We Are In Love

With Our Gunner

     ~he is a Blue Longhair Weimaranerunknown

Hello from Eugene OR. 

We are just beyond in love with our pup Gunner.  At almost 6 months I’m 61 pounds and very healthy! we are completely potty trained, (with only 1 accident since we brought him home), crate trained, and we start our hunting season this week. The vet says I am one of the best puppies they have ever seen –and they think I’m Stunning too!

What is He?

This summer I traveled everywhere with my family I LOVE TO GO IN THE CAR! Here are some photos from my summer!

Wow—we cannot ask for anything more. Thanks for loving Gunner so much and for sharing your lives with him. What a happy boy he is too!

There is no way to understand the Longhair without having the experience. You sharing your experience goes a long way towards helping others see them for what they are–a Weimaraner. The luxurious coat is beyond soft. The imagined hair issue is not as imagined.  People who are drawn to the Weimaraner’s eyelash length hair (because they are tired of dog hair) typically will not even consider one of these fantastic creatures. The preconceived idea that there is hair on the furniture, your clothing, and in the car is not true. All dogs shed. Nevertheless, with a once a month grooming there is little to complain about. We recommend using the furminator to strip out the loose hair and honestly we even like using one on our smooth coats.

Many Weimlovers believe the Longhairs to be easier to manage–citing they are calmer than some of the pocket-rocket types. For sure–they have plenty of energy, but it does seem they are more willing to snuggle up and relax with you.

The puppy to the right is a Longhair Silver Gray Female. She is a previous puppy that joined her family this summer. As you can see, the coat color is not the primary concern. They all are lovely–many people prefer the gray or silver gray coat. I wonder if we would call these the Fluffy Gray Ghost? Or, a Fluffy Blue Ghost.
