~With the Weimaraner (or two)
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.
With Our Two
~ Unique Girls
The 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.
~ 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.
Kailua is opposite. She isn’t affectionate but has a great personality. We call her Miss Independent. Thank you for our babies. Can’t imagine life without them.
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.
My baby girl is almost as tall as I am. She’s growing like a weed, but she still thinks she’s “little”.
Feeling a Little Irish
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
Troy and Macy
~(March 9, 2018)
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!
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!
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 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
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.
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
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.
Two Weim Family Status
~The Dream Come True
Someone loves his baby sister…lol. Have a great evening! Jessica
Freyja is accepted and much loved. It makes us so happy. Thank you, for sharing your joy.
~ Roxy cleans up
We put 1 round bone and one Nylabone in their crates and the rest near the door. This is how things end up.
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.
