The 2020 Blue Weimaraner Calendar is now in YOUR hands! We had over 100 photo submissions and we have narrowed it down to 26 and now it's time for YOU to narrow it down to 12ish. When voting, keep in mind the seasons of the year and try to vote for all seasons. The names of the dogs and owners have been removed so that voting can be as fair as possible. IMPORTANT
: There may be some photos of the same dog. This is because I can't decide which I like better. If the same dog gets enough votes to make it in the top 12ish, only ONE will make it. The owner will get to choose which one they prefer.
How did I choose the finalists? First, I looked for photos that really stood out and caught my eye. Second, I made sure they were of good quality, ie, not fuzzy, grainy or too small. Even if the photo was a great shot, if it was too small or grainy, it didn't make it. Unlike in previous years where every dog got in the calendar SOMEWHERE, this year, only the best will make it.
New this year, the #1 vote getter will win their calendar for FREE (only one). So be sure to tell all your friends and family to vote and SHARE SHARE SHARE!! VOTING WILL CLOSE AT 11:59:59 PM midnight PST on October 28th.

he 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 have started 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 Recommendation 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.
About Our Calendar
In 2008, someone on a forum asked the question: "Is there a calendar for blue Weimaraners?". No one knew of one so Renee Viehmann decided to create one. She created it under her own name for 2008 and 2009 with 100% of the net proceeds donated to Weimaraner Rescue groups in Northern California. While still being the creative mind behind the calendar, in 2010 she turned the calendar over to the Blue Weimaraner Club of America with proceeds to benefit blue Weimaraner rescue in the US and abroad. To date, the Blue Weimaraner Calendar has earned over $10,000 for rescue.
