~ And Water, Too!
Diesel is so into the ball! He loves the water retrieve. Oh, and by the way, Duchess did well in the water too!
As always, my boy Foster is in the mix. He and the Weims–they are pretty much my life.
Yes, Duchess who is about six-months old now also swam. She loves the water. She is a natural.
We wish you lovely summer weather–and lots of opportunities to enjoy the water as well as the sunshine this summer.
Yesterday was a long one at OwyheeStar. We received this lovely photo from the late Arleen’s sister–who doesn’t love this? Jorja has more than a few balls. Sometimes a person needs more–more cookies, more cake, more pie, more Weimaraners. You get the drift. What can we do?
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.
The urban retrieve!
When Luke is not swimming in the pool in the desert he doubles as a backyard urban retriever in between runs in the park.
Well Deserved Rest

He has proven to be one of the most adaptable dogs we’ve had … Cal
How Important is it to achieve the recall? The retrieve. The Fetch. Combined with the essential rock-solid recall it is a thing of beauty. Exercise is easy and fun–for both you and the Weimaraner. The Fetch-addicted Weimar can be eased into the water retrieve. The benefits are nearly endless.
When should you begin? There is no time like the present. The earlier you achieve the recall and have the pup retrieving–the better.

Charlie (7 months olds) is the joy of our life.
Thank you OwyheeStar for finding the right puppy for our family.
He is a natural…
I would be honored if you can use my photos and feature our Charlie on your OwyheeStar Blog.. I would add that he is obsessed with tennis balls and we look forward each day to spending time with him playing fetch. He points and retrieves like a trained sporting dog like its inherit. ~ Darlene
Breeder’s Note: Like so many of you, we met Darlene after the loss of her beloved Weimaraner–Duke. No, we could not replace Duke, but Charlie is applying healing salve for a very painful event. When we met to show them Charlie, they were somewhat reluctant he was going to work. He was a bit older, and a little larger when he left OwyheeStar. He was going into a family with two active big dogs. In the end, we believe this made the transition a lot easier.
