~ Western Oregon Suits Her
Lexi made it home! Bella is giving her a tour of the backyard.
It was love at first site! Doug said she did great. He thought she slept most of the trip. He offered her water but she didn’t want any. She has already had some water since being home.
You might remember we had shared that we had two Longhairs available for placement–both were a little older (about 12 weeks). We had given them each a name (you have to have a name at some point)–Lexi was known as Tilly. Her sister went to Florence, Oregon–she was initially called Harriet but now is known as Fiona.
We were happy to learn that both did well in their new placement. Bella (Livee X Blue) is teaching Lexi the ropes–giving her the grand tour.
Thank you Shela. I just can’t believe Stone has come into my life. He is so smart. Ringing the bells to go outside already! My friend came over to drill a piece of wood into the bottom of the backyard fence so Stone can’t escape and the sound freaked Stone out. He ran straight to Blue for protection. And Blue has been barking ferociously at EVERY passerby when we are outside in the backyard. I think he is protecting Stone.
This little guy is the greatest gift. I mean look at those little eyes!
On this Daylight Savings Day, can I merely say how very appreciative I am to hear from you Victoria. It warms my heart.

Thanks for the insight into Stone’s life as well as the great story of Blue’s ownership. Not every situation is going to come together so quickly. We are happy for you, Stone, and Blue. Thanks!

Mylo is growing as time is flying by. It’s hard to believe he’s been with us for 2 months already. He’s such a smart, loveable boy! As you can see, he loves his big brother Koda and also his humans! I hope you are both doing well and wanted to thank you again for sharing these adorable boys with our family.
It is excellent to hear that Mylo is much-loved and doing well. Thanks for these adorable photos of your two OwyheeStars.
~That Makes Us A Two Weim Family
Stone and Blue are getting to know each other. Blue refuses to share his treats or toys and makes this very clear to Stone.
But, at the end of the day, they find comfort in snuggling together. We’ve had great progress with potty training in three days, answering to commands like Come and Stay but not so much with the crate. Stone cries and cries at night until he is too tired and then starts up again after a wee rest. Needless to say, he is adored.
You are doing fabulous Victoria–keep it up! We look forward to hearing how things unfold over time.
We try to have strict rules so all the furniture doesn’t get taken over by the dogs since both Jim and I are allergic to big loads of dog dander.
Our compromise is this: One ancient sofa near the front hall is all theirs. Sucia and Patos know that they can wrestle, scratch, jump on, chew toys and rough-house all they want on “their” old couch. The rule for the rest of the furniture is off-limits. The one exception is this gray couch, and by invitation only, in this picture is that it is off-limits, UNLESS it is covered with one of their fleece blankets. they can only be on it when it is covered with one of these fleece blankets, usually when one of us is on the couch and want a pup to snuggle next to us. Clearly, this was an afternoon that Sucia and Patos discovered that the fleece blankets were left on unattended…….😊
Every household has rules–spoken or unspoken. Sometimes we humans fail to keep our end of the bargain, and it is either confusing or allows bending the rules a bit. (Haha) Weims have a way of working things to their liking. We all know that. Don’t we adore them for their shrewdness — for the challenge they present? I think we can agree, we do.
Thank you, Megan, for this fabulous update. We truly appreciate it!
Sheds, Upland Game Birds–
All Around CompanionWeims
Bailee does good with upland game birds and great with sheds. She used to love the water until my adopted weim, Abel (which we lost in February) convinced Bailee that water is scary. I am still working with her to get her back into it. She loves going out hunting with me, and no matter what I’m out hunting for, she seems to find a shed 🙂
She also likes to go fishing with me whether it be in the boat, or on the paddle board.
When we lost Abel, Bailee was very depressed and even gained some weight. But since adding Bodey to the mix, she is hyper and back to herself again. As you can see in this pic, she was not impressed initially (lol), but she warmed up quickly. Bodey keeps her busy with constant tug of war with the chew toys and always stealing her antlers cause his just aren’t as interesting. They are inseparable.
Bodey is picking up smaller sheds and I think he will do well this season. I’ve got him to bark at the sheds that are too large for him to pick up which I have never got Bailee to do, so I’m excited about that.
And of course, they are both professional Grade cuddlers. They are both crate trained and LOVE their kennel, but they typically sleep on my bed with me. If they aren’t on my bed cuddled with me, they are in their crate with the door wide open curled up with each other 🙂
Bodey has been such an incredible addition for Bailee and me, thanks for raising such great pups! 🙂 ~ Damon
Honestly, I have a very difficult time getting updates from my hunter-type guys. Well, you know—they would rather do almost anything else. I get it.
I am sure you can work her back into the water—Weims get an idea, and it is tough to change their mind but if you act like water is the norm and work he back into it with the retrieve I think you can do this one thing. Bless you, my friend. I do so hope that Brandon follows through. I would be excited to place a puppy with him as well.
~ First there was Koda–now Mylo
Mylo is everything we hoped for. He is super lovable and smart. While he may not exactly love his kennel during the day, he’s great at night. He sleeps until I wake him up to go out and goes back to sleep with little to no fuss!
Thank you both for adding this adorable little guy to our family!!!
Five of the ten Dixie pups went to either a direct referral–or more typically a repeat client. Yes, two of these loyal OwyheeStar folks flew into Boise to carry their pup home as their carryon–one to Salt Lake City and the other to New Hampshire.
While we are very cautious about the longer distances, some folks work out to be excellent placements. First, the right kind of Weimaraner placement is more important than location. We do what we can–we also meet the most interesting folks along the way. Thanks to Koda and Mylo’s family who live right here in the Treasure Valley. We appreciate you!
You might remember that we adopted a puppy that was formerly called Ruby from you folks. We changed her name. Since she is a “Blue” Weimaraner we renamed her “ Sky Blue”. We call her Sky.
Anyhow, we wanted to say we are very happy with our Weim (Sky), she will be 1 year old Dec 31. Her genetics are fantastic. Thanks
Thank you, for remembering us. We are thrilled you are delighted with Sky.
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.
