~ in the works!
Willow just discovered the joys of water! She was apprehensive at first, but we lured her into the baby pool with a floating rubber ducky. The trick was acting as if we didn’t notice her.Naturally, she thought she was getting away with something 🙂 It was so much fun watching her splash around and discover it on her own.Later, she tried jumping in the hot tub, so we know she’s ready to take to the lake this weekend! We are overjoyed that she may love the beach as soon as her boosters are done!Much love – Renee & Tony
We (along with the world) have been watching Willow’s adventures. Thank you, Renee. I love that you have not forgotten Roxy–I see those posts honoring her life. We met so very long ago. Who knew we would be able to stay connected over the years?
Cliff and I are ever so thankful for your loyalty and friendship. We don’t take it lightly. We know Willow will have every advantage available. We sincerely hope she continues to delight your heart. I am positive Roxy is watching over everything–possibly shaking her head and patting her paw to give direction.
Zelda is the Greatest
~California Weimar Girl
Two years ago we received a beautiful blue female Weimaraner from you folks. We met Cliff in Burns Oregon, we are from California. Zelda is what we named her. Stackhouse was there when we picked her up. Her docked tail has a very notable flip to it. Everyone loves it, as she trots, most friendliest to everyone, except cats and raccoons.
Eye on the Sky
We live in a pretty normal Weimaraner home. Zelda has been very vocal these days, I can only guess what all the bumbling is about, urban raccoons and skunks.
Dog Park Star
Star of the dog park is Ms. Zelda. As most know, when puppies run into the park the other dogs come over to check her out, sniff, she runs over to the dog’s parent who seems to bother her the most, and plants herself between their legs, they become taken by her and protects Zelda. LOL LOL! Zelda leans into pet parents, they think she loves them. She is very sociable there, everyone knows her by name.
She is a Standout
We have come across two other young Weimaraners. What separates her from the other weims is temperament and physical appearance, her tail flips up as she moves around, she is outstanding.
The Beach; the Ocean and Miss Zelda
This is Zelda doing one of her favorite outings. Carmel by the Sea is where this video was taken. Her parents are Stackhouse and Livee, she was born July 12, 2016.
We are delighted to hear from you. The videos are fun and the photos delightful. It is good to know Zelda is doing well–that she is living a perfect Weimar life. Thank you, for thinking of us, as well as for all you do for your OwyheeStar girl.
Troy and Macy
~(March 9, 2018)
Here’s a photo of Troy and Macy today!
I just wanted to see how you guys were doing since I haven’t spoken to you for so long. I also wanted to let you know how much we love Troy! When we first got him from the guy in LA in 2009 I was sure it wasn’t going to work. But after keeping to Cliff’s advice of letting him learn from the other two dogs – he melted right in with our home, and into our hearts! Just wanted to touch base with you. God bless!
It is nice to hear from longtime OwyheeStar Weimlovers! Brad has been a faithful fan for more years than we can remember. Troy was his third OwyheeStar. He took the risk to pick him up when things went sideways with his original family. Typically, we don’t do that kind of thing–ask for help. Nonetheless, everyone needs a bit of help from time to time. This rehome situation seemed like something that might be a win-win situation. We are so happy to hear our assessment was accurate. It is outstanding to get this photo and to learn they are doing well. Thank you!
Hello From Kula and Pilikia
Is your life crazier than usual? Do you wonder how you will get it all done–even when you love everything about the Holiday Season? Kula and Pilikia send greetings and talk about their many roles in the household. They have many things they see as the norm.
- Their dad (Brent) goes away and sails all over the world. They have to wait at home with Mom in the home port for his return. They keep Mama safe.
- Their Mama goes to work and sometimes they just have to watch the property. That can be a big job with nosy neighbors and whatnot.
- There is staying in good shape mode in their household too! It involves hiking, running, biking, exploring, and whatever else the folks add to the agenda.
- Finally, there is the sofa warmer responsibility.
- We are the come with duo–we love taking the time to get away to our retreat at Downy. “Woof!”
PS: Dad wanted to make sure you knew we were keeping up our end of the deal here in California.
OR TWO FIT NICELY….
Emma and Alice are good girls
Breeder’s Note: We cannot say this enough. All too many female Weims end up in rescue; more often than not, it is because two female Weims cannot co-exist in the same household. They will both vie for top position. This can end up in a fur-flying situation; that unnerves the entire household. The Weim breeder must be able to access the situation to ensure placement outcome. It also requires a bit more skill that the average Weim placement, to bring home the second female. That is not saying there are not success stories. Nevertheless, if you speak with folks working in rescue, you will soon learn sad stories that are best avoided. In this breed, the female tends to want to rule the roost. They are not of a mind to share space, humans, or their territory; the worst possible decision is to add another dog. Even when they get along well with others, some females will not share their space with another dominant female. Emma and Alice are exceptions.
Almost without exception, a male is a better choice, (when adding a second pup to your family). They will often be content to let the female rule the roost. Keep in mind, the worst possible scenario is to rescue a second female. Most rescue organizations are not going to allow this to happen; however, some people shake the newspaper (and Craig’s list) in search of a Weim in need. This could prove detrimental to all concerned. The idea is noble; the outcome is most likely, anything but that.
