We lost our Molly at 15 due to a stroke and miss her terribly. She was so attached to us. My daughter missed her so when she married that she had to get one too and called her Layla. Her husband is very proud of his ‘Ferrari’ dog.
had them all my life. Duke, Duchess, Spice, Scout, Sam Houston, Miz Boo Radley, Scarlett, Mimi Jo’s Podna, John, Daisy, Kyzer, and now my probably last as a puppy and I named her Spooky as I got her in October. was thinking of Lola or Ruby, but settled on Spooky. Best dog ever as long as you understand the breed. I try very hard as they grow to let my dogs live a life of a dog and not follow me to the bathroom type.
I (along with my fiance) am getting my/our 1st Weim’s at the end of this week!! So far beyond excited!! Neither of us have ever had one. Ive had 2Boston terriers, a solid white Boxer, a Rottweiler, 7 Beagles, an English springer, a Norwegian/ Great Dane mix, a couple of Spitz-(I was very small & only remember 1of them though) & most recently we lost our newest little guy quite tragically who was a beautiful white/gold/ yellow Lab. My heart is crushed every time I lose one. Knowing is a natural part of life never seems to soften the blow. We love them as our children(I esp do as I unfortunately can’t have kids) They truly are family. We love & laugh & build lives w/these amazing animals, & fall apart when they go. Trusting that all that love & providing a good life is enough. My hearts not quite mended yet, but its getting better. We started off with plans for 1little weim girl. The day we got to meet her & introduce ourselves to this amazing little blue/silver blue eyed creature, we saw another more chubby little girl, w/more washed out(but still beautiful) blue eyes. My fiance fell fast and hard for her(As he tends to do! Lol) After a quick talk to their human mommy, we were in business & plans had changed from expecting 1 little blue bundle of fury joy, to 2adorable little blue fluff monsters! Im getting a bit nervous in days leading up to the “big day” & I swear I’m nesting! Lol. I can’t get the house clean enough despite literally scrubbing the floors every day on my hands & knees! Ive pup-ified everything I can think of or see that may possibly even have a chance at being a potential hazard of any kind! Lol. There really wasn’t much in that aspect, as everything was mostly still in tact from the day we got Tango, to all the things along the way we discovered, or He discovered I should say! I think one lil girl will be called Nyx-goddess of the night & since we decided on the fly about the 2nd girl, its still undecided. Ive been searching frantically for names that go well together or are cute for sister weims..but really don’t want to change Nyx. If Nox wouldn’t be so confusing, it’d be prefect! As Nox is the Roman goddess of night & Nyx is Greek. Luna(me) is a contender as is Lola(my bf)-but both are so so common, & I hate common!lol. Astra is a fav of mine also. Along with some different languages words for blue or silver. Artemis, Zypher, & finally a name I love but few understand our know its origin..if they can even say it at all! Haha! But Zzyyzyxx. Ive loved it for so long & have such emotion tied into it. Maybe as a middle name then? Who knows? Wish me luck! I can’t wait! Luckily we’re getting them from a really great person who has taken such painstaking measures to ensure they are as trained as possible when they go to their new homes. She has really gone above & beyond-I couldn’t ask for or expect as much as she’s done already! Super grateful for her! Really loved this page &will return quite often im sure! Thanx 4letting me ramble to ease my new mom nerves a bit! Stay safe!
Maximus was three months old in Oct 2004 and was my first Weimaraner. He was an elegant 85lb silver boy. He lived to 14.5 and went everywhere we went until the end. High end frisbee dog for 10 years. Abby came in 2010 and is now 11.5. We’ve decided to get her a male weim puppy to raise this fall. I have not been the same since losing Max in 2019. He was my son and my best friend. I’m counting on this to soften the person I have become.
We have had three Weims so far, Winnie, Allie and Mara all girls! Best dogs ever!!!!
We are so blessed with a new six week old puppy girl. So cute and quite vocal but not barking just little groans. She is a gem. So seriously considering Jemma. Although before we fetched her we loved the name Jade which we felt suited our male named Jet. Belle is also on the table. Oh what to do when choosing the perfect name for a precious pup.
We named her Ivy.
And Messi is the name of a soccer player from argentina, not portugal
Just got me an 8 week old silver Wiemaraner. A very gorgeous, beautiful, loving pup… just like my grandmother. Think I’m gonna love this pup. I know I loved & still do love my grandmother who passed in July 1966. Therefore, I’m going to name my wiemaraner Sadie Belle after my grandmother because of the love I have for them both. Call this old 72 YOA crazy but that’s just me. God Bless…
Butch, that is so beautiful. Enjoy every moment.
My first dog was named Sheba, she was a pretty girl with a lovable heart and beautiful, piercing eyes. She died about two days ago due to a heart attack, and my little brothers been devastated (he’s young). So, my mom has purchased a new male weim and we are to go get him on Dec 5- Dec 6 2019. It will definitely be something! He’s gorgeous, like a little Prince!

Our first Weim was Arthur, very elegant and distinguished guy 🙂 And we now have Winston, and while he is also very regal, he is more aloof. They are a fantastic breed!!
Corinne H. says
I’ve had 4 litters of Weimie dogs – every one as beautiful and loving as one another. I’ve always given them WINE names – from Chablis, Rhone, Riesling, Cinsaut, Baronne, Merlot – they’re so elegant and appear to fit the names well.
Betty Weber-Maxted says
My 1st Weim was a male named Liberty. He was born on 09/11 lived to be 13 yrs young. My current male Weim is called Skyye “the sky is the limit.” He was born in May 2015. Lovely dogs-I fell in love with the breed after a friend of mine got 1. Both Weims have been my Velcro dogs.
