Columbia’s

~Family Reports

Columbia loves her new home on her very own 160 acre pear orchard! She’s already eaten, pooped and taken a nap. She definitely feels at home here and we all love her so much.

Breeder Comment

Not so long ago Columbia was here (at OwyheeStar). We used terms like ‘Happy-Camper’ and ‘Tail-wagger’ –we were glad to find her such an excellent forever family. Thank you–for letting us know she is adapting well.

Breeder Comment

We are thrilled to hear that Astra has settled into a good routine–doing all the essential things. Of course, snuggling might be at the top of the list.

Not so long ago–she was loaded in the crate on her way to join her forever family. It is funny how in a very short time it seems like they have been with us forever.

We appreciate you thinking to drop us a note about your Astra. Not all that long ago she was loaded up and traveling to join her forever family.

Her sweetness most certainly was a thing. The Great Granddaughters adored her–I suppose they hated to see her go. Well, it is a good lesson. We do this for other people. We cannot keep everyone–not even close. (haha)

Spring

~Mud and This

And this at the edge of the yard

I know when spring has returned as the moles or gophers, as the case may be, have returned.

Pushkin is on the trail of the offending varmits that leave piles of dirt everywhere. I am not sure what he will do if he ever catches one!

What can we say? It is a battle of the yard–who will win? We are surprised he has not yet caught one. He will we are sure, then you will know the answer to your question.

The Solid Retrieve

~Finn’s Adjusting Quickly

All is going well. As you can see, he loves the retrieve. He also loves harassing Gunner but Gunner is letting him get closer.

Oh and we have a winner here–he is great in the crate. Sleeps thru the night….which is about 6 hrs. Gets up with me and goes back in crate for a little while gunner and I run and family is still asleep.

Breeder Comment

We are happy to learn how Finn is coming along with getting Gunner’s approval. (Haha) it is fabulous to hear how he has adjusted to the morning routine. Not so long ago he was with us–

From the Oregon Coast

~ Our Sweet Boris

Our sweet Boris is scratching and itching. We think he has fleas. Is there a flea product you recommend? I use revolution for my cat and used it on my last dog Moon. But after reading Cliffs pamphlet. And learning how sensitive these dogs are. We are concerned. Today Claude plans on giving him a bath we don’t want anything toxic for our pets. We do believe in natural remedies.  And want Boris to have the best care we can give him. Right now Claude and Boris are outside playing in the rain. He is such a joy.

We tried to get you the photo you wanted– it’s a bad pic but it’s the best I could do right now. He’s a wiggle worm. Already working us over. He rings the potty bell. A couple pee pee accidents, but it was our fault for not acting quickly . Now he rings the bell because he wants to go outside and chew  on pine cones and tree bark. He’s such a rascal! Feeling comfortable at home . Don’t have a minute to spare. He’s barking at me now . So gotta go! I’ll send a better pic when my daughter is here to help us out.

Boris with our Granddaughter (Ashley)

We understand that getting a quality photo of a young Weimaraner can be a challenge. Thank you, for your effort. I am sure everyone loves seeing Boris with you.

It sounds like you are doing well–we trust you got the information we Emailed you. Please let us know how it works. For those who wonder–this pup was older when they got him. We had and have a few available pups that are older than the traditional eight-weeks. To find out more, Email us.

Bella

~My Sweet Girl

I hope you are well. I got my beautiful Bella from Owyheestar back in April 2014. She is the love of my life. If I recall correctly Bella’s parents were Livee x Blue. Bella had a sister named Ruby who looks exactly like Bella. I sometimes wonder if they are twins. Bella is such a wonderful companion. Her personality is very sweet, calm and loving. We run together almost every morning.  

I used to have two weims (both passed away some time ago) and always knew I wanted a second. As I was visiting your website today I saw you have two longhairs available. I’ve always wanted a longhair. I was wondering if they were still available. I would be very interested in learning more about them. I can complete an application but thought the first step would be to see if they were still available.  

One quick story. Bella and I were hiking at Smith Rock State Park and came across another blue weim. We stopped and chatted and the owners said they also received their weim from you. Blue was the father but they had a different mother. I was so happy to run into another weim from Owyheestar.

At Eagle Crest –March 10th

Thanks so much!

There are quite a few OwyheeStar Weimaraners around the Pacific Northwest. It is always fun to have a chance encounter with another one. There is the group of Weimlovers who meet in Salem once a month–quite a few OwyheeStar’s typically are there.

We look forward to working with you as this process unfolds. Thanks for your loyalty.

Lu Enjoys Winter

~ Most Everyone is Ready for Spring

Searching for the ball

She adores racing around before the retrieving starts – making endless circles, just enjoying herself.

BTW, it looks almost looks like she’s pooping! – but no, that’s her tail!

But then it gets serious – she actually drives into the snow banks, finds the ball, comes out snorting snow – which of course makes her drop the ball and the whole process starts again.

March 6, 2019 –Here is the video Steve took this morning (snowing again!) of Lu searching for her ball in the snow. The snow has melted some, but you get the idea….


Reward at the end is napping on the heat vent. She’s perfected it!
personal note – snow has been lovely, but thanks, am done with winter right now!

Breeder Comment

Well, Lu is making the most of her snow experience. There is no lack of it in Sisters, Oregon this winter. You are not alone–many Pacific Northwest Locations have more snow than typical, and many folks are beyond ready for Spring’s arrival. Thank you, Sharyl, for this lovely post.

Shopping

~ AKA Counter surfing

The pumpkin pie guarded by the egg.

Although I do not recommend tempting a dog, most of the Weimaraners I have owned have been shoppers also known as counter surfers.  Porsche was no exception until we got “The Sonic Egg”.

Porsche wants nothing to do with it.

The egg is motion activated and blows a puff of air, which in Porsche’s case went into her face and startled her.  If someone is looking for it, it was made to deter cats.  A savvy clerk at PetSmart thought it might do the trick for us, and it did.

Breeder Comment

It is interesting that it deters Porsche. I am not sure it would work for every Weimaraner, but apparently, it does at JuneAnn’s home. I do read that folks are having a lot of problems with the unit. I hope they keep making them. I can see that they could be handy in several situations. Thank you, JuneAnn, for sharing this novel idea.

Kimber

~ Smart and Playful

Hey there,

Charlie and I just wanted to give you an update on our Kimber girl!

She’s doing amazing. She is so smart and playful. We are really starting to see her personality come through! She also loves the snow. Thanks again for such a great pup.


Hope all is well!-Alix & Charlie

We are happy to hear that Kimber is doing well. It looks like you got the snow, too. (Haha) Thanks for the great pictures and the positive news.
