Many thanks to Jan Magnuson for all she does including the competitions. Anyone who has competed realizes the cost on every level. Anyone living within driving distance of Des Moines, WA would be well-served to use her Sunstar All Breed Training Services.

Miller's LeoWith Our Leo

Good morning! We have now had Leo a whole year! He is a wild boy, loving and thinks he’s one of our kids! I thought you’d enjoy this silly photo of him I took yesterday, he was loving rolling around in these morning glory vines in the heat. We sure love this goofy baby!

You may or may not remember Leo’s previous posts. Here is a couple if you wish to look back.

Princess

Bella Celebrates Three!

St Denis's Bella 3YRS-AThis princess is 3. Whoa …how time flies.

Seems like just yesterday we brought her home. This girl stole everyone’s heart from day 1.

She is so adorable and cute.

She barks and chases everything, birds, squirrel, dragon flies ,,, in the water at the dog park 😉 We love watching her and her facial expression is priceless.

We thank you, Cliff and Shela, for giving her to us. She completes our lives.  

Love, Sri, and Kevin

We love how you celebrate Princess Bella –her birthday, her daily activities, and whatnot. The fact that she is cherished is all we can hope for any OwyheeStar offspring. Thank you, both for the photos and the videos. We know everyone will enjoy seeing Bella celebrate her birthday. You have a way of bringing an elegant flare to everything you touch Sri. You bless us with your generosity and kindness. We count ourselves fortunate to be connected. Our wish is that Bella lives on and does well for many years to come. Thanks again for staying in touch too!

Raider Wants You to Wake Up!

When grandma babysits, and Raider loves to snuggle. All goes well until she wants her baby to wake up—at least Raider wants to show her some intense pressing love.

Maize Speaks!

Hi!  I am Maizie.  I am 5 years old.  Recently I had an “owie” that had to be surgically removed.  My roommates Jerry and Linda tried putting various contraptions over my head to try to keep me from licking it.  I thought I would tell you about these.
Maizie Summer 2017-3
I borrowed this blow-up donut collar from a dog named Bentley.  It worked for him.  I didn’t mind it because I could still lick my wound when my roommates weren’t looking.  Eventually, I got busted.  That led to the return of the dreaded E-Collar i.e. The Collar of Shame.
Maizie Summer 2017-4
It made me depressed.  Jerry and Linda didn’t like seeing me like this.  Here is a look at how sad I was.
My roommates called around to pet stores and found me this really great one that allowed me to breathe, eat, drink, and for the most part—made it very difficult to get in trouble with licking.  It is new on the market, called Scratch.No.Mor.  It is like a giant turtleneck that is held together by velcro straps.  They take it off of me for meals.  They found it at Natures Pet Market in West Linn, OR.  Check it out:
I am all better now.  My stitches are healed.  I don’t care about licking it anymore.  I am back to chasing squirrels in my backyard.

Thank you, Maizie, for sharing that story and information with us! You rock!

Anticipation

Perfect weather as you can see by the sky.  She usually knows exactly where we are going and starts whining with anticipated excitement.  Today, however, we were driving in an unfamiliar location–and you can almost see her trying to assess and figure it out!

Maizie is a frequent contributor. We enjoy her adventures. Thank you, Linda, for making this possible. She is also a celebrated Facebook Star. Here are a few of her many posts.

Watch for her five-year update–coming next week. I know you cannot wait to read more about her life.

Don’t Eat the Tulips

Not A Salad!

18119379_10154241739531612_8739486530847479049_nWe all know all too well our beloved Weims can eat almost anything. These photos tell a story. Can we all see the wheels turning? Why would I want my chew stick when there are the beautiful tulips waiting to be picked? 17990739_10154241739566612_1832225702496365279_n

Not every lovely plant is safe for the Weimaraner. Tulips are #6 on the list and follow the daffodil–click here for Web MD’s List. Their list is short if you search you find the number of dangerous plants to your dog is lengthy.

How We Spent Easter

Day of Rest

17992317_1301969653186338_5810763892627142803_nWe have to get our beauty rest. We share our bed with our humans. It is vitally important that we have a good bed and plenty of room to stretch out.

Later (Emma and Alice)

A little sunshine and more comfort. Sometimes it is musical chairs we play.

Clearly, the weather is beautiful in this photo too! Cheryl reports these two girls are the best of friends and sisters. What more could we ask?

Looking Good

Happy Easter!

The photos were taken of Greta (OwyheeStar’s No Regrets) the week of Easter Sunday 2012. The lovely Gray Ghost wearing the bow tie is an OwyheeStar. His name is Miles (Livee X Blue).

Jones's Ramsey_0007

Ramsey is 23 lbs. He is house broke and cage broke. He’s already learned how to sit, stay and lay down. We just love him!

When the new Weim family does well it makes us extremely happy. It is a win for all concerned–the breeder, the pup as well as the family. Getting the first things mastered is of key importance. The underpinning is your relationship–skills without respect do not carry over to adulthood.
