Longhair Loves

~Someone Who Understands

All the right stuff and kisses, too!

Two Years Old


  ~2-Hours Spa Treatment

I’m spoiled

Hope this message is finding you both in good spirits. Just wanted to drop in to say, again, how much we love this sweet boy. He is definitely my husbands fluffy baby. He just got a 2-hour pampering visit with the mobile groomer and smells like blueberries (my husband bought him a blueberry facial, but I’m still waiting for him to get me a facial) 
He loves the extra attention and I think he knows he has my husband wrapped around his paw.

Maybe you noticed Smokey’s eye–it is quite evident. If you want to read more about his condition, click here to read a former blog. We appreciate how cherished, and pampered Mr. Smokey is –and that he brings your family joy. Thank You for everything! Happy Birthday, Smokey!


The Other Weimaraner

Zula Blue’s Five Longhairs — Week Five

Most folks have never seen a Longhair Weimaraner. Above are Zula Blue’s five Longhair pups–she birthed a total of eight pups. Three are traditional smooth coats. Below you will find the same five pups four weeks earlier.

Zula Blue’s Five Longhairs — Week One

To learn a bit more about the Longhairs, you can visit our Website–click here! They are becoming more popular (for good or bad). There is always pros and cons when a dog breed gets attention. Nonetheless, it was not long ago you could scarcely find one in America–now, they are out there. Even some shady types have picked them up it seems. In all honesty, they will never overtake the traditional gray ghosties. (Haha) Still, they are essential to the breed. They have always been in the lineage–from the earliest of times.



Stackhouse Supervising Greenhouse Development-5

When projects happen, Stackhouse goes to work. He is not quite sure Cliff has it right, but he is doing as told–staying in the Gator. Since Dad is distracted it would be a great time to sneak off and check out any number of things–the bird pens, the cats, or to dig in search of a gopher.

Good Boy, Stackhouse!

Draping Lights

On Charlie Mae

     ~The Annual Tradition


“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.
