The Weimaraner’s ancestry is from Germany where it is still favored as a versatile gun dog. Because of its blueish grey coat this breed is often called the Grey Ghost. The color was a challenge for us to replicate, but now we’ve found a painting technique that closely resembles the Weimaraner’s striking color.
With origins from Scotland, this little dog owes its name & existence to piles of rocks erected to identify a boundary or mark a grave. Called cairns, these rock piles became favored hiding places for ground animals. Hence the need for a small game terrier that could roust out the vermin.
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Such a long name for a small companion dog! The Cavalier generally comes in three colorations:
Blenheim – Chestnut red & white.
Tri-Color – Black & white with rich tan markings over eyes, at cheeks & lower legs.
Ruby – Rich red over the entire body.
President Ronald Reagan brought notoriety to the Cavlier by often having a Blenheim on his lap during photo shoots.
