Bird Hunting

~Emphasis on Hunting it Seems

Moxie and I wanted to check in and let you know we had a great day in the fields on the last day of Pheasant season here in California.  It would’ve been better had we gotten a bird but we only saw a small hen and 1 rooster that day who proved to be faster than my mom’s quick draw and shot.  

Smart, wild birds are my favorite!  But that’s ok, we had a good day of awesome nose work and exercise.  Next year we will get them!
Happy New Year to all the OwyheeStar Weims out there, especially the ones living life on the farm in Treasure Valley! ~ Chrissy

The bird got away is a common theme. (Haha) Regardless, Moxie would have retrieved it were it possible. What a great experience to be out hunting together. Thank you, Chrissy–for always remembering us with your newsy updates. They are fabulous!

Cliff, I upland hunt and only started shortly before Moxie came home with us.  We’ve learned so much together, it’s one of our favorite things to do together.

For Those Wondering

About that long coat…she is the softest thing I’ve ever felt.  If you don’t know the Weims, they cuddle hard!  It’s just what they do.  Her silver undercoat is very soft like down but she doesn’t shed like a lab.  This breed is very people interactive.  She wants to be with us, on us, tell us about it and is not shy showing it.  I love her beautiful tail and her eyes.  Those eyes!

Hello! Cliff and I remember when you contacted us about a puppy. The only thing we had available was a Blue Longhair. I have said this more than once to someone over the last few years, “I don’t think you would ever be sorry.” It delights us that we were right.
I know–no one believes the hair is not going to be an issue. It is especially true when they are vacuuming hair from the house for months after the beloved Labrador departed. They are looking for a smooth coat for the reasons you might imagine. Well, some folks love the idea of their dog having a tail. Others not so much–they prefer the docked tail. We do not dock the Longhair tail on request. Some folks request their traditional smooth coat have the European-style undocked tail. We will do that, but the Longhair is meant to have the tail always.
