A lovely write-up :) The White House has seen many canine residents. I enjoyed learning about Heidi :)


Interesting history on the Weimariner. It's still not a very common breed, I don't think. I've only seen them on television. But they are definitely beautiful.

All the brothers were nicknamed Ike? How strange.

That's a great quote about the "fight" :) Interesting bit of history too, about the way weis were brought into the States.


wow..didn't know that..well I knew all about Ike but not the dog..cool


Such an interesting story. Clive plays regularly on our local green with the most beautiful Weimeraner - who has the most incredible blue eyes. They are such fabulous dogs.


I wonder why all of the brothers were nicknamed Ike?

I love the pictures of Heidi, she has such an alert look on her face.


I did not know the history of the Weimeraner (or what kind of dog Ike had for that matter.)

Your posts are always so interesting, I think I learn something every time I read. :-)


I loved reading about Eisenhower's dogs, especially the Weimeraner. My aunt owned one for a short while...I don't know what happened to it...but I do remember how gentle and soft she was.

Heidi is such a pretty dog. Good post, thank you, Jan!

Weimies are beautiful dogs. We considered getting one before we ended up falling in love with vizslas.

Are you an Eisenhower Neoconservative?
