Colorado OwyheeStar

~Office Help

All is well.  All systems are working and we have had only one accident (my fault), otherwise, she’s going outside regularly. She does well at the office and actually asked to go out!

P.S. please put me down for a blue female with the tail.  Let me know when I need to send a deposit.

First, we want to thank Steve for being such a fantastic Weimlover. Now, some of you might wonder he what he means when he says, “with a tail.” Don’t all Weims have a tail? Yes, they do.

Steve means he wants an undocked tail on his next pup–which is what this one has by request. We have a particular protocol we follow for this type of request. For one thing, the deposit is sizeable–because if the person happens to walk away, then finding another home for the pup is an arduous task. It can be done, but it requires a lot of extra work. Therefore, we need more to get on the Wait List for the undocked tail, as well as to reserve such a puppy. Once the decision has been made, as about one-week, then docking the tail also becomes more involved.

Our Penny

~A different Life now

Hey There–here we are with Penny (Polka Dot X Blue). I got her from you some time ago (about 8 years ago)–since then our life has changed a lot. We want to add another OwyheeStar to our family, but let’s update you first.

I am very excited also to share “Penny’s” (Pendleton Juno Kopeck’s) story with you. I initially got Penny (who we picked up in Pendleton when getting her hence the name) when I was single and now Penny has a whole family, a dad and 2 brothers age 1 and 3.  We live on a cattle Ranch (my partners family is 5 generation cattle ranchers in British Columbia) so Penny really is loving the dream and thinks she is now a cow dog. 

My partner (Clint) actually raises border collies and breeds them.  We have 4 borders and Penny.  Penny is the only real indoor dog of ours, except for when puppies come. We have had our challenges over the years but I think that’s owning a Weimaraner.. haha.  She still is my snuggle bug and sleeps in bed, under the covers, at my feet every night…

It is great to connect with you again. Wow–there have been a lot of changes since we met nearly a decade ago. Thanks for sharing with us and returning for another OwyheeStar.

We look forward to the day we meet again, and you bring home your new family member.


Wild Child

     ~ 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

22751261_10155661950964564_1805265951_oHenry 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.

High Standards for Luna

Define Spoiled

I have people tell me that my dog is spoiled, I say “How so?!”
I don’t know many dog owners that don’t have a bed for their dog …
Or even one in each room for that matter!
And I’m fairly certain that many dog owners build a special insert for their vehicles so their pets have a place to rest in the car …
And who doesn’t get pet-icures together?!
So I think I’ve proven my point, besides she’s actually pretty helpful; right now she’s draped around my neck so when my neck gets tired i have a neck pillow ready to go! And she’s very helpful shredding junk mail & opening packages
All joking aside, yes she’s spoiled but I actually do expect more from her obedience wise as well as companion wise than most people would of their dogs. I am a perfectionist and my standards for my spoiled dog are very high … She exceeds almost every time! At five months old she is 49 pounds, sits, stays, downs, heals, doesn’t jump on people (most of the time!), retrieves and we’ve started playing a “use your nose” to find things game … Just to mention a few!

Then There Was Luna…

You’re probably getting sick of hearing how perfect Luna is, but i want to tell you a little bit more about myself.

Two years ago I started a business doing home maintenance & tractor work, I was also working at the housing authority full time. So for the last two years I’ve worked 40 hours a week for the city then evenings and Saturdays for my business.

We’ve always had a dog until last summer when we lost our dog of ten years. I knew that I didn’t have time to raise a good dog nor would it be fair to the dog to be alone so much.

… And then there was the weimer that we got from you before, Gromit he was the best dog ever. We made the decision that when the time came we wanted another weim.

We realized this December that my business had grown to the point that I couldn’t do both anymore, it was time to resign. That also meant that it was time to get my new partner … Luna.

My short term goals for her were to ride well in my truck & not scream like she’s being killed when she was left alone (in the truck or at home) & of course house breaking.

Now back to the start of my note, Luna is perfect. She is a beautiful dog, she is asking (most of the time) to go out to potty and has had very few accidents, she sleeps on our bed in her spot until my husband goes to work then she takes his spot 🙂 she loves the truck. I keep her kennel in the truck with the door off & she chooses to stay in her kennel while we ride most of the time. She also has learned that screaming does her no good so she really doesn’t do that much any more either

I was running my tractor today, I gave her a short ride on the tractor then (with the tractor still running) set her down, she circled the tractor then wanted back up 😃 so i picked her back up; she fell asleep on my lap while I was driving the tractor! She is a challenge at times (when she’s really tired!) but she is perfect for me! I keep meaning to get a squirt bottle, but i keep forgetting!

Thank you for such a perfect partner! ~ Nancy

PS: Luna learned some table manners today, she learned to “take it nice” I was avoiding that lesson because she is so snappy and I thought it would be a big fight … Nope, she takes her treats like the little lady she is!
