Snow Fun

~ Roxy Loves it –Sage is a No Go!

Roxie and Sage Waiting at the Door

Sage hates the cold wet snow.  She poops and pees 4 feet from the bottom of the steps then stands at the door and barks! At least she doesn’t pee on the deck.  We’ve had dogs do that when there is snow!

Roxy and Cooper

Cooper is our other than Weim rescue–Roxy’s playmate.

Lyle and Mesquite

~AKA Skeet

Breeder Comment

You might remember Mesquite–she has been on the blog quite frequently. She is a retired Mama who found the perfect Golden Year Placement. Lyle has been faithful to keep us apprised of their journey. Not long ago poor Mesquite had a serious accident–she is alive due to Lyle’s quick response. We cannot thank him enough for the love and all he does for her. Please read on what Lyle had to share with us last week.

A beautiful dog.

We are getting snow today!

Later in the Day

Skeet had a ball this morning out in the fresh new snow. She acted like a six-month-old pup.

She has her belly full and is fast asleep.

What’s This?

~out of the ordinary

Winchester woke up like it was any other day this morning until he went outside to go potty. There was this strange white cold powder covering the ground. He was unsure what to think about this so he slowly walked into what he learned to be snow. Winchester realized the snow was fun so he started running around in it. Mom even tossed a couple of snowballs at Chester he had so much fun.

Now he is warming up on the couch curled up next to his mommy taking a nap.

Whitney–thank you, for thinking of us with this special update. It is greatly appreciated.

Lucy and Toby

Has been a while since I shared anything. Toby and Lucy are doing great!
The two shed pics are Lucy’s last week and a pretty funny one of Toby’s very first she’d find!  It’s a beauty. Had a good laugh in the forest at that one!  Do t worry, you’ll catch up to Lucy someday!


The picture of the rock behind them. That was about 15’ high and straight up and down and I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t see it myself; Toby ran straight up it like a billy goat and then Lucy followed and I had to run and catch her when she fell back.  The look on to Toby’s face was right after that. Tell me a dog doesn’t have a personality!


Who doesn’t like car rides and sometimes we get to share the front seat!

Love the first snowfall of the season. 


We even get to help dad with the firewood. 

Out of the two, Lucy has the best nose and Toby’s the most athletic. He must put 25% more miles. Sure is wonderful having two energetic and cuddly furries again!
Have a Merry Christmas!

We are so happy to hear news of Toby and Lucy. They look fabulous–like they are enjoying life. What a great share. It gives people a feel for what it can be like. There is nothing we can say other than seeing the Weims involved in the family activities brings us joy. Thank You–Merry Christmas to you and the Weim kids.

PS: We love your smiling Weimar photo–Toby you are adorable.

Exploring

The First Snow

    ~ With Chloe

What do you mean toe-fur-sickles?

Chloe explores the backyard after our first real snow of the year, unfortunately, it’s been all rain since and the snow didn’t stick around for long. Snow tends to get packed in her feet creating what I call ‘toe-fur-sickles’. 

We brought an 8 week old Chloe home at the end of November 2016, Soon after we had a foot or more of snow and while house training Chloe she became so accustomed to going potty in the snow that as the spring came and snow melted she would seek out the remaining patches of snow to potty on. Silly dog. We’re so excited about adding another fluffy puppy to our family soon and while there will be an adjustment phase- we think Chloe will be a great big sister for our next pup.

We are thrilled to get this lovely update. Snow–well I think most Weims prefer it to rain. (Haha) We cannot wait until you meet your new fluffy family member. Thank you, for being a loyal OwyheeStar family. 

The First Sunday

Of October

     ~I saw reports

16903455_1181464675256469_144163915201259349_o

I saw reports of snow in certain locations. I am going to tell you that we (Cliff and Shela at OwyheeStar) are in no way ready for winter woes just yet. I ran across this photo in the archives, and it spoke volumes. A few weeks we will be talking Thanksgiving and then maybe snow along with expecting Christmas’s arrival.

It’s coming all too quickly. So, I think the only thing to do is to plan snowballs. That is a bit like laughing in Mr. Winter’s face, don’t you agree.

In the meantime, we can think pumpkin and the spooky nonsense of Halloween. Some of you may not celebrate the event. Others might say it is your favorite holiday. Then we will see your Weimar wearing their costume.

On The Snow

Training for Avalanche Rescue

Aamodt_2262
Loki and I have spent much of the last few months frolicking in the snow. We’re training for avalanche rescue which means at this point that we’re spending as much time as we can on the mountain. Loki loves schmoozing the skiers and boarders around the main lodge, and yesterday he had his first ride on my shoulders while I skied.

Aamodt_2174This weekend we’ll be riding the chairlift. It’s hard to say what Loki’s favorite thing is about the ski hill, but riding down in a gondola filled with ski patrollers has got to be near the top of the list. As we say on the hill, he’s a real little powderhound.

When we’re not on the mountain, I’m working on developing his toy drive with short little breaks of fun, fun play throughout the day. We’ve also started some simple tracking drills and hide-and-go-seek games.

All the best, ~Erica

We are thrilled to hear the news of Loki’s progress as well as to find out he loves snow. It is interesting to get a peek into your world. Thank you, for taking the time to share with our readers and us.

Toby Reports

IMG_4985Hi guys! Toby here!
I’m sorry it’s been a long time since I checked in, but I’ve been having so much fun, I lost track of the time!

Lucy and I get to go play in the snow most days. We love it when we can run to our heart’s content!

IMG_5299
Don’t worry about my big ears, they never get in my way when I’m having fun!
Did you know we can smell deer tracks through the snow!!!
IMG_4956
I get to hang out in the shop sometimes…if I’m a good boy and don’t chew on the “good wood”…whatever that means, it’s all good to me! Max just hangs out. He’s boring.
IMG_5176
You don’t have to worry, I always have someone to snuggle with. Lucy takes good care of me. She loves to lick my ears and belly!
I’m up to 38lbs now. Mom says that means I’m a big boy!!
Not as big as Max, though. He used to be 85lb but since he’s boring now, he’s only 79lb. He still loves the snow though!
We had a great Christmas! Santa brought us toys and treats for being good pups!
IMG_5232
Santa doesn’t know about some of the mischievous things we do, so don’t tell him!
There are lots of deer here. Lucy loves to chase them but I’d rather stay close to mom. We watch them out the window a lot.
And when we go on hikes, Lucy finds their trails and brings home good things to chew on!
IMG_4962
I’m very easy going. I love my tummy to be rubbed or licked by Lucy. She’s always “mothering” me.
We hope you guys are well and will have good litters of pups this year.
Until next time…Love,
Toby (and Lucy, Max, Jeff , and Melissa)

Weimar Games

Snowball!

 

16903455_1181464675256469_144163915201259349_oGracie 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.

Snow Place I’d Rather Be

Snow day in Battleground WA! 

Roy is doing great! He weighs around 60 lbs and goes in tomorrow 1/12 to get his neuter. He’s such a cuddle bug, his favorite thing is running. Well, that is other than cuddling in bed. We go to the dog park pretty regularly and he loves all the friends!
