This Week’s OwyheeStar News

Saturday at Owyheestar

DSC01231I was thinking of pumpkins. They need baked. Thursday brought snow; the early arrival of which was uncanny. The predicted cold weather had previously found Cliff scrambling to get things winterized. The high winds catapulted a couple chairs off our front veranda, and now they are buried in the snow. We need to get them extracted.

We spent the week dealing with the cold, the snow, and loose-ends of a personal sort. When we are busy doing the things–the ones, you love us to be doing, sometimes we ignore our stuff. It is not hard for us to do that either. These are the things like going to the dentist, paperwork, etc. This week; we worked on trying to reel in the lost-to-us, but need done, things on the list.

We have been trying to follow Zula Blue’s current litter each week on this blog. Zula’s babies are all the traditional smooth-coats. That being said, we also have a few longhairs. I must say their whimsical nature is like medicine to my soul. At three-weeks of age, they are beginning to change their looks. I find it delightful. Honestly, I am not alone. People are discovering the other Weimaraner–the longhair. The photo posted here is of a three-week old blue longhair cutie.

On a very personal note……

Cliff and I continue to celebrate the good news regarding my cancer treatment. Yes, I still have to have treatment, but there will be no chemotherapy. We thank our friends, family, and those who didn’t even know us that well who prayed for us. We have felt your love, as well as your support. The journey is not over by any means; nonetheless, it is shorter (and easier) than it might have been. Prayer yolked to a positive attitude makes a difference.

As Always…

Thank you for your love and support. Keep the puppy updates coming. They really help us, and people enjoy reading about your Weimaraner.  ~ Shela (and Cliff)

Uli in the snow….

Uli (Maggie x Benton) is doing well and turned 2 February 4th

Here’s a video I shot when we had a little snow here in Portland.

If you remember her litter she was the 13th of 13 and the only one born on the 4th.  My neighbor recently got a German Shepherd puppy and they have lots of conversations through the fence – no gate so they haven’t been able to play but she has Odin for that.

Breeder’s Comment: We certainly could never forget Uli. Yes, Maggie’s last litter was one of the largest we ever had; some litters have had one or two pups. Uli is something special on so many levels. :O) Maggie has retired, but she left us with some phenomenal pups who live on, and speak to her legacy. Thank you for thinking of us, and sharing this cute video. Snow in the Northwest seems to be a more recent theme. We love it!

This Week’s OwyheeStar News

February 2014 is off and running….

IMG_3820Today, we have a wonderful winter wonderland view from every window in the house. We don’t have as much snow as much of Oregon, but we have enough to set us to work clearing the driveway, sidewalks, and whatnot. Yesterday, Cliff and Dusty went for a walk. They took some great photos. You might have caught the one I posted on Facebook, but I am working on an album.

Here are the links for this week’s blogs….

Snow much fun; snow much work……

DSC_7069CCliff was glad he went down to the timber patch yesterday, and harvest some shop wood. He could have made it happen today; however, it would have been a lot more work. That being said, he has wood to keep the shop warm for a few days.

He is off to clear snow. The tractor is a great blessing. We have quite a bit of driveway, and loops around to Cliff’s father’s drive. You can see the train in the background (along with the wheel-line)–the train is about 1/4 mile from our house. You can get a sense that we have a lot of snow in the valley. We can only guess how much snow was deposited in the mountains. We all know that it is much-needed snow to help deter a terrible drought condition.



Many blessings and warm wishes from Shela and Cliff–(and the OwyheeStar Weimars too!)

~Thank you for being a part of our lives!
