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.

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.

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.

Above are some adorable photos of Misty in the snow recently, here in Southern Oregon. She loves running as fast as she can through the snow.

Tummy Rubs are Important

Tummy rub please...

Tummy rub please…

After she charges through the snow, she likes to take a break on the couch to get a tummy rub.

I really enjoy noticing the different hereditary traits that are passed along with your certain lineages. It seems like Misty(Mousse X Benton) has smaller ears and a thinner face, which is just so cute. young sky in 2011But, of course I also love our other Weim, Sky, that has a broader shaped face–as you know she resides with my brother’s “X”; I don’t remember her lineage.

Happy Winter!! ~Shannon

Breeder’s Comment: Thanks Shannon for taking the time to update us on both OwyheeStar Weims.  We are glad they are much-loved, and well cared for in every way. There are differences, and sometimes when the DNA weaves through you get variances. The Weimar face is endearing (wide or narrow). They are all capable of etching forever memories that keep us laughing long after they depart our life. People get caught up on a certain look, but it seems to us the temperament and health are far more important.
