Jan at the UKC Dog Show
~ Tigard, OR
Beautiful Willow won two Altered Reserve Best-In-Show awards at the UKC dog shows in Tigard, OR this weekend, Yay Willow! Thank You to NW Silken Windhound Society for putting on the wonderful shows, and a special big Thanks to Julie Lechuga who is the hardest working dog club member anywhere! 🙂
Here are a few pics of Willow and me in the ring last weekend, Thanks to photographer Lexi Darienzo !
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.
With 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.
Bella Celebrates Three!
This 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!

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!Linda❤️

Watch for her five-year update–coming next week. I know you cannot wait to read more about her life.
In Southern Oregon
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.
Gracie made this game up as is the way with Weims. She buries the ball under the snow and then surprises herself when she digs it out – every time! She lets me throw the ball every so often so I don’t get bored. Out in the snow with Gracie and our best to you.

Our Dear Little Boy
Can’t believe it was just a week ago that we met you and we brought our dear little Parker home…so many things for all of us to learn!
He’s doing very well and his limp only seems to show up when he gets tired. He’s eating well but he’s still a tiny little guy. House training is coming along…although crate training is very slow. He really seemed to need time to get to know us and trust us before we started much training. Hopefully, it’ll go better this weekend. He’s using the potty bells and knows sit and come, so we’ve made progress there, and we’ve gotten some sleep with only one potty break in the nights. We’ve developed a pretty good routine and it’s wonderful to have him with us.We thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to have this little guy in our lives!Hope you both are well and seeing some signs of spring.Take care,Patty and Dave
Happy Valentine’s Day!
We couldn’t resist this poster! Roy is doing great after his neuter, everything is healing nicely.We know about your struggle with cancer, Shela. I just wanted to let you know if you ever need anyone extra to talk to I would love to lend you an ear. I am here for you. I just feel like you’re part of our family in a way now.Hope you have a great week! ~ Megan
Longhair Parent In the Mix
For those worried that their puppy might become a Longhair because one of the parents is Longhair, here is an example of an adult. Roy (Mesquite X Stackhouse) had a Blue mother who carried the DNA marker for the Longhair and a Father who is Longhair. This litter produced both Longhair and the traditional smooth coat like Roy. Below we see Champion Willow wearing her take. They have a goodly number earned at several shows. She continues to compete and has moved over to agility.
It’s Never Ever Long Enough
A sad day…. this loving brave boy is crossing over the Rainbow bridge… he was my sweet baby boy. Always there for me, forever my protector.. he never left his mama’s side and even in the end he was the bravest boy. I love you so much Luke, be well my sweet Poochie, go find your Daddy, he is waiting, so is Garth man. We were so lucky to have you with us the almost 13 years you were here… Mama loves you ❤
He brought me more joy than you can even imagine. My life has been better Because he was part of it. He was a mama’s boy.
I remember when you first contacted us. I remember when you took him home. It doesn’t seem all that long ago; it seems far away, though. Time flies by, and we try to grasp each moment and cherish it. Nonetheless, they are fleeting and escape our grasp.
Thank you, for being so great over the years. It is tough to post the losses. Lucy had been sitting there for awhile because it was the holiday season. It is hard enough to lose loved ones at other times, but at the holiday, it is an extra burden I think. Mama’s boy is running free and touching noses with people he loved and other Weims.
