~on our heels at all times
Lulu & Lyla are are on our heels at all times ( just like our last two Weimaraners)! If we shower we had better make sure the rugs are down, if not we better lay down our clothes so they can keep an eye on us while we shower! This surely must be a sign that we are good dog parents as they cannot get enough of us! Wish our twin almost 14 year old girls felt the same!
Thank you for these faithful, loving and furry kids!

For those who like their personal space or privacy, we say keep on traveling toward a different breed. The Velcro Weimar is all about being in your space–touching you, having your things. Oh yeah! You Weimlovers know what we are talking about–don’t even think about the Weimaraner.
~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.
Sage is still doing fine. She isn’t always impressed with things such as me not being able to find her regular dish–and her having to eat out of a Cool whip container. This happened because I couldn’t find the dog dishes so I grabbed that for her to give her breakfast. At first she just looked at it like she wasn’t sure what to do with it but, being a Weim, she figured out there was food in it so she went ahead and ate out of it. It was funny to watch her.
In the photo at the top here she is laying on a blanket. She was being goofy and kept barking at Copper like she was daring him to try to take it away from her. She does that with her bone sometimes in her crate too. It was pretty funny.
When we had the VBS Emma and Naomi and her mom stayed at our place in their camper and Naomi found a hanky in my room and she went and covered Sage with it. It was so cute–Sage is just so extra special with little kids that’s what was really funny
Had to Happen
The dogs all three got baths because the septic backed up and the good news is that it didn’t back up into the house. Anyhow John Paul had hit one of the vent pipes with the high Grass mower and they did a temporary fix by simply putting an inverted bucket on top. (It would have been okay, but you know.) Well I noticed the dogs drinking water from around the bucket and with closer observation realized there was toilet paper in the water so the guys made quick work to get the septic fixed. I had to give three dogs baths with the boys help. They sure look funny dripping wet.
Emma (my goddaughter) who I have over quite often sits here with her buddies Roxy and Copper. Roxy and Copper like to watch out the window for the chipmunks and wild rabbits and then of course they bark and go completely insane. Of course, then they want to go outside. I know it’s kind of goofy but anyway we’ve had to really watch cuz Copper all of a sudden decided he wanted to get a good sniff. He started sneaking out the back door–something he’s never done before.
We are glad that Sage and Roxy (and your non-Weimar Black Cur–Copper) are all doing well. You have a very busy and exciting life. Thanks for all you do. We are especially thankful that you adopted Sage and Roxy–not a young puppy. You have given them the best possible situation. Thanks, again.

~Just wanted to update you on our not so little anymore Ashe!
We just back from the vet earlier this week and weigh in was just at 30lbs!
She is certainly growing into her own and has no lack of personality.
She’s not the most graceful pup, she tends to barrel through just about anything and falls down constantly but she has no fear and we love that about her!
She loves her brother Chase (Australian Sheppard) so much, and he is finally warming up to her and playing with her.
Hope all is well over at OwyheeStar!
We are loving Ashe more and more every day, even when she won’t leave one of us alone ☺️.
Much Love,Jett and Chauntel
People like you make what we do a joy! We truly appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to share these photos and some insight into your life with Ashe.
~Have You Heard of a Soft-Mouth?
(8/15/2019) I have to tell you guys about Tikka today! We’re camping on a lake and we paddled out to an island, well Tikka obviously “found something ” she was super excited and kind of lounged then it looked like she tossed something but kept after what ever it was. I noticed a mama bird that was upset so I called her off. As we were leaving she ran back that way and started swimming away from us and wouldn’t come when called. When she finally came back it was obvious that she had something in her mouth (dang it a dead baby bird!) . She was swimming differently, slow and careful. She swam directly to me and gave me a live baby bird that I returned to it’s nest
😊Here are some photos from our recent adventure.
Supposedly, the Weimaraner is not naturally soft-mouthed. Small game and game birds frequently don’t fair well–but having said that, Cliff had had many a retrieved bird fly out of an OwyheeStar Weimaraner’s mouth. A soft-mouthed dog is a good thing.
Thank you, for sharing your story–and all these great photos. We know everyone loves seeing Tikka and Luna.
~AT Three Years Plus
I can’t Express what a joy Ruger has been to our family. I meant to send you a pic and message on his birthday on June 7th when he turned 3! I can’t believe he is 3 already!
In March, my son Logan and I took a road trip with Ru as we call him for short…to Cannon Beach! What an awesome place, especially for dogs! We stopped in Hood River for a night and spent 4 more nights in Cannon Beach. We all had so much fun! Ruger Loves the beach. We will make this an annual trip for sure!
I was a little nervous about the 8 plus hour car ride from Middleton ID. But with stops along the way he did great!! He is such a great addition to our family! Thanks Shela and Cliff for such a great pup! We all love him so much! More updates to come!
Beth, Jeff, Logan and Maisy
All too often, I wish I were an OwyheeStar Weimaraner–all these trips to the beach and whatnot. (OMG) We are happy to read that Ruger is much-loved and included in all the fun. Thank you–we appreciate you thinking of us. Happy three years–here’s to hoping for many more.
~Opus a saurus — one who mouths everything
Like most Weims, he is mouthy–I’ve really struggled with this habit of his. He is the reason I engaged the services of a trainer.
Not Gonna Happen
This picture is from one of the visits and from the dog trainer. He just laid there. He’s the reason I needed the trainer–remember. He’s not wanting to work on stuff. I’ve really struggled with this habit with him.
It’s quite alarming when he grabs you by the arm if you’re not comfortable with 85 lbs of lovin’. Then he nibbles your butt. Always predictable. Never harmful. We’re making strides. This picture is from one of the visits from the dog trainer. He just laid there. He’s the reason I needed the trainer. He’s very mouthy, like most Weims. I’ve really struggled with this habit with him.
Ok that’s it for now. I just love them all. Thank you. Can’t imagine belong without these guys.
Can I just say you are the best–thank you, Melinda, for your response to my request. BTW–I appreciate everyone who has already send something for our blog–and those who still plan to do so.
Since today (7/13) is Jedi’s birthday I thought I’d share this with you. We had a baby in May, Owen. Owen and Jedi are taking to each other very well! Jedi follows me all over the house when I’m holding Owen. 🙂
There have been so many changes since you brought home Jedi. It seems like yesterday he was in your wedding photos. What a grand job you have done with him.
~Life is Excellent
Best business partner ever! Look how tired she is from her morning run and exploration. She also rounded up the cat who escaped this morning. ❤️
She has the best life! She is loving her hikes!
We realize China is one of Boise’s busiest women–her business, her family, and the community require a lot of her. We appreciate her thinking of us–sharing this update. It is great to know this little Boise Longhair is doing well.
~The Little Blue Guy
We just got the results back from the 16 week Titer test. Stone tested positive for both antibodies, which is great! However, the vet technician warned me that Stone could still be at risk and that they suggest the 16 week vaccination. I am holding strong.
Stone is very much at home here, loves his big brother, Blue, tolerates his crate, devours his food and then heads for Blue’s bowl (and shock of shock, Blue lets him eat from his bowl!), and continues to be the world’s best snuggler. Everyone stops me on our daily walks to coo over how sweet he is. Stone is really smart too – and we start Obedience Classes in May.
But who leaves out dog treats when a Weim is waiting for the vet???
Thank you for our little angel. We love him so.
As I always say–thank you, Victoria, for the update on Stone. You have been so excellent as sending things that I can share on the Blog. It means a lot to us.
We love to hear that Stone has settled into his routine and that he is doing well in every way. These photos are precious. I know everyone is going to appreciate seeing them.
