Back to the beginning...
Our 6 pack consists of 6 weimaraners, beautiful babies, one and all. There are 3 boys; Jesse, Colby and Casey and 3 girls; Rose, Kayla and Grace. Along the way we have lost 2 senior rescues, also weimaraners; Sandy and Mae and the most wonderful female, my wife's soul mate, Katie.
Katie was the first, and the most wonderful, followed by Jesse. Colby was our first rescue. Our vet asked us to take him because his owners, well-to-do so and so's, that had no business having a dog, let alone a weimaraner, had given him to a kill-shelter and his time was up. He has his quirks, but he is a beautiful boy.
After Colby came our next 2 rescues, Mae and Sandy. Both of them were rescued from puppy mills. We loved them and made their last years as good as we could. Sandy only lived for a couple of more years, but Mae had 8 good years with us. How can we stop unscrupulous breeders?
Four years ago on our way back from a cruise to Mexico, we swung over to deep southwest Georgia and picked up litter mates, Rose and Kayla. It was my first experience with weim puppies. We loved them from the moment we saw them. Those blue eyes stole my heart. If you have never seen weimaraner puppies, you are in for a treat when you do. They are beautiful!
A little over 2 years ago, we flew to Rochester to pick up our 2 youngest babies. Casey Blue and Sophie Grace were the hit of the airport while we waited for our plane. Originally, we were only going to add one more to our pack, Grace. The breeder was going to keep their last male, Casey. We decided we did not want to separate the two of them and convinced the breeder to sell us both puppies. Casey is our largest and Grace is our smallest. We do not know what we would do without them. Casey is definitely my wife's dog. If you see her, you will see him.
Do you know weimaraners? If you do not, hopefully this blog will over time fill you in on some of the things that make this breed so special.
