~Reporting from Chester Headquarters
It was so nice this weekend! The sun was shinning and it was perfect for sun bathing on the back deck. Mom and dad sat outside with me and they read books.
After mom was done reading she gave me a nice cold treat because I am a good boy. My mama says I’m spoiled but I think she could spoil me more and I wouldn’t even complain. Talk to you again soon!
Chester, you are so good to write us these updates. Yes, you are spoiled–too. Not a bad thing at all.
Our Lu – turned 10 a month ago. WOW, hard to believe.
She still is ecstatic about snow, runs 2 hrs or so every afternoon, and we currently have 7″ of snow – more the better, to her. She LOVES hunting for the ball, burying her face in it.
First pic was just taken, second pic was from 2019 when we had several feet of snow – and she could smell where it entered the snow and just stuck her nose in and kept digging till she found it.
hugs to all,
Sharyl, Steve and Lu from Sisters, OR
We love reading about the adventures of Lu. About a decade proper–and we hope more to come. Thank you, friends, for helping us with this blog post. I know everyone will enjoy it.

I promised an update on the 10-month old we got from Teal in Seattle. She had a plush life with Teal, so it is hard to call it a rescue.
Dutch is doing well. She has gained muscle, either through natural growth or from getting out more, and confidence. She is quite content out in the back yard for hours at a time which is a change from our previous Weim. She loves basking in the sun and chewing on a stick. We have not introduced her to birds yet, but judging by her interest in them when we are out running, I think she will do well in that regard. She is a pretty good alarm dog, not too aggressive but not too trusting. And she absolutely loves Nathanael, our 14-year old!
Have a Merry Christmas.
Thank you for helping Teal out –sometimes your life surprises you with more than you can manage–this was that type of situation. We are positive Dutch has found a good situation and will continue to thrive within your family. Please stay in touch!

Hi! I wanted to give you an update on our boy Kobe! He was from your litter in March 2020 from Dalia and Boone. He is handsome and so much bigger than his sister Kaia! Lol! We love him to pieces. He loves to hike and run and ride in the boat!
Hope you have a very Merry Christmas
~The Ure Family
Merry Christmas to you–so happy to hear that Kobe is doing excellent, much-loved, and all is well.
~Hello –it is me, Bart
Breeder Comment: We had a couple of blogs (about vaccine reactions) in the works when we received this lovely note from Bart, who lives on the Oregon Coast. It was a different kind of Halloween for many of us. Thank you, Bart for writing to us.
No costume just a pumpkins, bats & corn candy halloween scarf.
Trick or Treat! Bart 🎃
~Perfect Fit For Us
Maverick is now 7 months old and is the perfect addition to our family. Although in the beginning Mav was an irritation to our 9 year old Silver Weimaraner, Mav is now Tebow’s best friend. Tebow always watches out for Maverick. Our family loves to be out doors and so does Maverick. We have taken him fishing, riding at the dunes, deer hunting in Eastern Oregon and today bird hunting in the mountains. He is everything we ever wanted in a puppy. Thank you. We love him so much.
Randy & Becky
We are so happy to hear that Maverick has fit into your life–and that Tebow has accepted him, as well. I am sure your report will resonate with a lot of other readers.
Fans of Tango may remember how much time we spend at the local dog park. Last week, one of our friends, Lucy the German Shepherd, showed up with “mom”, Beth, who told us that Tango had been on the local news. Fortunately, her husband got a photo of the TV screen, or else we would have missed it entirely. It turns out that at some point, I had commented on one of their meteorologist’s posts with a photo of Tango on our back porch from June, and they waited until last week to use it.
He’s even bigger and more handsome now! ~ Tom
Thanks for sharing this with us all–what a fun post. I am sure everyone will love it–and most certainly someone caught sight of Tango and wondered whose Weimaraner that was on the news. I see it shows he belongs to you, but —
~ Dog Park Chance Meeting
Tango arrived at our local dog park on Wednesday, and immediately spotted a long-haired Weimaraner. There are very few Weims in our area, so we took an immediate interest.
We soon learned not only that they were both Owyheestar pups, but that they were the same age as well. As her “parents” described getting her as an older puppy two months earlier, I realized that this was the famous Addie, who had been featured on the Owyheestar blog on a couple of occasions. Now that the smoke has cleared in the Valley, they were in town on a late camping trip, and had made a visit to our neighborhood haunt.
I tried my best to get a good photo, but Addie was very focused on her ball, and Tango was soon focused on one of his gal pals, Susan the Samoyed, who was featured in a prior Tango update. They were just visiting our turf, but we’ll be sure to keep an eye out for them once camping season rolls back around.
Hello Tom–thank you for getting this newsy update that included Addie. I know everyone is going to enjoy it as much as we did. We love that Tango is such a friendly boy.
~Reducing exposure to TSP (total suspended particulates)
Hello from the smoky Willamette Valley boasting the worst air quality in the world. To help reduce Porsche’s exposure to TSP (total suspended particulates), this simple fix should work. Take a six inch coffee filter cone (a vacuum cleaner HEPA filter would be even better); cut enough off folded edge to miss eyes; open large part; stuff it inside a well ventilated muzzle; voila, you have a doggie mask. Porsche is not thrilled with it, but it allows her a bit more outside time. We are blessed with the ability to let dogs out right into the kennel for business. If someone has to walk their dog, this might help. This is a home remedy, not a scientifically tested filter system.
I worked 15 years with the American Lung Association dealing with air quality issues, and feel this will help.
God Bless you all; stay safe.
Thank you, JuneAnn, for this information.
