~Lovely in Red
December 13, 2020–Luna’s birthday is today, what a truly wonderful dog! Luna, formerly known as Andrea is wearing red. Her parents are Boone and Dahlia. Luna’s sidekick in this photo is our foster Weim named Bebee.
These Weimies are so comical. When they got their new coats today they leaped all around in the snow squealing with delight. They are such bundles of joy. Thank you very much, Shela and Cliff. Merry Christmas, friends! : )
We are thrilled to learn that Luna is doing so well, and has a foster sister, too. Some asked us not long ago if we had heard from you –they have a littermate and worked with you on campus. We love the red jacket. Merry Christmas.
~ Daddy’s Boy
Mando is 8 months old as of Nov 3rd, and is doing great! We got him in for his neuter 2 weeks ago and all went great with that. I just love the medical shirts that have now. Jill was able to find Ace’s shirt and save us a few $$ by using it for Mando. For the last round of shots we did do the Titer test and he showed too low so we did get the last round of shots and then another Titer and things came back acceptable.
Mando is just about 50 lbs. so far and finally able to hold his own with his big brother Ace (2yr old blue longhair OwyheeStar Weim). The two blue boys (I call them the BBC – Blue Boy Club) play ALL the time it seems. Mando is the brother that actually wants to play with Ace (unlike his older siblings were when Ace joined the family). Ace and Mando’s very favorite game is playing keep-away with the ball. It might be mostly Mando’s favorite game, but Ace doesn’t seem to mind!
Mando is a daddy’s boy and when it’s time to relax for the night, more often than not he finds me and plops down half on the couch and half on me! I love this beyond words, our time in quarantine together really cemented our bond! Every night when it’s bedtime, I call him and in he jumps into bed and stays there through the night. Having said that, he loves everyone, he’s taking to whining when we get home and take him out of his crate. He does so in a way that’s unlike any of our other Weim’s! It’s hilarious, I should try to get a video of it to share. He probably makes the most noise for Elle (my 15 year old daughter), as she seems to get him the most spun up greeting him after getting home.
Hope you like the photos– thanks again for all that you do for us Weimlovers!!!

We are so happy to hear that Mando is doing well–a perfect fit for your family. The photos are fabulous.
As you might know, we have been discussing vaccine reactions on the blog earlier this week. On Monday we talked in general about vaccine for the Weimaraner puppy, then on Tuesday we shared Luna’s story ‘Cautionary Tale‘ as shared by Luna’s Mom Kris. After those two days of talking vaccine and vaccine reactions, we have posted updates. This Mando Update is the perfect end to this week’s focus. We will be talking about Vaccine Titer Testing next week–so, Mando’s experience is the perfect intro to further discussion. Thank you for all you do for your OwyheeStar Fur Family Members–we truly appreciate your family

Hi ! Hope you and Cliff are well! I want to give you an update on Sophia. 10 months old now (can you believe it?!) and she weighs 75 pounds. Martha (vet) said “Keep doing what you’re doing, she’s healthy and at a perfect weight.” 😁
We love hearing the news that Sophia is doing well–and the Vet endorsement that your diet is perfect for her. Thanks for keeping us apprised. Keep doing what you are doing — it is a journey, and in time we will see what you become.
So Much Happiness Shared
Can you believe Colby is 10? It seems like we just brought him home!
The last decade has brought us so much happiness. It’s hard to think about everything having a weimaraner has done for us and sum it all up. But if I had to sum it up in 3 words, I would say best. dog. ever!
These days, Colby prefers lazing around the house and snuggling. He doesn’t ever hesitate to tell me when it’s bedtime. Most nights, my husband comes to bed after me. So Colby takes his place and often nudges his face in my shoulder until daddy comes and kicks him out of his spot.
As he develops more gray around the muzzle, I realize that our time with him is slowly becoming more limited. Still though, we will continue to enjoy every moment we can for however many more years we are blessed to have him.
These are some favorite photos of Colby over the last 10 years along with a video celebrating his birthday. We celebrated his 10 years with a little bit of home made (doggy friendly) ice cream and some peanut butter. He was a happy boy.
Jenn, thanks for remembering us with this lovely update. You have been faithful to stay in touch all these years and give us photos, funny stories, and newsy reports. We do so appreciate it. While being deployed, you sent that great video of you Skyping with Colby–you are the best. Thanks ever so much for everything –and especially for your service.

Thought I’d send you some update photos of Memphis! Can’t thank you enough for this incredible addition to our family!
Thank you, for thinking of us –we cannot be happier that you shared these moments in time, and that you love Memphis.
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.
Hello, LuLu is great. She loves to run up in the mountains or go on walks around the neighborhood. She does very well with the gentle leader harness for walks. She does well with basic commands and she was potty trained in just a few short days. She will have formal hunting training later this summer after she turns 6 months in Pocatello. She was easy to crate train and sleeps well through the night.Her best friend to play and wrestle with is a 100 lb German Shepard!
We are beyond happy to hear that Lulu is doing so well. Please keep us posted–we and our audience want to follow her story as it unfolds.
~ A Little Story For the Blog
You brought Sophia to live with us on Tuesday. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were quiet days in our yard. Saturday afternoon, the two pre-teen girls next door were out in their backyard and when they were talking loud, Sophia barked and ran a few feet towards their yard, stopped and barked again and then ran a few more feet and then stopped and looked at their yard for less than a minute and promptly resumed play.
I told you the story of Azura, as a puppy, running and barking towards the perceived threat, so I thought you’d appreciate this one about Sophia. When Azura barks, Sophia promptly sits, alert, and watches where Azura goes and then runs after her to see what’s going on. This little girl is such a sweetheart, so smart, so alert and learns so quickly. Well, except for the biting thing!
Oh, Sophia is a smart one–and again, a shark-toothed girl, too. (Haha) Thanks for the cute story. Secretly I was deeply concerned about the expectations–what we were looking for in Sophia. Who can guess what will happen, but this story was unusual–and yet, here we go. She did the same kind of confident thing. (Hurrah!)
For anyone raising the Weimaraner, click here to read about the puppy biting thing. I highly recommend this read.
-It Has Been a Year
Henry turned one in December– we got him a year ago in Feb. He’s huge. And loving, very clever and hilarious. He’s such a wonderful pup!
We met some friends who also have one blue and one grey weim! How funny!! Haha And of course, here he is looking beautiful and ready for Christmas. One more fun fact about Henry!! He is SOOOOOO vocal! He sings and talks when he wants things! Is he part husky! Haha
Then there are other laughable as well as adorable moments–we captured some of those here.
We cannot thank you enough for this fabulous update on Henry. He looks to be thriving, and what we notice the most is he is integral to all things family. From all appearances, the resident Gray boy accepted the new OwyheeStar Blue Boy. What a cute pair they make.
~Allie’s New GSP Pup
Here is some pictures of introducing a new family member. Some of these are Skye and some are Haze and then there is my old man Aussie. They are all being introduced to Allie’s new puppy GSP.
They all get along. Haze is the one looking away trying to show Sparta GSP to watch for birds! Skye is sharing her toys nicely with the puppy by dropping them and teasing her to even dare to try to get it! Keller (Aussie) Sparta things he is a fluffy chew toy. ~ Jean
It is fabulous to see the OwyheeStar Weims being so polite with Allie’s new puppy. You have done great things with these girls–we thank you!
