President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Heidi
US President Dwight D. Eisenhower was given a Weimaraner in 1955. He called her Heidi, with her nickname being “gray ghost.”
As with many Weimaraners, Heidi was an active dog and as such, enjoyed the run of both the White House and its grounds.
It’s reported that she didn’t enjoy it when the press came to visit though, and twice urinated in the White House when there were receptions or visitors.
As a result, Heidi went to live on Eisenhower’s farm in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Here she got to live a quieter life and had at least one litter of puppies.
In addition, Heidi is a German name meaning “noble and serene.”
