~OwyheeStar’s Special Delivery
She was approaching sixteen candles when she suddenly departed planet earth–these photos were taken during her last romp. It was Spring 2017, and what a legacy she left. Her DNA is weaved throughout the OwyheeStar lineages–what a girl she was–we are so thankful for the time we had together.
Deli Celebrates 14.5 Years
No one can predict how long any living creature will stick around. As you have heard us say many times, every day is precious. Deli has two large marble size growths on her side. We have opted not to have surgery. They are not growing rapidly, and there are tradeoffs with any surgery. A couple of years ago we had a growth removed. Since then she has been bump-free which is almost a miracle at her age. This breed is notorious for their lumps and bumps. Some need taken care of, and others are cosmetically annoying.
Deli is a little wobbly at times; however, overall she is doing great for an old gal.
Delightful Deli Sticks Around 🙂
Many of the OwyheeStar gems have her DNA woven into their personality. May they all do as well as Deli. We can hope. We know you will agree with us. As long as she is doing well, and her health can be managed we are going to keep her around. We are not going to let her suffer. That would be unthinkable. She has given so much to all of us. We give her a natural supplement that has made a different in her mobility. That makes her happy. It causes us to smile. Anyhow, at this time she doesn’t seem to be any pain. Isn’t that grand?
Doing Well for her Age
As you can see for an old gal, she gets around really well. The big issue with Deli is for her to know her limitations–like us humans she forgets she should not do certain things. This frame of mind is a great concern to us. She still thinks she is two years old. She is a beautiful girl don’t you agree?
She is 13 Years Old Today!
Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday Deli!
These photos of Deli (and Cliff) were taken last spring. As you can see, she is still spry. No one can guess how long their Weimaraner will live. Deli is doing excellent. We hope this continues on for her. Many of you would find her in your pedigree. For a girl who produced several litters, she is in incredibly great health. We had to have a benign tumor removed in 2012. That was the only hiccup in the path so far. Isn’t she grand? By the way, her actual name is OwyheeStars Special Delivery. “Deli” is her call name.
