Thread Name: Dog stories....
Subject: RE: Dog stories....
I've been lucky enough to have had some wonderful dogs. I have a real passion for Weimaraners....a lovely and docile breed, very desiring to please, and although excellent hunters, I think they make superb house dogs. Our current Weimie is named Jaeger (Yay-ger) and is a bit different in looks. Weims in the US are only recognized for show by the AKC in the short hair version which more people are familiar with, if they know what the hound looks like at all (I see that William Wegman's Weims, of Sesame Street and calendar fame, are now in a Honda commercial). Jaeger is a blue longhair, very rare and only bred by VALKYRIE WEIMARANERS in Akron.

What he really is is the most gentle of a very gentle breed. A great friend and companion, he has been mauled and wallowed around on by a lot of kids that have lived here, without complaint. Just a wonderful fellow in all ways.
