Attn Blue Weim Owners: Dr. Noa Saffra from UC Davis is working on a study for Weimaraners (not just blues) and I am passing along this message:

Hi group – I am interested in the trait of spontaneous and continuous fetching behavior. In other words, Weims that are obsessed with their fetching toy and will go on tirelessly about fetching. These dogs also tend to present the fetching toy to humans: family and strangers in an attempt to engage them in a throw. I know this trait is not too common in Weimaraners but I am wondering: which of you have/had a dog that does that and what was the dog’s pedigree.
PS- feel free to cross-post.
