(June 7, 2020) Ruger turns 4 today! He has added so much love and joy to our family. I can’t imagine our lives without this quirky, hilarious guy! It’s hard to capture action photos because he is either laying down or running!
We spend our days doing lots of walks through the rolling hills across from our house, where he chases bunnies, digs out whistle pigs, and flushes pheasants. I run into quite a few families in this area with Weims from you and Cliff, and you can always tell. I could see the resemblance from Blue on a few occasions with other pups from different litters. What beautiful dogs!! Anyway, thought I’d share a few photos and thank you again for our precious Ruger!
We could not be happier to learn that Ruger is doing well–and that he is loved. Quirky can be fun–and it sure adds spice to daily life.
~Lucas – Age 18
In a few months I’m going to go off to college and I don’t think anything can prepare me for how much I’m going to miss Sherlock. When people say dogs are man’s best friend, they’re right. I’ve spent more time with him over these last four years than anybody else besides my family. How am I going to fall asleep without him curling up in my bed at night? Who am I going to play tug with? Who am I going to throw the Chuck-it to? Nothing feels as freeing as dropping everything and sprinting down the trail or the beach with Sherlock. A boy and his dog running as fast as they can, feeling the wind rush past, overjoyed to be with each other. He loves nothing more than to run, play, and be really weird. He always accepts me, no matter what. I never have to filter myself or tone myself down when I’m with him. In fact, I don’t even think about it because his love is unconditional. I didn’t understand what this word meant until I had a weimaraner, and now I can never forget.
One of the purest things I’ve ever seen is the excitement that comes out of Sherlock when we get ready to go on a hike. As soon as I put my socks on, he perks up. When the boots are getting laced up, he is now standing next to me. He then leads the way downstairs, nudges his leash hanging from the coat rack, and sits down. He begins to whine when I start filling up the water bottles. But he’s not yet sure if he’s coming or not. The best part is when I grab his leash. His tail becomes a blur, his ears tuck back, he spins in circles, and he yelps with excitement. It is the happiest thing in the world for him. It fills my heart every time I get to witness this. Sherlock constantly reminds me how much joy there is to be found in life. He inspires me to be myself and do what feels right. I’m in awe of him every day.
Lucas–thank you for taking the time to share your experience. You are right about missing Sherlock–do they not worm their way into your heart? Oh yeah! During a time such as this–our fur family members keep us covered with a special love and acceptance that is not easily put into a few words. I am positive that your absence will affect Sherlock as much as you–but he will have other family members there to help him adjust. It will not be quite as easy for you, but with the leaving, a new chapter in your life begins. Thanks again for the share–it is most appreciated.
~With their Newest Family Member
The journey begins–and these two are already forging an excellent bond. That look–it is almost as if he is saying, “and what did you expect?”
This Blue Boy will not replace ‘Salty’ the much-loved Gray Ghost Weimaraner that made his home in their family until his recent departure. But we are positive that Salty is looking down with approving eyes, and influence to add to this situation.
We appreciate this family–like so many, they are repeat OwyheeStar folks. Their loyalty and the inclusive way with their fur family warm our heart and soul.
~ This One Features Salty
I’ve been racking my brain–and wondering if I could figure out who Salty’s parents were. I am fairly certain the litter sire was Dusty, but I cannot be sure. Mr. Salty is getting some age on him–it was a very long time ago when his parents came to our home to pick him up. It is funny how some moments stand out. Possibly, the name they chose made me always remember this Weimaraner–there have been a lot since he left OwyheeStar. But, it may well be the annual Christmas Card.
A couple of days ago, we got our first Christmas card. It is a doozy. (Haha) But every Christmas, we receive a card from Salty’s parents, and he is always front and center. This year he is solo. I wanted to share the lovely card with you readers–and say that I hope Salty is doing well.
~ Our Bailey Crossed Over the Rainbow Bridge
Today we had to let our sweet, amazing Bailey boy go. Stormy and Dusty we his parents– he was the only Silver Puppy in their litter.
We had 13 wonderful years with him for which we will be eternally grateful. While our hearts are broken, we will always remember the adventures, cuddles and all the love we shared.
Our lives wouldn’t have been the same without him.
Thank you so much for such a special gift, Mandee and Lee
Dear Mandee–thank you, for remembering us at time you are grieving over this loss. As I thought about the details, I remember so well you picking him up and a few email conversations we had. Of course, the only silver-gray pup in the litter defined him, too. Thanks for giving him such an outstanding life. We appreciate you!
~Beautiful Thief, she is–
When ever I take a shower, I have to leave the door cracked, otherwise, she will scratch and whine, waking up the rest of the house (she gets quite loud, haha).
And EVERY single time I get out of the shower, I have a piece of clothing “gone”….yep my beautiful Weim is a “thief”. I usually find it under her, or in her mouth. She hasn’t damaged anything (yet), but if I’m missing something, all I have to do is find her (which isn’t hard) and I’ll find my clothes. Gotta love little thieves (lol).
Looking forward to our next thief!
Robin and Mark
Well, we have been friends for a long time–like so many people in our life, it was the Weimaraner that introduced us. This addiction to this crazy breed cannot be explained to everyone. It is most certainly not for everyone, either. (That being said)–we look forward to placing another with you as soon as possible. Thank you–for your loyalty, friendship, and the love of the Weimaraner.
~AKA My Snuggle Bug
I just wanted to give you an up date on Astra. My snuggle bug has almost grow into her feet, learned how to swim and she loves it and sit stay shake go to bed roll over and play dead and heel she loves walks with mommy and daddy she loves her daycare and playing with pups.we just love her so much
We are delighted to learn that things are going well with Astra. She swims, does tricks, and snuggles. What a girl. Thanks for remember us!
~First We Had So much fun
We took Zeus to the coast today for his first day trip. He steered clear of the water but loved the sand and wide open spaces to run. He loved it! Then slept the entire way home!
We are so happy to learn that Zeus is doing well–and how we would have loved to be there for the trip to the Oregon Coast.
~ At Two-Years
Hope you and your readers enjoy these fun shots and videos of Berkley, our big two year old. She’s so much fun.
This when we went camping at Lake Kachess. Stephan would take her on the paddle board and say, “where’s Amanda” and she would jump ship and swim to me…2 times a day, in addition to a lot of fetch!
Enjoy! — Amanda
What a fabulous swimming Weimaraner. We love seeing the fur family member in the middle of family events. Thank you!
~ Part Three
Remy Blue loves her various dog beds throughout the home. From her “baby puppy” bed to her grown-up bed, she’s a snuggle bunny. She’s also a big help for my daughter with homework.
Puppy bed is a bit too small, but Remy Blue thinks she can still fit.
As a puppy, Remy Blue loved to sit behind me on my office chair. Often times, she would fall asleep in the funniest positions.
As she grew older and larger, Remy Blue opted for being cradled in my lap with her full little belly facing outward.
Here is one of our first attempts at taking a selfie. Not sure if her expression is one of concern. It was never published.
On April 10th, 2019, Remy Blue celebrated her 1st birthday. We took a photo with her in relation to a “deck of cards”. If you remember, she was very petite at birth and a survivor. I hope you still have her birth photos; unfortunately, I “lost” all the photos and videos you sent because my Outlook got corrupted. She is grown to be around 60-65 lbs. In short time, her birthday “rabbit” was promptly chewed at the ears.
Well, we looked for the photo showing the card next to you Remy Blue–could not find it. We did find this photo of you resting in Christina’s hand–you were three days old and so tiny.
We hoped you would live–you were so precious. Look at you a year later–Happy Birthday Remy Blue.
Watch for the next (and final segment) in the update Sahyo has been so kind to share. We truly appreciate it.
