Happy New Year!
~No More tiny Girl!
Well our little girl, Dejah Thoris, has grown BIG. Are you sure she isn’t a Great Dane? She started out as the smallest dog in the litter! She now outweighs her big sister! We think she stays inside and eats all the food while Ayla goes out hunting and running around in the backyard. They love to snuggle by the fire!I think I remember Kaiser being the big boy of the litter! I joke about the Great Dane because I have had three in my past life…wanted another one but my husband said absolutely not. My daughter joked that Dejah is disguising as a Great Dane!
We absolutely love her! She rules the house! She is still learning the difference between her toys and other good things to chew up (like my husband’s wallet and credit cards!) we can never be mad at her too long because she is so cute!!!!
Thank you, for remembering us. The two make a striking couple of co-conspirators looking innocent fireside.
We are often asked to predict the adult size of the Weimaraner. We can make an educated guess, but as you well see, things don’t always go the way they seem. :O)
Kaizer experienced his first snow this last week, he had to stop almost every 20 feet on walks to stop and take a bite of it. it was very comical to watch him wipe out repeatedly when he would try to chase his ball outside.
Christmas With the Gray Ghost
Surprisingly he didn’t destroy the tree or eat any ornaments and only once did I catch him proudly walking around with one of the wrapped gifts in his mouth. when it came time to open his little gift he attacked with such ferocity that all the camera could catch was a blur. Hope you all had a very merry Christmas and a Happy new year!-Pete and Kaiser — Idaho
Isn’t it interesting he has his gift? You did well to capture a blurred photo. Thanks! There were several Facebook Posts where the Weimaraner got their present–didn’t touch the others. Then too–there were rumors of those who pilfered without preference at the tree. Some liking to unwrap the gifts more than anything. Others left the tree alone but not by choice.
We have not heard of any Weims eating Christmas Tree Limbs or goodies that sent them to the Emergency. For that, we are exceedingly glad. The fact the young Kaiser is doing so well speaks volumes about your work with him. Keep it up! We look forward to reading about his birding experience. Thanks for thinking of us!
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?

My Best Friend
~ Our Seven Years
Seven years ago my best friend was born. Since then, there have been chewed up passports, coffee spills, emergency vet visits, stitches, and so many tears. But there has also been joy and laughter. There have been couch snuggles, long hikes to hidden mountain lakes, 9-hour road trips full of ears flapping in the wind and loud tunes. There has been so much love. Thank you for loving me in the most unconditional manner, and allowing me to love you.
Happy Birthday, Winchester. ~ Jaime
There have been many changes in your life since we first met. Thank you, for loving Winchester so much. We love hearing about all your adventures. Life is a journey. May Chester (Aka-Winchester) live long and celebrate many more birthdays.
Who’s in my spot?
Oh we love him so very, very much!!!! He’s super loving, smart and just ornery enough to make you laugh often!!! Wouldn’t trade him for the world.
Koda still doesn’t like being in a crate while we are gone! A carabiner solved the getting out issue but I have no idea how he got the zipper on his bed open to tear up the foam. I guess we take out everything except his stuffy while we are gone now. His crating seems to be going backwards. Koda doesn’t realize how stubborn his dad is though. Ha-ha! 🙂
I just wish he would do better when we were gone. I’m sure part of it is due to how much time he spends with me during the day. Working from home isn’t always a good thing. We are talking about taking him to the doggy day care one day a week some friends of ours take their dogs to. I think that would be good for him. Don’t worry, he’s not going anywhere!!! 🙂
I don’t suppose Koda can blame this on the neighbor’s dog.
Lazy Saturday For Ellie
Robert reports on Ellie, “She’s doing well, sleeps in on Saturdays.”
With the weekend around the corner, Ellie shares her typical Saturday look.
More Chilling (if the snapshots stop)
More resting with the cat
if I ignore it, maybe it will go away
Apparently, Ellie lives the dream life that many of would enjoy. Thanks for thinking of us Robert!
I took a couple of pictures on our daily trip to Dutch Bros for coffee this morning. It’s about a 5-minute drive but poor Koda was pooped. LOL! Gabriel wanted his time in the camera too.
We are sure loving this little guy! He’s already grown in the 2.5 weeks since joining our family! :O) ~ Chris
It is a process to figure out how you can make things work. There is no simple solution. Possibly it is best to embrace each obstacle and look at it as a bonding experience. What we love the most about this update is how you incorporate the Weim kids into your schedule. Coffee anyone; everyone?
Yesterday, we read about Koda’s crate-training experience.
