“Woof” “and now, every year it this with the lights.”

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!

This Week’s OwyheeStar News

Greetings from Cliff and Shela….

Bernie and Bonnie Blue think the water is good!

Bernie and Bonnie Blue think the water is good!

….August is in full swing, and everyone is busy, busy, busy.

Training happens

Bernie & Bonnie Aug 9 2013 (164C)The weather is warm, so Cliff does the vast amount of his training in the mornings, or evenings.

We are blessed to be able to use our pond. It is not perpetually filled with water, but during irrigation, we can easily fill it. The hay has been cut, which also gives Cliff additional space in which to train. It is important to keep the training fun. Cliff finds the positive (and upbeat) approach almost without exception gets the best results. The Weimaraner is all about the relationship! The weather is warm, so Cliff does the vast amount of his training in the mornings, or evenings.

Three Longhairs

Bernie & Bonnie Aug 9 2013 (181)He has been working with three longhairs (Bernie, Bonnie Blue, and Cleo). Bonnie Blue loves the pond, but doesn’t quite swim. Bernie dives in and snatches the dummy. Cleo is doing well–she is much younger, but excelling for her age.

They have been working with the bird launchers (using homing pigeons), and it is fun to watch. Bonnie Blue is making progress, she came to Cliff with the idea that birds were off limits. I saw her point a pigeon, and also to chase one. Cliff and Bonnie Blue are making progress.

Today…….
