~Or What’s a Girl To Do?
~ Fun with Charlie Mae
The Game–the way things work!
This continues to be her favorite game. Grab a sock from wherever she can get it – dirty clothes/clean clothes/from a drawer, it matters not!!! Once she successfully finds one, then she comes and finds us to make sure we see she’s got one.
It’s then time for the chase. This is where we run around the house after her, eventually, she jumps on our bed and with some negotiating she will drop it… It’s SO cute (most of the time), if you don’t co-operate with her plan, she’s been known to take out her frustration on the found sock… We just love this big personality pup!
We are in the middle of the Longhair discussion on the blog. It seems right to showcase one today. What better thing to have this from Will and Jill?
Yesterday, Charlie Mae was on the blog (her silhouette), but there is a lot more to the Longhair than that feathering. It has been some time since I talked about the Longhair Weimaraner. There are a very few OwyheeStar clients that don’t care for the look of the Longhair; however, by and large, most really love the idea–even if they don’t embrace getting one. Not everyone is going to like the same thing. That being said–much of what we have achieved is due to the Longhair DNA pool. Those who voice the loudest objections are often the recipient of the benefits.
Your family are adamant Weimaraner lovers–you have had nearly every look available except the Blue Longhair. We know Ellie, your daughter, hopes to one day get a second Longhair. Cliff and I still remember when you contacted us, and the only thing we had available was Charlie Mae. You met us to see what they were like and soon we heard that you wanted to add her to your family. It makes us happy to know you enjoy this lovely girl. Of course, you still have Murphy–the traditional Blue Weimaraner. He is much-loved as well. Thank you, for being a faithful and devoted OwyheeStar Weim-loving family. Here ( https://owyheestarweimaranersnews.com/2016/03/06/murphy/ ) is the last time Murphy, your Blue Boy appeared on the blog.
Just when you think you have seen it all, along comes something well, not new per say, but unexpected.
Jaeger (pictured at five-weeks here to the left) doesn’t have young photos of him sticking out his tongue. We all know; however, I have shown you some of my favorite such pictures with the same gesture. Who doesn’t laugh?
Not long ago, he was using the Cat Tree–as well as doing some field training. You have to admit he is entertaining. Oh, and pretty darned cute. However, did you get such a snapshot of Jaeger?
Taking It Too Far?!?

Jaeger is sticking his tongue out at me, I know he can be stubborn, but this is taking it too far lol.
The Balanced Weimar
He also ended up standing totally on that bota with all four feet.
Open and Shut
~ Still Learning New Things
Henry loves to let himself back in the house when he is outside. This morning I started training him to close the door. Tonight, he is closing it without me pointing at it, I’m confident he will be closing doors soon. Still such a smart boy.
Henry is amazing, but so are his humans. Kudos to both! Click here to read the last blog that featured this lovely Oregon Weimar.
Yesterday we learned about Ohren’s help in the kitchen–you remember the photo of her helping pre-wash the dishes, right? If not-this her pictured above.
Her sister in Portland (Schatzi) also is a whiz at helping with the dishes. Jeff writes–
The kids are excited to have another dishwasher in the house!! Plus she slept through the night last night so that is a bonus with no pee in the crate. We are rolling now!!

The tree has been decked.
The packages wrapped
The ribbons have been nibbled or snatched for the track.
I am rethinking Christmas and all that comes with
Maybe next year the tree from the ceiling is it.
I ponder the ribbons and wrap.
Metal boxes and trunks will fill the bill.
Boots instead of stockings
with edibles set outside to chill.
The car trunk makes for safe keeping.
While pondering the changes,
Along came a clatter.
From the kitchen, the pie plate left the counter.
Flecks of pumpkin amidst his lips.
Back to the drawing board –I guess it is.
Meanwhile, the Weimar plots and plans.
How about a game of toss the snowball?
On Charlie Mae
~The Annual Tradition
You can tell it’s Christmas time at the Spight house!!🎄🎄🎄. We got Charlie Mae 5 years ago just before Christmas and she wouldn’t leave the lights alone when I was trying to fix them and I wrapped her up. Been a traditional activity ever since!
Until Proved Otherwise
It is said we are believed innocent until proven guilty. The Weimaraner knows how to play the role of innocence. Looks are everything, right?
And when all else fails, and you are caught in the act, what do you do? Then there is denial I suppose. It was the neighbor dog, the cat, the kids, or dad. Well, the fuss on my lip was from me cleaning up you know. Don’t you appreciate my effort?
Didn’t I say it was someone else? I am just the innocent bystander I tell you. Now, where is that Puppuccino?
~ Newest Trick
Henry’s newest trick. Bring me everything I need to take him on a walk.
First, he brought my hat, then my shoes. He has yet to bring an unmatched pair.
Henry Works His Charm
Henry got what he wanted, a hike up Pisgah with his BFF Tule. For extra fun Henry found a wiggly rope (snake) and brought it out to play 😳
And he is a blessing. Most of the time, lol. He loves to chew on wood, he finally has a victim….bamboo coasters. I told Kevin last night that Henry is a wild boy sometimes, but at least he has only ruined our coasters. Lol.
Have we mentioned that we meet the most incredible people in the world? Kiley is amazing with Henry. When she is not orchestrating a family event–like the laundry, an outing, or whatever Henry has planned you might find her saving lives. That’s right — Kiley is a nurse. I am sure she has a more impressive title, but to anyone who ever needed specialized medical care for their self or someone they love, we can agree nurses are incredible.
Thank you, Kiley, for letting us use your video and photos and for sharing your Henry tails. We sincerely appreciate your dedication and your sense of humor.
