When in the Southwest

It is Lizards

31189578_818517568340752_8553783899514208256_oDid you know the Weimaraner is a Watch Dog? Of course, you did. All that nose art on your window didn’t come from the goldfish. (Haha)

In the Northwest, it is the squirrels who taunt the Weim window watchers. Or maybe it is a feral cat that walks the fence gingerly out of reach. Bunnies and other scurriers are also fair game–sometimes the watching crew gets after the watched. The chase is on if caught it might not end well.

In the southwest, the lizards taunt the Weimaraner. It doesn’t take much to get their attention–sparrows, blackbirds, robins, butterflies, and sometimes bugs. Some Weims are more attuned to their duty of watching the premises than others. Nothing gets by these two.

For A Lovely Earth Day

Earth and the Weimaraner. There is a picture. They love dirt, digging, and rolling in dirty substance–to our chagrin. Then there is this…

 

Have You Seen This?

Once Upon A Time

     ~ Now Fascinated with Balloons

 

As promised. Lily playing balloon volleyball. When we were decorating for parties, she wanted to bad to be included and just was fascinated w the balloons. We quickly learned she would try to not pop the balloons if she could play with us. She loves to be included in everything we do, and we do our best to include her. But now. I can’t get a balloon out of the party supplies without her going nuts. So when it is raining and muddy, this is an extra way to tire her out (and we all are laughing and happy)

Well, what to say about this girl. I think she is blessed to have a family who celebrates her. They find ways to include her in their activities. Balloon game is a new thought for us. Honestly, we have seen the opposite–fear it was an alien floating in the sky. This balloon game is delightful.

Flieger's Henry_9965Henry is also an eternal optimist. He sits patiently, not making a noise unless you count drool hitting the floor, waiting for me to drop something. I usually let him lick my plate when I finish!!

We have been talking about training and living with the Weimar. I think it serves us well to remember they have stealth on their side. They are cunning and crafty as well.

The only tough thing about a Weim is you don’t own the couch anymore….they do!!!

Breeder Comment

You might remember this little girl earlier this year during our resolution-making season. Click here to see her then, and to read more about her and the sofa. You might also like to know that she is a sister to Luke and Bo–featured yesterday. We hear that Schatzi and the two blue boys are planning a play date sometime in the future.

The couch is shared in most every household despite efforts to prevent this from happening. Some do, but most don’t even attempt it. You might remember that Weimar rule list that used to be prevalent. It would start off where the Weimar is not going to come into the house. (Oops–then we are not placing a pup with you.) Then, it would quickly follow up, with–alright the Weimar is allowed in the house, but only by the back door. And this would go on and on, and pretty soon the Weim owned the house and was running things. (Ha!) We tend to share almost everything with our Weimaraners. Don’t you agree?

So, the sofa is in use. Well, if the human arrives first, they are welcome to be used as a pillow. Otherwise, you might have to try to squeeze in somewhere or opt for the recliner.

The Celebrated

Reznor

IMG_0597
Hello Shela & Cliff, sorry it’s been so long since the last update. Our sweet Reznor is a little over 2 years now & is a healthy happy big goofy boy. We are so happy you brought him into our lives. He has been through 2 road trips down to California to visit with his extended family & does great on the road. His favorite thing to do is go to Marymoor Park which is a Disneyland for Dogs. He loves to be there to swim, play catch, run around ask humans for treats & pretty much ignore all the other dogs;)

Our Weimar Calendar

We decided to make a Reznor calendar this year as we got tired of not enough Weimaraners on other dog calendars & certainly not enough Blue Weims!

So now we get to enjoy his face every day/week/month of the year😍
We hope you guys are doing well & I’ll try not to wait so long until the next update. Thanks, Anthony, Michelle & Rez

We are delighted to learn Reznor is doing well. The calendar is awesome. I always dream of making an OwyheeStar Calendar. Maybe one day. Getting enough current (and excellent photos) of the Weims we want to feature. We don’t always have the opportunity to carve out time. We tend to focus on what is at hand. The necessity of the moment dictates what we do. Ah, too often the fun project eludes our grasp. (ha!) It is so lovely to see this project. Thank you, again, for sharing your love and devotion–and the calendar. We are positive others will enjoy it and follow your example.

What’s a girl to do when sunshine is streaming right into the guest room window…right onto the guest bed…and I’m not permitted to have all 4 legs on the furniture in this house…and my masters are not paying attention….BUSTED Maizie!

Socks

Repurposed socks

      ~ Fun with Charlie Mae

Spight's Longhair1355_n

The Game–the way things work!

This continues to be her favorite game. Grab a sock from wherever she can get it – dirty clothes/clean clothes/from a drawer, it matters not!!! Once she successfully finds one, then she comes and finds us to make sure we see she’s got one.

It’s then time for the chase. This is where we run around the house after her, eventually, she jumps on our bed and with some negotiating she will drop it… It’s SO cute (most of the time), if you don’t co-operate with her plan, she’s been known to take out her frustration on the found sock… We just love this big personality pup!

We are in the middle of the Longhair discussion on the blog. It seems right to showcase one today. What better thing to have this from Will and Jill?

Yesterday, Charlie Mae was on the blog (her silhouette), but there is a lot more to the Longhair than that feathering. It has been some time since I talked about the Longhair Weimaraner. There are a very few OwyheeStar clients that don’t care for the look of the Longhair; however, by and large, most really love the idea–even if they don’t embrace getting one. Not everyone is going to like the same thing. That being said–much of what we have achieved is due to the Longhair DNA pool. Those who voice the loudest objections are often the recipient of the benefits.

Your family are adamant Weimaraner lovers–you have had nearly every look available except the Blue Longhair. We know Ellie, your daughter, hopes to one day get a second Longhair. Cliff and I still remember when you contacted us, and the only thing we had available was Charlie Mae. You met us to see what they were like and soon we heard that you wanted to add her to your family. It makes us happy to know you enjoy this lovely girl. Of course, you still have Murphy–the traditional Blue Weimaraner. He is much-loved as well. Thank you, for being a faithful and devoted OwyheeStar Weim-loving family. Here ( https://owyheestarweimaranersnews.com/2016/03/06/murphy/ ) is the last time Murphy, your Blue Boy appeared on the blog.

Jaeger

Breeder Comment

1-Bettee X Boone Week Five-16 1Just when you think you have seen it all, along comes something well, not new per say, but unexpected.

Jaeger (pictured at five-weeks here to the left) doesn’t have young photos of him sticking out his tongue. We all know; however, I have shown you some of my favorite such pictures with the same gesture. Who doesn’t laugh?

Not long ago, he was using the Cat Tree–as well as doing some field training. You have to admit he is entertaining. Oh, and pretty darned cute. However, did you get such a snapshot of Jaeger?

Taking It Too Far?!?
