~Perfect For Us
I have always meant to update you on the puppy we got from you back in Oct 2017. We absolutely love him. We lost a pet cat shortly after getting him ( heart failure/diabetes). It was my daughter’s cat. We found her a new friend, a little black cat, about 1 when we got him. The two are such good friends ( Picture above). They sleep together, bathe each other, and play ( Gunner seems to always lose lol).
We are going more and more with Gunner. To rivers, the beach, and even walking trails. We love his energy, his personality, and his quirkiness. I think he thinks he’s human though. I heard my son say “this is the kind of dog I’ve always wanted”. The play catch, go for walks, and sometimes sleep together. It’s just amazing how smart he is.
We saw a Facebook post about Zoe (your littermate) yesterday–it was cute. Nonetheless, we are so happy you (Cindy and Kevin) Emailed us your update so that we could share it with the OwyheeStar Community on our blog as well as our Facebook Page. Thank you!
My heart melted when I read your son’s comments. Out of the mouth of babes as the saying goes–truth. Gunner is a dream come true. Thanks for letting us know–can not say that enough.
~ Her Birthday and Life
Maelee has brought much joy to our family. She loves to run, play, fetch and go on hiking adventures with the whole family. Not much time in the water, yet (still a little chilly on the coast).
Yes, she still tries to test us now and then (normal for puppy stage), mostly when it comes to leash walking. She prefers the running free with voice commands option like at the farm.
So many adventures already made and more to come, not much down time in this activity family and she loves it!
Thank you for all you do! ~ Keaty
We are excited to have this fabulous update. It is always good news to learn that one of the pups is bringing joy to someone. I am sure everyone else is delighted to see her adventures, too. Thank you–thank you, for remembering us, and for allowing us to share this news on the blog.
Astra is doing great she knows sit come stay. She goes for walks with us. She loves playing squeaky ball. S he is so sweet, and she loves snuggling with mommy.
Thank you for our baby ~ Tanya
We are thrilled to hear that Astra has settled into a good routine–doing all the essential things. Of course, snuggling might be at the top of the list.
Not so long ago–she was loaded in the crate on her way to join her forever family. It is funny how in a very short time it seems like they have been with us forever.

We appreciate you thinking to drop us a note about your Astra. Not all that long ago she was loaded up and traveling to join her forever family.
Her sweetness most certainly was a thing. The Great Granddaughters adored her–I suppose they hated to see her go. Well, it is a good lesson. We do this for other people. We cannot keep everyone–not even close. (haha)
~Finn’s Adjusting Quickly
All is going well. As you can see, he loves the retrieve. He also loves harassing Gunner but Gunner is letting him get closer.
Oh and we have a winner here–he is great in the crate. Sleeps thru the night….which is about 6 hrs. Gets up with me and goes back in crate for a little while gunner and I run and family is still asleep.
We are happy to learn how Finn is coming along with getting Gunner’s approval. (Haha) it is fabulous to hear how he has adjusted to the morning routine. Not so long ago he was with us–
~ Grandpa Will Reports–Part One
Since we got Ace on Feb. 8, 2019, the Spight household has been a whirlwind of activity! I’m happy to report my first stint as a “Grandpa” has gone well. Elle (Ace’s Mom) has been doing an outstanding job and continues to show amazing patience for her first very own puppy!
Since day 1, Ace has slept in Elle’s room and she’s the one who’s been getting up at night and taking him outside. Every now and then she asks for an assist from Grandpa or Nana when she’s had a tough night with Ace or if she has Volleyball tournaments the next day. So we swap rooms for the night and let her get some much needed rest.
Ace has done wonderful, we are following the Owyheestar protocol to the letter and have gotten him to the vet for his first round of shots (for us), and has his 2nd appointment soon for his 2nd set of shots. After that we plan to do the tieter test and am excited to explore the lower cost option you mentioned in a blog awhile back. We appreciated the BLOG article a week or two ago, concerning one of Ace’s litter mates who was getting more food and got soft stool. We observed the exact same thing, Ace was asking for MORE food, and when we increased it, his stool got MUCH softer, so we reduced it a little and it’s a little better. Still softer than we would like, but we continue to monitor.
We are so proud of Elle–it is a lot of work to raise the Weimaraner puppy. Of course, she has the best ever parents to help out when things become difficult. Nonetheless, Ace is turning out fantastic because of her expert care and attention to detail.
I know everyone loves seeing the photos–and they look forward to reading more about Ace and his adventures. Thank you, Grandpa, Will for the update.
~ We Miss Our Sweet Girl
This video (click here) was a couple years ago, after Cabela had had her teeth cleaned and a small growth removed from her eyelid. Ella (our middle kiddo) was all about taking care of her.
Thank you so much for chatting with me, I’ve found comfort in sharing our memories of Cabela. Like you, I feel like it was just yesterday that you were emailing me to tell me her miraculous birth story. She is so very missed.
I know we can relate to the loss or the fear of the loss of our beloved Weimaraner. No one is ever prepared to say goodbye. Cabela had the best possible family and life–for that, we are ever so thankful.
Her family knows she cannot be replaced, but Caleb (the gray male they got from us some years ago), needs a new sister. So, soon Clover (another Blue Female) will join this family. We are honored to know them, and touched by their loyalty.
~Never Miss an Opportunity
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day according to the experts. Well, it is all the better when you have a Breakfast Buddy, don’t you agree?
Heidi goes almost everywhere with us, and is in great health, with the exception of some residual trouble with her right rear knee after TPLO surgery. She still runs like a maniac after the squirrels, but sometimes pays for it later. We’ve kept her on the probiotics and NuVet vitamins since day one, and we seem to have avoided any trouble with sensitivity to different foods or other issues. Thanks again for our beautiful girl!
We Would Love to Hear News
We would love to see other photos of Heidi’s siblings, and know how they are doing. As you might guess, we were delighted to read about Penny, a littermate of Heidi.
I posted a comment on the article about Penny, Heidi’s sister. Maybe if you read this and happen to have a photo or story you will Email it to Shela for the blog. ~ Val
Thank you, Val for commenting on Heidi’s sister Penny. It is nice that two are living the life–one in Idaho, and the other in British Columbia on a ranch. Maybe someone will read the blog and send along a story, some photos, or some tidbit of information about another littermate. We cannot guess what will happen. Life is busy–sometimes people forget about us until they suffer the unthinkable–a loss. We are always sad with them, and at the same time so happy for all the years they had together.
~ Smart and Playful
Charlie and I just wanted to give you an update on our Kimber girl!
She’s doing amazing. She is so smart and playful. We are really starting to see her personality come through! She also loves the snow. Thanks again for such a great pup.
Hope all is well!-Alix & Charlie
We are happy to hear that Kimber is doing well. It looks like you got the snow, too. (Haha) Thanks for the great pictures and the positive news.
