Boone-sired Litter --Born November 6, 2018
Well, we have our second Boone-sired Dixie litter. We hope you are equally excited. Last November 14, Dixie whelped a litter of 8 pups (5 of which were Silver Gray--and 5 of the 8 pups were Males). This time, however, she whelped 10 puppies--all but 2 are Blue, seven of the 10 are females. (See the Day-One-Photos! )
We know some folks who wait for an OwyheeStar puppy will be disappointed in that there are only Two Gray Females. There are not enough to go around to everyone who is waiting for a Gray or a Silver Female. No matter what, we celebrate each pup's arrival. It will work out as it is meant to be, don't you agree? No, this time around, we do not have every pup placed already. Please contact us via Email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are seriously interested.

We have taken the morning weights--they all look very good. As with human babies, you expect that pups might lose a little weight initially. A couple had dropped about a tenth of an ounce. Otherwise, thus far, they were still holding the birth weight and in some cases had gained a tiny bit. That is amazing considering there are ten pups.
Mama is very attentive and doing well. The pups by all appearances seem to be thriving. Of course, we will be monitoring and hovering over them for the next couple of weeks. We call this the critical two-weeks. During this time the pups are adapting to life outside of Mama--changes are happening. As long as everything lines up, we expect nothing but a positive outcome. Nonetheless, even with a thriving pup, when their body adapts, it is essential that everything lines up or there can be a loss. Thank goodness, this is a rare occurrence for us.

Speaking of that, if you have an OwyheeStar Weimaraner it would mean a great to us to receive a photo and a paragraph or two via email--to help with the blog. Thank you, for considering sending us something.
To the left, you will find several of the updates posted for pups from the 2017 Dixie X Boone litter. We thank everyone who sent us photos and information about their pup and the adventure. It means a lot to us.
If you are getting a pup from this litter or are curious about them, there is no better information than seeing what the previous offspring from the same parents are like. This information is invaluable for us as well. It affects our decision as to whether to repeat a specific mating or not.
