Jedi

Two Years

     ~Loving Dedication

IMG02We got Jedi (Jed) from you almost two years ago now! I hope you see the pictures I post on Instagram and Facebook sometimes. He has really grown into a great dog for us. He is very protective, adventurous, and of course, is dedicated to his people. He goes to daycare about once a week so he gets a lot of socialization with other dogs and loves going out in the woods with dad on the weekends.

Justin and I got married last October and Jedi was able to be at the wedding for a bit. He is very much an essential part of our lives as you can see.

Possible Referral

My parents are thinking about getting a Weimaraner puppy. I thought I would check to see if you still have puppies available this year? I will let my parents know to put in an application if they are serious. Thanks again.  ~Katie

We send our congratulations on the nuptials. We love seeing Jedi (Jed) involved even if it was only a moment. There have been a few other couples over the years which involved their OwyheeStar Weimaraner/Weimaraners in the Wedding ceremony. We are always so amazed and blessed to know they are much-loved as well as an integral part of the family.

Availability–I should put this out there, now. Our Wait List is much shorter than is typical. Of course, we get inquiries all the time. The list can snowball and take on a life of its own. That being said–we expect Fall and Early Winter pups. We have more people on the list (at present) wanting the Silver Gray or Gray traditional coat Weimaraner. Also, of the ten listed, seven want a female. Therefore, those wanting a Blue or a Male are apt to get a puppy sometime between now and the end of the year if things go as planned.

A typical wait is about six months for the traditional smooth coat–a bit longer for the Longhairs. Occasionally, we will have a puppy not promised before they are born. Maybe no one on the list wants a pup that matches their sex, coat color, or their timeline. It happens. Not often, but every once in a while. It is not a significant concern. As I mentioned, we get inquiries all the time. Many of these are of the highest caliber, and a goodly percentage are via either repeat or direct referral.

We sincerely thank you for your recommendation as well as your loving care of Jedi. Having this update is lovely. Instagram is new to us. We recently started posting a few photos here and there of the pups on there. We keep an eye on Facebook; however, it is challenging to catch everyone’s post. Thanks again for this Email update. It is more helpful to me than you can imagine.

Our Berkley

     ~And More

Hello!
I just wanted to send this video of Berkley I shot the other day. She loves the woods.

Hope you are well. Thanks for all you do for so many! Berkley is never far from us–like now, she is snuggled up next to me. Here is a photo of her with our daughter, Nora. They make a cute pair, right?

If ever the exhaustion overtakes me, it is folks like you that remind me all the effort is worth it. Thank you, for thinking of us. We truly appreciate it.

ReHomed–Part Two

A New Chapter Begins

     ~With The New Family

Boyd's Rocky

Rocky Kisses

In the first episode of ‘ReHomed,’ we shared about finding Rocky and Mickey a Rock-solid placement. Yes, we got a lot of interest. Nonetheless, not everyone was going to be in the best interest of the two–but we do so appreciate everyone who had the heart to want to help.

As the transition began, Kirsten was kind enough to keep us in the loop. We realize she puts in long hours, and there was the Weim-thing, but she thought about updating us frequently. We had discussed that neither Rocky nor Mickey were supposedly swimmers. Of course, both Kirsten, as well as Cliff and I hoped she could get the both of them at least in the water, if not swimming.

This Water Thing Happened


Not long after they arrived home, Rocky made himself at home in the wading pool.

 

 

Tiga and Lotte

Their Companionship

     ~ and So Much More

40768612_10216859279859502_4020557931333287936_oThe neighbors, hogs, deer and especially the neighborhood foxes will be thankful the dogs are headed back to Seattle (me not so much). Thanking two dogs for their friendship over the last few months might sound odd to some, but until you learn the love of not only one, but two Weimaraners you just can’t comprehend their healing nature despite the high energy approach. Have fun with the kids Tiga and Lotte and GO HAWKS!

Breeder Comment

Dear Mike, we thank you for your service and the sacrifices made. We are glad that Tiga and Lotte are much loved. We understand what you mean about the healing nature of such a relationship–so happy that you can benefit from all they have to offer.

For those reading this update–Tiga and Lotte have been residing in Germany with Mike, but they will be returning to the Pacific NW again soon. He will sorely miss them, but the demands of life require them to go home to Mama and the kids.

Remy

Loves the Water

image-28-08-18-10-23-1We spent the week in Coeur D’Alene and Remy joined us of course. image-28-08-18-10-23She loved swimming and being on the boat with us. She’s such a great pup, we can’t imagine our family without her 😀image-28-08-18-10-26

 

Hope you guys are well!
Best,
Haley

Thank you, for remembering us and sharing this with our audience. We do so appreciate it. It is great to hear that Remy is much loved. Also, that she loves all things water related–she swims. Mostly we love seeing how happy you folks are to have her as a part of the family. We love it when we see the Weimaraner doing whatever with the family–not left behind. We all know that they are in their element when they are with their beloved humans.

Something Fishy

About Camping

 

Mommy and daddy took me to a new place with lots of fun stuff to do and new smells. We went to this place they kept calling the beach it was so much fun. We played in the water and I ran so fast. Daddy even brought my ball so I could chase it. I was so tired when we get back I had to take a few power naps.

Later mommy and daddy took me on a walk to this place with big rocks by the water. It was so cool there, mommy had a long stick with a string at the end and she kept shaking it above the water until finally she got super excited and pulled out what they called a fish. It was so interesting I kept wanting to put it in my mouth but they wouldn’t let me. We had so much fun I can’t wait to go again.

I read a comment you made about liking pictures that aren’t already posted on FB (TOTALLY understandable!), well you’re in luck 😉 we went on an amazing camping trip and of course I took tons of dog pics, but since all of my kids and grandkids went I felt the need to limit posting dog pics so my human kids knew I loved them too 😂😂the pictures got a little mixed up, one of the girls in the truck is on the way to camp. The one of all the girls lined up is a “girls only” paddle trip

I wanted to give you an update on the fur-girls, we took them camping at Waldo lake last weekend … what an amazing time we had!! As you can see from the pictures we spent most of our time in (or on) the water! Tikka is still getting used to paddle boarding, at one point we lashed our boards together & sat to paddle, she liked that because she had her three “people” in one spot 😂😂

~About the OwyheeStar Facebook Group

Yes, Nancy, it is fabulous having the OwyheeStar Facebook Group–it allows people to connect with other OwyheeStar clients. It is a great place to post OwyheeStar Weimar photos. I said OwyheeStar twice–I should mention this group is only for our clients. The regular OwyheeStar Page still works, and it is open to the public for comment. This group is all about our little community. To become a member you must be an OwyheeStar Client–just to clarify for anyone wondering.

Once someone posts a story and photos, it seems rather silly of me to grab that information and to repost it on our blog. I can do that. I have done it. I try to avoid doing it–I like to keep the blog newsy, but also fresh and informational. (Haha) I rely on the kindness of our OwyheeStar clients to update me with stories, photos, and achievements. For the most part, people are so very gracious and follow through–but, not always. Regardless, we love the updates. I think you will agree there have been some great group posts. We do so appreciate them. This update, however, is so helpful. Thank you, again for thinking of us. Your help is much appreciated.

~Love Seeing Tikka and Luna

We are thrilled to see Tikka getting used to the paddle boarding. The water retrieves by both girls (Luna and Tikka) is extraordinary. It looks like everyone had a great time.

Jorga

Stateside

   ~The Pacific NW

Jorga began her life at OwyheeStar–like so many of your Weims. She then, stayed with Arleen (who lives with Arliss) until she could join her family in Belgium. For the last several years she has reported in at various intervals.

Here is the sweet Jorga –welcome back! We are happy you made the trip without a hitch. Below she was preparing for the journey–watching as her home was packed into boxes. For all you who say never flying with a Weimaraner ever–what options are there? You cannot leave the family member behind.
