To say that we value those folks who share our passion would be an understatement. So many of you who bring home the OwyheeStar pup make them an integral a part of your family. We see the Facebook posts. It warms our hearts to know that all the work we pour into the process makes a huge difference.
We have included a smattering of photos we saved. Some were sent to us via email. Others were Facebook posts–some of which you had tagged us in the post. The OwyheeStar might be found on the sofa, on the bed, and in at least in one instance on the piano. We understand Gibson is challenged as a support artist. They can be found staring out the window anxious awaiting somebody’s arrival or making sure there are no interlopers. They frequent boats and are at home in and around the water. More than anything they want to be ultra close. You make a great pillow if you can just stay still long enough for them to get a nap. For your information, the two pictured using their master’s head as a pillow are not the same Weim. Another place you might encounter the OwyheeStar is on the beach. More often than not we are speaking of the Oregon or Washington Coast. Some of these Weims live at (or near) ocean front locations. Some, like Rupert and Wendy, visit the coast often.
Thank you for sharing with us via email, Facebook, and in other ways. Our hearts are forever joined by one or more of these wonderful creatures.
Breeder’s Note: Please understand that Meg is a doctor. She works around the clock on some days. Her schedule varies, and for this (and other) reasons she wondered if she should bring home a Weimaraner puppy. The question was not so much as if, but when. Should it be now, or should she wait until things are more perfect for bringing home a puppy. No one can tell a person when the right time is to move ahead; but we know a lot of people who have put their dream on an indefinite hold. Things have never been ideal. We are glad that Meg could make this happen now. Here is the lovely note we received regarding her new best friend.
Shela and Cliff-
Thank you, thank you, thank you….. for such a lovely dog! Sucia (named after one of the San Juan islands I love to paddle around) has been an absolute joy! She is playful, inquisitive, beautiful and makes me laugh so many times each day. She is independent and plays well by herself and with others. She does have cuddly moments each day, when she seeks out my lap and snuggles into it, burying her nose into my side and making little contented puppy sighs and grunts as she falls asleep. Very sweet.
She has fit right in at Jan’s (who you met) house where she lives when I work my 24 hour work shifts. Sucia is being ‘parented’ by Jan’s two sweet pit bulls, and is being socialized by them how to interact with big dogs. It is a joy to watch Sucia go zooming around the yard at Jan’s, playing with her two big sisters. In addition, Jan has a 14 yo neighbor girl who lets the dogs out each morning and afternoon to play in the yard if Jan is working. Mindy is over the moon in love with Sucia and is keeping a puppy journal about what she does every day. Sucia is a great car traveler, and spent 5 days with me on Orcas Island at my tiny cabin last week. She enjoyed the freedom of exploring my property and sniffing out all the good sniffs there. She loves stalking and pouncing on big pinecones! She has gone swimming in the freshwater inland lakes there and is a good hiker and beach walker. Imagine all the good smells on a saltwater beach!
I took her to the Orcas Farmer’s Market on Saturday and she made many new friends. Everyone wanted to say hi and she was mellow and warm with adults, little kids and many other dogs. She is getting a great socialization period. I am thoroughly enjoying her and appreciate all the hard work that both of you have done to breed such wonderful pups.
In short, I am in love. Thanks, Shela, for patiently waiting for me to realize that little girl number 3 was supposed to live with me. ~ Meg
