Finding Sheds

    ~With the Weimaraner (or two)

Crane's Shed Hunting_4567

Lucy teaching Toby how to find sheds. Another successful find!

We have written before about Shed Hunting. Please click here to read an article that will give you more information on the Weimaraner and Shed Antler hunting.

OwyheeStar Weim families–if you have experience with any discipline we would love an update on the process. Our readers want to share in your success and learn from you. We would love a recent story about hunting sheds with the Weimaraner and how their nose lead you to finds. We appreciate the snapshot of Toby and Lucy and their recent Antler find.

Life

With Our Two

     ~ Unique Girls

30656691_10211854209531615_7792702852710793216_oThe girls are great, they are so different; I think Tikka actually thinks she’s a dog! 😂😂She will spend hours outside entertaining herself, sometimes I will lock them both outside so I can clean … Luna thinks I have totally deserted her, while Tikka doesn’t even realize she’s locked out😊 Tikka definitely has the weim stubbornness at times, but nothing we can’t work through.

Our Two Blues

~ They couldn’t be more different

Kula won’t let me work at the computer at night. She wants to sit in my lap or tells me it’s time for bed, let’s snuggle. She is glued to me. I love her so.

Thank you, for always keeping us apprised of the Weims. It means a lot. We will never forget the first one you folks got from us. He was the Gray Ghost color rather than the Blue but loved just as much.

Weims are rarely the independent type. More often than not they are the ultra velcro personality. Both can have their advantages.

 

It’s Nutz

Nutz says, “You need some love, Mama.”

My baby girl is almost as tall as I am.   She’s growing like a weed,  but she still thinks she’s “little”.

Here is our young pup (Nutz) along with the Old girl (Jet)

Breeder Comment

Our relationship with Mark and Robin goes back quite a few years. In fact, their parents also have an OwyheeStar Weim from us. We appreciate our loyal folks. Most of you realize we have been doing this long enough that we have a high percentage of repeat families as well as direct referrals.
Mark and Robin want to add a third Weim to the mix. Jet is up in years and doesn’t want to play with the high-energy Nutz. They want to get her a new playmate soon. That will most likely make Jet happy, too. Nutz was featured on the blog a few days ago. Click here to view that post.

Gracie

Feeling a Little Irish

       ~Yesterday

Frisch's Gracie_3930
Had to send this along to you! We got such a laugh today when I picked up Gracie (R) and Harley (L) at daycare. St Patrick’s Day crafts for all.
Gracie just turned 4. It has flown by. She is such an elegant sweet girl!
Best to you  –Nancy and Tony

Thank you, Nancy and Tony, for remembering us and sharing this lovely snapshot. For those not familiar with Gracie click here. Along the way her family rescued Harley.

Two Blue Gems

Troy and Macy

     ~(March 9, 2018)

Meyer's Troy and Macy_1773

Here’s a photo of Troy and Macy today!

 

I just wanted to see how you guys were doing since I haven’t spoken to you for so long. I also wanted to let you know how much we love Troy!  When we first got him from the guy in LA in 2009 I was sure it wasn’t going to work. But after keeping to Cliff’s advice of letting him learn from the other two dogs – he melted right in with our home, and into our hearts!  Just wanted to touch base with you. God bless!

Breeder Comment

It is nice to hear from longtime OwyheeStar Weimlovers! Brad has been a faithful fan for more years than we can remember. Troy was his third OwyheeStar. He took the risk to pick him up when things went sideways with his original family. Typically, we don’t do that kind of thing–ask for help. Nonetheless, everyone needs a bit of help from time to time. This rehome situation seemed like something that might be a win-win situation. We are so happy to hear our assessment was accurate. It is outstanding to get this photo and to learn they are doing well. Thank you!

Skye & Haze

The Blue’s Sisters

      ~ Part One

Skye & Haze will be 5 years old this year!  Time has flown by with them,.. it seems like yesterday we were doing the puppy thing. They are spending most of their winter days lounging around the house… on the furniture of course! We take them out for a good run every day, even if they have to plow through the snow…. they look forward to their outdoor play time, and can’t wait for spring!

Competing and Winning Ribbons

Skye and Haze3

Skye loves to compete in AKC Rally competitions and also AKC Nosework competitions. Haze competes in Rally as well and also is working on completing her Excellent title (like Skye) by this summer. Watch for more on Skye and Haze–coming soon to the blog.

We keep the girls in weekly classes at our dog training club to keep them socialized, and to give them something for their minds to work on. We are delighted with our pups and can’t imagine life without them!  Blessings to you!   ~ Jean & Nancy

 

Breeder Comment

Cliff and I are so very proud of all you two (or maybe we should say four) have achieved. It is no small thing. We know what a huge challenge this breed can bring. As you once explained to me Jean–AKC Rally is like Agility on Steriods. What more do we need to say?

Please watch for the two segments — one featuring Skye and the other Haze. Although they are rarely out of each other’s shadow, for a brief moment they will be a star on our blog. We think you will be interested to learn more about them.

From Ron

In The Kitchen

     ~With Tobryn and Tallyn

(02/12/2018) Have thought about you and Cliff many times in the last few weeks so that means I need to either email, call, etc.  The attached video is Tobryn and Tallyn having a moment in the kitchen.  Tobryn turned 5 last October and Tallyn will be 2 this June.  Yikes…….so true that time marches on.  Hope you have your health back and all is well with Cliff.

(02/13/2018) Great hearing back from you.  Winter has been frigid here, but my home is warm and with the boys in bed at night (under the covers) is sometimes too warm.  LOL

Breeder Comment

Thank you, Ron, for the update. We are glad you are staying warm this winter. The boys look happy and well-adjusted. I was thinking as I received your note, how we spoke about the possibility of getting two ten years before it became a reality. Like you say–time flies by too quickly.

Roxy's Bones etc.We put 1 round bone and one Nylabone in their crates and the rest near the door.  This is how things end up.

Breeder Comment

You may, or may not, remember Roxy and Sage who found a placement with a lovely Spokane area family. There have been challenges with the two girls; however, this family manages them so well. Recently, the visiting critter had disrupted the families sleep because of Roxy’s vigilance–click here to read the story. Then, there was the account of the shoes.

 

Lara keeps us apprised of the antics and whatnot. We sincerely appreciate the home for Sage and Roxy as well, as our relationship.
