What can we say? Congratulations hardly seem to be enough. For all the natural ability as well as Willow’s excellent temperament none of this would have been possible without Jan. It takes dedication and a lot of hard work to garner a prize, ribbon, or title. When the list of titles continues to grow, it is beyond impressive–the stellar performance makes us so proud too!

PS–what a fantastic photo!

Two Smiles

 Better Than One


Jan and Willow

When you smile it makes other people smile–if not on their lips, in their heart. It is a gift. It can change someone’s entire day. Smiles are a powerful thing. Some of us humans (and Weims) have a better smile than others. Whatever you have (smile wise) use it.

Willow and Jan are always busy bringing a bit of sunshine to others. They work the community events; they visit those who need help, and they are a favorite with the kids. Willow outshines Jan at these events. People know Willow’s name even when they forget Jan’s name–or call her police lady. If you look carefully you might capture another Willow smile.

Cartwheel-turning, handsprings,  and smiles are Friday events. I think the Cartwheel might be a bit much for us, but we have sent you a smile or two!

Happiness Happens

Promises Made, and Promises Kept

Breeder Comment: You probably remember Goldee departed to fill very large paw-prints left by the departing Emma. Since then, she has been busy in her new position. In a way, she is a therapy Weim. Aren’t they all? Emma had been a poster child, sporting her wheels that provided mobility when her own hips failed. Saying good-bye to Emma was beyond heart-wrenching. Goldee has stepped into the home (not replacing Emma), but certainly bringing joy and laughter. Emma must be looking on with approval, and relief.

Adjustment, Change, and Positive Outcomes

I just wanted to send a quick note and let you know that we are so thankful for Goldee.  She has been an amazing addition to our family and has brought a lot of joy into our house.

Al fresca

Al fresca

She has actually been able to help train our lab to walk properly on a leash, there is still work to be done but it’s a lot better.  She likes to sleep in the middle of the bed, surrounded by 5 or 6 babies that she brings with her.  I have never watch a pup collect stuffies in one area, it’s quick funny.  She has gotten the hang of eating inside, although, I think she still prefers eating al fresca!

I am hoping to get weekly obedience classes set up within the next week or so, mostly for me, not her.

She is a true gem and we will never be able to thank you enough.  ~Holly, Joe, Autzen and Goldee


Breeder’s Note: When a Weimaraner leaves OwyheeStar, there is often a promise to stay in touch. Along with that statement, people promise photos. As the process unfolds a person gets caught in the process of keeping up. There is the housebreaking, and then training. Struggles happen, and very often the only time we hear anything is when something is amiss. 

Goldee’s departure brought promises. As it happens, Holly’s mother is a very well-known pet photographer–click here. She said we would find our mailbox, and Facebook flooded with photos of Goldee. Terri (and Holly) would be found true to their word.
