Our Lu – turned 10 a month ago. WOW, hard to believe.
She still is ecstatic about snow, runs 2 hrs or so every afternoon, and we currently have 7″ of snow – more the better, to her. She LOVES hunting for the ball, burying her face in it.
First pic was just taken, second pic was from 2019 when we had several feet of snow – and she could smell where it entered the snow and just stuck her nose in and kept digging till she found it.
hugs to all,
Sharyl, Steve and Lu from Sisters, OR
We love reading about the adventures of Lu. About a decade proper–and we hope more to come. Thank you, friends, for helping us with this blog post. I know everyone will enjoy it.
You might remember we recently relocated to Colorado, and we were sad to say goodbye to Lily’s day care friends–and her life spent on the beach. We wondered how she would adapt to the change. Lily adjusting from beach dog to snow dog–here is the evidence. Lol
We are glad you got settled in Colorado–and the video and photos are delightful to see. Thank you! Readers you might want to check out this previous post to put this one in perspective–click here.
~Running Through the snow
We hope you enjoy this video of Dasher, dashing through the snow. He’s a happy pup and a bundle of energy all year round!
Happy Holidays ~ Audrey and Dave
This video seemed perfect for our Sunday post. Thank you, Dave and Audrey, for the cute video of your Dasher playing in the snow.
—Push loves the snow, Zula not so much.
ZooBoo is doing great. However, she does not like the snow or perhaps it is the cold. She goes about two feet off of the covered patio to do her business and then comes right back in.
~What A Difference a Year Makes
Push on the other hand loves the snow. We have been outside playing fetch in it four times already this morning. Push and I are on temporary hiatus from formal obedience training. We will pick the formal training up again hopefully in the spring.
We are happy to know that both Zula (ZooBoo) and Pushkin (Push) are doing well. At least one loves the snow–well, and Zula gets off the deck even though there is the white stuff everywhere.
~ Roxy Loves it –Sage is a No Go!
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.
~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.
The First Snow
~ With Chloe
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.
She runs fast; like a Bullet through the snow
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
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. But, 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.
