The Question

Whiner or Weimar

     ~It kind of Goes Together

Someone says we Gray Ghosts are Whiners. Can you Believe it?

Recently, a friend who will remain anonymous sent we a list of reasons someone dropped a Weimaraner off at a shelter. It didn’t happen in America, but people are people worldwide, I think. This is not a joke. Here are the reasons for which he was being released.

 

  • He wakes up his masters at 7 in the morning moaning ‘ cause he wants to go out while their other dog never gets out before 9
  • The Weim sits moaning while they prepare his bowl while the other dog is silent
  • Also, he moans very loudly when he has to wait in front of the baker to the point that passers-by will return (the abandoned Weimar song! )
  • He also is moaning (loudly expresses his joy) when we put his leash to get out (I understand that the walk in the neighborhood was the only walk to get off)
  • He pulls too much — while madame has tendinitis
  • In every way, he moans too often and it doesn’t go well with Monsieur who has high blood pressure.

No reputable breeder wants a pup to end up in rescue. How do we avoid that? We screen applicants. Regardless, things happen. People sometimes say all the right things. As we often share with folks that say they have done their research, “there is no amount of research that will adequately prepare you for what could arise in the process of raising or living with the Weimaraner.” Honestly, this breed either suits you, or it doesn’t. It is demanding of your time and resources. They simply put are not the a-leave-in-the-yard type of dog.

  1. It is a standing joke in our house when asked what breed our Emma is, we reply, “She’s a ‘Whine’maraner. And some days more than others! 🙂 But we do love her so!
