.

The photo you posted yesterday made me send you this when April and I get up, they get in bed and take our place!

How many OwyheeStar Weims like to crawl under the covers. We all know that this is a thing. Some share the bed with their owners. Others might not be able to take it over until their ‘hoomans’ get up. Either way, they take full advantage when given the opportunity. Isn’t this about the cutest thing ever?

The Nose Knows

Skye

     ~On the Scent

20181009_130902Our girl Skye is doing great! Vet check and vaccination went really good. She is so social and loving. She makes me giggle when she gets “on the scent” while we are on a walk and she is nose to the ground, tail in the air and those little legs are just beebopping along as if she is dancing on some kind of imaginary line and only her nose knows where she is going. It is the absolute cutest thing. She loves to snuggle and play. And often is found in some strange sleeping positions.

Couldn’t imagine any other breed for our family. We are so in love.

We are so happy to hear that Skye is making your heart happy as well as providing plenty of entertainment. Knowing the story behind the story, we are doubly thrilled to hear how happy you are with the experience. Ah–you are either a Weimar person or not. I think I told you they are somewhat addicting, too. (Haha)
People like you make the work worth doing. Thanks, again!

One Year Plus

Hello from Pocatello, Idaho

     ~Did someone say TREAT!

Dejah-754b71a1d14f (1)Here is Dejah Thoris (Mesquite x Stackhouse) at 1 year 2mo…and 84 lbs!  Her older sister by one year, Vizsla named Ayla, is 54 lbs. They eat the same amount of food but Ayla is an obsessive squirrel hunter who will focus on the task for hours while Dejah comes back in the house after 30 minutes to sit on the couch with me.
We are loving our very big puppy!

Thank you, both for thinking of us with this fabulous photo and the news about Dejah. I think Dejah knows her role within the family structure.

Struck Gold, Again

Our Quinn

    ~He is Amazing!

We just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you and Cliff for this amazing little guy. He’s the perfect addition to our family, and makes us laugh daily with his goofy personality.

image3I think we struck gold again because Quinn is just as mellow as Jake was as a pup. He house trained quickly, is very smart, and goes right along with the rest of the pack as you thought he would. Our girls absolutely adore him.
We’re so grateful for the work that you and Cliff have done to give our boys the best foundation! Hope you are well.
Sincerely,
Lindsay and Quinn’s Human family

We appreciate loyal clients like you–and we are beyond happy that your second OwyheeStar worked into the family so well.
We truly appreciate the update. Thanks, ever so much.
PS: You know how we feel about calling any Weimaraner mellow–Mellow Weimaraner qualifies as an oxymoron. (Haha)

The Early Stage

Our Maelee

~Enjoying Life

3062

She loves playtime with the kids, fetching & retrieving every day. Introduced her to the sheds, though we’ll wait a little longer due to height and she can still be a bit clumsy at times.

She is very smart & likes to test us (repetition is key); we’ve used hand signals along with voice commands throughout her training (helpful for hunting later on, we prefer this method over whistle training). Overall she is very loved, happy, healthy and has made her place in our hearts. We look forward to every new adventure, and with our very active family, she has much to look forward, too!

3116Training is going great! 1st time playing in the sand this week, too!

We love the photo documentation. Thanks for that! We love seeing she is working at the Versatile lifestyle thing–all terrain Weimar.

Wondering

Pushkin

    ~Wavy Hair

Clement's Pushkin 183422
I have included Pushkin’s neuter certificate. Please let me know if this will suffice or if you need me to mail you a hard copy.
He obviously does not like the E collar; however, he caught on quickly to the fact that if he quit licking he didn’t have to wear it.
We start intermediate obedience training on the 29th. Unfortunately, we have to put his “swimming lessons” on hold for at least 10 days. When we went to the lake the first of the week he would go into the water until it was chest high but no swimming yet.

Just out of curiosity, do either of his parents have wavy hair on their back? Push has a large patch of the most beautiful short wavy hair😊 Push has beautiful hair. Everyone that pets him comments on how soft his coat is.

Breeder Comment

Thank you, for the neuter certificate. We are happy to hear you continue to work on his training. It is great you have enrolled in Obedience Training–the swimming lessons have to wait. Nonetheless, we suspect they remain on the horizon.
Keep working on the water when he heals. I believe you have said he has a strong retrieve. Cliff can help you with advice if it comes to that, but just keep him retrieving in the water and give no thought to anything. Make it fun–work him along the edge. When he is totally comfortable, you might want to attach a rope to your dummy and toss it on the cusp of him needing to swim–very slowly (and without concern, knowing you’ve got this) toss it ever so slightly beyond his comfort zone. With a rope, you could nudge it back a little way. you can reel it in if necessary. You’ve got this.
I don’t remember Dixie having it. Boone does not. Nevertheless, Dixie (Greta X Stackhouse) is a Longhair Carrier. That can travel forward for many generations without folks knowing it is present.

 

Ah—he may well be a carrier of the Longhair DNA marker. It does improve the coat a lot. Some Weims have sparse hair that is very coarse.

Introducing

Bear

IMG_20180224_132721_1

I just want to thank you both again for bringing this little boy (“Bear”) into my life. He had a rough time in his first few weeks of life, and it was questionable if he would pull through. But he is a survivor and is definitely making up for lost time.
We are having a great time bonding and getting to know each other. He is super smart and has already learned to retrieve to my hand (amazing!). He is such a fast learner. I’m impressed. We have many more things to learn together. MVIMG_20180224_190018
You both do a great job and I am thankful for your gift.

I included some cute pics of Bear for you 😍

Breeder Comment

This pup is the little boy who gave us so much concern. A round of antibiotics and he bounced back with no sign of an issue. He has such a great personality. Not every pup gets off to the perfect start. No Breeder wants to talk about mortality rates. Places like AKC publish those statistics. We secretly are thankful our numbers are below average. Nonetheless, no one can avoid every problem. It is impossible.

We are happy that you folks wanted ‘Bear’ even knowing full well about his early challenges. We are blessed indeed to meet some of the planet’s best humans. Thank you, for loving this boy so much.
