Celebrating Four Years
Hard to believe Maggie turned 4 in December! Thought we would send some photos of her so you could see how adorable she is.
We are still amazed by her awesome personality and spunky spirit. She keeps us young–but she has truly been one of the best dogs we have ever had! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Years!

Dear Phil and Gretchen–we appreciate you folks thinking about us. It looks like Maggie is enjoying life and that she helped make Christmas a lot of fun. Yes, we love her photos. We always enjoy hearing about Maggie and seeing her photos–as do others.
Reporting on Duke
Duke is 9 weeks, 3 days now and adjusting well with us. We are working on the puppy biting, potty training, fetching and walking on a leash. He loves running with the other dogs in the backyard and learning which cats he can and can’t mess with! 😉 He especially loves our cat Tiger who tolerates being tackled by Duke daily! He also loves our walks down to the bus stop to pick up his human siblings. We are really enjoying him, he’s got so much personality and sass already!
Thanks for staying in touch and giving us this update on Duke. We know how much it is to manage the household, a small business, and everything else associated with the family. You are doing great!
If you are reading this and live in the Treasure Valley Sandy has a cake business. You can connect with her on Facebook–Cake Creations by Sandy! You’ll be glad you looked her up.
My Versatile Hunting Weim
I just wanted to take a minute and tell you a little bit about my weim. He has been a ball of joy since day one! He is my best friend, and we literally do everything together. And he gets so bummed if he doesn’t get to go with me when I leave, for something like school or work.From a little puppy, I worked with him to become the amazing hunting buddy he is today. I’ve trained a couple of dogs before, and none of them were so coachable as him. He’s not perfect, but we are still in some of the training. By next summer he should be on point!!! He has an amazing nose, and I’m amazed by what he’ll find.
He is always happy and loves to go for rides in the truck, bed or in the cab with the windows down. And he starts whining like crazy when we’re getting close to our hunting spots outta excitement.you can tell hunting is in his blood, he’s all smiles and joy when out in the blind, he watches all the birds flying and starts to wag his tail like crazy when they start coming in.
He does an amazing job at retrieving and pointing on birds, he does great in water and loves to be outdoors. He loves hunting!! 4:30 in the morning he’s up and pumped to go hunting and has plenty of energy to hunt all day but when we get home, and its time for bed, he jumps on my bed and turns into a snuggleball and take up most of my bed but I love it.
He has been the best hunting dog, truck passenger, Saturday explorer and most importantly, my best friend. And I’d like to thank you so much for everything you’ve done over at Owyhee Star. You’re my number one choice when getting a dog and always be!! Everyone asks where I got such a beautiful dog and Owyhee Star’s the answer!! Thank you again so much!!
Need I Say More?
It’s crazy to see how much Koda has grown in the 4 months we’ve had him. He used to fit on my lap with no problems and now… well not so much. LOL! He’s doing great. Typical 6 months old.
You Know What I Mean
Ornery, loveable, too smart, counter-surfer and a huge cuddle bug!!! Every day I’m reminded why we added another Weim to the family.
Koda has taken on several behaviors from our 13-year-old, Gabriel. He drools while waiting for you to put the food in his bowl, has to be with one of us constantly and thinks the couch/bed is their property just to name a few. They are truly incredible animals!!! Thanks again for adding so much to our family!
Thank you, Chris, for the glimpse into raising your Koda. We know there have been challenges of the sort you would expect. Nonetheless, you have dug deep and accommodated the new fur-family-member. You are in the thick of adolescent behavior issues, but here you are working at the keyboard with your new kid helping you (tongue-in-cheek humor). The rewards are many, but we understand what it takes to make all this happen. Keep up the great work, and we appreciate your frequent updates on the process–as do our readers.
Some Friends You Choose
~Others Select You
Dear Ellie, I see your kitty is still stalking you—or more aptly getting in your space in your previous report ( click here to see Ellie and her kitty in an earlier OwyheeStar Blog).
It is hard to imagine how life could be more to your liking even though you share your space. The furniture looks comfortable, the blankets cozy. We know the stove will soon be lite to keep you toasty warm. What more could a girl want?
Yikes! 5th Grade
Emma & Ella started 5th grade today, and Lulu Jo is not impressed. I did not cry as they flew out of the house so excited to start their new year, oh how they love school 🙂
I thought you might enjoy seeing Lulu Jo! She loves taking her sisters to school but she really likes it when we pick them up! She is such a wonderful addition to our family. We are so thankful to you and Cliff for bringing Lulu Jo into our lives 🙂
We appreciate you sharing the photos that included LuLu. We still remember when you contacted us and the only pup we had available was the Blue Longhair. I said, “I don’t believe you will ever be sorry.” Here we are down the road quite a few years. Thank you so much for making her an integral part of your family. BTW–cuteness runs in the family!
Dear Cliff & Shela,
Daisy has been such a blessing to our family!
Daisy’s only had one accident and it was because I hadn’t put her away while I was getting the kids ready for bed ;-/ We have LOVED every dog that’s been in our lives but are so impressed with how good Daisy has been!!!
Thank u for the reminder about the chip. We did it 🙂 I’ll try to be better with updates in the future lol 🙂 ~ Alisa

Gunner has been a blessing and joy from day one!
He is definitely his own personality but I love that boy like crazy!!! He’s become not only my hunting companion but truly a large part of my family. He was well accepted into the extended family and gets quite spoiled by “Grama” and boy does he love to go visit. He’s full of energy but more than that his unconditional love is amazing. Regardless if it’s been minutes, hours or days his excitement soars when I come home and there’s nothing better than coming home to this “charmer.” Thank you won’t ever fully express my gratitude for placing this bundle of joy (and terror) in my life! We look forward to many more years!!!
Breeder’s Note: We are thrilled to know Gunner brings you so much joy. You two look like you are having a lot of fun together. Thanks for all you are doing for, and with Gunner. We appreciate you thinking of us, and for sending the update.
