This Week’s OwyheeStar News

Hello from far Eastern Oregon.

Nick gives puppy a sweet kiss. Is it precious or what?

Is it Saturday again? I am hoping this blog will publish after I cleared out a lot of files to make more room. You might have noticed that yesterday’s blog mysteriously disappeared after it was published. Don’t worry, I am working on a plan. The next week is going to be focused on the blog, and making a few changes.

Puppies First!

Regardless of what is happening, it is a puppy first policy. Email, the blog, and the website all play second-fiddle to whatever puppies need. That is our primary focus when we have them coming, on the ground (so to speak), and exiting. This can mean months of attention, rather than the weeks you figure. Once a female is pregnant, or suspected to be pregnant, she gets extra everything. So should she too! Then as the pups grow inside her, and her time appears to be coming to whelp, there is more attention to extra nutrition and care. From the time a mating takes place, it takes about four months (if we get a litter), until the pups are old enough to leave for their forever homes.

These can vary due to the maturity of the litter, the weather, and the ultimate litter goals. Some steps are always the same regardless, but for pups destined to join a serious hunter, it is important to expose the pup to birds, scent, and more stimuli. Ultimately, the most important component is the socialization that takes place. Breeders who let a puppy leave early, and doing the pup no big favor. Puppy development happens through successive order of events. Each breeder has their own way of doing things, but the end result should help the pup develop potential to be trained.

OwyheeStar has many success stories. We cannot thank our loyal clients enough. Each week we try to post news, information, and articles that educate on the Weimaraner.

Here are the links for this week’s posts….

We are perplexed

Who can say why the article we wrote for Friday’s blog disappeared? It is not showing as a published blog, nor is it to be found in the draft’s folder. This coming week we will focus on the blog, It might take two weeks. You can expect some changes. We are not sure where this journey will take us, but we will try to keep you apprised as it happens.

Change brings the unknown

We sincerely hope there is no interruption in the cycle of publishing the blogs. We cannot guarantee that everything will be perfect during this transition. We thank you for your patience, and bearing with us. Change is a part of life.

Thank you again for liking OwyheeStar, and for keeping us updated. We have a couple of exciting updates to share for the coming week.

Many blessings and warm wishes from Shela and Cliff–

(and the OwyheeStar Weimaraners too!)
