We love Waylon so much, that we are contemplating a sibling.
I’m really torn because I feel like it’s taking away love from him. But we also lucked out with him not being a chewer or counter surfer etc. But he’s four now so I’m feeling likes it’s now or never. I don’t think I could ever have another dog after him
For all of you who love having two, or don’t–drop your thoughts to Cristi. Thank You! And Cristi, we look forward to working with you again–I believe you meant another breed of dog. Of course, the Weimaraner doesn’t consider itself a dog. We all get that.
The Boys Who Bring Us Life
They take us on a run every day, or else. They rule the roost. We cannot live without Weimaraners
I cannot thank you enough for making our lives whole. Even though they are pushy, loud and in control of me.
We enjoy reading about their life (and antics with you)–thanks for this lovely update.
~One of Each
I hope all is well with you and Cliff and the dogs! We have had quite the summer over here trying to keep kids and dogs entertained while also maintaining all the social distancing requirements! I wanted to send you a quick update and some pictures of our girls.
Frida (Bernie x Boone) is still very much a puppy, but has calmed down enough to cuddle with the kids on occasion. She loves everyone and every dog she meets, even if they don’t necessarily want to love her back! She’s turned into a fantastic running partner and only gets distracted by squirrels and deer. When we can convince her, she enjoys a very quick dip in the pool.
Clover is warming up to everyone still, but is no longer nervous around the kids and their noise. She has been joining me and Frida on our morning walk/jogs and is getting good on the leash. She’s also happy to inform me (quite vocally!) anytime there is another dog, squirrel, horse, bird, anything nearby.
We spent a day up at Lake of the Woods a few weeks ago and brought the girls. They loved lounging on the boat and barking at any ducks we came across. As you can see in the pictures, Frida provided an excellent pillow for my daughter when it was time for a quick snooze.
Thank you again for both of these amazing dogs. Our life would be so much less exciting without them!
Lauren, Chase, Kids, Frida, and Clover
Most certainly, life is fuller, more demanding, and exciting with the Weimaraner in your household. Some people lament their decision to add the Weimaraner. Most Weimlovers cannot imagine life without at least one. It is unthinkable. No matter what Weimaraner we get, there are challenges of one sort or the other. Thank you, for being one of the great OwyheeStar families–and for adopting Clover into your family.
~Along with Tobryn who will be Eight this Year
Tallyn beating the heat and humidity, He just had a birthday (5th) and celebrated with a T-bone along with Tobryn who will turn 8 in October.
I just turned 70 and wondering if I have the energy to raise another weim. Somedays yes, somedays no. I will send a pic of Tobryn. Hope you and Cliff are staying cool and staying healthy. This covid virus has changed everyone’s life as we use to know it. I am doing great. Ron (Fargo, ND)
Ron–we understand what you are saying, but here we are with my (Shela’s) 70th on the horizon. (Haha) We are happy to hear that you are the boys are going strong and doing well. Thanks for remembering us!
~Turn 6 today!
Hello –we just wanted to share you some pics of Titus and Sawyer my boys who turned 6 today that we got from you years ago. Thanks so much I love them!
Tom & Stephanie
We realize how busy you are with your practice and everything–thanks for thinking of us.
Good morning! Just a little update on our beautiful Blue Sky!
Today was her 12 week booster shots and she did great. She weighed in at 18.3 lbs. On her 9 week visit she was 12.4. Shes growing leaps and bounds.
Nutz (Bernie x Boone) is taking a bit longer than we were hoping to adjust to her younger sister, but she is. But she is coming around. Our grand-dog took to her pretty quickly. She has the same obsession with “balls” as her big sister, but is easily distracted, as most puppies are.
She loves being outside, no matter what time of day, and follows Nutz around. When she get cold or tired she curls up on my lap for a little snuggle time. She is loved by all and everyone thinks she is beautiful … who can deny that?😁
Hope all is well with your family!
Mark, Robin, Nutz, Sky and Rhea (grand-pup)
Sounds like your Grand-pup was excited about having the new upstart, but as expected Nutz was slower to adjust. (Haha) They will be the best of buds–snuggle time works, too.
-It Has Been a Year
Henry turned one in December– we got him a year ago in Feb. He’s huge. And loving, very clever and hilarious. He’s such a wonderful pup!
We met some friends who also have one blue and one grey weim! How funny!! Haha And of course, here he is looking beautiful and ready for Christmas. One more fun fact about Henry!! He is SOOOOOO vocal! He sings and talks when he wants things! Is he part husky! Haha
Then there are other laughable as well as adorable moments–we captured some of those here.
We cannot thank you enough for this fabulous update on Henry. He looks to be thriving, and what we notice the most is he is integral to all things family. From all appearances, the resident Gray boy accepted the new OwyheeStar Blue Boy. What a cute pair they make.
~Sharing a Bed
We have two Weims from you. Both from Stackhouse. One long hair and one sliver.
They love the snow.! One swims and the other one just likes to Wade in the water. You can see they are both lap dogs.
People ask us how we can let these adorable pups go after pouring our heart and soul into raising them–and here is the answer. We do it for others, and to give each pup the best possible life.
People like you make all the work worth doing–thank you for the update. We appreciate you!
Sage is still doing fine. She isn’t always impressed with things such as me not being able to find her regular dish–and her having to eat out of a Cool whip container. This happened because I couldn’t find the dog dishes so I grabbed that for her to give her breakfast. At first she just looked at it like she wasn’t sure what to do with it but, being a Weim, she figured out there was food in it so she went ahead and ate out of it. It was funny to watch her.
In the photo at the top here she is laying on a blanket. She was being goofy and kept barking at Copper like she was daring him to try to take it away from her. She does that with her bone sometimes in her crate too. It was pretty funny.
When we had the VBS Emma and Naomi and her mom stayed at our place in their camper and Naomi found a hanky in my room and she went and covered Sage with it. It was so cute–Sage is just so extra special with little kids that’s what was really funny
Had to Happen
The dogs all three got baths because the septic backed up and the good news is that it didn’t back up into the house. Anyhow John Paul had hit one of the vent pipes with the high Grass mower and they did a temporary fix by simply putting an inverted bucket on top. (It would have been okay, but you know.) Well I noticed the dogs drinking water from around the bucket and with closer observation realized there was toilet paper in the water so the guys made quick work to get the septic fixed. I had to give three dogs baths with the boys help. They sure look funny dripping wet.
Emma (my goddaughter) who I have over quite often sits here with her buddies Roxy and Copper. Roxy and Copper like to watch out the window for the chipmunks and wild rabbits and then of course they bark and go completely insane. Of course, then they want to go outside. I know it’s kind of goofy but anyway we’ve had to really watch cuz Copper all of a sudden decided he wanted to get a good sniff. He started sneaking out the back door–something he’s never done before.
We are glad that Sage and Roxy (and your non-Weimar Black Cur–Copper) are all doing well. You have a very busy and exciting life. Thanks for all you do. We are especially thankful that you adopted Sage and Roxy–not a young puppy. You have given them the best possible situation. Thanks, again.
~Have You Heard of a Soft-Mouth?
(8/15/2019) I have to tell you guys about Tikka today! We’re camping on a lake and we paddled out to an island, well Tikka obviously “found something ” she was super excited and kind of lounged then it looked like she tossed something but kept after what ever it was. I noticed a mama bird that was upset so I called her off. As we were leaving she ran back that way and started swimming away from us and wouldn’t come when called. When she finally came back it was obvious that she had something in her mouth (dang it a dead baby bird!) . She was swimming differently, slow and careful. She swam directly to me and gave me a live baby bird that I returned to it’s nest
😊Here are some photos from our recent adventure.
Supposedly, the Weimaraner is not naturally soft-mouthed. Small game and game birds frequently don’t fair well–but having said that, Cliff had had many a retrieved bird fly out of an OwyheeStar Weimaraner’s mouth. A soft-mouthed dog is a good thing.
Thank you, for sharing your story–and all these great photos. We know everyone loves seeing Tikka and Luna.
