Friends

Jeanne Writes!

   ~ at the beach with the Weims

Adria and I were thinking of you today while we walked on the beach. I think it’s wonderful how friendships can develop with the help of our dogs! What a coincidence that Adria and I met in a field with Zeus and Gatsby and found out that they both had come from you! Now we walk together quite often.
 
Gatsby & ZeusToday we took them to a beach close to Adria’s house. It was the first time there for Zeus. They had so much fun running on the sand and through the shallow water. Zeus has also developed a taste for starfish, unfortunately.
 
We thought you may enjoy a picture of them romping together and having fun. I’m certain it makes you happy to see them living a good life after they leave you. They are both such good and lovable boys!
 
Thank you for such a wonderful dog and for the friendship that became of it because of the fantastic work that you do! 🙂
 
I hope that you are doing well and think of you often! 
 
Love,
 
Jeanne & Zeus

Thank you, ladies, for thinking of us. It is fun to see them having such a great romp on the beach. It is heartwarming to know that they are much-loved, too! We appreciate this update. It could not have come at a better time.

The Boys

Never Boring

~Ever Entertaining

 

IMG_1733Sorry Pops, we need both rafts cause Coopers getting bigger, you can sit on the steps….

Never a dull moment. The addition of Coop has sparked new interest in Luke and our lives. We are gearing up for many new adventures as we navigate selling our home, moving to an apartment a few blocks away and then transitioning to our place in the desert eventually to retire. Our boys have proven time and time again just how versatile they can be and remind us that we should be too and to not take things so seriously.

The boys focus on the fetch regardless of sirens, fireworks wind and waves…

IMG_2100We had the gray ghost, the blue, then there were long hairs ,,, what that a polka dot Weim?

IMG_2207These guys are getting comfortable sharing whatever they are dealt,,,

IMG_2197They will take whatever they are given,,,, guess I sleep at the foot of the bed

As always Shela I hope you and Cliff are doing well. We so appreciate the care and kindness you 2 put into everything you do for these adorable creatures and those whom you guide through the rearing process.

 

Love and Light ~ Cal

We so appreciate the update with all the photos, etc. Thank you, for the exceptionally kind words and endorsement. Of course, we have known each other for a very long time–all due to our Weimaraner connection. Who knew this would become a thing? And, indeed it is as well as being entirely life-changing. We would have never guessed. We are glad the whole experience blesses you.

Not Peas in a Pod

Our Yahoo Dogs

20180701_135119.jpg
We love animals–that includes dogs. Here is a little bit about our two yahoo dogs.

Bodhi and Murray are as different as night and day.

Bodhi is our gentle, quiet therapy dog.  I got him as a puppy for my husband who was having health issues at the time.  He spent every day keeping my husband company while he recuperated.  When Bodhi is in the house we sometimes forget he is there, he goes to a quiet corner and lays down and you never hear from him unless he needs to go out or you open the refrigerator.  In fact, we have gone looking for him outside only to come back in and find him still sleeping in his corner.
Murray, on the other hand, is a ball of fire and is always on the go.  Murray loves to hunt, dig gophers get muddy, filthy dirty, jump in the water and roll in the pasture.  He is always on guard for anything out of the norm around our place.  He is Mr. personality and is so stinking smart.  It is so funny to watch them together, they will be standing in the barnyard, turn to look at each other and it is as if they read each other’s mind saying “Gophers!!!!!” then they race off to dig up gophers.
They both enjoy working with us doing our daily chores, irrigating the pastures, feeding and watering the chickens, digging ditches, building a fence, cutting the lawn or standing guard in the pasture.    They are excellent guard dogs and wary of strangers coming onto our property.  I have no doubts that if someone tried to harm us these guys would make sure we were safe.
I have had Weimaraners for over 30 years and they all have different personalities and quirks.  Weimaraners are my choice of breed and I love them all.  Bodhi and Murray are my first long hairs, for me, they are quite different from the short hair weims I have had in the past, but they are still weims.  They love to be with their people and are hurt when they can’t be with you every second.

But What?

Breeder Comment

We are delighted that Willow is entertaining and that she has brought healing to your heart and home after Roxy’s departure. Thank you, Rene, for all your sharing. I am sure we are not alone in saying we get a kick out of it.

Blueberries

Hello!

   ~Now, ZooBoo

Can you find the Weims in the pictures?

20180727_140704Push loves blueberries and & helps himself on occasion. The fence keeps the deer out but not a couple of wiley Weims! ZooBoo (aka Zula Blue) has also found that blueberries are a tasty treat. She has finally settled in and understands that this is her home. She got out of the fenced area yesterday and I almost panicked to find her gone. However, I called her and she came running from the area of the blueberry patch.

Thank you for such a great “golden age” girl.
Marie

Breeder Comment

Well now, ZooBoo is an adorable nickname. We love it–I am sure she does too! Blueberries are health food, right?!? Isn’t it grand they can pick berries? (Haha) Too bad they don’t pick us a box of berries–just kidding, here.
Thank you, for the update on the kids and their antics. We cannot be happier for Zula Blue, either. Thanks, Marie!

Well Now

What Can We Say?

     Marsha Reports…

 

Mastermind Benson

I picked up Benson at the kennel and the owner of the kennel went to get him. Took a little bit longer. The owner came out and said “Benson opened the latch on this pen and then opened a lot of the latches of the other dogs there and they were having a big time.
Benson would open the latch on his kennel and on the gates in my backyard so now there are locks on them. I’m sure this is something other Weimaraners do but it was funny to me.  Marsha

Breeder Comment

We have found that the Weimaraner mind is plotting ways to solve puzzles–like how to open a gate. It is incredible the number of latches we have used over the years. In this daycare setting, it must have been very perplexing to the caregiver to discover the escapes. It was great that nothing untoward occurred. Benson was trying to socialize with the other kids.

Friendliest

Zelda is the Greatest

   ~California Weimar Girl

Stephenson's Zelda_1476
Two years ago we received a beautiful blue female Weimaraner from you folks. We met Cliff in Burns Oregon, we are from California. Zelda is what we named her. Stackhouse was there when we picked her up. Her docked tail has a very notable flip to it. Everyone loves it, as she trots, most friendliest to everyone, except cats and raccoons.

Eye on the Sky

We live in a pretty normal Weimaraner home.  Zelda has been very vocal these days, I can only guess what all the bumbling is about, urban raccoons and skunks.

Dog Park Star

Star of the dog park is Ms. Zelda. As most know, when puppies run into the park the other dogs come over to check her out, sniff, she runs over to the dog’s parent who seems to bother her the most, and plants herself between their legs, they become taken by her and protects Zelda.  LOL LOL!  Zelda leans into pet parents, they think she loves them. She is very sociable there, everyone knows her by name.

She is a Standout

We have come across two other young Weimaraners.  What separates her from the other weims is temperament and physical appearance, her tail flips up as she moves around, she is outstanding.

The Beach; the Ocean and Miss Zelda

This is Zelda doing one of her favorite outings. Carmel by the Sea is where this video was taken. Her parents are Stackhouse and Livee, she was born July 12, 2016.

Love sharing

We are delighted to hear from you. The videos are fun and the photos delightful. It is good to know Zelda is doing well–that she is living a perfect Weimar life. Thank you, for thinking of us, as well as for all you do for your OwyheeStar girl.

Before Summer

A Spokane Family

~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.Crane_5998
She still loves to snuggle. Especially in Dad’s chair!Crane_6069
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)Crane_6082
Crane_6106So 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!

“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?

Laundry And

Our Beloved, Ruger

     ~Celebrates Two Years

20180611_214359Our beloved pup Ruger just turned 2, and it’s been the best 2 years for our family. He adds so much joy and love to our lives! He is such a goofball too!

He loves helping with the laundry…until the squeak of the pantry door. I was folding laundry the other day and he started falling asleep. I snuck off to grab a snack, and who shows up? The kitchen supervisor,  with Jeff’s shirt dangling off his back. He makes us laugh on a daily basis and we are so grateful for him!

Thanks, Shela and Cliff for our little guy! We can’t imagine our lives without him!

Breeder Comment

We are happy to hear that Mr. Ruger keeps you laughing–the shirt trick is fabulous. Thanks for sharing that with us. I know everyone who reads the blog, will identify with you and Ruger. The laundry theme is a common thread I believe.

Maizie you are a smart cookie. You have a reason for each toy choice. Then, you know how you want them organized. Maybe one day we will catch on, too!
