Pushkin

One Year Celebrated

     ~Picture This

For his 1 year birthday, Pushkin graduated from the advanced obedience course. I was not sure it was going to happen. He was fussing while other people and their dogs were going through their paces so I decided to take him outside for a couple of minutes. Unfortunately, just before we got to the door his training collar came loose. That would not have been too bad if someone had not dropped a pork roll on the floor. He spied that, ran over and got it and took off like a bat out of Hades. He was all over the facility and would not respond to a recall as he knew he was in trouble.

I finally got him to sit and did a return and grabbed him by the scruff. Jennifer (the trainer) came over and held him while I got his collar back on. We waited until all of the other dogs finished and then went through the commands. He behaved quite well.
Go figure! Everyone in the class clapped for him when we finished. Ya gotta love the Wiley Weims!

I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving.

What to say? We feel your pain–especially Cliff, who had something like this happen to him as well. (OMG) Congratulations on earning the Advanced Obedience. We could not be prouder of the two of you! Oh, and lucky you to have the late season blossoms.

The Time Change

It’s Exhausting

     ~ Don’t You Agree

Berkley here, “I can’t keep my eyes open, can you?”

The time change is tough on human and the Weimar. There have been a lot of cute posts about us Weims not cooperating with the change in schedule, but seriously, what do you expect? We manage a lot of details within the household. Being on time is essential–when it comes to eating, going certain places, the arrival of the humans, and never more than at our bedtime. So, what’s up with this time thing?

Thanks to Berkley and her family. They always send us great videos and photos. We truly appreciate them. There were other family photos, but this one–don’t you agree? She lives the life that means she is a part of the family–whatever they are doing you see Berkley is involved. We love that!

The Nose Knows

Skye

     ~On the Scent

20181009_130902Our girl Skye is doing great! Vet check and vaccination went really good. She is so social and loving. She makes me giggle when she gets “on the scent” while we are on a walk and she is nose to the ground, tail in the air and those little legs are just beebopping along as if she is dancing on some kind of imaginary line and only her nose knows where she is going. It is the absolute cutest thing. She loves to snuggle and play. And often is found in some strange sleeping positions.

Couldn’t imagine any other breed for our family. We are so in love.

We are so happy to hear that Skye is making your heart happy as well as providing plenty of entertainment. Knowing the story behind the story, we are doubly thrilled to hear how happy you are with the experience. Ah–you are either a Weimar person or not. I think I told you they are somewhat addicting, too. (Haha)
People like you make the work worth doing. Thanks, again!

This Happened

A Dream Came True

     ~ Skye –need we say more?

Remember, how I told you we waited for 11 years. Our daughter, Jazlyn CRIED so hard.
We are all in love. We are over the moon! Our daughter still gets teary-eyed holding her. She is so in love and happy.

And Other News

Very impressive puppy packet. I love my sweet artwork from EG. It really made me smile. We will be getting another pup from you. We need a baby boy blue…..NEED HAHA

Your story touched our hearts–we are glad this little girl could join your family. We can only imagine the journey on which you embark. The stories, the confidences, the adventures you share are yours alone. Well, let’s be honest. People are more apt to tell a Weimlover they think our obsession is silly. (Haha)
Clearly–you are infected already and speaking of a second one. We look forward to your updates –the stories and the photos. We look forward to one day down the road a bit helping you with another Weimaraner. Then, you can join the Two-Weimaraner family group. There are a lot of folks that have two or more. I am not saying that it is for everyone, but alas it is a bit like potato chips. (OMG)
Oh, thanks for loving Evangeline’s artwork. Silly me–I didn’t get it when she said she loved drawing on my puppy papers the most. We are glad you liked your information packet; and that you are a part of the OwyheeStar community. Thanks in advance for your loyalty–it means the world to us.

Pushkin

Novice Obedience

     ~This Happened!

20180814_181827Just a quick note to let you know that my sweet, loving, energetic and manipulative Pushkin graduated from the novice obedience training class tonight. He received a score of 94 out of 100 points. Half of the test was done off leash. We start the advanced class sometime in September. A great 9-month birthday present.

Congratulations to the both of you! Those scores look really good to us. Keep up the great work, who knows where this might lead. We appreciate the update.

Reunions

It’s Amazing

     ~Jorja Remembered

Jorja is loving up on her “interim” Mom, Emma.  Arleen and Emma took care of her until she could make the journey to Belgium.  She hasn’t seen Emma since she was 16 weeks old, but she remembered her.  Jorja was a trouper, she made the 8 hrs flight from Brussels to Chicago, hopping into her crate with ease. Through customs in Chicago, back into her crate after a drink and potty break for the 6 hr. flight to Portland, OR.  She was happy to see cousins Arliss (Arleen’s Blue), Auto and Izzy.  She seems to have a crush on Arliss.

At Home

Jorja is happy and loving her new home 🏡. Her new favorite word is beach.  She and I have started walking with a ladies walking group. She loves to run, greet people as well as other dogs. One lady calls her the new LB greeter. Not to forget the birds–she still loves them too.
I am thrilled with her approach to the water. She also hasn’t been in the water since at Arleen’s when a puppy, but she is in it now! It is going well. We are home near family, she has adjusted. We are doing well.
~Eileen
PS: Here are our some of our very special friends

We were so happy to hear that Jorga was safely stateside; however, the picture you paint is beyond amazing. What an excellent traveler.
It sounds like she slipped into her new life. She loves the beach. She loves the people. She loves everything about her life. Isn’t that fabulous? Thank you, Eileen, for the share. If you live near Long Beach you might meet Jorga, she will be glad to make your acquaintance.

Winchester

Rocks the Dog Park

    ~Sleepy Boy Afterward

Winchester is 16 weeks old and he is so happy and playful. For today’s adventure, we took him on his first trip to the dog park. Winchester loved all the new smells and running free. He was very well behaved the whole time. He was so sleepy when he got home then it was time for cuddles. Brandon and I love having this sweet boy he is truly a blessing.

Breeder Comment

Thank you, we truly appreciate this little note concerning Winchester (AKA Chester). The fact that he brings you joy is evident. We love seeing all your posts celebrating the moments as well as the achievements. Keep up the great work.

Jorga

Stateside

   ~The Pacific NW

Jorga began her life at OwyheeStar–like so many of your Weims. She then, stayed with Arleen (who lives with Arliss) until she could join her family in Belgium. For the last several years she has reported in at various intervals.

Here is the sweet Jorga –welcome back! We are happy you made the trip without a hitch. Below she was preparing for the journey–watching as her home was packed into boxes. For all you who say never flying with a Weimaraner ever–what options are there? You cannot leave the family member behind.

Not a person goes by that doesn’t say she is the best looking dog they ever saw.

Macey and our son are best friends it could not have worked out better. Thanks for your hard work. ~ Don

Breeder Comment

Don, we appreciate your loyalty. After your first OwyheeStar Versatile Hunting Weimaraner passed, you could have gone anywhere. The long distance and the logistics of making this all come together make this all the more amazing. We look forward to hearing about her antics as well as her success in the field.

Wow! A year happens so quickly. To think of the tiny bundle –easy to hold in one hand at birth. It was not that long ago. Thank you, for all you have done with Berkley. People like you make all the time, effort, and expense worth it.
