This is a recent photo of Willow on her way to the vet to get cheatgrass removed from between her toes. We absolutely adore her and am very excited to add another OwyheeStar to our family. Thank you!
Hello, Julie–we are happy to see the photo of Willow–as well as to hear how much you love her. Sorry to hear about the cheatgrass–it is an evil menace waiting to happen. We are delighted to be working with you again.
My Fur Kids!
Here are some more pics of Liesl and of course Hank. Liesl came to live with us on New Year’s Eve, 2019.
Maybe that’s why she’s such a firecracker! The best word to describe her is “spirited.” She is seemingly not afraid of anything! She’ll chase the vacuum cleaner and her brother Hank with equal energy.
We have other moments, too–such as around the house and at the office.
That is very funny that she chases the vacuum. I am sure many a Weim person wished their Weim was fearless. You are busy with the two, thank you for all you do with and for them.
Hank has been asking Santa for a little brother or sister, and this year he is going to get his wish!
In a few days, Hank’s little sister will be joining the family. Before she arrives, he is getting ready by watching Mom get the crate set up and messing up all the blankets. Hank will teach his sister everything, like how to hike, how to play, and how to get along with Dagny the cat!

It is an exciting time waiting for a new Longhair sister to arrive. We know you have been patiently waiting for us to have a litter. And, it came just in time to call it a Christmas baby. Even better–she doesn’t come home until after the holiday hubbub. Perfect!
~Christmas at the Spight Residence
A Bit Revised….
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go;
Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Charlie Mae all wrapped up
the prettiest sight to see is her face looking at me
And right in front of the family Christmas tree.
From Will and Jill some time back..
You can tell it’s Christmas time at the Spight house!!
🎄. We got Charlie Mae 5 years ago just before Christmas and she wouldn’t leave the lights alone when I was trying to fix them and I wrapped her up. Been a traditional activity ever since!

Will, I still remember when you asked if we had a Weimaraner available thinking smooth coat. We had Charlie Mae not promised, and when those two gals met her– we know the rest of the story. Many years later you have three Weims–two Longhairs. I suppose that speaks volumes about Charlie’s effect on your Weim addiction. Thanks for your loyalty to us as well as your friendship.
Your new babies are beautiful! We named our pup Willow. She’s amazing. I am in awe of her everyday.
Can I ask how long of a wait list you have for long haired blue pups? Thanks so much! All the best, Julie
Dear Julie–we are happy you and the new fur-baby are doing excellent. Thank you, for letting us know. As for the Blue Longhair Wait List–well, we have a few folks waiting (maybe about six) exclusively for the Blue Longhair. We cannot say precisely how long it will take us to get them –we are working on it, it depends upon the girls cooperating. We need the right pairing. If we get the current option, there would be several Blue Longhairs coming by late summer or early fall. We don’t have a clue yet–we will keep trying until we get them, though. At least one person who says they want one has not yet given us a deposit—so there is that. Meaning we have some floaters that want one but are not invested enough to get us the Wait List Deposit. If you want on the list, we would need that deposit, Julie.
Applications are good for a year at most–information gets old. So, at some point, we have to have an updated application. And, as I said it requires the ($100) Longhair Wait List Deposit which applies towards the cost of the puppy. But if anyone who is reading this is wondering–it requires the approved application followed by a deposit to lock in a place on the Wait List.
~Life is Excellent
Best business partner ever! Look how tired she is from her morning run and exploration. She also rounded up the cat who escaped this morning. ❤️
She has the best life! She is loving her hikes!
We realize China is one of Boise’s busiest women–her business, her family, and the community require a lot of her. We appreciate her thinking of us–sharing this update. It is great to know this little Boise Longhair is doing well.
~ Arrived in Boise
First, they stopped at Hank’s Home
Teresa Wrote: China just stopped by with their new puppy. OMG she is so adorable! She had a chance to meet Hank, and they figured out right away that they are related. They had a chance to play in the yard for a few minutes. I thought you’d like to see these cute pictures of their first play date. It reminded me of when Hank went to play with the Spights’ dogs when I first got him. 🙂
I am so very happy to see she already met Hank. They are going to be the best of friends. We know you are going to be really busy with getting her acclimated –doing the right things. We wish you all the best, and let us know if you need something.
~ Grandpa Will Reports–Part One
Since we got Ace on Feb. 8, 2019, the Spight household has been a whirlwind of activity! I’m happy to report my first stint as a “Grandpa” has gone well. Elle (Ace’s Mom) has been doing an outstanding job and continues to show amazing patience for her first very own puppy!
Since day 1, Ace has slept in Elle’s room and she’s the one who’s been getting up at night and taking him outside. Every now and then she asks for an assist from Grandpa or Nana when she’s had a tough night with Ace or if she has Volleyball tournaments the next day. So we swap rooms for the night and let her get some much needed rest.
Ace has done wonderful, we are following the Owyheestar protocol to the letter and have gotten him to the vet for his first round of shots (for us), and has his 2nd appointment soon for his 2nd set of shots. After that we plan to do the tieter test and am excited to explore the lower cost option you mentioned in a blog awhile back. We appreciated the BLOG article a week or two ago, concerning one of Ace’s litter mates who was getting more food and got soft stool. We observed the exact same thing, Ace was asking for MORE food, and when we increased it, his stool got MUCH softer, so we reduced it a little and it’s a little better. Still softer than we would like, but we continue to monitor.
We are so proud of Elle–it is a lot of work to raise the Weimaraner puppy. Of course, she has the best ever parents to help out when things become difficult. Nonetheless, Ace is turning out fantastic because of her expert care and attention to detail.
I know everyone loves seeing the photos–and they look forward to reading more about Ace and his adventures. Thank you, Grandpa, Will for the update.
