2014 Begins….

Dear Weimlovers……

Passed on in 2013

Passed on in 2013

We enjoyed sharing last year with you. A lot transpired during 2013. We were saddened by your losses; we rejoiced in the new beginnings. There were thousands of Facebook posts, and even more emails. Hearing about your experiences brings us great joy.

Thank you for remembering us in the good times too! We made some spectacular new friends. Our lives have been enriched in ways we cannot even imagine possible.

We look forward …

Some of them will be hunters; most will be looking first, and foremost for a companion. Companions can fill varied roles, and participated in diverse activities.

No matter what you and the Weimaraner find yourself doing, it is about the relationship. This is a joint-venture of a special kind.

We take pride in finding the right match for each family that comes our direction. That being said, we wish you a wonderful start to this fabulous new year.

~ Happy New Year Weimlovers

This Week’s OwyheeStar News

Puppy Exits are happening

Octavia Bath time (7) - CopyWe don’t always post everything about the puppies, but on occasion we think we need to do this. This week, we posted some cute photos of the pups. The most recent was of them getting a bath. Cliff installed a utility sink in my laundry room, and it is perfect for the pups at this age.

FB Green Cammo Collar Bath (30) - CopyWe knew we could not bathe them all this morning and send them out the door in time. So, they got the works, and will get a little touch-up this morning. They were glad to hear it was not a repeat performance.

This process included a quick nail trim, ear cleaning, and bath. They will see these events again in the future.

Weather permitting pups swim

Comments on swimming

Swimming the pups does not ensure they will be natural swimmers. It is a good experience for them, and they are imprinted with it for the future. Nevertheless, unless a pup retrieves well, and can be enticed to water-retrieve, many will not swim on their own accord. Cliff does a good job getting the Weims to swim, and sometimes even when they learn to swim like a fish, the process is arduous. It can take a knack, and a great deal of patience to accomplish. The you tube is of one of the eight pups who swam this week.

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

Special Thanks…..

Weimar Coffee MugThank you Will and Jill for the lovely Weimar coffee mugs. I am drinking coffee out of it as I work on the blog, and make the typical Facebook post. Cliff and I appreciate you guys–your love for the Weimaraner is of course what draws us together. Thank you for being a part of the extended OwyheeStar family, and for these two lovely coffee mugs. We will cherish them always!

Upcoming Blogs 

Looking ahead, we find ourselves busy with the exits until late on Tuesday. Then we will need Wednesday (at least) to recoup. The usual agenda must continue. Living creatures do not exist without care, and that means we have things calling us each and every day. 🙂
Right now, I am not sure about the blogs we will have for this week. We are waiting for some photos; nevertheless, there is no reason to worry, we will publish a blog each day. We hope you enjoy them.  
We receive many notes thanking us for the blogs, so we know they are appreciated. 

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

~Thank you for being a part of our lives!
