Friday Night we bought a 5 week old female Weirmaraner puppy. My wife named her Lily. I've kinda been looking for a dog that I can run with. A mastiff is a great dog, and will always be my first choice in breed...sadly, they weren't built to run. So, after discussing various breeds, we came to a comprimise at the Weim. It'll be a while before she can join me for runs, but the kids are really enjoying her in the interim.
