Kula Bleu and Company
The infected and obsessed blue fans....
Arlene (lives with Arliss), and has something to say about the Blue Weimaraner.
She says, "The folks with a Blue Weimaraner are the most infected by the Weimlover disease." Arlene may be right.
Nevertheless, there are some staunch opponents hanging around. Some folks still embrace the notion that a "Blue" is not a Weimaraner. Nonetheless, those that are in love with the Blue Weimaraner, cannot be dissuaded. If you are part of the Blue Weimaraner fan club, please read on as we briefly discuss more thoughts and what makes a certain blue-coated Weim notable.
Seriously, after so many years would this matter?
Naysayers often try to discredit the Blue Weimaraner saying that someone threw another dog in the mix along the way. Even if they did, it has been many years, (in fact, it has been decades), and by now these genes have weaved through the Weimaraner breed. You also need to take in account the Homer Carr report.
The foundation stock of any breed originated from a mix of dogs, albeit a carefully selected (and culled) collection. Regardless, we have arrived here with a Weim that looks identical, acts the same, and one that is, likewise, in every way with one exception--the coat color. Some people want to form another breed club. There is a discussion on changing the name too! We understand their motivation; however, two blues parents (when mated) will more often than not, produce a litter containing silver and gray pups. What are these pups? That is food for thought. Will the producing litters require that one parent have the anomaly whereby they don't carry the DNA marker for the gray or silver-gray coat? If so, then all the pups in the litter would have the blue coat. Who can guess what will happen? Whatever occurs, some of you will agree we love this coat-color. We want to see them continue to gain popularity.
What makes them Notable?
Those who achieve national headlines are few and far between. This goes for the gray, the silver-gray, and the blue Weimaraners. It has been said that the blues are not proven. That statement is meant to say they have not earned titles, prizes, or notoriety. Each year, a few more (Blues) have participated in events whereby they have earned a title, an award, or a prize. There are not as many "Blues" to begin with; however, only a fraction of the Weims involved in competition sport the blue coat color.
The average OwyheeStar client is not going to compete in a hunt test, or formal event. Many do hunt with their Weimaraner; some do not. Quite a few are involved in varied activities. Two families in the Boise area have their Blue Weimaraner enrolled in an agility program. Who can say how far Gob will go, because he got a very late in life start at his agility. He loves it though. Quite possibly neither Gob or Ellie will win an agility event. Nonetheless, their achievements are notable--Ellie is being handled by a high school student. That in and of itself is admirable don't you agree?
The Blue Weimaraner that becomes a neighborhood icon, stand-out star, is notable in their own right. They have their little corner of the world where they make a big difference. Yes, we would like to see every person get involved in something. It makes them a better handler, and expands their Weim's horizon. Certainly, the Weimaraner will become more socialized, better behaved in crowds, and a welcome addition in public. This cannot be said of every Weimaraner.
Cliff and Shela have most likely overlooked several notable achievements by OwyheeStar offspring.
