LOL! :D I think they write it that way because that's the way it sounds. They just don't know any better. I actually saw an ad in the paper from a 'breeder' (and I use that term loosely) advertising for "Shiatsu" puppies. Imagine that? Puppies and a massage! :rolleyes:

LOL !! That's cute. It sounds like a child trying to get the name right.

I have a shih tzu and have the temerity to write it that way too !! Oh well. But a shiatsu sounds great too. And you don't need to hurry home to let your massage out before it "shiatsu's" in the house.:D

Comments from original sender: They should have added the Masteef or Massive. I have been asked many times if I know how to groom a Tissue (Shih-tzu). A few people have proudly claimed ownership of a Lost A--HOLE (lhasa apso). Today, a woman came in and proudly told me her dog was a licensed AKC Miniature German Shepherd and she paid $800. for it. We also had the St. Bernard Beer Dog once - quite rare! Then there was the Boopier pronounced Boo-pee-a (Bouvier), and we groom quite a few Bitchin' Frizzies (Bichon Frise).

People always asked if Buster (Boston) was a miniature boxer. I answered Lib's background inquiries wth momma was a cock-a-poo and poppa a traveling man. The verdict is still out on Scoopy.

I know a few people who can't say weimeraner... They can spell it, but they can't say it. It's pretty funny (for me).:D

Im one of them!!!:o How exactly is it said????!?!?!?!

I have seen many ads for ****sues among other interesting "breeds"
My favorite was Rockwheeler. And as far as American Cocker Spaneils... let your imagination go wild with that one! :rolleyes:

But in most of the ads for pups from these wonderful dogs, they are VERY good at getting CKC or AKC right!

Hrmmm? BYB'S???? Cant possibly be!!!! ( FYI , extreme sarcasm there)

Weimaraner is "Braque de Weimar" in French.

First, the correct pronunciation of Weimaraner: the W in German is pronounced as a V. thus the German pronunciation is Vi-ma-ronner. However, many people will pronounce it as Y-ma-rayner. Some will just say Weim. Either is correct.

I say it with a W, even though I know it's german. V is just an ugly sounding letter for a pretty dog. :D I say Why-merr- anner.:shrug:

Gee, thanks (says the girl whose real name starts with a V). :p I say it with a "W" too, because ... well ... it's spelled with a "W". ;)

lol I knew that would come back to bite me in the hiney. Ok, let me word it this way: the V in Veimeraner doesn't sound as sweet as a W would. Is that better? It's not really about the letter so much as how German has a way of harshening up everything.:D
