2/9/09 – BWCA announces new direction of moving toward a new breed:
The BWCA was created to protect, promote, and advance the best interests and welfare of the purebred blue Weimaraner, and to continue to bring their natural qualities to perfection through careful breeding practices.” This is a club for people who love the Weimaraner breed and in particular the ‘blue’ coat color.
We all have been frustrated by the handicaps encountered, the prejudice against and misinformation about the blue Weimaraner. Our goal was to return the blue coat color to equal status with the silver grays but after an unsuccessful attempt in petitioning the WCA to rescind the DQ, we have to accept the reality of that never happening. We also have determined that the AKC is not allowing ‘variety’ status within breeds. Therefore, this club will begin the process of establishing the blue Weimaraner as a separate breed.
We will begin a registry for the blue Weimaraner that will transfer over to our ‘new breed’. We encourage all of you to step up and get involved with your Blues in as many events as possible. We also plan on promoting competitive events – such as Ratings Tests very similar to the WCA tests as soon as possible.
We have established our Constitution, Bylaws, Code of Ethics, Standard and Breeding Regulations for the BWCA. While our direction is clear, our path to achieve it is still evolving. This club will be the ‘stepping off’ point for the developing ‘new breed’.
We hope to include as many blue owners, breeders and those who just love the blue color to join us in this endeavor. We welcome your thoughts, participation and suggestions.
