~ 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.
At 6.5 Months
Just wanted to send you a quick update on Milly (Bernie and Boone 18 litter). She is 6.5 months old now, wow where did time go? She is such a joy and we fall more in love with her every day. She is in level 4 (out of 4) in obedience training on her way to getting her canine good citizenship certificate. She does so well in class and we are working hard to enforce all her commands into everyday life. She is still growing like a weed and I believe is now around 45lbs. We love this spunky, smart, cuddly girl so much! Here are some recent photos!
(Milly and her Weim “cousin” Sky are best of friends)
(She is learning to enjoy playing in the rain, she’s a Seattle girl after all! This has taken much coercion but she’s getting used to it)
(Sometimes she thinks she is a cat! Notice her blanket which is spread out that she chose to ignore)
(She has daddy wrapped around her finger)Thanks again for a wonderful pup!Deanna
Sucia and Patos
One challenging part was that Patos was so into her big sister, that it didn’t seem like I had the same connection with her that I did with Sucia as a puppy. Patos would rarely make eye contact with us but instead would go dashing off to find Sucia. We just hung in there and hoped that eventually, the loving, owner-connected weim might appear. Magically, it did!
Just in the past few months, around the time she turned one, we have noticed that Patos is spending chunks of the day leaving Sucia alone, and will purposely seek us out for attention and cuddling and makes communicating eye contact all the time. Every evening is a cuddling session with one of us on the dog-approved couch. Not sure what brought about the change, but it is wonderful. Now our home has two loving, silly, fun, intelligent Weimaraners!
We are so happy to have the lengthy report about the two Stackhouse-sired sisters. Both Cindee and Livee have retired. We kept Dahlia and Bee out of Livee and Stackhouse. So far, we have never had a litter from either of these girls. It was not for lack of trying. Deja Vu (Ginger X Blue) has produced four puppies. Ginger is a littermate to Cindee.
The co-dependent behavior you experienced it not all that strange. You did the right thing. Just hang in there, and eventually, the newest addition will come around and bond. It wasn’t so much about anything other than the almost twin-like connection. You are fantastic Weim parents.

~ Skye –need we say more?
Remember, how I told you we waited for 11 years. Our daughter, Jazlyn CRIED so hard.We are all in love. We are over the moon! Our daughter still gets teary-eyed holding her. She is so in love and happy.

~and their Weims–Part One
Hello OwyheeStar family!!We’ve been having an eventful spring…well not so much for Max. He’s just chills out.
Lucy got spayed. She had some stitches come loose because she can’t not run, but all is well now.
She still loves to snuggle. Especially in Dad’s chair!
We added to our furry and feathered friends with some baby chickens. Lucy is sooooo curious, but I think it’s because she sees them as a snack. She’s become a bit of a hunter (see below)
So far, she jumps up and grabs birds out of the air, comes home with marmots, finds rabbits on hikes and most recently, a porcupine!!! 😞 (see below) that little lesson cost $300 at the pet emergency! Silly Lucy!
~Jeff Melissa Max Lucy and Toby
(watch for part two)
“Ouch” porcupines are not fair game Miss Lucy. It is just horrid to see you suffer this indignity. Please be careful in the future. (OMG)
Dear Friends — we cannot thank you enough. The years we have shared, the stories, and your continued loyalty we do not take lightly. What else can we say?

Here is a quilt my wife just finished showing all the bird dogs I have owned.
Mesquite is the star in the middle of the quilt. She is the only one who isn’t a Vizsla.
She is doing well, she is quite a card, has a super personality. She is very well mannered and likes her daily morning walks. She gets to hunt that way. She knows all the rabbits and quail and they know her. She points them but doesn’t chase after they flush or run.
I think she is more than happy here. I try and stick to the routine.
Thank you, for giving Mesquite the fabulous Golden Year Placement. I am glad she fills your heart and your home with joy. We truly appreciate your updates, too! The quilt is quite the treasure. Thank you, for sharing this with us.
