Remy Blue

~ Part One

Breeder Comment

We begin with a little preface–so that we can better set the backdrop. Remy Blue is the lovely pup (or the only pup I could also say, born to Deja Vu 04/10/2018). To say she was tiny would be an understatement, but she had another feature which set her apart–a cowlick that ran down the front of her face. Anyhow, we are so delighted to have photos and information on this lovely pup to share with you.

Sahyo Reports

I faithfully read your daily OWNews and am delighted to read all about the many puppies and Weims from your “pack”. I’ll attempt to briefly bring you up to date on “The Wonderful World of Remy Blue”.

Remy Blue is a sweet, loving, and clever puppy. Her cowlick running down her snout is adorable. She immediately eased into our lives and placed her paw right onto our hearts. Her air travel to Carlsbad, CA (as my carryon) was uneventful and she slept through it until the descent. 

Crate training was fine including the initial few minutes of whiny protest, but soon was happily using it as her “home base”. One of her favorite places to rest is a foot pouf. Somehow Remy Blue was able to climb up and find a comfortable spot. Her puppy blue eyes are striking in this photo.

Additional Comment

Sahyo–you so kindly provided us with tidbits of information (and photos) that take her through the first year. We will post this in a few segments over the next ten days. We appreciate you flying into Boise and carrying her home to California, too. We are excited to share more information soon.

You might remember that yesterday’s blog featured Roger and CW–they flew to Salt Lake City. Yes, we get quite a few folks that fly with their Weimaraner puppy. Nonetheless, it is getting more difficult to make these kinds of flights happen. Smaller planes and different carry-on criteria are the reason it is not as easy as it once was. Nonetheless, here are two families who were able to pull it off.

Why fly, you might ask. Well–in many cases, it is the best option. A road trip is not always in the best interest of the puppy. Nor, is it in many cases the best way to start–get the routine going to ensure you are on the right track. The road trip means you have the concern of where to potty your puppy–it is essential to be extremely careful. Parvo has most likely infected every roadside potty area–read up on this dreadful situation, and you will agree. Being very careful is essential. Every year, more pups are lost to this disease than you can imagine. I hold my breath as I write we have never lost an OwyheeStar to Parvo. We want to keep this way.

Another perk with the carry-on experience might not be as evident. People who fly must get their puppy to settle in the travel bag. If you can teach a puppy to settle–you can teach them anything. It is also a great time to bond. There is something about the travel experience of this sort–it sets you up for an extraordinary transition.

We are home and he us checking out the yard. He was soooooo good on the planes everyone  adored him!No, I still haven’t settled on a name for him.

We Are Off To A Good Start

We had a great night. Of course I didn’t put him in the crate or in the bag 🙂 he slept on the bed with a few toys and is a great snuggler! He woke a few times to play with his toys and explored sleeping in all spots of the bed. Out first thing this morning he peed and pooped and ate a full meal. Then he took himself out and peed again! So we went back to bed for a short snooze and explored the garden a bit more. Then I took him for a short walk – which was actually a walk/carry – he was great! After the initial ‘WTF’ he took everything in stride, encountering his first bicycle and his first stroller. Now he has voluntarily gone into his crate – which we are calling ‘the lair’  – with his stuffed toys and is snoozing.
As you can see on FB he already has a mass of admirers! Several people are dropping by today, and tomorrow I’ll take him to the office – my coworkers are dying to see him!
I’ll keep you posted on everything~Jill

Maybe it would suffice to say he is headed toward rockstar status.
