Famous Weimaraners 16 Oct 2005 19:33 #6726

Hi! I'm new to this forum and was wondering if anyone could tell me the names of some famous Weimaraners. I know that the Weimaraner in the movie Best in Show was called Arokat's Echobar Take Me Dancing, but can anyone tell me the name of the Weimaraner from the movie, One Hour Photo with Robin Williams? You only saw it for a brief moment, sitting on a chair when Robin Williams's character was imagining himself inside the Yorkins' house. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

she was very famous. grace kelley also had a weimaraner, and both of those dogs belonging to a couple of the most highly visible people in the country at the time contributed to the surge in popularity as well as population of weims in america, and resulted in a lot of backyard breeding to make a profit off the demand. because weims are so intelligent, they were called wonder dogs and a lot of people got them believing the dogs would train themselves. when that turned out not to be the case, and the addition of the attention-hungry temperament and super high energy, the weim population really suffered.

Weimaraners in popular culture

* In the 2002 Jennifer Lopez film Maid in Manhattan, senatorial candidate Chris Marshall (Ralph Fiennes) owns a Weimaraner, which appears in multiple scenes.
* On the show Trailer Park Boys, the character Julian dances with a "dirty old dog", which is a Weimaraner.
* The first president and founder of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, had a Weimaraner called Fox.
* US President Dwight D. Eisenhower owned a Weimaraner named Heidi
* French President Valéry Giscard d'Estaing owned a Weimaraner called Jugurtha, who is said to have had such human habits as laughing or drinking tea
* The photographs of William Wegman prominently feature Weimaraners. His dogs (which included Man Ray—named after artist Man Ray—and Fay Ray—a play on Fay Wray) are the subject of his photos, dressed in human clothes. These pictures are popular both in galleries of contemporary art and as pop culture icons. These "dogs with hands" have appeared frequently on Sesame Street, and occasionally on Saturday Night Live.
* A Weimaraner was also the subject of the music video for Blue Monday by the rock band New Order.
* A neurotic Weimaraner named Beatrice (played by Can. Ch. Arokat's Echobar Take Me Dancing) is featured in the movie Best in Show.
* A Weimaraner was used in the Sylvester Stallone movie "Daylight" (1996).
* Actor Hosea Chanchez (CW's The Game) owns a Weimaraner puppy named Brando.
* Singer Kate Bush poses with two Weimaraner on the cover of her 1985 album Hounds of Love
* A cowardly Weimaraner named Hyena plays a minor role in the Japanese series Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin.
* Brad Pitt owns a Weimaraner named Purdy[1]
* Actor Esai Morales (NYPD Blue) owns a Weimaraner named Frankie
* Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor had a female Weimaraner named Daisy May.
* In the 2007 film Juno, Brenda MacGuff (Juno's stepmother played by Allison Janney) loves Weimaraners. Her fondness for dogs is frustrated by her stepdaughter's allergy to their saliva. During an argument, she exclaims, "When you move out, I'm getting two Weimaraners!", to which Juno responds, in a loud, short burst, "Whoa! Dream big!". In the end sequence of the film, she is seen playing with a pair of them on her front lawn as Juno (played by Ellen Page) bikes off towards the closing scene.
* Grace Kelly (later Princess Grace of Monaco) had a Weimaraner, and there are photos of her playing with him during her trip to Monaco before her marriage to Prince Rainier.
* Bestselling novelist Fiona Walker owns a Weimaraner bitch called Pudding.
* A Weimaraner features on the cover of the album The Best of the Pogues
* F1 racing driver Mark Webber owns a Weimaraner, Shadow.
* A Weimaraner also makes an appearance in the movie Fever Pitch staring Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore.
* Four were used in the video for the Pet Shop Boys song - I Don't Know What You Want But I Can't Give It Any More in 2002

Oliver and Hugo probably have the highest public profile of any living Weims.

The Weim in Marley and me was bred by a friend of mine.

Ethan has been on TV for the Eukanuba dog show. His son, Ch Bzyfeet American Idol, has been on many times for Westminster and Eukanuba. A daughter of his, CH Pike's Peak Annie Get Your Gun will be on in Feb for winning the breed at Eukanuba this past Dec.

Pearl's mother, Ch Sagenhaft Tosca at TriOaks JH,TDX,CD, is in a book about Weimaraners by Lin Stone. Sara, this is your Vera's Grandmother!

Ethan will be in the latest issue of Weimaraner Ways in the Stud dog section.
